    That comic made me feel sad. Is there some reason you felt like posting it?

    Language professors HATE me!

      The best ones make you stop and think. Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you get mad, sometimes you cry. I'd say he did well on this one.

      •  Those who never shared Louis' experience (0+ / 0-)

        ...are the truly deprived. Some people made it through youth and adolescence without any trouble at all in their suburban paradises. No 'depression' or acting out or bewilderment at what was expected of them as they grew up.

        I can't decide if that's a good or a bad thing to have happened in one's life.

        Maybe they're the ones who won't get it. Eh. No biggee, but the lack of empathy could be troubling. Either way, I GOT IT the moment I read it.

    •  The adventures of Louis are always melancholy (10+ / 0-)

      because they capture the reality of the agonies of junior high.  Which are not so different from the agonies of adulthood, except as kids we're less hardened to them.  

      I like the adventures of Louis because they're true.  They're not funny ha-ha, but there's a wry twinge of recognition.

      I have a couple of family members who have never left the Passive/Aggressive phase of life, but IMO we all have experience with it from some time in our life.

    •  I find it hard to believe... (0+ / 0-)

      ...that your comment wasn't pure snark.

      I realized it only AFTER I finally read your sig...good one!

      I sure as fuck HATE those Internets Tubes ads...they are annoying. I find myself thinking along the lines of "Why would a language professor HATE something that makes his job easier? Because he's a socialist elitist college professor who will lose his job? Because, if it really works and will help everyone learn languages, that professor's lifelong dream of universal verbal communication will be achieved?

      Or is it because the ads for said communication tool are SO GODDAMNED FUCKING ANNOYING as well as BOGUS?

      I'm going with the last one. I hate them, too.
