    There should be an exhibit in which you tell someone your major and he/she makes fun of it.

    Don’t worry Penny – the only reason scientists troll the arts is because they’re not smart enough to understand something unless it can be measured and classified!

  4. Freak says:

    @Styg: By that logic, mathematicians aren’t smart enough to understand anything.

    Wait . . . damn!

  5. John Jay says:

    I troll the arts. All day. All night.

    Pure profit can most definitely be measured and classified! Human stupidity is harder to measure, but still amusing to observe. 😀

    Renold: “Human stupidity is harder to measure, but still amusing to observe.”
    That’s because human stupidity knows no bounds. For every mile science marches on, stupidness goes three. For example, not asking your friend who went through the other door what was there. This is why we have Darwin Awards.

    You should turn the tables and do their jobs by stealing their ideas as “research.”

    i believe it was Einstein who said this, “there are only two things that are infinite, the Universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the universe.”

    If anyone needs evidence of human stupidity, just do a stint working retail.

    @ MrGBH: Or watch the political news for a few hours…

  12. Brian says:

    @reynard61…specifically Fox, though MSNBC has its share of wingnuts.

    In my high school you got a ‘study hall’ period where you got stuck in the back row of some other active class. Mine in 12th grade was in the Arts class. One day when I had no work to do, the teacher told the class the assignment was to do a quick sketch of a surreal topic of their choice. Having nothing else to do, I wrote down a couple things I would have sketched if I had any drawing ability or was actually taking the class and handed that to the teacher for a lark. At the end of the period, it became obvious to the teacher that the only other person in the room who knew the definition of the word surreal was me. Jenny, you have a lot more on the ball than those students did. Don’t sweat it when a non-artist has a great idea. Instead be smug that you can actually render your ideas in a viable form. (and then steal theirs! -Yoink!)

    heh I wonder if one could get away with a grant for that. 🙂

  15. Radylan says:

    that is the best project ever… I should change majors again

    The best option EVER – pay a dollar, go through a random door. After that KILL the guy at the door. Viva la Revolucion! Viva le Monsieur Guillotine! Defenestrate the prime minister!
