I don't want to argue about when A New Hope's first act ends. [Sep. 13th, 2011|08:43 am]
Two-bit argosies of blood and wonder
The comedy writing class was outstanding, but at one point I got paired off with a control-freak engineering student for a dialog exercise. He shot down all of my ideas, and proceeded to vomit out an awful piece of unfunny dreck. It was painful listening to him read it out loud to the class, seeing the confused glassed-over reactions, and knowing that my name was also attached to it. I knew this guy was bad news when he started arguing with one of the teachers about Star Wars minutiae.

Also a clue: his Atheist Student Alliance t-shirt. I mean, I'm an atheist too, but it takes a certain type to advertise it on a shirt. When you go sporting it on your body, it means that you are interested in being right all the time and making everybody else know they're wrong.

I'm an atheist (and a Star Wars nerd) and I would never join something called the Atheist Student Alliance. If I'm not into organized religion why would I want to join an organized non-religion.
