Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Helpful hints

Total Drek Helpful Hint #1: When meeting people for the first time, it's wise to avoid saying whatever comes to mind. This is especially true when meeting visiting faculty or going to conferences. It's also helpful when meeting the family of one's significant other.

This may seem difficult but, really, it cuts both ways as hopefully if you avoid telling your girlfriend's father about what a lynx she is in bed, he will decline to comment on how you're a good-for-nothing freeloader. This sort of discretion will also often extend to various tasks- so as a guest you may be asked to help set the table, but probably will not be asked to kill a rat with a broom and your bare hands.*

The more you know.

* Though this is by no means certain, believe you me.**

** Yes, I'm fucking serious!

Special thanks to the fabulous webcomic xkcd.

And you a cool nickname out of it.

Wasn't it the "Ratzenzinger" or something like that?

I just remember thinking it's Drek the Rat Slayer had a nice ring to it.

Officemate: If I recall it's (more or less) "Rattenfanger" with the umlaud omitted. My knowledge of German is rather poor.

Alan: Well, it's hard to argue with that...
