Here I offer a reply to the esteemed Dr. Brash's intentionally verbose advertisement for the five-year old competition.

How unreservedly generous of our authoritative and honorary (or inveterate) chief to give away actual bonanza in return for unworthy achievements. Hurrah! Henceforth, he's a noble chap, twenty-four-seven.

To the victor belong the spoils...
(William L. Marcy)

(and I expect what's-his-name, Meyran Kraus will bag all the booty anyway!)

 


THE SPECIAL CATEGORY

1st - Meyran Kraus with:
Edwin Arlington Robinson: Richard Cory

 

2nd - Larry Brash with:
ESP is most commonly known as the "sixth sense." It is sensory information that an individual receives which comes beyond the ordinary five senses sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. It can provide the individual with information of the present, past, and future; as it seems to originate in a second, or alternate reality.

History:

The term "ESP" was used in 1870 by Sir Richard Burton. A French researcher, Dr. Paul Joire, in 1892 used the term ESP to describe the ability of person who had been hypnotized or were in a trance state to externally sense things without using their ordinary senses.

However, the phenomena of ESP activity has been indicated much earlier, some say even in Biblical times. Although there is no clear evidence as to the certainty of the phenomena it has attracted the attention and enthusiasm of many throughout the centuries.

In the 1920's a Munich ophthalmologist, Dr. Rudolph Tischner, used ESP in describing the "externalization of sensibility." Then in the 1930s the American parapsychologist J. B. Rhine popularized the term to include psychic phenomena similar to sensory functions. Rhine was among the first parapsychologists to test ESP phenomena in the laboratory.

The first systematic study of ESP was conducted in 1882, when the Society for Psychical Research was founded n London. The journals of this society Proceedings and Journal were published as well as other publications in the United States and the Netherlands. Soon other countries were reporting similar findings.

However, these first studies of ESP were rarely experimental. The studies consisted of mostly spontaneous incidents that were located. Many of the individuals studied were self-claimed "sensitives" or psychics. Rarely were they examined under anything resembling laboratory conditions. The researchers conducting the examinations resembled prosecuting lawyers. The subjects were bombarded with questions, those standing up the best were judged creditable.

=

Steve approaches a bus stop and notices a man waiting there. He says, "do you have any idea when the next bus is due?" The man replies that it will be here in three minutes and thirty-four seconds.

"How can you be so definite that it'll be in exactly three minutes and thirty-four seconds?"

The man replies: "Just wait and you will see." Sure enough, three minutes and thirty-four seconds later, at the precise second, the bus stops by the curb.

Steve is puzzled, but dismisses it cynically: "Crap! In my opinion, I consider that it occurred only as a coincidence... an error".

"No error", the man informs him. "The next bus will be here in exactly three minutes and fifty-nine seconds". Again the bus appears exactly on time, correctly as he had predicted. He repeats the feat for the following three buses, each specific one appears right on time.

Steve's amazed and he tells the man that is just startling. He's never seen anything concerning this before. "Just how did you happen to find this?"

The man replies: "It is called ESP".

Baffled, he replies, "And just what is that?"

The man indicates it means Extrasensory Perception.

Steve, convinced that there is something in this, cries:

"Wow, this is real cool! I wonder if I can learn it, too? I want to be able to do it and impress people".

"Sure, no problem. I'll teach you this rare secret. Just come down this lane with me".

They go down the lane. The man tells him to drop his trousers.

"No chance, don't be silly!" he cries. The man dismisses his concerns, "you can trust me, friend; it is quite harmless; don't be worried". He drops his pants very cautiously.

"Now bend over".

Horrified, he screams "NO, Stupid! Sorry, no way am I going to do that!"

"Nonsense! Don't worry! It is alright; trust me, friend; don't panic, sir, do not; I'm sincere indeed".

He bends over warily and, as fast as lightning, the man drops his trousers and rips his stiff penis hard into Steve's arse in a second, before he can react.

Steve cries in horror. "SHIT! I JUST KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO DO THAT!"

The man replies "See, there you go, you're getting the hang of it already."

 

3rd - Adrian Hickford with:
[A famous mnemonic for the digits of pi (HOW=3, I=1, NEED=4 etc.) anagrammed into another pi mnemonic.]

How I need a drink, alcoholic in nature, after the heavy chapters involving quantum mechanics.
=

Dear Student,

You have been selected as a representative of the student body at the University of Glamorgan to provide the University with input regarding areas of your student experience that you are satisfied and dissatisfied with.

You have recently received the Student Satisfaction Survey in the post. The survey gives you the opportunity to comment on both academic and more general experiences. It only takes 20 minutes to complete, and gives you the chance to win one of six cash prizes: one prize of 500 and five prizes of 100 are to be won by those who return the completed survey.

This is your chance to have input into the running of the University - both to instigate future changes if there are things you do not like, and to let the University know what us being done well. Your replies are confidential, and the results of surveys will be made available to students and staff in the autumn.

It would be very much appreciated if you could take the time to complete the survey and drop it into the post. Your contribution is essential to creating a University you are satisfied with and proud of.

Yours sincerely,

Adrian L. Webb

Professor A. L. Webb

Vice-Chancellor

CF37 1DL.

Dear Sir,

I acknowledge receipt of your letter regarding the student survey. However, I have not even replied because my conscience did not let me.

I'm only even here to avoid working,see! Next, I'm so very dubious about the purpose of the University because I do not believe that, through your courses, you try to develop students into more rounded, knowledgable people, but indoctrinate them into innocent work in the business world, without the understanding to ever stand up versus the crazy capitalist system. Hence that way, the convenience profits of you guffawing finance fatcats remain intact in the region of 888,855,544,444,443,321,110,000,000,000 per year, don't they? Except as a student of virtually no cash, I have to pay fees tax cut near the zenith every year! Your daft robot Blair states he needs it for the 'economy', but aren't billions used in a massacre of innocent gulf people every day?

Thus no you eunuch, I don't want to help 'improve', that is, exult, this insane heap of evil shit.

Yours disgustedly,

Joe Fathallah,

Socialist Party Representative,

University of Glamorgan.

P.S. I see, faggot, if you ever read this disrespect then I die a slow, painful and futile death with an uzi, but isn't it funny that is what most icy dictators do?
