Cops!

Cops!

Postby Robert_S » Sat Sep 03, 2011 8:30 am

Is it still on the air? Does anyone here watch it?


Also, isn't this an awesome forum theme? :fall:
What I've found with a few discussions I've had lately is this self-satisfaction that people express with their proffessed open mindedness. In realty it ammounts to wilful ignorance and intellectual cowardice as they are choosing to not form any sort of opinion on a particular topic. Basically "I don't know and I'm not going to look at any evidence because I'm quite happy on this fence."

This branch needs to get tagged as NSFW, immediately. :lay:

What?

If you don't work somewhere that being seen with this theme on your screen wouldn't earn you a huge boost in popularity, possibly even a raise and promotion, then you must work in a horrible place. Get out while you can!!!

If my fellow teachers saw this, I would immediately lose my rep as a hard nosed practioner of the brutalist school of maths teaching...

If some student isn't really giving their all, perhaps a note of on piece of similarly themed piece of stationary might provide just the edification and encouragement they require.

Robert, I take back any nice things I've ever said about you. And to think I waited patiently in the car that day. :nono:

Isn't it grand that everyone who posts in this thread keeps it in New Posts, spreading the awesomeness of the theme to pass through more cornea and lenses of more members, there to be projected onto more rods and cones, from which many optic nerves will send happy little packets of joy to be decoded into pure bliss by the visual cortex, of each Rat who opens the thread. :swoon:

Sorry, it had to be done.

I was looking through the membership of the "Hide *" usergroups and NOT ONE of us had hidden Reality TV. It is a shameful state of affairs and is a black mark on the soul of the forum that there are not at least five people in that group.

Of course, if we all started a load of reality tv threads in this forum, the style would show up in new posts a lot more.

Just saying. :tea:
