howard stern cell research--has been shut down--notice how stem looks like stern--unless you have a microscope you might not even notice--howard wants you to do stern cell research
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:12am Professor Nick:

And drive-in theaters aren't typically on great land...golf courses not really analogous.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:14am Professor Nick:

Drive-ins will come back because people like retro stuff. Next up: hula hoops, seersucker suits and smoking on airplanes.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:14am Malcolm Jamal Warner:

  Thu. 9/9/10 1:21am Professor Nick:

Mike Meyers wore a Julia Roberts mask when voicing Shrek.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:32am Professor Nick:

What about culture? I think you might be referring to culture when speaking about society.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:33am Nicole:

Yay, slumber party on the 23rd! Pajamas and all.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:34am Professor Nick:

Culture= society + history? I don't know...
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:37am Professor Nick:

We can't avoid society/culture unless we completely detach ourselves from what is human. Every interaction leads us to behave in a way that ensures either our survival or our comfort.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:40am Nicole:

Social s'mores.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:41am Professor Nick:

Citizens arrest!
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:42am efd:

When a rule hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a more.

And, goodnight.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:43am Professor Nick:

Isn't keeping to yourself a social value? It seems that keeping to yourself may just be a more extreme form of being polite/reserved.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:49am Professor Nick:

I was at a Milwaukee Brewers game tonight and I was around so many idiots that I wished for the end of civilization. And then the game ended and I was fine.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:54am Professor Nick:

Dave, the accumulation of garbage in low atmosphere is called the Kessler Syndrome. This has come up recently due to the number of "zombie satellites" that are hurtling out of control around the Earth.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:55am Professor Nick:

The last president to have a beard was Benjamin Harrison, the last to have a moustache was Grover Cleveland.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:55am Professor Nick:

Sorry, William Howard Taft had a moustache.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:56am Professor Nick:

And Dan Akyroyd as Richard Nixon.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:56am Professor Nick:

Harrison was president until 1893, Taft until 1913.
  Thu. 9/9/10 1:58am Professor Nick:

Taft was the Orpus of his time...he lost something like 50 pounds over a year by playing golf and then gained it back.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:00am Professor Nick:

No, David Blaine is turning into Orpus and diving into a thimble. Close though, Dave.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:07am Professor Nick:

Old people, shut-ins and politicians.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:08am Professor Nick:

It's a mixture of the Christian missionary spirit and the belief that America could "civilize" others used by presidents like Andrew Jackson and Woodrow Wilson.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:09am Professor Nick:

Conservatives tried to get a flag burning amendment in the Constitution in the 1990s...needless to say, it was unsuccessful.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:11am Professor Nick:

Water (or alcohol) finds its level, I suppose.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:12am Professor Nick:

Crack enthusiast?
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:15am Professor Nick:

Media outlets are DESPERATE for stories that will rile people up...if they covered good things or things that might take time to develop, their ratings would plummet. It is a feedback loop where news channels crap out stories, viewers eat the crap and then crap out money to buy advertised goods.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:19am Professor Nick:

My revenge will be opening Ground Gyros at the Ground Zero site. My gyros stand will feature a non-denominational church/mosque/temple as well as an arcade.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:21am Professor Nick:

Nay, Sandy. I am a different Nick.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:21am Elwyn:

I think I'm a born-again agnostic. I may be Christian who's studied philosophy but years of God's inactivity has changed my mind.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:22am Professor Nick:

I was a practicing Catholic until it came time to choose whether to get confirmed or not. I also remember being forced to write a paper supporting the pro-life agenda. I took the F on that one.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:23am Professor Nick:

Symbols are crutches that people can lean on, relate to in the absence of substance.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:26am Elwyn:

But Professor Nick, I love BAND symbols. I want to be able to write the four Led Zep symbols in coffee froth one day.

Overall, you're right, especially with brain dead sports fans.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:28am bennett4senate:

how about using your holy book & flag turducken to start a bbq to cook and eat food to sustain yourself with?
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:29am Elwyn:

Guys! You also need to burn other stuff along with the flag, Bible and Koran. Burn list:

* Dianetics by L Ron Hubbard - the Scientologists' (un)holy book
* something by Richard Dawkins to offend the atheists
* Mein Kampf
* whatever stuff Buddha wrote
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:29am Professor Nick:

Don't you think that all of the shouting comes from the liberalization of communications? Everyone can start a blog, tweet, post Facebook updates, etc. Now, we are seeing that most people don't have anything good to say.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:30am bennett4senate:

if u guys are serious I'll bring in my hibachi, its portable, and you can run a few mics out to the patio from the Mackie
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:34am Professor Nick:

We fetishize the scars of 9/11. It is the same thing as people who are obsessed with their own dysfunctions. If we don't have those scars, we feel like we lose something fundamental when we actually start to heal when we face hard truths.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:39am Professor Nick:

Michael Bloomberg in....Rollerball!
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:41am Professor Nick:

No, we won't be more open minded...once we get money, we will fall into the same traps as the baby boomers and others. There is something about the American character that has created a durable template.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:43am Professor Nick:

Jesse Ventura did an episode on 9/11 for his show Conspiracy Theory.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:44am Professor Nick:

Sic semper tyranus.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:44am Professor Nick:

Ford's Theater, "The American Cousin" was the play.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:45am Professor Nick:

Our American Cousin
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:47am Professor Nick:

Republicans and Democrats in Congress also participated in the economy's downfall.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:49am Professor Nick:

Ben Bernanke
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:49am Professor Nick:

During the Wilson administration, 1913 I believe....
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:50am Professor Nick:

The Federal Reserve was created as a way to keep money on hand for local and regional banks...there were depressions in 1858, 1873, 1893 and 1907 that encouraged a central bank.
  Thu. 9/9/10 2:54am Professor Nick:

good night, fellas.
  Fri. 9/10/10 9:51am Kendall!:

Gahh can't believe I fell asleep before this. Last night people for at least 3 weeks.
