Had a fight with my Astronomy professor who tried to tell me how the solar system became flat after being a cloud of dust. he tried to use data that was 14 years old and was disproved years ago, maybe it was thought to true when you went to college but now it’s 2014.

So you’ll excuse me if I keep asking why you like me.
I am so out of practice.
I can’t even draw a rose right now.
I have a story for my followers..
Okay so I go to a little school called the University of Maryland. Our mascot is the Terrapin, whose name is Testudo. In front of our main library stands a bronze statue (okay there are like 5 of these statues around campus but this one is the original and most important) of Testudo the Terrapin. It’s a campus landmark and is really important to the student body (I’ll get to that in a second)
See, he’s pretty right? See where his nose is more gold than the rest? Well legend has it that if you rub his nose, it brings you good luck. However, on finals week, rubbing his nose isn’t enough; you must rub his nose and place a sacrificial offering at the base of the statue. By the end of finals week, Testudo looks something like this
People offer anything from their empty Starbucks to vodka bottles to a fully lit Christmas tree. Some of the most famous offerings include an uprooted lamp post, a traffic sign, a bicycle, a television, you get it. It’s pretty ridiculous. Well last night, some fucker decided to be an idiot and light candles in front of Testudo, and this is what happened.
Testudo is fine, but all our offerings were burnt to a crisp, so basically we’re all screwed when it comes to our final grades.
Now my apartment is located about 40 yards away from this statue, so this morning I went over there to survey the damage, and this is what I found:
Get well Testudo! Don’t smite us all just because of one drunken idiot!
And that’s my story. Learn something new every day huh
Long Live Testudo!
How I met your mother tonight! so excited! Too bad I’m in class until 9 :(
