Default My last name has become somewhat of a joke at the school I work at

Some of the younger elementary school kids act surprised that my last name could actually be Shorter. And some of the older ones just blatantly make fun of it.

Question

Are you sure it's not your psychological thesis thing they are making fun of?

One kid said to me "Mr. Shorter I'm the only one in here who doesn't make fun of your name." which was far from the truth. But kids have a tendency to generalize and blow things out of proportion.

Nowadays i'd think 5'11 is like normal height for a guy. I'm 5'11" and all those younger guys seem taller than me.

Its not like oh god your name is shorter and you're a giant, how ironic.

Try to impress the kids. Show them you are hip and cool. Wear skinny jeans to school and tell them you listen to Drake.

i really think the fact that he uses his real name to post on all of these boards means he really genuinely thinks he's on to something and that CW is an aspie not some kind of brilliant troll

it's kind of remarkable how all of threads feature people laughing at him and disproving him easily and he comes back and argues that they don't get it and people are vouching for him

i'm pretty sure the only person who thinks he's not a real person is duo, who seems to think people can troll that deeply and consistently, which they fucking can't.

i mean he feels the same way about banana and TOC as well, and it's like he may want to live in a world where people with mental illness or, in banana's case, unredeemable douchebaggery, don't exist. and i don't necessarily blame him for that.

perhaps it's the fact that nobody lets him down gently. like "listen man, you need to develop this hypothesis a lot more. it's needs to be verified through extensive double-blind experimentation. then you need to publish your results in a peer reviewed journal of psychology, which means you have to convince someone besides the school social worker that your hypothesis merits further study under the supervision of more qualified scientists who are making sure you're not falsifying your data."

nah i even saw that

Hi kimani,

I can see that you have put much thought into this system, and hard work as well. Whether anything comes of it, industriousness is admirable in its own right.

On the surface, it looks like their may be some issues with your system. I will not go into detail, as many ohers here have pointed them out.

To those of us that are seeing it for the first time, it seems confusing.

I think it would help your presentation to state the goal of your system. What are you trying to acomplish?

Then, devise a way to measure the usefulness of it. Your system should be able to make useful predictions that help to acheive it's goals.

Lastly, use properly devised experiments to objectively prove that the system is capable of meeting it's goals.

Once you have done those three things, it is just a matter of testing, refining, testing, refining, until the system is honed to a high degree of sucess.

Then there will be no need to ask for opinions. You will know that your system is correct, and you will be able to publish results for others to replicate and validate. Once your system is accepted and in use, it will be a benifit to the world at that point.

Regards, Canis

(for example)
he just doen'st seem to get it

You should tell them you post on a smashing pumpkins messageboard.

They probably don't even know what a messageboard is.

actually i've found there's more than a few boards that have done this


remember not every place on the internet is a place where people are unspeakably cruel to each other. some of them actually make sure everyone behaves
