So today, I may or may not have been at the CC with Claire, eating my dinner. I may or may not have seen JECH walking towards us. I may or may not have freaked out and ran inside.

I may or may not be extremely weird.

Jacques Quotes!!

We do kinda share a border with [Russia], but if we bombed the Bering Strait, people would laugh at us.

That economic system was kooky! *begins to spell out kooky due to laughs from the class* K-O-O-K-Y! KOOKY!

The German people are a people on the move. So they made a car for every German.. then put a couple guns on the side and invaded France, but that was Step 2.

Nuclear sumbarines are a lot more cool than diesel submarines.

When I was in Argentina doing research, I found these top secret files in the basements of old government officials'houses.
If this academic gig doesn't work out for me, I can always go on the black market and have a pretty good life until the Feds catch up with me.

We like to tell ourselves that about International Affairs. We thought we could take Saddam out of Iraq and we'd have Belgium. ... Iraq didn't really become Belgium.

The League of Nations became the League of Some Nations

The US would have the same vote as France or Belgium. So... Belgium's on my mind today.

(On why PRC won't give up its hold on Taiwan)
But that's a parenthesis.

Russia's military spending isn't so great, but they had so much accumulate during the Cold War that they could destroy the world any day of the week.

(On the topic of how the G5-8 came about)
The French are always concerned about being part of the top group.

(On the reasoning for why Canada is on the G8)
"That is the power of the US. Canada has no right being on the G8. But the US was lonely over there against all the European powers. Russia can use it's power and flex its muscle to get itself on the G8. The US can use its muscle and get Haiti on there."
(Going through the G8 men in the picture)
JECH - I have no idea who that is
Girl in class - That's Bill Gates!
JECH - That doesn't surprise me.

I received JECH's book in my mail today and in leafing through it briefly I discovered some potentially distressing news for some of you (i.e.... Selena):


In the book's preface he has a shout-out to his partner, saying that she has "stuck with him through thick and thin" through writing the book and has now agreed to do so forever, adding that "I hope she knows what she's getting into."

It made me think "awww" but Selena, if it has the opposite effect on you, I will at least offer you my shoulder to cry on.

Hello lovely ladies.

I know this is going to seem crazy, but I think we are all need of some spiritual rejuvenation. Like... give life again to our lethargic-have-school-be-fucking-over-with spirits.

So, I propose we do just that. I'll make some tea, I'll have some positive words for us to read. We can just get together and motivate people on getting work done.

Maybe this will help?

How does Thursday night sound? I was going to try and have it tonight, but I feel this is too short of notice. Thursday nights are a little more laid back anyway. Get back to me and let me know what you think.

I'm going crazy. I was laying in bed the other night and after three hours of trying to sleep and failing, I just said to myself in my head, "I am fucking losing my mind."

Jacques Hymans Quotes

"There has to be a slight change to the schedule. It seems I have to make a trip to Paris to talk to the Ministry of Defense"

"I am sure you are all familiar with a situation very much like this. Perhaps your parents say 'You have done wrong, and for your punishment you cannot have this delicious spinach.' And maybe you didn't want the spinach initially, but because they said you couldn't have it, you will fight tooth and nail to get that spinach!!"

"The Soviets were an interesting case, because there was no way they were coming."

"Oh my God!! I'm spending 2,000 Lira on a slice of pizza!!"

"...then [Chamberlain] has to listen to Hitler jabber at him for 6 hours; at that point he is willing to sign anything… so he comes back to Britain, wipes the vomit off his lip and says:
'My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time... Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.'

and basically he was talking to himself."

*Speaking for Hitler* "I've looked you in the eyes Neville Chamberlain, you don't even have the stomach for air travel, let alone war. You won't stop me from taking Poland."

"If you want the Mt. Rushmore of Realists, you have those four (Richelieu, Bismarck, Stalin and Teddy) and Teddy wouldn't even have to move!"

"And they were also important for whale bones! Women of the time would use them in their corsets. If you wanted to trim your figure, you'd strip your 26" waist into a 19" waist. You see these old movies where the women faint, well that actually happened all the time so that women could have these 19" waists. It's sorta ironic that the whale would serve that purpose."

"Watch out, because we have really really big guns."

"The Japanese didn't believe they were really big guns, and they thought they could play this game too. So the Japanese went searching around the country in various temples and procured the largest bells they could find. Then they brought these bells to the beach and put them on their side so it would look like they were big guns. However, not only did the Americans have big guns, they also had telescopes."

"The Japanese tried adopting styles of the West... they also started growing facial hair... er tried to grow facial hair."

"We make them cut the rays and leave them with just the red ball."

Jacques Hymans speaking in a lower voice makes him sound EVEN SEXIER. WOW. I DIDN'T THINK THAT WAS POSSIBLE.

Selena, you better give us a detailed report on that lunch thing.

(Know what else is sexy? This icon. Mmmm, cannibal Elijah with a Bible.)
