I've got an idea... Let's ALL copy/paste pappy's post with our own least favorite subject plugged in appropriate places. It's both amusing, and an ironic method of argumentation that no one has ever thought of before! Though it is true that Social Science is my least favorite subject, on further co...

These posts have seemed at least sort of funny, though from the way people have been reacting you'd think Pericles, or whoever, had killed someone. The nice thing about this board is you don't have to read the posts if you're not interested in th...
