Dont mean to be hatin’… buuuut… this whole, ‘Hey, lets buy Benedict Cumberbatch a whole bunch of stuff for his birthday’ idea… is just a tad creepy… just saying… just putting it out there…
Another beautiful gem from a university at...
(We’re taking a calculus final. The TA is a well-known Lord of the Rings fan, and we’ve had running LotR jokes all semester.)
TA: “Okay, guys, everyone look at me. We’ve been over the rules, but just in case: no notes, pencil your answers in on the scantron sheet, and graphing calculators only – no more ‘can I just used my cell phone’ nonsense.”
Student: “[TA's name], my calculator batteries just died! What should I do?”
TA: “Here, I’ve got a big box of spares.”
Student: *struggling* “I can’t get this packaging open…”
Student 2: “Here, I’ve got a pocket knife.”
TA: “And I’ve got a pair of scissors if you need them.”
Student 3: *from the back of the room* “OR MY AXE!”
(Everyone starts laughing.)
TA: “The only axes allowed on the exam are in the graph section.”
TA: “Oh, come on, you’re in a math class. Deal with the math jokes.”
(The professor enters with a stack of exams. With him are two exam proctors.)
Professor: “Tolkien jokes already, [TA's name]?”
TA: “Hey, I didn’t start it.”
(The professor starts handing stacks of exams to the TA and proctors.)
Professor: “But I’m about to finish it. [TA], take these exams down the left flank. [Proctor 1], follow the desks down the center. [Proctor 2], take your exams right, along the wall.”
(At this point, many of the students have realized where this is going: Theoden’s lines from ‘Return of the King.’)
Professor: “Forth, and fear no problems! Solve! Solve, students of calculus! Points shall be taken, scores shall be splintered! A pencil day! A red-ink day! Until three thirty!”
(The professor pulls out a pencil, holding it out like a sword, and runs down the first row holding it out. Students hold up their pencils, hitting his as he passes.)
Professor: “Solve now! Solve now! Solve to good grades and the class ending! MAAATH!”
Entire Class: “MAAATH!”
Entire Class: “MAAAAAATH!”
Professor: “Forth, exam-takers!”
(The entire class rises to their feet and gives him a standing ovation. A week later, we get an email from the professor.)
Professor: *at the end of the email* “PS: I appreciate all of you who wrote in their evaluations that I was the one professor to rule them all, but the best one yet was the student who called me ‘Mathrandir.’”

I WAS SO FRICKIN CLOSE TO THE HOBBIT DVD, BLURAY AND 3D BLURAY TODAY…. Then my friend bought the BLURAY and got a free middle earth map poster with it. Alas I don’t have anything that plays Bluray, but I’m still Hopi g a for a poster with the DVD.

A great actor, he will be hugely missed by all at the National Theatre.
I ship Bilbo and his Handkerchief…
The metal trees coalesce with the old, The silent shadows melt Into the ancient. The light breeze curls and turns amongst upturned moss, Whistling through the rust- ridden, steel branches. Amber lights once illuminated a long forgotten degradation, Of sheeted iron perched atop sun baked red brick and concrete. Whispers of the grass and leaves, echo the steam trains, Which have...

I seriously look forward to the coronation of the next British sovereign. Simply because when I see the Sovereign’s Orb, I’m just going to announce, ‘AND NOW THE HOLY HAND GRENADE SHALL BE GIVEN TO HIS MAJESTY… THIS SHALL PROTECT THYSELF FROMST THE DIREST OF HARMS, AND O LORD, BLESS THIS THINE HAND GRENADE THAT WITH IT THOU MAYEST BLOW THINE ENEMY TO BITS’
