I knew it!
As we sat through SCI-204 (Environmental Science) today we naturally came back to the whole birthrate/deathrate thing, and how they related to closed systems. To illustrate his point about attempting to control our envionment and how such actions impact the global population level the professor asked the class for suggestions to write on the board for causes of death. The usual culprits were shouted out such as "Disease," "War," "Suicide," "Famine" and everyone's favorite "Old Age." There was a long pause, then a sour voice said from the middle of the classroom, "Reality TV." The instructor didn't miss a beat, it went up on the board right after "war."

Certain truths can still be found in higher learning, it would seem.

I just have to ask. Was the sour voice yours?

That and a dollar will get me a cup of coffee, as long as I don't forget the dollar.
