    What are some of you guys writing for Pitt's second prompt (how do you contribute to our diverse student body)?

    My high school graduating class (in my town's only high school) was 7 students. In other words, I'm emphasizing my rural background.

    I watched Lady in the Water yesterday, and I didn't hate it.

    Wow. What would be even more remarkable would be finding someone who didn't hate "Gigli."

    I've always wanted to watch that just to see what all the (negative) buzz was about. If nothing else, it would probably be great to make fun of, like any Chuck Norris or Jean-Claude Van Damme movie.

    Edit: Blood Sport may be the one exception. I like that one.

    Well a lot of these posts fall into one of the same categories:

    a. Someone write my PS/Secondary for me or help me edit it!
    b. I can't figure out how to use AMCAS/I have a weird AMCAS situation
    c. I want to debate some hypothetical issue but don't want to go to the Dr's lounge
    d. What are my chances? (I can't even find the WAMC thread!)

    Because 3/4 of the threads are beyond stupid. Take this one for example: this idiot wants a bunch of strangers to tell him why he is unique.

    To Whom it May Concern,

    My name is MILF and I just want to take the time to tell you how well qualified narc is to become a physician. I must first start out by saying that it has been a long time since I have done the do, and when I did the do with my husband it only lasted for 6 minutes. Narc lasted for 7 whole minutes. Since he has stamina he would make a great surgeon. I'm mean 7 WHOLE MINUTES...that lasts longer than most surgeries, right?

    I will continue to update your committee on his progress. He has a fine future ahead of him. Maybe next time I will be able to report 8 WHOLE MINUTES.

    With much validity,

    :love: MILF :love:

    ? While I do find some of the posts in this thread mildly amusing, I was addressing the comment that I quoted in my original post as well as the OP - and nothing else.

    If you want a truly terrible movie, I think The Octagon (starring Chuck Norris) takes the cake. I've seen Delta Force 3, and The Octagon runs polygons around it.

    There's plenty of room for us country folk. In fact, they could use more of us.

    Ditto: english, Pittsburghese, baby-talk and enough chinese to know when I'm being called a dumb American by my husband.

    I have this fear I am going to talk to my interviewers like they're two year olds since that's how I talk all day long. "Aaaaall done. Do you want to be All Done with the interview? Bye bye, say bye bye. Bye bye, see you! Bye bye door! Bye bye!"

    A serious reply: I talked about my rural background, growing up in poverty (so freaking degrading having to write this $hit) and my status as a non-trad mom to a special needs son.
     
  40. I thought that was from The Legend of Ron Burgandy. Did I miss something? But, for the record, it sucks that Mitch Hedberg died. :(

    Dr. Acula's screen name is the Mitch Hedberg reference I was lauding. And yeah, it definitely sucks that he died...he had so much comedy left in him. I was fortunate enough to see him perform twice before he died, though.

    Hm... I guess I haven't seen Scrubs enough to know. I know Mitch Hedberg has a Dr. Acula joke, so I guess it could be either if it's also in Scrubs.

    The main character in Scrubs is writing a screenplay called Dr. Acula.

    Scrubs is hilarious btw, you should check it out.

    To those wondering, i chose Dr. Acula mainly because of Scrubs, Mitch was secondary.

    P.S. — This is what part of the alphabet would look like if Q and R were eliminated. :laugh:

    That's a bit of a ridiculous comment, don't you think? You have to remember that not everyone sits on SDN 100 hours a week like some people. Just because you haven't been around here long enough to read some of this stuff doesn't mean you are an idiot. It's not all that unreasonable of a question, and you can ask a question like that whenever you want. If it's so idiotic, why did you bother to read it?? This question is nowhere near "beyond stupid" compared to some questions, and maybe the op just want's to get an idea about what people write about. Who is more of the idiot the person who posts the question or the people who respond?
