as a transfer - I don't even get to register until the 25th of august - not much time to track down books and start the reading...

if anyone caught "dog bites man" last night, it had a bit on doing the news with someone signing for the hearing impaired, and then finding out later they had form of tourette's which caused them sign vulgarities...then they went off on how they couldn't understand the complaint calls that came in...

I think you guys may be missing out on another factor that may influence ones sense of humor, and that is knowledge...

For the first 6 months that I lived in London, I found most of their humor painfully "unfunny". It wasn't until I understood the language, the culture, and particularly the current events better that I finally "got" it.

Or to use US comedy...many of Dennis Miller's punchlines involve references to authors or composers or directors...without a preexisting knowledge of those individuals or their work, the joke simply is not as funny. Or, think of the South Park episode where Tom Cruise refused to "come out of the closet." It is the knowledge of Tom Cruise, and the knowledge of what that phrase can mean in our culture, that made that premise funny to some...

thanks, but i've resigned myself to the fact that paying an extra few hundred dollars per month is worth it to attend UT (as I am transferring in from a T3 school).

Thanks guys - I was just down there apartment hunting in the heat - just about everything is rented out so it looks like I'll be paying much more than I expected just to get the last, close, clean apartment I could find...but at least there is a bus stop at the complex so hopefully parking won't be such an issue...
