What b-school Applications Do to People :-) [#permalink] New post 05 Mar 2008, 11:42
This is from the BW. After reading all the threads on BW about how school X is better than school Y for unbelievably lame reasons, I could certainly appreciate this thread. I couldn't resist to post the discussion here... it's so funny!

I think the gent is poking fun at all the stupid questions posted on b-school forums. Its like ppl dont have a brain of their own anymore.


What laptop should I buy
what shirt should i wear to class
should I go to pub night on thursdays.
I am JP. I am a robot. I have a robot vagina.

Finally, a BW thread that I truly enjoyed.

Memorable one :

If you are Indian and did not go to IIT, you should just use your hands.

I had a laughing fit after reading this one while my coworkers stared:

Is there an ethical problem if i pay someone else to take my BMs for me and then flush them? I mean, i dont really see the harm? I'm just levelling the playing field bec i am a small man and i cant compete in this competitive big BM environment.

I think there is some correlation between pooping and b-schools. There is no other way I can explain the lame "Pants pooping..." threads from last year.

that's a good one... here's my contribution:

"remember, all that analysis, numbers, stats, and comparisons mean NOTHING. The whole process is HOLISTIC and the best TP will emerge after all the criterias are evaluated thoroughly."

Yeah .. finally a fun BW thread. In addition to the ones you guys specified, I liked these too:

Quote:
I would choose based on "feel" and "fit"


Quote:
From what I understand people are pooping about 30% more this year than last year, so the suppliers may be inundated with large amounts of crap.


Quote:
What color is your poo though? It is much easier to get a roll if your poopie is green, yellow or magenta. Your skills aren;t that unusual for a brownie.

dakotus, I'm not sure I agree with your examples... I agree that the guy is poking fun of all the stupid questions, but I wouldn't consider asking which laptop to buy a stupid question. :)

and I consider the robot anatomy comment to be borderline in terms of etiquette on this board, but I'll let others (Praet) decide on that one.

The MOST deep, intense and satisfying laugh I've had this app season. My coworker actually came running over to my work station.

Just go throught the thread on BW. Crazy stuff!
