Random question... I'm having a baby (due May 23), and my baby shower is on April 5. For the thank-you notes, I was thinking it'd be cute to send each person a picture of the baby using whatever they bought as a gift, but do you think two months is too long to wait to send out thank-you notes? (I'd write them ahead of time and just take the photos after the baby is born.)

So they find a way to clone dinosaurs off amber-encased DNA, hypothetically. New technology, and there's a lot of dinosaurs they can clone. This mass cloning becomes so mundane that businesses form around them. Which of these dinosaur-related businesses would you patronize?

Raptor petting zoo (these are the ones covered in feathers, not the Spielberg raptors). You can feed them meats

Brontasaurus rides
38(22.9%)
Triceratop ribs (just like the Flintstones!)
17(10.2%)
Raptor hunting range

Dinosaur zoo (just like Jurassic Park)
33(19.9%)
T-Rex leather boots

Dinosaur omelettes (out of their enormous eggs)

Pygmy diplodocus (they grow as big as a dog)

Let's say Bigfoot was captured. Holy cow, he's real! What would you like to see happen to him?

Studied exclusively for science

Put on display, like a travelling zoo, going city to city

Same as above, except they mount a camera on him, so we can study his habits

Hypothetical. You're in the woods, camping (sure, why not?). As you're gathering firewood, alone, you hear a stick crack under foot. You turn to the sound, and see a 7' tall humanoid. It's large and muscular and bipedial, covering in brownish hair, shambling along. Its arms seem to be of average human length, stopping around the crotch-level, and swing side to side when walking, much more human than ape. It doesn't notice you as it continues its way to its cryptozoological destination. What is it you think you saw?

SASQUATCH!

It...must have been a bear. It's the woods. It was an unusual kind of bear

Orangutan, but what is one of them doing in the woods?

Hallucination. What was in that moonshine?

Okay, guys. Let's say that at work, in the bathroom, one of the light bulbs isn't working, so that the lights are very dim. When you go to the bathroom, it's pretty dark. Then the light is fixed, and you notice that somebody peed all over the toilet seat. You know that you've sat on it once since then, because when you look back, you realize that you noticed *something* on the toilet seat, but it didn't register in your brain at the time. But you know the pee was dry, at least, because you didn't feel anything.

When you get home, do you...

TQC, I know I ask you guys for help with school-related things a lot, but I am serious need of your help.

What's a nice, non-tattle-tale way to write to the head of the department about how lacklustre and irresponsible a certain professor has been?

There are two weeks of class left and we haven't received any grades; he still hasn't gotten around to marking our essays that we handed in seven weeks ago. We have a final paper worth 50% of our grade due in two weeks, but he wasn't in class today and hasn't communicated anything about the paper with us. This class meets once a week, so if he explains it in class next week, that will give us one week to write this paper (we have no idea how long it's supposed to be).

He did explain to us that he has some ongoing medical issues, which I am very sympathetic towards, but at the same time, I feel like some kind of accommodations should have been made if he can't complete his work in a reasonable amount of time. I don't want to whine, but it's not fair to leave us in the dark about our grades and assignments.

Basically, I don't think he's all that into teaching or grading or anything, and I'm worried about that. I don't know exactly how to express what I'm worried about, but this status of this class has me feeling uneasy. Any tips? Suggestions? Ideas?

Edit: Since it has come up a couple times, yes, I have tried to communicate with him to no avail (obviously, there are two weeks of class left and he still hasn't done anything for the class).
