I knew it was Pink Floyd!
Pink Floyd is an awesomeness sandwich
And The Wall is my all time favorite album.
We don't need no education...
I'm going to get some lunch...I'm putting this in my CD player now...It's in my head, and it is awesome

No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
Quizzes are out, but I think I forgot to change the time on it. They are due by 9 tomorrow
Awesome, I got my year correct, even tho I got one of my questions wrong!
I thought the famous "assault" was the Lorena Bobbit case. The incident happened in 1993, but she admitted guilt in 1994.
I couldn't figure out the song, though I had suspicions it was Brick in the Wall.
2 more quizzes left...you get them in, and maybe I can boot someone tonight
The Other's next victim is:
Poor, poor Squirrel. You played a good game, but karma bites you for purposely holding up the round
Congrats to the rest of you. You have advanced
Karma shmarma. I was tempted to not even turn in a quiz.
You would have left anyway
