Oh, woe is me... the shocking state of university educations these days...
Besides CC...I wouldn't have recognized you shambling about the streets of Victoria if you'd had any more than six green hairs on your weathered old head, like Yoda. Like I said before, it's like looking in a mirror. We could be twins.
Besides...it makes you look wise and distinguished beyond your years.
At least that's always been my story...and I'm stickin to it.
I'd like to blame my misspelling of angst on my current illness but that's not as fun as making up abstract theories. First off, I think the X is much more mysterious and modern. Secondly, it goes well with OS X. Maybe I have OS X on the brain. . .
In any case, don't even get me started about low standards at universities. I have a friend who spells worse than an illiterate grade schooler and he graduated with distinction! Now he is working as a letter writer and spell-checker for a minister in Alberta. (I'm biting my tongue. . .)
Besides, it's not really my spelling that's poor; it's just that I'm a lazy spell-checker and re-reader.
I always thought that black was the baddest color. I have a 1971 SS454 musclecar and it is all black (and VERY shiny) and people would always come up to me and say something like "...MAN that is just the baddest lookin machine!"
I've had a bunch of other cool cars but this one is the only black one....and it's the only one that people comment on in that particular way.
Course...I've never had a purple musclecar.... yet.

I never really liked purple myself, but as I remember, traditionally purple is associated with royalty. Of course, maybe royalty and sexual ambiguity go together...
I think the badass colors are either black or red... hmmm, maybe black is badass and red is sexy...

However, perhaps this works because the whole pose of manliness is permeated with over-compensation and forceful repression of equivocal feelings.
I dig purple. Then again I'm writing a graduating essay on the disintegration of gender boundaries.
Ouch heavy! I mean, Macs rule!
I would like a Mac that is purple and black.
You are just subscribing to the more modern teletubbies interpretation on the useage of the colour. As mentioned, Purple has always been associated with royalty, at least on the british isles.
There are other badass colours mind you, black is definitly badass, but black doesn't work for a lightsabre.
Maybe if there was a shadowsabre, but there isn't. Red is pretty badass as well but there are two major drawbacks to red. One is that all of the sith use red lightsabres, and the other is that they tend to glow kind of pink which is a far more feminine colour if you ask me.
