Long gone repost

A repost, but fun as hell!

Here‘: a prime example of "Men
Are From Mara, Women he From
Venue." It is offered by an
English professor from the
University of Colorado as an
actual dill :
A Creative Writing professor told his
class one day: "Today we will
experiment with a new form called
the tandem story. The process is
simple. Each person will pair off with
the person sitting next to his or her
desk.
As homework tonight, one of you will
write the first paragraph of a short
story. You will femail your partner
that paragraph and send another
copy to me. The partner will read the
first paragraph and then add another
paragraph to the story and send it
back, also sending another copy to
me. The dirst person will then add a
third paragraph, and so on backhand-
forth.
Remember to rebread what has been
written each time In order to keep
the story coherent. There is to be
absolutely NO talking outside of the
and anything you wish to say
must be written in the femail. The
story is over when both agree is
conclusion has been readied."
The following was actually turned in
by two of his English students:
Rebeca (PINK)
Bill (BLUE).
THE STORY:
first paragraph by Rebeca)
At first Laurie couldn' t decide which
kind of tea she wanted. The
chamomile, which used to be her
favorite for lazy evenings at home,
now reminded her too much of Carl,
who once said, in happier times, that
he liked chamomile. But she felt she
must now, at all costs, keep her mind
on Cari. His possessiveness was
suffocating, and if she thought about
him too much her asthma started
acting up again. so chamomile was
out of the question.
second paragraph by Bill l
Meanwhile, Advance Sergeant can
Harris, leader of the attack squadron
now in orbit over Skylon 4, had more
Important things to think about than
the neuroses of an bareheaded
asthmatic bimbo named Laurie with
whom he had spent one sweaty mg
ht over a year ago, "AS. Harris to
Gasstation 17/ he said into his
communicator. " Polar
orbit established. No sign of
resistance so far..." But before he

could sign off a bluish particle beam
flashed out of nowhere and blasted a
hole through his ship' s cargo bay. The
jolt from the direct hit sent flying
out of his seat and across the
cockpit.
Rebeca)
He bumped his head and died almost
Immediately, but not before he felt
one last pang of regret for psychically
brutalizing the one woman who had
ever had feelings for him. Soon
afterwards, Earth stopped its
pointless
hostilities towards the peaceful
farmers of Skylon 4. "Congress
Passes Law Permanently Abolishing
war and Space Travel," Laurie read in
her newspaper one morning. The
news simultaneously excited her and
bored her. She stared out the window,
dreaming of her youth, when the
days had passed umhum' edly and
carefree, with no newspaper to read,
no television to distract her from
her sense of innocent wonder at all
the beautiful things around her. "Why
must one lose one' s innocence to
become a woman?" she pondered
wistfully.
t Bill l
Attle did she know, but she had less
than 10 seconds to live. Thousands of
miles above the city, the Anu' Adrian

mothership launched the farst of its
lithium fusion missiles. The dimwitted
wimpy percent's who pushed the
Unilateral Aerospace disarmament
Treaty through the Congress had ler t
Earth a defenseless target for the
hostile alien empires who were
determined to
destroy the human race. Within two
hours after the passage of the treaty
the Anu' uratan ships were on course
for Earth, carrying enough firepower
to pulverize the entire planet. With no
one to stop them, they swiftly
initiated their diabolical plan. The
lithium fusion missile entered the
atmosphere unimpeded. The
President, in his mobile
submarine headquarters on the ocean
floor off the coast of Guam ' felt the
massive explosion,
which vaporized even poor, stupid
Laurie.

This is absurd. I refuse to continue
this mockery of literature. My writing
partner is a violent, chauvinistic
adolescent.
t our l
Yeah? Well, my writing partner is a
tedious neurotic whose
attempts at writing are the literary
equivalent of Valium. " Oh, shall I
have chamomile tea? or shall I have
toturing ( veze runny)
some other sort of FAKING TEA???
Oh no,
what am I to do? I' m such an air
headed bimbo. I guess I' read too
many Danielle Steele novels!"

As I read through the girl's paragraphs, my jaw would clench in utter disgust and my mind would be flooded by the overwhelming desire to walk out of my house and punch the first teenage girl wearing skimpy clothes, preferably with a faggot for a boyfriend. The ignorance performed by this paradigm of abomination is simply astounding.

Seriously? 'They put a ban on war and spacetravel'? Well, good luck with that, putting a ban on war. Also, spacetravel would probably be what kept all the planets alive. Because some would be agricultural and some would be industrial, etc. But no, let's starve whole plantes, while some other will probably fall back to the middle ages! Why the 						****					 not!   
   
Sorry about that, but that's just... is that girl even tied to realism?

I want to know more about the Anu'udrians. What kind of culture would be able to survive the years of reform they must have gone through while advancing to such a technological level. Were they a peaceful people, but just recently usurped by a dictator due to economic strife, like Hitler? Were they always like this? Are they even human? Them being of a different species would explain how such a violent and outwardly aggressive culture would survive for so long, but if they are, what is that species like? Do they have a central nervous system?

And who is Laurie? Maybe she was an alien in the guise of a human who forgot her past self somehow, but still held her old species' innate abilities? Maybe that's why she likes chamomile tea.

Sexist? I think it shows both genders can be assholes.
Dude could have just went with the girl's story; chick could have played along with the guy's story.

But nope. They're both assholes.

Could Bill's text have been as boring and stupid to women as Rebecca's text to men?

Because I think Rebecca is simply a terrible writer rather than a feminine one.
