(in a Renaissance Arts and Ideas class; a compilation of brilliant, original quotes just from today)

Intellectual: I'm just always thinking critically. I'm always analyzing. Nietzsche said that "the only true Christian died up on that cross." I'd like to meet Jesus just so I could disagree with him. Have you read Angels and Demons? It's by the same writer as The Da Vinci Code - you know, there was a movie about it but it was nowhere near as good as the book. Me, personally, I'm not an atheist - I'm an agnostic. I believe in a higher power, I'm not sure if it's God but I think there's something out there. I mean, that's why the Matrix was so controversial - because when Neo becomes the One, he essentially is becoming God. He sees the world in 1s and 0s because that's how the real world looks.

Annoying kid in physics bragging about his cooking skills:

Annoying kid: "Oh my God. I make the most amazing spicy garlic chicken. What you do is you take the chicken, cube it-"
Other guy: "How do you cube chicken?"
TA: "You multiply it by two other chickens. Shouldn't you guys be talking about the lab?"

and a little later...

TA (commenting on the clock, which was previously about an hour slow): "Looks like the clock's fixed. Are we in a relativistic reference frame on this side of the room?"
