    This ISU Student Is a Moron

    I've seen this posted a couple times on twitter and facebook today. Really hope this kid is trying to be satirical and just failed miserably...

    Alexander Maxwell is a senior in computer engineering from Monterey, California.

    There's your problems right there.

    1. CprE major. Probably wrote this at 4:45am, with a 6am deadline because they procrastinate and hate writing.
    2. From California. Probably thinks he is better than Iowans at most things, including satire.

    The fact that you could read that and think it was serious worries me.

    Not being able to control the weather is not a valid excuse. In fact, the lack of such an ability shows that the meteorology department is woefully underfunded.
    One potential solution is to construct a giant glass dome covering all of campus

    It's one thing to be satirical, and another just to be stupid. Obviously he wasn't being serious, but if you're going to try to be funny, at least try to be more clever than this.

    It sure pisses me off when amateur journalists writing for a student newspaper aren't as funny as I want them to be, too.

    Re: This ISU Student Is a Moron

    Picked up the sarcastic tone right away... "Not being able to control the weather is not a valid excuse. In fact, the lack of such an ability shows that the meteorology department is woefully underfunded."

    No amount of money will ever change that! Either way, I didn't read it all... didn't find it funny/entertaining.

    Left me wondering why someone would even bother with it.

    So you are saying that comp people from Cali are not funny? That should be a given.
