    Don't forget about two other ISU economics grads that went on to international leadership: John Garang, former VP of Sudan and leader of the PLA (who tragically died a few years back early in his vice presidency), and Lee Teng-hui, who was a long-time president of Taiwan.

    See folks, that's what a degree from Iowa State can get you.


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    Also started the Sudan/Darfur conflict/civil war. Now you've all learned two things today.

    Re: fun fact about our alma mater

    Awesome! We have a guy who started one of the bloodiest conflicts of the new millenium, a guy who may be involved in some major election fraud, AND our university helped enrich uranium for the atomic bomb? I didn't realize ISU stood for International Strife University. I'm a little worried that I'm going to turn 30 and suddenly decide to invade Canada.

    Wait, so the guy in your sig NEVER made it to the other side? He tried like 30 times, showed some potential, looked like he was close, and then just quit. Was he Gene Chizik?

    Re: fun fact about our alma mater

    Dr. Olivia Muchena did Anthropology PhD work at ISU. She is fairly senior in Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe regime, and was part of the whole land reform issue there (forceably removing large, primarily white farmers, under the idea of giving the land back to indigenous folks, but with large questions on how some ended up with land)

    Why do you think we get kicked in the balls so much? Karma's a *****.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.
