Things I learned in Student Congress

Five hours of student congress. Seven hours of acting as extemp Nazi. Man oh man, Nat Quals is a marathon...

I learned the following:

On the overbearing prevalence of advertising:
"Chocolate releases endorsements in the brain."

On a word that I need in my vocabulary:

"Foreignly." comment:
"Sex education shoves beliefs down students' throats."

On something more necessary than Columbus Day:

"Why doesn't Lincoln have a holiday? Isn't he more important?"

On holidays, part II:

"Thanksgiving: we celebrate the wholesale slaughter of Native Americans."

My brain hurts.

(Inspired by Jim's litany of Student Congress blunders.)
