Is there a thread for all the Hilarious things that the school photographers would say to coax smiles?

Sheesh, sounds like you had cool teachers.

Generally yeah! (One of them let me work on an independent study project during 10th grade English class for half the year -- on Tolkien, unsurpisingly -- while another did similar by saying, "I think you might like this book" and assigning it to me as a similar independent study project in 11th grade. Book in question: Gravity's Rainbow.)

I'm ruling out D&D/Magic: The Gathering because I think there's a girl in the background.

once a guy asked me if I played Magic in high school and after I said no, he replied, "Yeah, even the nerdiest girls aren't nerdy enough for Magic."

Or, I have just asked her to prom, and she's not even going to dignify that foolishness with a response.

High school scarred me.

I think that makes you the most desirable woman alive, bell_labs. xxxp

jessie monster, Monday, 7 January 2008 21:56 (6 years ago) Permalink

oh i am just going to give it away: i was at an anime club. wow embarrassing.

some kids tried to hook me into magic the gathering, but as a kid who NEVER had money, i just got their cast off cards, i think i only ever paid $2 total for my cards, and was whupped over and over until i quit one day and never looked back.

however i definitely played D&D! for WAAAAAYYYY too long (read: until i moved to montreal abt 2 years ago). but that is NOT embarrasssing becuase it was basically a bunch of great dudes hanging out and occasionally playing games but mostly making funny jokes.

MANY XXXXXXPOSTS it was not quiz bowl, they didn't havei t in Canada, BUT we had Reach For The Top which is the same tihng, i think, and I was on that team!!!!!

Academic Decathlon veterans unite. (We won the San Diego championship in my junior year.)

Laurel, you kinda remind me of Nona Mecklenberg (sp?) in that first pic.

i don't have any pics from highschool online, but there is one in a yearbook somewhere of me wearing a BLUR tshirt :o

Was it JUNIOR CLASSICAL LEAGUE

roxymuzak, Monday, 7 January 2008 22:01 (6 years ago) Permalink

Quiz Bowl is like "Jeopardy" except in a five-on-five match-up.

My step-father (who is a math teacher) complains that it doesn't get the press coverage that football gets.

He also believes that a out-of-the-park home run should be discounted as a foul since the ball has left the area of play.

xpost roxy we might have been!! except all you girls were cuter than me. the teenage years were awkward ones.

bell_labs, Monday, 7 January 2008 22:02 (6 years ago) Permalink

I did geography bowl and some scholars bowl. And BIBLE BOWL

xpost i didnt feel cuet

roxymuzak, Monday, 7 January 2008 22:02 (6 years ago) Permalink

None of us felt cuet, I for one was an outcast who never dated or kissed or flirted and read a lot of books to use up the time until I could leave my hometown.

Bell labs, on the other hand, at least gets to be a knock-out adult, which is what everyone who matters will remember, anyway.

Y7, 1992: I am sat on the right:

Y13, 1999: I am next door but one to the guy in the Sheffield Wednesday shirt on the second-to-back row.

xpost, I was on our school's Fifteen to One team, but I don't think anyone who might know what that means is still awake.

That earth science manual is somewhat reminiscent of the Music has The Right To Children cover.

LJ: I learnt photoshop (badly) when restoring that scan from a poster that had been torn in two

NV: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifteen_to_One

there was a school's edition which was lame, and all my team mates were idiots so we did really badly. Schools (i.e. team) version was 3 teams of 5.
