But they'll put up with pathetic wastes of human potential such as yourself. Sounds like Tennessee should be paved over to make extra parking for the states that border it.

Apparently the University of Tennessee faculty is kept stupid by the dumbass Tennessee legislature
.
The internet-smart students are having to teach the faculty (instead of the other way around)

Coffee is a communist plot. It's a well-known FACT that famous communists, such as The Obamaniac, Uncle Joe Stalin, Lenin & Mao ALL drank coffee.

PURE EVIL.

Well you are right on both counts. But they can't help it, they were born that way, or so they claim. LOL

I'm glad I left TN. Minneapolis is a lot more LGBT friendly. I'm an openly transgender mtf seal trained veteran. I want to go back to promote some hardcore LGBT activism. Love y'all ;-)
