The Michigan Daily - Weekend Magaz

Random student
can spell paradigm

0

By Johanna Hanink
Daily Arts Writer
The Michigan Daily: Hi, my name
is Johanna and I'm a reporter for The
Michigan Daily. You've been selected to
take part in the random student inter-
view Are you familiar with the feature?
It's in Weekend Magazine.
Random: You're kidding. Wait a sec-
ond, do you mind if I put you on speak-
er phone?
TMD: No that's fine.
R: OK.
TMD: How do you feel about the
recent breakup of Britney Spears and
'Nsync heartthrob Justin Timberlake?
R: I feel guilty. Justin was a great guy.
I didn't mean to confuse Britney. I'm not
really into her.
TMD: She broke up with him for
you?
R: That's one way of putting it.
TMD: Who would make a better pin-
up model: Arafat or Sharon?
R: I can't answer that.
TMD: Why not? Are you ashamed,
embarrassed?

R: They'd both make great pin-up
models, in my opinion.
TMD: Who is the Prime Minister of
Canada?
R: I'll have to get back to you on that
one.
TMD: On a scale of one to 10, how
much do you hate Canadians?
R: Considering I was there during the
U.S./Canada hockey game, I'd have to
say that Canadians are pretty ... Let's
just say I don't like them that much.
TMD: Do you think that Canadians
smell bad?
R: Do I think Canadians smell bad?
No.
TMD: I'm having a crisis. Can you
rationalize premarital sex for me?
R: If you're having a problem, then I
think it's not for you. I would have to
advise against it.
TMD: What is the most embarrass-
ing story you have from middle school?
R: I had a crush on a girl and I stole
her lunch and I tried to give it back to her
and I was like, "Oh, I found your lunch"
but the teacher found out and I got in
trouble.
TMD: This is from middle school?
How old were you?
R: I was about 18.
TMD: Spell paradigm.
R: P-A-R-A-I uh-uh-uh - no. Wait.
P-A-R-A-D-I-G-M.
TMD: That's correct.
R: Thomas Kuhn!
TMD: What?
R: Thomas Kuhn - "The Structure
of Scientific Revolutions." He's the guy
who coined the term.
TMD: Oh. Anyway. Do you think
you will be better understood by your
contemporaries or by future historians?
R: I don't think anyone is going to
ever understand me. No.
TMD: Stucchi's or Ben and Jerry's?
R: Local. Stucchi's.
TMD: Pine or Mulberry?
R: I like Outlook..
TMD: But, Pine is a Unix-based sys-
tem that allows the user the ultimate in
mobility and comfort.
R: It's pretty damn ugly but it does it's
job.
TMD: Do you have a dark underbel-
ly?
R: Are you telling or asking? I was
going to say you were wrong.
TMD: Do you know how to make the
upside down question mark in Microsoft
Word? Or as we like to call it, "el ques-
tion mark?"
R: You go to like insert symbol, then
you search. in that long list. So yeah, I
do.
TM: But what if you were held
hostage in a Cuban -
R: Oh wait a minute - I remember
the prime minister of Canada - it's like
Jean Chrtien or something. I can't spell
it.
TMD: Did you hear my last ques-
tion?
R: No.
TMD: But what if you were held
hostage in a Cuban prison?
R: I would tell them I have some
deadly transmittable disease and to get
me off the island or else everyone is.
