All I want is a room somewhere

Tales from the New Testament

1. Discussing the difference between prophesy and prediction:

Teacher: I predict global warming will continue.

Student: I predict Al Gore is a stupid idiot who doesn't know anything.

Teacher (dying a little inside but with a smile): That is neither a prophesy nor a prediction.

2. Trying to bring another discussion to a deeper level:

Teacher: Why do you think I'm pressing you to give me more specific answers?

Student 1: Because you like to hear our voices?

Teacher (sweetly): Actually, no, not as much as you'd think.

Student 2: Well...umm...long pause...umm.......


Teacher: My thoughts exactly.
