Suddenly... decapitated!

zengeneral: Oh! Oh! We need to throw a wake. My Mormon friend's getting married this month.
masaga: He's getting married in college?
banazir: Grats to him!
zengeneral: Grats what? Nuts! He used to be ahead of me. Then he did his mission years. Now, I pity him - we go over Diff Eq's together, I say "look! easy... I did that years ago..."
banazir: Well, you know, that tends to happen with mission years, from what I hear. So does getting married in college, for some of the LDS folks. Especially in Utah.
zengeneral: Oh, in Utah they don't really go to college. They say `okaly-dokaly, let's have babies'.


    -The Zeroth House of KDD, 03:30 CST, 12 Dec 2004


Yes, masaga and zengeneral came over last night after zengeneral's graduation ceremony, and there was much rejoicing and sharing of giant cookie, CHOKLIT ice cream, and CHOKLIT sauce. From midnight to 03:00. Then we adjourned to my office downstairs and started to chat... about things that shall remain SIKRIT until the time is right. Except the above. And my M.S. hood with blade insert. Advisor's prerogative - it's like prima nocte, don't worry yourselves about it. Suddenly... decapitated...

I am very impressed, and a teeny tad bit unnerved, that zengeneral has already developed a "shoveling bodies into the maw of Hell with glee" expression and gesture.

Anyhow, the sugar and caffeine-enhanced teunceing continued until 04:20, when the kids suddenly decided they needed to sleep. I went back to work until a little after 05:00. And that's how it's done, people!

zengeneral: Oh! Oh! We need to throw a wake. My Mormon friend's getting married this month.

A wake cause they're getting married?? LOLOL. That's so great.

masaga: He's getting married in college?

A way too common occurrence in Utah/LDS culture. In fact, if you're not married when you graduate some people think there's something wrong. There's a joke that circulates among the students at BYU regarding freshman: "Ring by spring or your money back." ;)

zengeneral: Grats what? Nuts! He used to be ahead of me. Then he did his mission years. Now, I pity him - we go over Diff Eq's together, I say "look! easy... I did that years ago..."

Hahaha. Yes, I'm a senior in school while all the guys I know who went on missions and just coming back are barely sophomores. It's great.

banazir: Well, you know, that tends to happen with mission years, from what I hear. So does getting married in college, for some of the LDS folks. Especially in Utah.

*choke* Utah is a culture all its own.

zengeneral: Oh, in Utah they don't really go to college. They say `okaly-dokaly, let's have babies'.

ROFLOL. They come to college to find their spouse and have babies. It's like bunnies. Most people don't come come to BYU (or any school in Utah, really), to actually go to school. They come to find their eternal companion. Course, it would be nice if I found mine while here but seriously... the marriage rate here isn't as nearly as high as people make it out to be. There's like a 50% unmarried rate who graduate here so it's not as bad as even I make it sound. ;)

Okay I should at least go get chocolate....

(Yes, people, that is a Star Control II ref in the title.)

lol, yeah, you have to understand, that's vintage zengeneral... :-D

Oh, yeah, we know. zengeneral's buddy is a young groom by, er, muggle standards, but yeah... I'm sure he'd be "marrying late" over there. :-P

There's a joke that circulates among the students at BYU regarding freshman: "Ring by spring or your money back." ;)
LOL, yeah, I think you mentioned that once.
"Okaly, dokaly..."
(What is up with that, Jeff? Everyone knows Flanders is a Baptist... members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints say... uhh, what do they say?)

Hahaha. Yes, I'm a senior in school while all the guys I know who went on missions and just coming back are barely sophomores. It's great.
Yay!
How many more years do you have to take yours, if you do?

I am actually surprised how many people here in KS are going on missions. Not all faith-based; some are Peace Corps - but I'll be in the department, or the Computer Center, and people will just start talking about how they are signing up for, or considering, a two-year stint.

banazir: Well, you know, that tends to happen with mission years, from what I hear. So does getting married in college, for some of the LDS folks. Especially in Utah.
*choke* Utah is a culture all its own.
I'm sure! You mind if I subscribe to utahculture? I'll be quiet and respectful, I promise... and no anthropology papers unless requested... O:-)

LOL, now I have this image of Provo as this Watership Down scene...

There's like a 50% unmarried rate who graduate here so it's not as bad as even I make it sound. ;)
LOL!
50%... I wonder what the a priori rate nationwide is... or the rate in Kansas.
I have some pretty young married students, come to think of it: in my group, Ben married Jessica, and Julie married Charlie in their undergrad days. Sterling too. And Laura K. H. and Steve G. married within a year of graduation.

masaga, if you fear for the future of humanity while the House of KDD stands... just wait'll they start spawning.

What do we say for what?

How many more years do you have to take yours, if you do?

Um, I think girls can take them up to like...25? I think 25 or 26 is the cutoff age for guys 99% of the time. For girls I think it's probably around the same. Possibly higher cause girls can't go til two years later than guys can.

I am actually surprised how many people here in KS are going on missions. Not all faith-based; some are Peace Corps - but I'll be in the department, or the Computer Center, and people will just start talking about how they are signing up for, or considering, a two-year stint.

*nods* I think it'd be cool to do something like that... as long as I could be online as long as I wanted. ;) (I wonder if they have internet missions! j/k. totally kidding.)

I'm sure! You mind if I subscribe to [info]utahculture? I'll be quiet and respectful, I promise... and no anthropology papers unless requested... O:-)

LOL I don't mind at all. In fact I was going to mention it in my earlier reply and forgot to.

LOL, now I have this image of Provo as this Watership Down scene...

That was kinda the goal. ;) Just imagine student apartments as bunny hutches and you're good to come visit.

I have some pretty young married students, come to think of it: in my group, Ben married Jessica, and Julie married Charlie in their undergrad days. Sterling too. And Laura K. H. and Steve G. married within a year of graduation.

There's a larger divorce rate in Utah too, it keeps climbing. I think it's cause people actually do get married too young here cause there is so much pressure to do so. Utah's pretty jacked up. The whole dating scene here is...well...messed up. People get married too young, and usually way too fast without knowing each other.

Aww... won't be that long. Two more semesters?

Like, three. Along with one class each in two summertime terms. Blargh. Unless I take a crapful of independent study, and then I can graduate in a year. Only thing is, for me IS is twice as expensive to take...but also I think twice as convenient (if not 3 times) and probably twice as easy as regular classes. I'm just not sure if I have the money.

Hehe! I'll find out.
(banazir vs. LDSmatch! Bwaha!)

"Okaly, dokaly..."
(What is up with that, Jeff? Everyone knows Flanders is a Baptist... members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints say... uhh, what do they say?)

What do we say for what?
As a general expression of friendly acquiescence - like Ned Flanders' "okaly-dokaly, neighbor!" on The Simpsons (don't know whether you've watched enough to see that).

Um, I think girls can take them up to like...25? [...] Possibly higher cause girls can't go til two years later than guys can.
Plenty of time for you to fall behind in math, then... and if you get married, too, well, then okaly dokaly... :-D

*ducking*

*nods* I think it'd be cool to do something like that... as long as I could be online as long as I wanted. ;) (I wonder if they have internet missions! j/k. totally kidding.)

I would be seriously wary of "Internet missions". :-P

Hrm, I was going to say, that's the downside of selecting an eternal companion on short notice, no?

Not bad. Do something interesting!
Since you aren't planning on graduate school, take the opportunity to take intriguing coursework you otherwise don't think you will be readin gon your own. (Assuming you have some free electives in your future.)

Blargh. Unless I take a crapful of independent study, and then I can graduate in a year.
A "crapful". I think I will use that unit with my honors students and mentoring advisees... ;-)

Only thing is, for me [it] is twice as expensive to take...but also I think twice as convenient (if not 3 times) and probably twice as easy as regular classes. I'm just not sure if I have the money.
Hrm... you need to sell a Watership Down-like script to UPN or Mutant Enemy. I won't mention that it's allegorical if you don't. ;-)

LOL!!! I know it does, that's what everyone says. But...it's true. Especially when I occasionally see these student moms struggling to get the big strollers into these tiny classrooms that are already chock full of desks.

People get married too young, and usually way too fast without knowing each other.
Hrm, I was going to say, that's the downside of selecting an eternal companion on short notice, no?


Yup. Thing is most people don't even realize it. I mean, we don't want to put off marriage too long (we being LDS) but really, come on people. You gotta know each other. You're gonna have forever with this person, so you can wait a few more weeks/months to be sure you like them.

Like, three. Along with one class each in two summertime terms.

Oh yeah, I want to, just... like I want to take beginning sewing if I can (for future costuming purposes) and if they still are offering it when I have room and time to take it, they sometimes teach an SF section of a creative writing class. I do like to learn, I just...hate how school is set up.

A "crapful". I think I will use that unit with my honors students and mentoring advisees... ;-)

LOL. A crapful is near to a bucketload of crap, fyi.

Hrm... you need to sell a Watership Down-like script to UPN or Mutant Enemy. I won't mention that it's allegorical if you don't. ;-)

:-P Actually, if it gets me a job on Star Trek, with Joss Whedon (or with J.J. Abrams), I'll do it.

Auuuugh! Mormon brainwashing! (j/k :-D)

*snicker* Hey, if you don't want the missionaries coming to your home, well... how's a chat sound?
ROFLOL. Did I ever tell you about the time I met these three LDS missionaries in the elevator of the University of Illinois Beckman Institute? I told them I'd be happy to look at any literature they recommended as time permitted but that they probably didn't want to come to my home, cluttered as it was (truth).

Afterwards, though...
My friend Yair: Ahh! banazir, the next time you meet missionaries - Jewish, Mormon, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, anything at all: send them to me.
me: You'll... tell them you don't believe in God?
Yair: I'll tell them I do! And they should believe in me, too!

Good old Yair. You don't meet all that many autotheists, any more.

LOL!!! I know it does, that's what everyone says. But...it's true. Especially when I occasionally see these student moms struggling to get the big strollers into these tiny classrooms that are already chock full of desks.
I swear, those freshmen are getting younger every year...
(Hey, as long as the babies aren't getting their "ring by spring"? Works for me.)

Yup. Thing is most people don't even realize it. I mean, we don't want to put off marriage too long (we being LDS) but really, come on people. You gotta know each other. You're gonna have forever with this person, so you can wait a few more weeks/months to be sure you like them.
Weeks and months? Oh, by all means! Take multiple months! Take a year, even! (Just don't take... like, ten, they way people in Asian countries sometimes do. That's how you get those 35 or 40-year old Japanese couples who have been dating for a decade and end up with fertility problems. Hrm, and there's a good missionary venue for the people who run the bunny hutchmissions...)

Oh yeah, I want to, just... like I want to take beginning sewing if I can (for future costuming purposes) and if they still are offering it when I have room and time to take it, they sometimes teach an SF section of a creative writing class.
Very cool.

Psst... lille SIKRIT: you're not alone...

LOL. A crapful is near to a bucketload of crap, fyi.
I see. Is that the "avoirdupoo" system of measurement? ;-)

:-P Actually, if it gets me a job on Star Trek, with Joss Whedon (or with J.J. Abrams), I'll do it.
LOL! I can see it now. Serenity Director's Cut showing Mal et al. touching down on Alma, an LDS enclave where the population is 57 billion...
MAL: How did you people avoid drawing Alliance attention?
PLANETARY LEADER: "Avoid"? What do you mean, avoid?
JAYNE AND MAL spot a large box of suspicious-looking blue leather gloves on the shelf of the LEADER. They swallow hard.

Oh my gosh... first day of school last semester, I'm suddenly a senior, and though I'm not THAT tall, everyone suddenly seemed SHORTER and way young!!! I was like, when did I become old????

*chuckle* Yup. I included "weeks" in there with my mention of waiting months cause, people around here think that it's crazy to wait that long. I guess once you know you wanna marry them, you wanna marry them, so... might as well do it. ;)

In all honestly I think part of it in Utah culture has spawned from the fact that mormons aren't really supposed to do anything more than kiss (making out is kind of... well a grey area, I guess) before marriage, so they figure it's wise to have a shorter engagement to cut down on the possibility of going further than they should in regards to physical intimacy. But, some people have long engagements and I know they're fine, so... *shrug*

....I really don't know why I keep commenting on all of this when I haven't even been in a relationship, it's not like I should really be talking, LOL.

Seriously!
In Asia they date for an unhealthily longish time (3-10 years, to hear tell from yodge), and there are social stigmata associated with going further than kissing. OTOH, I wouldn't say that's actually better than instamarriage. Relationships should just progress at their own pace, IMHO.

Instamarriage! Just take one hormonally charged 21yo RM who only thinks he's an octopus, and mix in a naive 19yo girl who's still waiting for her original bf to get home from his mission. Stir in a few ward socials, FHE activities, and Ward Prayers, and when it's done, throw in an engagement ring.

"I read that as" - in re: making out with grey matter.
Diamond Mask marries a fellow known as Jack the Bodiless, so nicknamed because his natural form is a floating disembodied brain.
(But not a discustarding kind. A nice brain. No, really!
It's a good series. :-))

Wow. The social stigma whatever, yeah, that kinda relates to here.
:nod: What I'm saying, though, is that there can be moratoria on premarital sex - religious or cultural - and as long as there isn't a commensurate "be fruitful and multiply" directive, there isn't necessarily any pressure to procreate early.

Yeah, I agree, but, now you gave me a new idea.

Re: Octopi : Banazir :: Droids : Miajesbar
Ooo, where? That sounds like fun.

It was just a couple chapters in a much larger Obi/Siri fic. Let me fetch the link. http://boards.theforce.net/The_Saga/b10476/15408818/p2

About halfway down starts the post with Obi-Wan's adventures with the cleaning bot. LOL the entire story's pretty funny though. I got sucked into reading the entire thing.

Woah. Like, hardcore, dude.
(Sheesh, and I'm gonna introduce you to one of William's little brothers?! zengeneral would have absolutely no problem with his robot army takeover then...)


LOL! Nope. Erm, I mean, yeah he will. Erm, um, dang it! My cover is blown!

And don't make me get into all the reasons of why real males are better than droids...

"I read that as" - in re: making out with grey matter.

roflol!

NooooOOOOOooooo

Don't ever mention octopi in my LJ, not even in jest!
You'll call down the squeeing platonic fangirls!


Dear, I AM one of the squeeing platonic fangirls!

Do you want them to find you? They are terrible!

No, but I wouldn't mind Aragorn finding me... If you see him, give him my number.

I'm actually not sure how the octopus figures in, but really, I don't need to know. No, really! *backs away and prepares to bolt*

Well, see, it's like this... *gets distracted by chocolate so you never know the answer*

Hey, that's cool - thanks!

Hey, lissen, missy, some of us take that as a given!
*indignant head toss*

Eeeeeee!
(I wonder what the eigenvalue of a squee is. Could harness the resonance...)

No, but I wouldn't mind Aragorn finding me...

LOL, will do... waitaminit! Even movie-Aragorn (SY 1418-19) is in his late eighties! I mean even for a Dunadan of the line of Elros, that's well into one's 30-40s, yes? Ewwwwwwllll!

Well, see, it's like this... *gets distracted by chocolate so you never know the answer*
LOL!
*tosses CHOKLIT foff bombs and beats a hasty exit*

Yes, you poor, poor souls.
Poor? Cause we know we're better than droids?
Why poor?

Were you...trying to imitate burkhardt here or something?
LOL, heck no!
That would be *flaunt flaunt*
"Flowing locks" and "hair of a pony" I don't have...

Why poor?


Cause you take so many things about yourselves as a given. And not even all males are better than droids. ;)

Hmph! Do not!!

OK, fine - I will go out on a limb and claim to be better than a droid. Well, I'm not as good a killer as zengeneral's robots will be, but that has not yet come to pass.

"Flowing locks" and "hair of a pony" I don't have...
LOL!
I note that burkhardt is unusually quiet.
Either he is lurking and awaiting his moment of deadly opportunity or he has not yet been alerted to the subjec matter of this thread...
