T.A.'s gone mad (and my cat's a poo head)

My cat's head smells like poo. She rubbed herself in something bad and I don't know what it is, but she really doesn't like it when I call her poo head. Not the point of this post, just something that I really wanted to share. She's insane and I love her for it, but giving me head butts when your head smells like poo is not ok.

So I had my first physics lab of the quarter today. Apparently I don't have the "look" of a physics major (although I am one of 2 majors actually in the lab.) He asked every table of all guys if they were physics majors (nope. I was actually at the same table as the one other physics major.)

He made some comment to the table of computer science people there about how they looked the part and then some bullshit about how physics and computer sci get the same makeup of er...(I can't remember the exact words) something to the effect of strange guys. He made an off hand comment about women not being in comp sci or physics (I can't remember what he said at the time, but I wanted to throw something at him). The comp sci guys called them on it and asked if he was making broad statements based on gender. He responded (I know, it's supposed to be funny) that he tries to be as "sexist and racist as possible." I loudly proclaimed that if he did that he might have heavy objects thrown at his head. Gee, I hope that doesn't affect my grade.

Gah. Looking forward to new labs, they seem lovely.

Oh and I added a counter. (As of two hours ago) Don't be scared, I'm just interested.
