what the hell is that the formula for?
2001-12-27 03:11:26 PM  
You've got to be kidding me. With all of the shiat that's going on in the world right now, THIS is what they're occupied with as important?

dude! my town is on fark!

2001-12-27 03:16:51 PM  
Dude, your town has some weird ass people in it.
2001-12-27 03:17:03 PM  
I dont get it. What the fark is the Chancellor ranting about?
2001-12-27 03:18:54 PM  
Wow. What a huge waste of time.
2001-12-27 03:20:45 PM  
Let's ban AFK, ROFL, and LOL, too, since we all know acronyms are the devil's work.
2001-12-27 03:21:32 PM  

hey domo kun fans...anyone remember an old (early 80's) japanese live action tv show w/ two guys dressed like the marx bros & a talking piece of poo named "unchi?" what the hell was that?
2001-12-27 03:22:14 PM  
That chancellor has obviously not taken a chemistry class - at least not in the last 100 years.

We didn't know it had an abbreviation. We always called it "UNC-Chapel Hill."
2001-12-27 03:22:43 PM  
'Sup Wak? I'm right next door in Carrboro.
2001-12-27 03:23:16 PM  
I don't get it, someone explain please?
2001-12-27 03:27:44 PM  
ok, so whats wrong with the abbreviation? what exactly does it sound like?
2001-12-27 03:30:41 PM  
I'm a goddamn teenage boy and I don't even find that obscene-sounding...
2001-12-27 03:31:03 PM  
unc-ch = unchi = poo!

Well since U is the symbol for Uranium, UNC-CH would be radioactive.
It doesn't really sound like a viable chemical formula for anything.
2001-12-27 03:35:44 PM  
Whoever submitted this article: Eat my ass and quit wasting my time. WTF does uncch mean? UNC2H? Uranium-Nitrite-Di-Carbon-Hydride?
2001-12-27 03:36:15 PM  
Since their basketball and football teams suck rocks right now, I guess this is the only way UNC-CH can get some press.
2001-12-27 03:36:21 PM  
I'm guessing this Chancellor is either a)short, b)bald, c)under-endowed, d) some combination of the above.
2001-12-27 03:36:43 PM  
I think they mean "eunuch" you know those fairies with no testicles, uh... like Fb
2001-12-27 03:36:47 PM  
This probably isn't worth discussion,
seeing as how our esteemed Chancellor
was probably drunk as a fiddler's biatch
at the time.
2001-12-27 03:37:51 PM  
They should change it to UNC-Duke Sucks
2001-12-27 03:41:59 PM  
looks like the Chancellor at Moorehead State has some serious homework to do, then
2001-12-27 03:42:10 PM  
I'm gonna see if it even works Electomagnetically..

in that wonderful linear configuration

North Carolina farkers unite!
2001-12-27 03:43:38 PM  
Sheesh! At least they're not Sam Houston Institute of Technology or Farmer's University of Central Kentucky. And then there's good old Beaver College...
2001-12-27 03:44:45 PM  
I don't see Stone Hill Institute of Technology changing its abbreviation...

2001-12-27 03:47:12 PM  
This is the kind of asinine stuff that bored, ineffective middle managers do to try and make themselves seem important. Like my boss.
2001-12-27 03:50:18 PM  
that chancellor obviously sniffed the benzene way too long in chem lab, methinks
2001-12-27 03:50:53 PM  
there are some weird folks in Chapel Hill. It's just a weird fvckin town, inhabiting it's own universe sometimes. cool place to visit on the weekends, though, esp in the spring and fall.
2001-12-27 03:51:55 PM  
In other news, the Butte Pirates are very happy with their choice of mascots.
2001-12-27 03:54:41 PM
2001-12-27 03:59:47 PM  
Chapel Hill may be a singularity, but it seems
to be getting uglier and more frat-rat infested
with each passing year. The winos and crackheads
will always be there to balance it out, though.
As will the folks down at the other end of town.
And the punks at the post office, etc.

2001-12-27 04:01:04 PM  
Okay, tried it

U(gives 2 to)N-C(triple)C-H

but U has a valences of +3,4,5,6.

Then tried Cyanide..


and realized that wouldn't work..


I guess UNC-CH is a homophone for Eunuch...

(Oh yeah, it is impossible to find possible valences on web periodic tables)
2001-12-27 04:02:54 PM  
<-- Comes from Butte..

bad StinkyPinky!
2001-12-27 04:03:09 PM  
My Middle School (Which also happpens to be in Chapel Hill, NC) was abbreviated PMS.
2001-12-27 04:06:40 PM  
But of course you all knew that Apu went to
"Springfield Heights Institute of Technology", right?

This guy Can't Understand Normal Thinking.
2001-12-27 04:08:44 PM  
good job Zombie. dnsj :o)

Playa the Hutt

yeah, the frat fark problem down there just seems to get worse and worse...and all the chain stores taking over Franklin (Blockbuster Music, Gap, Taco Bell, etc.) ain't cool, but as long as the Cradle, 506, and Go! continue to get the best bands around, we can't complain too much. the post office kids, though, they are somethin else
2001-12-27 04:17:41 PM  
I don't care what they call tehmselves, as long as they quit thinking of themselves as THE UNC. I went to UNC-Wilmington (much, much more fun than UNC-CH, by the way) and we were all annoyed by Chapel Hell being all full of themselves. Personally, I applied to CH so i could turn them down (and did, much to the chagrine of my classmates (all of four of whom went to college), and the guidance counselor).
2001-12-27 04:18:06 PM  
Obviously the PR person for UNC was desperate..... They took the saying 'any PR is good' and proved it wrong

In related news......the formula: Dysprosium, Potassium, & Einsteinium has been listed as not to be combined for fear that the symbol for it 'DyKEs' would be considered harmful to lesbians.

Furthermore, the formula: Tantalum, Lithium, Barium, & Nitrogen has been forbidden by the US Government citing, 'It will only prove the Terrorists have won' if the symbols are used (TaLiBaN)

i thought 506 shut down...?
2001-12-27 04:19:21 PM  
what's up wak!
Chapel Hill here too!
2001-12-27 04:21:34 PM  
Speaking of the Local 506, be sure to check out Elvisfest on January 4-5th. 20 of the best bands in the South from Maryland to Oklahoma will be paying homage to the King of Rock & Roll. Only $10 for 10 bands each night. Whatta bargain!

Anyway, UNC sucks, Franklin St. used to be cool, and the Local and The Cave are the only cool things about it these days.
2001-12-27 04:24:02 PM  
LMAO at GmcG!

Ctenidae: Another UNCW farker! Sweet!

I'm now in Greensboro, we need to have a Carolina Fark Party!

Regarding the Chancellor, WTF?
2001-12-27 04:25:53 PM  
Yeah, we still got the music. Since I
graduated, I feel little allegiance
to the University. And since our b-ball
team now sucks ass....
2001-12-27 04:29:03 PM  
DB: it just changed ownership.
