Are serious movies hypocritical? Does the inherent fakeness in the media of presentation undermine the moral thematic value of a story? I mean, the effects are props, the issues are over-dramatized, and the actors don't believe in a fucking word of the lines they're reciting - they go home and snort cocaine.

Hello stranger. I am confused, perhaps you could help me.

Does revealing the truth of one's past create more room for misunderstanding someone than hiding it?

"So some student tell me... ah... take home midterm was... ah... difficult? Ah... if take home exam difficult... ah... maybe not go to Berkeley. Maybe go to other university. Get better grade. If take home exam is difficult... ah... maybe next time, closed book, closed notes, in class... is easier? Berkeley graduate program accepts students from schools lower than MIT and Berkeley with better grades. Consider that." - Professor Luke Lee (BioE 121)

Today I examined a quarter in my pocket that was stamped in 1965, and for the first time was fascinated by the fact that it was made 40 years ago. My dad was still in high school, JFK was alive, Neil Armstrong had not set foot on the moon yet, the Vietnam war was going on, civil rights movements were in full swing, Berkeley was probably still shitty though. A quarter, something I take so for granted everyday, has taught me to appreciate time. I respect it for what it has outlived, 40 years is almost half a century, the Forrest Gump of quarters. A lot of history is embedded in this little coin. Tomorrow he's going into the parking meter.
