You know you’ve been studying too much computer science when you hear the lyrics “there are only 2 kinds of people in the world” in Britney Spears’ Circus, and immediately correct it in your head to, “No, there are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don’t. Take that Britney.”
And now, to borrow a concept from the website Overheard in New York: SPOTTED IN UBC.
SPOTTED IN THE SUB. Last Friday evening – five middle-aged men intensively playing a game of Yu-Gi-Oh cards next to the food court. I was tempted to stay and watch.
SPOTTED IN THE COMPSCI BUILDING. The day before Valentine’s Day – a couple who looks like they’re about to consummate their relationship on the sofa in the atrium in open view. OH MY EYES! MY EYES!
Did you spot something outrageous, delicious, hilarious, or gorgeous (like Jennifer Aniston’s dress at the Oscar’s)? Feel free to email them to me and share the *cough* learning experience.

Have you seen Overheard in Vancouver?
I love that song! Britney’s back, bi*ch.
Anyway, lovestruck couples are nauseating to watch. Hence the annual shut-myself-at-home V-Day.
Remember the days when old men used to play chess and not a card game with anime drawings that are targeted towards 10 year olds? yeah, me too.
btw pokemon cards were way cooler~
I bet you enjoyed the show on Feb. 13 in the compsci building. Oh wait.
YOU ARE THE SHOW.
maybe they were getting off on seeing you.
That is an AWESOME website.
Pikachu, use thunder bolt!
[dot dot dot] I ONLY NEEDED TO BE SCARRED ONCE! I am the show? Why thank you *courtesies*
Hahahaha, best moment at UBC?
Overheard, while in line at Ike’s. “HEY, SASKATCHEWAN IS MORE LIBERAL THAN YOU THINK!” – irate guy in line behind me.
Though, overhearing this snippet of “Penguins? Grass? What?”, while walking to Swing, was pretty priceless too.
Do you have to learn binary for CPSC 121?
Yep, decimal/octal/binary/hexadecimal inter-conversions. Midterm was a killer. You should’ve seen the amount of people complaining in the Anonymous Board on Vista.
Old Chinese Couple. Regulars of the UBC recycling bins. Carrying two big black bags of their loot over their shoulders with a huge bamboo stick. Like this: O—O
This rice paddy technique seemed surreal in a place like UBC…
@Brent – Oh my gosh. I haven’t had the eye-opening experience of stumbling across this couple yet. Rice paddy technique, gotta get a photo next time.
