As for the metaphor, it's about how young and pneumatic females in academia are still burdened with the barely functioning corpses of stodgy old men clogging up the works with their irrevocable tenure and refusal to retire, right?
Thanks! And I'm not sure about the metaphor yet. I need to work out something so I can claim it's a 'story of the mind'. Something even mildly plausible, really.

My suggestion is actually an excellent description of academia today. Incoming students are overwhelmingly female, senior, tenured professors are overwhelmingly male, and they JUST WON'T QUIT.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

I'll admit that it's a good idea, but it just won't work. See, it needs to be able to apply to my principal (teacher also). He's self centred that way.

Oh! What if I say it "poses deep philosophical questions"?

please please please please click the link! I know you people don't like to click these things (probably because you all have a chronic fear of rickrolls) but the forum's not accepting images and I'd like people to at least see this.

Nice UbiKid!
I can draw a lot of things.. but I can't draw me to save my life.
Something about self portraits reflecting how you feel about yourself.. maybe.
(The only thing I've drawn and uploaded onto the internet.. )

And DeTH, why don't you just say it's a story about the meaning of being dead or something about being moral. (Or how being inebriated from flaming drinks will dissolve all doubts you ever have about something)

That's pretty cool! But why's it so small?

Unfortunately, the only way I can draw is if I've got a set of instructions next to me. Other than that, I'm pretty hopeless.

because the original drawing only took up a small portion of the page. if I zoom in it looks pixelated. besides up close (in the real world) it's realy sketchy and smudgy. no one wants to see that.

here's it's next door neighbor:

drawn on the same page, this one most certainly is a zombie.

I like the swirly purple backgroud thingy.
No, really nice drawing. I used to draw, and paint. Now I am old and my creative juices have dried up.

I went through a manga phase. all my drawings from then were actualy pretty awful. but when the style evolved a few vestigal anime features remained. they won't evolve out untill there's a reason for them not to be there.

Holy cow, that's a really good drawing. I can't draw people for beans. I can do 0.5 decent animals, and really good site plans, floor plans and building sketches, but scenery stuff comes out meh.
Don't fret what you look like, UDK1, you're guarandoubledamnteed to be better looking than most of the mutants out there, and what you look like inside is way more important anyhow. You look very pretty to me.
The zombie one is really good too. It's obvious you have a knack for drawing the human form - keep at it and you might make money from it eventually.

That's awesome. I love pop tarts, and that movie is tattooed on the inside surface of my brain (along with Mary Poppins and a few others from that era). You don't have any reason to feel ungood about yourself that I've seen, you're certainly very nice and quite intelligent, and I've seen photos of you so I know you're a cutie. :wink: Go ahead and let loose with the self portraits.
