HSU Announces Arkley Bigfoot Interdisciplinary Studies Institute Group, $4 million grant

bigfootHave you ever wondered about our area’s unique, possibly mythical, definitely hairy fauna?

Humboldt State University, a subsidiary of the California State University, is proud to present a new interdisciplinary institute, ABISIG, the Arkley Bigfoot Interdisciplinary Studies Institute Group.  ABISIG is possible thanks to a generous $4 million founding grant by Rob Arkley, Jr., now Institute Professor Dr. Robin Arkley, Jr.

ABISIG will be examining the implications of Bigfoot across disciplines including hotel management, public relations, biology, anthropology and, of course, theology.  The Institute will accept graduate students, and it is anticipated that (unlike, e.g., Nursing), the courses will be extremely profitable.  We also anticipate an 82% overhead charge, and a decently-large conference budget.

Courses will begin in the fall.  The local community is welcome to participate via extension.  A small fee of $1,500 will cover materials in each course.  Course titles haven’t been finalized, but it is anticipated that the survey course will be called “Cannabis, Bigfoot, and the Tourist Dollar: A Comparative Analysis of Floral vs Animal Approaches to the Sustainability of a formerly Colonial Culture.”

    Nothing better to do but to do the Arkley thing, I actually used to think that the Herald had a roll in local discussion, now just Mitch’s rant blog, really stupid.

    That’s right, jmc. Sometimes my hatred of Rob Arkley boils over.

    At least Josh and Conrad were witty in their meaness. Now we have moved to simply stupid and mean. Come on Mitch, you’re a smart guy can’t you find more creative ways to be hurtful and malicious?

    Oh I forgot, you have done more than mean and stupid. How could having provided a forum for anti-semitism have slipped my mind. I should have said mean, stupid, hatefilled, and racist. Now thats more accurate. For a guy who should be sympathetic to victims of hate and ignorance you sure can spew the bile with the best of them.

    Wait! I realized, there’s no need to wait.

    With a heavy heart and especially deep sincerity, I hereby apologize to any of the parties checked off above.

    Instead of a snide comeback you might actually consider the the possibility that the criticism is well founded.

    OK. Seriously. Who was the meanness directed at, in your opinion?

    The readers of the Herald.

    No, SFG. The readers of the Herald can just sigh and move on. But I wish Anonymous would answer. I genuinely don’t know what their answer will be.

    You’ll notice it took JW fourteen minutes to realize that Arkley was not a target here, generate a second comment, and post it.

    Incidentally, the little meter that indicates visits per hour tripled this late morning over where it’s been for the last week. That could just be that there were more posts to click on.

    If you say so Mitch, it must be true. I for one, have found today’s posts insulting. Mostly because it’s trivial BS, you are trivializing HH, and your comments yesterday about readers not being interested in gay Jamaican social issues further reinforces my perception. Ask PBS, CBS, Hear BS, any of them: Ratings count!

    OK, SFG. You’ve found today’s posts insulting. In someone’s words the other week, you’re probably “offended.” I hear ya.

    Yes, I’m trivializing the HH. I’ve trivialized the HH from the start.

    As for the hits, I’ve made this up for you: herald hits per hour

    If you’d like to see it detrivialized, feel free to write 500 words on any subject of your choice and post it to “Quick Notes.” The moment I spot it, I’ll rush it to the front page, giving you full credit, the Herald will be elevated by your words, and it will be a momentary victory against censorship.

    It’s all yours, to uplift or trivialize into obscurity. Have a good weekend, chao.

    When Heraldo was in charge, this blog at least was topical, politically pointed, albiet very liberal. Now just a place for Mitch’s ramblings that seem to be important to him and few others.

    “Now just a place for Mitch’s ramblings that seem to be important to him and few others.”

    At last. Someone gets it.

  18. January 25, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    “Incidentally, the little meter that indicates visits per hour tripled this late morning”

    Whoops my finger got stuck on the button.

    That’s called a Denial of Service attack, BillGraham. I’m sending you off to Guantanamo.

  20. Oh well

    Wow, a simple name change fooled you.

    I miss Captain Boooner, but I like Heraldo and Mitch.

    As stupid as this topic is (really Mitch?) it did generate 22, now 23 posts.

    So who is more stupid, Mitch for starting this waste of a topic or us for responding ?
