And of course, if you happen to have a name like "Richard Wack", do not become a high school teacher. (True story. Though he is the sort of person that would have reveled in this fact).

    Reminds me of a Dutch guy I used to work with, whose first name is "Cock" (no kidding, this is a real, although not very common, Dutch first name).

    He decided to not use his first name in emails anymore after finding out his (personal) mail was always getting filtered as spam.


      I went to highschool with a girl who's first name was Semen. I just couldn't call her by it. I would always mispronounce it as "Semun".

    What is about names of people in the educational system? I know of a dean who was called Richard Woodcock. (Just how many slang terms about the same thing can you put in one name?) No, I'm not kidding.

    Reminds of the time I was working my way through college at a company owned by two men named Dick and BJ. I'm sure their respective wives got a giggle out of that.


    New address of my CGI Course.

    Or Harold Dick - who was a Math teacher at my High School.

    Some anonymous person was kind enough, one weekend, to emblazen his door with a logo similar to Activestate's new lizard - sans hands - and the school in their infinite wisdom, instead of painting the door, sandblasted the "image" off leaving the outline.

    Useless trivia: In the 2004 Las Vegas phone book there are approximately 28 pages of ads for massage, but almost 200 for lawyers.
