I am Mortified beyond disbelief......I have been accused of psychobabble and that too by someone who first heard the word psychobabble from me!!! Much like Mort I am faced with the interface of Reality as it creeps through the walls of my self-constructed world of ineffectual aatlami........
Though it is true.......All these years I have been sitting for exams with nothing to say and too many big words to say it in........or to put it otherwise; the past few years have been.........a prolonged experience of augmenting gratuitous ignorance at the moment of assessment with pretentious verbosity.......and at the end of the day......despair..........the despair of facing a world which has so much to it and of which I am only able to comprehend a little and absorb even less..........

hmm, but one shud see exams as performances. you are not expected to have a lot to say about anything and everything that may creep up in the exam. what i mean is that exams are in fact tests of your ability to augment gratuitous ignorance with pretentious verbosity (as u put it) while putting on an act all the while that you are not ignorant at all. possibly, thanx to the good agencies of the psycho- and other kinds of babblogy, you mite even end up appearing you know too much for your own good.

i think this is why exams are always fun. it's all so much a challenge to don your wisdom cloak and put up a convincing performance.

I haven't figured out who u are since you haven't introduced yourself on Blabberwocky. Please do so for the benefit of the rest of the JU population who unfortunately don't know their seniors. BTW, that quote is from Surely you're joking Mr.Feynman, isn't it?

Bhooter Raja : Feynman it is, the complete lines would be...

"I wonder why, I wonder why.
I wonder why I wonder.
I wonder why I wonder 'why'.
I wonder why I wonder."

(the quotes indicate italics)

Lines often recited as

Uh wugga wuh. Uh wugga wuh.
Uh wugga wugga wugga.
I wugga wuh uh wugga wuh
Uh wugga wugga wugga.

especially by obscure profs...
