    35 years later, his professor signed a form to retroactively change his grade.

    There’s something about the way he said I’ll treasure it for all time that makes me think he’s already come on it at least twice

    This guy, Gregory Watson, is dominant, which is distinct from being powerful

    Which is something that the hotshots and James Gunn making the new HBO Peacemaker TV series don’t seem to understand

    Also, f Aquaman

    He got a trophy from Michael Kosta; and all Texas gave him was a hard time. You’d think he would at least be able to have a publishing company want to write his story.

    Thank you to the teacher for ticking him off enough that he made it happen!
    And of course, thank you to Gregory Watson for getting it done!

    I wonder how that professor felt when she learned that the paper she dismissed ended up becoming an amendment.
