LU#24 "FEEL THE ZEAL"
Hello again! And welcome once again to the fun loveing
I hope all of you had fantastic weekends. I know I did. I had to
go with the Toadman to see his honey in Ohio. Let me tell you something. (and
I guess I am speaking to the men here) I hope none of you ever have to sit by
yourself while your friend is having his back rubbed by his girlfriend. It is
a most dissapointing thing to watch. And on that note...
It's time for the show.
The postin' place
If any one out there has some fans (electric preferable) that you will
not be using this summer, I, Justin King will be a noble man and keep them in

return in the Fall. Thanks so much. If you do have fans you can call me at

LU.DIS proudly presents!!!!>>>...???
howdy ho happy campers. what do you think about the extreme lengths of the
most recent editions of the underground? i would like to comment for a brief
moment on james stone, who according to jaMEs mcreynolds is the "epidome" of
chivalry. first off, what the fool is a freakin' epidome. is it like an
epilady, except for men who want to become bald. is it some new sort of
sporting arena, like the skydome or the georgia dome? or was some sort of very
weird fruedian slip in which james tried to spell "epitome", but instead of
putting the "to me" part, he put "do me"?!?! things that make you go hmmmmm....
now james very well may be one of the few bastions of chivalry left standing, i
don't know, but i am his roommate, and let me tell you, his chivalry most
definitely does not extend to the proper upkeep and cleanliness of the humble
and very small room he and i share. many mornings i awaken to the beautiful
nashville sunshine (or for the past few months to the dreary and drenched
nashville morings) only to look across the expanse of our room and become
absolutely horrified at the corrosion and utter filth i see. after slowly and
painstakingly trekking my way across the nation's newest and most dangerous
mountain range, whose highest peak i have appropiately named mount trashmore,
twice (to and from the shower), i just hope and pray that my physics homework
won't fall prey to some avalance of greek papers and dirty clothes coming from
the snowcapped peaks of mount trashmore and its neighboring mountains. i just
hope that i won't fall into some crevice hidden from the naked eye by a facade
of seemingly structurally sound conglomerations of those red basket things from
dairy queen and other paraphanalia. then, when i do fall into the abyss, i just
hope that the slightly congealed red substance i find on my arms, legs, and neck
is just that week old ketchup on those week old fries found in one of those red
baskets which somehow found its way to mount trashmore rather than the trash
can. besides all that, james is more than a decent roomate and guy, i guess.
I am new to the LU, and whew! I'm overwhelmed with the vast opinions expressed
therein (and the vast majority of typos/grammatical errors, but I'm not your
English teacher, so I'll refrain from correcting you, largely from fear that
I'll make a mistake as well and be deemed a HYPOCRITE--a favorite word on the
Anyway, I think it's great that we have this forum to express our opinions, and
that we can realize that people have different opinions and THAT'S OKAY! I for
one really love Lipscomb. This is my second year, and I have met some of the
greatest people (including students, teachers, administrators, etc.) God has
put on this earth. I honestly believe that the administrators and teachers are
here to help us. I mean, they could be making a lot more money at other
schools, but they chose to work here, at a Christian school. I can't say that
everyone feels the same, but that's okay. (Sorry for the Stuart Smalley
I guess my main point is that if there's something you feel is wrong with the
school, don't just complain about it--do something about it. Talk to the SGA,
the administration, teachers, whatever. I know from having talked to them for
the Babbler that they are genuinely interested about us. (No, the
administration did NOT pay me to say this).
This is by no means a perfect school, but there is only one perfect place, and,
believe it or not, Lipscomb wants to help us all get there. If you don't like
Lipscomb, then stop wasting valuable money and leave. There are plenty of
other schools out there. I know that some of you out there may not agree with
me, and that's actually good--it shows us that God gave us free minds and
individual personalities. Sorry for all the rambling.

Did everyone read the DESIGNATED CHAPEL SEATING POLICY? I appreciate
James Rose informing us about what is going on in our student government and I
hope he continues this. But I can not agree with a desinated seat in
chapel. If noise and disturbances are a problem in chapel choosing a seat with
your friends at the beginning of the semester will not help. You will be
sitting next to someone you know - or will know shortly after sitting next to
them 5 days a week. This would not decrease the noise level whatsoever. I also
disagree with this policy because I believe that it would promote cliques
among friends that all sit together and therefore would do nothing to
encourage unity and a focus on God. If you also disagree with this policy
Don't tell me. Tell your SENATORS!! They will cast your vote. As far as the
snow school policy goes.... I AGREE! I think that the recent snows revealed
how much not closing school can endanger the lives of off campus students.
It is a really good proposal, Katie.
To Lee Mayo:
About your pet sea monkies: A process call cryptogenics is what "magically
brings the monkies to life" when you add water. Basicall the little creature
have been freeze dried and all of the water has been sucked out of them. Life
temporarily stops until water brings them back to life. But don't worry, this
process can not be performed on humans (as the movie Forever Young would
suggest...) Dr. Yates (DLU's cytologist) states that we are too thick
to be freeze dried. :)

This is in response to (Mike Johnston's) Finaaly's cutdown on Lipscomb in the
Yes, I have been in the Admissions Office. I work there as often as I can as
part of my work-study financial aid. For your information, they aren't all a
bunch of good-looking Lipscomb graduates. Lucius Wallace, the counselor for the
to Memphis-Texas-Arkansas-plus some area never went to Lipscomb. But what
better way to encourage prospective students than to hire some graduates
who want to work here and give them a chance to talk to students from a
first-person point of view. Some of these people are new. Last year, one of
the admissions counselors got married and took a new job at Faulkner University
in Alabama If you had the job of doing all that paperwork, traveling to
different towns talking to a bunch of kids at churches, many of whom don't care
about what you are saying, calling parents and high school students on the
phone many times at night or on Saturdays, you might leave after 4 or 5 years
too. Let's face it, DLU doesn't exactly give out the best salaries in the
world, either. Maybe you should go on over to the Admissions office and help
out by calling some of the prospective students or better yet, go to talk to
one of the counselors and find out what their job is really like before you go
bashing them and complaining about things you don't know the whole story about.
You might just change your mind.
About the radon levels, don't just complain here in open forum with
fellow students. Write letters to the administration and voice your opinion.
When the president receives numerous letters about problems like excessive
amounts of radon in the dorms, I really doubt he'll just let it slide. Don't
expect things to change just by complaining about it--go out there and do
something about it!!!!
I am happy to answer any questions regarding any Senate proposals anyone
might have. Give me a call at 1029 or E-mail me at KMLAWRENCE. I'm not there
to vote for myself, but to vote in your best interest.
How about something positive about Lipscomb on the LU?? I happen to
like it here even though there are some things I have problems with. If we
focus only on the negative, where are we going and what is our real purpose for
even being here? To criticize? I sincerely hope not!
Thanks for letting me voice my opinion!
It seems that in the last LU, the word 'hypocrit' was mentioned over and
over. True, people are deterred from churches because of the hypocratic nature
of 'all churches.' No sense in trying to deny the fact that there will be at
least one, if not more (I think I'll opt for the more...), person or people that
are hypocrits. However, I think that this is just used as an excuse not to
go or continuing to go to church. People see the "dos" and "don'ts" of
Christianity and back off away from the church because they see some people in
the church doing the "don'ts." If this was a feasable excuse, then I think
that the idea of becoming a hermit and isolating myself from the rest of
humanity would be an excellent idea! There is hypocracy in ALL of the world.
I mean come on, doctors tell you that smoking is bad, yet my doctor still
smokes. Hypocracy just doesn't cut it as an excuse any more. True, Christians
are SUPPOSE to be less of a hypocrit than everybody else, but we are human,
contrary to popular beliefs. That's life...It's not fair, but in the end, it
WILL be justified. That's my 2 cents worth. (Well, maybe 2 cents is a bit
high-priced for my opinion.) Have a happy, HAPPY day!

hear the other's) JS:()
Ok....TIME OUT!!!!! What is it with everyone getting on everyone else's case???
This is a time to express your opinions, not crack on someone. Quit judging
people and telling them what they are doing wrong in life. Most of you are
acting like a bunch of mind-crazed Psychologist (Shrinks for short). No offese
to the psychology majors, but to me they are a bunch of people who get paid
to tell you what they THINK is wrong with you. No one knows anything about how
someones mind works, so lay off. Just keep it as a strict opinion!!! Quit
trying to analyze everyone....it's a poor way to show that your better than
Now, to Chris Challis- What did you say??? I didn't hear the question you asked
Ken- Sorry, I've never taken a foreign language in my life...I can't seem to
hear all the phrases and how to enunciate each word. My fault...
MAC (And everyone else)- How do you know if Pan doesn't know you??? Do you even
know who he is??? Didn't think so. If you do know him, don't tell anyone....
he wants to remain annonymous and I respect his wishes. And so should everyone
Stoner- I'm behind you 100% bud. Need me to escort, just call.
James, my worst half- Epidome? Is it a football field or a ice rink??? I think
you meant *Epitomy*. =)
Eric West- I feel better, do you??
Bart Bowling- NO it's not Basketball season!! *sheesh*
Lee Mayo- My man, I never knew a math major who thinks so much about the finer
delemas in life.
Everyone- RELAX. Quit trying to be better than everyone else!!!!!! Did you
know that you could learn a lot about life by watching turtles?!?!?

PS-You could learn a lot from a Dummy!
Dear James, uh...ok. I am not sure why you would like my definitions of scum,
jerk and rape, but here you go.
Jerk- 1) A person who intentionally hurts someone and does not care afterwards.
2) A person who unintentionally hurts someone but even after they find out,
still could care less.
Scum- One who repetedly acts like a jerk.
Rape- Sexual intercourse with an unwilling partner (no matter what she does to
lead you on beforehand).
There ya go. That's how I feel about it.
P.S JANNA ABERNATHY AND JANA STEPHENSON ARE DIFFERENT PEOPLE! (please at least
try to spell our names correctly. To James and everyone else).
Women are kind of like WordPerfect. WordPerfect has a help directory,
which if you push F3, will tell you exactly what you need to do. If you ask
a woman for help, you'll get the built-in instruction manual.

Wow. I'm impressed by all those who wrote back so quickly. I'm glad
Lara and Dustin took extra special time to consider the Senate watch section
of the last LU: I hope if you care about what Chapel will be like next
semester, you will look back at the last LU: and read the proposal by Chad
Emerson. Another good thing you can do is go to the Senate meating monday night
and voice your opinion there. If you can't go, talk to your Senator and tell
them how you feel. I'm glad that this LU: wasn't as much of a bashing of
people's thoughts as the last one. I'm with Katie, why don't we only write
what we love about Lipscomb(food, showers, tuition, and the like). It might
make for a shorter LU:, but I'm sure the world would be a better place.
