UTK hasn't tried the pay garage yet, but it won't be long before they get the idea. They had to build a new garage to get it down to the numbers I listed. I am glad that my class now is more toward the evening, so I don't have to enter the warzone that is parking at UTK in the middle of the day.
UTK hasn't? Our campus has a 5-story pay garage, but since it's a reserved lot, students with general parking tags are EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN to park there. Parking cops are total schmucks about it, too.
Unfortunately, faculty/staff don't have specific lots. Most of the lots closest to my building are Reserved ($292/yr) and I refuse to pay that! Parking in the morning can take 45mins of driving around campus looking for a spot since we have so few general lots... MFers.
Bottom line: Holls now walks to work most days.
EDIT: Oh yeah, my campus admits they oversell the parking permits. We have 12K students; they probably sell 15K tags. Parking is a quacking NIGHTMARE here.
Yeah, but you get to walk across a beautiful river in a very clean downtown.
Also Bonzai's school sounds different, but this isn't something I could ever be sympathetic too.
Student's have to pay to go to school, don't see why they shouldn't have some of the same perks as the people paid to be there.
It's a very small, urban school. There isn't enough space for everyone to have a spot- even more so than the big universities. The parking lot I usually park in isn't even near any dorms. So it's not even a matter of Faculty/Staff get the good spots and students are screwed. It's just a matter of kids trying to sneak their cars on campus. If you want an urban school the parking will be extremely limited. If you want more space, go rural. Faculty/Staff HAVE to commute, so we HAVE to have a space. An 18-year old living on campus does not have to.

Apparently your schools are very unorganized as far as parking. At Arizona the Parking and Transportation Department is big shit. It doesnt matter if you are a Freshmen or The President of the University, you pay the same fee. Every lot and garage is a different permit, except two zoned areas on the outskirts of campus. The annual fee is somewhere between 350 and 550 a semester and if you park some place you shouldn't for more than about 5 seconds you will get a ticket. I guess that's how you have to do it when you have 50,000 students and tons of staff and employees, the vast majority of which live off campus.

PS were you a street shout out on Cash Cab Bonz?
It's not at all unorganized. There is just minimal parking and nothing they can really do about it. So students need to relearn every semester what they can and cannot do. We're only 2,300 students.
Ha! That would make my day if someone thought that I looked smart enough to use me for their shout out on.
I wear thong only. AND I HATE SOCKS! When people leave socks on, even when walking around the house, all I can think of is a bad old porno.
Leading to our next question, why is Bonz viewing old pornos?
In high school, I owned a tape called F*ck-O-Rama 4 (which was super old, even for the time). I was also in an all-girls select choir. We were all basically good friends as we spent at least one period a day, all four years together. We would have "Pizza, Beer and Porn" nights. They were a great time. Some of my more conservative friends would be a tad uncomfortable, but then would freak out when I added sound effects like, "slap slap slap slap"
PS. There were many scenes and most of them wore socks.

I once found a VHS porn tape near the woods by my local junkyard. I took it home and tried to play it but it didn't work. I kept it for a while and then randomly tried it in another vcr and it worked. This was the first actual "porn" that I owned.
The first time I saw porn was a mistake. My older cousins asked if I wanted to watch playboy with them and I thought it was a new type of gameboy video game thing. Boy was I wrong.
My dad had just bought a scrambler cable box and was hooking it up. I was about 5, which would make my brother about 3 at the time. My brother and I were just doing little kid things of no importance and my mom was sitting there reading. My dad hooks it up and goes "okay! who wants to try it out!?" Me and my brother both ran to help him even though we watched the Simpsons and basically nothing else besides the Mets.
So me and my brother sit about a foot away from the TV and my dad starts flipping. He doesn't know the channels because it's an illegal box that scrambles the signal, so he stumbles on the Spice network. For those who don't know, Playboy was child's play compared to Spice (which was like, super hardcore porn). My dad almost had a heart attack, dropped the remote (that went under the entertainment system) and was trying to fish out the remote while trying to cover both of our eyes at the same time. I started laughing and my brother looked at my mom and went ".....ooooh! They're in LOVE!" before running out of the room.
To this day my mom does a facepalm and shakes her head when that story gets told, which is a lot because it's ridiculous that my 3-year old brother saw that and associated it with "love." He was ahead of his time, clearly.
Does Showgirls count as "first porn"? I remember my grandfather watching it (he was a hornball- I also found crates of pornos) when I was over there. Besides that, I have little to no early porn memories.

Random stuff in my office. We hired a new girl this week completely from outside the company. No referral or anything. Her first day is yesterday and in walking around the office she bumps into her neighbor of 20 years. We hired him about 3 months ago. Crazy small world.

Geez, go to a few meetings and you miss all the porn talk.
I was 10 for my first porn. My brother is 14 years older than me and had rented one. I walked out into the living room one night while he was watching some sort of wild west porn set in a saloon. He said "hey josh have a seat." And so I did.
