What the?

It's a conspiracy... well at the least a controversy!
And to think that I just noticed it. Let me explain with a small image:

This is a schematic representation of part of our campus.
A is the Natural sciences and technology institute (my place)
B is the international living residence (coïncidentally located right next to e a crematorium)
C is the only zebra the crosses that big ol road
D Is the busstop
And to the right you can see the road leading to the sportscentre

Now the thing is if we want to go to the busstop (from A to D) in a LEGAL manner. We need to walk all the way to the IS residence, cross the road and walk back again. What is this? Do they think that we are all nerds (... okok we are) who love studying so much that we practically spend our nights at the institute and will not be needing the busstop?
Same thing goes for the sportcentre. What were they thinking? "oh gees, they're all nerds, they doon't do sports sp they don't need a direct road leading to it." WTF MAN! It's a conspiracy to make all Beta student into ubernerds! It's such a subtle plan that I didn't even realise it untill today. If we want to do some sports or get to the busstop we either need to take the uncomfortable long walk that takes us past the IS residence or risk our lives and cross the road without using the zebra (and actually breaking the law too!).

So I ask of you why isn;t there a zebra conveniently placed at that big red questionmark? It's because normal people don't like scientists, they think we're different. Well let me tell you something mister hotshot downtown office. We are different, we're smarter than you! But for now we'll risk our lives either by walking past the IS residence or by crossing the street unprotected by tthe zebra's comforting white stripes.

Damn you city hall! We'll get u for this!

PS: sry for the crappy image, but we don't have a serious imaging program at the faculty. this one's in paint.

pffft not using the zebra isn't illegal as far as I know.
So ok..it's stupid not to walk on the zebra if there's one right under your nose..but it's not illegal (at least I think).

@E-bean..well yeah maybe but at least I smiled at it.

Now go watch Lost!!! that is obligatory!!!

at least they get zebra crossings.

Try to get across the street near the university buildings in the center of town.
You stay alive by walking a bit further...we just get driven over ;)

I stay alive by being able to counteract the kinetic energy that an X-ton weighing bus brings to bare by utilizing quantum fysics.
See that would be a load of crap to the avarage person. But to me it just says that I'm getting out of the way of the damn big ass crush all bus.

Man I just saw this chick on the bus that had these near elf like features. Man it was beautifull! Good thing it was the short ride from the faculty to the trainstation otherwise I would have probably gone on overload. >.<

Conspiracy èh? So they could actually really find out what we (townhall) do with them...

Perhaps phase two should be initialized, placing a barb-wired fence around the Bèta-site with searchlights and loud speaking, big mustached guards...

But you really have got nothing important to do than this èh?

I guess it also applies to me: or else I wouldn't be making this slightly useless/pointless remark on your blog.
