The Cardinal-On-Line Social Board, Spring Semester, 2004
If Fall Semester was our foundation, Spring Semester was the continued construction of COSBI's own Tower of Babel of Insanity. We got bolder, we got raunchier, we learned a bit of HTML, we continued our science-fiction allegory, we got booted off the boards on more than one occassion, and I can guarantee that we caused more than a few grey hairs here and there. It was what we did best. And, for me, it's what I continue to do.

"I went on a fieldtrip once to this place in Akron, Ohio called the Imagination Center or something, it's a museum aimed at learning middleschoolers a thing or two about science and archeology and thisandthat. Anyway, we were short one bus so some people got crowded seats. I got one of those seats. This hot girl was sitting on my lap and the ride was bumpy, so she was wriggling her bum around on my lap, which obviously made me feel...you know. I was kinda making a face and said, 'Hey, don't move around so much.' And she didn't hear me I guess, then when I said it the second time she asked why then she felt a little bump (not from the road >_>) and said, 'Oh O_o Gosh, sorry.' And she slipped off to one side, kinda squeezed inbetween me and this other girl. That was great, the only reason I didn't want her to stay on me was because I was about to pitch a tent, if you know what I mean."

called...I usually call it pop, but I can be heard using soda from time to time

He has broken free of the shackles that bind him to ignorance!"
--- The updated Platonic fable, by Jake Moore
"Is this a trick question in which I will be made to look like a moron no matter what answer I give? *suspicious look* It just seems too easy. Too good to be true even. No hidden agendas?

--- Julie Young, rightly suspicious of COSBI's motives

"No, but I am the moderator of Cardinal Online, so you have to accept that my taste has a little say in what you post on the message boards. Deal with it."
--- Kevin Melody’s intelligent reasoning behind post purges
"I've got an enormous problem with the idea that Kevin
Melody is in charge of deciding what is and isn't inappropriate. He has no
sense of humor and no appreciation for the efforts of others to amuse

"We all know the sticks and stones thing... being able to spout off on the boards might be keeping someone from shooting up a classroom."

"Hey if anyone is a sociopath- it's the ELI student from
hell that I had to live with at the beginning of last year. Not only did she not
speak English, but she was a communist, a nietzchist, had an 8 inch butcher
knife on her desk, 5 box cutters and a package of dried headless fish in her
dresser. She also never went to class because she was out drinking until 5:30am
every day. Oh and she batted for both teams too. There were pictures.
--- The Erin Long Show
"As a member of the gay community, I'm deeply offended that you have deemed 'buttsex' and any form of it inappropriate. If I'm not permitted to talk of my own sexual orientation, you can expect a letter from GLAAD soon."

"It has been brought to my attention that there have been
some discussions on forum policies.

--- Erin Long, on Saddam's capture
"Now that Secretary Ridge has graciously let us know that the Terror Alert is now back to High or 'Code Orange', we must be alert fellow Jesuitians. I think that the back gate should be cemented shut so terrorists like Osama and Saddam don't infiltrate our beautiful campus. I think we should install metal detectors at the front gate. That will show those terrorists a thing or two. We should all take our posts and be very wary of strangers (i.e. especially people from Singapore [i.e. CHRIS LIM]) I will stand guard on the Balcony from Campion and guard the back gate. Intruders shall meet their impending doom at the back passage. Be on guard."
--- Good ol’ COSBI slander from Tommy Gallagher
"When Christmas-time comes about each year, I am reminded of all those who help us in the fight against terrorism. People like Bookmaster G, standing on the back of Campion with his high-powered potatoe-gun defend us from its evil. We must be deeply grateful for his civic-mindedness, and his environmentally-friendly policies as well.
Master G brings up another good point- the threat of SINGAPORE. As is commonly known, 15 of the 21 hijackers had, in fact, heard of Singapore. This is a threat that the world must face! If we don't do something about it now, you'll see a parade of Mer-lions mer-lioning down Washington Avenue and striking fear into the very soul of Wheeling! My friends, can your hearts stand that terror? I don't think anyone can. Except Mr. T. But he's special."
--- Tim Adkins, on Tommy's proposed measures against Singapore
"Kevin Melody does sit in his room every night and cry. I live next door to him and I can hear his sobs. Through his wailing all I can usually make out is something about COSBI or something. I wish you guys would leave him alone. His life is being ruined. His future is in doubt, and I can't get any sleep because of his crying. So I make this final plea. Quit making Kevin cry."
--- Josh Collins, coming eerily close to the truth
