Frat Fail : A Mystery

“The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible...”- Oscar Wilde. One cloudy Tuesday at Texas State University, two sorority sisters, Ashley and Molly decide to go to the Kappa Sigma frat house mixer, where Brian and his best friend Chad live. Chad and Ashley had been dating since junior year in high school, Ashley believed nothing ever was going to tear them apart, so she thought. As the mixer began Chad and Brian met with Ashley and Molly and were enjoying themselves and they had not one care in the world. Around midnight, Ashley and Brian realized they had been talking for almost two hours and Ashley saw no sight of her boyfriend anywhere, she turned to Brian and asked, “ have you seen Chad anywhere?” Brian sighed and knew it would soon be time to break the news to Ashley. Brian earlier that night walked into Chad’s room to find an extra shirt because he spilt his drink on his, only to find a shiny diamond earring by his bed, he knew Ashley wore pearls and realized the scandal he just uncovered. He knew Ashley deserved to belong with him all along. Brian, Chad’s best friend had been in love with his beautiful girlfriend since before they started dating, he could just never admit it. Brian began talking, “ Ashley there’s something I, but suddenly was interrupted abruptly by the recluse of the frat brothers, Lynx Hawthorne. “Hey Brian, Ashley, I was just looking for some food somewhere, I’ve been reading Sherlock Holmes since 9!” as he pushed his glasses back on the bridge of his nose. “ Yeah, I think there’s a few slices of pizza left in the fridge” Brian said as Lynx began to walk away. “Anyways, I need to show you something Ashley,” Brian said, knowing this was his big chance. Brian got up grabbed Ashley by the hand and walked her up the stairs, they then stopped at Chad’s room, Ashley, confused and anxious yelled to Brian over the music and said, “WELL? What's up?” Brian sighed and slightly pushed open Chad’s door, and there they were, Chad and Molly, together. Ashley gasped screamed and dropped to the floor in tears. “How could y’all?! I trusted you Chad!! I’m FURIOUS..” Ashley couldn't contain her anger, all the blood was rushing to her head and she yelled for a minute too long until she finally ran off in tears, desperate for something to hold on to. Brian ran after her, realizing what he had done was wrong, Ashley collapsed at the bottom of the staircase, in need of somebody as Brian picked her up and took her back to his room. Brian knew this was all wrong, and abruptly reached into his closet, knowing what he had to do. He waited until Ashley was asleep and went out of the room only to find that the mixer had died down. He returned back to Chad’s room to find Chad and Molly still together, fast asleep. The sight of them together made Brian so angry that he knew something had to be done. Brian walked out, still shaking with anger, as Ashley began to wake up remembering the nights events, before she could get up she heard loud shrieks and thuds coming from the other side of the upstairs. In a hurry, Ashley got up and ran, frantic to find Brian to see if he was okay, before she could, a strange dark figure pushed her down the stairs and ran down after her, only leaving her a few seconds to attempt to escape. Ashley screamed and yelled for Brian, but before she could finish calling his name, something smashed into her head and she suddenly became unconscious. Brian, unaware of the events that occurred, walked down stairs, with a grim smile on his face, knowing that his one true love was waiting for him, but suddenly his dream became into a nightmare, as he stepped on warm liquid and realizing it was Ashleys blood. He screamed, fell to his knees and began to weep hysterically. “Ashley, oh no what have I done,” he wept, “this is all my.. “BOOM.” Before he could say anymore words, he was shot, straight through the back off his head, collapsing on Ashley’s lifeless body. The next day was many hours full of questions and not many answers. Lynx Hawthorne had been training to become a detective and this was the closest person the authorities could get on campus without making a scene. Lynx started his investigation with Molly and Chad. It didn't take him long to find the murder weapon, a bloody knife. He brought the crucial piece of evidence back to a crime lab where the fingerprints on the knife came back as belonging to Brian Smith. The first part of the four person murder was solved, though it seemed that karma got to Brian before the police could. Now Lynx shifted his attention to the other two murders of Brian and Ashley. After weeks of searching, probing around and deep investigation, Lynx came up empty handed. He was unable to find anything pertaining to the murder of the two young lovers and formally apologized to the police academy. At the end of the day, Lynx retires to his own Texas State dorm room, slyly grinning as he opens his door to reveal a wall full of photos containing bloody figures and gory scenes. Two of these photos capture the crime scene of Ashley and Brian's death, pictures the police had not released to the public. “Well, I guess it's on to my next case.” Lynx says with a devilish grin.

...What happened? What were the results? What is going to happen? Who was involved in the action? Who was affected by the action? Who caused the action? Who was for it and who was opposed? What were the reasons behind the action? What forces motivated the actors to perform as they did? How did the action occur? By what means did the actors accomplish the action? Actors: Motive: Method: 18 PART ONE - THE BASICS OF THE SHORT ESSAY Setting: What was the time and place of the action? What did the place look like? What positive or negative feelings are associated with this time or place? These are only a few of the dozens of questions you might ask yourself about your “drama.” ( If it helps, think of your “drama” as a murder mystery and answer the questions the police detective might ask: what happened here? to whom? who did it? why? with what? when? where? and so on.) You may find that you have a great deal to write about the combination of actor and motive but very little to say in response to the questions on setting or method. That’s fine—simply use the “dramatists’ approach” to help you find a specific topic or idea you want to write about. If at any point in this stage of the writing process you are experiencing Writer’s Block, you might turn to the suggestions for overcoming this common affliction, which appear on pages 116–118 in Chapter 5. You might also find it helpful to read the section on Keeping a Journal, pages 26–29 in this chapter, as writing......

...technologies unknown at the time of their development, they are unknowable." Bill Gates and the Culture of Puzzles 59 Following Taillights Christensen's point is not, of course, that businesspeople should reject logic. His message is akin to the advice offered to solvers of puzzles: You have to recognize that the type of reasoning that works so well most of the time may not work in certain situations. In those situations, logic can be misleading. It's necessary to step back, consider all the options, and proceed methodically. You need to combine logic with creativity and mental flexibility. It will be necessary to brainstorm a number of possible approaches, try them out without committing too many resources (for most of the approaches will fail), and then devise a game plan from what you learn. This is how both business innovation and puzzle solving work. Words such as "creativity" and "innovation" are loaded terms at Microsoft. We've all heard the rap: "Microsoft cannot make great products" (James Gleick writing in the New York Times). "It has no spark of genius; it does not know how to innovate; it lets bugs live forever; it eradicates all traces of personality from its software." An adage goes, "Microsoft just needs a set of taillights to follow." Naturally, Microsoft's people cringe at these perceptions. In public statements, Microsoft wants nothing so much as to be loved as an innovator (no one loves you just for "cutting off the air supply" of Netscape, it......

Unfortunately, that can be difficult because people often fail to express themselves clearly. Sometimes this lack of clarity is due to laziness, carelessness, or a lack of skill. At other times it results from a misguided effort to appear clever, learned, or profound. Consider the following passage from philosopher Martin Heidegger’s influential but notoriously obscure book Being and Time: Temporality makes possible the unity of existence, facticity, and falling, and in this way constitutes primordially the totality of the structure of care. The items of care have not been pieced together cumulatively any more than temporality itself has been put together “in the course of time” [“mit der Zeit”] out of the future, the having been, and the Present.

...sentiment is “behind every fortune lies a great crime.” Were the Founding Fathers criminals? Are all founders criminals of one sort or another? C. the Costs of failure Startups pay less than bigger companies. So founding or joining one involves some financial loss. These losses are generally thought to be high. In reality, they aren’t that high. The nonfinancial costs are actually higher. If you do a failed startup, you may not have learned anything useful. You may actually have learned how to fail again. You may become more risk-averse. You aren’t a lottery ticket, so you shouldn’t think of failure as just 1 of n times that you’re going to start a company. The stakes are a bit bigger than that. A 0 to 1 startup involves low financial costs but low non-financial costs too. You’ll at least learn a lot and probably will be better for the effort. A 1 to n startup, though, has especially low financial costs, but higher non-financial costs. If you try to do Groupon for Madagascar and it fails, it’s not clear where exactly you are. But it’s not good. VI. Where to Start? The path from 0 to 1 might start with asking and answering three questions. First, what is valuable? Second, what can I do? And third, what is nobody else doing? The questions themselves are straightforward. Question one illustrates the difference between business and academia; in academia, the number one sin is plagiarism, not triviality. So much of the innovation is esoteric and not at all useful.

Serial Killer

...therapy: it’s not odd to admire someone because they never raise their voice to children or animals, but it is odd to admire someone because they’ve never been a serial killer. A person might, even with the best of intentions, lose their temper with a willful child or unruly dog, but that same person will not become a serial killer, no matter how trying the plague of brat or beast descending on their home. Not even close. I remember a friend asking, during one of my Dahmer ruminations, “What could things look like to him?” Sort of like a “how the dragonfly sees the world” picture in an elementary science book, all jagged and F OREWORD ix geometric? I can’t imagine.And there’s something legitimately philosophical here, where imagination fails. It emerges with a familiar philosophical expedient: if you want to figure out what something does, find out what happens when that something goes bad; if a tamping rod through the frontal lobes has unfortunate effects on someone’s civility, as it did for Phineas Gage, maybe the frontal lobes have something to do with civility. Likewise, one way to illuminate what is valuable about human persons is to think seriously about departures from full humanity. This might happen in a variety of ways – if anything is fragile, humanity is. But serial killers have departed the fold in ways that seem quite distinct from more ordinary calamities. They are not dead – not literally, anyway. Nor are they incapacitated in the familiar senses......

Hello

...You’re a serpent; and there’s no use denying it. I suppose you’ll be telling me next that you never tasted an egg!” “I have tasted eggs, certainly,” said Alice, who was a very truthful child; “but little girls eat eggs quite as much as serpents do, you know. . . . “I’m not looking for eggs, as it happens; and, if I was, I shouldn’t want yours.”9 In this exchange, Alice fails to commiserate with the Pigeon’s state as the maternally inclined might do, but instead apologizes for annoying her. Alice’s line, “little girls eat eggs quite as much as serpents do,” even resonates with today’s pro-life/pro-choice discussion. The Pigeon names long-necked Alice a serpent; not rejecting this role for the Pigeon’s maternal one, Alice aligns herself with the serpent, predator to pigeons and eggs; rejects maternity, at least for the time being; and claims her autonomy. Alice next encounters the maternal life of the Duchess. The ugly Duchess nurses a howling baby in a smoky kitchen. To contemporary readers, Carroll’s Duchess figures as a stereotypical white-trash mother, one who screams at her child, fails to consider its well-being (in a smoke-filled room with flying debris just missing it), and accompanies her sadistic song not with soothing rocks but severe shakes at every line. Tired of her crying child, the Duchess finally flings the baby at Alice and departs to do something better, like “play croquet with the Queen.”10 Today, this Duchess could be arrested......

...planet walks all over you, spends your money, shatters your ego, and then leaves you with nothing but humiliation, depression, and a big bottle of Jergen's hand cream. In this day and age, men are continuously flooded with how-to books, primers, and psychological treatises that supposedly give them insight into the female mind. Let's face it, they're all wrong! There's not a piece of advice in any of those supposedly respectable publications that gives you a real understanding of the sickness and disease that infects most women's heads. Recognizing this absence of legitimate, reliable information, we felt the need to provide a low-cost solution to the eternal question: "How the hell did that asshole get that smoking hot chick?" It's a mystery that has confounded men throughout the years. No matter how many times you witness the event, it's still amazing to see the prick musician loudly berating his gorgeous model girlfriend as they walk down the street.

Two weeks ago, he'd seen six lovelies; today, however, there were three, and the two who'd been lying on their towels were already reaching for their shirts.
