    OK, geeks are resistant to neck ties. So here’s a tie with resistance printed right on it.
    This creates a Kirkonian logic problem.
    Must wear tie.
    I hate ties.
    I will show my resistance on the tie.
    I now like tie a little and have less resistance to it.
    To be truthful, i must now lessen listed resistance.
    Showing less resistance isn’t as kewl.
    Showing more resistance means i like it so it is a lie.
    But showing less resistance means i no longer like it, so it is a lie.
    Ahhhhh!
    less is more
    more is less
    *kabloom*
    Gee thanx guys, the neck tie used to be just a noose, now it’s a self-imploding detonator.

    Very nice of school to work in fashion design as well to think of other people would not lose the things that so many people follow suit.
    Thank you,,,
