CRAIG CONLEY (Prof. Oddfellow) is recognized by Encarta as “America’s most creative and diligent scholar of letters, words and punctuation.” He has been called a “language fanatic” by Page Six gossip columnist Cindy Adams, a “cult hero” by Publisher’s Weekly, a “monk for the modern age” by George Parker, and “a true Renaissance man of the modern era, diving headfirst into comprehensive, open-minded study of realms obscured or merely obscure” by Clint Marsh. An eccentric scholar, Conley’s ideas are often decades ahead of their time. He invented the concept of the “virtual pet” in 1980, fifteen years before the debut of the popular “Tamagotchi” in Japan. His virtual pet, actually a rare flower, still thrives and has reached an incomprehensible size. Conley’s website is OneLetterWords.com.
Rain always looks like this to those with slow metabolisms. Also note that he has a cat's eye. Cats can slow time, which is how they're able to catch mice at seeming lightning speed from the observer's perspective. From American's 1985 yearbook.
The sign says, "Flight insurance for this elevator on sale in the lobby." With insurance costs what they are nowadays, if the elevator just keeps on going, one has no recourse. From Presbyterian College's 1969 yearbook.
Time-bending -- can you believe this photo begins a 1976 yearbook? It's true, and it's beautiful evidence of how yearbooks are compact time travel devices. From Lakeview College of Nursing's 1976 yearbook.
