sociologican graffiti

In 7th floor men's bathroom here in Social Science, the following has been written on the wall of one of the stalls:
MAN IS FOOLISH TO CHOOSE WAR OVER PEACE
FOR IN PEACE, SONS BURY THEIR FATHERS
FOR IN WAR, FATHERS BURY THEIR SONS
Of course, societies are usually set up so that the choice over war over peace is made by fathers, rather than sons (or mothers). Those fathers: foolish like a fox!

Meanwhile, in the 2nd floor men's bathroom, a graffito has appeared on the inside of the stall that has a large heart with EMILY LOVES LISA inscribed in black Sharpie. While I could easily be mistaken, the handwriting does look oddly like that of one of my (male) colleagues. Who knows what that is about.

Shush, LDM. I know that "Emily" or "Lisa" (or both) are you.

At this conjunction I say'th naught
thy conjecture with speculation is fraught
Verily! I shall never be caught!
my alibis in iron are wrought!
to hire a sleuth thou aught
what ha'th thy theorems of probability taught?
loose regressions like shoddy goods soon fall apart after bought
Lo! my name in the wrong discipline thou has't errantly sought
thou has't taken thy best shot
and an empty sack of donuts is all ye've got

LDM is real pert and sassy, ain't he/she?

In the girls bathroom in the chem building, some Zen-of-Demography-type has written, "10 OUT OF 10 PEOPLE DIE" on the stall wall.
