Preparing Norc, no, Eldo for a life of college debauchery. Though it won't exactly be college; the grad school version of debauchery being far more refined.

How does somebody get thrown out of club for doing air guitar?

Glad you celebrated, even gladder we got to hear about it! Twisted Evil Sounds like properly blurry night. I think you should follow up on the air guitar guy.

Tell him you're on the rebound and may break his heart out of spite. That's usually a solid start and I'm not kidding. Gets all the crap out of the way right up front.

I'm not sure if this is an actual sentence written by a human being or if it was generated by some sort of buzzword algorithm but either way it made it into the lecture notes for a class I'm taking this semester.

A 2011 IBM study concluded that creative leaders who "embrace the dynamic tension between creative disruption and operational efficiency can create new models of extraordinary value."

This is really fucking with me so I tried to find the original source and got a summary of the study from IBM's website, which states that "[b]y harnessing the energy of opposites, creative leaders and their organizations can benefit from new assumptions that replace less effective 'either/or' approaches", which leads to such mind-blowing insights as:

Finding solutions to complex problems requires both analytical and creative thinking styles working together

Creative leadership is about seeking opportunities for shared value creation, even in the toughest of times and the most difficult of circumstances

Complex systems (for example, the human body) are able to adapt in an orderly fashion to unexpected challenges because their many distinctive parts work smoothly together

Those just beg to be turned into inspirational posters. Laughing

Though I think a good exercise would be trying to rewrite them so they don't come off as buzzword drool. That's a skill.

Okay, I'll take on my own challenge on the first one.  Here's a first pass:

"Complex problems can be solved, but not by dogged pursuit of a single line of thought.  The artist and analyst must join forces."

Hmm, still needs work.  The first sentence doesn't sing.  Maybe combining them?

"Truly complex problems are only solved when the artist and analyst join forces."

Still not there. Perhaps I need to get out of the passive voice.

Another complex problem is solved every time an artist and analyst make love.
