Twice in one day I got the same joke about In School Suspension vs International Space Station. I remember in middle school (and indeed high school, but not as often) needing to say out “International Space Station” instead of just saying ISS. I can’t tell you how many times people would look at me really funny when I say ISS, since their first thought is In School Suspension.
On that note I’ve never had In School Suspension, although I came close to getting ten days of it once. I’ve had one day of Out of School Suspension, but that was due to school protocol, and it was due to a misunderstanding which the dean fully understood was a misunderstanding.
But it got to the point I just had to make this quick doodle:
It’s hard to freehand the space station quickly.
Also don’t get me started on how many people think I’m saying ISIS when I say ISS.
Whatever the hell will I do with my UF student portal, which is affectionately also called ISIS. And the roman god Isis.
