90% Of People Can't Pronounce This Whole Poem. You Have To Try It.:

Many are aware that American soldiers used baseball questions to determine the identity of soldiers they suspected of being spies. But did you know that this poem was used more often? Soldiers were required to memorize it and use it as their bona fides. For trickier operations, Chaucer's prologue to the Canterbury Tales was recited in Middle English.

Guys, do you want to pick up SMART chicks? Derrida is the answer to your prayers:

Carry these books around and say things like, "Deconstructionist semiotic analysis, which I've discussed in numerous texts, is largely an explanation for the devaluation of the ruble." You can get the books at Slothrop's and nowhere else in Estonia. Nowhere, man. They're new, and we've priced 'em to move.
