Not overheard, but:

From Craig's List Ithaca
Lost & Found:
I lost my mind recently, somewhere around Cornell. I might have left it in the stacks of Uris Library, or perhaps I lost it in Statler Auditorium since I think it was trying to run away from the differential equations exam. Its done this before, but I really need to find it before next Thursday. Thanks!!
