A new runner-up for the title of the worst academic job offer ever. If there are any more spoiled pieces of garbage from Cornell who want to come here and defend this hell-hole of a college, can they please go and choke on their own shit instead?
“And if you try opening 2-3 Chrome windows with 20-30 tabs in each one, that piece of shit is like using Windows 95 on a 386sx with 4MB of RAM way back when. It crawls so slowly it might be going backwards in time.” Yes. That has become a huge problem for me. I thought I was doing something wrong but now I’m realizing it’s the nature of this browser. Maybe I should ditch the Chrome at this point.
“The negative side-effects of urban biking under the current transport regime are a case study in how individualized solutions (“You don’t like the bus and don’t want to drive? Ride a bike!”) are not solutions.” I agree completely. Urban bikers are an enormous problem in big cities.

If you want to have some fun, go read these quotes from Sarah Palin’s new book. They are hilarious.

“One imagines that because one cannot see how life is already completed that is requires rational or moral measures for its completion. Condemn drone strikes or announce that racism is wrong. Work to make sure life complies with your specifications. It’s supposed to grow into the shape you’ve designed for it.”
This Orthodox deacon single-handedly redeemed the religion of my ancestors in my eyes, so let’s read his great post on the dissing of the Humanities.
This post demonstrates in great detail how co-dependency works. Scary shit, folks. It’s extremely hard to accept that co-dependents choose their sad existence but it’s true. they live exactly the way they want to live.
I’m also curious why many people choose to move to Patheos. What does it offer in return for stealing your blog name and your hits?
