People have the weirdest erotic fantasies: “I’d love to see Bradley Cooper and Vladimir Putin duke it out, shirtless, in a ring, in no-holds-barred boxing and wrestling. Now that would be a way to settle our diplomatic differences with Russia!” And then everybody is shocked that 50 Shades is so popular.
Amazing 3D drawings in the sand. The text is in Russian, but who cares. Just look at the drawings.
“The result was a flourishing matriarchy, in which a woman’s authority and stature grew with age and in which—thanks to the proximity of employment for the menfolk and the geographically compressed layout of working-class districts—the households of Mum and of her married daughters’ families were, and in fact had to be, nearly always at most a few blocks away and often on the same street.” This bit of brainless idiocy reminded me of why I quit reading Zinn’s otherwise very good People’s History. Neither Zinn nor this male author have the slightest inkling of what an absolute, soul-crushing horror this for of family life is to women. The facile fools actually insist that it’s somehow good for women to exist in this horrifying way.
It’s tiresome how stupid people are: “Meyers argues that something like 30% of the instructional period every day is lost to “interruptions,” or other non-instructional tasks like distributing materials, switching tasks, or taking attendance. Tapping into technology connected to the Internet of Things, he argues, has the potential to eliminate these inefficiencies.” Interruptions are crucial for the absorption of information. Even sleep is better and more restful when it is interrupted. Have these idiots ever been inside a classroom?
Scott Walker’s tiresome stupidity. I actually had to check the name twice before finishing the previous, very short sentence. All of these fuckers – Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, Jeb Bush – are so extraordinarily stupid that it’s hard to keep touch which of the idiots is guilty of the greatest idiocy of the day.
Here is another one of those illiterate presidential candidates making an ass of himself on the subject of Israel.
What I find really incredible is that after MOOCs failed by every single measure and even their creators publicly called them lousy, there are still weirdos who believe that “MOOCs will save the world” because there is supposedly some huge issue in higher ed caused by evil scholars who do research. Why don’t they take their delusional fixation on “research” to a psychiatrist already?
Of course, there is no addiction to sex.
The qualifications of AA counselors – or, rather, a terrifying lack thereof.
A fascinating true story of an immigrant who really hated Canada.
The good things that came out of the Recession: “At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a premier source of young recruits, only 9.9 percent of undergraduates went into finance in 2013, compared with the 31 percent that took jobs on Wall Street in 2006, before the financial crisis.” Yes, it’s just one good thing. The rest is bad.
