“A Final Report On Letting The Academic Dream Die.” A great example of “The lady doth protest too much.“
Another idiot writing something idiotic about Ukraine: “His remarks on Ukraine may be the worst of all. Not only does he favor the dangerous option of sending arms to Ukraine, but he does so in the false belief that “they’re our allies.” Allies are exactly what they aren’t, which is why the U.S. has never been obliged to support them in an armed conflict.” Apparently, the words “Budapest memorandum” never crossed this fool’s mind. And yes, allies are exactly what they are, Mr. Brain-Dead.
An extreme case of hurt feelings. People really need to control their extreme reactions to having their feelings hurt.
Russia is reaching into its old bag of tricks to find an explanation for the forest fires devastating the country.
We are all so different. While some academics are terrified they won’t be able to effectuate their mid-career move, I fear that I might be forced to do it.
People are turning into such incredible sissies that publishing the linked photos of oneself is now considered “gutsy”. I wonder what it should feel to have such a sheltered life that something like this would even register, let alone feel like some major feat.
In case you are interested in Jeremy Clarkson, read this article.
At first, I thought this author was making a disgusting quip about Hillary (I mean, the part about “close proximity”), but then I realized he was being serious: “So where does this leave Hillary Clinton? She seems to have as good a resume for the Commander in Chief job as any woman could have with her close proximity to power in the White House for eight years, her eight years as senator and four years as Secretary of State.” Now I don’t know which possibility is worse: a nasty joke or complete seriousness.
People do say the weirdest things about convicted pedophiles: “After all, in spite of whatever may have been true back then, they have made a life together now, and—in the absence of any evidence to the contrary—it really isn’t anyone’s place to suggest that this life is somehow tainted or “less than” because of their history.” This author has convinced himself that it is his place to tell people what is their place. And that’s extremely hypocritical.
