That awkward moment when your dash is all "Happy...
I might have just reached the pinnacle in my disgust for the degrading quality of our society. Recently students at UC Davis were participating in a peaceful protest against the estimated hike in tuition costs in California which would likely end the post-secondary career of thousands of students. While sitting together on campus (doing nothing harmful or violent I would like to add) they were...
Militarization of Campus Police by Bob Ostertag ... →
alyson-noele: Yesterday, police at UC Davis attacked seated students with a chemical gas. I teach at UC Davis and I personally know many of the students who were the victims of this brutal and unprovoked assault. They are top students. In fact, I can report that among the students I know, the higher a student’s grade point average, the more likely it is that they are centrally involved in...
TSK: Humor makes a great defense mechanism
Cranquis: Well sir, the labs agree with what your friends and family have been guessing -- your frequent peeing, excess thirst, and weight loss were signs of high blood sugars.
Patient: So I have diabetes?
Cranquis: Yes, you do.
Patient: So what now?
Cranquis: Well I have some info and a prescription for you, and on your way out, the secretary will help you make an appointment with a primary doctor for tomorrow.
Patient: Ok, sweet.
Cranquis: Well... (trying not to point out the bad pun)
Patient: Oh man, I guess you could say TOO sweet!
Cranquis (now free to pun away): Ha! Yeah, and we'll make your appointment "tout de suite"!
Cranquis: Never mind.

When a child is aborted.
That child is not sad. That child is not angry. That child is not wondering what kind of life he could of lived. That child does not think, “Mother, why did you not love me? That child is not thinking at all. The only people it immediately affects, are the parents. It’s their decision, no one else’s. Not the government. Not yours. And not your God’s.
This is do or die.. I have to pass physics or else buh-bye med school.
Black Rhinos Are Now Extinct in Western Africa →
Two subspecies of rhinoceros have been declared extinct this month, highlighting the problem of poachers who kill the beasts only for their horns. The West African black rhino was officially wiped out as it has not been spotted in the wild since 2006, and none live in captivity. The Javan rhinoceros of Vietnam was declared extinct just a few weeks earlier. Read more.
the-mtblog: Jon Stewart took to The Daily Show last night to talk about the Penn State child sexual abuse scandal, and gave a serious commentary about how people knew of Sandusky’s abuse and didn’t do anything, as well as the recent student rioting over the firing of coach Joe Paterno.

Joe Paterno, Penn State football, and rape of all... →
nicksummers: The Jerry Sandusky indictment is SO horrible, with details about the rape of children, that I kind of think it trips a circuit breaker in our heads—obscuring the fact that Penn State football has a deep familiarity with rape of all kinds. How inured was Joe Paterno? I wrote this for the Daily Beast: Four years after Penn State head coach Joe Paterno was told that his longtime...
This weekend started off really shitty, like indescribably horrid. But between my boyfriend showing up with flowers when HE was mad at ME, getting my phone back, and seeing my dad truly happy for the very first time it has made quite the turn around. I forget sometimes that I have the ability to accomplish my goals, hopefully this optimism lasts because I really need it to pull through the rest...
