The Wonders of a Modern Education

I've been in and around colleges and universities off and on for 20 years. While this is certainly amongst the more crazy lecturers I've seen, I can say that yes, things are indeed getting this bad. This is especially true regards China/ Mao et al.

This is not below the fold because it's history.


Note the applause...

OK, actually it's the evil opposite of history but hey...

Via Legal Insurrection which has compiled some interesting related links.

This is closely related. It's deeply troubling and fairly accurate.

 


In my limited experience, it tends to be almost exclusively older professors (a rapidly dwindling demographic), or some of those from abroad that occasionally buck this trend, and they do so at their peril.


UPDATE: For those who did not look at the 3 minute video, it's a professor adamantly denying that Joe Stalin killed anybody.

2012 First Election Results

Dixville Notch, a town in New Hampshire traditionally opens the polls at 12:01 on election day. As the town has less than 20 people they certify their vote early. They've been an accurate predictor in the past every single year since...um...2000.

Anyway they're the first polling location to have certified results as of a few minutes ago and the result was...A TIE!




I think we can all reach a bipartisan consensus that as omens go, this is a bad one.

UPDATE: Oh yeah...a prediction.

I hear that from time to time. As some of you know I'm in college. So on those occasions I allow myself, either be accident or design to by "outed" as to my political leanings I frequently get words to that effect.


"Oh you have got to be squidding me! He's carping about pollacktics again. Thank Cod this election season is fin-ally over"

I'll Just Leave This Here


It's just 36 seconds.
Compare and contrast.
The election Tuesday is rather more important than most.
