And now for something completely different...

You know a snowball fight is serious when the cops respond with pepper balls.

(It's a DM link, so autoplay is involved.)

We’ve been doing this a lot lately. Page two-ing, I mean.

I should charge extra.

Spiny Norman

Is your circle of internet fans growing, or are we regulars just getting more... chatty?

I should charge extra.

On the contrary, in economics, increased output usually leads to lower prices. I patiently await my refund.

Yes, and yes.

I patiently await my refund.

I’m sorry, I can’t hear you above the noise of the crowd.

Huh!
David's offering excuses now, instead of credit notes.
Wtf?

Another day on campus, another struggle session.

Another day on campus, another struggle session.

I’m now processing the thought that there are professors of journalism, at Columbia, who teach “courses on hip-hop” - because that’s a cornerstone of journalism, apparently - while tiptoeing around the word in question, which is, they admit, “ubiquitous” in hip-hop.

It’s some dance they do, our betters.

Another day on campus, another struggle session.

The $64,000 question is why the hell a "professor of history and medieval studies" is pushing James Baldwin, even though I realize the 1960s are ancient history to the current crop of students (and I use the term loosely).

Then, he said, several nonenrolled students attended the next class session, saying they were there to observe, as leaders within the honors program. Students in the class then asked Adamo to leave to discuss the situation.

Why, other than being a cheesedick*, he didn't tell the students, particularly the non-enrolled ones, to shut it and bugger off is the next question.


*("He then went on medical leave due to stress." Mystery solved)

The prof thought he was Radical Chic with his readings from James Baldwin and Ta-Genius Coates, but he ended up reenacting Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, with himself in the most humiliating role.

He's reaping what he's sowed. He tried to strike a blow against Badwhites, and he ends up getting it good and hard himself.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augsburg_University

Augsburg University is a private liberal arts college in Minneapolis, Minnesota that is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Upon its founding in 1869, it was a Norwegian-American Lutheran seminary known as Augsburg Seminarium. ... It was named after the Augsburg Confession of 1530, the primary confession of faith presented by Lutherans in Augsburg, Germany in and contained in the Book of Concord of 1580.

The Scandinavians who built Minnesota were hard men who weren't intimidated by an Arctic winter or a burning at the stake. Their descendants, unfortunately, have developed the same naivety and ethnomasochism as their cousins from the old country.

Augsburg continues to reflect the commitment and dedication of the founders who believed an Augsburg education should be preparation for service in community and church. Providing an education grounded in vocational calling, that provides students both the theoretical learning and the practical experience to succeed in a global, diverse world.

In the middle of layoffs, Buzzfeed brings hard hitting journalism.

I clicked that link and literally laughed out loud. Damn.
