I fucking hate game night with the engineering graduates

Don’t get me started on Poker Night with the math students. 

Monopoly with business majors is the fucking worst

Scrabble with english majors is a nightmare.

i can’t believe those weren’t puns

Don’t forget Pictionary with Art Students.

Words against humanity with sociologist and poli sci students is horrifying

PLAY CLUE WITH INVESTIGATIVE LAW MAJORS AND THEN COME TALK TO ME


Operation with a surgeon…

On the other hand, Rock Band with the music majors is beautiful.

Radioactive (Music Box Version) - Imagine Dragons

by JoshuaSaundersMusic

Well that took me 0.01 seconds to reblog

I imagine this playing in a brutal fight scene, explosions everywhere, smoke and debris flying in slow motion, while the bots charge into battle in absolute horror of what is happening.

This sounds so sad…

I imagine a family getting ready for bed. The kids look over-tired as their parent puts them to bed, humming this song. They continue humming softly as they lock up the house, pour a glass of wine to share with their partner. Slowly, this song syncs up to where they’re humming, growing louder and the camera pans around the house. Something’s off, but you can’t put your finger on it.

The glasses of wine sit empty on the coffee table. One of the parents opens the curtains to look out the window. You see the barren landscape, the explosion in the distance. They close their eyes, close the curtains. The song ends, the screen goes black.

Alternately:

The group fleeing from zombies find a safe house. As they look around, they realize that this house was not evacuated before the war broke out. There are scattered stuffed animals and dolls in the nursery, and glimpses of the remnants of the the previous inhabitants. As they check the house for danger, survivors and supplies, flashbacks of life in the house flicker on screen as this plays.

These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

Journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

The Brain Scoop:
Sharks Sharks Sharks & More Sharks

I think it’s safe to say most people conjure up a picture of the great white when they think of sharks as a whole, which is a total shame since there are more than 440 known and described species of sharks and the diversity of those is impressive to say the least. 

There are 12 living Orders of sharks, cartilaginous fish that fall into the subclass Elasmobranchii. Some sharks have beards. Some sharks are electric. Some have poisonous skin. And they are all 100% awesome. 

Check out our last video from five consecutive calendar days dedicated to cartilaginous fishes - we hope you enjoyed the inundation of videos last week, and that our 19 minutes of programming proved to be a good alternative to sensationalism and mistruths. 

Duh-duh.

Duh-duh.

Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh….

- Mike

P.S. I was singing the JAWS theme, not saying, “Duh, y’all did know sharks are electric?” Obvz.

International hacker group Anonymous claims to have obtained audio files of police dispatch and EMS during the Mike Brown shooting.
They have said it will be released at 2:00pm ET

Wow

Good.

UPDATED skip to around 9:35, they are asking for crowd control, at 11:20 they found out from the news, not the police. listen around 21:25 for request for more cars, it’s a very long video (apx 2 hours) so you only get a little information at a time, so far what people have heard and gathered is that they called for more cars and crowd control long before they called an EMT

Necessary.

I signed a change.org petition asking that this, among other necessary policies be made mandatory by federal law. FUCKING SIGN IT.

well would you look at that…

I think this will happen…many police unions do not want it to happen, but I think it will happen. It will take a lot of time and a lot of fighting, but every moment of that fight is going to be worth it. 
Police unions will want more research, I think that’s important, and that research is being done now. While use of force and number of complaints are important statistics, so is overall crime rate (which unions will argue is adversely affected (because officers are thinking about how they’ll look on camera, not how to do their jobs) unless there are overwhelming data to counter that claim).
Also vitally important will be whether these save police departments money (which they probably will, in reduced complaints and simpler court cases.) 
And let’s not forget about privacy…if these videos are being uploaded to cloud-based evidence systems (which they probably will be) who is going to have access to them? What do you do with videos that have nothing to do with active cases? How long are videos stored for? How do you protect that data? Who decides when the cameras are on or off (civil rights orgs (and I) will argue that they must be always-on, police officers will say “what about when I’m peeing.”) And, if there’s an off switch, we can assume the off switch will get used at the exact time when we will have wanted it to be on.
As I say, this is coming, and it’s important, and it will be a force that runs counter to a lot of the bullshit police work that’s being done in some places in America…but the areas where it’s most vital will be the ones where it arrives last.
And, unfortunately, the federal government will never be able to make a blanket law because congress can’t even agree if flowers are pretty.
This is going to have to be a battle fought in every city in America individually, don’t let that drain your will. Yes, it would be better if it just happened tomorrow, but it will be worse if we all get lazy and say “it’s not happening the way I want so I don’t care if it happens at all.” 
Fuck that…we need do make it happen whatever way we can, even if it takes a long-ass time. 
Sincerely,An Old Guy
