Oh, the Irony

I went to the library at the University of Arizona and saw the banned books display featuring the VHS of Fahrenheit 451. How appropriate.

Captcha, bitches!

I just filled out a CAPTCHA that said "Spaniel Nutting." I think this sounds like the name of a very, very mediocre British novelist from the Victorian era.

Grad School is so granola

Today I was given an organic lollipop by another student for answering a question correctly. I then realized that an organic lollipop is about as absurd as free range marshmallows, and then I realized that marshmallows come from pigs so that its really not that ridiculous after all.

360 Degrees of Fun

I wonder if people ever wonder about how ironic the word "revolution" is to use for the purpose of progress.


Ok, so I joined Twitter to follow some friends. I thought it was going to be minute by minute updates of their lives (hence the narcissistic tool part) but its really just like facebook statuses. Still pretty redundant though.

World War What?

World War II officially started 70 years ago today, when Germany invaded Poland.

Japan invaded China on July 7th, 1937, two years before Germany invaded Poland.

The war ended when Japan surrendered.

And Columbus discovered America. I swear.

Grad School Fact #1

Next time someone tells you that getting a Ph.D. means you aren't a "real doctor" politely remind them that Ph.D.'s are often the one's telling the M.D.'s what they can and can't pull out of and put into your body.
