I literally just went from aw to wtf.


there was this big uproar over a character from paranormal being gay, so what do they do? next movie, they make a commercial that THROWS THE GAY IN YOUR FACE. They’re literally not being subtle at all about their queer representation and I fucking love them for it

Throw the gay in your face is perhaps the best thing I’ve heard all week.

“I guess your grades are more important to you than your morals are,” my English teacher spits out, lecturing our class about cheating that’s been going on in the school.

My classmates and I exchange glances. Well, yeah, we all seem to be thinking together. Isn’t that what they’ve been showing us since middle school?

#also that our grades are more important #than ourselves.

and our mental and physical health.

Real Time with Bill Maher: 6.6.14 — Anthony Weiner, Jim Geraghety, Nicolle Wallace


Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.

It’s a miracle!

That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.

That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.

It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.

And we’ll be hearing more from the woman on the right side in the picture, because she (Nicolle Wallace) is now one of The View's new co-hosts, along with comedienne Rosie Perez, comedienne Rosie O'Donnell, and comedienne Whoopi Goldberg.

Tell me how I (as a student with a 3.8 GPA) can read the entire text, all of the power points, watch all of the videos, and participate beyond the minimum requirements for the class discussions & wind up with a C in the class?

This type of grading is exactly why people (myself included) get so frustrated with the American education system. This type of frustration is why I transferred from the University of Wisconsin in Madison to Arizona State University and have thoroughly enjoyed my education at ASU more than I ever did at UW Madison. When my focus on the class shifts from learning and critically thinking/applying class material to solely focusing on the grade average: THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG. I am going to school to LEARN and become a well-rounded professional. When my love for learning in this field is being trampled by anxiety over a grade THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG. I have never had to email a professor about a TA’s grading, but when I can go through every question on the exam and back up my answer with pages in the text, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG with the exam and the grading!
