Another visit to Hodge Podge Lodge

No real cohesive theme to today's post.  Just another set of ramblings.

Do students care less today than yesterday?  I understand that is debatable, but from my experience in my set of six 7th grade classes today, I would have to answer in the affirmative.  They get away with more than we did "back in the day" and there was more pressure to succeed when I was in 7th grade.  We've given up on them, why shouldn't they give up on the world?  The things we'll do for a paycheck.  Discuss.

There is a light out in the grimy 2nd floor bathroom of my day job's workplace.  It flickers like a bug zapper devouring moths.  I don't want them to change out the bulb.  It might make others depressed, but the dingy, urban conditions paired with the strobing light remind me of Blade Runner.  Makes me a happier worker.

Went to order Richard Dolan's new book, AD: After Disclosure.  It is entirely unavailable on Amazon and they don't know when they will be able to restock.
Conspiracy or shipping error?  Discuss.

Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, Jan Brewer, Christine O'Donnell.  Might want to get acquainted with those names for if the political zeitgeist does not change, these people will be running the show in a few brief months.  After all, our President will offer little resistance it seems.  The implications of such a transition go far beyond the political.  They actually stab into the territory of UFO researchers.
Fundies don't like aliens.  They imply a greater reality than the narrow box they are accustomed to and they knock down humanity's place in the reverse.  After all, if they are racist towards Muslims, how would they be towards a race that is completely...well...alien?  Check out this video of Pat Robertson, fundie poster boy, calling UFO occupants "demons."  I wish it were an Onion bit, but it's not.

Speaking of The Onion, "America's Finest News Source" is reporting that 1 in 5 Americans believe that President Obama is a cactus. 

Let me lighten things up a bit.  Here are the Top Ten Hottest Costumes for Girl Geeks (that are not Slave Leia).
Enjoy!
