Real friendship is when your friend comes over to your house and then you both just take a nap.
Thoughts from a new semester: first years are terrible. They pack up ten minutes early and start talking at a decibel that no prof could ever hope...
When it comes down to the choice between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, we are a nation divided, and many people will go to bed disappointed tomorrow night.
But no matter who wins on Election Day, we should remember this:
- If Mitt Romney or Barack Obama win, the increasing luminosity from our Sun will ensure that our oceans boil away and life as we know it will likely cease to exist on Earth within about 1.5 billion years from November 6th, 2012.
- If Mitt Romney or Barack Obama win, the expansion of the Sun into a red giant will engulf the Earth in a fiery planetary death within about 7.9 billion years.
- If Mitt Romney or Barack Obama win, within about 120 trillion years all of the consumable hydrogen in the universe will be gone and the stars will all be extinguished.
I’m just saying … we know who would be better for science. But if your guy doesn’t win?
Life will go on.
For a little while, at least.
Republican presidential candidate RICK SANTORUM, on Sunday’s Meet The Press.
No seriously. This guy is a fucking dick.
The thing is, Santorum actually believes this. But in his defense, I can understand his self interest in ensuring fewer people go to college and become educated; he does have a voter base he needs to cultivate, after all.
