I wish to live symbiotically with ticks, mosquitos, spirochetes.. To know the strength of my immunity and the harmony that is our relation so fierce that I hardly flinch at the sight of a feeding.. but rather gladly give my blood in love. I trust there is a way<3

Both parties benefit in a symbiotic relationship - this is parasite/host.

That video is truly fantastic.

It is also, unfortunately, just about the only video of prince playing the guitar that you can find on the internet.

Too bad there are no videos of Prince balling on the basketball court. All we have is Charlie Murphy's story of how good Prince was.

I'm lucky to have some musician/performer friends, because it allows me to pretend I'm cooler and more talented than I am. But on days like this it comes back to haunt me.

 

Maybe I should switch from making that filter for whatever place that isn't here had the deadly earthquake and switch to a purple filter...

Does anybody really believe teachers are working 70-100 hour weeks on average? I don't want to discount the difficulty of the job too much, but come on. The first couple years are rough while you get your feet under you and build lessons, but the time requirements go way down after that unless you want to be a martyr and pour all the extra time in.


They also get a ton of time without students during the school year. Just counted for my hometown school system, 29 vacation or teacher planning days on top of summer vacation, plus about a dozen half days. There are only around 180 actual school days if you add it all up.

Yeah, that poster is stupid and dishonest, starting from the initial premise. The "standard" 8-hour work day is not actually comprised of 8 hours of classroom teaching for any teacher I know (including the teachers at any of the schools, both public and private, my kid has attended in the last ten years). It includes free periods and after-class time for meeting with and helping students, etc. Even with new math you don't get to double-count hours like that.

As a lawyer, you're telling me you don't double count hours?  Oh wait... you're in-house.

That's such a fucking joke.

I fully expected to be Rick Rolled, but you sir, took the high road.

I usually enjoy Mya Rudolph but I wanted to punch her in this video.

Okay, now if some of you remember, I've posted that Prince video of the Harrison tribute here two or three times in the last several years. It clearly showed his musicality and star power at it's brightest. I am now officially tired of every second person referring to that video at this point. Please tell the truth: you only became aware of the video as it's gone viral since his death.

Man, I've been posting that video on the internet since before I came to SF (not that exact video since it was posted in 2012...probably some other version that got taken down).
