Dear Readers: In the process of working up some fun posts, I cam across a few items so flaming hot they had to be shared.
1) KLINGON STYLE (Star Trek Parody of PSY – GANGNAM STYLE)
2) This is the short of thing that’s making me want to direct the Young Prince to Trade School:
A political science professor at Butler University asks students to disregard their “American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status” when writing and speaking in the classroom – a practice the school’s arts and sciences dean defended as a way to negate students’ inherent prejudices.
The one saving grace is my son is a scientist at heart: I never heard of a RedOx equation needing to disregard race or sex before balancing.
3) And from the heart of crazy California’s Pot Country (a BIG THANKS to Captain Capitalism for the share): College launches research institute devoted to pot
The Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research at Humboldt State University plans to sponsor scholarly lectures and coordinate research among 11 faculty members from fields such as economics, geography, politics, psychology and sociology.
The Times-Standard of Eureka reports (http://bit.ly/V5H8zy) that one professor is studying recent campaigns to legalize marijuana, while another is investigating the environmental effects of pot cultivation.
“If anyone is going to have a marijuana institute, it really should be Humboldt State,” economist Erick Eschker, the institute’s co-chair, told the newspaper. Eschker is studying the connection between marijuana production and employment in the county.
With Obama re-elected and California Democrats having a super-majority with Governor Jerry Brown in charge, perhaps some mind-altering substances are in order to make the next 4 years survivable.
Of course, Legal Insurrection’s Professor Jacobson has a thing or two to say about the kind of kids who are likely to attend that school: Call that part of that generation’s bluff
…we should call that entire generation’s bluff.
You’re out of here, get a job — even one Americans supposedly don’t want to take, see you at holidays, don’t call us we’ll call you, to what address should we forward your student loan notices, call your gender studies professor for help, you just figured out the B.A. is the new G.E.D., can you see the fiscal cliff from your loft bed, you too can experience an Obamaphone because your iPhone 5 with 4G isn’t actually your iPhone 5 with 4G it’s on my Plan ….
A few SLOB items to note:

Around the Net with some friends:
I also wanted to give a GODDESS OF CAPITALISM – FLAMING CAPITALISM PROMOTION to 2 specific websites. If you adore the Goddess, then do her bidding: If you plan to shop for the holidays at Amazon.com, then go though either of these sites (their profits become my profits).
LEGAL INSURRECTION – A big thanks to Bill Jacobson for his support, observations, editing and wit. Please check out my new post on Legal Insurrection — and click on the Amazon link to the right!!!
CAPTAIN CAPITALISM: A big, big thank you to Aaron Clarey — who kindly links to my history based posts (otherwise, they may have languished in electronic oblivion) . I am a big fan of his book, “Worthless (Indispensable Guide to Choosing the Right College Major“, and will join his
haremteam of female editors for his newest publishing endeavor.
