I’ve recently become fascinated by why tuition costs have risen so much in the last 30 years. I mean…it’s insane, and it doesn’t result in a better education. It turns out, for the most part, that it’s marketing. Universities spending money so that they look better than other universities so they get more and better students so that they can make more money (largely via student loans.)

Student loans mean well, and they’re vital. But the education industry has been economically incentivized by their easy access to raise prices and get more students paying more. Schools that don’t spend lots of money on luxury dorms and top notch sports programs don’t grow…kids don’t go to them because, effectively, it’s the same price for 18 year olds because the loans are available.

We should start a university that costs $3000 per year, but you have to sleep on a cot with six other people in the room. Like Hogwarts.

yeah, we got a lot at stake and in the end you’re still my friend.
At least we did intend for us to work.
We didn’t break, we didn’t burn.
We had to learn, how to bend, without the world, caving in.
I had to learn, what I’ve got and what I’m not and who I am.


All of this is still so relevant.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.


Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

I try to not get political with this blog (unless you count the charity stuff), but I’m PRETTY SURE we’re all on board with this Net Neutrality business, so I’m reblogging.





Daughter tells her Dad he’s going to be a Grandpa [x]

When he says “really” ;’)

Never leave this un-reblogged

What a dear human being he is.

The Biggest Loser dehumanizes their competitors and makes them engage in extremely unhealthy habits that were actually strongly discouraged by the doctors on set. Never ever ever ever use it as an example that "you can lose weight if you exercise and eat well!!!!" (which is a lie either way).

I think I’m being trolled by one of those people who think that being fat is a genetic issue, like having brown eyes or blonde hair?

Pretty sure that’s the case, and that anyone who agrees with this anon is a fucking moron. (agreeing here to imply that being overweight is something that is genetic and you can do nothing about, not that the biggest loser is a bad example).

You can catch more flies with honey than you can bears. Bears don’t actually like honey, that’s a stereotype and they will attack you if they realize how ignorant you are.
