Funny Or Sad?

So the recent post at BB about giraffe fighting inspired me to go look up this footage of koalas fighting. The thing is that in all the footage of koalas fighting the entire croud is laughing out loud. I think that if I were the koalas I'd be pissed if everyone found my attempts at being frightening humorous.

I Got A Job!

How about that. After almost 14 (glorious) months of unemployment, I'm back in the workforce. I start Friday at a place called Grassroots Campaigns. It is an organization that facilitates grassroots movements for progressive causes. I saw their ad in Craig's List yesterday, called them, interviewed and was hired today. I will be a "Field Manager" with the potential to be a "Director." I'm still working out what all of this means but basically I'll be in charge of a team of canvassers. Sounds like fun. I'm a bit nervous but I'm sure I can do it. It is exciting to get a job where I get to work for causes that I care about. Right now we are canvassing for the ACLU. Ok, that is all, wish me luck.

So, Harvard Does Suck

I found this after looking into a post on Boing Boing today. Apparently, they were inspired by this group of real American heroes from Yale. Check it:

Tragically, the high schoolers inspired by this prank (see top link) were given in school suspension instead of the Medals of Freedom they truly deserve.

In truth, this prank, which was pulled in 2004 was not the first time the idea was used, but it was well done. The first time it was done by Cal Tech students during the Rose Bowl between Washington and Minnesota national TV.


Chicago Public Transit Blows

I will probably speak more on this topic later but for now, this was a sidebar at the CTA site:

Holy Shit, I'm in a Band!

Introducing: The Square Roots. I guess you might say that we're still a little rough around the edges, but I think we're good enough to make prime time on most college radio stations. Check out the hot single, Jungle Fever, here.
