We’re sure many of you noticed, but we completely dropped the ball on Free Tee Friday last week. In order to make it up to all of you lovely people, we’re going to do a Free Tee Monday AND a Free Tee Friday this week.
So you know the drill, reblog this post for a chance to win this tee in your size! Good luck!
Ends 4/12, 10AM
We must be swift as the coursing river
With all the force of a great typhoon
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon
I came up with this 5 months ago LOL! Click through the photo for the video I made about it! (warning: the video sucks). These picture ARE epic though I must admit..
Terrifying Sculptures by Mark Jenkins
Imagine walking around the corner and seeing one of these. American artist Mark Jenkins is fond of installing sculptures in public that hurtle you screaming into the uncanny valley.
Wow these are pretty intense. *Side note: that last one is DEFINITELY FitRec at Boston University I know it! (Which is crazy because one of them is definitely in Europe because of the license plates..)
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little..
The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that.
Remember, there IS a test coming up. The 2012 elections…
These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
DEAR WORLD, Internet service providers will begin spying on you!
This is not just the USA, this is also Europe, UK, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and more.
ACTA is another attempt by Hollywood and others to end privacy and freedom to protect their profits.
These well done videos provide an overview:
We got to stop this!
USA, reblog this post. Make new posts. Join the EFF. Stay involved.
They won’t give up, and neither will we.
I’m going to keep spamming ACTA posts. It’s just so important. I can’t even…
