Get a Real Job

Via: Eater

Many thanks to Twitterer @FutureExBanker for sending in this receipt as evidence that “my jerk boss tips exactly 1%” because he “loathes the 99%.” (And here’s hoping that doing so doesn’t make him or her a current ex-banker.)

The jerk boss also thinks that Breanna, a server at True Food Kitchen in Newport Beach, California, maybe ought to “get a real job.”

Well, she might have to if assholes keep on leaving her $1.33 on $135 tickets. Condolences to Breanna the server.

The Sultan’s Elephant

The Sultan’s Elephant was a show created by the Royal de Luxe theatre company, involving a huge moving mechanical elephant, a giant marionette of a girl and other associated public art installations. In French it was called La visite du sultan des Indes sur son éléphant à voyager dans le temps (literally, “Visit From The Sultan Of The Indies On His Time-Travelling Elephant”).

The show was commissioned to commemorate the centenary of Jules Verne’s death, by the two French cities of Nantes and Amiens, funded by a special grant from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.

The show was performed at various locations around the world between 2005 and 2006.

Rick Sanitarium: Colleges Are ‘Indoctrination Mills’ That Evilly Enlighten The Young

Via: Wonkette

Santorum continued his Knowledge Is Evil Tour this week with a visit to husband Glenn Beck’s radio program, where he went the farthest he’s gone yet — no guarantees that by summer’s end he won’t be recommending locking children in a dungeon with a Bible, some water and breadsticks i.e. the body of Christ for 18 years — in condemning higher education as an expensive and frightening thing that sucks Christianity right out of us, even those of us who are not Christian but had the potential to be until big heavy textbooks whalloped us over the head.

Santorum, in this hour-long verbal makeout session, basically compared college to a factory, and cited some probably invented statistic that “62 percent of kids who go into college with a faith commitment leave without it,” which really is great news, if true.

Note: As the National Journal politely put it, Santorum “declined to cite a source for the figure.”

Anyway anyway, the worst thing about this is calling colleges “indoctrination mills.” INDOCTRINATION OF WHAT, PRAY TELL? A worldview? Ideas? Creativity? Awareness? Respect? Ambition? Keg stands? Sports? Dance parties?

“I understand why Barack Obama wants to send every kid to college, because of their indoctrination mills, absolutely … The indoctrination that is going on at the university level is a harm to our country.”

“Quote of the Day”

“I like the fact that most of the cars I see are Detroit-made automobiles. I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. ANN drives a COUPLE of CADILLACS actually (see photo). I used to have a Dodge pickup truck, so I used to have all three covered.”

-Willard Romney, but who else.
