Plagiarism and my meanie husband
me: Someone plagiarized on a REFLECTION paper! they copied right out of wikipedia. it's just silly.
Joe: Ha! Threaten to kick him out of school! See if you can make him cry
me: yeah, we'll see. I just emailed ... for advice but I'm just inclined to give the student a 0 on the assignment and be done with it
Joe: No No NO! you have to call him to a meeting
me: well of course I'll let her know it's unacceptable but I'm not going to let her cry
Joe: then go on discusing with someone athoratative about whether he should get a zero or fail the class...or even kick him out of the school.get her to cry!
me: :-P I think I'll go with whatever my advisors say :-P
Joe: THis is a great opportunity! don't let it pass you by. you could make a grown person cry
me: No, I've done it, it's not fun
Joe: come on!
me: No. :-P
Joe: you're no fun
me: Oh my
Joe: MAKE HER CRY!!!!

Where do you see yourself 15 years down the line? In 15 years, I’ll be about to turn 39. My career is difficult to imagine right now, as I feel completely lost on what I’ll do if I can’t even get down to work on my thesis right now. Will I even finish my grad program? No, the only thing I can think of is that I’d like to have gotten my family going-...
Can you give birth while doing pairs figure skating and can the baby come out while doing a triple sow cow and then cut the umbilical cord with the blade of the skate? Oh God!

Nurture OVER nature
I just taught about this in my class this week, in regards to why humans engage in aggression, fighting, killing, and eventually, war.

I believe that the way we socialize our children has a huge effect on how acceptable they see war. As Shimko, our author, noted, murdering...

Perhaps it’s due to the fact that most of the Academy is in their 30s or older, or perhaps it’s due to the fact that everyone in Hollywood kowtows to James Cameron. Look,...
