As many of you know, I recently purchased an Uruk-Hai scimitar.

zohbugg:

Well let me tell you, it was quite the pragmatic purchase. It has endless uses in my morning routine.

Such as making the bed:

Making toast:

Getting things off high shelves:

Making coffee:

Reaching the remote when it’s too far away:

And assisting me when I ran out of toilet paper:

I don’t know how I survived life without it.

John F. Kennedy on civil rights

And that’s why they killed him, because he cared and he was going to make changes.

and yet the changes happened: civil rights act of 1965

And yet people are still fighting for civil rights in 2014

"College as explained to me in high school" vs. "College as experienced firsthand"

In high school they told us: There will be no grades in a class except the midterm and the final, so you have to study hard because failing one test means you fail the class.
Once I was in college a professor said: Hey, you guys are working really hard on your third paper, so I'm just going to cancel the final and give everyone a hundred on it.
In high school they told us: In college, class always begins exactly at the scheduled start time. If your class is at 9 AM and you get there at 9:01, the doors will be locked and you'll be out of luck, especially if it's the day of the midterm or final, because then you get a zero.
Once I was in college a professor said: Does anyone mind if I start class at 3:35 instead of 3:30? These elevators are really slow and I want to have time for a cigarette before I teach for 90 minutes.
In high school they told us: Every class you miss drops you a full letter grade in college courses.
Once I was in college almost every professor said: You can miss three classes without a penalty, and a few more if you have a Doctor's note. Sorry to be a hardass, but you automatically fail if you miss more than ten days of class.
In high school they told us: If you do have papers, your professors just lecture and put the assignments on the syllabus. You're completely responsible for remembering the deadlines, they won't remind you. All your professors will do is lecture and the rest is up to you.
Once I was in college a professor said: Okay, so your next paper is in two weeks! I'll keep reminding you in the interim, but I just want to make sure you have enough time to do it! Let's run through the structure I want to see real quick, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or come to my office hours!
In high school they told us: You have to use MLA formatting and if you make any mistakes in your citations, it'll be considered plagiarism. You'll be expelled and probably sued.
Once I was in college almost every professor said: Please do not use MLA, it is awful, we use either APA or Chicago here because we are not 14 years old.

This was first posted at my webcomic, cakeburger.com. Check it out. 

This is a press release in the form of a comic I did for my friend Lee. Who wrote an entire music notation programwith his voice and feet, while in agony. I still have trouble believing it. But it really is true.

Background: A few months ago, Lee asked if I could edit a press release he was planning on sending round for the release of the premium (paid) version of his free music notation program. He’s a friend of the family – my brother designed the Musink icon and website. I said sure.  I didn’t need to edit much – the press release was already pretty much fine, but I wondered if we could do it in a way that would really get the attention Lee’s story (and his software) deserve. So, seeing as my comic book CV had got a bit of attention back when I first sent it out, I thought I’d try doing his story as a comic.

Anyway, if you’re a musician, I strongly recommend you check out Musink. If you’re not – please help Lee by sharing this comic far and wide. Lee went through hell and still managed to code a massive program. With his feet. The fact that it’s a bloody decent program is a side benefit, as is the fact that Lee is a bloody decent guy. I’m proud to call him a friend, and I hope I can help him out by doing whatever I can towards seeing his app get the attention it deserves.

The government wouldn’t spend a dime on education, healthy food, drinkable water, assisting people in poverty, de-polluting the streets, or anything else of importance. But they would be on call to spend millions on equipping a small police force to fight off a group of defenseless protestors. You can argue with me that this is not a hate crime, when it so obviously is, but you can’t argue with me when I say that this government is too corrupt to even serve it’s purpose.
