iOS 8 Keyboard Makes Hilarious ‘Mad Libs’ For You - Personal Tech News - WSJ
Best iOS 8 QuickType sentence chain, only choosing the middle option. Go. "Please don't make it a lot of fun to use it for a few weeks of school tomorrow and I'm still not sure what the actual number one in a while ago but the fact I can get it right away with the best of the day before I get a follow back on my way home from work to be the first half of the day before I get a follow back on my way home..." It got stuck in a loop...

Glorious. “I don’t eat white flour, so I tried making it with raw almonds that I’d activated by chewing them with my mouth open to receive direct sunlight, and it turned out terrible. This recipe is terrible.”

All the Money
"As it collapses, the pile spreads outward, a wave of money carrying a staggering amount of momentum. The pennies, quarters, loonies, and euros scour the landscape in an expanding ring. Within seconds, the wave of coins engulfs you and you die."

Political science meeting interrupted by hotel fire @insidehighered
So this happened this morning. Good thing I decided to be lazy and not trek up to a 7:30 panel at the Marriott. My bed at the Hilton was far more comfortable and smoke free.

Othering, Ebola and the history and politics of pointing at immigrants as potential disease vectors - The Washington Post
"The long history of associating immigrants and disease in America and the problematic impact that has on attitudes toward immigrants should make us sensitive to the impact of “othering” African immigrants to the United States in the midst of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Scare-mongering about infinitesimally small risks in one context serves no purpose to the greater good of trying to curb disease transmission and relieve people’s suffering in another context."

Poll: Most Americans Want to Criminalize Pre-Teens Playing Unsupervised - Reason.com
Blergh. "A whopping 68 percent of Americans think there should be a law that prohibits kids 9 and under from playing at the park unsupervised, despite the fact that most of them no doubt grew up doing just that. What's more: 43 percent feel the same way about 12-year-olds. They would like to criminalize all pre-teenagers playing outside on their own (and, I guess, arrest their no-good parents)."

How ‘Harry Potter’ shaped the political culture of a generation - The Washington Post
"I found empirical support for the idea that the “Harry Potter” series influenced the political values and perspectives of the generation that came of age with these books. Reading the books correlated with greater levels of acceptance for out-groups, higher political tolerance, less predisposition to authoritarianism, greater support for equality and greater opposition to the use of violence and torture. As “Harry Potter” fans will have noted, these are major themes repeated throughout the series. These correlations remained significant even when applying more sophisticated statistical analyses – when controlling for, among other things, parental influence."

Syria Comment » Archives The Expulsion of Mosul’s Christians, part 1: The Account of the Kidnapped Nuns » Syria Comment
Insane account of kidnapped nuns in Mosul, plus a hilarious jihad moment… "Beginning on the first day, a Tunisian fighter began visiting them and pressuring them about religion. He tried to make the nuns change out of their distinctly Christian religious habits and wear common clothes instead. They resisted this demand. He repeatedly attacked their religion, telling them that their beliefs were wrong, and the nuns were frequently drawn into arguments with him. He told them that they didn’t know God, called them kufaar, and would shout “Don’t show me your crosses! I don’t want to see your crosses!” (They wore crosses around their necks.) Despite the harassment of the Tunisian jihadist, the same Iraqi that had participated in their abduction came, and in what must be one of the “funniest-jihad-moments-ever,” comforted them, saying, “Don’t worry about this guy; he’s a suicide bomber and he’ll be gone soon anyway.”" (via Ben Crowder)
