YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO FORGIVE ME FOR MY HORRID VOICE, I THINK I’M SICK AS WELL AS INCAPABLE OF SINGING OTL
INTRO: Blog and follow. Blog and I just reblog and follow. Blog. Blog.
HOOK: I reblog and follow. I reblog-blog-blog-blog-blog and follow. And I ‘like’ a lot of posts from the blogs I follow like there’s no tomorrow. If I smile at your posts then I’m bound to follow.
This is tumbl-tumbl, tumbl-tumbl, tumblr. Tumbl-tumbl, this is tumblr. This ain’t just another, just another, site where you posts a bunch of statuses that no one really cares for.
VERSE ONE: If I say I like your blog it means I honestly do, even if you spaz on idols which is probably true [OMG!]. Cuz I do that with them popstars. Take ‘em. Ship ‘em. See I let out the fanboy in me, too.
But sometimes though, I spaz on posts, my followers unfollow but they just don’t know. Wanna leave, huh? I don’t need’ja. Cuz I’mma still be ‘FOLLOW’-ED like a MOVIE STAR.
I’m all about my bias no one’s comin’ between us. If anybody’s tryin’ to, then I get meaner. Yeah, I get meaner. Cuz they’re with me, bruh. My bias and myself make up my OTP.
You hate me? Just unfollow. Cuz I ain’t even mad, bro. But leave my blog alone, cuz for all the blogs I’m really feelin’, this is what I’m gon’ do.
THIS IS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY AND YOUR VOICE OH MY GODD
THIS IS THE BEST PARODY I’VE HEARD IN MY LIFE OH MY GOD
You’ve been criticized a lot since you published your memoir, “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.” One problem is that some people don’t get your humor. They think you’re serious about all this, and they assume Lulu and I are oppressed by our evil mother. That is so not true. Every other Thursday, you take off our chains and let us play math games in the basement.
But for real, it’s not their fault. No outsider can know what our family is really like. They don’t hear us cracking up over each other’s jokes. They don’t see us eating our hamburgers with fried rice. They don’t know how much fun we have when the six of us — dogs included — squeeze into one bed and argue about what movies to download from Netflix.
I admit it: Having you as a mother was no tea party. There were some play dates I wish I’d gone to and some piano camps I wish I’d skipped. But now that I’m 18 and about to leave the tiger den, I’m glad you and Daddy raised me the way you did. Here’s why.
I can’t even with this Amy Chua lady. Her backpedaling at this point is pretty laughable.
1) She graduated magna cum laude. Can’t even make summa cum laude? By her standards, I’d call her a failure, wouldn’t you? *insert eyeroll here*
2) I have strict Asian parents too. I am doing pretty well for myself too: I am going to an Ivy League GRADUATE school. Difference is, my parents raised me. They did not manufacture me out of some sense of guanxi gone horribly wrong.
3) Sophia…child, you are 18. The road is long. Stay humble. Your essay is pre-mature. Come back when you are 40, rail off on your accomplishments then, and maybe I will listen.
Music, an abstract stimulus, can arouse feelings of euphoria and craving, similar to tangible rewards that involve the striatal dopaminergic system. Using the neurochemical specificity of [11C]raclopride positron emission tomography scanning, combined with psychophysiological measures of autonomic nervous system activity, we found endogenous dopamine release in the striatum at peak emotional arousal during music listening. To examine the time course of dopamine release, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging with the same stimuli and listeners, and found a functional dissociation: the caudate was more involved during the anticipation and the nucleus accumbens was more involved during the experience of peak emotional responses to music. These results indicate that intense pleasure in response to music can lead to dopamine release in the striatal system. Notably, the anticipation of an abstract reward can result in dopamine release in an anatomical pathway distinct from that associated with the peak pleasure itself. Our results help to explain why music is of such high value across all human societies.
The fact is that there are very few jobs that require a college degree. the vast majority of jobs could be done with a high school education and some specialized training. However, the oft repeated notion “college = a good job” got interpreted to mean that the way to increase people’s earning potential was to provide a college education to more people.
So now we subsidize college education for students who really have no business being in college. The result has been an endless list of useless “____ studies” degree programs that cater to the lowest common denominator created for no other reason than to meet the inflated demand for a degree.
The inevitable result is that you have thousands upon thousands of marginally educated twenty-somethings who honestly believe that they are over-qualified for most of the jobs out there. Anything less than a management-track position is beneath them and so they sit in their parents basement playing Xbox waiting for the business world to recognize their value.

This thread at Student Doctor Network forums is one of the most interesting things I’ve read on the internet in a long time. If trends in education and potential oversaturation of certain job markets pique your interest, I recommend checking out this exchange of viewpoints, even if you’re not in any of the mentioned fields.
This year JULY has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So Copy this to your status and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui, the one who does not copy, will be without money. Figured I'd pass this on!!
Biological evolution does not address the origin of life; for that, see abiogenesis. The two are commonly and mistakenly conflated. The theory of evolution explains the changes in successive generations of organisms, due to differences in genes and gene frequencies that occur in populations of living organisms over time. Thus evolution presupposes that life already exists. Biological evolution likewise says nothing about cosmology, the Big Bang, or the origins of the universe.
Evolution does not claim humans evolved from monkeys,chimpanzees or any other modern-day primates. Instead, fossil evidence has shown that humans and monkeys share a common ancestor that lived about 40 million years ago. This common ancestor diverged into separate lineages, one evolving into so-called New World monkeys and the other into Old World monkeys, apes, and humans. Similarly, the common ancestor of humans and chimpanzees, which lived between 5 and 8 million years ago, evolved into two lineages, one eventually becoming modern humans and the other splitting again into chimpanzees and bonobos. Thus, one cannot consider any present-day monkeys or apes as reflecting how humans “used to look” or behave. All extant animal groups have evolved over the same amount of time.
It is a common misconception even among adults that humans and dinosaurs (in the ordinary sense of the term) coexisted. According to the California Academy of Sciences, around 41% of U.S. adults mistakenly believe they co-existed. The last of the dinosaurs died around 65 million years ago, after the Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event, whereas the earliest Homo genus (humans) evolved between 2.3 and 2.4 million years ago.
