Ancient Technology Tuesday, Take Two

Employees of Oregon Beer Snob Enterprises®© LOL, LLC will not further discuss any appearances by employees at computer camp in the summer of '84 and will also not discuss or fondly remember sexy shenanigans between young beersnobs and female(s) of the nerdy kind at said camp.

Also: youth is wasted on the young.

Funny Face Friday

The good Mr. Substance McGravitas made a face at me, so I decided to make a more colorful, likely seizure-inducing, version back at him:

The Needle And The Damage Done

While the photoshoopery is fun, the more mundane of our political realities are really fucking pissing me off. I'd really, really like to hope that this is a sign of some clever politicking that is ideally designed to quiet the constant barrage of noisy OMGWTFBBQ!? over the non-compliant policy cancellations. I dunno, I'd like to hope I guess. Anyway, the whole "MM-MUH PLAN! WHUT ABOUT MUH PRESHUS PLAN!" bullshit, along with Neil Young's recent birthday (68!) collided here:

I feel like it would be perfect if we adjust the lyrics a teensy bit for the current situation:

I caught them knockin'
at my cellar door
We love you, baby,
can we have some more?
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and
I lost my friends
I watched the needle
take another plan
Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song
because I love the plan
I know that some
of you won't understand
to keep from running out.

I've seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every flunkie's
like a settin' sun.

Meh, that'll work. As usual, vast readership, suggestions welcome in the comments.

Franzia? Really?

OK, of course I love the fact that 300 random people dressed up in wacky outfits and got together to drink and ride their bikes through Corvallis. But... Franzia? In Oregon, home to some absolutely fucking amazing beer, you choose to drink cheap box wine?

I just... I don't even... I expect better of you Oregon. I. Expect. Better!

Dr. Dudebro's Dudebroing for Fun And Profit.

Just got this e-mail:

At its November meeting, the State Board's Academic Strategies Committee approved OSU's proposal for the Ph.D. in Business Administration degree program. This program will be effective Fall Term 2014.

The program will offer two graduate options: Innovation/Commercialization and Accounting. The primary objective of this degree is to prepare its graduates for careers in research and teaching at research-oriented colleges and universities.

It's bad enough that campus is infested with a bunch of dudebros working on their MBAs, now they will be able to continue their studies even longer.

I wonder what their theses will look like? Hmm...

  • The CTO's Dilemma: A Quantitative Assessment Of Just How Many Wimmens You Must Employ To Not Appear Misogynistic
  • Prophet and profit: A Dynamic Model For Maximizing Revenue In Modern Christianity
  • A Qualitative Review of Effective Elevator Statements of The Early 21st Century

Maybe my vast commentariat can suggest some more. No fair cheating and looking at the actual topics Stanford's Ph.D. program has produced for ideas.
