My life is suffering a temporal anomaly...

*blink blink*

...is it really still Monday? *wimper*

Short News Roundup...
- I hate people and their bureaucratic bullshit. *fist* Honestly, I have never understood why anyone would ever think that it's a good idea to cut education.

- Speaking of Education, I love my school and the educational material it creates. Evidently, this book - The Physics of Superheroes - will teach you all the physics you need to know through the lens of Superman, Spiderman, etc. You hear that, sbryan? Think of the time you could've saved in class!

- Oh snap, Martha. And she was just on the Daily Show too... Still, this article is rediculously snarky.

- OMG this article says Harry Potter is angsty now! Whaddaya mean now, white man? This is the most hilariously pathetic HP article I've ever seen.

- Hee! Lookit the picture! That is Tommy Lee, yo. This article isn't really that exciting, unless you're on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus and sick of theTommy Lee invasion... but it's got that picture!

There (was) a freshman seminar you could take on the physics of comic books. It sounded pretty awesome, but it was before my time. I'm gonna make sure I get in at least one freshman seminar next semester.

N'awwwww. Yer so young!

I never took one. I missed my chance. A lot of them seemed really interesting, but I was taking 18 credits a semester my freshman year. Still am, actually. How 'bout that?

I have never even heard of it, actually. Is it worth checking out? I am, after all, a rabid hp fangirl.

Was it all disprovey or did they actually suggest a broom could fly, and the floo could work like a bank?

I'm very curious now! As if I don't have enough to read for school... Thanks a lot! *rrrrrr*

Kidding, of course.

Not only has Rowling gone on record saying she didn't realize her books would be taken for fantasy (Terry Pratchett sends this up nicely in a speech he gave: "I would have thought that the wizards, witches, trolls, unicorns, hidden worlds... would have given her a clue?"), there have been interviews and articles about her that claim she subverts the genre and before her it was all about knights and aliens (Yeah, in 1995 she invented the concept of non midieval fantasy. Sure).

Sometimes she pisses off other writers off but I guess it gives journalists crappy stories to write. I just think it's funny how people jump all over Harry Potter as if it's the most original thing since the printing press.
