Got my Bird Head Boiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
That’s the expected cost to taxpayers over 10 years from Obama’s proposed free tuition plan, the White House admitted Friday.
That’s about the cost of 8 months of war in Iraq. Seems like a much better investment of my tax dollars to me.
It’s amazing how 80 billion isn’t worth mentioning when it’s about killing people, but is suddenly a huge, horrifying barrier when it’s about improving lives.
I’d still pay for it this. I’d be the one good thing my taxes would be going towards. Cause it sure ain’t going to infrastructure or schools at this rate »
#is this number meant to scare me? #80 billion over ten years #so 8 billion a year #divided by the total number of tax payers in america #in 2013 there were 242 million taxpayers #so going off that number#it would cost the average american taxpayer $33 a year #wow so scary what a horrible way to spend $33
amen. this is, what, dinner and drinks at a mediocre sit-down restaurant for two? I’d spare it.

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (PC)
Bio: Dark Souls is dubbed one of the hardest games ever created, and for good reason. The combat is very striking and it feels real. That being said, you will die a lot. A lot.
This game is insane. It’s just… it’s insane.
That Asylum Demon is absolutely mad, at first. I can’t believe I thought I had to kill him with that broken dagger.
I keep killing the bosses around the same time they kill me. It’s ridiculous. No idea if that’s how it’s going to go down with the Bell Gargoyles. I hope not.
Also, fuck Games for Windows Live. I spent hours on customer support trying to recover an account that I didn’t need (never managed to recover it).
The sword I got made things a lot easier. Had to grind to get the correct strength to weild it but it’s still epic. However I think my character is really going to go up the dex build.
Dark Souls is really addicting. What’s with all these awesome action games?
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Wii U)
The Royal Ludroth is a fucking bitch, let me tell you. This asshole will fuck you up, so you best be prepared with a decent set of armor. Obviously I wasn’t. I forget how many times I tried the quest over. I gave up around the time he completely gimped me. There I was slicing away with the dual daggers, and he traps me in a corner while he’s in an enraged state and continues to plow over me like a rolling pin. That was about my last straw so I just tied up a few loose ends before hopping off.
I’ve had this game for over a year. I can’t believe I’ve never discovered its greatness before now.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Wii U)
Bio: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is an action game with heavy RPG elements that pits you up against some of the most brutal monsters alive. In a weird twist of Dark Souls meets horrifying beasts of wontan death and destruction, MH3U knows what it is and isn’t afraid to be hardcore. This game took over a year for me to get into due to being overwhelmed with the wealth of content that they pack into the game.
I only had a quest to kill the Arzuros once. I actually had to retry the capture quest because I accidentally layed down a shock trap in the wrong spot and nothing got caught in it, let alone Arzuros. That hurly bulk of a bear is unrelenting. I eventually ended up killing him before the mission would allow me to place down another shock trap.
So far, the game is fun and engaging. The things that kept me from playing it before now only add to the fun. I was wrong to be intimidated by the size of this game. MH3U is a great game that’s definitely worth my attention.

Going down for my first core i was insanely tired due to sleep deprivation beginning to catch up. It didn’t take long at all for me to fall asleep, and fell asleep just a few minutes early. But when my alarm went off around 1:55am, I was not prepared. I stuffed a piece of gum in my mouth to set my circadian rythm and got up.
I was practically falling asleep standing up for a straight hour. I spent an hour going between pacing and sitting at my desk for a little bit of work. After about 3am hit, however, it wasn’t nearly as overwhelming. Don’t get me wrong I was still exhausted but at least I could keep my eyes open.
I fell asleep for me second core a bit early, before I got the chance to set the alarm. Thankfully I woke up for a split second about halfway through and turned on my alarm for whatever I could remember the wake time was (which wasn’t really accurate, with all the groggieness).
I woke up to the alarm of my secod core and felt a lot better. I got a shower in and spent some of my hours deeply engrossed into Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
This time before my nap I turned off all of my electronics about 30 mins early to read a book. After I set the book down, I turned on the alarm and proceeded to do some resting excersizes until I fell asleep.
Yay! This is my first time falling asleep for a nap, pretty much in my entire life. I didn’t feel refreshed afterwords, because my body isn’t used to getting a full sleep cycle in during a nap, but I distinctly felt like I lost time, which is a good thing.
I remember my dreams from the second core of sleep were all about slaying monsters with friends on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Nerdy dream but whatever. We spent quite a bit of time doing it. I’ll spare you the nitty gritty details. We probably slayed 3~4 giant beasts.
Remembering this dream is what helped me fall asleep for my nap this afternoon. I’m glad my memories of dreams are improving so drastically.
I didn’t write out a sleep Diary yesterday due to waking up a bit early to cover yesterday’s Nintendo Direct. After yesterday’s sleep, I decided I would go ahead and move on to the next phase of adaption, according to the Smart Sleep app.

My first core was great, as usual. Nothing really to report..
Second core was nice. I like the shorter second core. Having two long cores just doesn’t work out for me.
My nap today just happened. I didn’t actually fall asleep but I spent the time deeply relaxing. I didn’t expect to fall asleep the first time, anyway. It will catch up to me anyway.
I’m still struggling to remember my dreams, really, but I was definitely lucid near the end of my second core last night, there is no doubt about that.
I was dreaming and, I think I was trapped and couldn’t really move. Somehow that instantly told me I was in a dream and I was lucid.
Now, despite being lucid, I didn’t do anything cool. I quickly accepted the fact that I was in a dream. That wasn’t bizare, really, but something in the dream was terrifying me. Instead of being clever and just wisking the scary thing away, I willed myself to wake.
I remember very distinctly the will to wake. It was like frantic. Like trying to surface from the bottom of the ocean without any breath. I litterally had NO idea what I would be waking up to at the time. I had no idea what my life would be like or where I would be at. All I knew is that I wanted to figure it out.
Maybe instead of being curious about my waking life while dreaming, I can actually be curious about the dream world. Next time I notice that happen, I will try to make sure I don’t pull myself out of it so quickly.

My first core went relatively well, as usualy. Woke up to my alarm this time. This is the first night so far where I didn’t wake up on my own from the first core. I feel like I remember a few of the instances from my dreams in this core, which is a solid step forward for dream recall.
My waking time was spent fine-tuning some of my articles.
It took me awhile to fall asleep for my second core, but it didn’t go over to horribly. I woke up once at 6 to check the time, but considering that was only 2 hours into the core, I went back to sleep. I woke up to my alarm blaring about 5 mins after it started going off (oops).
After waking up to my second alarm, I cuddled up to my S.O. for another 10 mins before feeling awake enough to actually get out of bed. Again, I know I should just get up as soon as I hear it going off.
I’m definitely falling asleep quicker for my second core. Now it’s just a matter of getting comfortable before I can fall asleep, and I instantly kind of start consiously halucinating, but not quite to the point where I would say I’m dreaming.
I remember a few dreams from last night. I found myself under the dentist’s chair in one dream.
In another dream, I remember making deals with certain people. Maybe not the most… upstanding citizens.
Details at this very second are a bit fuzzy. As they come back through the day I’ll update this post.
Alice Zielinski is currently an MIT undergraduate studying aeronautical & astronautical engineering and computer science & electrical engineering. In this article, she tells us that
“Many MIT students recount questions about their GPA, test scores, magnificent things they’ve built, other accomplishments—while I often find myself trying to convince people that I actually attend MIT. The reactions that I’ve received from people range from amusing to borderline offensive, from delightful to ‘what??’”
Just another thing to show to your friends who don’t believe that sexism in STEM is a thing. Especially since she had to write a follow up addressing negative responses.
i watched agdq for the first time this year and the run of OoT brought back a lot of memories
i’d like to think zelda went back to see all the places she traveled to as sheik, even if link wasn’t there to join her. just to see them with her own eyes, y’know?
One Student’s Epic Tweets Call Out the Biggest Hypocrites Marching for Free Speech In Paris
Adding to the symbolic weight of the demonstrations, more than 40 world leaders joined the start of the Paris march, linking arms in an act of solidarity. But as Reporters Without Borders points out, not every world leader present is really a defender of free speech.
