This should be required viewing for anyone who parrots the looney Left’s claim that “Bush lied.”
If he did, he wasn’t alone.
Note: The Professor points out that the music in the background is Traffic’s The Low Spark of High-heeled Boys. Coincidence?
This test is kind of fun. See if you can discern which smiles are fake and which are real.
I scored 19 out of 20 correct. How many can you get right?
Most of them don’t even make me crack a smile. This one made me laugh out loud.

Teaching Math In 1960:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?
Teaching Math In 1970:

A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20.
What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question:
How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers)
Teaching Math In 2005:
Un hachero vende una carretada demaderapara $100. El costo de la producción es $80…..
Well, I certainly am rooting for the French and their new get tough curfew.
If it works, we ought to post “No Hijacking, Please” signs in every airport.
Not even sure where to begin. But if I were able to muster a few words about this news story, I am sure among them would be the phrase, “I’d like to party with these girls……”
Go, Panthers! [Update]: Check that – Bad, Panthers! They’ve fired them? Don’t they understand the impact on attendance this would have had? Idiots. And when was the last time they fired (or even disciplined) a player for either a bar fight or alleged sexual improprieties?
[Update]: As either Bob or Tom said on the radio this morning, the easiest way to avoid this problem in the future, ladies? Use the men’s room. For damn sure nobody in there would have complained.
How long do you think this took? (Beware the loud music)
Hat tip: Mr. Goldberg.
Bork on Alito:
Still, we do not know how the new chief justice and Justice-to-be Alito will rule on Roe and other liberal constitutional travesties of the past. Why, then, should conservatives support them? Because we can at least be sure that they will not start inventing yet new and previously unheard of constitutional rights. That would in itself be a vast improvement over the imperialistic Court majority’s drive to remake American culture and morality. That it will take at least one more justice of the Roberts-Scalia-Thomas-Alito stripe to return the Court to jurisprudential respectability is no reason not to support Judge Alito to the full. Let us rejoice in what we have gained.
Can you imagine if that “one more justice” were Bork? Imagine: Roberts-Scalia-Thomas-Alito-Bork.
The mind reels.
How could I be a 36 year old highly educated person and have no idea about this?
