Mr. Feeny was one of the best teachers I ever had.
Mr. Feeny served as my childhood mentor, teacher and educator of wit, as he also served as the voice of “KITT” in the television show Knight Rider (showing my age right now). I love this man.

Guess where NOT to buy felt this holiday season?
Morally incapable of caring about others.
Said the vacuous, climate change denier who’s IQ is within 1 SD of their shoe size.
Confused by the sheer number of sugars and sweeteners on the market? Here’s a comprehensive guide.
I’m not as willing. Self inflicted ignorance should be called out. Pelople who choose to be stupid should be called out. There is no believing in evolution any more than there is believing in Oxygen, it is a real thing. The details of where and when may be up for debate but denying something because you dont “believe” in it should be called out for what it is. Self interested, self imposed ignorance and a crime against humanity.

The Results of Drug Tests on Welfare Recipients in Florida:
Drug testing only benefits the testing company. Typical on conservatives to waste time and money trying to stop a fake issue.
You have to love how they pander to the “everyone on welfare is a mooch and a druggie” types in order to get public support for such a wasteful program - that did nothing but line the pockets of the owners of drug testing facilities.
You know what would be really crazy? If the Governor who signed the law that introduced drug screening, founded one of the largest companies in Florida that provides drug screening.
Fucking Rick Scott.
Tea Party America, ladies and gentlemen. It’s crony capitalism at it’s finest, and the rubes who vote for these shitbags just clap louder and louder while people like Rick Scott fuck them over.
I think the problem is the people who support the ass-hats in the Tea Party can’t do math.
Marina Abramovic meets Ulay
“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”
“En los años 70, Marina Abramovic mantuvo una intensa historia de amor con Ulay. Pasaron 5 años viviendo en una furgoneta realizando toda clase de performances. En 1988, cuando su relación ya no daba para más, decidieron recorrer la Gran Muralla China, empezando cada uno de un lado, para encontrarse en el medio, abrazarse y no volver a verse nunca más. En 2010 el MoMa de Nueva York dedicó una retrospectiva a su obra. Dentro de la misma, Marina compartía un minuto en silencio con cada extraño que se sentaba frente a ella. Ulay llegó sin que ella lo supiera, y esto fue lo que pasó”
I’m not much of a sentimentalist but this touched me.
