more things I learned from Express
Much love for the following snippet from Disaffected Scanner Jockey:
Gentrification is the magic pixie dust of Washington. A few sprinkles, and a Starbucks springs to life. A good shake or two, and you wind up with a trendy gastropub, a wine bar, or an upscale pizza joint.— DSJ, Your Wallet Or Your Ass?
I had heard of, but not yet seen the videos from Kate McAlpine on YouTube rapping about particle physics, it’s cheesy but I do love the Large Hadron Rap. I still like the short Chemical Party from the research arm of the European Union a little better tho.
The source of the following quote mystifies me, but it’s good nonetheless:
I am concerned with the fact that Sarah Palin brought the attention to her daughter’s pregnancy, rather than all world issues and what she believes she could possibly do to change them–if elected. I get Sarah Palin’s views against abortion, but I would much prefer to hear more about what she can do for our country rather than how her daughter is going to have a child no matter what.
