At Stanford there was this Professor who was a total bitch and she taught British Literature, which was cool. Except she taught only her opinions of the books and it didn’t help me as a writer. I went to school to learn new things to improve my craft, not have someone else’s opinions carved onto my forehead.
So anyway, for our final project, she asked us to write a ten page paper on why the color symbolism in Othello was so significant. I did some research and it turned out that she did her entire graduate thesis on this very subject. I was mad. This wasn’t teaching, this was boosting her ego. SO I wrote a ten page essay on why color symbolism in Othello wasn’t significant, satirizing it to the point of no return, saying that her opinion was an opinion and shouldn’t be taken seriously.
SHe failed me, needless to say. So in retaliation, I responded by baking a batch of brownies laced with weed and laxatives and delivered them myself to the professor hours before her big graduation speech. I told her that it was a peace offering, my way of apologizing and asking if I could do anything to fix my grade.
She refused to fix my grade.
In the end, she shit herself on stage.
I didn’t regret it.

This is the picture that is being spread around Twitter that “proves” Michael was charging the officer.
1. Michael Brown wasn’t a skinny athletic white woman running the fucking 100m dash off blocks.
2. He had on flips flops. You ever tried running in some flops? Even if he had on sneakers, they aren’t track cleats that weigh next to nothing.
3.He had to have weighed an easy 200+ lbs. Do you think he could match the angle of her body considering THEY WERE DIFFERENT HEIGHTS AND WEIGHTS?
4. THIS ISN’T HOW PHYSICS AND GUN TRAJECTORY WORK AND COMMON SENSE WORK.
Stop it. Stop proving how stupid you are. It’s hilarious to see you try.
(TW: It’s on of the most idiotic anti-liberal Twitter pages I’ve had the unfortunate luck to come across)
dumbest post ive seen. OBVIOUSLY mike brown wasnt a skinny white woman, but he was a BIG 300 lbs black male. Everyone pumps their arms when they run. It’s how running works. so i dont see your argument in that. positioning all the same, except he was most likely standing up taller, not so bent over. If gun shots couldnt stop Brown advancing toward the officer, please tell me how his lack of adequate footwear would. You’re a liberal, how would you even know how guns work? How can you be so ignorant to this? All this new evidence is coming out, and you still refuse to acknowledge it.
Okay, Bethany, I’m going to call you Bethany because fuck you. And I’m going to explain this in a very slow and simple way for you to digest, okay, babydoll?
Alright! Let’s Go! We will start with a picture.
It’s the muthafucking scientific method! You remember this right? I’m kind of getting the feeling that you might not by the unstructured blogglob of a paragraph you spewed from your mouthhole, but we’ll just assume you do.
How this science thing works:
1. Ask a question. Could a 200lb+ be shot as the autopsy photos show if he was charging towards someone else?
Well, gee! I don’t know. Let’s continue to the next step!
2. Background research: What angle would he have to be in for the bullets to land in the places he was shot?
I still don’t know! Let’s try it out! We have to find a model for the problem….
(Finds picture of a athletic white woman frozen in one position.)
HOL UP HOL UP HOL UP WHOA DERE!
CLASS WE HAVE A PROOOBLEM!
You see! The way science works is, when you’ve asked yourself a question and are trying to prove it, YOU FIRST MUST REPLICATE THE PROBLEM.
You wouldn’t ask “Why white people age the way that they do” by studying an Asian. You would study a white person.
So, if the picture is of a skinny athletic white person and they are using that to prove how a 200+ lbs man was shot in the same place (with the assumption that 6 shots could be fired at the SAME DAMN TIME or timed so precisely that they land EXACTLY how the picture has it), GUESS WHAT? The square peg wouldn’t fit in the round hole.
DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUN.
Okay, class (and Bethany) what did we learn today. TO PROVE YOUR POINT, you can’t use an abstract example! (or be stupid enough to FALL FOR IT).
Now sit your silly ass down and shut up.
'Why white people age the way they do'
A snatching of a lifetime, bruh. Bethany, go home.
