This is what I've been seeing.  Even as recently as 4:25.

Google, get your stuff together!

Eh.  It's an opinion, one of millions.  I feel it's the right choice for me, and if enough people in the right places feel the same, then Obama will win.  If enough people in the right places feel the other way, Romney will win.  In either case, the country will go on.

Brilliant.  I remember my snake-fight.
 
Q: Would someone who wrote a bad thesis and defeated a large snake get the same grade as someone who wrote a good thesis and defeated a small snake? 
A: Yes.

Q: So then couldn’t you just fight a snake in lieu of actually writing a thesis? 
A: Technically, yes. But in that case the snake would be very big. Very big, indeed.

Q: Could the snake kill me? 
A: That almost never happens. But if you’re worried, just make sure that you write a good thesis.

Q: Why do I have to do this? 
A: Snake fighting is one of the great traditions of higher education. It may seem somewhat antiquated and silly, like the robes we wear at graduation, but fighting a snake is an important part of the history and culture of every reputable university. Almost everyone with an advanced degree has gone through this process. Notable figures such as John Foster Dulles, Philip Roth, and Doris Kearns Goodwin (to name but a few) have all had to defeat at least one snake in single combat.

Q: This whole snake thing is just a metaphor, right? 
A: I assure you, the snakes are very real.

I had a witty, relevant comment for this, but then I thought a woman might see my post.

In all seriousness, though, it is an interesting read, and I should like to read the paper directly.
 
..and that explains so many things.

I'm constantly thinking about them, so I'm constantly impaired.
