On Tuesday, Brandeis University caved to pressure from student and faculty activists and rescinded their invitation to human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali to receive an honorary degree from the school.

I think it boils down to people being WAY too oversensitive these days and taking "politically correct" to extremism. I always hated that whole politically correct movement and this is why, you just cant cater to EVERYONE all the time. That old adage of you can please some of the people some of the time, etc seems to be ignored with respect to jokes and whatnot.

I saw it getting ugly when it suddenly became "not okay" to joke about rape and rapists. Then it became not okay to joke about racial differences and stereotypes.

Slowly but surely every aspect of culture is being added to the list of taboo topics and sadly its the population thats doing it, not the government. I never thought I would live in a time where censorship was being carried out by both the government AND the populace =/

Vegetarians have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts.

Local (to me) news, but with national implications. It's starting to feel like the mid-90's again.

It's pretty well known that modern cars are full of little computers talking to each other. This internal network, known as the CAN bus, is pretty specific to cars and as a result is pretty unfamiliar to most people. Tesla, of course, loves to be different. And by different, I mean not different. Hear me out.

An excellent song combined with an anime (Legend of Black Heaven) that's sadly much more obscure than it deserves to be.
