academia is brutally competitive

the communist pirates are for the liberal arts subjects and there are erudite dinosaurs for computer science

Wow, am I ever glad that I didn’t go for a grad degree! Of course, you could say that was involuntary on my part, although entirely arbitrary and in my opinion uncalled for on the part of the five institutions of higher learning which I attended.

Perhaps I should become a ninja? I found the hat:

Day of the Ninja: how to become a ninja

As we here at the ol’ raincoaster blog have noted, December 5th is the Day of the Ninja. You may wish to ninjafy yourself, or you may wish to ninja-proof yourself (as if such a thing can be done!) in preparation for the dread event.

Our sympathies, naturally, lie much more towards the Squid quadrant of the Grid of Alignment (Squid, Pirate, Ninja, Robot) than the Ninja quadrant, but we provide the following How To Become A Ninja chart as a public service to our readers.

Click to enlarge. And: Don’t say we never did nuthin for ya.

Zombie preparedness: the video

Stolen from CommonCraft via DigitalDoodles and DarrenBarefoot.

Sure, it’s a little late, but when it comes to zombie attack preparedness, better late than never. Also, are you prepared for December 5th? It’s Ninja Action Day. Don’t leave it to the last minute: lay in your ninja, zombie or pirate supplies now, according to your loyalties. If any. When zombies attack, it’s every tentacled being from beyond the star spaces for herself!

Will it Blend: Chuck Norris edition

“There are only two kinds of bad guys. Live bad guys, and the ones who’ve met Chuck Norris.”

This has got to be the single best blender marketing video the universe has ever witnessed, and if you doubt it, click for yourselves.

We’ve really been struggling to find something that could challenge the Total Blender’s blending capabilities. What could we blend that’s stronger than anything we’ve ever blended?
Then it hit us like a roundhouse kick to the face…Chuck Norris!

Hat-tip to Stiletto, for the inspiration to post it.
