    In a move that surprised no one, Marco Rubio says he's probably not going to vote to confirm Hagel before testimony begins. Why? Well, he just doesn't have Israel's best interests at heart. What's this United States you keep bringing up?

    Dear Abby: About four months ago, the house across the street was sold to a "father and son" — or so we thought. We later learned it was an older man about 50 and a young fellow about 24. This was a respectable neighborhood before this "odd couple" moved in. They have all sorts of strange-looking company. Men who look like women, women who look like men, blacks, whites, Indians. Yesterday I even saw two nuns go in there!... Abby, these weirdos are wrecking our property values! How can we improve the quality of this once-respectable neighborhood? —Up In Arms

    today in history we had one of those simple quizzes where it's like, the left side has five descriptions, the right side has >5 people/places/events. you just fill it in, and they give you a few more answers than you'll use to make it a tiny bit harder to just whittle it down by the process of elimination

    the descriptions (paraphrased):

    portuguese royal who sponsored lots of travel and trade with non-european entities
    fabled female warriors glorified in 16th century literature
    mystical lost land that sank into the sea
    a form of national expansion that leads to iniquity and subordinate classes
    muslim state that fell to ferdinand and isabella in 1492

    the answers (they weren't in the right order on the quiz, obviously):

    henry the navigator
    amazonians
    atlantis
    imperialism
    granada
    tenochtitlan


    you'd be amazed how many people just totally fucked this up. i mean, the only one i can even begin to imagine messing up is not recognizing the word tenochtitlan and thinking maybe it's the name of a portuguese dude? but like... the chapter we read for homework (or were supposed to read!) was all about tenochtitlan. the word was used a dozen times. some people got imperialism wrong! how is that possible!

    My one game of Paranoia, I was the only member of the group not in a secret society, so I was the dopey naive guy that everyone used in their schemes.

    Pretty sure one of the best things was there was this annual paranoia larp which was really just a nerdy paranoia themed scavenger hunt at a convention. Anyway, my team had to go get a bunch of people at the convention to sign these petitions, probably something dumb like banning dihydrogen monoxide, and one of the guys that we got to sign it I think knew the guy running it and gave him the heads up that he had signed our petition as Commie M. Traitor.

    Upon returning the signature sheets he glanced over it, chuckled, and we were promptly all down a clone

    My character's role was the quartermaster or something, I could call mandatory equipment checks whenever I wanted.

    The game's not focused on combat, of course, but we had a few brief firefights and I spent the game wishing I could call an equipment check during one of the firefights. Alas, not in character for my totally loyal dope. :(

    I've actually never heard of Henry the Navigator...

    But, uh, I still would have gotten it right by guessing because "Henry the Navigator" sounds like it fits.

    How someone can be an adult and not know that Granada is in modern Spain, and what imperialism is boggles the mind.

    And if you don't know what Atlantis and Amazons were, there is probably no hope for you whatsoever.

    As far as Tenochtitlan goes, we get some Mexican history in California public schools but I'm guessing that's not true of everywhere, and you can always count on people to have not read the assigned reading.
