Ahh Blood at 8AM in the Morning

On the corner of 47th and 7th this morning there was a Guatamalan construction worker bleeding profusely from the back of the head. It was a large gash caused by some sort of construction equipment and looked somewhat like a steel bean slapped him upside the head.

His brilliant construction buddies were there to aid him in his time of need, however. Their solution? Bend over and we'll pour water over it.

We're not sure, but we don't think that kind of dark skinned voodoo magic water healing is going to work for this guy. We're thinking stiches - at a real hospital - with people who have degrees in that sort of thing.

Ok, maybe that was a step too far - but we saw you smirk...racist bastard.

Stumble It!

Psycho of the Day

Right now, a 50 to 60 year old man has barricaded himself inside Johnson Space Center. At least one person is wounded, and it is unknown if he is holding hostages. Shots have been fired.

Maybe he never got into Space Camp...?

UPDATE:

Gunman killed himself and one hostage dead.

PSYCHO OF THE DAY

"Hokie Hope" Day

The governor of Virginia has declared today "Hokie Hope" Day. We respect the university's loss, but with all regards to the victims and their families - that is the, well, hokiest shit we ever heard.

Thoughts?

Students Killed In Virginia Tech Massacre To Receive Degrees Posthumously

As reported by NY1 News, "Virginia Tech officials announced Thursday morning that the students who were killed during the horrific massacre at the school on Monday will posthumously receive the degrees they were working toward at the school's upcoming commencement."

For most students, getting accepted to a University is an achievement in itself, actually obtaining a degree is another story. Recent statistics show that one in three students drop out before actually receiving a diploma. By these standards, approximately only twenty of the murdered students would have completed their studies.

What about the wounded? Shouldn't they at least get a tuition discount?

Virginia Tech also announced that all of the students will be able to finish the semester as they see fit - meaning, if their work thus far is sufficient for a grade, they do not have to attend classes the remainder of the school year.

Does this fall under the category of "If your roommate dies, you get automatic A's"?
