The Corpus Callosum

Yale Open Courses

is following the trend, putting entire college
courses on the Internet.

As a member of the vast left-wing conspiracy, I object.  

I object, because now, conservatives will be able to see what methods
we use to brainwash college kids.  They will see how we get
them to vote for Ralph Nader.  They will see how we get them
to use those weird curly light bulbs.  The will see how we get
them to eat tofu and tabouleh and tempeh.  

They will find out about the href="http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=7591">most
dangerous books we give them, such as Silent Spring,
Coming of Age in Samoa, and Introduction
to Psychoanalysis
.

Worst of all, they will find out how liberal colleges manage to produce
such reactionaries as George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, Gerald R.
Ford, and William H. Taft (all of whom attended Yale).

    Bugger! Wait until they see what we philosophers make them read. The conspiracy is over!

    Heh. I love how the books you mention basically suck.

    Coming of Age in Samoa was thoroughly debunked- it turns out the Samoan girls were just making fun of this weird white lady that asked them personal questions. Silent Spring was responsible for a brief outlaw of DDT, followed by a huge spike in deaths due to malaria and its subsequent re-legalization. (And consequential return to lower death rates)

    …and everyone knows psychoanalysis is a load of hogwash :)

    The newspaper reporters who hack people phones should be put into prison for 10 years. Longer for hacking the phones of ones who were a victim of a crime or lost some one. The grief and pain of death is bad, without some one hacking your phone to get some thing that they can twist into a news story.

    The newspaper “News of the World” is closing. Hundreds lose their jobs because the one who should have lost her job, gets another job with a fat pay check. As the head of “News of the World” she should have been kicked out and the hundreds of employies that had nothing to do with the scandle, would still have their jobs. Wonder what she has been doing to get that to happen.

    Tar éis a haon déag lá gan ar leathcheann ar a dtugtar Sam, tá sé ar ais ag an obair. Nuair a bhíonn an bosses thart, tá sé donn nosing. A dhéanamh ar aon leithscéal chun dul isteach ar an seomra go bhfuil siad i, amhail is dá mba é sin le rá “breathnú ar dom. Tá mé ag obair”. A dhearcadh a mates oibre eile nuair nach bhfuil an bosses tá thart Is é “Tá mé níos fearr ná tú”. Tharraingíos sé a joke, agus tá sé greannmhar (ina aigne). Ach má tá tú ag tarraingt a joke air. Tá tú na cinn is ísle de gach cineál beatha agus yells sé a cheann amach ar nós tantrum ceithre bliana d’aois. Páirc laistigh de 6 troigh (2 méadar) ar a charr cliste agus má tá tú cur bac air.

    Ich frage mich, wie es war, bis 20.000 Jahren leben? Arbeiten von früh bis spät und dafür, dass Sie versammelten sich genügend Nahrung, um den Winter zu überleben. Zeiten des Überflusses und Notzeiten. Wie viele der Menschen von heute, könnte damals überlebt?

    Wo sind wir jetzt auf die Evolution Weg? Sind wir dabei, zivilisiert oder immer noch auf dem Weg der zunehmenden zerstörerischen Kräfte? Unsere medizinische Wissen wächst mit Riesenschritten an jedem Krieg, aber nicht so stark wie unsere zerstörerischen Waffen. Wenn unser medizinisches Wissen so schnell wie unsere Waffen erhöht hatte, werden wir in der Lage, für zwei oder mehr Jahrhunderte leben.

    Biz təkamül yolu ilə, indi harada? Biz sivil olmaq və ya hələ də dağıdıcı səlahiyyətlərinin artırılması yolu enən edirsiniz? Bizim tibbi biliklərin hər bir müharibə leaps və həddi artır, lakin kimi çox kimi dağıdıcı hücum silahları. Bizim tibbi biliklərin bizim silah kimi sürətli kimi artmışdır, biz iki və ya daha çox əsrlər boyu canlı edə bilərsiniz.

    Miksi ihmiset nälkään maailmassa, joka tuottaa enemmän ruokaa kuin se tarvitsee? Web-sivulla se sanoi johtui logistiikka liikkuvat ruokaa. Sanon, se on enemmänkin voittoja kuin puute kyky liikkua ruokaa, missä sitä tarvitaan. Myös jotkut kolmannen maailman maat vievät ruokaa he tarvitsevat, jotta he voivat saada rahaa muihin asioihin. Jos me kaikki olivat jopa puoli tapa mitä me kutsumme ihmiskunnan, kukaan ei näkisi nälkää. Mutta me olemme ihmisiä ja jättävät elää upto hyvää ihanteita.

    Tiefsee hydrothermale (Heißwasser) Lüftungsöffnungen haben viel Forschung Interesse geweckt kürzlich. Sie wurden 1977 entdeckt und sind nun bekannt, dass in vielen Orten auf dem Meeresboden auftreten. Eine Entlüftung öffnet, wo die Erdkruste instabil ist. Wie Risse bilden, sickert Meerwasser nach unten in den heißen Stein und wird dann wieder die Temperatur vertrieben in der Luft verursacht es zu kochen. Die Temperatur um so ein Riss kann so hoch zu 420 C.

    An elderly couple were having dinner one evening when the husband reached across the table, took his wife’s hand in his and said , “Clara, soon we
    will be married 50 years and there’s something I have to know. In all of these 50 years, have you ever been unfaithful to me?”
    Clara replied, “Well, Paul, I have to be honest with you. Yes, I’ve been unfaithful to you three times during these 50 years, but always for a good reason.”
    Paul was obviously hurt by his wife’s confession, but said, “I never suspected. Can you tell me what you mean by ‘good reasons?”
    Clara said, “The first time was shortly after we were married, and we were about to lose our little house because we couldn’t pay the mortgage. Do you remember that one evening I went to see the banker and the next day he notified you that the loan would be extended?”
    Paul recalled the visit to the banker and said, “I can forgive you for that. You saved our home, but what about the second time?”
    Clara asked, “And do you remember when you were so sick, but we didn’t have the money to pay for the heart surgery you needed? Well, I went to see your doctor one night and, if you recall, he did the surgery at no charge.”
    “I recall that,” said Paul. “And you did it to save my life, so of course I can forgive you for that. Now tell me about the third time.”
    “All right,” Clara said. “So do you remember when you ran for president of your golf club, and you needed 73 more votes?”

    Doctor Dave had slept with one of his patients and felt guilty all day long.

    No matter how much he tried to forget about it, he couldn’t.

    The guilt and sense of betrayal was overwhelming. But every once in a while he’d hear an internal, reassuring voice that said:

    “Dave, don’t worry about it. You aren’t the first doctor to sleep with one of their patients and you won’t be the last. And you’re single. Just let it go..”

    But invariably the other voice would bring him back to reality, whispering:

    “Dave you’re a vet.”

    The tourist asked the waitress for a coffee. Five minutes later the waitress brings the coffee and throws it all over the tourist. The waitress then says to the tourist “Do you want milk with that”. The tourist replies “NO, NO, NO, THANKS”!
