    So some home grown news, my university is shut again, because a 100 or so students decide the other 20 000 should not be getting an education. Thank god I`m working from home nowadays.

    On a somewhat similar note, my uni and hall of residence are in the media for repeatedly letting sexual offenders off with warnings (one reoffended).

    I actually had lunch with one of these guys way back. Sick bastard stole over 200 pieces of underwear and recorded girls in the shower. Unbelievable that they did absolutely nothing besides making him write an apology letter.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a big campus across the world that didn't have such problems. I know the drive to rewrite campus sexual assault policies has come in for a lot of criticism, but it's a response to a very serious and widespread failing.

    People on my FB feed from both sides of politics who followed this election actually think it's a great result. I was completely in the dark so I can't endorse him too much but they're all really optimistic about it - even the hardcore libertarian pessimists - so I'm cautiously optimistic about it as well.

    I did lol at him having played the President on TV though. It puts the Donald Trump Home Alone appearance and Apprentice series to shame.

    I don't know quite why people are still surprised about this.... most of the voting and surprise in recent politics are not attributed to the apparent rising right or socialist left, the only consistency that is seen is unhappy people voting for change, and cross-fingers it will be better. Because for many, in there minds, it can't get worse.

    It is a truly grim irony that a community which is now mostly known for murdering people and being pro-rape started out as what would nowadays be described in tumblrspeak as a bona fide safe space.

    Obviously comas are far from the greatest things in the world, but I am fascinated by how you would explain things like how the world has been politically, culturally etc to someone coming out of such a long coma.
