  1. In trutina

    In trutina mentis dubia
    Fluctuant contraria
    Lascivus amor et pudicitia

    Sed eligo quod video
    Collum iugo prebeo
    Ad iugum tamen suave transeo

    In my own wavering balance
    Desire fluctuates with modesty
    But I choose what I see

    I bow my neck to the yoke
    For the burden is sweeter after all
    And so I take it upon me

  2. you just luvs the 1%. go richboy! mittens 2012: at least he’s not a communist!!11!!

  3. it doesn’t have a beat and you can’t dance to it I give it an 8

  4. Pamela Anderson posed for photographs on the red carpet, following on the heels of Jane Fonda, who stepped into the store to join the likes of Ed Ruscha, Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Stewart, Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow and Woody Harrelson, who milled about and chatted amiably while team McCartney — Paul (accompanied by wife Nancy Shevell) and fashion designer-daughter Stella shook hands and greeted celebri-fans gathered to watch the video.

    It was a rare moment indeed to watch A-list celebrities act like star-struck teens in front of the musician. “I’m such a fan — obviously,” said a wide-eyed Zooey Deschanel as she shook Paul’s hand. Following that, a proud mother introduced her 8-year-old daughter to Sir Paul, saying: “She can play all your songs on the piano!” as Ginnifer Goodwin looked on.*my valentine

  5. I thought it was re-create ’68 not ’64

  6. Johnny Depp was hatched to play this role.

  7. Reuters (Reuters) – About 150 Afghan schoolgirls were poisoned on Tuesday after drinking contaminated water at a high school in the country’s north, officials said, blaming it on conservative radicals opposed to female education

    Conservative radicals.

  8. Nate Silver prepping the battlefield.

    12. Don’t over-learn the lessons of history. A final and more general point is that there have been only 16 presidential elections since World War II. That simply isn’t a lot of data, and overly specific conclusions from them, like “no recent president has been re-elected with an unemployment rate over 8.0 percent” or “no recent incumbent has lost when he did not face a primary challenge,” are often not very meaningful in practice and will generally not carry much predictive weight.

    Translation: Life is expectations. The econometric political models will and are forecasting an Obama loss, so everyone with me, down the memory hole they go.

  9. Wish harder, Nate! Sprinkle some unicorn farts on your wishes, and they may just come true!
