professor

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.

That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.
The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

A Big Google Chrome Extensions Push Is Imminent

seems to suggest this Extension launch is indeed imminent. The image on the right would look to be some sort of new Chrome menu placeholder icon related to extensions.

And there’s more. Below, find some other pictures and information I was able to find in the Chromium Code Reviews area (placed by Google employees) that seem to make it very clear that Google is about to unleash extension support to rival that of Firefox. Based on what I’m reading, developers will be able to add icons to the Chrome toolbar (likely what the image above represents), add temporary icons inside the Chrome address bar (think: RSS icon), allow users to customize the extensions, and developers will apparently even be able to implement their own versions of “standard browser pages such as the New Tab page.”

google-mail-checker-captureFor some time now, Google Chrome has been working with a number of extensions — but unofficially. That’s about to change in a big way, maybe as soon as tomorrow. And some digging through backchannel chatter reveals some of Google’s intentions here.

As first spotted by DownloadSquad earlier today, Google appears to have tipped its hand a little early. In the newest builds of Chromium across all the platforms (yes, even Mac and Linux), you can clearly see the jigsaw puzzle area in the lower right hand corner. This is in the same place that the colorful stripes usually appear to take you to the Theme Gallery. But clicking on this area currently redirects you back to google.com — but as you can see when you hover over it, clearly there will be something at https://chrome.google.com/extensions, presumably an Extensions Gallery.

As you may recall, Google also tipped off its Theme Gallery a bit early on this tab page just before it launched.

The steps of the ninja warrior must be as silent as the morning mist upon the ground. To avoid detection, he must be as still as the midnight air. He must be as fearless as — GAAAHHH NOOOOO GIANT HAND GIANT HAND RUN AWAY!!!

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – The world’s largest cruise ship has arrived in South Florida.

The 16-deck Oasis of the Seas docked Friday at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. It set sail from Finland to Florida in late October.

The massive $1.5 billion vessel is nearly 40 percent larger than the industry’s next-biggest ship and five times larger than the Titanic. It has 2,700 cabins and can accommodate 6,300 passengers and 2,100 crew members.

The ship also features various “neighborhoods”—parks, squares and arenas with special themes. One of them will be a tropical environment that will include palm trees.

The Oasis of the Seas will embark on its first cruise on Dec. 5.

Lion opens family’s car door with his teeth

Lion opens family’s car door with his teeth
Lion opens family's car door with his teeth

The lion may have appeared wild, but it had clearly learnt one or two things
about cars after years of watching curious visitors drive past.

As the white Toyota came to a halt in the Lion Safari Park in Johannesburg, it
slowly padded over while the family inside watched in excitement, unaware of
what was about to happen.

Thier glee turned to horror as the 300lb lion firmly took the rear door handle
with his teeth and pulled it open in one deft movement.

For several seconds the car remained still while the occupants digested the
shock of what had happened before finally hitting the accelerator and
driving off.

As they fled, the lion followed in pursuit until it reached the gates of the
enclosure. There it was finally held back by a warden who hurled stones to
shoo it back.
