"And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard."

hope-in-every-book:

In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, an article titled “Young Adult at Heart” discusses how many literary classics such as Lord of the Flies, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Catcher in the Rye would most likely be classified as the Young Adult genre in today’s publishing industry because they feature young protagonists dealing with all sorts of plot lines, each with their own depth and thought. 

It’s nice to see that one of the most popular enertainment magazines realizes that true literary art can come in any shape, size or genre. 

Cheers to them!

(Also mentioned: The Diary of Anne Frank, Dune, Jane Eyre and A Separate Piece.)

I JUST UNDERSTOOD WHAT THE CHUM BUCKET IS ON SPONGEBOB. 
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. I JUST REALIZED.
Chum is something that fisherman use as bait…it’s chopped up fish parts.
IT’S A CANNIBAL RESTAURANT. THAT’S WHY NOBODY GOES THERE.
I’M HAVING REVELATIONS OVER HERE.
I feel like I just discovered Davinci’s code or something, this really isn’t that important, but, the people need to know…
