Authoritarian pet owners—meaning individuals who do not think of their dogs or cats as family members and never let them sleep on the bed—were significantly more likely to hold conservative political positions than their more permissive pet-owning counterparts. The figure below, for instance, shows that the most authoritarian pet owners were about 25 percentage points more likely to disapprove of Obama and identify as Republicans and Conservatives than respondents who both considered their pets to be family members and always let them sleep on the bed—a relationship that holds after controlling for pet type and several demographic variables.

Cosmo sex tip #301:

Don’t be scared of doing something a bit more flexible. While you’re on top turn your head 360 degrees whilst screaming ‘the anti-christ has awoken’.

On Friday, I found out I was waitlisted for UChicago and I still can’t believe it. I was expecting to be rejected, so to know that UChicago would like to have me at their school (even if they don’t have the room) is incredibly humbling. My chances of getting off the waitlist are absolutely abysmal (statistically speaking, it’s just over 3%), but I’m still thrilled to not be completely rejected.

Anyway, today I am flashing a just-released Ice Cream Sandwich ROM to my phone, making dinner for the walkupiers, and watching Kentucky’s NCAA tournament game. Life is good.

“For the last three years, Mr. Obama has expanded government instead of empowering the American people… He’s put us deeper in debt, he’s slowed the recovery…” -Mitt Romney
As you can see, however, the President has presided over a smaller increase to government spending than any recent predecessor, except for Clinton.

White people don’t get to decide if something is racist. On a much smaller scale, allow me to represent this by punching you in the face. Then I get to decide, myself, whether it hurts or not.

The new SimCity will let you take control of a city’s environmental destiny:

“You start your city without any money, and you could exploit the coal seams underneath the city and start digging coal out of the ground and make a city that’s pretty filthy, one that’s built on burning coal for power, might have a lot of coal-sustained industries around it and would make me a ton of money as a player. In the long term that would sort of blight the prospects of the city.” In that coal-dependent city, there would be little natural beauty and excessive air and ground pollution, not to mention citizens suffering from coal-related health problems.
Alternatively, players could opt for other sources of energy—gas-fired power plants, solar panels, wind turbines, or nuclear power. All of these sources have their drawbacks. Solar panels, for example, take up a lot of space and produce less power for the money when compared to coal…
