i've never really been a mentor, but i've done some teaching, and it is really great to have that feeling of helping someone with what they need to get on in the world. i envy you the mentoring, but not the hero-worship - i guess you need the right sort of outsize ego to like that, i would be too worried about how soon my clay feet would show through.

maybe you could get a "not a hero" t-shirt, to wear when meeting future students? you know, just to get things off on the right foot. or maybe a poster. full disclosure, and all that.

I woke up this morning and found this article on cracked and now I am very sad.

If you don't want to click the link here are the highlights and (some) references they use:

In the United States, death by childbirth is rising because hospitals are fucking stupid!

Belief in God is being replaced by belief in ghosts. No, seriously.

The government isn't exactly popular right now, which has led to a decrease in vaccines! Shocked

Remember how I said people are replacing God with Ghosts? Same goes for Astrology! Even down to the televangelists (Tubestrologers?)

Finally, voter fraud is most definitely NOT A THING! Voter surpression, unfortunately, is most definitely, absolutely, still a thing. It's still a thing, and it's getting worse. (Don't get your hopes up about the last headline, the subtitle says it all)

Thankfully some parts of the US government are still functioning. This is what we should be focusing on, not Trump's latest attempt to control the news and desensitize us to coming atrocities.

And there's more FEDERAL legislation, bipartisan even!, in the works, can't find it today (need more caffeine).

Keep your chin up and keep voting. We'll get over this speed bump.
