Someone help me out, is this satire?

Stolen from fark:Facebook 'poke' leads to awkward one-nighter I honestly can't tell if this is satire or not, it all sounds too ridiculous. Eiter way it's hilarious, and a nice post to follow the "science is hard" post

Science is hard, cry more

This article at MentorNet News suggests that the reason why kids don't go into science and engineering as much in america is because it's tougher to get good grades and the classes are impersonal. I only have one response CRY MORE, maybe someone who cares will give you a hug. At some point when the job market gets really bad and technical skills and backgrounds come into vogue again, people will suck it up and go into difficult majors. Till then, there will be a steady supply of indian, asian, and east european immigrants to take up the spaces in high quality science and engineering majors. Of course once the level of competition rises high enough in liberal arts programs, they will have to start creating weeder courses just like other disciplines. Unfortunately, grade inflation combats the correction, but at some point there has to be a backlash.


New tracks from DJ Hyjinx-- Wicked!!!

One of my good LA friends is an accountant by day and a drum 'n' bass dj by night. In college he was dj cheshtang, but keeping with his philosophy of making dnb more fun and accessible he changed his name to hyjinx. You can find the new tracks at his beta records page, and you can also check him out on myspace.
