Professor suspended for Game Of Thrones shirt that threatened community college kingdom * Newswire * The A.V. Club -
Professor suspended for Game Of Thrones shirt that threatened community college kingdom * Newswire * The A.V. Club
"Confirming yet again that the halls of academia are no place for interpreting things, a New Jersey professor was suspended over a Game Of Thrones T-shirt whose tagline--the Daenerys Targaryen quote, "I Will Take What Is Mine With Fire & Blood"--was interpreted by his colleague as a threat. The incident came about after Francis Schmidt, who teaches art and animation at Bergen Community College, posted a photo of his daughter doing a yoga pose in the shirt to his Google+ account, where it was seen by the people who actually use Google+, such as easily riled deans. Said dean reportedly called for an emergency meeting, concerned that this small, unsettlingly agile girl in a T-shirt was Schmidt's way of announcing his intention to claim all the spoils a New Jersey community college has to offer, by force if necessary." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
I mean, it would be maybe something if he wore it to work, but... - Heather, 30k Camper
Geez. - Stephen Mack
Reminds me of the Inigo Montoya t-shirt ona plane incident. - Joe - Systems Analyst
What the hell is going on with our schools that teachers and administrators feel threatened by a (1) finger gun (2) a GOT t-shirt on a little girl and (3) a science project with the word "gun" in it? - Spidra Webster
I mean, it's not as if he told the dean that he acquired his daughter's shirt by paying the iron price. - Stephen Mack
"where it was seen by the people who actually use Google+, such as easily riled deans." *snerk* - holly #ravingfangirl
I've never seen Game of Thrones, but I would hope that grown-assed adults would assume a child in a t-shirt on a personal site is not a veiled threat to work colleagues. And I'm sure the psychiatrist is going to be thrilled with having to waste their time with a stupid evaluation. - Anika - "But revenge appears to be a theme in both the show and Schmidt's life -- he believes the suspension was retaliation for a grievance he had filed earlier after he was denied a sabbatical without explanation about two months before the incident. "This was payback because I filed a grievance," he said."" - Andrew C (✔)
*sigh* Oh FFS. - ronin
IOW, any excuse for those with power to take offence is a good one. same as it ever was. - Big Joe Silence
"Schmidt was suspended without pay and forced to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before being reinstated with a list of other restrictions, he said, such as not wearing clothing with questionable statements and not making disparaging statements about the college. " It would be really hard not to say something about a college with administrators that bone stupid. - Spidra Webster
This is still better than the sheriff's deputy who pulled out his gun because a barking dog "made him fear for his life" (and he accidentally shot himself.) - Victor Ganata from iPhone
then he was kicked in the balls repeatedly and required to never mention it. - Big Joe Silence
" and not making disparaging statements about the college" - if it were me, I'd be making factual statements about the college's handling of this incident and the dean in particular from now until eternity. - Andrew C (✔)
Imagine this on a shirt: "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death." - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
As long as you add "Matthew 10:21" (or whatever book/chapter/verse) after it, you could probably get away with all sorts of subversive, vaguely threatening things. - Victor Ganata
Yep. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

I would lose, hol. But you know what dish to serve at my wake. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Salivatory memory jog - I had a shark-marlin-[3rd fish can't remember] meal at the Boathouse at White Rock, BC years ago that I'll never forget. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I wonder if it was swordfish. I’ve had that and it was good. Never had marlin, though. - Akiva
You know that would be my best guess, I think it was swordfish. Delightful. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Are we talking raw or cooked? - Meg VMeg
Cooked. Well, that's what I'm talking. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
i actually love it either/both ways. - holly #ravingfangirl

stupid news story making me all teary.
*shakes tiny fist* - holly #ravingfangirl
Being referred to in a group as "you guys" is so, so irritating to me.
It's possible I have a bad attitude today. - Marie from iPhone
I'm trying to break myself of that habit - maʀtha
one of my faculty told me off in a email for addressing her and male colleagues as "you guys" - Sir Shuping is just sir
all y'all - Greg GuitarBuster
Nah, just "y'all." Reserve "all y'all" for situations in which a group is in trouble: "All y'all better X if you know what's good for you!" ;) - Rachel Walden
I know where you're coming from. Related problem: the word gals seems awkward to me. Similar to dudes in a non-surfing context. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
From my experience, the use of "all y'all" requires a mid-air finger snap. - Marie
I've been making a conscious effort to switch to "folks" for exactly this reason. - Catherine Pellegrino
I've developed a negative reaction to 'folks', probably because of its overuse in political speeches "folks are having a hard time, they're hurting" (of course the speaker isn't REALLY connected to 'folks') - Greg GuitarBuster
Maybe it's because I grew up with a lot of brothers, but I have no problem with "you guys". I don't see it as gendered. "Ladies", on the other hand, raises my hackles as a way to refer to a group of females. - Spidra Webster
I usually refer to a group as "y'all" out of habit. A weird habit to have for a native Californian, really. :) And Spidra, I detest when someone rolls up and refers to a group of women as "ladies". It always feels so disingenuine and almost patronizing. - Hookuh Tinypants
I got your second-person plural pronoun right here, Ladies. - Holly's favorite Anna
I've seen enough instances of people saying "you guys" to all-female groups that I believe it really is gender-neutral for a subset of native speakers - but also try to avoid it myself because of the subset for whom it really really isn't. I think formally I say "you all" if disambiguation is required ("y'all" isn't a word here; "youse" is but isn't natural in my own mouth), and on social media I say "folks" or "tweeps" or use the Māori "hoa mā" (friends) depending on audience. - Deborah Fitchett
Sometimes, I will say "Hi everyone," or "Hi all," when sending an email to a buncha people. - Joe - Systems Analyst
What is wrong with you guys? - Joe - Systems Analyst
Hi all, or You all. - Betsy
People - maʀtha
I am actually quite irritated when someone at work sends an email to everyone in the support dept, and opens it with something like "Hey guys and gal" or "Hey guys (and April)", since I am the only female in the group. I don't like being singled out like that. For me, I'd much prefer "Hey guys" without the additional add-on just for me. I also consider "guys" to be gender neutral, in... more... - April Russo
I find that the use of "guys and little ladies" can instantly achieve nearly universal disdain. (I don't actually use this. Really.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

"A secluded party in the woods for 19-year-old Nathaniel Gray's birthday. At least, that's what the attendees thought it would be.

Basil pesto butter poached salmon. DINNER.
Purchased from Costco, but I could so make that again. - Jennifer Dittrich
8oz salmon fillet, topped w/a tablespoon of butter mixed with pesto, baked at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes (or until up to 145 degrees.) I guess that's baked? It cooks in the butter more or less the whole time. - Jennifer Dittrich
whoa. yes. need to try this. - Big Joe Silence
It is so good. Very rich. It needs a pan with high sides, but was super easy to fix (says the woman who bought it ready to throw in the oven.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Daaaaaaaamn - Marie
i've been tempted by that so many times. now, even more so. - holly #ravingfangirl
I saw that at Costco yesterday. It's good to hear a recommendation for it! - Anne Bouey

This is going to sound so stereotypical but we had roast beef and yorkshire puddings with roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli and cabbage, followed by hot-cross-bun-bread-and-butter pudding ;-) - Heleninstitches
@Katie - Which Cava did you go to? I went to the one in Rockville a few years ago and loved it. - Corinne L
Grilled cheese, probably. - Melly
It'a 5:15am. Why would I think about dinner?!? - Uli
Kids had grilled cheese, Josh had leftover bolognese sauce on toast, I had a bagel with bacon. - Melly
Corinne, I go to the one in Columbia Heights. It's the one I started going to periodically with my friend who I knit with, and now that I've moved into walking distance, I'm going a lot more often :D - Katie
Katy, my brain just omitted "opc". *headdesk* - Uli
I made risotto, roasted root vegetables, and teriyaki chicken strips. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I did another pork roast, this time braised in 1/3 cup chicken stock, 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar (I used Red Apple Balsamic) and 1 tablespoon each of honey and worchestershire sauce. Served it over egg noodles with green beans on the side. It was pretty yummy. Today's lunch is leftover Chicken Tikka Masala that I made Saturday night and that turned out pretty well, though not *quite* as good as our local Indian place makes it... - WebGoddess
i had wine and cheese and grapes and strawberries. then i came home and had cookies. and toast. - Marianne
