    Google memo fella gone :-(

    In other news from the world of bat-shít mental progressives, a professor at the University of Georgia has declared that he'll let his students pick their own grades in an effort to reduce their stress levels.

    I saw some arsehole on Twitter supporting the sacking, saying that the guy had committed violence by circulating the memo stating scientific facts and that people had been too scared to go to work because of it. It's genuinely terrifying what's happening to the world. It's ceasing even to be funny.

    In other news, the latest Sam Harris podcast is very interesting.

    Yeah. Interesting bloke. Lots of stuff about how we ought to trust our instincts and ignore our social conditioning on things like politeness and PC in order to keep ourselves safe.

    It really does depend on the status of the grade. Formative grades ultimately have no purpose and are designed to govern student behaviour. A summative grade determines outcome and must be derived from performance alone. Any deviation from this is technically fraud and in any recognised profession would implicate all those involved.

    Sounds like the bloke is trying to get sacked.

    There's a woman somewhere in that thread who seems to be suggesting that everyone who expressed support for the memo should also be fired.

    On the plus side, another says "This is how Trump wins another 4 years."

    It really is getting to the stage where I'm starting to wonder if the worst thing we ever did with these idiots was to simply laugh at them. It's really getting very depressing.
