"As they say, a mind (and 100k in tuition ) is a terrible thing to waste."

This quote is from the back cover of a book I am reading called Disorientation: How to Go to College Without Losing Your Mind. The book focuses on the Catholic student leaving for college but the guide is for anyone who is concerned about the growing "isms" on campus such as progressivism, multiculturalism, Feminism, Marxism, and much more.

The first section is entitled "Sentimentalism" and is written Elizabeth Scalia, aka The Anchoress. She has a quote at the beginning of the chapter that states, "Sentimentalism is an upbeat overemphasis on the inherent goodness of mankind that judges what is good or evil according to how well it accords with our feelings, or the feelings of people we want to impress."

Overall, it looks like a good book for someone just going to, or returning to college, who wants a guide on how to identify and cope with the liberal dogma that permeates most colleges these days.

Empathy quotient test

Vox Day linked to an empathy quotient test that gives a score on how high or low you rate on the trait of empathy. He scored a 23 which is fairly low. Me, I scored a 47, average for a woman. I suppose mine should be higher, given that I am a psychologist. Perhaps this explains why I always liked doing forensic evaluations--they don't focus on empathy, but rather objectivity (at least, they are supposed to).

You can take the test here
and see how you score.

People have been asking me how big the AR-15 modified to shoot a .50 BMG round was that I mentioned a few posts ago. Say Uncle says it's one Helen long. That's pretty darn big.
