What good, if any, is the study of the liberal arts, particularly subjects like philosophy? Why, in short, should plumbers study Plato?

My answer is that we should strive to be a society of free people, not simply one of well-compensated managers and employees. Henry David Thoreau is as relevant as ever when he writes, “We seem to have forgotten that the expression ‘a liberal education’ originally meant among the Romans one worthy of free men; while the learning of trades and professions by which to get your livelihood merely, was considered worthy of slaves only.”

"

Scott Samuelson on why he teaches Plato to plumbers – fantastic meditation on the importance of the humanities beyond the “elite.” Pair with cultural icons on how the humanities make us human. (via explore-blog)

17. Kalia

Kalia is the daughter of Kastaka and Keet, and is also known as the GreatGrandbaby Shamu. At a young age Kalia become very ill, which initially prohibited her from bonding with her trainers. She enjoys being close to her mother and becomes upset if the two are separated for long periods of time, but did not meet her father until she was 7 years old. Kalia is very smart- she has learned to catch birds by regurgitating fish to attract them. Kalia’s owners, SeaWorld, recently came under fire for artificially impregnating this young whale at the age of 8, and experts have condemned such unnatural treatment. The baby is due in December.    

Kalia is definitely NOT only 12 feet long. When I saw her in summer of 2013 laid out beside Kasatka, Kalia was only 2-3 feet shorter, which places her at about 14-15 feet long. She only looks so much smaller because she lacks the girth of the larger whales.

06. Freya
Freya is named after the Norse goddess of fertility and love. Despite her namesake, out of five pregnancies, just one calf survived: Valentin, with whom she is very close. She experienced moodiness following each stillborn, which may indicate depression. Freya has a unique appearance, with a dorsal fin that leans to the right, and a white scar on her side from a tumor that was removed. A YouTube video of her attacking a trainer during a 2008 performance has been viewed by over 6 million people.

Take five minutes to read about Freya, one of the world’s captive orcas.

Me: “..and never asked Rudolph to join in any Reindeer Games…”
4yo: “Why didn’t Rudolph just ask to play with them?”
Me: “……”
(MIND BLOWN)

One quick question from a 4yo turns a story of simple bullying into a deeper, more human story of self exile and the isolation of social anxiety.

Except that the lyric is “let poor Rudolph,” not asked. And why is this being discussed in late January?

Baked some iPhone cookies to trick cops into pulling me over, then I just take a bite and ask if cookies are against the law.

To be fair, cookies are a huge distraction when driving.
