Do you know what today is? Today is the 703rd anniversary of the execution of William Wallace, (the dude that Braveheart was about). (We're totally surprised that you didn't know that.) We don't necessarily have any way to tie William Wallace or his battle for Scottish Independence into this round-up, but we figured we'd mention it anyway, mostly because Braveheart, wildly inaccurate though it may be, is a totally kickass movie. So take this weekend to celebrate Braveheart, the movie. Or Scottish independence. Or Mel Gibson. Or whatever. We don't care, just read the articles below.

We're not mad they these classes exist, we're just pissed that no one is offering a seminar on Advanced Cracked Theories.
Notable Comment: rplay28 wonders "Is it smarter to get a general major or go get an associate degree in a field you actually like? I'm trying to decide." Well, that's a difficult question and a lot of variables come into play. First of all, it's important to realize that your degree will very rarely inform what you do for a living, especially an undergrad degree. Now, instinct will say "study what you like;" If you like art, be an art major. If you like underwater basket-weaving, get your tools together and invest in oxygen tanks and be prepared to spend the next four years in a pool. You may regret studying something you don't love. Having said that, if what you want to study isn't likely to get you a job post-graduation, it may end up doing more harm than good, as you'll end up with a very specific degree. It's also important to note that, if you love something, you don't need college to pursue it. If, for example, you're passionate about literature, being a business major won't automatically mean that you're never going to read or write again; if it's your passion, you'll pursue it on your own time regardless of what you study. You'll find a way. ... What? Were you all expecting something funny? The man came to us for help. Shit, we are nothing if not accommodating.

To find that ass, we typed "ass" into the image search of google, and that ass was the ass that popped up, (among other asses of course). It is, indeed, a terrific ass.
