Before I start writing:
This is a magnificent work of genius. I can see it sprawled open in my mind and it is perfect. All I need to do is write it down.
After I open a blank document:
I have two half-sentences and an emoticon. There is nothing else in my brain.

THIS IS WRONG! THIS IS UNTRUE!
Nowhere in the iOS8 update does it include ANYTHING of the sort - in fact, quite the opposite.

“On devices running iOS 8, your personal data such as photos, messages (including attachments), email, contacts, call history, iTunes content, notes, and reminders is placed under the protection of your passcode. Unlike our competitors, Apple cannot bypass your passcode and therefore cannot access this data. So it’s not technically feasible for us to respond to government warrants for the extraction of this data from devices in their possession running iOS 8.” [x]

THAT MEANS THEY’RE NOT GOING TO GIVE ANY OF YOUR SHIT TO POLICE. NOT THAT THEY BLOCK YOU FROM USING YOUR PHONE AROUND THEM - BUT THEY CANT FORCEFULLY TAKE YOUR DATA OR INFO
while the helpfulness of this CAN be questionable in some cases, it mostly means: The police will not be able to take your phones and delete the information on them.  They cannot hide or destroy what you have recorded. This is good.

If you’re a long-time fan of Resident Evil, then you probably have heard of cvxfreak (Alex Aniel) over the years.

Anyways, cvxfreak played the demo of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 at TGS. And he tweeted his impressions. Here they are:

  • REV2 has the movement flexibility of RE6 combined with the exploration elements from REV1. Character shifting is based off of RE Zero.
  • Revelations 2: Environments feel a lot like the earlier Silent Hill titles, particularly 2 and 3. Demo took place in a prison.
  • Revelations 2: There was one funny line of dialogue that was a direct throwback to CODE: Veronica. Very nice present for CV fans.
  • Revelations 2: My ears might be fooling me, but it seems that Alyson Court is not voicing Claire this time. :(
  • I played the Xbox One version of Revelations 2. Definitely feels like a crossgen game. Not sure whether it looks better or worse than RE6.
  • Revelations 2: I hope you liked Jake from RE6, because Moira Burton has the same “juvenile” speech patterns.
  • Revelations 2 definitely gets the core post-RE4 gameplay right with tight controls and a light emphasis on combat.

NOTHING ABOUT THIS MAKES ME SAD. Well. Except for hearing that Alyson Court will likely not reprise her role - that makes me sad. But I’m curious to know who they ultimately cast, and I look forward to hearing their voice in the game!

Raid Mode confirmed for Revelations 2
According to Spanish site Meristation, it has been confirmed that RAID MODE (with online Co-Op) will return in Resident Evil: Revelations 2.
Once again, Raid Mode will be more action oriented than the regular campaign mode. With a constant wave of powerful enemies. Players will be able to unlock new content in that mode. Such as new characters and weapons.
Source (Spanish): Meristation

Well thank god for this. I can now play with friends.

"College as explained to me in high school" vs. "College as experienced firsthand"

In high school they told us:
There will be no grades in a class except the midterm and the final, so you have to study hard because failing one test means you fail the class.
Once I was in college a professor said:
Hey, you guys are working really hard on your third paper, so I'm just going to cancel the final and give everyone a hundred on it.
In high school they told us:
In college, class always begins exactly at the scheduled start time. If your class is at 9 AM and you get there at 9:01, the doors will be locked and you'll be out of luck, especially if it's the day of the midterm or final, because then you get a zero.
Once I was in college a professor said:
Does anyone mind if I start class at 3:35 instead of 3:30? These elevators are really slow and I want to have time for a cigarette before I teach for 90 minutes.
In high school they told us:
Every class you miss drops you a full letter grade in college courses.
Once I was in college almost every professor said:
You can miss three classes without a penalty, and a few more if you have a Doctor's note. Sorry to be a hardass, but you automatically fail if you miss more than ten days of class.
In high school they told us:
If you do have papers, your professors just lecture and put the assignments on the syllabus. You're completely responsible for remembering the deadlines, they won't remind you. All your professors will do is lecture and the rest is up to you.
Once I was in college a professor said:
Okay, so your next paper is in two weeks! I'll keep reminding you in the interim, but I just want to make sure you have enough time to do it! Let's run through the structure I want to see real quick, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or come to my office hours!
In high school they told us:
You have to use MLA formatting and if you make any mistakes in your citations, it'll be considered plagiarism. You'll be expelled and probably sued.
Once I was in college almost every professor said:
Please do not use MLA, it is awful, we use either APA or Chicago here because we are not 14 years old.
In high school they told me:
There is no excuse for an absence. NONE.
In college I called a professor and said:
I'm really, really, really sorry but it's -18 before windchill and I have to walk two miles to get to class.
The professor said:
You stay inside and stay safe. Here's what we're reading today. I'll quiz you next week and if you can get a 90% I'll mark you present. I know you live off-campus, do you have food?
In high school they told me:
Your advisor is just for academia, not personal problems.
In college my advisor called me:
Are you okay? I haven't seen you in class in two weeks and I know you have depression. I can drop off your work if you'd like. Please call me and tell me how you're doing even if you can't get to class.
In high school they told me:
Don't argue. You think this is bad, wait til college.
In college all but one of my professors said:
You wanna argue, do it in a civil manner. We didn't get here today without 5000 years of healthy debate.

Filed under all of this is true I had to miss one class in a 50+ student class because my eardrum ruptured and my professor did everything she could to make sure I had notes for my missed class
