My name is Splat. Or it was, at least. That used to be the name of my main in World of Warcraft but I haven't played that character in over a year.
Ask me anything
This blog used to mostly be screen caps from WoW and Minecraft, but lately it's been politics (I'm registered Independent), education (I'm a teacher), and things that are adorable. Essentially if it makes me mad or happy it will go here.
The "Suicide Rust Bucket" name was coined by Slow Wolf and comes from my tendency to take warriors (& paladins, and now a DK too) into places they really shouldn't go. I die often, but usually enjoy the process. The journey's more fun than the destination.
It is a part of mankind to play games. We played in the Stone Age. We played in Roman times. It’s an escape from the everyday grind. Every day we work hard and we make mistakes and we are punished for those mistakes. Games take us to another role where you can make mistakes and you don’t get punished for them. You can always start another game. Klaus Teuber
We can tell our children that school is important until we’re blue in the face, they’re not stupid. They see the loudest applause is for the kids on the field. They know teachers are paid poorly and don’t drive fancy cars. They know people plan Super Bowl parties but mock the National Spelling Bee. In other words, they see the hypocrisy, and we can’t expect society to correct itself. If we want to have any lasting influence on the way our kids approach education — the way future generations approach education — then we have to grab our pom-poms and paint our faces and celebrate intellectual curiosity with the same vigor we do their athletic achievements.
