MARTHA ONLY LEFT CAUSE SHE HAD TO GET OVER HER CRUSH ON HIM

I’m sorry, I usually try not to let these things get to me, but may I ask you what the fuck? Five seasons later people are still reducing an amazing character like Martha Jones to a goddamn crush and I’m sick of it.

How about you take the time you waste on making such an uncalled statement to rewatch the third season? Right from the start, we can all see that this girl is the pillar of the family—everyone, even her parents, throw their problems at her and ask for a solution. She’s a big girl, living on her own and knowing full well exactly what she wants to dedicate her life to.

Not enough of a reason to find her likeable? Don’t worry, that was me talking about the first episode only.

RHYS:

I’ll go later - the beans are almost done.

JACK:

The beans are almost done.

The room darkens, a single spotlight on Ianto.

IANTO: 

(singing)
Remember when my girlfriend tried to assimilate me?

How she threw me in a puddle after her killing spree?

Despite my body lying there limp, we cannot omit

the fact that we had time back then to swap a little spit.

The world was almost taken over by machines,

but we can’t bang now because of bloody beans.

(Ianto moves over to Rhys and stands awkwardly by his shoulder. The spotlight widens to encompass the two.)

(speaking)
Sooooo, how the beans doing?

RHYS

(clueless)
They’re just beans mate. No need to rush it.

 The spotlight focuses again on Ianto. He moves dramatically upstage.

IANTO:

Rhys! Haven’t you read the script?

This episode will be my crypt.

 Soon, I’ll be in a body bag,

the least you can do is let me shag. 

No time for shagging, feat. Rhys and his beans

You are beautiful. Never change.

Want to attend college for free? It can happen if you learn German.

All German universities are now free to Americans and all other international students. The last German state to charge tuition at its universities struck down the fees this week.

Even before Germany abolished college tuition for all students, the price was a steal. Typically semester fees were around $630. What’s more, German students receive many perks including discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.

In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”

Actually, German universities were free up until 2006 when they started charging tuition. That triggered such a crush of criticism that German states began phasing out this policy. Lower Saxony was the last holdout.

It’s too bad that politicians in the U.S. don’t feel that a college education is worth supporting appropriately. State aid to the nation’s public universities took a nosedive during the 2008 recession and education funding remains well below those levels. The average state is spending 23 percent less per student than before the recession, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Actually, state support has been declining for public universities for a quarter of a century. Using an interactive tool from The Chronicle of Higher Education, you can see how state government subsidies have cratered at individual institutions.

With the average undergrad borrower now leaving school with more than $29,000 in debt, the free ride in Germany can look awfully tempting.

How to handle the language barrier

German is not an easy language to learn. Fortunately, however, there are international language programs in Germany, which have become very popular with international students before they tackle obtaining a degree in a different language.

What’s more, an increasing number of German universities are offering degrees in English. These are often called international studies programs or in some other way have the word international in their title.

This is actually making me cry…it’s one of those times when you realize that your own government just truly, honestly, does not give a shit about your wellbeing in any way.
