From  27 Attention-Getters For Quieting A Noisy Classroom
http://www.buzzfeed.com/weareteachers/27-attention-getters-for-quieting-a-noisy-classroo-h0x

To read later.

My freshmen last year would get what I call “adorably loud,” in which they’d just we talked excitedly about something they’d be talking OVER each other and the noise level would be too much.  So a few times I’d say, “Hey guys, you’re doing that thing when you’re trying to out yell each other.  Please don’t.”
Which turned into, “Hey guys, you’re doing the thing.”
Which turned into, “Hey guys!” and someone responding, “We’re doing the thing!” 
Accidental classroom management FTW!

"It’s my first time here. I wanted to come to - you know you don’t go to Comic Con without going down on the floor and seeing it all, and so the way I came up with doing that was Spider-Man." - Daniel Radcliffe at the 2014 SDCC

:O

Well played, Daniel. Well played.

awkward how reassuring i find this

well ya duh society shames speech patterns associated with young women

from a communication standpoint though, speech fillers are shown to be good, especially in casual speech, because they indicate that the speaker is just thinking but is still speaking, so whoever they are talking to may not interrupt.
speech fillers include “um” “ah” “like” and basically any sound or word that one uses when speaking casually.

"Growing up, I didn’t read novels by women. It’s not that I didn’t want to. It’s almost like I didn’t think that I needed to or, I guess, I didn’t know that I needed to. I was perfectly happy in a world contained by men. I adopted the posture of the brooding male as my own. I was Salinger, I was Kerouac, I was any male protagonist in a novel that one of my boyfriends recommended. I didn’t know that there was a specific female sadness so I was content with relating to a generalized one. And in a way, reading these novels was less of a way to relate and more of a way to learn how to be the type of girl that these male novelists liked. One of my first ambitions wasn’t to be a writer – it was to be a writer’s muse."

Side note: For a moment there I thought she was going to say “You really should go fuck yourself” but I suppose this is a lot more graceful and polite :P

SPENT is an online game about surviving poverty and homelessness. Players must make the difficult decisions necessary to live for one month on $1,000, often having to choose between equally disagreeable options. The game ends when players either run out of money before the end of the month or make it through with money left over.
