Today I learned about Pensacola Christian College, a college in Florida. As the name suggests it is a Christian university. The rules for this college are....interesting.

(All of this is crudely plagirised from their Wiki page)

 

"All students are expected to dress modestly, in conservative fashions and . . . men are not to wear effeminate hairstyles or apparel."

 

I wonder what they class as effeminate, are solely 'short back and sides' acceptable or would you get away with a moptop? 

 

"PCC also prohibits physical contact and interaction between unwed members of the opposite sex. For example, a chaperone and "day-pass" is required for a "mixed group" for students under the age of 23. Students over the age of 23 are not required to have a chaperone on a date, but cannot go to a beach or a park after dark and cannot "visit the home of an unmarried person of the opposite gender".

Most stairwells, elevators, and parking lots on campus are segregated by gender.

Other prohibited activities at PCC include "fornication, adultery, homosexual behavior, or any other sexual perversion. Also, any involvement in pornography or sexual communications, including verbal, written, or electronic."

"Most forms of dancing," profanity, hazing, discrimination, gambling, stealing and "witchcraft, séances, astrology, or any other satanic practices" are also banned." Students are also not allowed to use, possess, or "associate" with alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs.

Policy violations also include visiting movie theaters, patronizing unauthorized area businesses, being off campus after hours, being in a residence hall belonging to a member of the opposite sex, and engaging in social activities with members of the opposite sex as a group off campus.

 

It sounds like a version of a hell, like you can't even go to the cinema with your mates or use the same stair as a boy :O. Those poor people that are made to go there, I'd probably try and get myself kicked out, screw you parents, I'm going to be an actual grown-up and not be wrapped up in cotton wool from all the naughty things in the world like drink and stay out past 10.

My undergrad school had most of those rules. We could go to the movies, but the nearest one was far away so no one ever went. Yes, I chose to go there. I am not the same person as I was then.

There are people who feel better about themselves and their place in society for subscribing to such strict rules of behavior. As a wise old saying goes, it takes all sorts to make a world. If it works for them, it works for them... it seems awfully authoritarian to me... mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Fair enough, but I doubt many of the students would choose to go there of their own free will... from experience, young people in these sorts of situations usually have had that lifestyle pushed on them by their parents... Though as you say, if people want to live that way, that's their choice at the end of the day. Just seems extremely miserable from our perspective.

^One can always live that way without there being strict rules making that the only way of living that is permitted. You can choose not to go to the movie theater without being banned from it.

Well, I guess if you're choosing to go to that school then it is a choice... but yeah, like I said, seems awfully authoritarian to me.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 that makes sense. Many people would choose a sense of security in a cage over dangerous liberty, especially if it's all they've ever known or been guided not to seek their own path in life.

I've been researching the effect of music therapy on dementia and Alzheimer's Disease for a research project in school, and the subject is extremely interesting and heartwarming. I mean, it must be awful to forget everything that means something to you as you die slowly and painfully. Even though it hasn't been officially proven that music can reverse or improve Alzheimer's and dementia patients, music has been shown to reduce anxiety and fear and bring back old memories. Playing an instrument can even help someone regain part of their physical strength. We all already knew that music was powerful, but this is astounding. I've even read a story about a mid-stage Alzheimer's patient who was too scared to trust anyone, but when her music therapist started playing the first few chords of "Hey Jude " on the piano, she completed the phrase. They eventually got to the point where she and the music therapist would compose entire improvised pieces on the piano and she started to open up to her caregivers. Music therapy can not only help the elderly, but also those who have Autism, Down Syndrome, and other developmental disorders, along with those who have suffered from severe trauma in their past and the terminally ill can benefit from music therapy. It just seems like a way to truly make the world a better place. I've even thought about pursuing music therapy as a career (although I'd need to learn guitar first), the idea of helping others through one of my passions just makes me happy.

On 18th April 1930, those tuning into the nightly 15-minute news broadcast from the BBC (radio, TV was 6 years away, and then suspended for the war) at 8:45pm, were greeted by the news announcer (before newsreaders) with the words, "There is no news." They weren't on strike or anything, they just didn't think anything had happened that was worth reporting. For the rest of the news bulletin they broadcast the Wagner opera Parsifal being performed from the Queen’s Hall in London.

Oh, if only we could have days like those...

This wasn't today, but it wasn't too long ago and I found it interesting and worth sharing.

So recently I got Disney+ to watch Star Wars all I want.  I later discovered that The Simpsons was on there.  The show has always been a favorite of mine.  I've watched it since I was young, but I've never watched the series straight through, so I decided since I pay $7 a month for the service I'd go a binging.  One late night I finished season 2 and began season 3.  Upon starting the 3rd season, I noticed it started in episode 2.  However, I was too tired to care and ultimately forgot about the observation.

So the Michael Jackson episode is one of my all-time favorites, and when I was in season 5 I realized I hadn't seen it yet, which was odd because I was pretty sure it was in one of the more early seasons.  Although I figured I just hadn't reached it yet.  So recently I got to season 12, and one day in the car I remembered, how I still hadn't seen the Michael Jackson episode.  As a kid, we had both seasons 3 and 4 on DVD and I was almost positive I remember watching the episode on DVD.  I then remembered the missing episode 1 on season 3 on the Disney+ list and made the connection.

I googled it and discovered that the episode had been removed from the catalog after controversy with the recent HBO documentary on Michael Jackson.  Then right after I googled it I looked at season 3 on Disney+ and the episodes had been renumbered, making "Lisa Goes To Washington"(normally episode 2) episode 1 and every other episode in the season one less than it's normal position number effectively removing any trace of the episode's existence on the Disney+ streaming service.  Luckily I was able to retrieve my season 3 DVD box set from the moving boxes, and plan to watch the episode this week.  It's sad that the episode has been taken off of streaming platforms though.

That's daft. Unless every individual with similar accusations against them has been removed. I'd rather watch that episode than the garbage they are now shoving out under the name of 'The Simpsons'. Early 'Simpsons' is brilliant.

Agreed.  Disney should should just take season 12 on down, and replace it with the Michael Jackson episode.

Today I learned that The Wizard of Oz (specifically the book, not the movie) can be interpreted as an allegory on the Election of 1896 and the politics surrounding it, especially the era's conflict over bimetallism, which I find pretty interesting. The basis of the theory is that L. Frank Baum was an intense Populist and that the elements of the story are symbols for different things that affected politics at that time. 

From Give Me Liberty!: An American History (Third Edition) by Eric Foner: 

According to some later critics, the popular children's classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, published by L. Frank Baum in 1900, offered a commentary on the election of 1896 and its aftermath. In this interpretation, the Emerald City (where everything is colored green, for money) represents Washington, D.C., and the Wizard of Oz, who remains invisible in his palace and rules by illusion, is President McKinley. The only way to get to his city is via a Yellow Brick Road (the color of gold). The Wicked Witches of the East and West represent oppressive industrialists and mine owners. In the much-beloved film version made in the 1930s, Dorothy, the all-American girl from the heartland state of Kansas, wears ruby slippers. But in the book her shoes are silver, supposedly representing the money preferred by ordinary people. 

To add on to that, Dorothy represents the American people, led astray and lost due to political turmoil (the cyclone) and trying to find their way; the Tin Man represents the working-class, who were turned into heartless cogs in the "industrial machine"; the brainless Scarecrow represents poor, uneducated western farmers; the Cowardly Lion represents weak and cowardly politicians who barked a lot but didn't bite, but most specifically William Jennings Bryan; "Toto" is short for "teetotalers"; both gold and silver can take Dorothy to the Emerald City, ergo bimetallism; "Oz" stands for "ounce" (weight of gold or silver).

The Wicked Witch of the West could also be interpreted as the literal West, and her flying monkeys are oppressed Native Americans. But in this interpretation what does her sister, the Wicked Witch of the East (the one crushed and killed by Dorothy's house and has her silver slippers taken as well by Dorothy) represent? Also, in general, what does Glinda the Good Witch symbolize? 

The whole theory is kind of interesting in a weird way.

Would Glinda not be some kind of probably populist awakening, as she is the one who reveals the use of Dorothy's shoes to her? Don't get me started on any kind of intellectual exercise when I'm PWT or I might never sleep ahdn_john_08_gif @lovelyritametermaid

If silver represents money, couldn't the Wicked Witch of the East represent the moneymen on Wall St. (East coast); the bankers who crush the dreams and hopes of the ordinary citizen? And couldn't Glinda represent an encouragement to overturn an uncaring Capitalist system?

Interesting idea...
