California has become the first state to require students on college campuses to receive active consent before all sexual activity.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday signed into law a bill that will impose this new standard for consent at all colleges that receive state funding, including all public universities and many private institutions where students receive state grants.

Consent can be conveyed by a verbal “yes,” or signaled in a nonverbal way, but lack of resistance or objection cannot constitute consent. …

The new law will also offer other protections: universities will be required to offer on-campus victims’ advocates; victims who come forward to report a sexual assault may not be punished for under-age drinking; and all institutions will be required to teach incoming freshmen about sexual assault and consent during orientation.

Way to pave the way California! I had the best sex ed ever when I attended 9th grade in that state. Seriously - it was everything sex ed should be and also taught by the driest, least sexual seeming old dude. It was like a sitcom or something. Huzzah!

My new work computer is this big honkin’ fancy ass desktop Mac and I couldn’t enjoy it more. The big screen! The ease of use! Re-learning how all the short-cuts! Fun!

Although, apple e-mail is kinda whack. Gmail is vastly superior.

If y’all use a decent box mix and use melted butter instead of vegetable oil, an extra egg, and milk instead of water, no one can tell the difference. I sure as hell can’t. 

Also, if you add a little almond extract to vanilla cake, or a little coffee to chocolate cake, it sends it through the roof. 

This concludes me attempting to be helpful.
