DashCon: Separating Facts from Fiction – An Official Statement
Schaumburg, IL – July 11-13, 2014 – A lot has been said of what happened at our event this past weekend, and most of the information has come from those who weren’t actually there. At this time, our intent is to clear up any misconceptions, take responsibility for our faults in the matter, apologize to certain parties, and put as many fears to rest as we possibly can. Please bear with me, as this will be a rather hefty read. We want to be as transparent as possible.
I couldn’t remember how I had arrived at that dark place. The last thing I recalled was going to a student’s house, a nubile young thing whose beauty stoked the fires of my aging passion.
"How did I get here?" I said quietly, distantly to myself. This dank cave was no place for an esteemed professor of English literature, the most glorious and noble of all the Earth’s tongues.
There was a pool of water, and I washed my face in it. Staring at my reflection, I noticed a cast to my eyes, as if some great thing were floating upon their surface like a person could float upon the Dead Sea.
Suddenly, there she was. My student. The soft, ivory tone of her flesh still stirred something within me.
"You are here," she said cryptically. Something was wrong. Her… curves were in all the wrong places. There, in the darkness, it was as if the contours of her youthful body did not conform to the Euclidean laws of the universe, bending and twisting in ways out of the corners of my eyes. Her head tilted to the side and that mouth opened, revealing teeth and eyes far within…
She wasn’t like other girls, I thought, screaming.

We’re the generation of women who will teach their sons to act respectfully instead of teaching our daughters to beware
This is everything I stand for.

British researchers have created the ‘new black’ of the science world - and it is being dubbed super black.
The material absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of light, a new world record, and is so dark the human eye struggles to discern its shape and dimension, giving the appearance of a black hole.
Named Vantablack, or super black, it also conducts heat seven and half times more effectively than copper, and is ten times stronger than steel.
It is created by Surrey NanoSystems using carbon nanotubes, which are 10,000 thinner than human hair and so miniscule that light cannot get in but can pass into the gaps in between.
So my sister and mum were talking about periods and my dad said, “I don’t need to worry when my period is because penises don’t bleed.” I instantly responded, “They do if you cut them off.”
I have never seen my mum laugh that hard at anything in my life.
Okay who brought it back.
The Harry Potter movies added many scenes that I disagree with.
This is not one of them.
