Hope everyone had a chance to dry out after this past weekend.

At the risk of sounding like your dad, please be prepared for more bad weather in the next couple weeks and make sure there are batteries in the flashlight. Your mother and I just love you and we worry about you, that's all.

@TAMUCOMPLIANCE IS JUST THE BEES KNEES The mothership has hit the offseason pretty hard too, but they find ways to amuse themselves just like the rest of us. Recently that involved asking Texas A&M Assistant Director of Compliance Brad Barnes about NCAA violations committed by action movies. This is wonderful because a) our compliance department is awesome and b) the NCAA has actually investigated at least three of the violations listed in the article. (Hint: one of them rhymes with Yurassic Schmark)

YOU CAN TELL BECAUSE OF THE PIXELS We engaged in some digital imagery trickeration yesterday because we are bored and also very lonely. Recently outed rcb05 has beveled everything in sight and is now wanted for maiming his cat at 45 degree angles. I took a leisurely stroll through the archives and discovered evidence that GBH predates not only the university but human society as we know it. We still have our first credentials denial letter carved into a stone tablet.

BREAKING: PEOPLE ARE DUMB AND INSENSITIVE San Francisco 49er QB Colin Kaepernick used an image of the catastrophic flooding in Houston to talk some trash for some reason. He has since deleted the photo and apologized, and rather than defaulting into OFFENDED AGGIE MODE let's take this as an opportunity to reflect on just how easy it is to look like a total crapball on social media. Before Tweeting anything, try to ask yourself (at least) the following questions:

  • would I be horrified if this was on the front page of a newspaper in the morning?
  • are my genitals visible in this photo?
  • am I making light of a situation where people are dying?
  • is my name Darren Rovell?
If you answered "no" to all of these questions, then Tweet away friend!
