Chick snaps in class, newsies blame Jesus.

Alternative title: This is your brain on drugs.

Some girl freaks out in college and has to be forcibly removed from class and taken to the hospital.  This is news... why?

"They were talking about natural selection. They were talking about peacocks and how females choose their mates by their most feathers and the woman started asking about how that killed all black people," said one FAU student.

Students say that's when the girl snaps, ranting and threatening to kill Professor Kaijura and several of her classmates.

Yep, kid loses her shit in class and it makes national news, media spinning hard so it seems like some fundie is getting all dangerous about Darwin again. Gotta be a headliner for sure, what with those kids getting killed in France the other day, gets some Christian action out there to make it look like "they all do it"..

Plus, you know, they had video. Ten pukes with iPhones and YouTube accounts made sure. Nice little bit of safe-to-show violence and swearing to titillate the ten o'clock news crowd, fill up two minutes of otherwise dead air on a no-news day.

It looks to me like too many lectures on The White Male Hegemony plus a diet high in recreational chemicals, but t'would appear nobody is going to let the facts get in the way of a perfectly good TV time filler.

I hate TV.
