- Alfred: “I’ll get this to Mr. Fox, but no more. I’ve sewn you up, I’ve set your bones, but I won’t bury you. I’ve buried enough members of the Wayne family.”
- Bruce: “You’ll leave me?”
- Alfred: “You see only one end to your journey. Leaving is all I have to make you understand, you’re not Batman anymore. You have to find another way. You used to talk about finishing a better life beyond that awful cape.”
- Bruce: ”Rachel died believing that we would be together, that was my life beyond the cape. I can’t just move on. She didn’t, she couldn’t.”
- Alfred: ”What if she had? What if, before she died, she wrote a letter saying she chose Harvey Dent over you? And what if, to spare you pain, I burnt that letter.”
- Bruce: ”How dare you use Rachel to try to stop me.”
- Alfred: ”I am using the truth, Master Wayne. Maybe it’s time we all stopped trying to outsmart the truth and let it have its day.
- Alfred: I’m sorry..”
- Bruce: “You’re sorry? You expect to destroy my world and then think that we’re gonna shake hands?”
- Alfred: ”No.. No. I know what this means.”
- Bruce: ”What does it mean?”
- Alfred: “It means your hatred and it also means losing someone that I have cared for since I first heard his cries echo through this house. But it might also mean, saving your life. And that is more important.”
- Bruce: “Goodbye, Alfred.”
- Batman: Hey I'm going to disappear for 8 years.
- Bruce Wayne: Hey I'm going to disappear for 8 years.
- People of Gotham: Shut up Bruce, we're trying to figure out who Batman is.
- Batman: I'M BACK!
- Bruce Wayne: ME TOO.
- People of Gotham: NO ONE CARES BRUCE. WHO THE FUCK IS BATMAN?
in the catholic ghetto, born and raised
at the playground is where I bullied most of the gays
relaxin chillaxin communion all cool
oppressing some minorities outside the school
when a couple of gays believed that they could
believed they could get married in my neighborhood
I said that they can’t and the world got mad
I told them i’d be the best president they’d ever had
Is that too much to ask?
On Thursday, the same day Louis Freeh, the former director of the F.B.I., issued his damning report about the cover-up of Jerry Sandusky’s sexual crimes by the Penn State hierarchy, the N.C.A.A. lowered the boom on — are you ready for this? — the California Institute of Technology.
One of the world’s great engineering schools, Caltech is never going to be mistaken for Penn State as an athletic force. With fewer than 1,000 undergraduates, it is a Division III school, which means, among other things, that it doesn’t grant athletic scholarships. Its basketball team ekes out about five wins a season, and its baseball team, according to The Times, has lost 227 games in a row. At Caltech, unlike your typical athletic powerhouse, “student-athletes” truly are students.
Part of being a student at Caltech means “shopping” for courses for the first three weeks of each trimester. Students are allowed to sample classes before they have to register for them. “During those three weeks,” read an N.C.A.A. press release issued on Thursday, “because they were not actually registered in some or all of the courses they are attending, some students were not enrolled on a full-time basis.” And part-time students, you see, are not allowed to play intercollegiate athletics. Between 2007 and 2010, according to the N.C.A.A., this happened with 30 athletes in 12 sports.
It would be hard to imagine a more frivolous violation of the rules — or one that could do less harm to the integrity of college sports. What’s more, Caltech turned itself in after a new athletic director realized that the practice of shopping for classes probably violated N.C.A.A. rules. Yet the punishment imposed on the school was severe: three years of probation, a postseason ban in a dozen sports, the erasure of wins and individual records that were gained with ineligible athletes, and more. Indeed, Caltech was cited for “a lack of institutional control,” which is pretty much the worst thing you can be accused of in N.C.A.A.-speak.” —
If nothing happens to Penn State, let there be cries of outrage.(via inothernews)
