President James Garfield Dies
On this day in 1881, President James Garfield succumbed to the wounds inflicted 80 days earlier by an assassin, an enraged and potentially mentally unstable political-office seeker. Despite Garfield’s doctors’ best efforts, they could not find and remove the two bullets lodged in his body. He had only been in office for just under four months.

This month the original 1984 Ghostbusters movie is being re-released in over 500 theaters across the US! (Details here)
To celebrate such an awesome event we’d like to share this TAUNTR photo of President Abraham Lincoln “taken during his brief, yet memorable stint as a paranormal investigator and eliminator circa 1864.”

Educational comparison: present republican candidates to presidents past. →

Very cool infographic brought to my attention by Jen Rhee (twitter: jenicarhee) comparing data of present Republican Presidential candidates education with historical preseidential data.  Cool stuff to think about.  How much does education matter?  Do you need to go to college to get a job?  Do you need to go to college to change the world?  Do you need to be educated to change the world?
