Paul Walker, 40, made famous in the “Fast & Furious” racing movies, died Saturday as a passenger in a sports car accident in Santa Clarita, Calif., near Los Angeles.

And I guess this sorta fits in with the concept of irony… how institutes of higher learning are becoming ever more hotbeds or irrational gibberish:

‘Preferred’ pronouns gain traction at US colleges

Inviting students to state their preferred gender pronouns, known as PGPs for short, and encouraging classmates to use unfamiliar ones such as “ze,'”sie,” `’e,” `’ou” and “ve” has become an accepted back-to-school practice for professors, dorm advisers, club sponsors, workshop leaders and health care providers at several schools.

I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to stick with “Hey, you. Dumbass.” Trying to make me do otherwise would be culturally insensitive.

    If you were to be crushed to death in by a pile of documents in some aerospace company’s archive, how would you like it if people just responded by saying “there’s irony for ya…”?

      I’d neither like it nor dislike it. Being dead and all kinda removes such concerns.

      No–that’s irony for ze..get it right ou!
