I’M NOT GONNA LIE THIS RIGHT HERE WOULD BE AN AMAZING STORY IDEA
LIKE HOLY HELL IMAGINE A SECRET SERVICE OF WISH AGENTS, EACH ONE SPECIALLY DESIGNATED TO CARRY OUT A CERTAIN PERSON’S WISH
I WANT THIS TO BECOME A THING PRONTO
I just found this gem on facebook and it is glorious
i showed this to my brother in the coast guard and his only response was ”I was sailing with a captain who altered our course so we could get a better tv signal. The Yankees were playing.”
I’d do that. Go Yankees, Pens, and Steelers.
goodomensandtea asked: what else do you have going on now that you're on break?
Homework and a lot of shit to do around the house/with family.
"The United States, locked in the kind of twilight disconnect that grips dying empires, is a country entranced by illusions. It spends its emotional and intellectual energy on the trivial and the absurd. It is captivated by the hollow stagecraft of celebrity culture as the walls crumble. This celebrity culture giddily licenses a dark voyeurism into other people’s humiliation, pain, weakness and betrayal. Day after day, one lurid saga after another, whether it is Michael Jackson, Britney Spears [or Miley Cyrus], enthralls the country … despite bank collapses, wars, mounting poverty or the criminality of its financial class.
Our culture of flagrant self-exaltation, hardwired in the American character, permits the humiliation of all those who oppose us. We believe, after all, that because we have the capacity to wage war we have a right to wage war. Those who lose deserve to be erased. Those who fail, those who are deemed ugly, ignorant or poor, should be belittled and mocked. Human beings are used and discarded like Styrofoam boxes that held junk food. And the numbers of superfluous human beings are swelling the unemployment offices, the prisons and the soup kitchens.
It is the cult of self that is killing the United States. This cult has within it the classic traits of psychopaths: superficial charm, grandiosity and self-importance; a need for constant stimulation; a penchant for lying, deception and manipulation; and the incapacity for remorse or guilt. “
— Chris Hedges, “American Psychosis”, a piece more relevant today than ever before.
This is why I despise “fame.” Such a sick twisted obsession that deeply unsatisfied people amuse themselves with and are rewarded by the worship of even more shallow and deeply unsatisfied people.
Me in compsci:
Looks like me in ochem, but with more passing out in class.
That was actually beautiful for a poorly drawn comic…
bittercityprojectssll asked: Jesus Christ read a newspaper
Wow. I have, an watched the news. I realize it was probably racially fueled that he didn’t get convicted, but the jurors did cite evidence that he was under attack when they let him go due to self defense. I also realize that Florida’s self defense laws are inherently shit, but the law is the law. Go change it if you want, but from evidence that the jurors and judge have cited, it was self defense. Do I think he shouldn’t have been liked up? No. I think he should have at least been given voluntary manslaughter, but we weren’t (at least at the time) given the facts the jurors were. We all assumed he was guilty. And that (while justified) was also racially fueled.
You’re allowed to read a newspaper as well.
