hey zoophagous I found some of your art…
This stupid thing…
I posted this thing to tumblr like a year or so ago and ever since then it’s been circulating and collecting notes and being stolen by fucking idiots left and right.
Mostly the kinds of slack jawed jackenapes you see with little fucking annoying tags attached to it all “FOLLOW ME FOR MORE SOFT GRUNGE” or “PALE BLOG” and I’m like this drawing of a fucking wolf I did on a piece of scratch paper with a fucking white gel pen is literally none of those things, you are an idiot and your parents are disappointed in you.
The kinds of fuckwits who reupload shit for notes instead of hitting the fucking reblog button are like that package of bacon you forgot about in the back of the fridge.
Honestly, I can’t even be mad at the stupid note-greedy fuck who slunk around the internet and stole this picture because it’s probably been ripped off by like twelve Chinese shitty merchandise resellers by now making them into cheap buttons and prints on the backs of child slaves because that’s just how this shit works.
But seriously man, reuploading shit for notes? Go fuck yourself you need to have your fucking internet privileges revoked until you learn to be less of an insufferable shit.
This is even worse than when I discovered my fish tank was infested with snails. At least snails are cute and have redeeming qualities.
Assassin snail? Throw them into kaiju’s tank?
Also I know your feels. My betta tail guide was stolen and horribly edited and posted on instagram by some brat and she was saying she drew it herself. Then said she found it on google. It doesn’t show up in google search, I looked.
I have two assassin snails that are doing their jobs very slowly. It’s maddening. Also fuck art thieves man.
Since us pansexuals, bisexuals, and asexuals “don’t exist,” we are able to walk through other planes and worlds of non-existence. This is why so very few of us can be found during winter and summer break; we are likely taking summer classes at Hogwarts or vacationing in Isengard-gard-gard.
So shoppers at Wal-Mart were getting angry at Chris and the other cashiers because everyone had to evacuate the building.
The wall was only collapsing, no big deal.
But man, they had to get those sweet deals.
Shoulda just let the ungrateful asses get crushed.
Lots of articles out today stating Kim Jong-Un got 100% of the vote in the North Korean elections
All of us who have seen the post floating around tumblr lately with facts about North Korea know that there’s only one person on the ballot.
How can they even call that an election, and why even bother reporting it when there’s only one possible option? Of course he won. He had no competition. Fucking duh. Why is yahoo news flooded with articles about it, as if it’s not exactly what was to be expected?
Because that’s how American elections work so they think it’s a good thing. In the US you can vote for Party A or Party B and that’s it. No names, no other parties.
At least in Canada the election is first-past-the-post style so you can vote for any party who gets enough ridings/seats, but that still isn’t true democracy as that means that population density counts more than overall voting does.
That’s actually not true. The U.S. has a bunch of Third Parties such as the Libertarian Party and the Green Party, and some candidates register as Independents meaning they’re not affiliated with a party. In addition, you can always write in a candidate if you don’t like any of the people/parties.
It’s true that our politics, especially at the presidential level but also generally at the national level, tends to favor the two major parties - Republican and Democrat. But even in these elections, Third Parties run (for instance, Ron Paul’s run many times as a Libertarian) and by taking a percentage of the vote that might have otherwise gone to a major party, Third Parties and Independent candidates can even effect the outcome of presidential elections.
Because we do HAVE more than two parties, that also means that people have the choice to NOT vote Republican or Democrat, but people just tend to anyway. A lot of the thought behind that is because either Republicans or Democrats usually win, most people don’t want to “throw away their vote” by voting for another party. This is, of course, a self-defeating philosophy. If people stopped fearing throwing away their votes and voted for the party they actually liked there could be a major upset and Third Party candidates could take more of Congress or even the presidency.
But TL;DR the US doesn’t just have two parties and we get a ton of candidate choices. I think there was like a dozen in the 2012 presidential elections.
On a more localized level, I’m a Minnesotan, and I remember when Jesse Ventura - a Reform Party candidate - beat the two big-name Democrat and Republican candidates in the gubernatorial elections.
I was just a 17-year old kid from the Bronx with dreams of becoming a scientist, and somehow the world’s most famous astronomer found time to invite me to Ithaca in upstate NY and spend a Saturday with him.
I remember that snowy day like it was yesterday. He met me at the bus stop. He showed me his laboratory at Cornell University. Carl reached behind his desk, and inscribed this book (Cosmic Connection) for me:
For Neil Tyson,
With all good wisdom to a future astronomer.
- Carl Sagan
At the end of the day, he drove me back to the bus station. The snow was falling harder. He wrote his phone number, his home phone number, on a scrap of paper. And he said, “If the bus can’t get through, call me. Spend the night at my home, with my family.”
I already knew I wanted to become a scientist, but that afternoon I learned from Carl the kind of person I wanted to become. He reached out to me and to countless others. Inspiring so many of us to study, teach, and do science. Science is a co-operative enterprise, spanning the generations. It’s the passing of a torch from teacher to student to teacher. A community of minds reaching back from antiquity and forward to the stars.” —
Neil DeGrasse Tyson, in the most inspiring moment of ‘Cosmos’
The best thing that ever happened was definitely during “The Message”. I think for some reason it wasn’t on the gag reel. It was possibly the best piece of acting I’ve ever seen, which is the three-sixty [360 degree camera rotation] that Tim [as director] did while everyone was listening to the farewell message from Tracey [played by Jonathon Woodward]. And Nathan is standing with Zoe, looking kind of stricken - this is his old friend - and the camera pans around to Kaylee - and Nathan’s sitting next to Kaylee, looking kind of stricken in another way. And he managed to duck under the camera and get to every single member of the cast and just look really sad [laughs]. And some of them just could not keep it together and some of them did. But I’ve got to tell you - it’s hard to describe. And then when it finally panned down to the body in the coffin, Nathan was lying in [Woodward’s] arms, looking stricken. It was unbelievable - not only hilarious, but technically proficient. He really put some thought into it. But that’s Nathan.
