He read with nothing but appetite—without discrimination or judgment, sometimes without understanding.
“The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating…
…and you finish off as an orgasm.”

The Strange Case of
Science does not purvey absolute truth, science is a mechanism. It’s a way of trying to improve your knowledge of nature, it’s a system for testing your thoughts against the universe and seeing whether they match.
What’s the difference between a commercial rapper and a pile of shit? ‘The pile of shit does not peddle drug-induced lyrics to the people!’
The sun in your eyes made some of the lies worth believing
Because I can lie beautiful true things into existence, & let people escape from inside their own heads & see through other eyes.
Everything on the tour went drastically wrong. But at least there was a tour for it to go wrong on. - Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow

God is, but at the same time God also is not. The Universe is governed by blind chance and at the same time by a providence with ethical preoccupations. Suffering is gratuitous and pointless, but also valuable and necessary. The universe is an imbecile sadist, but also, simultaneously, the most benevolent of parents. Everything is rigidly predetermined, but the will is perfectly free. This list of contradictions could be lengthened so as to include all problems that have ever vexed the philosopher and the theologian.
I’m tired. I’m tired of getting my ass grabbed on the dance floor and being told I “should expect it, sweetheart.” I’m tired of getting my ass grabbed, doing nothing about it and feeling ashamed for not reacting. I’m tired of saying “no thank you” when a man comes up behind me to start dancing and completely ignores my answer. I’m tired of again saying “i said no, but thanks” and still feeling their hands on me. I’m tired of having to move so they get the hint, and sometimes, even then, they don’t. I’m tired of saying “okay, sure” instead of “no thank you” just because I don’t want to deal with them refusing my answer. I’m tired because I know I’m not the only woman who deals with this culture.
Yeah, I kinda just stopped going to clubs and bars and then that ONE TIME I actually hit up a “safe” bar near Columbia University, I got my ass grabbed. What the fuck.
Absolutely disgusting. I don’t get it…I just don’t. I’m tired of this fucking culture and I’m not even a woman. Just hearing about some douche grab a girl’s ass makes me want to kick that fucker in the face.
Is the glass half full or half empty?
1 Are you sure it’s representing the concept of “half”? I mean, you do know that “half” is 50-50, right? Have you measured it precisely that there is like 50 percent versus 50 percent thing? I mean, really precisely? I demand a recount. And I need witnesses, too.
2 And if you put on a lot of effort and time and energy and money to really measure the content of that glass so that it is really “half” then I’m guessing you don’t have a life/girlfriend.
3 To think of it, why do you have to use that that kind of glass shape, anyway? There are hundreds of other models. And how am I supposed to know if it’s half full or half empty when that kind of glass shape does not really represent the concept of “half at the bottom and half at the top”?
4 What kind of liquid is that inside? Is that water? If yes, why do you have to use water for experiment? Do you realize how valuable it is for people in Africa, dumbass? They have to walk for kilometers to get “half” of a glass of water. And what will you do with the water after the experiment is over? Will you drink it? Uh-huh. I don’t think so.
5 If it’s not water, is it alcohol? If yes, are you mature enough to purchase liquor? If not, why not? Save water, see #4 above.
6 People from “Binary Group For The Conquer of the World” would like to have a word with you. Yes, they do exist and they’ll kidnap you.
7 Look, binary is the sickest and awesomest, dude! Did you hear that they sent messages to aliens in outer space using binary codes? Suck it, “half”!
(Editor’s note: There are 10 kinds of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those who don’t)
8 If we were to conduct this experiment outside, at noon, then if i were to spend too much time looking at the glass to decide whether it’s half empty or half full and the water inside were to evaporate because of the heat, would the result of the experiment be considered scientifically official?
9 Why do you have to ask me the question anyway? What kind of idiot are you, thinking that my whole plane of existence, or character, or my future, or whether I am to be rich or the opposite, is determined by a certain percentage of water inside a glass?
10 I have no interest to know if the glass is half full or half empty. Just fill the damn thing already or throw away what’s left of it if its’ dirty.
