Charity is given freely from the heart
so you have no choice but to live with my bitterness. When you force me to support your destructive causes I have every right to be bitter. You cheapen my generosity by using the guns and goons of the government to force me to give to your shitty programs. Just shut your fucking mouth and either listen to my bitter rants or ignore them like the fucking coward you are. It takes a horrible human being to force me to support causes you don’t even support.
Waaahhhhh, how dare you tax me to live in a first world country. I’M A FUCKING ISLAND I”VE NEVER NEEDED SOCIETY’S HELP! *cries bald eagle tears*
A screen grab preview(in this case of forward B deck) of the amazing graphic put together by Titanic historian Paul Lee of survivor accounts of the collision. Paul has collected all the available accounts of the moment of impact from survivors both from the inquiry testimony and accounts submitted to newspapers. He then pinpointed their location on the ship at the time of impact, which gives a great opportunity to easily view how people in different areas of the ship felt/heard the impact. The whole thing can be viewed here:
Other great articles Paul Lee has written on the Titanic can be found here
(also, not written by Paul Lee, but I’d like to throw out there this article as well since it’s a great, authoritative, anayslis of the time and sequence of lifeboat lowering by an exhaustive comparison of survivor statements)
"Razors pain you,
rivers are damn
Acid stains you, drugs
Guns aren’t lawful,
Gas smells awful,
you might as well live.”
"Travels, trouble, music art,
A kiss, a frock, a rhyme-
I never said feed my heart,
but still they pass the time.”
“If I don’t drive around the park,
I’m pretty sure to make my mark.
If I’m in bed each night by ten,
I may get back my looks again,
If I abstain from fun and such,
I’ll probably amount to much,
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.
Things that Tumblr has taught me about girls
Do you ever notice MRAs(or egalitarians if you will) constantly use the word logic or some variation of it in their blog descriptions(or even URLs, looking at you logicd among others). It’s like a desperate attempt to add more legitimacy to terrible, bankrupt arguments in the same fashion that conservatives think if they show tons of pictures of the flags and constantly mention the constitution it will somehow make their terrible positions more legitimate. Not to mention it de facto implies their opponents in argument,(i.e. feminists usually) are not using logic, which usually implies using emotion. Over emotional women you say?
Do you think that attempting to be logical is a bad thing?
Do you really think that attempting to be logical and presenting one’s self as attempting to be logical is a way of implying that women are overemotional?
No, see, most people of course assume they themselves are using their own logic, and if you want to even to pretend to take whoever you’re arguing with seriously you have to assume they are using their own logic since, you know, debate of ideas is kind of predicated on logic regardless on whether or not you think someone’s logic if flawed. To specifically list logic as part of a blog description like you and others do as if it was something special you’re specifically and deliberately doing just comes off as a veneer of smugness and conceit over a deeper insecurity.
As for the other part, I call them as I see them. This seems to be a phenomena that pops up near solely(although to be fair certainly not ubiquitously) on “egalitarian”/MRA blogs, and the demographic of people they argue their ideas with tends to be overwhelmingly all female.
The problem is that people often aren’t logical, and many are aware of this. Logic has specific rules and internal consistencies that many individuals’ thought processes do not. Calling ourselves “logical” is a promise; we have attempted, are attempting, and will continue to attempt to prevent our biases and prejudices and individual experiences from clouding our view of the truth. In contrast, many others are happy to ignore the facts and what actually makes sense in favor of what they already believe in. Calling ourselves logical does not necessarily imply that the individuals we hold discussions with are illogical, even though they frequently are.
If, hypothetically, I revealed to you that six out of the seven admins of PermutationofNinjas are not male, and that you’ve been talking to a female individual this whole time, would you change your position to more accurately reflect the facts?
Additionally, would you mind addressing some of the unanswered responses we’ve made in the past to your posts?
Actually if you are female your blog is a great reminder of the fact that women and men can equally share inanity.
I mean why are you going back to seek and reblog posts from 2 months ago egging for more responses after the initial back and forth had come and gone and weeks have gone by and most people forget about their brief debate encounter with random tumblr blog. It’s weird and obsessive-ish. I mean who does that. What do you want, to engage in another argument where we constantly reiterate our arguments with slight variations never actually changing the opinion of the other and then after the 12th reblog when someone finally gets exasperated and just moves on to other things in life and in tumblr, you can give a smirk to yourself and claim another victory in your head.
Are girls getting more beautiful or am I getting more gay?
i’m getting more gay
I know this is a super privileged thing to say and maybe tons of straight people say it to their eye-rolling gay friends and I’m just a cliche, but sometimes I wish I was at least bisexual or something. All the girls I know in my life are just infinitely more amazing and beautiful than the guys.
that last part i think is just true for everyone’s life around the world.
Here’s the thing about mentions of “7 million people”(or whatever number it is) are currently employed at the federal minimum wage and would benefit from a boost, it only includes people working at exactly or below the federal minimum wage. It doesn’t include people living in states with their own slightly higher minimum wages or people making 25 cents/hr above the minimum. To show the true extent of the how far wages have sunk and stagnated for people, here’s a graph on what would happen if the minimum was raised to just $9.80 over two years. Almost 30 million people would have their wages boosted just by having their wages rise to $9.80. It’s probably near an even 30 million now as this report was from mid-2012 and a lot of jobs have been added to the economy since then, and they’ve mostly been low wage.(taken from here)
Also, more fun graphs! Almost 1/2 of the people seeing a raise have some college education.
it would disproportionately help women
almost 30% of children would see a parent with a higher income
and a majority of workers are full time, further amplifying any increase in hourly wages
