So who else wants the Falcon’s origin movie?
Origin movie, solo movie, don’t care as long as he’s the main character ZOMG best thing about that movie, and there was a lot to like about that movie.
Having to google internet slang your friend is using because you have no idea what the fuck it means.
Science is a way to call the bluff of those who pretend to have knowledge. It is a bulwark against mysticism, against superstition, against religion misapplied where it has no business being. — Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark (via thechapterfourblog)
like basically any time some 14-year-old nerd on the internet is just so happy to jump down the throat of someone using a common phrase that isn’t technically correct, i just want to pat them on the head and quietly revoke their internet access until they’re old enough to know nobody gives a shit…
I don’t recognize the United States government as even existing. —

I’m not terribly sympathetic to the sort of tax cheat who offers grand explanations for why he shouldn’t have to pay taxes like everybody else. If you’re going to be a dick about paying taxes, own it like an honest crook. Or deny it like a rationally self-interested crook.
But this is even sillier. It’s one thing to want to be left alone. It’s another level of dickery to insist that you have a right to exploit public resources without following any rules.

"YOU’RE NOT MY REAL MOM AND DAD IM A PRINCESS AND ONE DAY MY REAL ROYAL PARENTS WILL TAKE ME AWAY" - What Clive Bundy sounds like in my head.

In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.
