Guys, I actually live in a state that is dumb enough to inadvertently outlaw chocolate, rubbing alcohol, saffron, and echinacea as technically “dangerous drugs”. The fuck.
apparently fox news specified for their confused viewers at home that “chechens are not caucasian”, which is perhaps the most succinct summary of why it’s a stupid term I have ever seen in my life
i really fucking hate how much of a neurotic, pathetic mess university makes me xoxo
Aaaand days like today prove to me even further why people who study international relations/politics are unbearable fucks. Even the vaguely left mourning Thatcher, criticising anyone who criticises her (or refuses to feign sadness) and saying ‘rejoicing in death is cowardly/despicable’ lol pls where the fuck was your condemnation of celebration of death a few weeks ago when Chavez died? Or when Hussein was killed? Or any leader of the South who is extra-judicially murdered, often with Western interest backing? Where was your ‘No Criticism Allowed!!!’ moralising in those circumstances? I’m not glad Thatcher’s dead, but I’m sure as fuck not sad, to me the only thing to be ‘glad’ about is that someone who was clearly quite ill no longer is suffering. Beyond that, no fucks are given about her death. The worst part is this hero-worship and glorifying of someone who was most definitely not without faults, and this idea she is now beyond reproach or criticism. Nope. Just nope. Should probably just cut my losses and go home before I have to deal with my Global Security lecture…
2:30 to 2:48 of ‘a tooth for an eye’ is life affirming.
guys i’m sorry but we need to talk about how funky madness’ cover of swan lake is.
