Litmus test?

Zooey: Yeah, I know. It’s soon, but…
Denise: Who cares? Peter’s a doll, and he goes down on you like six times a week. What are you waiting for?
Peter: Wow.
Haley: Marry him. Don’t wait. Lock that tongue down, girl.

I Love You, Man

I bet they’re not the only one

I really think the American education system needs to have a second crack at my 22-yr-old.

You’re special

As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has–or ever will have–something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.

Just add water

The Nature of This Flower Is to Bloom
Rebellious. Living.
Against the Elemental Crush.
A Song of Color.
For Deserving Eyes.
Blooming Gloriously
For its Self.

To thine own self…

It’s about the hell we live through and how it scars our lives… but to discover at the same time that you have everything that you need to live here, you’re perfect, and you can get through, just the way to be. That’s what “Down Here Below” is about. It’s a prayer and it’s a lamentation… about an elusive god, one whose face you can’t see, but you believe, and you know that she’s always there.. If you do not see yourself in terms of being all-powerful and all-knowing, and…work to be that, to be excellent, you live a sad life… I don’t do anything anymore for effect, or to please anybody other than myself.

-Abbey Lincoln, from interviews/extras DVD for “Nothing but a Man”

And neither the moon landing nor the Holocaust were faked

Ohio really did go to President Obama last night. And he really did win. And he really was born in Hawaii. And he really is legitimately President of the United States. Again. And the Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy. And the polls were not skewed to oversample Democrats. And Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election to make conservatives feel bad. Nate Silver was doing math. And climate change is real. And rape really does cause pregnancy sometimes. And evolution is a thing! And Benghazi was an attack ON us, it was not a scandal BY us. And nobody is taking away anyone’s guns. And taxes have not gone up. And the deficit is dropping, actually. And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. And the moon landing was real. And FEMA is not building concentration camps. And UN election observers are not taking over Texas. And moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as Communism.
