reverse werewolves. wolves that turn into confused but excited humans every month at the full moon and run around doing weird human stuff until they wake up the next day in the middle of an office with a suit loosely draped over their wolf form
nothing pisses me off more than the fact that 90% of women’s jeans have non-functioning pockets but baby clothes have proper pockets? what are babies carrying around that i’m not? baby wallets? fuck off
Thongs i hate not having: weed. Have been asking housemate to introduce me to her new guy, butvthey keep forgetting, and are now too sick to call them, and i am stuck sober on a saturday night. Ugh. Sobriety.
If lack of empathy doesn't make you a bad person and being an asshole does, what qualifies as 'being an asshole?'
I’ve talked about this at length, but here is an example:
Jane possesses normal to high levels of empathy. She cries at sad movies and those Sarah McLachlan infomercials. She volunteers at her church and is usually pained when her friends go through difficult times. However, Jane’s actions do not always reflect her feelings or ideals. Jane has a habit of causing trouble by gossiping about her church friends, even though she tries to stop. She often explodes and screams at her children, which frightens them. Once, she was caught stealing a necklace from her mother “for sentimental reasons,” since it made her think of happier times. Jane was genuinely wracked by guilt after all of these incidents. She was not pretending when she told her pastor about some of it through choking sobs. But all Jane’s guilt and empathy won’t fix her relationship with her mother or help her friends and children heal from her abuse.
Luna has a condition that causes an empathy deficit. In the past, Luna has had no problem lying, cheating, stealing, or injuring others. These things don’t cause an uncomfortable amount of guilt. She thinks objectively, however, that they might have personal consequences for her. She also knows they might negatively impact society. Luna recognizes that she and her friends have to live in her town/country/world, so she abides by some sort of objective moral code, even if she doesn’t always “feel it in her gut.” When her friends or family are in pain, Luna often finds that while she may not always cry or feel a visceral reaction, she can mentally sympathize with what they’re going through. She enjoys the company of others, and in order to preserve the relationships she has with people she’s fond of, she is kind to them even if she sometimes finds it hard to care.
That was longer than I intended. I hope it made a bit of sense!
a team in last year’s robotics class forgot to comment out a line of joke code so during the final their robot completed the assigned task in autonomous mode, stopped directly in front of the professor, printed “HEADED HOME, MOTHERFUCKERS” to its LCD, and drove back to base
I need proper sex education in America because when I casually mentioned to my friend that we couldn’t get together for coffee because I had to take my daughters for a doctor’s appointment to check on their labial adhesions (a common anomaly in which the labia fuse together;…
"How religious are you?" is one of the worst questions you can ask a person that practices religion because, how do you accurately measure someone’s level of faith? It’s not possibile. Every single person’s level of faith, of any religion, is never the same. Just like two snowflakes are never the same. Some days one’s faith feels high, some days it feels low. It’s not something that can be measured. So please don’t ask it.
This is a reminder that the Montgomery Bus Boycott lasted 13 months and the Civil Rights Movement took over 10 years, so next time you want to tell us to “get over Ferguson”, “its been long enough” “You’re not making any difference” remember that.
Apparently getting laid makes me a much better CSR. My job should look into a company sponsored sex worker program for CSRs. If getting fucked on the reg makes us better at our jobs, its worth every penny.
i hate when people complain about how technology is “ruining everything.” i have over 200 pictures of my dog on my phone and i can send them to my friends when they are sad. how is that ruining anything. why do you hate happiness
A writer for the new york times interviewed a series of people who had survived jumping off the golden gate bridge. Every person she interviewed admitted that about two thirds of the way down, they realized that every seemingly meaningless problem that caused them to jump was fixable.
Every single one.
THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT
Clearly the cure for depression is bungie jumping.
