For Values Of Appropriate Equal To Market-Clearing
I despise what Halloween has become.
The Jobs question.
A topic that seems to be on everyone’s mind today is jobs: How can I keep mine? Where can I find one? Who’s going make them? Why do they seem to be in such short supply? The question not be asked enough is why do we need them?, Why do people need to be managed to make a living? and what stops people acting independently with autonomy?

a snobby pet peeve
tehmeg: i cringe when people say “chai tea,” as in “i’ll have a chai tea latte.” no. just no. chai is the hindi (and farsi, though it’s pronounced slightly differently) word for tea, so when someone says “chai tea,” what they are really saying is “tea tea.” to refer the particular tea that we in the west have come to know as “chai,” one can say “masala chai.” I’m glad I’m not...
Don't poke the wasps' nest.
howfreeitis: Of course I am angry. Every young woman is angry. Every young woman is angrier than she has ever been and ever will be. Every young woman holds on to eons of anger, of the ancestral anger of young angry women before her. Every young woman is angrier than when she was a confused child and angrier than when she was a mercurial teen. Every young woman will continue to be angry without...
1. An incompetent individual; one who errors frequently. ‘He is such a fuck up.’ 2. A severe mistake. I feel good about myself. I live with no shame or guilt because there is nothing wrong with me or how I live. I may trade for my benefit but I don’t degrade myself for anything or feel compelled by an addiction. I reject the ‘fuck up’ mentality. I wrote (or maybe...

archaicauturgy: What if the Council for National Policy was more powerful than the Bilderberg’s? What if Alex Jones is CIA agent? What if the Gunpowder Treason was staged, and Guy Fawkes was actually working for the King by way of a man named Cecil? What if NASA wants us to believe we never went to the Moon? What if the threat of Aliens will someday lead us to World Government? What if Ron...

coeus: Excuse me, my good sir, I seem to have more money on my person than I care to. Would you kindly unholster your weapon and relieve me of my burden? No, no, I cannot simply give you the cash, are you daft? Please, I beg you, pick up the gun, threaten me menacingly with kidnapping and death, then I will give you the money. No? You will not? Do you not understand how people take money...

The lion and the unicorn hold hell like it’s not hot. That’s why the lion and the unicorn need more money for the pot. Pains for the pauper who fears not for what he’s got. My toy drills an’ a corker, would someone like a shot?

I don't need anyone. I just need my books.
zenofawesome: Imagine you could pick any one person from tumblr to spend a whole day with? And distance didn’t matter, you’d be transported to wherever they are. You would talk about how much you love food, converse about your favorite movies, play video games together, and listen to your favorite music, and just confirm what you always thought; that if you and that person ever met, you’d...
