Just wanted to let you know that I am nodding and chuckling right along with your #skinny steve can get it tag.
Good I am pleased GOOD.
For those of you who are not convinced here are some more reasons why skinny Steve can get it:
- no-gray area morality in a small, convenient carry size
- adorable doe eyes set in cute, floppy-haired head
- take-no-shit attitude with a dash of hurt/comfort potential
- actual hero in a world where no one will acknowledge it
- actual hero despite non-acknowledgement
- except for Buck and Peg, the founders of the Skinny Steve Fan Club
- so we’re in super good company
- greNADE SCENE GRENADE SCENE I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO TELL YOU THAT WAS THE SEXIEST, MOST TOUCHING THING EVER IT WAS LIKE MY HEART GOT A HARD-ON
In conclusion, big Steve is nice and all but I fell for skinny Steve first.
EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
***INSANELY PAINFUL SHRIEKING***
“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

They don’t like actual intelligent people on juries, they don’t want people who can actually think.
is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.
He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.
Hoo boy, we’re going deep down the rabbit hole with this one. I hope you’ll bear with me, as this
might bewill be a disturbing post. Here, have some shirtless!Seb as a precautionary measure:
He’s laughing at me because I’m kind of a masochist. Anyway, check back with him if you need to.
I have German heritage on both sides of my family - my paternal great-great grandparents came over sometime in the early 20th century (don’t know much about them) and my maternal grandmother grew up in Nazi Germany. Plus I was a history major specializing in European history from 1871 to the Cold War. So…I know some things. You could chalk up all that to another reason this movie was like catnip to me. That said, it will take a bit to unpack all of this, so bear with me.
The idea of there being a superior race was pretty much unheard of before European imperialism and the Atlantic slave trade. Before then, Europeans didn’t have much cause to compare themselves to the rest of the world. But over the course of the 17th-19th centuries, that small part of the globe came to control the remaining 85% of the world. Suddenly, they were faced with millions upon millions of “savages,” and had to justify their superiority. Their right to subjugate the rest of humanity.
holmesianpose This one is just silly, not only because it’s John C. Reilly singing but because it’s about a guy who had his legs shot off by a canon ball. I’m hoping this one doesn’t insire you to do anything drastic. Unless you were already planning on taking your story in the exact opposite direction of okay. Then it’s not my fault.
holmesianpose This one is for Sailor!John, cause he takes care of business.

I’m glad you liked it. Lol. I’ve got two albums worth of sea chanteys. It’s called Rogues Gallery Vol 1 & 2. I think most are on YouTube if you’re curious. I’ll see about finding another good one.
