it’s all fun and games right now, but some people are actually afraid about a possible world war breaking out

it doesn’t matter how many times they’ve threatened before, we should take it seriously each time

so stop with the “cain’t nobody mess with ‘murica” ignorance and privilege and think about what it truly mean if america/sk had to go against china/nk

think about what sides the other countries would take

think about lives that would be lost

think about the long-term repercussions of a nuclear war

think about the last time the your 'murica got involved in a nuclear war

and also maybe think about what would happen if donald trump had control of those nuclear missile

The FINAL EPISODE of our Paper Mario playthrough over at Press Buttons ‘n Talk is here, and it’s an extra special EXTENDED episode, as expected of a GRAND FINALE.

If you’ve been watching since the first episode, thank you for taking this journey with us, it’s been a blast.  If you haven’t, why not start now

On Monday, we’ll be starting new adventures with new games, stay tuned.

I wish there was a way for me to be here without actually not being here. Where I can come and go and crash like the seashells against the shoreline that don’t always make it home.

i forgave you before you even apologized, but every time i think about it i get sick and wonder if i really do forgive you or if i just would do anything to make sure i didn’t lose you, even if that meant swallowing down every single angry thing i wanted to scream at you. // it feels like my throats on fire and i can’t eat a full meal anymore, but you’re still here. and id rather have me struggling to hang on than not have you at all.
