Hell themed Restuarant

I want a Hell themed restaurant where the serving staff are dressed as incubi and succubi and the manager sits on massive throne of skulls in the back. If you have a complaint about the service or the food, you must approach the throne. The items on the menu have disturbing names of what they actually are (Burgers are Torn and Seared Cow Flesh) and much like the rain forest cafe, every 20 minutes there is a thunderstorm effect overhead… except its with the groan of lost souls.


Dear Assata Shakur

You were right. My dear, you were absolutely right. You and the former Black Panther party foreseen the injustices that we as a people would face but unbeknownst to a new generation we THOUGHT we came a long way because of the little privileges that was given to us. We are literally facing the same scrutiny and injustices that you faced some 35 years ago the only difference is we have cameras and even with these act of violence against us caught on cameras and are broadcast worldwide not one person has been indicted for cold blooded murder.

Assata do we to your children have to pick up weapons to protect ourselves from those sworn to protect and serve? Do we your children have to spill their blood to retaliate against a system that sees no value of our lives unless it’s serving them? Assata must we too flee from social persecution? Or should we stand tall and fight?

Assata, the fight has become tiresome. Our bodies are bruised, our vision is blurry, our bones are fragile, our dreams have been deterred and our minds warped but yet we still fight one another for the scrapes they feed us from the dinner table. Assata your children need you. We need the mother that challenged social injustices and lost but never gave up. Assata , mother, I can never imagine the trauma, pain or suffering you beard witness too while locked up for six and a half years but it didn’t break you. Assata we need your help mother.

Mother, your children now wear the mask that grins and lies, we use them to hide our cheeks and shade our eyes because our eyes now burn from smoke, from sorrow, from injustices and our skin charged with anger. Mother when will this stop? When will we stop burying our children, your grand children. Mother lately I’ve been hear the voices of our ancestors crying out from their burned, hung and watery graves, screaming for revolution, screaming for justice, screaming for unity but mother am I the only one hearing it. To be honest it’s now becoming a feeling, an unshakeable feeling that’s now manifested into an emotion or a reaction.

Mother, I know you hear the torment of your children, i know you feel the cries and screams our voices echoing through the walls of your womb, Your womb the place we once found refuge but couldn’t stay. Assets, Mother, you were a runaway slave of the 20th century and now i….us….we, your children are captive slaves of the 21st century and our chains are no longer made with cast iron, and our hips are no longer bullwhip of raw cow hide peeling the flesh from our bones, but rather they are brands that keep us chained, bullets that tear our flesh.

Dear Mother what deed have we committed? Are the sins of their fathers using our blood as means of payment? Mother, Mother, Mother!!!!….can you hear me?

Dear Assata (she who struggles) Olygbala (for the people) Shakur(the thankful one) , I’m listening. 

Mother please write back….

Ever been stuck between two roads?
Have you ever been so terrified about something you can’t change?

Ever wonder what life the human next to you could be living?
Can you cry out loud and tell everyone how you feel?
Can you say the exact words your hearts are telling you to feel and make them understand?

Ever realized how small you are, when you stand in the midst of endless crowds of strangers?
Did you ever looked in the television screen and wondered, why powerful people are powerful and why are you, you?
Ever think of that?

Daehyun was thrown in jail. He lives in orange jumpsuits now. Because of his threats and the things that he knew, once the prosecutors got their claws on him, he was never going to escape. The only thing he set his life for have stabbed him in his back. And it’s a lonely life he chose. He was standing behind brick walls, never to see freedom. His cases were confiscated and retained. He realised now that avenge is difficult, when you’re up against the wrong people. He spent hours looking out a small window, smiling grimly. “The powerful stays powerful.”

Why don't you eat meat??

I would never EVER purposely eat an animal, I don’t care what kind of flesh it is: chicken flesh, cow flesh, pig flesh, etc. and why? The same reason you wouldn’t eat a cat or a dog. Animals are animals, there isn’t a compassion label on each individual animal. If you wouldn’t eat a dog then why the hell would you eat a pig? The difference is species and you choose to be blinded by the fact that one of them is placed on a higher pedestal than the other. All animals have something in common, they have feelings, they can sense and have emotions. Maybe you think one is cuter than the other. Fair enough, but that doesn’t mean you can kill one for being less attractive than the other. Maybe I think dogs are cuter than cats, but I’m not fucking insane enough to eat one for being less “good looking”

No see, Wanda, a vegetarian will always mean ONLY people who do NOT eat any meat. But the thing is, what does "meat" even MEAN, really?! I don't consider cow flesh meat, I only consider it meat if it's from birds. So I'm still a vegetarian as I type this while seasoning my giant steak on the grill!!

People already do this, like pescatarians who still call themselves vegetarians. 

Which, as a meat eater, I never got. Cause like, fish is still the body of a dead animal. And also delicious. But still.

Am I someone who teaches women to behave submissive and have big boobs?

Am I brain dead because I have big boobs? And when I fall in love am I creepy?

Am I stupid for showing skin and my boobs on a hot summer dinner night at the beach?

And the only reason for people to like me is not because of my personality or intelligence, but because I have big boobs?

Am I not allowed to be feminist because of what I wear?

Too covered? Too revealing?

Do you assume I am a pornstar whose only objective is for guys to sexualize me?

Do I sexualize myself because I love to play with make up, colors and clothes?

If antis want to make this a fucking social-political problem, I might as well do it too.

Hinata is a fictional character… and it doesn’t matter if a guy drew her like that, the fact is: Hinata has always been covered and never made fun of, or being the center of attention because of her big boobs (in manga). But the things you antis say, hits home. Because I’ve heard them in one way or another, and the things people write, are how they think…. and if this is how they think… then there’s a problem.

“Saggy tits, chunks of flesh, cow, brain dead, floaters, watermelons, gross, lustful… cover them because you should take advantage of them, ewww! Cover them… no one wants to see'em” I’ve heard them all.

People who make a big deal out of my breast are the ones who can’t see past anyone’s body. People who blame the victim for the crime. People like the antis made me wear T-shirts everyday only to find out that I can’t hide them, I can’t “lose” them with exercise, I can’t make them dissappear woth clothes… the only thing I have to do is to deal with them, to take precautions. It didn’t matter if I was wearing T-Shirts or a cleavage, I was the center of nasty comments on the streets.

I used to cry a lot about it. A lot. The Media, didn’t help to represent people like me. People like me are in the same box as overweight people on movies, anime, manga: the comedic relief, the dumb, the airhead, the ubber-sexy hentai-girl-proud-of -her-boobs girl… the lonely and desperate, the one who doesn’t deserve love because… she is too big, too perfect, too proud.

Maybe that is why I defend Kishimoto so much. Because he finally gave me a character that was an underdog with big boobs. Someone who no one expected nothing, covering so much her skin as if she had something to hide: her body. But she proved that she could change to be someone she, herself, liked. In the end, her boobs was not the center of attention, kishi never gave a direct fanservice, only what it was necessary to show. He gave Hinata a well developed personality, as well as a developed body.

And yes. Busty girls can develop even bigger breast after children. And no. I do not have children and I was never the dream of any guy except for misogynist guys who couldn’t take their eyes and their mind off my cleavage… the same ways these antis do.

I have found comfort in the way Hinata fans defend her type of body, while I have never EVER have been represented or protected by the anti-Hinata squad. YOU ARE NOT FIGHTING FOR FEMINISM. YOU ARE JUST VENTING YOUR ANGER ON A FICTIONAL CHARACTER WHILE STATING REAL PROBLEMS OF HOW SOCIETIES THINKS OF WOMEN LIKE ME.

It took me a long time to gain my confidence and find a character I could relate, only to see these kind of comments, comments I hear every single fucking day on the streets, or from guys who refused to date or shamed me, or made inappropriate jokes because of my body.

GOD BLESS GUSTAV !!!

Are you feeling overwhelmed and anxious? Take a deep breath and read this.

Today I felt very overwhelmed and anxious with the assignments I have and their due dates. I decided to find a good article to read in order to calm myself down. I felt much better while I was reading it, and then I thought one of you guys could be needing this too. Below is a copy of this article as well as its source. I hope this article helps you feel better too. 

13 Questions To Ask Yourself If You’re Feeling Overwhelmed

“ You skipped breakfast, your boss moved your deadline to the end of the day and you forgot to wear deodorant (again!). What do you do when it all feels like too much? Start by taking a deep breath and asking yourself a few of these questions.

1. Why Am I Overwhelmed?
"Overwhelm” is increasingly common as demands on human attention increase exponentially. The human brain just wasn’t designed to handle the environment we inhabit. For the vast majority of world history, human life – both culture and biology – was shaped by scarcity. Food, clothing, shelter, tools and pretty much everything else had to be farmed or fabricated, at a very high cost in time and energy. Knowledge was power, and it was hard to come by; for centuries, books had to be copied by hand and were rare and precious. Even people were scarce: Friends and relatives died young (as late as 1900, life expectancy in the United States was approximately 49 years). This kind of scarcity still rules the world’s poorest regions. But in the developed world, hundreds of millions of us now face the bizarre problem of surfeit. Yet our brains, instincts and socialized behavior are still geared to an environment of lack. The result? Overwhelm – on an unprecedented scale. 
– Martha Beck

2. Am I Really Busy Or Does It Just Feel This Way?
Most of us judge how busy we are by how much we have to do. When there are too many things to do, we think we’re busy, and when there isn’t much to do, it feels like we’re not busy at all. But in fact, we can feel busy when there isn’t that much to do, and we can feel relaxed even when there’s a lot going on. The states of “busy” and “not busy” aren’t defined by how many things there are to do. Contrary to popular opinion, there is no such thing as multitasking; the brain can tend to only one thing at a time. Being too busy or not being busy is an interpretation of our activity. Busy-ness is a state of mind, not a fact. No matter how much or how little we’re doing, we’re always just doing what we’re doing, simply living this one moment of our lives.
– Norman Fischer

3. What’s The Priority Here?
Think about it: Humans are the only creatures in nature that resist the pattern of ebb and flow. We want the sun to shine all night, and when it doesn’t, we create cities that never sleep. Seeking a continuous energetic and emotional high, we use everything from exciting parties to illegal chemicals. But natural ebbs – the darkness between days, the emptiness between fill-ups, the fallow time between growing seasons – are the necessary complements of upbeats. They hold a message for us. If you listen at your life’s low points, you’ll hear it, too. It’s just one simple, blessed word: Rest.
– Martha Beck

4. What If I Don’t Have Enough Time?
There are two problems with time. The first one is that after a certain number of hours fatigue inevitably sets in. After that, you make more mistakes, you get into more conflict with co-workers, you’re less creative and you’re less efficient. The second problem with time is that it’s finite, and most of us don’t have any of it left to invest. Our dance cards are full. For example, in an effort to get more done, one of the first things we’re willing to sacrifice is sleep.

But consider this disturbing fact: Sleeping even a single hour less than our bodies require reduces our cognitive capacity dramatically. Much as we try, we can’t fool our bodies. Consider this statistic: Even a single hour less sleep than you need to feel fully rested takes a significant toll on your capacity to think clearly and logically when you’re awake. Sacrificing sleep is self-defeating. So, what’s the solution? It’s not to manage your time better. It’s to manage your energy. 
– Tony Schwartz

5. Am I Surrounded By Energy Suckers?
Energy Suckers (a.k.a Negative Nancies, Debbie Downers and Sad Sids). These are the people who find the cloud around every silver lining. If you can’t cut them out of your life entirely, turn your interactions with them into a game. When my neighbor says, “I hate this horrible weather!” I say, “Isn’t horrible weather great? It means I don’t have to wash my car!" 
– Donna Brazile

6. Do I Have to Do It All By Myself?
Insisting on doing everything yourself burdens you and prevents others from feeling valuable and needed. Delegate more at home and at work, and free your time for things you love and excel at. 
– Julie Morgenstern

7. What Would It Take For Me To Just Say No?
Most people claim they give in to sudden requests because they hate letting others down. I say it’s more about not disappointing ourselves: We’re hooked on feeling needed. If we take a hard look at ourselves, we might see that we unwittingly encourage people to come to us for every little thing. Interruptions can also be a welcome distraction. Faced with an unpleasant task, we’re more than happy to turn our attention elsewhere. Finally, we often don’t say no because of simple disorganization. In a choppy and shapeless day, we handle disruption immediately because we figure, if not now, when? While it’s important to be reasonably accessible to the people you live and work with, you don’t want to spend most of your waking hours in helper mode at the expense of completing your own critical tasks. Even if you’re in crisis management or, for that matter, if you’re a stay-at-home mom, you need to prioritize requests. Otherwise you get trapped in a whirlwind of multitasking where you start many things and finish nothing. 
– Julie Morgenstern

8. Is My Stuff Taking Over My Life?
Every single person I have met tells me not only about their own clutter problems but about those of a family member, or those of a friend. Nobody seems immune. The stories are not dissimilar – papers and magazines run amok, garages overflow with unopened boxes, kids’ toys fill rooms, and closets are so stuffed that it looks like the clothing department of a major retailer is having a fire sale. The epidemic of clutter, the seeming inability to get organized, and the sense that "the stuff” is taking over affects us all. We are at the center of an orgy of consumption, and many are now seeing that this need to own so much comes with a heavy price: kids so overstimulated by the sheer volume of stuff in their home that they lose the ability to concentrate and focus. Financial strain caused by misplaced bills or overpurchasing. Constant fighting because neither partner is prepared to let go of their possessions. The embarrassment of living in a house that long ago became more of a storage facility than a home. This clutter doesn’t come just in the form of the physical items that crowd our homes. We are bombarded every day with dire predictions of disaster and face many uncertainties – some real and many manufactured. Think about the perils that we’ve been warned about in the last decade alone – killer bees, Y2K, SARS, anthrax, mad cow disease, avian flu, flesh-eating bacteria… the list goes on and on. We are also faced daily with reports of war, an unstable economy and global terrorism coming very close to home. Surprisingly, this endless barrage (its own kind of clutter) inspires many of the families with whom I work to finally take control of their own clutter. In an unpredictable, dangerous world that is out of their control, they look to their homes for stability – to get some degree of organization back into their closets, their garages, their home offices, their lives. This quest for organization is a deeply personal response to the feeling that the rest of the world is out of control. 
– Peter Walsh

9. But, I Want So Much. Will I Ever Be Enough?
When we are busy focusing on what we don’t have, we don’t pay attention to what we do have. Wanting is different from having. Wanting is in the future. It is based on an idea of what might make you happy in five minutes, tomorrow, next week. But having is here, now. Most of us don’t let ourselves have what’s in front of us, so we’re always wanting more. When you don’t let yourself have what you already have, you are always hungry, always searching, always restless. 
– Geneen Roth

10. Am I Breaking Out Because I’m Stressed Out?
As the mind-skin connection gains credence, beauty companies have seized on the new marketing opportunity, launching serums and balms that they say cater specifically to the effects of stress on the skin. Without any independent clinical trials to back up these product claims, dermatologists are skeptical about how effective they might be. But doctors do advocate paying extra attention to your skin during tumultuous times. “If you already use acne products, increase the frequency of application when you’re entering a stressful period,” says Fried. And because skin’s immunity is impaired when you’re under stress, making you more susceptible to sun damage, he says, it’s even more important to apply (and reapply) sunscreen. A bonus: Taking special care with your daily beauty regimen may help soothe your spirits as well as your skin. Fried conducted a study in which 32 women used an alpha hydroxy acid lotion on their faces for 12 weeks. Their skin felt smoother in the end, but the participants also reported feeling happier in general. “As soon as these women saw an improvement in their skin, it fostered a wider-reaching sense of optimism,” says Richard Fried, MD, PhD, a dermatologist and clinical psychologist. “Their feelings of stress or depression also decreased because they felt more in control – over their skin, their bodies, their world." 
– Jenny Bailly

11. Is All Stress Bad?
Short-term stress triggers the production of protective chemicals and increases activity in immune cells that boost the body’s defenses; think of it as having your own personal repair crew. "A burst of stress quickly mobilizes this ‘crew’ to damaged areas where they are likely to be needed,” explains Firdaus Dhabhar, PhD, director of research at the Stanford University Center on Stress and Health. As a result, your brain and body get a boost. A quick surge of stress can stave off disease: Studies suggest that it strengthens the immune system, makes vaccinations more effective, and may even protect against certain types of cancer. Small amounts of stress hormones can also sharpen your memory. In 2009 University at Buffalo researchers found that when rats were forced to swim – an activity that stresses them out – they remembered their way through mazes far better than rats that chilled out instead. The key, of course, is balance. Too little stress and you’re bored and unmotivated; too much and you become not just cranky but sick. “It’s important to pay attention to your stress thermometer,” and to stay below the boiling point, explains life coach Ruth Klein, author of The De-Stress Diva’s Guide to Life.

12. Is It Better to Fight Anxiety or Is It Okay to Be Nervous?
Accept that you’re having an anxiety moment – trying to squelch or deny it will only make it worse – and just focus on what’s in front of you, says David Barlow, PhD, founder of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University. If you’re at an interview, meeting or party, listen intently to what the other person is saying. Make eye contact. When it’s your turn to speak, be conscious of every word you say. If you’re at your desk, respond to overdue e-mails or tackle the pile in your in-box. Whatever you’re doing, take a few deep breaths to help let the anxious thoughts and feelings float on by. 
– Naomi Barr 

13. How Do I Stop Focusing on the Clock?
The elimination of time from your consciousness is the elimination of ego. It is the only true spiritual practice. Here are three exercises to help you move in this direction:

  • Step out of the time dimension as much as possible in everyday life. Become friendly toward the present moment. Make it your practice to withdraw attention from past and future whenever they are not needed.
  • Be present as the watcher of your mind – of your thoughts and emotions as well as your reactions in various situations. Be at least as interested in your reactions as in the situation or person that causes you to react.
  • Use your senses fully. Be where you are. Look around. Just look, don’t interpret. Be aware of the silent presence of each thing. Be aware of the space that allows everything to be. Listen to the sounds; don’t judge them. Listen to the silence beneath the sounds. Touch something – anything – and feel and acknowledge its Being. Allow the “isness” of all things. Move deeply into the Now.
– Eckhart Tolle"

If animals are simply resources here for our own pleasure, why do people always say they want slaughter to be, “more humane”? 

If it’s natural and normal for us to eat and use animals, why are people outraged at the idea of eating cats or dogs, or wearing fur?

It’s because you’re holding on to two conflicting beliefs: that killing and using animals is morally neutral, and that it is not. Anything that highlights this inconsistency in your beliefs makes you uncomfortable, and that’s cognitive dissonance. You use animal-tested shampoo in the bathroom and play with your cat in the living room. You wear leather shoes and complain about how terrible it is to buy real fur. You condemn the slaughter of dolphins in Japan and of dogs in Korea, whilst buying cow and fish flesh at the supermarket.

There’s only one way to remove this cognitive dissonance permanently, and that is to accept that the killing and exploitation of animals is not acceptable. Stop consuming the carcasses of dead animals. Stop using eggs, milk, and honey. Stop buying leather shoes and silk clothing. Stop supporting dog and horse races, puppy farms, pet shops, zoos, and aquariums. Fight for animals now the way you’ve always felt you should, but neglected to do because of social norms.

You can make a difference.

mafeesh  asked:

Hey Hank, I was listening to the Freakonomics podcast and they were talking about environmentalism, and one of the people on there said that the idea that people should use less paper is kind of counterproductive because if we're not using trees to make paper then people will just cut down the trees to use the land instead, so it'll lead to more deforestation. Kind of like how cows aren't extinct because we use them for food so we keep breeding them. What do you think about this argument?

Well, first, I’m not really concerned about cows going extinct…we created that species and they would likely not do very well in the wild. And, though I am very fond of cow flesh, I actually would prefer if there were FAR FEWER of them, if not none, because they are environmentally devastating. 

But the podcast makes a good point…in a world where harsh economics decides the value of things…trees having economic value is a very good thing, especially if regulations can prevent really dumb forestry practices (clear-cutting.) 

But that’s just today, right now. I think recycling has a place because (fingers crossed) there will come a time when there is no economic use for the forest except the services the forest provide when left alone (cleaning the air and water, preventing erosion, providing a place for recreation and tourism, protecting bio diversity). 

Economists would probably see that as crazy, but technology has carried us a long way so far, so I’m holding out hope.
