How to Become Sticky With Parachutes

Wonderful seismographs
leaping out of a half-eaten sandwich
projecting from the wooden spoon coming out of your wrist,
coming out of your arm, which is part of the esoteric whole
of you. Let’s sink into this tea and think about all the art
we could make together, if you would move in with me.

Davepeta said that the Dave side of them felt right about having ROMANTIC feelings for Karkat. Also are you saying that the whole part with Roxy asking Dave if he had ever kissed anyone/was in love while Rose was egging him on was just nothing? Come on, man.

Again man, I’m with you guys, I don’t ship Davekat but I do think it’s canon, but I’m the facts guy, I’m just giving facts and different ways they can be read, gotta try to be impartial.

Just spent literally the entire 30 mile ride from my apartment to the college (and the 5 minute stop at Huck’s somewhere in the middle to get drinks) telling my mom the entire plot of Ninjago from Garmadon being bitten by the Devourer up to Morro possessing Lloyd in S5.

The best part? The whole time she was glancing at me to let me know she was listening, humming at me when I’d stop for a little bit, making actual commentary on it and asking questions. She didn’t even know the show existed before today but when I started talking about it she listened and didn’t make me feel like I was being annoying by explaining and I think everyone (and especially every mother) should be like that because nothing hurts more than having your interests dismissed by your parents when you try to talk about them.

Like for real, from the time we got into the car, I started talking about it and I didn’t stop until we got to the college. When I told her about the whole thing at the end of S3, her response was “And this is a children’s show?” with an eyebrow raised. Even if she wasn’t really interested, she acted like she was. She also said, when I was talking about LORD Garmadon for the first time, “Okay, hold on a sec kiddo… I’m sorry, but this ‘Lord Garmadon’ just makes me think of, uh, what’s-his-face from Flight of Dragons. Ahmadon? No, uhh… Ohmadon!” And she kinda smiled (and so did I because I love Flight of Dragons and just yeah) and then said, “Okay, go on. So he was working for a guy named Chen?”

And just
Ugh
Why can’t more people be that supportive of their children’s interests?

I mean like, I’m 17 and she still lets me blab her ear off about cartoons and anime and “this story idea I just had that I need to talk about or I’ll forget” like I’m still a little kid. She told me once that she doesn’t get most of the stuff I talk about, but she listens anyway and I just love my mom so much I’m sorry I’m ranting-

My favorite part of the whole ‘communists are hypocrites because they use technology created by capitalism’ argument is that it’s literally a logical fallacy called ‘argument ad hominem tu quoque’. From Wikipedia,

“Ad hominem tu quoque (literally: “You also”) refers to a claim that the source making the argument has spoken or acted in a way inconsistent with the argument. In particular, if Source A criticizes the actions of Source B, a tu quoque response is that Source A has acted in the same way. This argument is false because it does not disprove the premise; if the premise is true then Source A may be a hypocrite, but this does not make the statement less credible from a logical perspective. “

Sound familiar? Maybe all these 'rationalist’ capitalists should brush up on their basic argumentative logic.

ideal life would maybe be working some menial job that i don’t have to think about after i come home but in another country where i don’t speak the language. also i’m erased from everyone i know’s memory ,that’s probably the most important part of the whole thing. and i don’t know what tumblr is
