real africa

the president of nigeria is about to fuck boko haram up and cut his own salary in half and criminalized female genital mutilation

the president of guinea built/is building infrastructure and school and wells all over the country and is decreasing youth unemployment exponentially

the president of cote d’ivoire made school mandatory of children ages 6-16 and banned plastic bags while also building ultra modern trasportation infrastructure

the future is for real in africa 

When I was really really really young I thought the hyphen in terms like African-American, Chinese-American, Asian-American, etc. were minus signs and I’d literally say “African minus American.”

Of course, I quickly learned I was wrong but then many years later, I started to think I was right all along.

autistic arnold cunningham
  • the first time we see him is when hes trying to speak to someone abt mormonism at the door, but ends up yelling too loud and saying the wrong thing
  • admits he has a lot of trouble making and keeping friends 
  • can be blunt (’i lie a lot!’)
  • has a lot of trouble telling when kevin is uncomfortable with him
  • nooo sense of personal space
  • huge special interests in sci fi and fantasy!! its how he tries to relate to kevin, and compares their situation to lord of the rings, etc. and probably used his sermons to infodump which is how so much star wars/lord of the rings/etc got in there
  • relates more to fiction than the real world, and has to use concepts he learned in fiction to understand the real world (ie, associating africa with the lion king)
  • repeating phrases he hears from tv/movies/etc, even if they dont exactly fit (’if you order now we’ll also throw in a set of steak knives!’)
  • takes some things literally (kevin regarding an epiphany: ’i woke up!’ arnold: ‘of course you woke up, you drank 12 cups of coffee!’)

A hellbeast that started with the optional prompt to design a character based on a food. I started there and went somewhere else entirely. We had hot buffalo chicken today > Fiery buffalo character > decided to use the “real” buffalo from Africa, which looks more similar to a bull > fire + bull reminded me of the brazen bull  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazen_bull    Colored pencils, 6″x7″  It emits a metallic, distorted bellow.

“You’re all idiots. Idiots who can’t see the truth. Africa isn’t real." 

"Of course, it isn’t,” Macie shrugged as she watched her nut job of a friend Luis pick the lock to their landlord’s apartment. 

“A continent full of poverty and starving people who all need our money, that can be gained through conveniently placed "charities” in the first world? It’s all crap.“

"Of course it is,” Macie said rubbing the bridge of her nose. She was starting to have a headache.
