let me interrupt your studying with some rick santorum

Yeah, hating on Rick Santorum is unoriginal, but it still incenses me every single time.  Yeah, the internet is a free place for everybody.  Yeah, there’s stupid people on the internet.

This site.  Makes you want to kick things.  Cuss, strangle, stab, etc.

I actually read the entire first FAQ page wondering if this was some very exaggerated troll RPer…but nope.  Either they plan on taking this RP very seriously…or someone actually shares Santorum’s views.

If anyone reads that site, hopefully you’re at least progressive enough to realise ALL most of this person’s views are considered ultra-conservative/idiotic.

But the insinuation about socialists being racists grates me so much because I’m a left-left winger.  Not only is it hypocritical, it’s just plain wrong.

Also I’m guessing the “most of my gay friends” must mean ‘most of his nonexistent gay friends’.

Some gems I found on the site.

Respect, My Little Pony fandom.

Because that's what we've spent several weeks learning in Modern History...

And this one is a little mean…

edit – ARGH why is there an error in the 2011 3u answers?!  Okay, better get off this tumblr before I flood this post with a lot of ‘gems’; I’d probably end up screenshooting the whole site.

edit edit – I can’t resist.  Here’s the last one.

edit edit edit – I see why I can’t stop reading now.  All this idiocy…it’s sorta amusing.  In a ‘let’s find the most irrelevant and blatantly wrong reasons for social phenomena and try to annoy as many people as possible who aren’t male white-supremacist Christians who hate blacks, non-heterosexuals, sex, women, etc.’ sort of way.

I don’t like this expression ‘First World problems.’ It is false and it is condescending. Yes, Nigerians struggle with floods or infant mortality. But these same Nigerians also deal with mundane and seemingly luxurious hassles. Connectivity issues on your BlackBerry, cost of car repair, how to sync your iPad, what brand of noodles to buy: Third World problems. All the silly stuff of life doesn’t …disappear just because you’re black and live in a poorer country. People in the richer nations need a more robust sense of the lives being lived in the darker nations. Here’s a First World problem: the inability to see that others are as fully complex and as keen on technology and pleasure as you are.

It might just be the pervasiveness of agriculture, but there’s this alarm bell in my head that goes off every time I see people following each other on tumblr and reblogging each other’s posts and stuff because it reminds me of inbreeding D:  I don’t have (a) tumblr, but it from most of the ones I’ve seen (i.e. people of similar age to me) it seems like an exercise in reblogging pictures of:

a) pretty girls with usually hipstery/floral/nude coloured/cute clothing;

b) corny couple pictures;

c)

d) teenage angst related bits of text;

e) pictures of high-heeled shoes;

f) screenshots of movies with funny/life/love moral captions;

g) what is seen cannot be unseen and stupid but mindblowing questions 8D

I was reading Crystal’s blog (and Amanda’s linked post) and I felt very admiring of their articulate-ness :D

We were at the dinner table, and my mum was talking to my sister, when I noticed a cockroach on the window ledge.  I drew their attention to it and we all watched for a bit as the cockroach edged forwards slightly as though judging the distance, stepped backwards and then leaped off for dear life towards the ground as my mum got up to get a tissue to squash it.

And of course, this made my day:

As did this NGAWWW ><

Also suit pyjamas sound awesome.

My most proud achievement this holidays is getting a 150 point bonus in Arcade Mode Fruit Ninja – bomb lover, nine fruit combo and combo god 8D
