Ye ‘Old Monday crapfest

This is illegal. So is this. Just so we’re clear: you don’t have a right to chicken. It’s a privilege. Groping people without their consent is just wrong, though. Without their consent, that is.

Now, this bothers me, on the other hand. As someone who has been in the military, I can tell you that this is a poor idea. Soldiers are not the same as police officers, and do not have the same -as loathe as I am to say it -sense of ‘compassion’ that the police do. Soldiers are trained, for the most part, to kill. Military Police, if they’re on a base security track rather than the field track, are for the most part just like your average cop. Non-combat arms guys are laid back, but like any soldier, generally follows orders. And they’ve all seen the movies where the compassionate soldier lets the sick girl through the gate, leading to the end of the world. They don’t want to be that guy. I would recommend watching The Siege, and thinking about military presence on US soil. Imagine soldiers with loaded rifles on the street corners. I feel less safe, if only because soldiers can easily turn into thugs. Join the Army and go on a deployment if you don’t believe me.

10 Reasons to be Anti-Social. The hilarity builds to a crescendo, and hits on several points that very boring people will constantly bring up about their dull and shitty lives. These people are just assholes. This list basically encompasses everything I don’t like about certain people. I happen to be quite intelligent (and aside from that statement, more or less humble about it most of the time), but I crave human interaction -the more fucked up the better, most of the time. Human interaction can be, despite the sometime horror associated, worth having simply because of what you learn. I know I’m prattling on about some dumb tumblr post, but whatever. And this is coming from someone who generally spends several hours in solitude per day. Perhaps what people need is balance, not advice from the internet, but who knows.

Old Dominion’s Old Barrel Stout is kinda tasty. Vanilla and coffee tones. I like it and recommend it.
