I Want a Hamburger and a Nap

I was just introduced to this incredible Twitter account

I believe pain breeds wolves
and joys give rise to moons.

We grow forests in our bones
so our memories can’t find us.

I believe we hide and haunt ourselves.

I love that sweet smell of decay that surrounds me in forests and woods. A kind of mulchy, deep, rich rot that has no connotation of death or ending, but rather of life and age. A sense of perpetual destruction and rebirth.

Sarah Silverman is visited by Jesus Christ

This is one of the best responses to men against abortion ever

Okay, but this is also really truly one of the arguments used to discourage Orthodox Jewish boys from masturbating. They get told that if you look at semen in a microscope, you can see the individual faces of the “unborn babies”. This is why they’re not allowed to “spill semen in vain”. So this is not, actually, a parody. (In fact, for all I know, this is where Sarah Silverman drew her inspiration from…)

People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.

so in the past couple of days, a few of you have sent me messages expressing fear that you can be sued for posting screenshots of okc conversations without removing contact info. i just wanted to briefly go over why that’s not true.

since i sometimes like to tell people that i’m going to publish their messages (i like to think this will encourage them to think about their actions next time), i have had dozens of boys threaten to sue me. there are 2 main things that they generally seem to throw at me:

1. defamation of character
this breaks down into two branches: slander (spoken defamation) and libel (written defamation). since you’re publishing these messages to a blog, libel is what would be in question.
what’s important to keep in mind when someone accuses you of libel is that you have not committed a crime unless you have said something about the person that is untrue. in the case of publishing okcupid messages, you are literally posting a word-for-word transcript of something they said. you are posting true, accurate things that they said and your true, accurate responses to the things they said. you are not defaming their character, you are exposing it.

2. public disclosure of private facts
some slightly more law-savvy guys might try to tell you that posting their message chalks up to public disclosure of facts, which is when someone entrusts private information to you and you publish it. this claim sounds a little scarier but it, too, is a load of horse shit.
in order for this to apply, there has to be a certain expectation of privacy that exists between the people communicating. this is in effect to protect people who, say, sent a highly personal email to a very close friend. that person has a reasonable expectation that the friend will keep the information private. in the case of someone messaging you on okcupid, however, you are a complete STRANGER. they have no reasonable expectation that you will keep what they tell you private. and, considering that you’ve never met them before, what they told you can’t possibly be that private. 

tort law varies from state to state, and i definitely don’t have a degree in law, but this stuff is a no-brainer. as long as you tell the truth about what they said to you (which would be hard not to do if you’re posting a screenshot), these people have NO LEGAL RECOURSE. if you think they deserved to be exposed as abusive pieces of shit, then you are completely safe to do so. don’t let morons intimidate you with laws they made up to try to save themselves.

"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin

This man was a pure genius.

The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.
