A billionaire, a white American, and a black single mother are sitting at a table with a dozen cookies. The billionaire takes 11 of them, turns to the white American and says, "That lazy welfare queen is trying to take your cookie."
Last month, in a desperate bid for money and attention, we launched a holiday marketing campaign called “Cards Against Humanity’s 12 Days of Holiday Bullshit.” The gist was: you give us $12, we send you 12 mystery gifts over 12 days. HolidayBullshit.com is a way for…
I am going to start out this review by saying that The Movement is not a comic I buy when it comes out or that I otherwise financially support. And that fact is in no way an indication of my feelings about the series (or maybe it is, just not in the way…
imagine a pacific rim video game with really great character customisation and you start in jaeger training or something and instead of romance options there’s drift compatibility and the person you get as a partner depends on which dialogue choices you pick throughout all of your training and instead of classes there’s different types of jaeger and THEN YOU GO KICK SOME KAIJU ASS
But how does it even play? That is all just menu/fluff what is the actual mechanics/idea?
It was pretty gross listening to how dismissive you were of the last of us, but you enjoy absolute shit like the WWF. Have you considered you might have bad taste?
I don’t know, considering that most people who are into stealth gameplay seem to spend most of their time apologizing for its specific quriks when describing it to normal people, I’d say that they’re sort of the same thing.
Stealth gameplay is the professional wrestling of video games.
At least I think the story and technical aspects of The Last of Us are sound. What’s your excuse? I mean, other than the part where you’re total bullshit, of course.
When you’re homeless and you’re spending your days in the local park, sleeping off the previous night’s alcoholic binge, or just trying to get some rest, inevitably someone from a local social service organization will come by and attempt to interest you in its services. The truth is, these centers really only track or monitor the homeless; they offer few services designed to change a person’s life. This is especially true if you are living outdoors, eating what you can and when you can, putting all of your energy into survival, and trying to maintain at least some degree of good hygiene.
Believe me, personal hygiene—which so many people take for granted—is not a simple thing for a homeless person. Finding a place to shave, take a shower, or just brush your teeth can take up much of your day. The social service organizations inevitably emphasize personal hygiene, but their facilities are always filthy and overcrowded. It can take hours to get cleaned up. Often, I simply choose to go without, or I do a birdbath sort of cleanup in a public washroom. Even this is difficult; people tend to frown on seeing a homeless person try to wash up in the sink.
Everyone frowns at the sight of a homeless person. And it’s this that really gets to you—the awareness that you are being judged immediately, without consideration for contributing circumstances, by everyone you pass, everyone who sees you in the crosswalks, everyone who pretends not to see you. Even when they turn away, in avoidance or disgust, they are judging you—for your clothes, your lack of hygiene, or the bag of supplies and clothing you carry with you. Very few affordable public storage spaces exist. It becomes easier to simply carry the things you need. Yet this bag, these bags instantly identify you as a homeless person. And it’s always the same look, the one that you know holds the same thought: “There goes another one of those homeless people. Something should be done about them.”
Hey, you linked some articles from the DISGUSTING website returnofkings today on twitter. When people click on the links you provide, it they move up the Google search ratings meaning more people will find them and perhaps be influenced negatively by them. You can prevent this when linking by using a service such as donotlink(.)com. This will allow people to reach the page without Google and other search engines recognizing the hits, meaning fewer people will be exposed to this appalling shit
I legit appreciate this, I didn’t know about donotlink, and it definitely sounds like a great resource.
FWIW, I always relink gross and offensive shit like that with some degree of trepidation. I’m often of the mind that there’s no value in providing any more eyes for content like that, but I’m also a person who finds a deal of personal comfort in being able to say “Guys, have you seen this shit. Someone else look at this terrible thing with me so that we can confirm that there’s a reason we spend the time and energy we do trying to affect change.” (Which I guess is just careful way of saying that I like sharing shit like that so that I can feel better about myself.)
In any case, thanks for telling me about DoNotLink. I’ll use it in these situations from now on.
