As much as my job frustrates me sometimes, this is why I do it.
Nothing compares to the grandeur of seeing a movie on the silver screen!

what pit bulls did just to get to this poor kitty :/

God, I’m sick of hearing this story about “dangerous Pit Bulls” trying to get a “poor kitten”. Where was the dogs owner, the kittens owner? Obviously that damage didn’t happen in just minutes, this had to be going on for a while and no one noticed. Why did the dog go after the kitten? Did the dog actually want to harm the kitten, meaning did anyone see it chase it there or was it trying to help a stuck kitten, or try to play with it? A “Pit bull” pilled its passed out owner out of the way of a train, getting itself hit and needing a leg removed, they will do dramatic things to save something. But what reason would it chase a cat and then rip up a car? I don’t mean because of it’s breed (because any breed will chase a cat, and many breeds have stronger jaws then a Pit), I mean because of it’s lack of training. My “Pit bull” gets his face chewed on every day by my cat and is just fine by it. People need to educate themselves a little more before sinking into the medias bullcrap.  They never cover the dog involved (the so called “Pit Bull”) but just demonize it, and act like normal dog behavior is some sort of out of this world, dark magic, voodoo stuff because a so called “Pit Bull” did it. How I see it, if the dog didn’t rip up the car that cat would have been stuck and would have died because no one would know it was there. In fact the dog saved it more then anything, if it meant to or not. 

Exactly.This story, like many others, is being reported so goddamned irresponsibly by the media."WATCH OUT PITBULLS WILL EAT YOUR CAR AND CATS! HIDE YO’ KIDS HIDE YO’ CATS!"Simplistic, idiotic, and so harmful.As the above poster said, how do we know they weren’t just trying to save the cat? As both a pitbull owner and a cat owner, I know that our pitty is very protective of our cats. How do we know that wasn’t the case here? That’s where the media fails us: why would you uphold journalistic integrity and investigate a story when you can just parrot the idiocy the original reporter’s ignorance?Sensationalistic “reporting” like this perpetuates breed discrimination and ignorance about pitbulls, and should be fought with facts and reason.

I bet the world would be a better place if everyone had an afro

they’re like built in pillows

no one is angry after a good power nap


Truly one of the wisest things ever said. I’m gonna go take a power nap now and wish I had a sweet pillow ‘fro. Or a comfy pillow.

The General Manager is definitely the most powerful, and (as an obvious micromanager) the ringleader of heinous intent.
Mr. Mew is his most vicious enforcer, thief of flash drives, shredder of toiletries. He revels in depriving the innocent of sleep. Truly a beast of chaos who cares not for the meaning of right or wrong.
Professor Freeze is a molester, and quite possibly definitely out-creeps the slapable Creepazoid.

Your life is not an episode of Skins. Things will never look quite as good as they do in a faded, sun-drenched Polaroid; your days are not an editorial from Lula. Your life is not a Sofia Coppola movie, or a Chuck Palahniuk novel, or a Charles Bukowski poem. Grace Coddington isn’t your creative director. Bon Iver and Joy Division don’t play softly in the background at appropriate moments. Your hysterical teenage diary isn’t a work of art. Your room probably isn’t Selby material. Your life isn’t a Tumblr screencap. Every word that comes out of your mouth will not be beautiful and poignant, infinitely quotable. Your pain will not be pretty. Crying till you vomit is always shit. You cannot romanticize hurt. Or sadness. Or loneliness. You will have homework, and hangovers and bad hair days. The train being late won’t lead to any fateful encounters, it will make you late. Sometimes your work will suck. Sometimes you will suck. Far too often, everything will suck - and not in a Wes Anderson kind of way. And there is no divine consolation - only the knowledge that we will hopefully experience the full spectrum - and that sometimes, just sometimes, life will feel like a Coppola film.

The truth may be puzzling.
It may take some work to grapple with.
It may be counterintuitive.
It may contradict deeply held prejudices.
It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true.
But our preferences do not determine what’s true.
We have a method, and that method helps us to reach not absolute truth, only asymptotic approaches to the truth — never there, just closer and closer, always finding vast new oceans of undiscovered possibilities.

THANK YOU!

But seriously, someone had to say it. Too many damned people throughout history have missed that minor point (haha, oh how punny.)
