A wise person knows when and how to make the exception to every rule… A wise person knows how to improvise… Real-world problems are often ambiguous and ill-defined and the context is always changing. A wise person is like a jazz musician — using the notes on the page, but dancing around them, inventing combinations that are appropriate for the situation and the people at hand. A wise person knows how to use these moral skills in the service of the right aims. To serve other people, not to manipulate other people. And finally, perhaps most important, a wise person is made, not born. Wisdom depends on experience, and not just any experience. You need the time to get to know the people that you’re serving. You need permission to be allowed to improvise, try new things, occasionally to fail and to learn from your failures. And you need to be mentored by wise teachers.

"I think society’s emphasis on family forces us into relationships that are otherwise unhealthy. Sure, a long time ago, when people lived miles from civilization, family was all you had. There was a very practical purpose to sticking together. But now I have six million people in my backyard. Why should I be wasting time with someone I don’t like just because they have the same last name as me?"

UMMMMMM…. As someone who’s seen the Originals easily 200 times each, I’m suddenly super eager to rewatch everything in this order, holy hell.

While I’m here, can I claim that Episode I isn’t that bad, like you get Padme being essentially Elizabeth II (lots of responsibility at young age, hands-on participation in the war, etc), Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon broing it up and Darth Maul being a terrifying yet amusingly theatrical badass and I would watch the hell out of a TV show based solely on him going after the Jedi bros and Padme and everyone being really awesome. But then yeah you gotta deal with all the sadness for Shmi getting left behind (that has haunted me since I’m 10, I can’t be the only one) and Qui-Gon and the sheer body counts for pod racing etc etc and fucking midi-clorians (the first google result for it when i checked the spelling was “midiclorians stupid” bahaha) whether you love or hate the idea, personally I think it’s kind of like saying there’s people who have particles that can interact with strings/weak-interacting particles and how fucking awesome is that?!?!

The PERIOD PANTIES Kickstarter is now live! Support this bloody project!

Dudes!! I have two pairs of these (Cunt Dracula and Rainbo: First Blood) And not only are they lined with thick black fabric on the inside but they don’t bunch up so if pads are your thing it’ll stay in place! Also they’re super kickass and comfy; definitely support this one!
