"It seems that when you have cancer you are a brave battler against the disease, but when you have Alzheimer’s you are an old fart. That’s how people see you. It makes you feel quite alone."
— Terry Pratchett (via anastiel)

"I think there is a real fear of being labeled anti-sex. The way pornographers and their allies have sold this is that you’re either pro-pornography or you’re anti-sex. Which of course is ludicrous because pornography is not the same as sex. Pornography is an industrial product. It commodifies human needs and sells it back to people, often in an unrecognizable form. It is not simply a reflection of reality. It is a specific representation of it and it is a specific way of representing sex.
Now to assume that if you are against pornography you’re against sex, is to assume that anyone who criticizes McDonald’s is anti-eating. People who criticize McDonald’s are against the destruction of the environment, against the assault on healthy foods, and against child obesity. They are against an industrial product. They are not against eating. So why can’t they see that it is the same thing when it comes to pornography and sex?"

i really don’t understand why it’s so hard for people to understand why capitalism is such a bad idea.  there is enough food, water, shelter for every single person on this planet and yet capitalism creates artificial shortages on all three, depriving millions from the necessities of life.  

Unemployment of people able/willing to work is also the most ridiculous thing because, just in my community alone, i can think of endless things that could be done to improve it: we need more teachers, our roads are in shambles, there are empty/dilapidated buildings that can be re-purposed; the resources to pay/provide for the currently unemployed people to do these things exists within my community too.

It’s irreconcilable with any standard of ethics (including Christian ethics, a set of morals our country claims to love so much) to continue to support an economic system that thinks enabling the mega rich to continue to increase their hyper-luxurious lifestyle at the expense of every one else is more important than bettering the lives of everyone in the community.


Adam is so deelpy flawed, and depressive, and melancholic. But Eve just loves it, loves his commitment to it. We were trying to make a film about acceptance. And true love is an acceptance of someone else for who they are.” — Tom Hiddleston

  1. The Doctor wrote LISTEN and forgot
  2. There was a kid under the blanket
  3. Orson Pink was going mad from isolation
  4. The Banging and screeching was causes by cooling pipes and air escaping from the broken air shield
  5. THERE WAS NEVER ANY CREATURE. IT WAS ALL IN THIER MINDS. The fear in this episode is the fear of not knowing, the fear of not seeing, and the fear of the belief that something is standing right behind you, right under the bed, even when there isn’t.
