Future, Life, and Love: LOOK AGAIN AT THAT DOT. THAT'S HERE. THAT'S HOME. THAT'S US. ON IT EVERYONE YOU LOVE, EVERYONE YOU KNOW, EVERYONE YOU EVER HEARD OF, EVERY HUMAN BEING WHO EVER WAS, LIVED OUT THEIR LIVES. THE AGGREGATE OF OUR JOY AND SUFFERING THOUSANDS OF CONFIDENT RELIGIONS, IDEOLOGIES, AND ECONOMIC DOCTRINES, EVERY HUNTER AND FORAGER, EVERY HERO AND COWARD, EVERY CREATOR AND DESTROYER OF CIVILIZATION, EVERY KING AND PEASANT, EVERY YOUNG COUPLE IN LOVE, EVERY MOTHER AND FATHER, HOPEFUL CHILD, INVENTOR AND EXPLORER, EVERY TEACHER OF MORALS EVERY CORRUPT POLITICIAN, EVERY "SUPERSTAR, EVERY "SUPREME LEADER, EVERY SAINT AND SINNER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR SPECIES LIVED THERE--ON A MOTE OF DUST SUSPENDED IN A SUNBEAM THE EARTH IS A VERY SMALL STAGE IN A VAST COSMIC ARENA. THINK OF THE RIVERS OF BLOOD SPILLED BY ALL THOSE GENERALS AND EMPERORS SO THAT, IN GLORY ε TRIUMPH THEY COULD BECOME THE MOMENTARY MASTERS OF A FRACTION OF A DOT. THINK OF THE ENDLESS CRUELTIES VISITED BY THE INHABITANTS OF ONE CORNER OF THIS PIXEL ON THE SCARCELY DISTINGUISHABLE INHABITANTS OF SOME OTHER CORNER, HOW FREQUENT THEIR MISUNDERSTANDINGS, HOW EAGER THEY ARE TO KILL ONE ANOTHER, HOW FERVENT THEIR HATREDS OUR POSTURINGS, OUR IMAGINED SELF-IMPORTANCE, THE DELUSION THAT WE HAVE SOME PRIVILEGED POSITION IN THE UNIVERSE, ARE CHALLENGED BY THIS POINT OF PALE LIGHT OUR PLANET IS A LONELY SPECK IN THE GREAT ENVELOPING COSMIC DARK. IN OUR OBSCURITY, IN ALL THIS VASTNESS, THERE IS NO HINT THAT HELP WILL COME FROM ELSEWHERE TO SAVE US FROM OURSELVES THE EARTH IS THE ONLY WORLD KNOWN SO FAR TO HARBOR LIFE. THERE IS NOWHERE ELSE, AT LEAST IN THE NEAR FUTURE, TO WHICH OUR SPECIES COULD MIGRATE. VISIT, YES SETTLE, NOT YET. LIKE IT OR NOT, FOR THE MOMENT THE EARTH IS WHERE WE MAKE OUR STAND IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT ASTRONOMY IS A HUMBLING AND CHARACTER-BUILDING EXPERIENCE. THERE IS PERHAPS NO BETTER DEMONSTRATION OF THE FOLLY OF HUMAN CONCEITS THAN THIS DISTANT IMAGE OF OUR TINY WORLD. TO ME, IT UNDERSCORES OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DEAL MORE KINDLY WITH ONE ANOTHER, AND TO PRESERVE AND CHERISH THE PALE BLUE DOT, THE ONLY HOME WE'VE EVER KNOWN -CARL SAGAN, PALE BLUE DOT, 1994 spacevisuals:Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan [1x1px]

Arguing, College, and Donald Trump: Joy Reid * @JoyAnnReid Now that l've read the entire transcript of @nytmike's Trump interview, a few observations: 1. Trump speaks a lot like a child does. Lots of focus on who likes him, who loves him who is his friend... his biographers all emphasize his deep desire to be loved & it comes through. 11:13 PM-28 Dec 17 9,632 Retweets 20.8K Likes Joy Reid Ф @JoyAnn Reid-11 h 2. Trump repeats whatever he is fixated on over and over again. I counted 15 "no collusion" repeats, sometimes two or three times in a single paragraph. And he keeps returning over and over again to the election and how he managed to win via the Electoral College. He's fixated. 162 Π1,477 6,139 Joy Reid Ф @JoyAnnReid-11 h 3. Trump things being president means he can do whatever he wants. He has an autocrat's impulse, and believes literally everyone in government, from the attorney general to every member of Congress, essentially works for him, owes him loyalty, and must "come to him for mercy. 147 t 1,737 6,341 Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid 11h He literally adopted a "Godfather" phraseology to all but say Democrats could have avoided blue state tax hikes via SALT if they had "come to him" to plead for his largesse. It's a combination of the impulses of 1. and 3. 42 п1310 5,103 Joy Reid * @JoyAnnReid 4. Trump thinks he is still the star of a TV show, and that the media has the power to decide who wins elections, based on ratings. Seriously: TRUMP: We're going to win another four years for a lot of reasons, most importantly because our country is starting to do well again and we're being respected again. But another reason that I'm going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of medit will tank if I'm not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes. Without me, The New York Times will indeed be not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times. So they basically have to let me win. And eventually, probably six months befor the election, they'll be loving me because they're saying, "Please, please don't lose Donald Trump." О.К. 11:20 PM 28 Dec 17 1,607 Retweets 5,528 Likes Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid 5. Trump invents his own reality, and then states that everybody else believes his version of reality too. And since he is so transparent, it's hard to argue that this is a strategy, rather than a form of self-delusion or just stubborn refusal to accept what is real. TRUMP: Yeah. Virtually every Democrat has said there is no collusion. There is no collusion. And even these committees that have been set up. If you look at what's going on - and in fact, what it's done is, it's really angered the base and made the base stronger. My base is stronger than it's ever been. Great congressmen, in particular, some of the congressmen have been unbelievable in pointing out what a witch hunt the whole thing is. So, I think it's been proven that there is no collusion. 11:23 PM-28 Dec 17 1,438 Retweets 5,252 Likes Joy Reid@JoyAnnReid.11h There are literally no Democrats who believe that. None. But he repeats that over and over in the interview. 0988 5,828 Joy Reid Ф @JoyAnnReid-11 h l've never observed anyone who is more precisely like his biographers have described him. And Trump's biographers have, to put it mildly, not been kind. He lives inside his own reality, where he is part beloved autocrat/dictator and part main character in a never-ending TV show. 112 п2,018 7,835 Joy Reid Ф @JoyAnnReid-11 h It is absolutely stunning that this person is president of the United States. bookahplease: passingafternoons: ICYMI: Trump’s latest uncensored, unsupervised interview with a NYTIMES reporter should be required reading for every American.

Being Alone, Bitch, and Life: geekandmisandry My boyfriend just woke up, mostly still asleep and told me "don't worry, it's getting better" in a heavy, American accent, which is unusual for an Australian man. "Why are you American?" l asked, to which Igot: "Sorry, it's getting better" in a stereotypical posh English accent. "Why are you English?" I asked, amused. "What is he normally?" He managed to ask. "He? You're not anyone else, you're you." "Ugh, me" was the last thing he said, in a right proper Aussie accent before he fell back into proper sleep. neverblogidly Bitch just thwarted a ghost possession by judging his accents AldenRants 26-50 @burnt_ramen_noodle asked me to RANT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO DELIBERATELY BURN THEIR MARSHMALLOWS ON SMORES! So, you guys mayyy have noticed I just recently did a rant about marshmallows and you mayyy ask yourselves "Why would Alden do two rants so closely related?" But I can assure you that this topic is an entirely different epidemic on its own. NEVER IN YOUR LIFE WILL YOU HEAR SOMEONE SAY "I like them better burnt teehee" WITHOUT THEM REFERRING TO MARSHMALLOWS. BECAUSE THANK THE LORD, WE'VE ALL AGREED AS A UNIFIED SPECIE TO FORBID BURNT FOODS AS CONSIDERABLY EDIBLE. EXCEPT THESE SPECIAL LITTLE ASHFLAKES WHO ARE UNDER THE DELUSION THAT TURNING THEIR FLUFFY SUGARY TREATS INTO HARDENED CLUMPS OF SATAN TOES IS EVEN ETHICAL LET ALONE FINE TO EAT!!! Why do you charcoal munchers do it? Are you just that impatient that you can't spend the extra 30 seconds of toasting your mallow to treat yourself to a warm, crispy, perfectly golden mallow; so you end up resorting to a deformed smoky lump of mallow that could be used to kill Goliath because you think, "I just don't deserve any better..."??? WELL GROW UP. LEARN TO BE PATIENT. AND BY GOLLY, LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF BECAUSE YOUR BURNT MARSHMALLOWS ArE hArShiNg mY MeLLow!!1!1!
