What’s hilarious about a lot of anti-government white Americans is that they hate the American flag, but then fly a Confederate flag crying “HERITAGE, NOT HATE”. So, they are against the current statist, imperialist setup of American foreign policy… That’s good, but then they support a secessionist movement that wanted to create a separate state that wanted the “right” to own slaves and support racial segregation… Some white American anarchists are such fucking hypocrites.
Now everyone can turn into titan.

Sorry, did you say she wasn’t a role model?
marilyn is my biggest role model so don’t even go there
and let’s not forget this
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at the popular Mocambo, in Hollywood, because of her race. Marilyn, who loved her music and supported civil rights, called the owner of the Mocambo and told him that if he booked Ella immediately, she would take a front table every night. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. After that, Ella never had to play in a small jazz club again.
"She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it." - Ella Fitzgerald about Marilyn Monroe
OH SHIT YOU JUST GOT SERVED
I got goosebumps reading this. Amazing.
im pretty sure the person made the picture as a joke just to get a reaction and you guys really supplied them with one hell of one omg bless it
Apparently my residence hall is run by Tumblr.
[W]hile the drug war forces addicts and casual users to rely on unlabeled, black market (and possibly tampered-with) products for their fix, would drug users in a free market turn to such dangerous products? It’s unlikely. We do know that in the face of prohibition, many users turn to using alcohol and prescription drugs for off-label recreational uses that can cause harm that is similar or even worse than those caused by prohibited drugs.
There is simply no evidence that prohibition generates any socially desirable benefits, but there is ample evidence of its costs and destruction.
there’s a news headline generator that mixes words from real news headlines and they are fucking golden
these sound completely legit
WHY IS THE FUTURE
Experts told this artist her dream was impossible. It’s a good thing she didn’t listen.
Whoa dude this amazing
Elder Scrolls Online. Morrowind.
I’m gonna do this right now because my sem’s pretty much over and I’m just waiting for news of some trouble psychopath doing something stupid and stupid old people blaming video games for whatever aforementioned psychopath did without first analyzing what they went through that likely has little to do with video games.
Video games tell me stories in a way that I get to participate in the story’s progression. It doesn’t try to tell me that the things that happen in it should be justified in real life or that they’re as easy as they are in the game. Just to give you a few examples…
I played GTAIII, Vice City, and San Andreas for several weeks and I don’t find myself wanting to be involved in gangs or criminal activity.
I played Fallout 3 for several weeks and yet I don’t fantasize about shooting people’s heads and watching them explode in slow motion.
I’ve played Max Payne and its sequel but I never wanted to be a cop.
I’ve spent several fun hours playing Sleeping Dogs but it never made me think I was gonna be a martial artist any time soon.
I’ve played a few of the older Call of Duty and Medal of Honor titles (including the first Modern Warfare and MoH 2010) but I never thought that I knew what it’s like to be a soldier out in the field.
I spent the last few days playing Sid Meier’s Pirates! but I never thought to myself that piracy during the 1600s was a preferable life to working hard (it does make me want to save up for my own ship and just sail in the high seas because that’d be awesome).
I’ve played StarCraft, Red Alert 2, StarCraft 2, WarCraft 3, Rise of Nations, CNC Generals, Counter-Strike 1.6, Source, and Global Offensive, and a lot of other real-time-strategy and tactical FPS games but I never said that being a military general or a combat strategist would be easy.
I played Monopoly Tycoon but I never thought I’d be an effective capitalist.
I played School Tycoon several years ago but I never said I’d make a good principal.
I played Condemned: Criminal Origins a few times but it never made me want to be a serial killer killing serial killers the way they killed innocent people.
I played Manhunt for a short while but I never found myself strangling someone with a plastic bag or bludgeoning people with a crowbar to the back of the neck.
It’s the same as reading Harry Potter and watching the films and enjoying it but knowing that you couldn’t do magic spells to solve your problems. It’s like watching Rush Hour but knowing that the life of a cop isn’t as funny or as exciting as the movies make them out to be. It’s like listening to heavy metal music but not being a Satanist, or enjoying classical music even though you’re not some bourgeois with a ridiculous wig.
Before you blame video games for making your kids want to escape the real world, start thinking about why they feel that the real life you’ve all been designing for them in the course of your lives as adults with social and even political influence sucks so much that they’d rather pretend to be a Levantine in a white hood doing parkour in medieval Jerusalem.
If playing video games… no, if the concept of fun and play in an interactive media or in general is somehow still something evil for you at this day and age, then please, just
