My gender ? ??? Sexuality? ?? I don’t want to have either of those things. i want my identity to be as non-coporeal as possible. Untouchable. Just like MC hammer.
petitions for asexuals to be allowed to say “i totally aced that” whenever they misread a potentially sexualised situation
and then to just majestically sweep out of the room in a billowing cloud of purple smoke but that is optional
Okay, one last thing and I promise I’ll shut up about Tolkien for a while. (That does not extend to posting Zep videos or Venture Bros. clips. You’ve been warned.)
If you’re a fantasy reader (I have no idea what you’re going to get out of this if you’re not, so feel free to stop reading now and…
Diogenes was the shit. He was easily one of the best philosophers ever. He made himself the least wealthy person, hence living in a “Barrel”. He also, upon seeing a child drinking from a river with his hands, smashed his only wooden bowl claiming to be “Bested by a child”. He did public stunts to make a point towards customs and norms including eating in the marketplace in Athens which was generally not acceptable. When Plato described humans as “Featherless Bipeds” he plucked a chicken and brought it to him, saying “here’s your man”. Plato changed that description to “Featherless bipeds with arms”.
And here’s where it gets real.
Diogenes the Cynic became well known all over. In fact, Alexander the great, the one man who could have anyone killed just because, went out of his way to find him. Upon meeting Diogenes, whom was laying on the ground, he said something to the extent of “Ah, the great Diogenes! Is there anything that I, Alexander the Great, can do you?”. Diogenes’ response was a crude “Yes, Get out of my sunlight.”
But, however, Alexander came back another time, to find Diogenes sifting through a pile of bones. Alex inquired “Diogenes, what are you doing sifting through that pile of bones?” Diogenes the Cynic responded “I’m trying to distinguish between the bones of your father, and that of a slave. I cannot tell the difference.” An insult that any man would want the other beheaded for indeed. But no, not Alexander.
Alexander went on to later say that if he were not Alexander the Great, he would wish to be Diogenes.
Dude’s a motherfuckingbadass.
My new fav person. Ever.
(alright last one C: )
Hey Mr. Jack,
I have a friend, he is pretend.
I hear your voice on the wind.
Don’t change your name, keep it the same,
Is it enough to have some love?
At this point it’s just a race to see if I can graduate college before homestuck ends.
When the earth was still flat, and clouds made of fire,
check your diction, search your memory.
They say it fits if you let it.
I didn’t know what a brute I was.
alright, let’s talk vampires.
As I was goin’ over the Cork and Kerry mountains,
i want some red roses, for a blue lady,
this ain’t your grandfather’s marijuana, this stuff will kill you,
hey, you surround me like a blanket in my bed,
two trailer park girls go round the outside.
