“What’s with you Americans and calling everything gay?! GAY GAY GAY, every dumb thing is gay, everything you don’t like is gay. In Ghana, men walk down the street holding hands because they are friends. No one calls it gay.”—My freshman year college roommate who had just moved here from Africa (via fartwithheadphoneson)
“You can live with fear, I think. Maybe not forever, but for a long, long time. It’s offense maybe you can’t live with, because it opens up a crack inside your thinking. Go to your church and listen to your stories about Jesus walking on the water, but if I saw a guy doing that I’d scream and scream and scream. Because it wouldn’t look like a miracle to me. It would look like an offense.”—It by Stephen King (via rxbxccxv)
i just received an email that -for your reading and understanding pleasure- i’d like to translate into english.
"hi! i was kinda bored and surfing the net so i thought i’d say hi smile”
that is all. it seems like it’s coming from a decent email adresss so i’m wondering.. WHY would anyone send out an email like this? also, WHY would anyone think this is a good introduction/conversation starter? WHY would anyone believe this is all the information i need to become interested in them and eventually write back? and WHY use the term “surfing the net”? jeez. it’s sooo windows 95.
