My house is so shitty. We could use more houseplants but we don’t have the room. And we could use the money to get someone to fix and clean the shower. Um, a cactus?

I was thinking cactus too.

People run from rain but
sit
in bathtubs full of

Wow bukowski so profound do you also bathe fully clothed you dickhead. “Oohh isn’t it funny that a person will eat when they’re hungry but will duck if you throw an apple at their face”

Based on my personality, what type of house plant do you recommend for me?

I just want someone who won’t get annoyed when I text them six times or in all caps. Someone I can go on long drives with and can sing along to the radio with. Someone I can eat pizza with at 2am and kiss at 6pm. Someone who chooses me everyday and never thinks twice about it.

That’d be cool.

Foliage as structure without color.

The game is serious about limiting the color usage, to the point that all the plants are made in white. What’s impressive about it is that it never once struck me as odd, until I saw these photos.

Thanks to arcturusdeluxe for submitting the shots. They write:

These white trees from Mirror’s Edge (2008) always intrigued me.  The city planners in that world must be pretty intense if they’re genetically modifying/painting the trees to match the decor.

Considering the army of unseen robots they must have scrubbing the city clean, I’m sure that kind of genetic manipulation is simple enough.

Mirror’s Edge (2008)

They have fat-free, sugar-free donuts.

They are GODS.

The show is a lot snappier than the books. In the text, it’s still funny but he explains what a tower house is.

Honestly, the South is JUST AS BAD as we’re taught in school. Studying the Civil War closer just reveals that the North sucked too. Prison camps and racist/clascist drafting practices are just the tip of the iceberg.

literally thats all anyone would need to tell me to get me to hate john green

"did you know in one of his books the two main characters make out in the anne frank house"

thats literally making out with someone at a holocaust memorial that’s awful what…

I actually think that it was really powerful imagery, because it emphasised the point Anne made in her diary, which is that she wanted to be remembered because she had lived. She didn’t want to be remembered as someone who had died. And I believe that she would have loved the idea of someone falling in love in her house.
Furthermore, the fact that Hazel and Augustus were white and Christian has literally nothing to do with the plotline.

YOU DO NOT MAKE OUT AT A HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU HOW IS THIS A DIFFICULT CONCEPT HOW FUCKING DISRESPECTFUL THAT IS TO TAKE A MEMORIAL LIKE THAT AND MAKE IT ABOUT YOUR “TRUE LOVE” OH MY GOD IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU AND THE FACT THEY WERE WHITE AND CHRISTIAN AND PRIVILEGED MAKING OUT IN A MEMORIAL FOR A JEWISH GIRL WHO DIED JUST BECAUSE SHE WAS JEWISH HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH EVERYTHING

Gotta wonder what his thoughts on Justin Bieber’s message in the guest book are.

"The Civil War wasn’t about slavery, it was about state’s rights."

Strictly true, but it was fought over the rights of those states opposed to federalism to base their economies on slavery. The Confederate army was composed mainly of lower class farmers who for the most part didn’t own slaves, or only a few at most. They would have been better able to compete with large plantation owners if slavery were abolished, and that economic reasoning is why West Virginia seceded from Virginia to fight for the North. 

A must read.

I saw so many of these over the past week, one had a collection of Bulgakov’s short stories I was sorely tempted to buy, but since it was in Russian it would’ve been the ultimate vanity book. Sadly, I didn’t get a picture of any of these little stalls overlooking the Seine.
