My English professor is either bad at communicating or is fucking crazy. I had his class last week and he said our assignment was a nature walk and that we should skim over like 2 readings before we do it. Upon looking at the assignment, this is the reading:
After you finish Gail and Snell Putney’s “The Invisible Strait Jacket” and
Robert Anton Wilson’s “Toward a General Theory of B.S.,” which should have you pondering the ways your culture has shaped you, I’d like you to read Sven Birkerts’ “American Nostalgias” and the excerpts from Richard Louv’s Last Child in the Woods and listen to John Gorka’s “Houses in the Fields.”
Then he explains the report, but continues with:
But before you begin your report, read Jose Argüelles’ brief remarks
on the “image-fix,” Aldous Huxley’s speculations about nature in Brave New World, Thomas Berry’s “The Meadow Across the Creek,” and Chellis Glendinning’s “Technology, Trauma, and the Wild.” Then listen to Little Big Town’s “Boondocks.”
How am I possibly expected to do all of that in a week and take an hour long walk through nature in the middle of bum fuck nowhere.
I guess Tumblr has a gif button that creates a gif with no warning…?
I wish people would stop saying “I support communism, but it only works on paper and can’t be implemented in real life”.
1.) You are trying to sound like a fucking philosopher with your awesome insight but instead you sound like an ignorant asshat that wants attention.
2.) Noticing one of the tenants of communism is systematic equality, you can basically make the same argument “I believe in equality, but it only works on paper and can’t be implemented in real life” which makes you the biggest asshole in the world.
3.) If you agree with something, it means you recognize it as correct, but then you make a statement you blatantly disagree with truth. What the actual fuck?
one time i was walking across the courtyard and some kids were clustered around where the seagulls always are and then this kid fuckin GRABBED ONE OUT OF THE AIR and i was literally so fucking amazed but all his friends were like “tyrone put that shit down” and “again tyrone?? really??” which is even better because it means he was a habitual seagull catcher

Just told some kids who identify as conservative about how I fundamentally believe terrorism to be necessary and justified and how I am a radical leftist. Thank you college.
"But if you move to communism, doesn’t that mean we abolish the State?"
Me: “Yeah, duh”
"Name one state that successfully became communist!"
Me: “That’s a trick question. Nation-states legitimize the government.”
"Well, wouldn’t that mean we abolish religion?"
Me: “So? jfc”
