I’m still mad at myself for clicking that link last night
I HATE screamers. WORST. INTERNET. INVENTION. OF. ALL.
Someone emailed me one in 2003 that stopped my heart and I thought I was gonna die. For YEARS I refused to click on anything anyone sent me ambiguously…
Me: WTF is this link??
Friend: just click it, it’s funny
Me: NO! you tell me what it is and if it scares me I swear to God I’ll kill you!
But last night I was fairly warned… I honestly expected some sort of gross picture or video since they used the words “can’t unsee” but Nooooooo it was a horrifying Korean cartoon that takes control of the browser and makes scary noises…
Resulting in me locking myself in our room and not finishing the next level of Lego Harry Potter.
When you post/reblog pithy little graphics or other things that bemoan others not using English words or grammar correctly, it makes me lose a lot more respect for you than anyone else. It makes me want to unfollow you.
On the best days, that kind of language policing and…
Yeah… Sorry but, no fucking way.
I don’t run around shaming non-English speakers online, but when some bitch I went to school with (i.e. same education as me) who is now a 2nd grade teacher (entrusted to teach others English) wrote on a Facebook album of her classroom, “these are my new BOOKSHELFS"
That makes me fucking angry. And If somehow i’m an imperialistic douchebag then fucking fine…
“It’s criminal that so little is asked of people who are getting so much. I don’t mind paying more. I really don’t mind paying more taxes. I’d rather pay for taxes than cut ‘Reading is Fundamental’ or Head Start or some of these programs that are really helping kids. This is the greatest country in the world; is it really that much worse if you pay 6% more in taxes? Give me a break. Look at what you get for it: you get to be American.”—
