People sharing memes, sharing memes, sharing memes. It irks the fuck out of me sometimes.
I despise the whole “me too” thing.
What Oscar Wilde said is even more true in our time than in his own when he wrote: “Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”
Does anyone besides Donald Trump actually use Twitter?
Okay, obviously I’m using it now, but let me explain it…
It makes for a really cool and easily update-able side bar for this web site. I love making memes. I thought about creating a gallery for them, but meh…
Too much work.
Then it just occurred to me to just have a Twitter account, like I used to, and I can just dump all the memes there and use their embed thingie as a side bar deal. It works really well, and it’s simple as hell to keep updated.
So if people follow it, or not, I really don’t care. My girlfriend, Ginamarie, follows it, and that’s pretty much it. She never logs into Twitter. She basically logged in so she could follow what I was doing there and hasn’t logged back into it since.
We live in an extraordinary time in human history.
There’s a war going on, and you probably never even realized it was happening.
The war is taking place on an intangible battlefield called your mind. The stakes are what you’ll accept as true and what you’ll believe is false. Your main weapon in this fight is research and your main source of protection is knowledge. Believe it, or not, your beliefs are a valuable commodity in this world, and there are people willing to fight and die a real death to make sure your beliefs line up a certain way.
Me? I just want you to believe whatever it is you came to believe on your own, without someone encouraging you to believe something one way or the other. I just want your beliefs and ideas to be truly yours, not someone else’s.
