Holy shit that looks like Langston.
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.
But Confucius has answered them with the final whistle, it’s all over. Germany, having trounced England’s famous midfield trio of Bentham, Locke and Hobbes in the semi-final, have been beaten by the odd goal.
This is absolutely brilliant XD
It’s extra hilarious when you know Socrates’s reputation for staying up all night and drinking (yet never being drunk) with pretty young men, making them blush. So yeah. He “scores.” And Archimedes, of course, figures out how to actually kick the ball.
TIME’s new cover makes me so mad I could write essays about it, but instead I’m going to keep job hunting since in today’s world a university degree means nothing and therefore like much of my generation, I’m stuck choosing between minimum wage jobs and internships that I can’t afford to accept in an attempt to pay off my tens of thousands of dollars worth of student debt.
I’d be interested in reading this article to see exactly what makes us entitled and lazy. Are we lazy because more of us are completing high school and going to college than ever before? Are we entitled because our standard of living is declining? Do we live with our parents because we’re too slothful to leave or is because our education costs are getting steeper and steeper while we’re getting less and less aid?
Tell us, Time Magazine, about how we’re narcissistic little slugs when we’re faced with an economic crisis that resulted in a lowering of our standard of living, an increase in tuition costs and how when we get out of our very expensive schools, more and more of us are going to end up working minimum wage jobs.
Here’s some stuff to help you guys out, because this is some bullshit:
- A fantastic article in the Atlantic Online about how these sorts of articles are cyclical, suffer the same sorts of problems as most bullshit NY-media-originated trend pieces, and that some of Stein’s facts are incorrect.
- An interview with Stein at the AV Club when he was on tour for his book Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity that also happened in the immediate aftermath of his weird article claiming that adults should not be reading YA novels, in which he says, in part:
Yeah, I’m definitely arguing against a flexible definition of adulthood. Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with reading the occasional young-adult novel. I read King Dork for work, and I thought it was pretty awesome. I guess Catcher In The Rye would now be called young-adult writing, and I would obviously think an adult should read that. But no, it’s part of the same reason I wrote the book, because I think there’s something to be gained from being a man and being an adult, and that if we wallow in our childhoods for the rest of our lives, we’re missing a lot. I’ve actually tried to transition myself out of rock music, to start listening to classical music. I think by not becoming an adult, that’s a lazy way of not fully enjoying or experiencing life. Like I won’t go see The Avengers. I don’t feel like, as an adult, I should be responsible for knowing the difference between The Hulk’s relationship to Thor and Captain America. I don’t feel like I should be having that discussion at dinner parties.
Look, I’m an X’er, and I think this entire yadda yadda is pretty much crap, lacking in nuance, and I would like to apologize for this humorless, in-love-with-pointless-markers-of-adulthood dude. I’m perfectly happy to discuss The Avengers at dinner parties. Also that business about not listening to rock anymore is patently ridiculous. It’s so received, like being an adult means being someone you are not, instead of being exactly who you are and being okay with it.
