Wild gay meat
shitmystudentswrite: You can avoid trichinosis by not eating pork and wild gay meat. *Ahem*
i recently finished Murakami’s After Dark it was a short, but compelling novella, full of his characteristic strangeness/perceptiveness i wish there had been more compelling bits, and i also wish that the tone didn’t feel so homogenous sometimes- it was like eating a plate of dumplings, over too quickly but nonetheless very good at one particular taste so anyway I noticed that he...
13.7: Forced Moves Define Our Freedom →
“A few weeks ago we discussed the anxiety that science now teaches us that (in James Atlas’s words) the “choices we make in day-to-day life are prompted by impulses lodged deep within the nervous system” and that, therefore, in some sense, we are not really the authors of our own actions, responses, choices.

Would Paul Have Made a Good Evangelical? →
(^By Jove, that is a gigantic forehead.) I feel like evangelicals especially love to use Paul when they quote the Bible.

I have even less reason to like him now. Also, seriously? A prosperity gospel preacher whose last name...

Legend of Korra speculation (based on last...
Now that Tarrlok has emerged as a full-blown antagonist, I suspect that he is actually Amon pulling some political strings (sort of a Palpatine thing). He hints to a mysterious past, reacts violently to Korra accusing him of “being just like Amon,” and in confronting Korra, triggers her visions/memories of Aang, which also happened when she confronted Amon. Aaa I just want to know...
