We must travel in the direction of our fear.– American poet John Berryman, born on this day in 1914 (via penamerican) I just came to the same conclusion. Thanks for the affirmation, Dr. Berryman, sir.
People who drink to get drunk.
magicsleepblanket: benecelante: Why do you live? People who drink in general.* I believe in drinking as a social lubricant. That being said, I just chugged a beer alone in my room. I think that if you drink “socially” as in just because everyone else is doing it, you’re a tool. I don’t think many people drink alcohol purely for the taste. Why do I live? Fuck if I...

jennittles: xalter—ego: lithefider: This prosthetic tentacle arm was created by Kaylene Kau. As a part of a student project, Kau was asked to “push the boundaries of current upper-limb prosthetic design.” Powered by a small motor and a set of cables, the tentacle shaped prosthetic arm curls its claw to grip objects. dude. dude.

To Answer Your Question: Round 2
Question: Why are you so fucking offensive? Today’s question brought to you by: Everyone I have ever met. “The only time that people think is when they are offended.” Now, this is an overstatement, but only slightly so. Human beings are lazy creatures. Whether this is the case because of our inherent nature or whether it has been bred into us by our most benevolent ruling class is a topic for...

Now to win over my Russian professor...
This will be more of a challenge since I haven’t attended more than thrice a week all semester and I am like three weeks behind in my workbook. Fuck that class. We don’t learn there. It just gives me horribly anxiety. And half the times I do attend he just goes on about how poetry is stupid. Why does that always come up. He doesn’t teach any poetry. Fucking frat douche...

TONI MORRISON: The Pain Of Being Black or (Stop...
Interviewer: In one of your books you described young black men who say, "We have found the whole business of being black and men at the same time too difficult." You said that they then turned their interest to flashy clothing and to being hip and abandoned the responsibility of trying to be black and male.
Toni Morrison: I said they took their testicles and put them on their chest. I don't know what their responsibility is anymore. They're not given the opportunity to choose what their responsibilities are. There's 60% unemployment for black teenagers in this city. What kind of choice is that?
Interviewer: This leads to the problem of the depressingly large number of single-parent households and the crisis in unwed teenage pregnancies. Do you see a way out of that set of worsening circumstances and statistics?
Toni Morrison: Well, neither of those things seems to me a debility. I don't think a female running a house is a problem, a broken family. It's perceived as one because of the notion that a head is a man. Two parents can't raise a child any more than one. You need a whole community -- everybody -- to raise a child. The notion that the head is the one who brings in the most money is a patriarchal notion, that a woman -- and I have raised two children, alone -- is somehow lesser than a male head. Or that I am incomplete without the male. This is not true. And the little nuclear family is a paradigm that just doesn't work. It doesn't work for white people or for black people. Why we are hanging onto it, I don't know. It isolates people into little units -- people need a larger unit.
Interviewer: And teenage pregnancies?
Toni Morrison: Everybody's grandmother was a teenager when they got pregnant. Whether they were 15 or 16, they ran a house, a farm, they went to work, they raised their children.
Interviewer: But everybody's grandmother didn't have the potential for living a different kind of life. These teenagers -- 16, 15 -- haven't had time to find out if they have special abilities, talents. They're babies having babies.
Toni Morrison: The child's not going to hurt them. Of course, it is absolutely time consuming. But who cares about the schedule? What is this business that you have to finish school at 18? They're not babies. We have decided that puberty extends to what -- 30? When do people stop being kids? The body is ready to have babies, that's why they are in a passion to do it. Nature wants it done then, when the body can handle it, not after 40, when the income can handle it.
