I honestly believe that while I'd never worship an individual or forget they're still just a human being, Bernie Sanders represents the best of humanity's ideals and potential. I think there are great people who don't support him, but I think that if they really are great, then if you peeled away all of the traditions, customs, taboos, fear, social norms, peer pressures, etc that are layered on top of us from the day we're born, you'd find a person who largely agrees with Bernie Sanders on a great many things. I think it's cool to have a candidate who seems so much more intellectually honest and empathetic toward the problems of those he has little to nothing in common with, but just because humanity is starting to glow in one area doesn't mean it isn't still very, very dark in others. I'm optimistic that a politician like Bernie being so popular among young, idealistic people is a sign the world is headed in a better direction. I'm also realistic in knowing it's unlikely that America as a whole is ready for or even capable of peeling away those many layers just yet. We're getting there. Baby steps.

First guy starts the biggest, most amazing ship in the world. Uses all available materials and space to build it. Room for everyone, but a "no blacks allowed" policy keeps blacks from coming aboard. 

Blacks use the scraps to start a much smaller lifeboat to rescue minorities denied entry onto the main ship. It pales in comparison to the first ship, but it does its job - it keeps them afloat. 

A few of the people on the first ship say to their captain: "Hey, man. You've gotta start letting all colors on the ship. This isn't right." 

The captain replies, "Gee, that's funny. I don't see you complaining about that blacks-only life raft out there." The captain gets applause, and those questioning him are told to love the way the boat is run or get the hell off.

Fell and hit my head really hard earlier. I couldn't taste anything. Basic math was impossible, I couldn't hold a thought without getting a headache, and I realized the prequels are kind of underrated and that people who make fun of them are just big jerks.

Once there was a generation that could best be represented by the strong, hardy, belligerent, unrealistic, ignorant, mostly well-meaning machismo of John Wayne - always right even when it wasn't and always number 1 in their own minds even if they'd long forgotten what had once made them so. That generation had a kid, and that kid had full access to something called the internet and all its information - all its greatness and all its horrors. Millions of points of views. Their enemies, it turned out, weren't always enemies at all. The heroes weren't always behaving like heroes. There were faster ways to accomplish old tasks, and new tasks too complex to know just how to accomplish at all. There were more options if you wanted to do good, or if you wanted to misbehave. It was all laid out before you. Any point of view. Any belief. Any hobby or habit. The new generation was stronger in some ways and weaker in others, though the older generation would never admit the first part. The two worlds, variety and tradition, both with pros and cons and both thinking too highly of themselves and too little of the other, clashed like a motherfucker and the present day was born.

A lack of subtlety in most forms makes me really, really uncomfortable. You can be loud and over-the-top and still be being subtle, for the record. Ricky Gervais acts like a spazz on The Office but there's so much going on "between the lines". Not a fan of just noise or a lack of control. It's a character flaw of mine, maybe. Fast dancing makes me think people are acting like weirdos (I always imagine it with the music turned off). Throwing your arms up and yelling "Whoooooo!!!!!!!" at a sporting event makes me shudder on some tiny, tiny level. Slapstick comedy without perfect timing does the same. All that stuff. I like raw emotion and joy, don't get me wrong. I'm happy if people are having a good time. I'm not miserable around it. I just like actions with an edge or a smirk. I like passion a ton, but I like it with direction. I think maybe the mindless stuff seems slightly scary to me on some level, like it can so easily be pushed in any direction on a whim. 

Eh, my brain doesn't turn off. I get that. I've accepted it, and over the years I've stopped bitching about these things AND people have stopped giving me so much shit about being different. I used to think there was something wrong with me (when I didn't think there was something wrong with everyone else). I was probably right about both. I've grown to be cool with my tastes. Fuck it. Misfit for life.

Having street preachers scream at me that I'm going to hell through a loud speaker as I stroll by makes me think of how obnoxious we loudmouth skeptics may seem with our FB posts and questioning, but how it actually isn't even close to comparable.

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man, wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?
