    took a bong rip of salvia and activated my past life memories of being the chimpanzee from Bedtime for Bonzo. Does not mauling Ronald Reagan when I had the chance make me a liberal?

    in a post carceral state we must not focus on the sins of the past but the possibilities of the future. rip harder next time so you can astral project harder and finally fucking kill him

    Ronald Reagan Torn Up By A Chimpanzee On Tape

    EXTRAPLANAR DIRECT ACTION

    As for the scientist’s regression into an apelike being, the late Dr. Craig Enright, who started me on K while taking a trip with me here by the isolation tank, suddenly “became” a chimp, jumping up and down and hollering for twenty-five minutes. Watching him, I was frightened. I asked him later, “Where the hell were you?” He said, “I became a prehominid, and I was in a tree. A leopard was trying to get me. So I was trying to scare him away.” I said, “If you do that again, I’ll kick you in the ass.”

    John Lilly, 1983

    “I will love and care for myself as much as I love and care for my Bird. I will love and care for my Bird as much as I love and care for Others I will love and care for Others as much as I love and care for Myself…” And so on… 

     If you don’t have a bird, you can always replace it with any critter you cherish, be they wild or a companion, or even supplement the idea of Cody. I feel if we get these social elements in balance, we will be in a better place collectively. 

    Not saying it’s easy, I know it’s hard to resist laying down the S A S S, but it’s something we can continually strive for. NAMASEED

    girl in language class: so why are you taking Italian? :)

    me thinking about my plan to go back in time and raw Leonardo Da Vinci so hard he can’t walk for three days: I love the food

    theroomyouneverenter

    to clear things up because some of you clearly cannot fucking read: i am a homosexual man who is willing to go back in time and put my entire penis inside of historical figure Leonardo Da Vinci’s rectum in an act of anal sex and then go on to live a lavish and intellectually stimulating lifestyle as his beloved top. i don’t know what a video game is and i don’t care.

    love the implication that a man who would bend iron horseshoes for shits and giggles at parties would need a top

    The most underrated love story of all times

    ok but like… this is one of my favourite scenes?? Because until this scene you’ve only vaguely heard about this ‘Spanish princess’ and she’s essentially a plot device and then she appears on screen for like 1 minute and she’s a real person with feelings and wants and an unexpected backstory that you get from the context of this one scene. And then presumably her parents give up on their marriage plans and she goes on to marry the man she loves (right then and there maybe?? idk there’s an entire wedding sitting there that no one’s using).

    And all the female characters from this batshit crazy movie are like this. Even the Evil Stepmother™️ gets a few lines about her own childhood.

    Anyway I love this movie. It’s so cheesy and tropey but also Leonardo Da Vinci swears at the Prince, and Cinderella cuts a bitch, and Anjelica Houston’s eyebrows carry entire scenes.

    ^^This.

    How you know this was written by a woman. 

    also like. Look at that: she leaves handsome prince to be with her short, older, balding love.

    Fuck yeah, girl, you love who you love.

    Happy pride month to gay men who don’t fit the idealised “skinny white boy” image! To black, brown, Latino, and Asian gay men who are constantly assumed to be straight just because of your ethnicity. To gay Sikh and Muslim men who receive far to little recognition. To fat gay men who have to deal with fatphobia and body shaming in a community that is supposed to be safe and welcoming. You are all valid and important members of the gay community, and the lgbt community as a whole 🌈

    Blogging this tweet because this explains SO MUCH about the mindset of pretty much all the folks I’ve known who’re against single-payer, it’s not even funny…

    This….

    This never occurred to me. Not once. That Americans are against Health Care because they think it actually costs tens of thousands of dollars for a broken arm, hundreds of thousands for a complicated birth, millions for cancer treatment.

    Because they’ve never known anything different. The idea that a broken arm is only a couple hundred bucks; a complicated birth a couple thousand; cancer treatment only tens of thousands; all easily covered by existing tax structures.

    This explains a lot. And it’s a good example of what I was talking about in my post on scarcity being used to prop up ableism – always question the idea that a resource is genuinely scarce.  Even if it seems obvious that it is, quite often that’s the result of careful manipulation and misconceptions that you’re not even aware of.  

    And never think you’re too smart to be fooled by that kind of thing, it doesn’t work like that.  Similarly, don’t think people who are fooled by something are stupid.  Nobody can have all the information about everything, and nobody has the time and energy to investigate and put together conscious conclusions about every piece of information they’re given.  It doesn’t take being stupid, or even just gullible, to believe something like this.

    I currently live in a country without free medical care and still, it’s enormously cheap compared to the USA. An American expat wrote a piece for our English language paper about how she paid more for parking at the hospital than giving birth to her baby that’s pretty interesting:

    https://grapevine.is/mag/articles/2016/01/06/healthcare-in-iceland-vs-the-us-weve-got-it-so-good/

    Yesterday I had to go to the hospital cause I injured my eye, I’m frankly dreading what the bill is going to be, but what made me balk was being told in the pharmacy that my insurance was denied for the antibiotic eye drops and it’d be over $100 out of pocket. So I didn’t get my eyedrops.

    I’ve had these same drops before living in the UK. They cost me seven GBP.

    It’s the exact same drug, same steroid, same strain of antibiotic. But somehow the US gets away with charging $100 for a generic non brand version of a drug which is easy to create and widely used. It’s downright robbery, but also a form of eugenics through poverty and class warfare. You keep the poor poor by making sure basic necessities remain unattainable and then you make it seem like the norm so no one fights it.

    The rest of the world is not like this.

    Eat the rich. Resist.

    I went to a talk at a conference a bit ago. And the guy was talking about pricing medical devices. And one of the ways of figuring it out was their worth to a person.

    So the worth of a hearing aid is not manufacturing costs+a reasonable profit, the worth of a hearing aid is<> being able to hear.

    And the same principle applies to everything else too, from prostheses to cancer treatments.

    It wasn’t the only consideration, things like reimbursement (like from insurance, medicare, etc), and market size were included too, but it was an important initial consideration.

    (I have heard that high costs in the US subsidize the costly development of new drugs and it would not be possible if the costs of drugs, medical treatments, etc. were regulated in the US like they are other places but. Hmmmmmm)

    Rebloggin because, that’s cartoonishly evil, but telling.

    Because, thinking about it, they are right when they tell us that financially “successful” businesspeople do often think differently from the rest of us. They are wrong in thinking this is a good thing.

    Because, when you devote so much of your life to min-maxing in a field; nay a system; that de-centralizes things such as human life, you start to treat people as just another commodity.

    And, honestly, if there’s one thing a lot of people need to learn from Discworld, it’s that a grand majority of evil can be traced back to treating people like things…
