when they say simpons did it already
they’re not fucking kidding
Enter vociferous Hollywood movie star who rallies the masses, and goads Western governments to collect and send 100,000 mosquito nets to the afflicted region, at a cost of a million dollars. The nets arrive, the nets are distributed, and the ‘good deed’ is done.
With the market flooded with foreign nets, however, our mosquito net maker is promptly put out of business. His ten workers can no longer support their 150 dependents (who are now forced to depend on handouts), and one mustn’t forget that in a maximum of five years the majority of the imported nets will be torn, damaged and of no further use."
A reminder to take a long term view to problems. And always one that promotes development, not dependency.
can you imagine how amazing and mindblowing it would be to meet people who’ve lived for generations on a continent you didn’t know existed, full of food you’ve never tasted and weather you’ve never experienced, and who have languages and religions and cultures that aren’t in any way influenced by yours
that would be completely unbelievable and valuable beyond words
or, you know, you could kill them all and build colonies
I held my breath at the last one.
IT WAS COOL AND THEN IT GOT SCARY AS SHIT
This was crazy but .. we need tougher gun laws.
that last frame fucked me up
I’m all for women’s rights and stuff but like some people take it too far idk like obviously there are things that we need to work on as a society and there’s a whole lot wrong with societies views of women and the way we are expected to act but like a 12 year old girl was shot in the face for trying to go to school in Afghanistan?? idk in America we have it pretty good I guess I feel like a lot of the time ppl are just looking for something to complain about
I would like to show you how ass-ignorant you are right now.
Remember when a 7 year old girl IN AMERICA WAS LIT ON FIRE AND SHOT BY THE POLICE FOR EXISTING???
Remember when Joe Arpaio is too busy forcing women to give birth in CHAINS to even both to investigate OVER 400 RAPES in his jurisdiction?
Or when the Scott sisters received life sentences for stealing $11 as teens?
Or when Marissa Alexander was sentenced to 20 years for firing a warning shot from a gun she legally owned at her abuser who was threatening to kill her, 9 days after giving birth?
Or when CeCe McDonald was put into prison for DEFENDING HERSELF AGAINST A NEO-NAZI TRYING TO KILL HER?
BUT YEAH WOMEN IN AMERICA HAVE IT PRETTY GOOD, RIGHT?
SHUT UP WITH YOU WHITE SAVIOR BULLSHIT AND CLEAN UP YOUR OWN FUCKING HOUSE BEFORE YOU START FUCKING AROUND IN OTHER PEOPLE’S HOUSES.
Did any of you guys ever notice that in the Pledge of Allegiance, you all say, “One nation, under God”?
You might. I don’t. I’m quiet during that part.
Did you know that this was added to a godless pledge in the 1950s during the cold war? And that it’s clearly unconstitutional and that atheists and secular activists have been fighting it for years?
Did you ever stop to think that NOT EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD LIVES IN FUCKING AMERICA? And that there are ~gasp~ people who LIVE IN OTHER COUNTRIES and don’t say the fucking pledge of allegiance?
Did I just blow your mind, OP?
Not being American and having to watch the Americans vote for Romney is like the moment in horror movies when the audience is screaming at the character to not go down to the basement but they still do anyway and then they die a brutal, torturous death…
this is the fucking best descripition about the election omg
Homer votes for Mitt Romney and then is promptly sucked down a tube and outsourced to China in a brand new election-themed Simpsons short.
The Simpsons do better social commentary than half the shows out there, even after all this time.
This gif kind of symbolizes how he would run the country. He takes from the middle and adds to the top but when the top gets too heavy and there isn’t enough of the middle left to support the top, the entire thing collapses.
^ this fucking comment.
If you can look at this and say the media is not controlled by people who want to keep you docile and ignorant, I don’t know what else to tell you.
God’s big book of bad ideas.
Today a guy came in to my work with a parcel that had a street address and then just ‘MN’. I pointed at the blank bottom line that has “COUNTRY:” written on it, and asked “And what country is MN in?” even though I knew it must be America because of the guy’s accent. He looked at me blankly and then said “The United States of America, Miss. Don’t they teach you geography here?”
The moral of this story is: people outside of America don’t give a shit about American states 90% of the time, don’t be an arrogant ass when you go overseas.
Sometimes the America-centricness overwhelms me on tumblr (and the rest of the internet). And I keep getting pissed off when websites ask you for your address (when signing a petition, say) ask for your State (and of course NZ doesn’t have states) or postcode, but tells you that your postcode is invalid unless it’s a fucking US postcode. Like, I get it, the States are huge, but they’re not the centre of the world (well except on pretty much every goddamn map). Anyways, I know that feel, bro. That guy sounded like a class A douchebag.
