I don’t want to go to India. As long as I know what I’m possibly missing by not going, it’s okay.

If someone told me that they never wanted to visit Yellowstone National Park, I would certainly tell them that they’d be missing out on something unique but as long as they understood I’d have to let it go.

We can’t have every good experience out there and we must miss out on some things. That’s life.

Ugh, for real. I am incapable of stopping, literally.

Almost two years ago, I said I might stop posting about American politics because I wasn’t in America anymore.

And then my blog became, like, twice as political lol.

Never say you’re going to stop the political posts

Because you know you won’t.

Once into politics, always into politics.

EPA Faces Criticism for Decadent, Energy Wasting Earth Day Tour

stuff-that-irks-me:

The Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility took a swipe at the EPA for sending bureaucrat Gina McCarthy on an greenhouse gas generating five city tour for Earth Day.
Administrator McCarthy will undertake a greenhouse gas laden week-long tour that will “far exceed” any benefit from her climate change proselytizing.
“Frenetically jetting around the country appears to undercut [the] EPA’s message to ordinary Americans that they should conserve, consume less and reduce transportation pollution,” PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch said in a statement.
McCarthy will be participating in “various events to…focus on responsible steps to cut carbon pollution to slow the effects of climate change” in New York, Boston, Cleveland, Atlanta and Memphis.
Some activities on the tour were called into question.
Ruch noted that some events on McCarthy’s itinerary have questionable ties to promoting climate action, such as joining Energy Secretary Moniz to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Tuesday’s Red Sox vs. Yankees baseball game at Boston’s Fenway Park.

Hipsters

freemarketsfreepeople:

The whole idea of hipsterdom is completely ridiculous. They pride themselves in how uniquely they can dress and look, but how special is that? If you want to be unique, learn a skill. Improve yourself. Become smarter. Be a good person. Help strangers. Anything else. But there’s no value to dressing outlandishly. Literally anybody can wear tattered clothes from Urban Outfitters. Anybody can shave half their hair and tie the other half around their head and into a knot like some kind of boy scout exercise. It doesn’t make you edgy or unique. It just shows that’s the only way you can distinguish yourself from every other pretentious douchebag in the world.
Furthermore, I can’t even fathom the irony in dressing exactly like every other hipster in order to showcase your individuality. Sure, you might do a different stupid thing with your hair and clothes, but you’re essentially doing the exact same thing every other one of them is.
For the love of God, if you want to be original or special, do something more substantive than dressing like a 2 year old looking for attention—because that’s exactly what you are.

Look up the Urban Dictionary definition of hipster. You will cry.
