Totally On Purpose

“In the nineteenth century, roughly speaking, all respectible people seemed to suppose that nobody could be tempted to murder or theft or adultery, if he were really respectible. They thought these tempations only came to a curious remote tribe of monsters, called the Criminal Class. From this arose the whole horrible humbug that is called Criminology. Quacks like Lombroso seemed to suppose that no man had ever wanted to push another man’s face in, unless his own facial angle was of so many degrees…”

-“Euthanasia and Murder” by GK Chesterton, published in the American Review http://www.unz.org/Pub/AmericanRev-1937feb-00487

I simply cannot handle this man’s sass. It gives me too much joy.

Loki is not in Avengers 2!

shimmeringwater:

How is this even possible?

because even Loki wouldn’t support the next big villain coming their way. Plus he got what he wanted, why rock the boat now? They’ll refer to it later maybe, in the comics at least but the Avengers have their hands plenty full in Avenger II

Also go see Guardians of the Galaxy cuz that’s basically the prequel to the Avengers II

“I am in love with you, babe. But if you try that again I will eat chili dogs with extra onions, jalapenos, sauerkraut, and Dijon mustard to give me laser breathe before I let you kiss me.”

“Finally, Stephen Hawking’s headlined observation about death, that an after-life “is a fairy-story for people afraid of the dark” is both sad and misinformed. Openness to the theoretical possibility of there being 11 dimensions and fundamental particles “as yet undiscovered” shows an intellectual humility strangely at odds with writing off the possibility of other dimensions of existence.”
I’d stake my Life that Stephen Hawking is wrong about Heaven; Hawking says some admirable things, but the idea that I believe in life after death because I’m afraid of the dark is insulting.” by Michael Wenham 

I’ve been getting a lot of student papers arguing for euthanasia at the college tutoring center where I work. Perfect way to make a bad week worse. 
Brace yourselves. A lot of anti-euthanasia quotes are coming from my queue. Probably a lot more Chesterton too becuz his stuffed english sassiness is inordinately comforting.
