there is a common poetry suggesting
that atoms and stardust are
born of the same expanding urge
and will one day contract
returning to the same center
where they began
(everything that rises must also fall;
for every action there is an equal
and opposite reaction;
the rules are explicit, even
just as all atoms have orbits
and all galaxies a nucleus
and all gravities a center
and all bodies a heart.
perhaps the air we breathe in the night
is the ash we held in our hands
and beyond the event horizon
of any black hole
from which no light ever escapes
is the same sequential solace as loss
(but it is not home
in the same sense as sand dunes
and sunsets are home. eventually,
the absence of matter
is what matters most,
the distance between planets, and
the places where those planets
have been. it slips through our fingers, so
we open our hands.)
"Come and Get Them"
Taken from Facebook- New York Second Amendment Supporters leave a Molon Labe banner for Governor Andrew Cuomo in Albany, on the eve of NY’s “Assault Weapon” registration deadline, as part of the NY SAFE Act, a widely unpopular bill among upstate New Yorkers
Only 3-5k of the 1,000,000+ gun owners in NY have complied with the registration requirements. “We will not comply” is the motto among many.
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT
So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

Starting today, your face, name, and personal information could appear in Google ads.
I love that when I unclicked the box, it said ‘Your friends will be less likely to benefit from your recommendations’ as if NOT having my browsing and searching history show up everywhere they look is a negative thing…
I guess my face and name will lend real credibility to the middle aged chronically depressed grossly unhealthy marginal poverty market.
HEY GUYS, SUPER IMPORTANT, GO AND OPT OUT ASAP.
Especially since it’s unlikely that any of us got told about this and it’s just a thing that’s happening without us knowing about it.
Oh for the love of God that makes me uncomfortable.
All too often, when a service though a large corporation such as Google is free, you are not the customer. You are the product.
