Just take a deep breath.

19, cis male, pronouns: him/his/he. My name is Damon, I live in California. I cook a little, I draw a little, and I make a lot of stupid jokes. But the most important thing to remember about me is that I'm not like other girls.

I am so sick of seeing that scene on Fresh Prince where Will tells Uncle Phil about his dad with captions like “this was improvised!” And “Will Smith’s dad really left him!” Because he actually didn’t?? And was around his whole childhood and was super supportive of him??

YES. Even though his mom and dad had split up when he was a kid, Will Smith cites his own father as inspiration to become a dad himself.









That Mysterious “S” Thing We Used to Draw (by the1janitor)

We used to draw this as kids and it’s always confused me. It still really bothers me tbh.

This is really creepy tbh.

yeah we used to draw these! around 2002. at the time i was told it was like the slipknot logo but now i know it’s totally not. but we did used to get in trouble for drawing them.

we never got in trouble with them. I had them all over my school planner lol. 

(We did call them ‘super S’) 

There’s this awesome book I read called ‘The People in the Playground’ which concerns the observations of an anthropologist on children’s folklore: the stuff that kids independently teach one another in school yards and playgrounds that has no real connection to adult lore and media. This is a great example of it, as are hand clapping and jump rope verses.

If you can finish the lines “Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack all dressed in black black black…” or ‘Hinky Pinky Ponky, Daddy had a donkey…”or “Miss Suzy had a steamboat…” or “Engine Engine number nine…”

stop and think about where you learned them.

It probably wasn’t from an adult or out of a book or in any formal way. It was from another kid; someone a grade ahead of you or someone’s older sibling or something. Who learned it the same way.

This is CHILD lore. Sometimes a fad will come and go in a single age cohort, sometimes it’ll last for generations. It’s kind of awesome.

The idea of child lore and a distinct child culture is really interesting, especially when you consider that children have a few traditions that go back hundreds of years.

For example: did you ever play “Quaker’s meeting?” Quaker’s meeting has begun, no more laughter, no more fun…that dates back two centuries

And of course there’s “Ring around the rosie,” which goes all the way back to the time of the black plague.

Children pass these things down among themselves as part of a legacy they lack the context to fully understand; but you could say the same thing about most adult traditions. That unbroken chain of shared knowledge connects their play to the play of children from hundreds of years ago, without any adult input or encouragement.

That’s cool.

Im pretty sure I walk past a lot more cops than that

"The idea is that since the main goal of all private corporations is to make money, they’ll be much more willing than the government is to cut costs and eliminate waste. The result, conservatives and libertarians say, will be more efficient, responsible, and responsive services. That’s the theory, at least. In reality, privatization of public services has been a total disaster wherever it’s been tried. And, as a new report from the Center for Media and Democracy shows, it’s also created huge opportunities for fraud and corruption. The report, which was released today and is titled “Pay to Prey,” focuses on how Republican governors in states all across the country used the cover of privatization to enrich campaign donors and political cronies. The worst culprits include some the biggest names in Republican politics."

A Red State Privatization Horror Story (via azspot)

Privatization only lowers costs when profits are higher at lower costs (i.e. when raising costs will lower the rate of purchase enough that any benefits gained by having a higher price point are canceled out). Services that are necessary to live, literally or in terms of functioning in society, inherently have a captive consumer base. Anyone who can afford to pay for whatever it is must do so, and thus corporations only have to lower costs enough to get the highest number of people possible paying. And when they have a captive consumer base, they only have to provide the minimum amount and quality of service and maintenance.
