In general, I think we need to move away from the premise that being a good person is a fixed immutable characteristic and shift towards seeing being good as a practice. And it is a practice that we carry out by engaging with our imperfections. We need to shift towards thinking that being a good person is like being a clean person. Being a clean person is something you maintain and work on every day.We don’t assume ‘I am a clean person therefore I don’t need to brush my teeth.’ When someone suggests to us that we have something stuck in our teeth we don’t say to them ‘What do you mean I have something stuck in my teeth—but I’m a clean person?!’

Dude nailed it. We all need to work at being good. Even if we think we are.
This applies to so much
i had concerns about ssb4 3ds’s control scheme, but having tried the demo, i have to say, it’s really as close to perfect as you can get without an actual controller
in light of this, i am forced to conclude that the people complaining about it were shitbabies
Worldwide day of play is hilarious
I remember it was a good part of the day, then it was 6 hours, now its 3
I wait for the day they play shows and have something from worldwide day of play scrolling in the bottom like CNN
all i want to do is learn stuff and not have compulsory tests on it
i love learning new stuff
and reading new books
but when i stress myself out to the point where i’m crying because of exams
that kinda takes the fun out of it
do you feel me
this is such a sad thing and i feel it so bad.
MMA Fighter Who Brutally Beat His Ex: Men's Oppression Is 'Worse Than Slavery'
MMA fighter War Machine, originally known as Jon Koppenhaver, was arrested on Saturday for brutally assaulting porn actress Christy Mack, his ex-girlfriend, and reality TV personality Corey Thomas….
In case you thought it was impossible to hate War Machine more; he thinks the “oppression” alpha males suffer (in his own blog he cites how Americans can not even yell at or slap their wives) is worse than what the Jewish people suffered at the hands of the Nazi’s, and worse than black slavery.
Goodbye forever internet.
