that I chased a boy
who ripped me to shreds
says a lot more
than it did about him.
Excuse me. Did you know humans can’t fly on our own? We also can’t navigate the oceans with instinct, or walk 80km a day based on the path our ancestors took. We can’t breathe underwater. Hey, speaking of digestive systems (here’s a handy fucking tip - how you digest food doesn’t make you superior) - did you know that all carnivorous animals digest flesh better than us? In fact most omnivorous animals do. So I guess that makes us inferior to like at least 15% of the animals on the planet then. You know beavers can hold their breath for 45 minutes? Did you know that orcas have an extra part of their brain than humans? Did you know crocodiles can go without food for 2 years? Hey, did you know cockroaches can live without their head for a few weeks? What exactly do you think makes someone superior to someone else?
You do not get to decide what makes someone superior and what doesn’t. And you do not get to take someone’s rights away based on what YOU think they are capable of. Do you think the same about disabled? Children? The elderly?
You can not do everything that animals can do. You can not do everything that humans have been able to do, either. You’re basing your superiority off standards set by HUMANS. I would like to see you live the lifestyle of a marine animal, a bird, a wolf, a giraffe, a fucking rat. And even if they do not fit your definition of “intelligent”, that gives you no right to murder, rape, torture, abuse, enslave and oppress them. They are capable of thought, they are conscious and aware, they are able to experience emotions and they are 100% CAPABLE OF FEELING PAIN. THAT is what should decide whether or not someone is equal to you. Not their fucking digestive system.
"Part of what psychedelics do is they decondition you from cultural values. This is what makes it such a political hot potato. Since all culture is a kind of con game, the most dangerous candy you can hand out is one which causes people to start questioning the rules of the game." - Terence McKenna

Both are designed to pierce the skin and admit fluids into the bloodstream, although it is often the case that the intended effects are polar opposites.
Artificial designs frequently imitate those of nature; in this case, mankind was approximately 25 million years late.
Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.How can you help?Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.
This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:Gallon size Ziplock bagsitems to go in the bags, such as:chap stickpackages of tissuestoothbrush and toothpastecombsoaptrail mixgranola barscrackerspack of gumband aidsmouthwashcoins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)hand wipesyou could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift cardAssemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.
