I actually just shuddered reading that line.
Read the comics and you too can understand all that is wrong with that apparent solutionthere’s spiderman comics?
what did you think spiderman was based off of?
I thought they just saw how popular batman was and swapped spider for bat
Annie Leibovitz’s Disney Dream Portraits
I like how there’s just two pictures of Jack Sparrow
I was going to just like this but then there was Jack Sparrow. Twice.
Diogenes was the shit. He was easily one of the best philosophers ever. He made himself the least wealthy person, hence living in a “Barrel”. He also, upon seeing a child drinking from a river with his hands, smashed his only wooden bowl claiming to be “Bested by a child”. He did public stunts to make a point towards customs and norms including eating in the marketplace in Athens which was generally not acceptable. When Plato described humans as “Featherless Bipeds” he plucked a chicken and brought it to him, saying “here’s your man”. Plato changed that description to “Featherless bipeds with arms”.
And here’s where it gets real.
Diogenes the Cynic became well known all over. In fact, Alexander the great, the one man who could have anyone killed just because, went out of his way to find him. Upon meeting Diogenes, whom was laying on the ground, he said something to the extent of “Ah, the great Diogenes! Is there anything that I, Alexander the Great, can do you?”. Diogenes’ response was a crude “Yes, Get out of my sunlight.”
But, however, Alexander came back another time, to find Diogenes sifting through a pile of bones. Alex inquired “Diogenes, what are you doing sifting through that pile of bones?” Diogenes the Cynic responded “I’m trying to distinguish between the bones of your father, and that of a slave. I cannot tell the difference.” An insult that any man would want the other beheaded for indeed. But no, not Alexander.
Alexander went on to later say that if he were not Alexander the Great, he would wish to be Diogenes.
Dude’s a motherfuckingbadass.
My new fav person. Ever.
The other day, two of my professors brought up Diogenes just out of the blue in two different classes on the same day and I was literally the only other person in class who knew who he was and I was SO sad because he’s awesome.
ask-the-king-tamaki-suoh asked: Hey do you want to be a part of my beta readers? When ever I finish a chapter of the book I'm writing I'll send you a copy of the draft and we can discuss What you liked or disliked etc. is that ok?
I am <i>soooooooooooooo</i> honored you’d ask me! But to be honest, I’m having a difficult time in college right now and will probably not be able to get on tumblr much or read anything other than textbooks until this semester is over. Sorry. :/
nice to meet you!
when i was in kindergarten i got to shake a tarantulas hand
a bunch of people from the zoo brought us a bunch of bugs to see and the tarantula really slowly stuck his footy out at me??? and the lady said ‘that means she wants to shake your hand!’ so i wiggled it like in the gif and ever since i have been convinced that tarantulas have excellent manners
my best friend is an atheist, but whenever she is comforting me with something in my life she uses examples of God to help me because she knows it makes me feel better, and vice versa, when i comfort her i never bring up God because i respect that it’s not something that helps or works for her
i feel like this is a model of how the world should work
that is perfect
