"Comrade, I did not want to kill you… . But you were only an idea to me before, an abstraction that lived in my mind and called forth its appropriate response… . I thought of your hand-grenades, of your bayonet, of your rifle; now I see your wife and your face and our fellowship. Forgive me, comrade. We always see it too late. Why do they never tell us that you are poor devils like us, that your mothers are just as anxious as ours, and that we have the same fear of death, and the same dying and the same agony—Forgive me, comrade; how could you be my enemy?"
- A passage from All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Remarque
Oh my goodness, the world could do without like, 65% of people on my campus.
Are you asking for famous or influential individuals? Because then I’d have to admit that I’m hardly political enough to make any sort of confident statement on that account. I mean, I could say like…Hitler…but that’d be cliche.
So how ‘bout we say ‘kinds’ of people, in which case I will say misogynists, homophobes, bible thumpers, people with no sense of humor, annndd…twilight fans.
I have turned down 1) plans to go see Legion for free and 2) plans to see Zombieland at my campus theater while waiting allllll night for a phone call that came ten minutes ago and canceled the original plans.
So guess who’s sitting home alone once again on a Friday night?
“The Hundt Exclusion Principle. No, the Pauli Exclusion Principle. Hudnt, Pauli…some dead German chemist. Probably a Nazi bastard anyway. Ha, saw that movie last night, "Inglorious Basterds"….fuckin’ hilarious,”—My Organic Chem professor today in class
Also. While I love X Games. I hate that when the girls are up, they’re all “She’s doing tricks like the guys.” and it seems like the chicks are just… letting people go on praising them for doing much smaller tricks than the boys. THey talk about them almost like children. Like they’re impressed with a 900 from a girl, but they just EXPECT double cork 1080s from every guy who throws down. I’m not cool with that. Today a chick hit a 1260 in competition. The extreme sports world just needs some women to step up and be like “Fuck that. I could kick the guys’ asses if I had the chance.”
That’s always how I felt during archery competitions. I could’ve kicked any of those boys’ asses. AND I was pulling 35 pounds while the boys on my team pulled 30 or less.
