    CNN/MSNBC/Fox News is packaged with cable packages so for many it's their primary media source. The things these networks obsess over and sensationalize — politics, terrorism, more politics, and celebrity real-talk —are the shittiest aspects of culture. You can't curate that out for yourself and if cable news is your lens to the world you're getting a perverted view of it. It's anxious and needy.

    The kicker here is that my impression of Al Jazeera according to CNN/Fox News was that it was a terrorist sympathizing news network therefore to be avoided. Facebook provided me with a counter point of view and it's been terrific.
    I think you over estimate the average facebook user.

    They check facebook about every 30 minutes and do not control their feed. They look at whatever the facebook equation serves them up, probably 32 times a day, or more.

    That's the worst thing of all. The finger snapping shit because some people get "Triggered" by clapping. So many fucking sensitive pussies in that video.

  3. The same thing happens in Anarchist communities. People turn it into The Righteousness Wars.

    Being sick would get you out of work.

    Funerals would get you out of class.

    No one fills in to do your homework when you're I'll.

    Etc, etc.

    College is its own little colusium of bullshit.
    The point of going away to college is that you have to figure shit out on your own but have the benefit of being in an enclosed bubble. Picking a major and filling your schedule is not REALLY important but it's good for a young person to figure that stuff out.

    These people are looking for surrogate parents to protect them like their real parents did in high school. Helicopter parenting coming home to roost.

    Well it used to work like that. I'm sure it solo is for many. My parents basically didn't give a shit about what I did at school. These people are crying to this old dude because he didn't take care of them.

    I meant good luck to these kids getting second parents. I couldn't get some of these teachers to be humans let alone parental figures.

    Burn the flesh off your writing hand? You still take final. Fuck you ip.

  8. I never looked at college as real world prep. It was always information gathering so I could get a job or explore ideas. The independence associated with school came from being away from parents, sure, but that was the result of geography. If you go to a school around or in the town over from your family home you aren't going to break away (until you get your own place).

    This is such a great song, but that video needs more blood.
