    You cannot depend on the government to take care of your every need. It is better to empower yourself to be able to take care of yourself in every way possible.

    Father' day did not originate here. Good progress away from cultural appropriation. It is jut a decolonised advertisement.

    I think now is the time to accept that we need alien overlords. Humanity is utterly incapable of sorting itself out.

    I honestly think the people who get outraged at this type of thing have a low form of autism. It is the same type of rage you get if you make a mild change to the shape of the pasta on an autistic kid's plate.
