“Oh Lord. Give me coffee to change the things I can change, and red wine to accept the things I can’t.” —

and wisdom to know when to just reach for the vodka instead.

And strength to say no to the tequila.

I have seen this post before and I’ll say now what I said then: reworking the serenity prayer to include coping via alcohol is kind of messed up and makes me intensely uncomfortable tbh.

i love the mountain goats because john darnielle has summed up my entire existence with the lyrics “i am this great unstable mass of blood and foam,” and nothing makes me feel more okay and powerful than that line

add the next line and you have my life

'…sin, young man, is when you treat people as things. Including yourself. That's what sin is.'

'It's a lot more complicated than that…'

'No. It ain't. When people say things are more complicated than that, they means they're getting worried that they won't like the truth. People as things, that's where it starts.'

'Oh, I'm sure there are worse crimes—'

'But they STARTS with thinking about people as things…'

the trans clothes finder is like a week old and cis people have already asked if they can take the clothes they like

you’ve gotta be fucking kidding me

I wish I was surprised

I wish I was surprised by this, or the “AND YOU PEOPLE CALL THIS EQUALITY?” notes on this post.

Um, fellow cis folk, “equality” is NOT already having the whole world and THEN snatching the tiny space trans folk have managed to carve out for themselves!

Do these fucks go try to pick stuff out of the clothes donated to shelters when they could afford to buy their own? Or are they only greedy fucks who don’t see how absolutely unreasonable that behavior is when they are trying to take resources earmarked for trans people?

I know the answer, of course.

Every single one of The Amazing Atheist’s fans those helpful disinterested outside observers who’s replying, reblogging, or sending me messages saying words to the effect of, “Come on, it should be obvious it’s fake when you get to the part where he says __________”…

Yeah, what you’re saying I should have done there?

That’s what I did.

I watched a minute and a half of one of the videos, and even though there was nothing quite as hyperbolic as the examples you’re providing, I still new I was not watching a factual account. I didn’t have to get all the way through a single one to tell that.

But because not a single one of you believes in reading, critical thinking, or anything but religiously following your almighty prophet and savior, you’ve somehow completely overlooked the fact that this was what my post was about.

I’m starting to feel like I’ve fallen into the Twilight Zone here, but it’s actually not that weird or inexplicable.. this is exactly how every interaction with ideological atheists goes. 

Once an in-group has decided that they somehow have the fundamental attribute of objective logic, skepticism, and a grasp on empirical reality, then objective logic, skepticism, and any grasp on empirical reality all go out the window.

AE is and remains better than your faves.

midgardian etiquette 101: when going to their homes, hang your coat first or in some cases, your mjolnir.

naw maybe it’s actually asgardian custom to check your weapons at the door

It was medieval custom to check your weapons at the door of the meadhall before greeting the king of the place you were going to. It was courteous and showed respect. You can see it in Beowulf. 

what i don’t understand is how that hook can hold the mjolnir.

the hook is worthy

the hook is worthy

Peter Pan would disagree.

I’ve not read the comics but I always figured Mjolnir wasn’t heavy so much as stubborn, and if it decided it didn’t wanna move it just wouldn’t. It sits on Loki, rather than crushing him in Thor 1, and in Avengers it rests on the floor of the ship, and trying to pick it up Hulk starts breaking the floor with his weight, but Mjolnir doesn’t seem to weight anything at all (If it was as heavy as Hulk implied, it would drag the whole ship to the ground right?). Mjolnir isn’t heavy, cos its not going down, instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. Hence, the hook doesn’t hold it, it merely remains in place.

so what you’re trying to say is that Mjolnir is like a chicken head

 instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. 
OK SO WHAT YOU ARE SAYINGIS THAT WHEN THIS HAMMER WAS FORGED IN THE HEART OF A STAR IT BECAME A FIXED QUANTUM POINTAND THE UNIVERSE MOVES AROUND IT—AND THOR IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE PROPER RESONANCE TO INTERACT WITH IT ON A QUANTUM LEVELAND SO HE IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE LEVERAGE REQUIRED TO SHIFT THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE AROUND THE FIXED POINT THAT IS MJOLNIR
THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE

DUDE YOU GUYS SCIENCED THORS HAMMER THAT IS AWESOME
