I’d say the Bible has been proven false on so many things that it hardly makes a difference if it gets a few right… and that predicting a war-torn part of the world will continue to be war-torn in the future is not exactly an impressive prediction. It’s also incredibly vague and people interpret…
The Gashadokuro are such a cool folklore concept.
My favorite thing is this idea that they somehow are able to silently stalk people despite being almost 100-foot tall skeletons, because no one looks up.
Gashadokuro aka the starving skeletons are the reanimated and combined bones of the victims of starvation. Up to a hundred feet tall, they are heralded by the sound of bells ringing in the ears of their victims. They reach down from above to capture people and bit their heads off. The Gashadokuro haunt the darkness after midnight.
I’ve been waiting for this post all my life
the disclaimer though
reblogging again because I actually read the disclaimer this time…
Anonymous asked: TJ, I feel like I'm being corrupted by my distaste for humans. I'm in love with the human race on some level, and then I see the pervasiveness of stupidity and bigotry in so many fellow humans. Feeling righteousness in my anger used to be satisfying, now I feel like it's eating me alive, partly because I feel like I can't find community. I'm desperate for connection on an intellectual and ethical level, but can't find it. How have you survived?
By watching Star Trek.
Its sad how often groups meant for equality end up ostracizing. They become the very evil they vowed to destroy.
Anonymous asked: How do you battle overwhelming apathy?
I don’t have to. Sorry.
reptile0009 asked: Do you think that we live in probably the whiniest, most self obsessed, and entitled generation in the history of mankind? I mean, just think about it. Anita Sarkeesian is probably the most famous and influential person on the internet right now, and she got there by whining incessantly about she things she finds “sexist.”
It all depends on your perspective. Are they whiney or are the passionate? Are they self-obsessed or are they just trying to assert self-confidence in a world that suddenly seems too big for any of us to make a difference or stand out? Are they entitled or are they waking up to the entitlements of their elders and the wealthy elite and rejecting the system that created disparities between themselves and those groups?
