The Deep End

the worst thing you can say to someone is ‘you’re too sensitive’ because that’s basically saying ‘you feel things more deeply and fully than i do and this inconveniences me because now i have to be more mindful of my own actions’ 

you’re not too sensitive, the world is just callous and stubborn. sensitivity doesn’t make you weak and callousness doesn’t make you strong.

When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit. 

That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.

Gotta be honest, it’s super weird, but incredibly cool to see my sponsor give me a shoutout on Facebook.

We’ve looked a lot at privacy from the Big Brother standpoint: how the National Security Agency or corporate giants like Google track us online — say for political reasons or to make money from ads.
But there’s another kind of privacy concern that is a lot more intimate. You could call it Little Brother. Though it’s really more like husbands and wives, lovers and exes who secretly watch their partner — from a distance. They are cyberstalking — using digital tools that are a lot cheaper than hiring a private detective.
NPR investigated these tools, also known as spyware, and spoke with domestic violence counselors and survivors around the country. We found that cyberstalking is now a standard part of domestic abuse in the U.S.

This is an illustrated vignette of one of the stories (Saving Face) written by the mysterious, poignant and incredibly hilarious Canadian teacher, YOUSUCK,SIR.

I have never binge read a blog until I came across yousucksir. I spent three hours devouring anecdotes of pedagogy. It made me want to go back to school to finally pursue a masters in art education.

Hope you like!

I have never reblogged anything on You Suck, Sir—just because it wouldn’t fit the content I have in mind for my followers.  But after being knocked speechless by Laura Grace Marchi’s blog, I have to make an exception.  This is beautiful beyond words and I’m struggling to express the appreciation I have of her gift.  Please follow her, reblog, and let her know how gifted she is.

Heavyweight: The Dying Division. - MMA Opinion - MMA Opinion

theanticool:

Give it a read. Brought up an interesting point that only 6 heavyweights on the roster are under 30. Realistically, a couple years from now guys like Barnett, Arlovski, Werdum, Nelson, and Hunt are only going to be closer to the likes of Big Nog, Mir, and Reem’s chin than they are to Cain and JDS (both of whom have history with injury and/or have taken serious damage). Seriously, the way JDS throw his punches, I can see hand injuries being a major problem for him moving forward.


What say you fans out there? Is the future of the jigglyweight division as bleak as this writer thinks?

I mostly agree. The fact that many heavyweights outside of the UFC aren’t very driven either means there aren’t that many exciting prospects to choose from either.
