“I’m nervous about our civic culture. I’m not sure the Internet is largely the cause of it. It’s certainly the cause of careless writing. People who get used to blurbing things on the Internet are never going to be good writers. And some things I don’t understand about it. For example, I don’t know why anyone would like to be “friended” on the network. I mean, what kind of a narcissistic society is it that people want to put out there, This is my life, and this is what I did yesterday? I mean … good grief. Doesn’t that strike you as strange? I think it’s strange.”

Anonymous asked: What are the best backgrounds / settings for the dick pic?
a bedroom is a perfectly acceptable setting for a dick pic, so is a bathroom. just kindly consider how a particularly jarring bedspread or a visible pile of dirty laundry might detract from the overall tone of your dick pic :+)

“I typed in name after name, and the results were the same. Any name not strictly used by African-Americans brought up no criminal photo galleries. Smiling beauty shots for Jennifer and Amy, prison close-ups for Shaniqua and Laquisha. Same went for Keyshawn and Jaquan, but none for Shawn and Jason. Hispanics may have crime rates on par with blacks, but common male Hispanic names seem to be immune. Juan, Carlos, Jose, Manuel and Pablo surely pass the “Google test.” Needless to say, Devonte and Tevin resulted in my now-expected display of unsmiling mugs.”
— An expecting black mom on finding the right name for her son. Her fear? “My unborn son, a seven-month old fetus, could have all the world’s unspoken markings of a criminal — the wrong skin color and the wrong name.”
