Oh, I didn’t even realize the new World Trade Center was already being constructed…
runalovegood: “We ask God to cure us of our hardships, without ever stopping to consider that our hardships are curing us.” — Yasmin Mogahed (via arabarabarab) Excuse me, but what the heck even. No. No. Just no! This is the exact kind of idea that perpetuates violence in the Islamic community. Screw that, no, not okay! The idea of “asking God to cure hardships” seems so...
Pursuit would be fudel.
runalovegood: DID I MENTION THAT “MULTICULTURALISM” IS HARD AND PROBABLY IMPOSSIBLE OHGOD. ETA: I mean, it’s not impossible, but my therapist pointed out to me that it’s impossible for there to not be a dominant culture or w/e, I guess? So much blogging!
2 papers, 4 exams, 12 days, 4500 words, coffee^∞.
kaylen-false: I think we can measure my rapidly decreasing levels of sanity with the following equation: ≈ Σ (πⁿ)(¼√∞) We can take the infinite sum (for coffee to the infinite power) of the equation and start at 12 because A) that’s the year of school I’m in, B) it’s the year in general, and C) it’s the number of days I have to complete this nonsense and therefore the point at which one...
Go to google and search “zerg rush” Just do it.
It’s fun to easily fix issues that my boss was having trouble fixing.
Stop everything. Today is National Pretzel Day? Need to celebrate…
I think “Vercingetorix” would make a good interjection.
I opened a savings account. Go me.
There’s this sign nearby advertising (iirc) a condo for sale. $45,000. Cash only. O_o

runalovegood: I need to work on tutorial. But just… walking to the library I realized how abandoned campus is and I panicked and had to sit down and just collect myself but it’s scary, and it shouldn’t be scary, but everything is scary. I think I’d gotten somewhat used to the idea of being alone, but then… You have social things to look forward to in the near future. For now, if you...
runalovegood: I can’t decide which library to go to!! cincinnatilibrary.org
runalovegood replied to your post: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Runa see also: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ru… “Runa is 9.5 miles (15.3 km) south of Summersville.” Wiki knows where you are!
[The internet] interprets censorship as damage and routes around it
I kind of want to make a blog called startjohngreen.
I don’t like using car horns. They sound angry, like I’m yelling. And I just can’t bring myself to (over-)assert myself like that.
exponentiate reblogged your post: The United States Department of Education has… Is that tuition per year?? Here’s the article.
The United States Department of Education has started posting online net costs of universities across the country, and Miami University sits at the top of the public university list with a net cost of $22,303. Oops.
I hope what happened in the latest Korra is the thing they changed energybending to. I wasn’t a big fan of the “lights shooting out from everywhere” animation for energybending.
I was thinking about the Earth Kingdom in Avatar, and how Emperor Chin was conquering/uniting it, and realized he’s probably based on Qin Shi Huang, which the wiki seems to confirm.
I made an mp3 version of paigelfinch’s “I Guess It’s All Still Fun in the End” and uploaded it to sendspace if anyone’s interested. Notes: this is ripped from the Youtube video. I cut off her introduction, obviously. I also shortened the gaps throughout the song to make it a little more cohesive-sounding.
My job is more or less fixing errors in my company’s application, but sometimes I’ll see a bunch of errors that I don’t need to deal with, because it’s not our division.

sharksareawesome: linkeepsitreal: *: The economy in the Avatar universe is apparently fascinating to me. linkeepsitreal: I wonder if Amon has thought about the greater economic implications of what he’s planning do. We’ve seen that plenty of businesses and public services… I was trying to think of jobs that wouldn’t benefit from being able to bend. Merchants are an obvious...
Why does today feel like October?
Wait, the LA Times Book Festival has John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Tara Strong + a My Little Pony panel? Why must it be on the opposite side of the country. Gah.
A few years ago, Tim Berners-Lee apologized for the two slashes in URLs (http://tumblr.com).
I haven’t posted anything today. Let’s fix that.
runalovegood: Right okay actually sitting here crying in happiness for Zuko and Katniss and just. I want their lives and their strength and their courage. …Remus would be on that list if SOMEONE hadn’t killed him off. And Chell. She remained resolute and resourceful in an atmosphere of extreme pessimism.
runalovegood: Hi. I need someone to squee with on this massive internal level about ZUKO and all the hope he represents for me and just !!! I’ve just barely brought HP into therapy, and like, A:TLA would be useful, but it’s so difficult to bring in a whole new world of mythology to an outsider =\ I discussed A:TLA with my boss during my interview for my current job. You never know who...
Pining for the fjords.
runalovegood: I have things I could have done but haven’t and I’m kind of not liking myself for it. How do you do adulthood? Today’s vlogbrothers, “Growing up and Adulthood Questions Answered.”
As a result, London 2012 looks likely to be the most petty-minded and joyless Olympics so far.
runalovegood: I have things I could have done but haven’t and I’m kind of not liking myself for it. Like seeing a doctor? How do you do adulthood? On the bright side, my hair looks nice today. Not that it matters in the slightest. Does it look pink? On the not-so-bright side, there are sharp pains in my chest when I try breathing. We need to orchestrate a way for you to see a doctor...
