Alone by Edgar Allan Poe
From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.
Okay. WBC should be arrested for this. They’re literally taking it too far. Gaga is harassed and hated by people who think she’s some “dumb dyke who sluts around in clothing made for rich assholes”, when in reality, she is the most sweetest person. She’s given a weelchair from live preformances to a disabled fan, she’s taken photos with the Homeless and gave them money, she supports lgbt, she says no to bullying, she is doing things right. Oh, and one song about Judas who betrayed Jesus, a song about love, makes her this inhumane demon.
No. Fucking stop.
She will literally fucking drop dead one of these days from all of this shit, crying her fucking eyes out. That’s if she already hasn’t.
holy fucking shit.
I hate that they always misquote god.. Yes he hates fags.. but as in the British form of the word.. God hates smokers.
The thing I keep banging on about is that he doesn’t know what age he is. He’s lying. How could he know, unless he’s marking it on a wall? He could be 8,000 years old, he could be a million. He has no clue. The calendar will give him no clues.

Is that so?
reblogging because I fucking want it to be goddamned true
Most of the time, it is true, because swear words are stored in the ‘emotions area’ of the brain, rather than the linguistics area.
SO MARTIN FREEMAN IS JESUS
Well fuck me
Just to add with this with a bit of science, I went to a lecture on swearing once, and we were provided with a diagram of the brain. Swear words are, indeed, stored in the limbic system (the parts of the brain that deal with emotion). That’s why when we experience a shock, be it touching something hot or being given a surprise gift or having to suddenly swerve, we tend to swear on reflex. Just as an animal might mewl, we swear, because it’s the best audible sign of shock our body can produce, and the one most likely to make our emotions evident to other people, and hence receive help if we need it.
rebageling this for nebet-ren as much as for x, because SCIENCE, MOTHERFUCKERS, indeed.
I REALLY LOVE LANGUAGE IS THIS OBVIOUS YET AHHH.
I would have gone another step and stomped the shit out of the phone, then threw it back at the asshole who thought they were important or intelligent enough to text and drive at the same time.
I totally agree with what happened to that person’s phone but man that guy is legitimately -lucky- he didn’t get a gun pulled on him.
