The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.
Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.
Fuck your pretentious shit.
"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"
Actually, two friends on the bus started texting each other… they were sitting side by side. And its not technology its the laziness of human beings
I’m tired of seeing white people treating poor countries as if they were their very special emotional playground.
Racists travel to under developed countries under the guise of ‘appreciating their culture’ or ‘searching for themselves’ (whatever that means) or any other seemingly thoughtful premise.. They enjoy the ‘exotic’ foods, marvel at the ‘exotic’ landscapes, snap photos (without asking first) of those very ‘exotic’ natives.
They have profound revelations about how in the western world we have much more commodities than necessary, and how these poor rural simpletons are so happy with the little they own, cause they’re blissful savages, much less complex than the average white US citizen.
Some of them even manage to say utterly disrespectful stuff (e.g.’oh look at these people living in the middle of nowhere’ (cameron diaz) or that ‘they defecate in the woods ‘hunched like animals’ (drew barrymore) and the worst part is, they don’t even seem to realize.
… Then they go back to their countries, with a serious white savior complex, and show all their relatives photos those wonderful, smiling exotic natives, just before complaining about illegal immigrants taking all their jobs.

"Scott," Derek said irritably, coming back from the kitchen with a glass of water. “I saw that.”
"Ooh, busted," Stiles sang as Scott pouted and moved his piece to jail.
Lydia smirked triumphantly, but Derek pointed a finger at her and said, “You too.”
"I’m not sure I understand what’s going on here," Allison said hesitantly. She’d come in late and wasn’t playing, watching the board with her brow furrowed.
"Easy," Stiles said flippantly. "These are time-honored Stilinski house rules. There is a banker," he pointed at himself, "and a policeman," he pointed at Derek, "and players are allowed to make money in any way possible. If it’s not technically legal - like how Scott just tried to bribe Lydia into giving him Baltic Ave - you have to do it without getting caught."
