Sick and impatient

Moving on a little further.

Emily is hilarious. From the bathroom, I hear her yelling funny things at the tv while she watches Dancing With the Stars and eats the Godiva chocolate I brought her. She has her grandma glasses on and it’s so cute in the strangest way. I’m in love with a pregnant woman.

Columbus Day Fun Fact: A Catholic preist named Bartolomé de las Casas, who transcribed Columbus’s journals, wrote the following regarding the genocide:

"There were 60,000 people living on this island, including the Indians; so that from 1494 to 1508, over 3,000,000 people had perished from war, slavery, and the mines. Who in future generations will believe this? I myself writing it as a knowledgeable eyewitness can hardly believe it."

Hipster economics are standard economics because hipsters are everything the US economy has ever wished for in one convenient package. It’s a group consisting largely of young, upper-middle class people with very little conviction, who will spend large amounts of money to maintain their own comfort and the appearance of diversity and rebellion. They are activists as long as it’s easy, poor as long as it doesn’t involve dirt or hunger, and selfless as long as they don’t stand to lose anything. They represent the sanitizing of national issues so that they can be discussed without being addressed. And all you have to do to control them is use some reverse psychology. They’re not rebels, they’re not even malicious, because they’re not anything except a bunch of kids playing pretend. They’ll eventually grow up and become bankers, lawyers and politicians, just like their parents…
