I think some people must’ve thought Achilles to be so cruel for not burying Patroclus’ body because to do so was the equivalent of keeping his soul in a state of unrest, but then I think that Achilles must’ve heard so many stories, too. He must’ve heard of how Aphrodite heard Pygmalion’s cries and turned his statue, Gala, to life so that he could be with this woman whom he loved. He must’ve heard of Orpheus and Eurydice, and how Apollo had allowed Orpheus to go to the underworld and bring Eurydice from the dead if only he would not turn back to look at her while they escaped. And maybe he heard of Psyche, too, and how she fought so valiantly and found so much favor to be with Eros once more.
And I think that’s partly why Achilles held onto Patroclus. There must’ve been a million reasons, but maybe Achilles was waiting for mercy. Maybe he was waiting for his story to turn. Maybe he was hoping for the gods to remember the age in which they were kinder and more understanding to the humans that toiled and heaved and cried beneath Olympus. There’s no patron god of mercy and second chances, but perhaps Achilles was hoping that he, holding onto his Patroclus, his everything, could incite that god or goddess into existence.
I don’t think white SJWs realize how patronizing and disrespectful they are to people of other races. They use the term “people of color” and insist that it’s somehow better than “colored”, which is a slur,and use it freely despite the fact that many people have expressed discomfort with the term. And when people say that this label makes them feel uneasy, they get shot down.
This is something I’ve been wanting to write since I came back to tumblr in December, but couldn’t figure out a good way to put until now. Before anyone screams at me for being an able-bodied ableist, I’m going to put it out there that I’ve had a diagnosed muscular…
anti-tumblr sjw?????? like wtf? where do u get off thinking u know what ur talking about? clearly u don't have an understanding of what's going on in this country, not with social issues, and judging from that blog discription u must be some white republican trashy chick who buys her coffee from starbucks and was prez in high school. u need to pipe the fuck down and have a lesson, little girrl. we don't need your anti-fem bullshit clouding up our tags so stay the fuck outta my face.
Yep, I’m hella white.
Also hella republican.
and DAMN, is that a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology? No? Oh, alright.
In short HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I really love how you people can’t read a damn thing, even when it’s in front of your fucking face.
While I’m on the topic of hyperbikes: the Suzuki Hayabusa was made specifically to take the title of fastest bike from Honda’s Super Blackbird, and it shows in the name! Hayabusa is the Japanese word for peregrine falcon, a bird known for dive attacks in excess of 200 mph, and known to prey on blackbirds >:D
Whenever a customer has a helmet or is getting something bike related I ask what they ride. I just met a guy with a cbr1100xx.
If you don’t know, that’s the Super Blackbird, which held the record for fastest stock production motorcycle until the Hayabusa was introduced in 1999.
Life update, because I feel like typing it up:
I have a new job! I’m finished with my old job after Sunday, gonna work at a motorcycle dealership in the parts department. It’s full time work with commission, so I’ll be making a considerably higher wage.
Hopefully I’ll have a better bike within the next few months. I’m still deciding what to do with my Savage once I’ve upgraded, I’m thinking about cutting it down and making it into a bobber, just because I can.
also in the near future, I’ll be teaching my dear friend @bohemianrationalist to ride! and she’ll get a bike of her own! excited!
“Why do police have quotas? If a doctor went around intentionally sneezing on people to get more patients, that would be seen as a travesty to their profession. But police, can sit around and wait for someone to turn on a red light or commit other mundane ‘offenses’ because they have quotas to meet. Quotas are all the proof we need that policing is not a public service vocation; it’s a business and a subsidiary of Wall Street.”—
