Gone swimming (with the fishes)

                              Gone swimming (with the fishes)

Sometimes you just have to smile, pretend everything’s okay, hold back the tears and just walk away.

Hello. I don’t know if what I’m writing actually reaches anyone. I get this distinct feeling Tumblr is just a ton of people exchanging a small percentage of original material. Most people live in isolation, or communicate amongst themselves, in their own ‘gang’. So, the blog goes on an indefinite hiatus. Not that anybody will actually give a God-almighty flying fuck with extra cheese, but there it is. If I find a good reason to keep making myself laugh, we’ll re-open the shop once again someday.

And now back to your regularly scheduled Memes/ Justin Beiber/Avengers/ cute-funny cats programming.

What will set the Bush library apart ? I know, I know !

It won’t have that many books. 

But WAIT, there’s more: It will be the only Library with an entire wing dedicated to Books on Malapropisms.

We are making steadfast progress.' - George W. Bush

You know, I just noticed my last few posts have been a bit political and bitter,
but some things just get you incensed, and there’s no denying it. So, to counterbalance, here’s a heaping cup of cute cats for ya. 

Not in their backyard.

Seems like legislators in Texas think it’s PERFECTLY REASONABLE to place a fertilizer plant that stores 20 tons of anhydrous ammonia (A product that forms an explosive mixture when combined with air) within spitting distance of a Middle School, a High School and a nursing home?

I’ll bet you not ONE of the people who approved that have family living there.

The right to bear (and shoot) arms.

So let me get this straight: The US House of Representatives can’t agree on a weapons background check, but they’re more than happy approving CISPA (the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act)? And the measure got bi-partisan support: it won by 288-127, including 92 Democrats no less.

Some frickin’ leaders of the Free World you guys are.

Biffy Clyro - Folding Stars

Scottish band like the Foo Fighters, but much quirkier and better (and I like the Foo, BTW). I’d start with Infinity Land, see if you like it.  

(The song was inspired by the death of Simon Neil’s mother, Eleanor).  

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier
I hope you are folding stars

For a glance, the world,
for a smile, the heavens,
for a kiss; I don’t know
what I would give you for a kiss!

You know, I was brought up Catholic. But as I grew up I veered towards a type of Catholic-Agnosticism. I don’t often agree with religious Dogma (and I include all religions here).  I’ve always thought the concept of Heaven and Hell was just ludicrous, made up by humans. I still kinda do, but… 

… if it does exist, I hope the bastards who put those bombs in Boston rot in Hell  forever.

Yeah, I know it’s shocking. Some people actually don’t upload
any cat pictures at all.
