Imagine if trees gave off wifi signals. We would be planting so many trees and we’d probably save the planet too.
Too bad they only produce the oxygen we breathe
I’ve lived through tragedies, fucked up most every year.
Another dead end and another chance just to turn it around.
Watching the rise and fall of each and every day;
Any chance it’s getting old?
There’s no way!
[No Regrets by Authority Zero (12:34)]
I can’t say I regret much, if anything at all. I say what I mean and mean what I say, assuming I’m fully informed.
I’ve done things I’m not particularly proud to say I’ve done. But each and every one of them has made me who I am today and if I regret anything at all in this life, it’s not realizing sooner that regret is a waste of time.
Once something happens, there’s nothing you can do to change it, you can only learn from it. That’s something it took me a very long time to come to realize and understand, and you should too.
Once upon a time, I got in a fight with one of my very best friends. Because this is a poor example, it was resolved the next day and everything was good. But occasionally I still think back to that time. Not because I regret it or want to change something about it, but instead to learn from it.
I hope this helps you and I hope you have no regrets either, anon.
These scars tell a story; the calm right after the storm.
That change of pace that’s left you wondering what it was all for.
Tearing you down again, the puzzle pieces it broke.
But through all it seems, we’ve only grown strong!

Remember this story? This college student, Elizabeth Daly, was walking out of a grocery store with two other girls and a case of La Croix when plainclothes officers started following her.
Exhibit A: The offending beverage.
Not realizing they were police officers, she got in her car — which only made the situation worse:
Now 21, Daly said she had been terrified when strangers surrounded her car and began pounding on the windows. She couldn’t roll down a window without starting the car, and when she did, one agent jumped on the hood and another pulled a gun, she has said repeatedly since the incident.
Elizabeth dialed 911 and started driving away, still unaware that the men terrorizing her were, in fact, officers of the law. Once the 911 operator confirmed that they were not random men assaulting her, but rather random men with badges, she stopped the car, only to be arrested, charged with assault, and jailed overnight. “She has suffered from tremors since the June incident, she said.”
Now, she’s suing the state for $40 million over the incident, and I wish her well in the suit. Unfortunately, however, if she wins that money will come not from the offending officers but from the taxpayers of Virginia.
As I’ve written before, police should be just as responsible for the costs of their abusive behavior as the rest of us — and that includes paying settlements. The police are not a special class of citizens. They are not absolved of responsibility for their crimes because they wear a badge. They are not above the law. In fact, if anything, as enforcers of the law, they should be subject to greater scrutiny.
Requiring taxpayers rather than the guilty officers to cover settlements significantly lowers the cost to police of engaging in abusive behavior — and that’s not a cost I want to see lowered.
"I became obsessed with turtles. I bought six of them and put them in a bathtub. They show no emotion, they’re so inanimate. It’s the complete opposite of what dogs are, I can’t stand dogs, they’re too willing to please. I like cats. Animals that require attention. Turtles have this fuck you attitude, ‘I’m stuck in this tank, I’m miserable and I’m not going to perform for you.’" - Kurt Cobain.
