the crows have taken their pound of flesh and eaten it raw,
dragging their voices down the chalkboard sky.
medicated, i watch them feed with empty Auschwitz eyes,
every day is the same claustrophobic affair over again.
i miss the taste of axenic fear in my throat,
but my new world is monochrome and i am forced to swallow their synthetic ambrosia.
twisted into my fetal pose, i mark the walls misted from my metric breath,
they say those in glass houses.. but i have no stones to throw
or i would waste this crystal mausoleum from the inside.
they nailed my wings to the floor,
they keep me tranquilized and tell me this is home.
the shower drains are clotted with famous last words,
this is where savages and wandering savants come to die.
i am the leaden albatross around my own neck,
my metamorphosis brought me here.
Why respect religion?It is often said that we must respect the religious beliefs of others. Simply put, I don't. That is not to say that I see religious people as less deserving of equal protection, but I do not see their beliefs as fundamentally reasonable and worthy of respect, and I think that this claim that we must respect the rights of others undermines our ability to have substantive debates on moral and political issues, by treating certain ideas as immune from debate and criticism. Why, as an atheist, should I respect those who believe, on religious conviction, that atheists should be put to death? Should I not show them the same amount of respect they show me?Why respect religion?4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The evidence in favor of most religions is weak or nonexistent. I focus on the religions I am most familiar with, but I have reason to believe that other religions have the same general flaws, as these flaws appear to be intrinsic to religion and not simply features of a few specific religions. One key flaw in religion is reliance on faith.

Apparently, theres something wrong with having one. And having one with a very developed story that intertwines with the characters of said fandom (assume its Naruto and I WILL destroy you). What really is wrong with having one is beyond me, but it seems if you do a few stories with fan characters, or original characters to be specific, the story will go unread.
Really, are you that shallow-minded?
Ive been writing fanfictions on and off for years now, since 2004, varying between what my interests were at that point. So YES I have a Naruto one, BACK. OFF.

there always is a time to grow,
a time to live, a time to die
time to laugh, and time to sigh
under the weight of toil
working the soil
and when all's refined
all is dust.
But this is not a prophecy
or wise words long forgotten
but the world in plain sight
for all to see.
But even this revelation
is not an admission
of darkness breaking
across a violet sky.
No, it is a call to action.
A dawn awaits our setting sun
a dawn we see within our young.
And the only way we see it shine?
Toil and blood and aches and time--
Yes, time moves slowly, but even so

Review of Chapter Six
By Stephenie Meyer
So after many long days of keeping this thing as far from my physical person as possible, I must return to complete my duty. What is my duty you ask? Killing myself very slowly in the worst possible way ever. So, in order to do this task, I grab Sheepie and the copy of Twilight I borrowed from the bookstore with no intention of returning. [No, I'm dead serious, I may have apprehended that book without legal rights to do so.]
For a brief [and we mean brief] recap:
Bella Swan moves to Forks.
Meets Edward Sexy Pants.
Nothing of importance happens.
There. You're caught up.
I mean, I could delve into unnecessary detail about what happened in the five previous torture sessions I've put myself through for your sick entertainment, but then you'd just be lazy assholes. Go read the previous five chapters, you bastards.

1. You complain about being overweight.
You know those emo kids in the corner? The ones who bitch and moan about every little thing until you swear their heads will implode from being so angsty? Yeah. That's what you're like. If you complain about yourself all the time about something you usually have control over, then either DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT or STFU please. When you hear something enough times, you start to believe it- so if we hear you griping about how ugly and fat you are, what are we going to think about you? Let's face it, nobody likes hanging around whining people (which is why everybody hates little kids) so knock that shit off and you just might score a boyfriend.

"So, what are you doing on the roof . Again?" Asked Yuki, stopping a few feet away from the other boy.
"It doesn't matter to you," Kyo said without looking up. "Is that all you came to bother me about?"
"No. Dinner's ready and they chose me to come get you."
"I'm not hungry."
"But Tohru made us fish."
Kyo made no attempt to respond and the silence that followed went on for so long that he thought he was alone again. With a deep sigh, he brought his head down to his knees and started crying softly, until he felt something squeezing his shoulder. Yuki had sat next to him and was trying to console him by giving him a hug.
"Let me go!" Screamed Kyo as he tried to break away from the embrace. He didn't want to be seen crying, especially by his biggest enemy, but deep down having been hugged made him happy. "Leave me alone, you stupid rat!"

A young girl, about the age of eight, giggled as she ran wildly through the smog engulfed streets of London. Causing many eyes to turn on her, she turned into an alley way and disappeared from sight. She smirked to herself, taking one of the flowers in her hand and putting it into her hair. "Those English fools," she said to no one in particular as she walked aimlessly in the streets. 'Life it too precious to waste on a day like today,' she smiled to herself, feeling the raindrops beginning to start. She ran through the streets, not looking for shelter, but to reach her destination before it got too dark.
Coming across a cemetery she stopped, slowing looking at the gate and pushing it open. She smiled to hersel

Though let me just say that if there's spelling error or punctuation errors than I'm sorry in advance (I'm horrible when it comes to punctuation ). Once again this is just a story I'm writing when I'm bored and want my mind to wander to something else, so I'm not constantly checking for grammar errors every chapter.
Now I hope you guys like the story!

The fall turned out less painful then I though. Sure pain was soaring through every part of my body, but at least I wasn't dead right? The usual happened after we fell. Lilacnia screamed, half the school came out, everyone panicked, Rin fainted, Miku screamed, half the group of fan girls I have screamed, the other half fainted. You know everyday stuff.
At first I couldn't feel a thing. Except for the lack of air. The world was blurry and I was getting dizzy. About 15 minutes of screaming girls, fainting girls (and some weak boys), the ambulance finally came. It was good, because I was starting to go numb by then. Some dudes came out of the ambulance and put me on a stretcher and into the back of the ambulance. Rin (dragged in by Miku), Miku, and Lilacnia climbed into the back with me.

They had nothing to say to each other. And yet they never broke eye contact. Not blinking, and not making a sound. Fai stared up at Kurogane, confusion flitting briefly across his face, before he was once again hiding behind that trademark goofy grin. Kurogane continued to scowl down at the mage, obviously frustrated that his impulsive attempt to break through the smaller mans shell had failed. Theyd been friends for over a year now, and still the ninja knew next to nothing about his young traveling companion.
It had just been one kiss; short and sweet. But both men had been shocked into silence by Kuroganes unexpected actions. Finally breaking the awkward stare, Kurogane ran a calloused hand through his short black spikes, noting that he would need a haircut soon. When he looked back up, Fai was shaking with silent

Abe hurried to the smaller boys side, offering his hand and helping him up. He picked up the abandoned bag and handed it to the blonde haired boy.
He looked at him with questioning eyes, Are you okay?
The shorter boy dusted himself off and shyly nodded, not raising his head.

An Essay on Republican Capitalist PhilosophyAn Essay on Republican Capitalist Philosophy4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
I wrote this essay because Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan is the most ill-conceived and potentially counterproductive economical plan I have heard in recent history. Not only that, it seems to embody everything that is wrong with the republican way of thinking. I'm going to explain my objections to this plan, and also touch on the broader issues of republican capitalist ideals.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Cain's 9-9-9 plan is to limit income tax 9%, but introducing a 9% business transactions tax and a 9% federal sales tax. There's one crucial problem I immediately noticed, and to make it easier to see, I'll illustrate it with extreme examples from opposite ends of the spectrum.
Consider a poor person who barely makes enough to get by. He has to spend nearly 100% of his income because of his living expenses alone. Now consider a very wealthy person making $10,000,000 per year. He could be very frivolous and still
