George de Mestral invented velcro and it was patented in 1955.

That must mean I know at least one person older than velcro. Woah, does that mean that John Mccain is older than Velcro? Must look that up.

*While looking it up* "Make Sarah Palin take the INS test"? Do they have the questions online? Kinda makes America look like a club. Answer these questions to pass! Other countries do that? Wonder how many people in the US could pass.

Ha-ha-ha-Waaaaowwwww are they really asking that? You could really come up with some really snarky/smartmouth answers for these. Babby Pissed-off-about-Bush Harp would have loved to answer some of these. So would Northland-True-Blue-Kerry-Stanning-Air-America-Radio-directly-Injected-Into-Veins Harp. But even today's Grown=up-and-No-Longer-a-Screaming-Activist-Just-Gonna-Keep-Trolling-and-LOLing Harp sees some lulz opportunities in there.

And after looking for a long time (and getting hella distracted) I found this thing you might also love- Mike Smith's Snarky Answers to the Leaky Cauldron Harry Potter Test.
Heh... interesting indeed. I'll check that out...

I remember Mike Smith's snarks from a while back - I probably should check them out again.
(Myself, I always liked the books [except for OOTP], but eh... I got into fandom via snark communities, and I'm always fond of snark. The target didn't particularly matter. If the book looks like a Mary-Sue romance and quacks like a Mary-Sue romance, I don't particularly care if it's labeled 'Harry Potter and the Sexy New American Transfer Student' or 'Harry Potther and the Half-Blood Prince'. :P)

Thanks for the link!

#18 made me want to say something about how the Presidential election cycle now begins roughly two weeks before the inauguration of the current President, much along the same lines as Christmas shopping season beginning directly after Labor Day and occasionally as early as July.

America is just obsessed with taxes. I may still love you, place I was born, but that doesn't mean I don't also hate your stupid guts sometimes too. Not that that doesn't fuck with my sense of identity endlessly mind you but since when have I ever had a strong, stable foundation of identity? I guess in the end, USAland is so tied for me with my family and past it just makes it hard to find solace in the soil of anywhere. Roots can anchor but they can choke, too.

When is Bush going to choke to death on his own ignorance and smallness? It's a nasty little thing to say but ugh, I'm so sick of him. I wonder if he ever did a kind thing in his life.

Yeah I don't remember if it was Congress but that was what I thought it was... there was a big hullabaloo because one of the senators or whoever got banned from speaking further because she used the word vagina in regards to some proposed law about rape or abortion or rapebortion or something. I blocked most of it out tbh mostly I just remember wanting to ragepuke.

And I find that a lot of people will use admiration for King as a shield to prove they're soooo not racist after whatever casually racist thing they just said. :P

Writing up my responses was just a little TOO fun today... I seem to be feeling a bit bitter. XD

I think I'm just a bit bitter in general right now, I'm feeling pretty brittle because I'm having kind of a brainsplosion-and-therapy-epiphanies time at the moment. Things in my head are just... shifting around in prep of the next big changes in my life. Mostly I just sort of still feel... unwanted, for lack of a better word (which feels insecure and unsafe). Trying simply to find a place to be and a way to feel about it isn't as straightforward as I used to think!

And thanks, that still makes me feel really good. *hugs* :)

guardians_song: A sprite edit of Nils from Fire Emblem, looking shocked: CHRISTMAS EDITION (Nils)
"That's why SJW's are always hating on their heritage, why they try to cling to any bit of oppression they can find, and why they like pretending to be "white, but independent from the privilege mother country" (Where "white heritage" is England and the SJW is America)"
...That's fucking brilliant. I'm not even being sarcastic. That's outright brilliant.
(But HAHAHAHAHA DO THEY SERIOUSLY THINK ENGLAND IS NOT PROBLEMATIC? The former BRITISH EMPIRE? The people so white they hate on other white people who happen to have red hair? Sweet GAD!

[Seriously, I like England. But I don't get the Tumblr fetish for it.])

"(Also: despite what I said up there, I'm actually not scornful of transethnic people. Can you believe it? Not sure if I'm self trolling with that or what.)"
I'd... be LESS scornful if it didn't reek of covert racism. 'lolol i'm so black BECAUSE ALL BLACKS ARE GANGSTA AMIRITE'/'ALL JAPANESE PEOPLE ARE KAWAII LIKE ME~'/etc.
