Nah son, amphetamines don’t makes sense. Sherlock is incredibly smart, always seeing and always watching. He’d use a drug to slow himself down and zone out, not amp himself up
COUNTERARGUMENT: Some amp-y up-y drugs act specifically on the parts of the brain that regulate executive functioning (a la Adderall and other ADD/ADHD medication). So while they’re stimulants, they allow people who have very active thought processes to, in essence, task-manage more efficiently - things don’t slow down, but the part of the brain that regulates attention is amped up so that speed is put to use. I think (NOT AN EXPERT) some amphetamines can have this effect on certain people under certain conditions. And in practice, to an outside observer, it looks like calming down. So that’s a thing?
So much studying.
So much studying!
I just wanna write, you guys, that’s. That’s really it.
Open declaration. Fuck this other bullshit with a railway spike. I’ve been a really good achiever, I gave it my all. And now I am going to amputate the rest of my CV and become gypsy scum. You heard it here first.
I practiced saying it a couple times last month too, when innocent bystanders asked me about my life goals. I’m going to be a playwright, I told them. I am going to get punched by children for 40 hours a week, and on my off days, I am going to write.
Oh, they said. That’s nice.
The inverse happens when I go publicly crazy. Y’all can’t get enough of that shit.
lol guess we know what you guys are here for.
why do nice girls always go for the assholes i dont even like pegging
No. Just. NO. I am so sick of this bullshit stereotype being both perpetuated AND played out. No.
Saying nice girls go with the assholes is the biggest stereotype in relationships of all time
I need to catch my breathe after this
To Be Loved by Michael Buble
To be loved by Michael Buble is to wear a mock turtleneck at Macaroni Grill on your anniversary. To be loved by Michael Buble is to be treated well, but not exceptionally so. He will buy flowers on the expected occasions, but they were just up at the counter at Whole Foods.
To be loved by Michael Buble is to expect missionary, and only missionary, and to get that lovin’ on perfectly reasonable intervals. The mouth is for kissing only, like The Lord designed it.
To be loved by Michael Buble is to open a closet door and be showered in fedoras.
True he’s not reinventing any wheels, he doesn’t send you over the moon, but he feels safe; familiar. This is no great storybook romance, but damn it’s just nice to have someone to watch NCIS with.
How do I keep myself from feeling jaded and bitter that I’ve never found anything more than the kind of sex for sale on TV?
The whole reason they’re selling that kind of sex on TV is so they can make you feel jaded and bitter about your sexuality. That’s how they get you to buy all the other…
I’m seeing a lot of shit on my dash from people who aren’t from here.
All I have to say is you’re right. You’re absolutely right. Every point you are making is correct. Attacks like this put PoC at risk, PoC need to be careful of profiling in the wake of events of this nature (especially in a city like Boston which is, let’s be real, wicked racist), etc. etc. etc. And you have a right to express your opinion.
I am asking, begging that you chill, for like, a day or two. Or, if you express your opinion, do it respectfully.
“Why?” you might ask. “I’ve been quiet for too long. I’m tired of being told to be quiet. You can’t tell me to be quiet, I’m angry and I want to scream out what I want to.”
To that I say, my city’s in pain. My city. It is not, from what I’ve seen, your city. Maybe you went to school here - that’s great, but with all due respect, it doesn’t count. You are speculating through the internet about what we do and who we are, and you don’t know anything at all about what it looks like on the ground.
So, as with any speculative writing, take the appropriate distancing measures. Suck out some of the vitriol, please. Just for a minute. You don’t have to do it forever. But let us get back on our feet before you stomp in and tell us we’re fucked up. That’s not like, news.
Don’t worry, it won’t take us long.
