“Yes it’s important to teach your children to read, but it’s more important to teach them to ‘question’ everything they read, teach them there’s a whole load of bullshit coming down the road towards them, and they must be well prepared for it”—George Carlin (via dougsanotheranglertumblr)
“We all have the potential to fall in love a thousand times in our lifetime. It’s easy. The first girl I ever loved was someone I knew in sixth grade. Her name was Missy; we talked about horses. The last girl I love will be someone I haven’t even met yet, probably. They all count….

“They give you opinion polls on subjects you couldn’t possibly have any basis to make an opinion. “What’s the likelihood of another terrorist attack now that Obama’s in office?” They’ll put up big pie charts that say “Ooh, 67% say it’s ‘very likely’, and 30% say it’s ‘highly unlikely’. 3% don’t know.” The big pie chart with “3% don’t know.” No, you all don’t fucking know. That should be a giant pizza pie of “I have no earthly idea.” What that shows you, is 97% of Americans will give a strong opinion even though they have no fucking clue whatsoever about the subject.”—
