Remember those black-and-white films with Frank Sinatra? Those guys looked like men and they were only 27! Listen to Otis Redding singing ‘Try A Little Tenderness’. That was a man who understood what a man has to know in the world. Show me a real man now! Where are they? Chrissie Hynde

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. Frederick Douglass (February 1818 – February 20, 1895) was an African-American social reformer, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping from slavery, he became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writing. He stood as a living counter-example to slaveholders’ arguments that slaves lacked the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens. Many Northerners also found it hard to believe that such a great orator had been a slave.

Welcome To My Thoughts, Hungry?
just another plaid-wearin' java-sippin' girl
Where strange fact and stranger fiction collide
Probably a human... most definitely tall-ish and ranty.
Rantings of an Irrational Mind
You say you want an evolution...
Fears, worries, and screaming pathos of a college drone
We can rebuild him. We have the technology... Drier. Hilariouser. More satirical than before.
Welcome to my world.
