Honestly, I think unhelpful self-help stuff is worse than nothing at all

Because if one doesn’t benefit from it, it just reinforces one’s belief that one is inherently defective and incapable of improvement - I mean, since one can’t even benefit from self-help, after all - and drives one further into focused, deliberate meditation on giving up on all this shit…

…Doesn’t help that, if you don’t ~perk up~ after a pep talk, the devotees of ~optimism~ and ~positive self-image~ will simper at you about your ~defeatism~ and ~negativity~…

…That was a long time ago. The depression’s (mostly) gone, and may it stay that way for good.
The anger remains.

Remind me, did I hallucinate one of the CLAMP ladies admitting that even she’d have to go back and reread the endgame of TRC to remember what they were doing?

Because I think that summed up everyone’s reaction at the time.

It didn’t help that they were weirdly ambiguous about the penultimate chapter, so fandom blew up because they thought it was just a particularly weird-ass open ending.

Not that both Syaoran and Sakura being named Tsubasa was any LESS weird-ass…

In the Clamp Multiverse characters don’t say “I love you” they say “There is no such thing as coincidence in this world. The only thing is hitsuzen” which translated means “Let’s travel through time and space into different worlds until create a loop time paradox where we are our own parents” and I think that’s beautiful.

I don’t get it when people ask me why I didn’t tell them I was gay. Like what were you expecting, am I supposed to announce myself every time I walk into a room?

The homo has arrived.

people are hypocritical as hell about this, from observation.

gay person: uh, you should know, I’m gay -
straight person: OMG WHY DID YOU NEVER TELL ME THAT?!

or

gay person: hi, I’m going to mention, without any prompting, that I’m gay -
straight person: OMG WHY ARE YOU SHOVING YOUR SEXUALITY DOWN MY THROAT WHY IS THIS EVEN RELEVANT WHY?!

Proof of the Pythagoras Theorem.

Am I the only one who never got why this damn picture was supposed to help you with anything?
Like - CONGRATULATIONS. YOU HAVE A TRIANGLE AND THREE SQUARES.
Honestly you could put Sam, Dean, and John Winchester’s heads on each side, and it would STILL be about as helpful as the squares
There are better diagrams for the Pythagorean Theorem, why did THIS one catch on

because it clearly shows that a squared + b squared = c squared????

if you’re talking about the GIF - yeah, I like the GIF, don’t get me wrong.
As far as the diagram without the cool water-draining-from-compartment-to-compartment thing goes, though, it’s like “here is a square, and then another square, and a THIRD square, and… we haven’t really showed the area of the third square is equal to the sum of the areas of the other two, meh”.
Maybe it’s just me… :\

'Cos they're amoral and they don't really care about whether people are interested, just whether they can grab for attention for a fleeting second.

Think of it as the equivalent of making shit up for notes.

(Disclaimer: I’m basing this on observation of online tales of sociopaths, so it may be inaccurate for non-sociopathic pathological liars. the “making shit up for notes” analogy is probably still accurate)

"City Council Monday unanimously passed a Will of Council resolution urging Congress to repeal such a ban on blood, organ, & tissue donations from gay men. Councilman Dan Gilman, who sponsored the resolution, said the policy — which is meant to prevent HIV from entering the donated blood supply — is discriminatory and based on fear, not science.”
Way to go Pittsburgh!

Hey, congratulations, Pittsburgh! :D
