you know it's gonna be a good episode when Bob Ross has his shirt opened and a big disco-ass gold medallion is peeking out

I never ceased to be dazzled by the stunning range of ways there are to be beautiful. It’s tragic that only a tiny sliver of that falls under the category of “conventionally beautiful.” Such a waste that so many people allow themselves to be brainwashed into thinking that sorry sliver is the only acceptable range of human beauty.

I don't think mindfulness itself is the problem, more the way schools and employers try to fob off concerns about stress + overwork by going "oh well that's your fault for not being more mindful."

Abe refused to apologize for Japan's WWII war crimes, which were *extensive*! Just in case anyone is feeling bad.
