This reminds me of the John Green quote from Paper Towns:
“Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement, There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for plannning. No time for a future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future--you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college."
I personally would rather be a river than a strait. But that's just me.
After reading this I undid my YYA. Makes sense.
Not me... I always saw him as sort of solitary and celibate, which is really what he was after the whole Grindelwald heartbreak. Coming to terms with the fact that the love of your life is evil as you're watching him torture your brother, possibly kill your sister, and attempt to start a genocide can really make a man give up on the whole idea of "romantics".
It'd be awkward if you walked in and there was someone else in there crying though. How would that work? Would you awkwardly back out and wait your turn? Would there be a line outside of the 'crying room' full of people frantically gulping and blinking, or would there be people on all sides of the room breaking down into tears? How about stalls? Would there be plenty of tissues and a mirror so we could touch up our makeup?
These are the questions...
You'd probably love them if they were of a different gender, but as a friend, I guess. You wouldn't be 'in love' the way you were before, because the sexual attraction would gone.
I don't understand how this post has such a positive score, when it's essentially saying someone who chooses not to have sex is stronger in that regard than someone who chooses to have sex. When is it ever okay to judge people by their personal, sexual lives? Virginity isn't an accomplishment. It's an abstract concept that some people choose to put value in.
What's wrong with you?
Nickelback is terrible.
How do you know? Tom Riddle was pretty handsome in his day... I bet he knew how to get down.
I have to imagine it would be a lot harder to explain that we're using the overwhelming majority of crops grown in the country to feed livestock. Factory farming is the biggest waste of food in the world. The amount of crops necessary to produce a single eight ounce steak could feed about forty-five people.
World hunger could be eradicated if factory farming were to end. By consuming meat, you're funding the primary reason that those African children are starving.
JKR said that she did consider putting Neville and Luna together, but she thought they'd be a little lost as a couple. Each of them needed a spouse that would help keep them grounded.
Not doing something that makes you happy in the face of opportunity for the sole reason that you want to be able to say that you resisted it is stupid, not strong. There are plenty of legitimate reasons not to have sex, but it doesn't make you any stronger than those who do.
Are you Amelia Bedelia?
This logic is ridiculous. It's like saying "If you support the consumption of strawberries and blueberries, you should also support the consumption of nightshade berries, because they're all berries."
Exactly! I don't know why this concept is so hard for people to grasp.
