You don’t trust people when they do nice things for you because you think theyre just trying to placate you and make you go away.

Animals, Apparently, and Ass: captainsnoop i was playing pokemon blue on stream earlier at 350% speed and i got to thinking what if the reason nobody in the pokemon world has any good teams is because its considered a dick move to have a proper team comp like culturally everyone is like "haha pick the pokemon you want! if you're happy with three geodudes, thats you and your life!" and then you're supposed to just have a friendly battle with any other pokemon trainers and whatever pokemon they just happen to have like the average trainer is probably just walking around with a growlithe because that's their pet, or a hiker has three geodudes because the geodudes help him with hiking and if this pet owner and geodude hiker meet, you're supposed to have a friendly battle but nothing too serious now imagine the 10 year old kid that has six pokeballs on their belt comes up. you're like "haha, we'll have a friendly battle!" and you throw out your geodude and they throw out a fucking gyarados, and it one-shots your geodude and then you throw out your pidgey you have because the pidgey helps you navigate mountains because you're a hiker and then electricity crackles around the gyarados and a thunderbolt flies off of this giant dragon and evaporates your pidgey so you're down to your last pokemon. you tell them you're gonna send out your bulbasaur. the ten year old is like "oh okay in that case i'm gonna pull out my vulpix." like not only is this kid walking around with an amped-up super dragon, but theyve also got multiple pokemon specifically for making type advantage counter-picks? this kid's a fucking asshole! really, kid? what are you trying to prove here? this is a friendly match between strangers for fun! why are you composing real-ass competitive teams? what a fucker! jumpingjacktrash i mean if you look at how npc's talk about their pokemon, they're service animals mostly some of them are just pets. apparently they really enjoy sparring, so you let them battle other people's pokemon for socialization, it's like going to the dog park. hell yes i'd be mad if i took my chronic pain support chow-chow to the dog park and some asshole with four rottweilers and a husky was like SIC EM THUNDERNUTS even if my dog enjoyed the tussle at first. look, kid, the paras helps me weed the garden it's not a special forces attack paras. it's just a bug that eats dandelions. please calm down maxiesatanofficial This is precisely why Cooltrainers are exiled to the mountains Source: captainsnoop A very long post about Pokémon
Animals, Apparently, and Ass: captainsnoop
 i was playing pokemon blue on stream earlier
 at 350% speed and i got to thinking
 what if the reason nobody in the pokemon
 world has any good teams is because its
 considered a dick move to have a proper team
 comp
 like culturally everyone is like "haha pick the
 pokemon you want! if you're happy with three
 geodudes, thats you and your life!" and then
 you're supposed to just have a friendly battle
 with any other pokemon trainers and whatever
 pokemon they just happen to have
 like the average trainer is probably just
 walking around with a growlithe because
 that's their pet, or a hiker has three geodudes
 because the geodudes help him with hiking
 and if this pet owner and geodude hiker meet,
 you're supposed to have a friendly battle but
 nothing too serious
 now imagine the 10 year old kid that has
 six pokeballs on their belt comes up. you're
 like "haha, we'll have a friendly battle!" and
 you throw out your geodude
 and they throw out a fucking gyarados, and it
 one-shots your geodude
 and then you throw out your pidgey you
 have because the pidgey helps you navigate
 mountains because you're a hiker
 and then electricity crackles around the
 gyarados and a thunderbolt flies off of this
 giant dragon and evaporates your pidgey
 so you're down to your last pokemon. you tell
 them you're gonna send out your bulbasaur.
 the ten year old is like "oh okay in that case
 i'm gonna pull out my vulpix." like not only
 is this kid walking around with an amped-up
 super dragon, but theyve also got multiple
 pokemon specifically for making type
 advantage counter-picks?
 this kid's a fucking asshole! really, kid? what
 are you trying to prove here? this is a friendly
 match between strangers for fun! why are you
 composing real-ass competitive teams? what
 a fucker!
 jumpingjacktrash
 i mean if you look at how npc's talk about
 their pokemon, they're service animals mostly
 some of them are just pets. apparently they
 really enjoy sparring, so you let them battle
 other people's pokemon for socialization, it's
 like going to the dog park.
 hell yes i'd be mad if i took my chronic pain
 support chow-chow to the dog park and some
 asshole with four rottweilers and a husky was
 like SIC EM THUNDERNUTS even if my dog
 enjoyed the tussle at first.
 look, kid, the paras helps me weed the garden
 it's not a special forces attack paras. it's just a
 bug that eats dandelions. please calm down

Community, Facts, and Hillary Clinton: Mikel Jollett @Mikel_Jollett Number of people who go bankrupt every year bc of medical bills: Britain: 0 France:O Japan: 0 Germany: 0 Canada: 0 USA: 643,000 liberalsarecool:Talk about obstruction. What if Republicans really cared about health care. During my stint with my economics degree I did research on homelessness. A lot of temporary homelessness is caused by something economist call ‘income shocks”, in other words unforeseen costs that are incurred that break your bank so to speak.  57% of Americans cant even afford an unexpected price tag of $500 and often non-chronic homelessness is caused by simply not being able to afford a car accident or a medical expense or a relatively small expense that wasn’t planned for. The reason why I mention this and mention homelessness is because it is incredibly sad that in this country, you can literally die on the streets if you can’t afford a medical bill, yet our neighbors in Canada treat their citizens with cancer, auto immune disorders, MS, Aids/HIV etc. virtually for free. Another thing that infuriates me is that even Democrats and their leadership and even Hillary Clinton who ran last year as a “progressive” called Universal Healthcare and Bernie’s single payer plan “pie in the sky” despite the fact that these plans work, are less expensive, and give better health outcomes than our system- also despite the fact that the majority of Americans and the majority of Democrats want universal healthcare.  We need to fight for Universal Healthcare now and until we get it. People’s lives and purses depend on it. The tumblr community should do more to push this. THIS  is a major social justice issue and one that can be easily won since the facts, science, and economics or on our side.  We need this, and we need it now.
