BP’s Stated Goals
LOL, you know, except for oil spills, human rights violations, and— ignoring the fact that burning oil creates pollution— various toxic leaks.
Still, I’m going to try to work for these people.
Isn’t it interesting that someone has been murdered, and then all of this ‘information’ comes out about how they purportedly sold/smoked/harbored weed and took ‘offensive’ pictures of themselves. Because you know, that somehow means you deserved to be killed!
Best yet is how someone going from ‘white’ to ‘hispanic’ suddenly shakes up the whole dialogue. The murderer was completely impartial because being a ‘minority’ makes you unable to be prejudiced. Everyone knows that’s true too!
The whole abortion issue just does my head in. Though I disagree, I understand pro-life advocates, I really do, but I feel deeply that if abortions were banned, most would pat themselves on the back and move on to the next controversial conservative issue.
I would really like to talk to someone active in the movement who recognizes abortion is merely an effect and is just as passionate about addressing its causes as they are about striking down Roe vs. Wade.
If you exist, please inbox me. I would absolutely love to have an intelligent conversation with you.

75% of the food I eat is grown on the island I live on. I’ve stopped buying veggies packaged in plastic (cheaper that way too) and started educating myself about what produce is and isn’t in season. Strawberries are on the store shelves, but they don’t grow in the UK in the middle of January?! Shocking, I know…
just got home and it is SO FREAKIN’ BEAUTIFUL OUTSIDE I’m gonna change into flip flops and go right back out again.
Only 800 words to go and completely unable to function.
Do yourself a favor. Before it’s too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late.

Seeing is not experiencing. You can “see” the world via TV.
Experience the world. Recognize, ‘the world’ is across the street, not just across the sea.
Be aware of your place in the world, the impact of your presence.
Do not consume other cultures for sport, or approach them with an air of superiority.
