THIS JUST BLOWS MY MIND.
Okay, this is silly that this blows people’s minds. It’s fiction, which is purposefully constructed. All this says is that JK Rowling has rudimentary understanding of language roots, not that her magic world spontaneously evolved the language of spells. There is no coincidence.
She. Did. It. On. Purpose.
It’s cool, but it isn’t mind-blowing.
Whistleblower Bradley Manning was beaten down, day and night. Week after week. Month after month. Year after year. He was locked in solitary, denied access to a support group, separated from his supporters (the many thousands of us), and worked over by psychologists whose mission was to break him. And it appears to me, based on what I can make of the scanty reports of his incarceration and trial, that in the end he did break, as his tormentors are now triumphantly proclaiming to the world. He apologized for his supposed “crimes,” despite having done nothing wrong. He apologized, despite having done what was right. Probably most of us have seen persons fall apart in situations far less trying. The amazing thing is not that Bradley Manning finally broke, but that he held up as long as he did — apparently for something like three years.
What the “Apology” Tells Us (via canisfamiliaris)
Okay, fine. Or maybe he just realized there were other achieve the same result. Whistleblowers have been an important part of our society…that is certain. But I can’t help but think some of these people aren’t really concerned about society so much as they stumbled across something controversial and then thought:
"This is big. I could be big."
This is just disgusting. It’s almost as if they are intentionally trying to kill us off.
Lol the irony of “questionall” blindly posting something that probably wasn’t questioned at all. More naturalists not understanding how science works.
