Actually, disseminating false information on a platform like Tumblr isn't cool at all. Especially when you have as many followers as I'm sure you do. Just because you put "lies are fun" in your tags, doesn't mean that this is acceptable. It's fairly irresponsible of you. I'm kind of disappointed.
I have a pretty sensitive bullshit detector so that “marked for death” thing seemed like a pretty obvious lie to me. I do recognize, however, that I’m seen as a source of high-quality, peculiar information…and I did set that statement up to sound real.
I made up a real-sounding name, I said “like 12 hours” later, as if I was just remembering something I’d read somewhere else. I created something that sounded impossible to believe and used little tricks to make it sound more believable.
I don’t want you to be disappointed in me…but I do want you to be critical thinkers EVEN WHEN IT’S ME! Because even when I’m not lying, I could totally be getting something wrong. The truth is a collaborative process. The lies of Tumblr (which I hate) will not be stopped by people not making stuff up, they’ll be stopped by people doing five seconds of fact checking before they reblog.
I honestly had no idea what he was talking about and then I looked at his previous post and then I rolled my eyes very hard. Someone believed that? Seriously? TUMBLR IS NOT AN EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM.
hello small feathered things i am a baby elephant it is nice to meet you may we shake noses?
It’s been over a month since JewWario (Justin Carmical) died, and it just keeps hitting me repeatedly.
As someone who suffers from depression and was also a big fan of Justin, it hits remarkably close to home.
It hits even closer for personal reasons (which I don’t care to really talk right this now). And he was the third person I knew who took his own life at around the same time. Within a month, anyway.
I studied Psychology as half of my BSc. From behavioural stuff right into Forensic Psych, and even though I know that brain chemistry can really fuck you up, it has never stopped me from wanting, somehow, to be able to fix someone who is in deep despair. Because no one should ever have to feel that way.
And yet, even knowing on a biological level why someone would take their own life is just…cold comfort. I’ll always wonder of the thoughts and emotions running through their heads during the final moment. It will always be that that will hit me in the middle of something innocuous, like brushing my teeth.
I want to point out that even though his friends were closer to him, no one should discount the feelings of those who were his fans. We know it hit you much harder, but it certainly hit us too. We are all hurting.
The last month of last year and the first month of this year will be something etched in my memory forever. He was the third. Why did it have to happen in a wave of 3 in a month? I guess bad things really do come in threes.
In the past week there have been two suicides at my old high school. This makes 5 in the past 4 years since I graduated. One of our alumni had the wonderful idea to do a project where we all send in pictures with the words “WE ARE WOODSON” to the school and she would make both a poster and…
