Depends on if it were congruent with the human perspective, no?
This argument is contingent on a narrow spectrum of life.
The sun stutters as it rises between buildings.
Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony - it stutters.
The peace in Vietnam - it stutters across fire-swept land.
The clouds are stuttering tramps.
The Korean Strait is a stuttering frontier.
Have you noticed?
Order and obedience are smooth.
But the sun stutters.
The heart stutters.
Resistance movements stutter.
Stutter and shout.
Me - I’m a shamefaced stutterer.
But it’s because I stutter that I can chew over words properly.
In my own mouth. My own words.
This month, following the police shooting of Michael Brown and then the police-led violence against demonstrations calling for justice, one would think that any skepticism regarding the existence of racial discrimination in the U.S. would be eradicated.
And although it’s finally the topic of mainstream discussion, according to a Pew/MSNBC poll, it turns out more white people believe in ghosts than in “discrimination against blacks.”
Not only do 17% of the people polled believe in ghosts, but they also think they’ve “interacted” with them. So, racial discrimination based on hundreds of years of well-documented systematic oppression? Nah. High-fiving supernatural beings, of which there exists absolutely no evidence? Yep!
God forbid white people have different opinions than msnbc

A Massachusetts state university will soon become one of hundreds of colleges to use a “campus safety” smart-phone application to track kids on their walks home.
The Rave Guardian Campus Safety App is designed to protect students from dangers such as “walks from the library to the dorm at night,” according to an article published in South Coast Today about the app’s use at the University of Massachusetts Darthouth.
Before walking somewhere, students log in to the app and tell it where they’re going, then notify the app when they arrive at that destination
If students do not notify the app that they have reached their destination before a timer is up, their “profile” — which includes “current location, medical conditions, course schedule, addresses, campus ID photo and other critical data” — is automatically sent to law enforcement.
“If you’re not where you want to be at the expected time, campus police will show up,” Colonel Emil Fioravanti, UMass Dartmouth’s campus director of public safety, told South Coast.
All of the students’ information is stored in Rave’s databases.
The app will be available at Dartmouth in September. Schools that use it currently include University of Pennsylvania and University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. (No one has speculated on whether or not the creation of the app contributes to abduction culture.)
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declined to press charges against a sheriff’s deputy who was apparently distracted by his mobile digital computer when he fatally struck cyclist Milton Olin Jr. in Calabasas in December, officials announced Wednesday.
Olin, a prominent entertainment attorney, was riding his bicycle in the 22400 block of Mulholland Highway when he was struck by L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Wood’s patrol car in the bicycle lane on the afternoon of Dec. 8. The former A&M Records and Napster executive reportedly landed on the windshield and shattered the glass before rolling off the patrol car. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Spanish is a beautiful language. You don’t say “I love you” in Spanish, you say “yo quiero comer culo” which translates to “you are the light of my life” which I think is one of the most beautiful things to say to someone
I’m fucking dying
Oh my god
