Hi. I'm Aaron. I'm a professional stuff maker at Domino's Pizza. I love music. I post porn occasionally. Okay bye.
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
Go away, Aaron. :-]
YOU ARE SUCH A PERF OKAY KIMERLY <3
Whenever I try to use Windows 7 on my PC, it lags so fucking hard.
I just wasted a good day downloading shit just for Win7.
you fuckin fat cunt
Can we just talk about how useful this is but also how happy that dog is to be teaching us something. Look at that tail wag. Thank you puppy.
This dog is a not just any dog - it’s a Belgian Malinois. They are often used as guard and attack dogs because they have EXTREMELY high drive, an exceptional work ethic, and are widely considered the best working dogs for military and police forces. The pup above is well-trained and yes - he absolutely LOVES his job.
I don’t think people give Flash enough credit.…………….my goodness
He didn’t just rebuild an apartment building.
HE FUCKING LEARNED HOW TO BUILD AN APARTMENT BUILDING. HE DID FUCKING RESEARCH. IT TAKES SEVERAL GODDAMN YEARS TO LEARN ALL THE ENGINEERING AND LEGAL CONSTRAINTS OF BUILDING A FUCKING BUILDING AND JUST DID IT.
This is one of my favorite flash comics. It really highlights how the flash doesn’t just run really fast, but can do absolutely astounding things. I remember reading this for the first time and having my head explode.
Justin Lynch beating Michael Phelps record at just 16
SPREAD THIS LIKE FIRE
Good. Michael Phelps was great for five minutes but we need to give credit to men in the sport who aren’t idiots.
I used to swim against this kid. I was always so mad that I would lose to him by like 10th of seconds. Now I couldn’t be more proud to have raced against such an amazing athlete.
Constantly in between a state of I’m alright and I want to die.
THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT GUYS LISTEN UP
If you like dogs, have a dog, or happen to be a decent human being then please, please, PLEASE listen
Harlan are the UK’s last remaining breeders of beagles for use in experiments.
This company breeds beagles for the purpose of selling them to laboratories and universities and keep ‘donor beagles’
These dogs have their blood regularly drained and sold to laboratories and are subject to numerous experiments.
Some of these experiments include ‘toxicology experiments’ which entail the dogs wearing muzzles and being forced to inhale toxic substances such as cigarettes, bleach and oven cleaner.
If they aren’t killed during experiments, they’re eventually deemed useless and euthanised.
A former employee reported to the Sunday Times that these poor beagles:
• are being punched and kicked by employees
• have profanities shaved into their fur and their faces daubed with felt tips
• are kept in dirty, cramped pens
These beagles are born to endure such a high level of pain and suffering that they self harm, kill themselves or each other.
These beagles are being used in experiments because they are vulnerable and controllable and can’t make it stop.
If you’re a decent human being, please don’t just ignore this and bury your head in the sand because THIS IS HAPPENING TO PUPPIES RIGHT NOW and it takes less than 2 minutes of your time to bring them closer to seeing sunshine, breathing fresh air, going on walks and being loved and cuddled by someone who wants to take care of them
Please stop these poor dogs from suffering. They don’t have a voice to stop their pain and get help, but you do.
Please, be their voice, and sign here: PETITION
