Ideation is worse than it’s been in...a long time. I don’t even know when. It’s a struggle just to find a reason to keep going.

Ah, crippling depression and loneliness, we meet again

Two eerily similar comments about the Holocaust and memory. The he first from The Ruins Of Memory by way of The Body Keeps The Score, the second (and third image) from The Drowned And The Saved.

A historian, in 1967, trying to politely tell people that the Mesopotamians were raunchy as fuck

I know shit about astrology, however I assume someone here will, and I’d like you to know that the Mesopotamians thought scorpios were gay

“Furries were created because of the internet!”

Mesopotamians thousands of years ago:

Every now and then I’ll read some Hunter S Thompson and be struck with this sudden sense that nothing in America has changed in a very long time. This is 1967.
