My clock radio was set to Christian music and one of the first things I heard was "As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death" in a very standard Christian rock voice, which made me think "this is the weirdest cover of Gangsta's Paradise on earth" before it kept going and I realized they were quoting scripture
@xyzzy it just adds the follows that aren't already there. It doesn't take away the follows you've already done.
Reminder: the only reason your English teacher said "don't split an infinitive" is a rule is because William Strunk and Elwyn White said it was, and the only reason THEY said it was is because they wanted to make English more like Latin and you *can't* split a (present active) Latin infinitive.
Let English be English. If you want to boldly go, do so.
The Salvage Art Institute sounds really fascinating. Not only do they take “irredeemably” damaged art, they pledge NOT to let that art regain “value.” https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-artwork-damaged-repair
trying to force value onto art is almost always something which benefits galleries, not artists, so I’m very pro that stance.
if anyone is like "the fuck is that:"
free speech stuff, death mention
you know that when you say you'd defend someone's right to say something bigoted to the death, they'd be more than happy to let you die for it, right? two birds, one stone - not only did you defend them, they got you to die, too! and they didn't even have to lift a finger in the process
they aren't willing to defend our right to speak, they're actively attacking it. extending them the same courtesy won't make us better than them, it'll make us dead.
