    my existential nihilism has been wrestling itself for about a decade now and maybe the only useful thing i've discovered is that the cliche "don't care what other people think about stuff" is probably one of the best credos to live by.

    Oh, me too. Worrying about how others perceive you just seems like a particularly English trait.

    There is very little out there of less worth than a user comment on the internet.

    After hearing excerpts of her Anderson Cooper interviews and knowing she has a book deal I've concluded that juror B37 is a woman I can't stand.

    My friends are a simple, beefy, brick-laying bunch, but they're all almost as mad as I am. It's really refreshing, all things considered.

    i haven't discussed this with a single person, but I don't really talk to people about the world. anyway, this read was interesting enough to pre-order this guy's book (chicago violence related probably moreso than trayvon):

    Understandably so, on a dark Halloween night the next George Zimmerman might not realize that it's face paint!

    Exactly what they've been saying. Seriously, though, those are three of the dudes about whom I'm talking. Especially the fat guy.

    Yeah, I can't recall speaking a single word about Trayvon Martin in real life.

    And I pray it's a stale subject before the reunion of all my mom's boomer cousins in Missouri this September.

    Fortunately I was occupied with the grill on the fourth. Otherwise have had no interaction with savages on this particular topic.

    The other day my dad was saying something to me about Rachel Jeantel and I was like, c'mon dad you can barely read either. That's about all the irl Trayvon talk I've had.

    That hardly seems like news, which I guess is unsurprising considering the website.

    if we're being honest with ourselves, the whole Trayvon Martin case wasn't even news

    local crime stories aren't national news (or shouldn't be)

    Three weeks later, one person I know on Facebook, keeps posting links to news stories that can all be summed up with... White person killed by black person(s), WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?!?!?
