For the last time :)
It is not a neutral “conflict”. Palestinians don’t have:
- an army
- police officers littered around the streets fighting off attacking settlers
- $3.8B funding from the US
- bomb shelters
- homes (hello they’re being evicted and bombed?)
- immediate access to medical care (settlers are blocking ambulances and throwing grenades)
- citizen acknowledgement from the government that supposedly wants to help them
- means of defending themselves
- the right to properly mourn (a funeral was recently attacked by settlers)
Anyone who chooses to claim neutrality is choosing to claim the side of genocide. Neutral = complicit. The number of Palestinian deaths remains staggering and I promise, the occupying state’s numbers are nothing compared to it. Thousands more deaths and fatalities have occurred to the Palestinian people. When the death toll defers by roughly 9,000, I think it’s safe to say that the situation isn’t neutral.*
I repeat, if you are neutral, you side with genocide.
As a bonus:
Don’t worry, guys. Carl is clearly a brachiosaurus, which lived during the Jurassic period. (And before anyone says our lil’ boy Steve is a velociraptor and therefore puts our comic in the late cretaceous, aka the time of the comet–that lil guy could easily be a compsognathus or a caudipteryx, both Jurassic-era species of small theropod dinosaurs. So the light getting bigger every night is going to pass by harmlessly, and Steve and Carl can go on enjoying the stars together until they die of old age, since Carl has very few natural predators at his size and I bet he’ll protect Steve, if he needs it (though small, fast and carnivorous as Steve is, he probably won’t).
So it’s all good!!
That entire response explaining how these two characters didn’t die a fiery death but instead lived long and happy lives literally made my day.
I was ready to be heartbroken again. Thank you for making it happy after all.
Best ending ever
“Describe the US healthcare system in 1 post”
My cousin’s husband had stage 4 cancer with a job with good healthcare and they had to sell their house and move in with their parents again despite both my cousin and her husband both being full time employees with benefits. He’s in remission now remarkably, but they literally lost their house and their kids lost stability just because the US healthcare system is evil and will suck the life out of you when you’re at your weakest.
I think a lot about who I am to other people in the world–particular who I am to strangers as a mere concept in their lives.
Today this woman called our information desk and said, “my son’s band is playing tonight. I want to come see him, but he never answers his phone…..I want to be there. Have you heard anything about his band?”
And I felt so bad for this lady but I’m not in the music scene around here so I had to tell her no, sorry.
Five hours later, I’m hiking and run into a group of guys setting up for some outdoor performance, and as I watch them unload the drums it hits me.
“Hey,” I said, “are y’all in a band?”
They said yeah and smiled and I told them “one of your moms called today. She wants to watch you play, but she can’t get a hold of you. Call your mom.”
And they all pulled out their phones and started discussing whose mom it probably was as they presumably dialed their own.
And now, unless we meet again and recognize each other, that’s who I’ll be forever to those guys–some mysterious courier for mom-messages who came out of the woods and told them their mom called.
I didn’t even tell them why their mom called me. Who am I to their mom?? Nobody even asked. They just took my word for it and called their mothers.
I’M LAUGHING!!! THEY DIDN’T EVEN ASK WHO I AM.
Dear diary… (Trigger warning)
I like sleep. Because when I’m asleep, I don’t feel anythimg. There’s no depression. There’s no anxiety. I don’t really have to deal with life when I sleep.
I wish I could sleep forever, though. Because I hate waking up.
Waking up to know I’ll have to live through another day…
Are fedoras really that bad?

World Heritage Post
I’ve always wanted to show this to @theforwardslash
IT WAS A CULTURAL RESET. A CULTURAL RESET.
people are bad and all but when a stranger holds open a door for you and when a stranger picks up something you dropped and when a stranger smiles at you from across the street and when a stranger on a hike wishes you good morning and when a stranger hands you a rose and when a stranger lets you have their seat and when a stranger stops you to compliment your outfit and when a stranger gives you the 5 cents you’re missing and when a stranger jams their foot in the tram door so you can make it and when a stranger says bless you when you sneeze and when a stranger helps you with directions and when a stranger gets you something from the top shelf and when a stranger offers you a piece of watermelon in the park and when a stranger wishes you happy birthday because you’re holding a balloon.. maybe we are worth saving
