We must never upgrade to Windows 8. We cannot let the evil Windows 8 dominate society. If that means downgrading, so be it. 

Who the hell do you think you are, prioritizing your usage of a touchscreen over the survival of society as we know it? That touchscreen you have there, those simplified, streamlined applications on your screen will one day take over you, control you, they will become you. 

You might not know where things are now, but soon there will be nothing left to find. The world will be gone. You, everyone you know, everyone you have ever met, and everyone you will ever meet. 

Destroyed by Windows 8. 

We must not let Windows 8 win. We must stand up, we must rise together! 

Windows 7 will save us! Join me, and together we will win!

Filed under People always complain that hard boiled eggs smell but screw you hard boiled eggs are delicious Alright they might have a particularly detectable scent but it is only a scent not an obnoxious odor Eggs are delicious. Smash them up and add some tuna and mayo and you are good to go. Tuna is optional but I like adding tuna and other easily smashed animal corpses. Turkey and chicken work fine too but turkey is pretty gross No offense if you LIKE turkey or like MAKING turkey I just think there are better tasting meats on the market. Sure you could argue that turkey tastes better with gravy and butter but anything tastes good when it is drowned in fat and salt. Turkey is a sometimes food. Sometimes it comes out good but you have to be extra careful. You have to make a rack so the fat drains. You also have to make it with a lot of broth. Broth makes everything better. Use chicken broth and make it taste like chicken because honestly I would rather eat a perfect chicken than a perfect turkey. Just be careful. Be very very careful with turkeys. Pretend like you love the turkey as you cook it. You interested in hearing what tastes better than a perfect chicken? A perfect steak. It might not be AS healthy in some respects but when you cut that first piece and see that juicy saturated pink center.... Oh...oh yeah.... wtfih10 homestuck liveblog homestuck liveblog I am reading Homestuck

Quite easily, you see. 
The purple castle is used as an analogy for society, while the fact that it is within a dream bubble represents humans when they truly feel free, which commonly occurs when they are either asleep or when they are on the internet.
We, as a society, are given a certain type of absolute freedom through the internet, especially through types of media in which we can choose our own names. One is only “born” to the masses when their username is created and their identity is established as whatever it is the individual in particular chooses to claim about themselves. This persona evolves over time, meeting other individuals with their own personas, which may or may not be at all similar to their identity offline. While the internet has a sense of “birth”, the dream bubbles entirely revolve around sleep and death. 

With this freedom, however, often comes chaos. The freedom to send your thoughts flying through cyberspace turns into the freedom to affect others, be it positively or negatively. 
The longer one uses the internet or stays in the once-welcoming “castle”, the more evident the dissonance becomes. With a pessimistic view, it could be easily thought that internet communities, and perhaps the community of internet users as a whole, is slowly spiraling towards destruction.
Offline, power is money and money is power. Online, people are power. Followers, fans, friends-anyone that can spread your message. Some people have no idea what to do with massive amounts of followers, just as some people have little clue how to effectively utilize massive amounts of money. You might not fully understand yet why this power is important, but you are trained to think you need it.  
Finally, tumblr is a place filled with revolutionary ideas and people with revolutionary world views and plans to change society as a whole. To them, society is probably crumbling. Things are terrible. Incompetent or unrealistic as they may be, their plans require power to “save” the world. That power is people, and they need anyone they can get.
