Who I Stalk

Noticing the parallels between corporate America and the English monarchy of the 1700s.

Exorbitant taxes on ordinary objects ~ fees (media, banks)
Both have more political power than citizens of the US
Storing their wealth overseas
Restricting of personal rights (college athletes are indentured servants!)

Man, we need a new revolutionary war.

i laughed way too hard at this

I just thought it was funny to see “grocery stores fear him”, like an old man would singlehandedly bring them down.

Báut Báutas

Sél állan kvâlán sjǿssiéhtes, áirantøt? Vrái ksýnnaŋetonei? Sjǿvvôgde hkýnnaŋelanei?

Sjǿvvôg lémlisás éammø li sjǿklás skiénsás láixahha. Al pûsánnán lálánksi pái. Lónnaityn vi báut. Târ állake sáj la báut. Sánnaha si, sél állah. Ós álla a Báut es Báutas, milláihki xâsant. Sjǿbbánt îttas ƕónno líndelle l-áttie yttelántau, máltol táiral u vétto sálly – ra féi sjǿwinálás, mekánank. As áo, as álj, as tínt l-os eái re sǿinnós jø féjlán. Alĕt hjánnas, suj te njáinna li tús njînnéakku l-éadu tussôlli snéllahhíksise, žóin rimâttake. So ðállake eáinátau áirantasna, kē se þíttake kágenátau rîfsø.

Mínóh sjósjýtás – ós ta áltië l-ós ti šânnana. Nêrōla vl-ujéttos u lérinta ƕállos lōj-vo čýhisa. Šawáriskáh lérintant. Sél u séi állan, víso, áirantøt? Sjêtán u sjêtanáun ránsirai, ûle sjósjýt olilóhalanáus u míllaus issoáttyi.

Nífóh il áikóh, tôrja li míks u vándar vi šaíttos sêkkøha.

Sélán? Tóhán. Li pól sjósjýtás il ó mjábbáutáh, a Báut es Báutas.

Looks great!!! :D

Now you have to speak it! (jk ;P)

I can just envision this old man walking slowly into a grocery store. All the clerks are overcome with gripping fear. Women and children are crying and the manager feels unable to protect himself from this man’s saving power. Somewhere in New York City, the CEO is talking with his board of directors about this unstoppable force.

OMG I thought I was the only one who did this…..

And I’ve accomplished a total of 3 things. But I made a new (small) linguistic discovery! So I guess that’s something.

I’m free in my apartment and no one can judge me.

Angkor is one of the most important and the greatest archaeological sites in the world. This by the way the world’s largest (400 square kilometers) temple complex (almost a 1000 temples) was between IX and XV century the capital of the Khmer Empire. Probably, in the eleventh century, numbering one million inhabitants of Angkor was the largest city in the contemporary world.

it looks like a fantasy in ruins
