i’m genuinely concerned that no one will fall in love with me

Yep, I’m pretty much certain that I’ll be alone forever.

Speaking frightens me because, by never saying enough, I also say too much.

The only world that I have, that I can ever have, is the world of the history that I have.

Ich habe keine Preise oder Auszeichnungen im letzten Jahr gewonnen und deswegen habe ich angefängt an meiner Fähigkeit (Potential) zu verweifeln. Ich sorge mich darum, dass ich nicht gut genug bin … dass ich verfehlen werde bei allem was ich versuche …

The book says “Theory” on it. :)

It’s a college town and you think it’s life.

Philosophy in its historical function is this extraction, I would say almost its betrayal, of the slave’s knowledge, in order to obtain its transmutation into the master’s knowledge

Qu’importe. Seul demeure le sentiment de légèreté qui est la mort même ou, pour le dire plus précisément, l’instant de ma mort désormais toujours en instance.

If it is true that Georges Bataille had the feeling (especially before the war) of being abandoned by his friends, if, later, during a few months (Le Petit), illness forced him to remain aloof, if, in a way, he lives solitude all the more deeply in that he is unable to bear it, he knows all the better that the community is not destined to heal or protect him from it, but that it is the way in which it exposes him to it, not by chance, but as the heart of fraternity: the heart or the law.

David Foster Wallace’s annotated copy of Ulysses(via @Lit_Books)

Amazing. Wish I could annotate like this.

Every being’s substance is contested without respite by every other being. Even the look that expresses love and admiration attaches itself to me like a doubt touching upon reality.

Sign the petition and help prevent this!

It seems that Walmart has announced a new method of payment for their employees. A Facebook post was published on their page and was deleted after a few minutes due to the negative response (post can be seen in the picture). Walmart is planning on giving their workers these cards as a way of payment which would replace money and that would save the company large amounts of money. All the employees at Walmart are hardworking individuals who should not only be paid in cash, but deserve to be given a higher wage. Whether Walmart decides to implement this action is currently unknown, but we would like to prevent this if it were to happen. Please sign the petition and hope for the best; Walmart employees aren’t just workers, they’re also family and friends. We want this issue to be known, and this is our main goal.

oh yes i’m sure the doctor will take a walmart card for payment

JUST FUCKING PAY YOUR WORKERS FAIRLY WALMART HOLY SHIT

"This new idea will be revolutionary …" Um hate to break it to you Walmart but this idea isn’t revolutionary. It’s been around a long time. Ever heard of company stores? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Company_store) This is the same dynamic. Pay your workers in credit, which they can only spend internally. Not very novel if you ask me.
