Autotelic - "...someone or something that has a purpose in, and not apart from, itself. ... Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi describes people who are internally driven, and who as such may exhibit a sense of purpose and curiosity, as autotelic. This is different from being externally driven, in which case things such as comfort, money, power, or fame are the motivating force."

Are you a cardiac arrythmia?

Which is worse

What I said was that I *like* kicking toddlers...not that I *do* kick them with any regularity.

You must openly mock those who still believe that homosexuality is a choice. It is a patently stupid position that deserves to be ridiculed.

Stranger Things spoiler 

The only reason I watched 4 seasons was to see Eleven die. Now I gotta watch another?!

I hate that character.

John 13:34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."

Are there any actual Christians left? I know there are those who hold the banner of Christianity as they spread hatred and fear, but are there any of them that actual follow Jesus' command?

I believe there are. And I believe they need to be LOUDER.

well the supreme court just decided that government agencies can't actually do anything so that's awesome. lmao

Western culture took the notion of "individuality" and mutated it into deeply-entrenched selfishness. The United States in particular has taken this to its extreme, creating a system that teaches, encourages, and rewards selfishness above every other ideal. The U.S. loudly touts pseudo-Christian ideals, using this distractive propaganda to deflect from its worship of selfishness.

It's like I always say....you can only do what you can do. And sometimes, what's done is already done. So when what you can do is done, and that's all that you can do, you can't redo what's already done, so you just have to do the best you can.

planned to make some cookies but i'm out of flour and eggs and sugar and i don't have a bowl or an oven or a house

SCOTUS last week: We hate women.
