“It’s interesting that the weird censorship culture in the USA (violence = good, nudity = bad) was driven in that direction by the Catholic League and other religious pressure groups. The ACLU doesn’t as much clout. Kiss a lady’s breast, and it’s R or NC-17. Blow her brains out with a gun, and it’s PG-13.”—Rtambree, RD.net member (via shitigotbanned)

“You’re going to die soon enough anyway; even if it’s a hundred years from now, that’s still the blink of a cosmic eye.

Bear in mind that there’s no such thing as a failed experiment—only data.”—Jesse Bering (via chopa)
