HEY TUMBLR!  Have you heard?

They’re giving away Sims 2 for FREE from now until July 31.

Totally legit copies of the whole game including ALL expansions and “stuff” packs. Just register the code I-LOVE-THE-SIMS on Origin before July 31 and the game is yours to either download and install right away or save for later. More details at the official EA Games site and Gamespot.

ETA: You may have to edit the game’s “GraphicRules.sgr” file to make it display properly since the game is likely older than your PC. For help with that see kiri’s Graphics Card fixes thread at leefish.nl or these instructions at SimsVIP.com.

I’m really glad that this picture is circulating tumblr. Young adults today often forget that Christianity isn’t evil. Just like Muslims aren’t evil. It’s the extremists that give the entire religion a bad name. Please stop making assumptions that Christians are hateful, narrow minded people. My mom is very religious and she is one of the most open minded, loving people I know.

YES THANK YOU

A few months ago, this preacher guy (Preacher Tom, for anyone who might have had a similar experience with the guy) came to my campus and started spewing hateful and judgmental things at passers-by. Knowing he would be back, I created Zealous Preacher Bingo cards, with a few friends’ suggestions for spaces. We gave out candy to anyone who won.

I love how “Yelling” is the free space

I got drunk and wrote a song and I wrote down the lyrics and the chords but I knew I wouldn’t remember the melody once I sobered up so I recorded it and showed it to a friend who responded to to really well and I asked them if I should post it on tumblr and they said yes. So here ya go tumblr.

Also I wrote the chords first and they went in a circle pattern around the frets and I just went from there.

Dear Emma: pursue a music career holy shit.

been singing this so i’m reblogging it again.

You know, if I was a parent, it would be at this point that I’d rip the game from his hands, stash it in my backpack, and force him to enjoy history goddamnit. This vacation cost a lot and the game is only for the hotel and travel time.

imagine trying to force someone to think that stonehenge is fun

"look kid we’re a ridiculous distance from a bunch of broken rocks how could you possibly be bored this is totally an appropriate vacation spot for someone this age."

Ah, fuck. Shit like this always gets to me, the tired old technophobe spiel and maybe it’s because it’s so rampant in my field (I work in outdoor education), but it just starts feeling so goddamn derivative after a while, nouveau hipsters who think the world is ending because kids play too many video games.
But what we’re missing is that this kid’s parents bought him his SP and a copy of Leaf Green (the employee at the game store said it would be perfect for him) so that he would shut up on the plane ride over and not bother them in the hotel, imagining that as soon as they touched down the kid would put the thing down and appreciate all the castles and grass and cafes and operas and rocks and ~*~culture~*~, because that’s what culture and history are, right? A bunch of old rocks.
What they missed is this kid staying up way past his bedtime the night before their plane flew out on message boards and chat rooms trying to find out which is the best starter, finally settled on a Squirtle and named it Rocky, and right now while his parents are appreciating rocks he and Rocky have got to save the whole world from Team Rocket because he’s a hero and that’s what heroes do and he’s so invested in this story and this world, he thinks he might have found the place where Machops live, why should he care about a guide droning on about Romans and a bunch of old people taking pictures?But please, go ahead and take the Gameboy from him, break it in half and remind him that you spent A LOT on this vacation, and HOW DARE HE. You will FORCE him to ENJOY his GODDAMN VACATION because it’s REAL LIFE. Wonder why he’s so upset, you’re the one who spent money on the thing? All he invested in it was time and emotion, and those things are definitely less important than money, when you’re eight. Wonder why he’s so disconnected from education, when you’ve managed to turn it into a punishment, a deprivation, a source of misery? Go on and repeat the tired old technophobe line until you’re red in the face, share it on Facebook and reblog it on Tumblr and retweet it on Twitter: nobody but you knows how to live ~*~REAL LIFE~*~ because we’re so busy exploring imaginary worlds.
Kids don’t just need to be taught when to use devices, we as their parents and guardians also need to be taught why they use devices. If a kid is more invested in Kanto than Stonehenge, why? How can we change our approach so kids ~*~appreciate real history~*~? And if not, can’t we just accept and appreciate that this kid will go back to the third grade, say “Yeah, I saw Stonehenge, it was neat, but who wants to trade a Haunter for my Machoke?”
