D’aaaaaw Google is so nice.
Happy new year BTW. I’ve been busy and stuff.
"…and then tumblr comments became nothing more that a chain reaction of self righteous indignation where everything can be reduced to good vs evil and any attempt to look into the possibility of more complex scenarios it’s undoubtedly looked as an act of aggression"

This is why tumblr is becoming stale and dumb.
You either spend time mindlessly reblogging or you spend time getting angry at the “evils of the world” and the people who try to argue that it isn’t like that and that the world is a lot more complicated.

To this day I’m not sure my monitor ever paid attention to me, but it was a pretty satisfying chat and a clear sign that I had lost grip of reality while playing that game.
