No no now I’m interested.

For $5,000 I’ll quit Tumblr for a month.

$50,000, I’ll quit for a year but post if I write a new article.

$100,000 I’ll quit for a year.

$500,000 I’ll quit permanently.

I’ll go create a crowdfunding page this week.

> Losers who waste their time sending hatemail on Tumblr.
> Leaving the basement ever.
> Leaving the basement to go to work.
> Working at a job capable of earning enough money to be able to waste money on crowdfunding.
> Paying to crowdfund something that would potentially make it harder for them to send hatemail.
> Having any goal in life beyond a public response to their hatemail so they can giggle themselves to sleep in the basement they never leave.

The only possible way I could see this working is if you give an option that for $36 you’ll publicly post any vile piece of hatemail they send you. Be sure to require that all such personal recognition options be in exact multiples of $18 because it will be funnier that way. The idiots won’t know why it’s funnier, but the inside joke will be priceless.

Bob Dylan - The Man in Me (The Big Lebowski version)

This has to be the best title scene in the history of cinema. There’s really no way to top this scene from The Big Lebowski.

"Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)"

This is the house in downtown Winchester, Virginia where Patsy Cline lived longer than any other house in her tragically short life.  She was born and spent most of her life in Winchester, Frederick County, and other parts of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia such as Lexington before moving to Nashville, Tennessee where she was living when she perished in that tragic plane crash in 1963.  In 1957, after her early success in Northern Virginia and beyond on the Arthur Godfrey Talent Scouts (which had a national audience), Patsy Cline bought this house on 608 S. Kent St. in Winchester as well as the property on 702 S. Kent St. three houses down for her mother.  She originally moved to the house on 608 S. Kent St. with her mother and brother in 1948 when she was 16 after her parents’ marriage ended.  Thanks to her daughter’s gift, her mother was able to always rent one of the properties out and live in the other house so she always had a measure of financial security as a single mother and later as a grandmother raising her daughter’s children after the tragic plane crash.  Her mother eventually purchased the property at 605 S. Kent St. and lived there until she passed away in 1998.

You’ve got to love the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia: $2.799 a gallon at a Shell station is a price so good that the driver of a pickup truck towing a cannon could not refuse on his way back to West Virginia where gas is more expensive. This weekend was the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Cedar Creek and there was apparently a reenactment that I unfortunately missed. I already knew how it was going to end and unfortunately it wasn’t going to be pretty for Jubal Early and the home team in Virginia.  There was a family on the tour of the Patsy Cline Historic House today visiting from Arizona for the reenactment because one of their ancestors won the Medal of Honor in that battle.  They said he captured an enemy flag.  According to the nametags the family members were wearing, their ancestor was from Indiana.

A girl who went to my high school got accepted to Harvard and went to Notre…

Yeah, it’s not like there aren’t a ton of these “social justice” idiots who are also in-state students, I cited GMU in comparison to two other Virginia schools, only used the term “in-state” specifically in the context of in-state tuition compared to the scholarship my friend received (I also received the same academic scholarship which was the highest amount an in-state, commuter student could receive), or there are tens of thousands of other out-of-state students at the largest university in the Commonwealth of Virginia or anything, right?

A girl who went to my high school got accepted to Harvard and went to Notre Dame.

I had a friend during freshman year at GMU who turned down a full-ride scholarship to Harvard for a $6,000 scholarship to GMU ($750 a semester). Full-time, in-state, undergraduate tuition was $1,878 a semester back then at GMU. Last I heard, she was working at “Big-Four” firm, Deloitte. I had another friend who transferred to GMU from MIT. He now works as an engineer at Google. I only applied to GMU because it was the only school to which I could realistically commute. GMU was so much better as a “commuter school” when a significant portion of the students had jobs and picked GMU so they could save money by commuting or other family reasons. “Safety school” reputation or not back then, there were a lot of really smart students who easily could have gone elsewhere but chose GMU because of its location in relation to family. Now that GMU is more selective than Virginia Tech and JMU, the number of students who goof off arguing with fellow idiots on Tumblr and Facebook (neither existed when I started at GMU, thankfully) all day instead having to work to pay for tuition, car loans, gas, and other expenses has drastically increased. Sadly, the university bent over backwards to accommodate these losers and now focuses primarily on attracting these idiots with this “primarily residential” nonsense that started when GMU built a bunch of new dorms but was still something like 80% commuter.

Do you want to know the best way to be gainfully employed after graduating college? Don’t wait until after college to start working and filling up your resume with actual marketable skills that can be confirmed by your past supervisors and coworkers whom you should be listing as references, not random friends online. Tumblr famous is not a marketable skill or accomplishment for resume purposes. The few people in the “real world” who have actually heard of Tumblr most definitely haven’t heard positive things about it.

If you’re going to make a post about me, just tag me.

What? I was referring to how GMU is all “social justice” now and how bending over backwards to accommodate these idiots has led to focusing on attracting them. Please stop assuming that everything I post is somehow about you. Thanks.
