I do not understand why prostitution is illegal. Why should prostitution be illegal? Selling is legal. Fucking is legal. Why isn’t selling fucking legal? You know, why should it be illegal to sell something that’s perfectly legal to give away? I can’t follow the logic on that at all. Of all the things you can do to a person, giving someone an orgasm is hardly the worst thing in the world. In the army they give you a medal for spraying napalm on people. Civilian life, you go to jail for giving someone an orgasm. I don’t understand it.

In all seriousness, I do think prostitution should be legal, provided that women are not being pressed into it against their will. If anything, legalizing it would bring it out of the dark and prevent most of those abuses from occurring in the first place. It wouldn’t be perfect, but I dare say it’d be better than the status quo (prostitutes are easily victimized partly because the illegality of what they do keeps them from seeking legal help - something a lot of pimps and abusers are well aware of).
Two hipsters walk into a bar. The first one did it before it was cool, and the second one did it ironically.
The funniest part is that this was tweeted by a politician from Iceland.

Beware science! It will free your mind and erode your prejudice and senseless dogma. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was real. Several churches already explicitly denounce science and skepticism as the literal work of Satan…all the better to control you.
|Me:||Man, I think I can be too loud, awkward, and talkative sometimes|
|Friend:||Dude, you're too self-conscious. Stop thinking about it so much.|
|Me:||...damn, now I'm feeling self-conscious about being too self-conscious.|
…I need one of those baby-monitors for my subconscious to my consciousness so I can know what the hell I’m really thinking about. Sometimes I talk to myself fluently in languages I’m unfamiliar with… just to screw with my subconscious. It’s a good thing a lot of people speak foreign languages, otherwise those people would have no one to talk to.
Though the skit is meant to be humorous, I think it touches on a real view that most people have towards mental illness or psychological problems.
I can totally relate to this, and I’m sure I’m not alone. Physical beauty is one thing, but an exceptional mind is far more deep and engaging (not to mention more deserving of love, in my opinion).
