this made me laugh.

i do this too.

i do this too.

people are taking the piss out of you every day. they butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. they leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. they make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and all the fun is happening somewhere else. they are on tv making your girlfriend feel inadequate. they have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. they are the advertisers and they are laughing at you. 

you however are forbidden to touch them. trademarks, intellectual property rights, and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity.

f**k that. any advert in public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. it’s yours to take re-arrange and re-use. you can do whetever you like with it. asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head. 

you owe the companies nothing. less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. they owe you. they have rearranged the world to put themselves in front of you. they never asked for your permission, don’t start asking for theirs.

[we live in] a nation that spends a smaller percentage of income on food that any other civilization has in human history- but in the name of affordability treats the animals it eats with cruelty so extreme it would be illegal if inflicted on a dog.

In a new interview, BP’s CEO said that the Gulf Coast oil spill is relatively tiny compared to the ‘very big ocean.’ That’s like telling someone who’s just been shot not to worry about the bullet because they’re really, really fat.
