That's ****ing beautiful.

Quote by ihartfood
Not made up at all. Pretty much every private school in my city is like that, with a long list of books that are banned for awful, obscure reasons.



I'm not denying that. But it's from 9gag, so I wouldn't have a hard time believeing that some guy went and made that just so people could be like "lol icried its beatufl great oc man".

I know it's probably BS, but I just read this on Facebook. It's worth reading the whole thing.

A NYC Taxi driver wrote:

I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift I thought about just driving away, but instead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.

After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940's movie.

By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.

There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and glassware.

'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.

She kept thanking me for my kindness. 'It's nothing', I told her.. 'I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother to be treated.'

'Oh, you're such a good boy, she said. When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, 'Could you drive
through downtown?'

'It's not the shortest way,' I answered quickly..

'Oh, I don't mind,' she said. 'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a hospice.

I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening. 'I don't have any family left,' she continued in a soft voice..'The doctor says I don't have very long.' I quietly reached over and shut off the meter.

'What route would you like me to take?' I asked.

For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator.

We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.

Sometimes she'd ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.

As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, 'I'm tired.Let's go now'.
We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico.

Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.

I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.

'How much do I owe you?' She asked, reaching into her purse.

'Nothing,' I said

'You have to make a living,' she answered.

'There are other passengers,' I responded.

Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug.She held onto me tightly.

'You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,' she said. 'Thank you.'

I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light.. Behind me, a door shut.It was the sound of the closing of a life..

I didn't pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that day,I could hardly talk.What if that woman had gotten an angry driver,or one who was impatient to end his shift? What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?

On a quick review, I don't think that I have done anything more important in my life.

We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments.

But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

My cousin went to a (I think it was) protestant school and the people didn't even allow him to read Harry Potter. And this isn't Texas either, this is the Netherlands.

That's another thing that confused me. How does a school ban you from reading something? Maybe they exclude certain books from the curriculum and in extreme cases even punish students if they're caught with certain books in school (the way my school banned Pokemon cards) but surely they have no way of controlling what you read at home/in private?

This exist in their hordes. Especially faith-based boarding schools who have an interest in making sure kids don't learn to criticize their religion too much in case their disbelief means they move to a new school and they lose out on tuition fees.

This sort of angers me. It seems like the whole point of this video is that a young man had the "balls" to go help a guy who is OMG GUESS WUT HES MUSLIM!!1!7!!forty eight

I don't know, but I feel that if you aren't an asshole, you should help someone out regardless of who they are. It shouldn't be "great" or "heartwarming" to help out someone because they are part of a certain group.

That reminds me of this time I went to a bar and found this girl's phone on the floor. I returned it to her the next morning and didn't care for the cash reward she offered. Now that I think back on it, I could have used the money she offered to buy some aspirin for my hangover.

I never quite understood that whole cash for being helpful thing, tbh. Do they offer because they would have accepted money if the roles were reversed?

Or maybe they just get paranoid that monetary reward is the convention, like I would, and offer it.


anyway, when it was pissing down the other day, bought the homeless guy who always sits outside the tube station an umbrella.

and I always smile when someone who has the time/confidence has a friendly chat with one of the homeless that hang around the street I walk to work on.

This reminds me of this day I was walking around town. I was on my way home from the drug store and a homeless couple waved me over to them. I was expected them to ask for money from me, but I went over anyway. Mr. and Mrs. Clay were indeed homeless, but they didn't ask me for money.

They asked me if I had a phone on me. "No, we don't need you to call anyone," Mr. Clay said. "We just want to make sure you've got it if you need it." "It's getting late," Mrs. Clay said. "Do you have friends to walk with you after dark?" "There are some bad parts to town," Mr. Clay told me. And he gave me a list of places to watch for and told me where was and was not safe after dark. And so on and so forth. I was new to town, so I really appreciated the help. I told them that if they would wait right there, I wanted to go to the ATM and get them some money for dinner or clothing or whatever it was they needed.

"No sir. You keep the money. I missed my chances, but we've got some good people taking care of us at the church during the week, and we like to camp out and see the stars every weekend. You keep that card and keep safe. God bless."

I think that they're at a loss to properly thank them, and want to give them something to show their gratification. Everybody likes money, so that's the obvious choice.

Steve Huges on the straightness of gay men
His open mindedness gives me hope for humanity.


I've always thought kind of the same way haha. The guy who takes ballet and gets to be with the most flexible and usually pretty hot chicks is 'gay', but the dude who plays football and usually ends up in a big pile with some other guy's balls in his face is 'straight'.

I've met people who don't particularly agree with being gay, but none of them are actually homophobic. This actually goes for racists too.

edit: not saying that there aren't any homophobic or racist people. i just never met any

I've donated mine twice. The only reason it's still long is because my mother is having issues with her thyroid. It's making her hair fall out so I'm gonna give her mine. Though a friend needed a model so she trimmed 4 or 5 inches off of it.

Exactly. We've all heard of the WBC, but as far as I know, I've never personally met anyone that was outwardly hateful. They've all either been pro-gay rights or have had beliefs against certain gay rights for their own reasons but still admired their persistence and respected them as a people.

I have one main question about the process and that's about just how long it needs to be. For a guy I would say it's pretty long but I;m not sure if its long enough to donate

I, unfortunately, have. Aside from the WBC, which actually protested my school specifically a while back, I've met people who honestly believe that there is something inherently evil about homosexuality.
