this gets funnier every year
This is funny because it is a true story

“An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an african tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took eachothers hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.
When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?’ (‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are)”
Literally the opposite of the American world view of “I can only be happy if somebody else has less than me”
This is beautiful
And they call the Western world civilised…

McGee (on the high number of sexual assaults per year): Everybody knows somebody with a story to tell. *looks to Tony*
Tony: … Or not tell …
I was so happy they acknowledged her… even though they didn’t actually say her name or anything. Everybody knows what that was about. But all the feels that suddenly hit me, being reminded of all of that…
I’m sleeping over at my boyfriend’s house tonight for the first time. Nothing is going to happen, it’s not that. But I kinda hate the fact that he still lives with his parents. I mean.. it’s sort of normal since we’re still young and it’s not even a year ago that he finished school and he doesn’t have a job yet so he can’t affored his own place. Neither can I. But I just find it so uncomfotable.
And I’ll also be meeting his sister and some of hisfriends and it’s all making me nervous.
I just keep wondering how people handle these sorts of things.
