the fact that american schools make kids recite that pledge to the government thing everyday fucking terrifies me

We don’t pledge allegiance to our government. We pledge allegiance to our country. There is a really big difference, for a country that was founded to have as small a federal government as possible.

it’s still pretty fucking weird

We pledge to the country, true. But also to “the republic for which it stands”. Also, no one has even mentioned the “one nation under god” bit yet, which might actually be the worst part of all.

Nowhere near as classy as it sounds, but definitely just as cool. 

I don’t know anything about “The Vampire Diaries” but the concept amuses me.

A typical day on London Underground…

The only unrealistic part of this is that the Met is still running

The Whitest Kids U’ Know x

I really spent four years in the states thinking this couldn’t possibly be a real thing but then I graduated and everyone knew the pledge of allegiance PERFECTLY and then I realized how true this gifset really is. If you say something enough as a kid, it’ll never leave you. The thing tho, is that normally, kids know lullabies, and songs. Not a poem about mindless patriotism.

REBLOGGING FOR ALL THE FUCKING TIMES I GOT IN TROUBLE, MAINLY IN HIGH SCHOOL, FOR NOT SAYING THE WEAK ASS PLEDGE!

SAME! I used to “baaaaaaa” during the pledge in middle school lol

in high school one of my teachers told me that if i didnt say the pledge, i had to write him an essay to explain why. The next day i dropped 5 pages of fuck you on his desk in mla format and i never had to say the pledge in that class again

There were a lot of issues I had with the pledge. I was actually extremely uncomfortable saying it, even in elementary school and tended to just stand there awkwardly in the position without saying anything.

Incidentally, this is also how I get through meals at the houses of religious people when they want to say grace. I think it’s that specific parallel that made me the most uncomfortable.

…My highschool never had us say the pledge actually. And come to think of it I don’t remember having to say it in 7th or 8th grade either. Just every year before that. Hm.

FINALLY.

I’ve been saying this about the pledge of allegiance since 1st grade, and although I got shit for it every year, I never said it.14 years later, people are finally coming around. 

In 4 hours I need to wake up

In 6 hours I need to leave for SFO

In 10 hours I’ll be on the place back to Heathrow

In 24 hours I’ll be moving into my new flat (and seeing it for the first time)

…so I suppose a good first step would be going to sleep
