Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there. It doesn’t matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.

But this is only going to be a real debate if you guys can cop to your real-life feelings and opinions. You should have a bit more courage and put your actual motives front and center. Instead, because some of you do have a certain degree of political savvy, as is evidenced whenever GamerGaters on 8chan and elsewhere try to rein in their more unhinged peers, you’ve decided to go the “journalism ethics” route.


Unfortunately, that sauce is incredibly weak.

WOW, so this is from a Reddit post by a journalist, responding to criticism of a piece he wrote about #GamerGate in the Boston Globe

This quote is a highlight from an outstanding post, one of the most direct, perfect take-downs of people’s bullshit defenses I’ve seen, so I went to dig up the author’s name to credit him for this quote and guess what! He’s hannanimal's ex roommate Jesse Singal, a really cool and smart dude. I love when someone I already liked makes me like them even more. 

One of his friends popped Michael, our inflatable penguin, but I refuse to hold that against him.

895. Muggleborns wonder why there’s a large group of friendly, teenage ghosts around Hogwarts. They’re led by a funny boy with red hair who likes to joke around with Peeves, and he always says that they’re Dumbledore’s Last Army.
