Hi there. My name is Simplescience, my real first name being Matt. I came to funnyjunk in the hopes of making it a little better than when I found it. Optimistic, cheerful, and a logical thinker, I do my best to make other people feel better if they are down.









My profile picture is of Mr. Game and Watch using the move Judgement: 9. This move has a 1/10 chance of bringing up a 9. If a 9 comes up and it connects with an opponent, it is a One-Hit Knock Out.

1) The singularity at the heart of a black hole is [pretty close to] one dimensional, but it's gravitational field propagates in all directions, meaning the hole itself is 3D.

2) Light is the universal speed limit. So even if an object went into a black hole at the speed of light, and even if it was accelerated, it would not exceed that speed. Instead, time would slow down relative to the object in question. Special relativity--it's some whacky shit.

3) Yup, that's about it.
#29 - anonymous (03/05/2013) [-]
Actually mostly general relativity.

Special relativity doesn't deal with acceleration.
User avatar #16 - simplescience (03/05/2013) [-]
1) That's what I thought, but I wanted to check and make sure.

2) Forgive me for sounding dumb, but if I understand you correctly, are you saying that light itself does not speed up, but time just slows down around it?

3) Yay, I got one right.
User avatar #18 - allamericandude (03/05/2013) [-]
The speed of light (c) is the universal speed limit (I don't know why, but Einstein said so, so it's cool with me.) So as an object approaches (or tries to exceed) the speed of light, a few things can happen:

1) It's mass will increase, due to E=mc^2 (which is loosely related to the kinetic energy equation, E=(1/2)mv^2). If you're velocity (v or c) can't go any higher, but more energy (E) is being added, you're mass (m) will have to increase.

2) Distances will contract. If you're in a train moving at the speed of light, and you look at the path in front of you, a distance of 100m may appear to only be 50m. And if you're an outside observer looking at the train, the length of the train will appear contracted.

3) Time will slow down relative to you. Remember that the equation for velocity is v=d/t, where d is distance and t is time. If you're velocity can't change, as is the case for light, then either the distances can change (see above) or the times can change. The speed of light is the same in all reference frames, meaning that no matter where you are observing from, light always travels at lightspeed. So if you're in that same train travelling near the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, you will see the light move away from you at the speed of light. But if you're an outside observer looking at you in the train, you will appear to be moving slower so that both you and the light from your headlights appear to be moving at lightspeed.

Here's some videos about it:

*you will appear to be moving slower

That should be "your clock will appear to be moving slower than the observer's clock".

I've done that a number of times, and I've rarely received a red-thumb sea for it. There have been dissenters, but I've found that if you provide enough reasoning for your statement, people are more likely to consider your opinion and take you seriously rather than thumbing you down to oblivion.

It could also be the fact that most of the people here are of high school age. Everyone is dumb in high school, girls and guys, so it's unlikely you'll find anyone worthwhile there. I ended up making a bunch of asshole friends in high school, only to go to college and find people who were a lot better.

I will say one thing though, that having a female friend isn't the end of the world. It's usually not socially acceptable to talk about your feelings with guys, because guys aren't supposed have them, so having someone that it is acceptable to talk about your feelings with is invaluable.

Also, some girls just aren't attracted to you. Plain and simple, and there isn't really anything you can do about that.

That's always great. I get most of my syntax and diction from fights with my ex-girlfriend, honestly. I've found that the only way to calm a raging bull is to be calmer than the bull before the rage.

Well, thank you! I'm glad to be able to clarify what I'm trying to say without sounding like a bumbling buffoon. You seem to effortlessly throw your sentences together as well, and even with complex sentence structure, your sentences are easy to follow.

I find an angry debate the least useful. It isn't truly a debate if there is no swaying of opinion being had. There's no reason to get angry because you didn't downsize my opinion a single time; you simply stated your own and gave your own supporting details. People are too sensitive to words nowadays. People believe that because they get offended, something should be done about the offense.

I'm always open to a friendly debate about any topic I have knowledge on. If I'm ignorant on the topic, then it's more of a lesson than a debate. Feel free to PM me or comment on my profile at any time; there's never a time that I'm not willing to socialize. Even in the worst of moods, the only cure to irritability is letting yourself be in your normal environment -- which happens to be socialization in my case.

Thank you for your compliment. While I'm not disagreeing, I fail to see any abnormal expressions that I've said. Although, if I said them, they must be normal to me. It's also a possibility that I'm saying expressions incorrectly; I'm not a native English speaker.

I'll do the honors of sending you a friend request.
User avatar #522 - simplescience (03/01/2013) [-]
Not a native English speaker? You truly could have fooled me (not sarcasm). I never would have guessed.

As for me, my English usage comes from my parents. They have an extensive vocabulary and love reading, and as a result, they're great at using the language. They bestowed such wisdom on me, and I just ran with it. For that I am grateful.

As for abnormal expressions, what I meant is that you found ways to reword your statements if I misunderstood or if they were unclear, making it easier for me to reply. What made it more impressive is that, in my opinion, these weren't light topics, yet you were able to rephrase them (what seemed like from my perspective) effortlessly. That's amazing.

Friend request accepted. :)

I think you've got me beat at this point. I don't have a rebuttal for that because I see no flaws in your argument.

I have to say, you're the most intellectual person I've ever had the pleasure to debate with, and you definitely know your way around the English language. I'm glad to have had this opportunity.
#520 - simplescience (03/01/2013) [-]
I thank you very much for such a kind compliment. I would like to share my opinion of you as well.

You are someone I'm glad to have conversed with, especially because throughout our discourse, you did not sink to calling me names or trying to start a ragefest, or dismiss what I said for an arbitrary reason. You continued to converse with me even though our views are different, and when I misunderstood, you instead told me what you meant instead of calling me names. Such a conversational partner seems to not come along very often, and I'm honestly glad that we had this discourse. If you ever are really bored and check through other comments I've made, you'll find I love to have debates, as I believe they keep the mind sharp.

I would like to also return the compliment in regards to mastery of the English language. It was always fun to read your replies because you went beyond normal expressions to get your point home.

Perhaps we'll have another discussion sometime?

I never even claimed that all the users on this site are morons, you're just assuming that. All I said what that they are bipolar to the point where you'll see posts hating on a certain topic one day, and the next day it will be the complete obvious. As in the site as a whole has a bipolar tendency, not every single user.

You've basically gone against my claims by stating that I needed physical proof , that you were correct based off of the fact that maybe a few users on this site agree with you, and that you were just using "common sense". I'm speaking from what I assumed was common sense and my own past experience, put you claimed these as irrelevant, but the same can be said about your own argument. Like I said, you claim I lack evidence when you're the one basing your whole argument on a rather infinitesimal portion of a website for funny pictures, you're claim of using logical reasoning (which is a very abstract subject), but you really have no other supporting points besides that. So of course I dismissed your evidence as nearly irrelevant.

Now back on subject. You claim that any atheistic or agnostic person is oppressed in society, and I only disagreed. Now, unless you live in some deep south, strongly conservative town, generally almost every Christian I can think of are tolerant to the beliefs of others unless you try to shove yours down their throats -which seems to happen A LOT on here.

Religious people run the world? In a way yes, mainly because they are the majority, so of course the majority of leaders are religious. But they're certainly not oppressed from being able to achieve in life. Although there aren't many non-religious people who hold public offices in the US, it is quite common in many other countries. Plus a large percentage of scientists and other related professions are atheistic as well. So the non-religious are being oppressed and treated as outcasts? Hardly.

#519 - simplescience (03/01/2013) [-]
As I said in my statement, you didn't claim it, but you heavily implied it. By saying that they are bipolar and constantly changing their opinions/hopping on a bandwagon, you're implying that a majority of the users here are too stupid to think for themselves and will instead just follow whatever appears to be the popular opinion. So, yeah, you didn't say exactly that the people of the site are dumb, but you made quite the heavy implication from it.

Furthermore, you assume that just because a piece of content makes it to the front page, that automatically means that the entire site agrees with it being there. You also assume that it's always the same people thumbing up the differing content which gets it to the front page and noticed, that it's the same people who make the comments that agree with religious posts and then turn around and agree with atheists posts. By saying "the site as a whole", that means you're including every user who uses the site. if you make any exclusions, then its not the site as a whole, just part of it.

You claim they are hardly oppressed and treated as outcasts, that my whole argument is based on the comments section of my original comment. The comment favoring my side is only the tip of the iceberg, as I'm about to show you. You want evidence? I've got plenty:

First: tinyurl.com/mnljwa
Second: tinyurl.com/37683

Read all these and then try to justify your position that atheists "hardly" face oppression or are treated as outcasts. Don't be shy about asking for more either, there's plenty where those came from.

So we're deciding this based on Funnyjunk users, many of whom are bipolar to the point that they blatantly speak about how religion is such an awful thing one day, then preach about how atheists shove their beliefs down people's throats and how religion is a good thing the next. Your statements are no more supported than mine.
User avatar #514 - simplescience (03/01/2013) [-]
First off, you assume all funnyjunk users are morons (you don't state it directly, but it is obviously implied), which is really mean of you. If you read just some of the conversations I've had below, that alone proves that your claim is incorrect, as it has been seen that plenty of funnyjunk users are intelligent enough to think for themselves.

Second, if what you claim about funnyjunk users being "bipolar" was true, then it stands to reason I would have had many more complaints to my comment. The chance that everybody's "bipolar" tendencies are perfectly in sync with one another is practically zero. Case in point, you displayed the "characteristics" you defined in your statement, meaning that not all of funnyjunk users think the same, meaning that I should have had more strong dissenters besides you. I did not, so therefore, your statement is nothing more than a farce, and is invalid.

You backed yourself into a corner. If your bipolar statement is not allowed to stand, then all you're doing is basically saying that the evidence doesn't lean in my direction just because you don't like the it. Even if your bipolar statement is allowed to stand, I've already proven it to be invalid.

I'm not done yet.

Third, you're making a strawman argument in response to my claim. I have evidence on this comment thread that I can point to, and logical reasoning to back it up. Your counter-argument is attacking the evidence presented by basically saying "that evidence doesn't count", with no further proof of backing it up other than your mass generalization.

Based on these points, my presented evidence is still allowed to stand because I have provided evidence, and you have not satisfactorily dismissed it. Therefore, your comment claiming of our statements being of equal merit is rendered invalid, and by extension, your statement of over-exaggeration is also rendered invalid unless you can bring a real argument to the table.

The burden of proof is on you.

all the reasons you posted still pale in comparison to what happens to women in third world countries. my point is that men and women in OUR society have equal problems, but outside of privileged first world countries, women are literally trash.

lets just say, inside the USA i am a human rights activist, but outside the USA i am a human rights activists focused mainly on feminism.

yes its terrible about all those thing that happen to men and honestly sometimes i feel like women get a slightly better deal because if we have an issue we arent taught to suppress it and bury it like men are. i have multiple male friends who have been raped, and they have not been able to talk to people or have their problems sorted out or have the rapist brought to justice. but even that, doesnt not compare to how the gang raping of women is literally used as a mode of warfare in sudan.
User avatar #60 to #59 - simplescience (09/07/2013) [-]
I think some clarification is in order here (and before you think I'm saying this in a "you're wrong and let me to tell you why" manner, I implore you to read on and wait until the end).

I never said Feminism is not needed. Feminism is indeed very much needed in third world countries. I happen to know that exceptionally well since I am the Research Officer of an anti-human trafficking group on my campus. Those countries need to give women the tools they need to succeed where they clearly are not apparent in any form.

What I have a problem with is not that women need to be empowered in countries where they are treated more as property than people, it's how Feminism aims to go about this. I implore you to provide evidence if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that Feminism aims to empower women in a way that could also be a long-term detriment to men. Before you say that they need to have some of their power curbed (which is true), let me explain myself.

Take America for example, Feminism has gained many rights for women, but look at the cost to men. Boys are never really encouraged to be proud of themselves as boys; they are rarely given the kind of support that girls get for being proud of their gender. This is just one example. I could go on.

My problem with Feminism is that in its mission to push for equality, it seems like it doesn't even let boys sit at the discussion table and often dismiss males input.

Then, the movement justifies this unfair exclusion by basically saying "Females in other countries are treated shitty, so your problems of how men are treated in this country don't matter and won't be addressed "(I have talked with a handful of Feminists who have said or implied that my opinion of Feminism is invalid because I'm a male).

To be blunt, what happens to women in other nations is completely irrelevant as to why Feminism rarely if ever addresses the problems men face in America. Yes, women being gang-raped in Sudan is terrible, and action should be taken to stop that. However, that does not give Feminism a free pass to push young boys and men to the side.

Feminism wants to have its cake and eat it too in America. It wants to make the bold declaration of seeking equality for both genders, and then wants to justify the unfair treatment of males by saying that horrible things happen to women in other nations, effectively saying that because of other countries problems, Feminism is allowed to push boys to the side.

By doing that, Feminism thus acts in the same behavior as the patriarchy they condemn, I.E. "Sit down, shut up, you're not allowed to speak".

To sum it all up, yes, the problems I listed do pale in comparison to problems face in other countries, but that does not justify the blatant disregard for concerns of mens rights in America. That would be like me going to a college professor and saying "Due to homework I had in another class, I did not remember to do the 3 week project you assigned 2 1/2 weeks ago". That excuse wouldn't fly in that situation, and it should not (and in my mind, does not) fly when Feminism uses it.

first of all, you seriously need to learn how to not say so much because i really really do not care enough about this situation to read all that.

and yes american feminism implies that it is for the rights of women and only women, i agree with you. which is why i focus more on equal rights than womens rights.

but dude for reals chill it with the blah blah
User avatar #62 to #61 - simplescience (09/07/2013) [-]
You're the one that opened the door for this kind of response by calling male rights activists trivial and then implying mens rights concerns aren't important because of gang-raping in Sudan.

Besides, would you prefer that I give you a lengthy response that shows I actually know what I'm talking about and gives insight into my point, or would you prefer a short response where I pretty much just say you're wrong and call you names?
User avatar #63 to #62 - flingwing (09/07/2013) [-]
i was saying male rights activists are as trivial as first world feminism, which is, sometimes but not always. because some male activists whine about dumb trash like friendzoning, much like some first world feminists whine about dumb trash like girls getting killed in videogames being supposedly rape. other mens rights activists strive for equality like male custody rights or help for male rape victims, much like other first world feminists strive for equality such as trans womens oversexualization in the porn industry or sexism in the workplace. i wasnt saying mens rights were trvial, i said they were only as trvial as the problems women have in a first world society. basically what im saying is we should stop worrying about equality in our own country because most of the problems we have with equality are social issues that for the most part can only be worked out with awareness campaigns instead of legal action, and instead worry about the equality in other countries

Yay friends! I'm going into the US Navy to learn Applied Sciences. Advanced Electronics specifically.
User avatar #57 to #56 - simplescience (05/05/2013) [-]
That sounds very intriguing. May I ask why?
User avatar #58 to #57 - bulbakip (05/05/2013) [-]
To study advanced electronics! :D and get a career in science going, for free. getting paid to workout and learn and travel, sounds good to me.

Hi.
User avatar #55 to #28 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
It seems I cannot reply to your reply to my comment on the part of you that is unattractive, so I am bringing this back up here. I have this to say about whatever it is you have done to your arm: If a man is going to turn you away because he doesn't understand the torment you went through earlier in your life, then that asswipe is not worth your time, but there will be someone that will be willing to help with that pain and will assure you, much better than I can, that you are not an ugly or terrible person.

Hello there.
User avatar #30 to #29 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
What's up?
User avatar #31 to #30 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
Nothing much. I'm just browsing the web until I feel tired enough to go to bed. What's up with you?
User avatar #32 to #31 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
I just got dumped. :)
So I'm feeling preeeeeeeeetttttttty shitty.
..Yup...
User avatar #33 to #32 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
I'm sorry you had to deal with such a painful experience. Is there something I can do to help?
User avatar #34 to #33 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
Just chatting I suppose.
I think I saw your comment yesterday, about never having a girlfriend and whatever else. All I'm going to say is, Don't bother. You honestly aren't missing out on much...
User avatar #35 to #34 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
Why do you say that, may I ask?
User avatar #36 to #35 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
I'm young, I've attempted to be in relationships. Now, because of my physical appearance, I can only seem to woo the attention of guys on the internet. Now, not only that, I have only ever gotten into one relationship in which I'd call it serious. That's the one I was just in, of course, he just decided to fuck me over, like everyone else has. From what I've experienced, getting into a relationship seems to only harm, and rarely does any real good.

Anyway...I think that maybe we should stay on a topic which is much lighter than the terms of my past relationships. How are you this evening, dear sir? And what are you planning on doing for the rest of the evening? :D
User avatar #37 to #36 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
On the note of relationships, I would just like to share a bit of my own personal experiences. Now, I've never had a relationship, but I've had several friends tell me about their breakups and they tell me how they will never get into another one. I know we've just began conversing, but I would like to tell you what I tell my other friends. I will not deny the pain behind a breakup, but I ask that you not condemn an entire gender or shut out a potential relationship due to the actions of a few slime-balls.

I am actually doing quite well this evening. I am doing quite well. I've talked to a few friends and played some pokemon as well. As for the rest of the evening, I plan on listening to music and playing some more Pokemon Black 2. How about you?
User avatar #38 to #37 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
Well, it's sunday, 5:21 pm here...Planning on just doing some homework, before messing around with my ears, and their piercings. Maybe even playing some xbox. I'm looking for some new friends for skype though...
User avatar #41 to #38 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
I haven't used Skype in forever, mostly because I'm usually bogged down by schoolwork (due to being a Chemistry major in college).

By the way, you mentioned you said you can only woo men over the internet due to your physical appearance? What does that entail exactly? I ask since you don't sound like that bad of a person, and I don't exactly think looks alone determine how attractive someone is.
User avatar #42 to #41 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
My skype is amissingmouse if you wanna add me.

I'm just ugly. That's it.
User avatar #43 to #42 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
This may sound cliche and corny, but physical appearance alone does not determine how attractive you are. You shouldn't put yourself down so harshly. Even if you're not what most define as physically attractive, that does not mean you're doomed to no relationship like I am. Quite the opposite actually. In my experience, personality can make one forego the looks of a potential dating partner, and on that note:

I may have been without a relationship my entire life, I did fall in love with a woman in New York that one would probably not be considered attractive by societal norms, but she was sweet and intelligent. When I would talk to her, I didn't care for one moment what she looked like. I was just happy talk to her. I know you will find someone that will love you for who you are.

A favored quote that I tell my friends who are down is that life is like a jump rope. Things may be down now, but they will get better.
User avatar #44 to #43 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
I wish they would get better.
You're talking to someone who just doesn't give a shit, and has already given up.
User avatar #45 to #44 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
I apologize in advance if anything I say in this reply offends you.

I ask you that not unfairly condemn and dismiss guys. I ask that you not give up and surrender. You are not a bad person, and you're not the ugly or unattractive person you tell me you are. How could I say this after only talking to you for a few replies? I'll tell you.

Talking to you, I've found that you have a genuinely friendly personality. You, to some extent, enjoy conversation and making friends. Speaking from my own wants, I know I like someone who is willing to converse with me, and I'm betting several other people do as well. When it comes to making friends, while I can't speak for the entirety of the male gender, I know that I (and probably other guys out there) would much rather have a friendly and pleasant woman that enjoys conversation who might not have what might be considered physically beautiful over some gorgeous woman who has an ego the size of the Hindenburg and talks down to people.

To quote one of my favorite songs by Blue October: "Don't lose yourself, or your hope. Life's like a jump rope....it (life) will get hard, but remember life's like a jump rope". There might come a person who will just find you to be the most amazing woman on the planet, and you definitely deserve someone like that. Should someone like that come along, don't let that person escape because of the douchebag actions of people in your past. Those assholes from the past may not be worth your time, but someone out there will think you're amazing, and if you're willing to be a little patient and not let some slime-balls keep you down, then I believe that person will come along.

Don't dismiss yourself, or any part thereof. Don't give up on love and happiness just because of some player asshole that wouldn't wouldn't know how to be a good man even if someone came up and gave him detailed instructions.

I know from talking to my other friends, and from rejections that I face, that hearing what I'm saying can be hard to believe, hard to listen to, or hard to accept. I'm not saying immediately take in what I say and throw away your pain and sadness because I know the sting of a breakup can last, and sometimes (like with the woman in New York I mentioned earlier), that sting can last for years.

What I am saying is that if the pain ever subsides, that you don't close yourself off forever, because you are worth more than you seem to be giving yourself credit for, and you deserve more than being alone for the rest of your life.
#46 to #45 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
I honestly would never just say that all guys are douche bags, but, I seem to have met too many of them to be able to justify my views so that it goes any other way. It's kinda sad to be honest, because the more I think about it, the more I realise, that all of the guys I've met are pretty much douche bags, and i think I'm beginning to think of the rest of the male kind to be douche bags.

Until I find someone who really cares, like this guy pretended to do, I don't know what I'll do. Possibly just friendzone everyone who comes within a foot of me. That seems like a plausible answer. Not only that, I could also just stay single for the rest of my life and have a dog. Dogs are better than people from what I've experienced. They don't judge looks, or appearance, and they'll always be there for you when you need them the most. :3

As well as that, unless you can introduce me to some non-douchey guys, I honestly don't think I'm going to meet any.

Thanks for trying to be kind. Pic related, it's me. :) I look terrible, I know...
User avatar #49 to #46 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
I also noticed a split-second too late after I pressed "reply" that I did not address your picture. I would like to actually comment on it if I may.

1) I really like your hair, but then again, I really like long hair.

2) Also, none of your facial features are anywhere near as bad as you've been making them out to be. I'm betting that if you smiled, your face would light up and look even more gorgeous.

3) You don't look terrible. I know how cliche that must sound, and I realize how much of a "standard" response that sounds like, so I'm going to go a bit more in-depth. Based on the picture you have provided, you are nowhere near as ugly and terrible looking as you keep telling me. When I heard you talk about yourself like that, I had a mental image far worse than what I'm seeing, yet at the same time, I thought that there was no way someone who is as friendly as you have shown yourself to be. To sum it up, I could tell just from talking to you, that there was no way you look as bad as you say, and this picture confirms my thoughts.
User avatar #50 to #49 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
T-thank you I suppose. I've never really had people really compliment me, and it's only been recently that I've been able to accept any compliments (after the bullying..I just...no..) So thank you, I appreciate your compliment. :3
However, there is a certain part of me, which is not attractive at all, it's ugly, hideous, and something I'm going to have to live with for the rest of my life.
User avatar #51 to #50 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
Then to that, I say that, at some time, there will come a guy that will love you enough that will be able to look past this part of you that you deem unattractive, and will love you regardless.
User avatar #52 to #51 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
I don't think so..It's on my arm, no one can ever look at me the same, after seeing what damage I've caused to my arm. :c
User avatar #47 to #46 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
You say "introduce some non-douchey guys". Let me ask you something. Do you honestly believe that in the time you've talked to me that I am some douchebag guy that is judging you and thinking you're some ugly woman who will be alone forever? Do you honestly get the impression that I am some dickhead that just wants to use you? If you do believe that, then I follow up with asking how I've managed to do that?

As to your thoughts on friendzoning people, let me ask you: What if some really sweet nice guy comes along and wants to make you happy, and you let him slip away because he's been friendzoned? That's not entirely fair to guys at all. Why should all men be tarred with the same brush just because a few have wronged you? That's like saying "I had a bad plate of french fries when I went to that restaurant a few times, therefore all restaurants are going to serve me bad fries."

As I've said, I'm not saying completely turn yourself around due to my words, but at the same time, don't hold a long-standing grudge against all men and think they are all scumfucks. Give us guys a chance, eh? We're not all douchebags, just like any guy who dismisses all women is being unfair by thinking women are all mind-game playing bitches (forgive my language).
User avatar #48 to #47 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
I suppose that is true...I don't know...
You seem kind, and not douchey. I'm a bit tired, so my responses are a bit shorter.
I honestly just wanna meet someone nice :c I put so much time and effort in, only to get hurt. :c
User avatar #53 to #48 - simplescience (02/24/2013) [-]
If you're tired, then maybe lie down and take a rest, eh? I apologize for keeping you up this late with my walls of text, and I'll let you get some sleep.
User avatar #54 to #53 - amissingmouse (02/24/2013) [-]
