I'm Keith. I'm 27. I'm Australian. I've never really been the kind of person who fits in, anywhere.
I tend to stand out, for better or worse. I tend not to care what most people think of me, except the people who encourage me to keep being me.
I'm the kind of guy who will quite happily walk down the street in a trenchcoat, top hat, vest, and tie, and not care about the weird looks I get.
I've got three piercings, and one tattoo. I'm looking to get more tattoos, but I'm not sure about more piercings.
I vent my frustrations, anxiety, and depression by writing what could be described as rock music inspired poetry.
I believe the world would be a better place, if we could each make an effort, at least once per day, to make someone else smile.

I’m unsure if it’s any good, but I just posted it anyway. Criticism would be welcome. It’s not in my usual style, so I don’t know if it’s good.
A fog creeps across this town,
And fades all but the brightest light.
I watch it out my bedroom window,
And I feel it’s such a pretty sight.
A fog crawls across this town,
And fades the world from sight.
I observe it from my bedroom window,
Knowing it’s a haunting night.
A fog rolls across this town,
And fades away all but the night,
I feel it through the bedroom window,
It calms me, instead of causing fright.
A fog blows across this town,
And fades all but some people’s fright,
I breathe in through my bedroom window,
As it meanders in the street light.
I keep trying to create a way it my head to turn this into something poetic, but I think I’ll have to settle for just admiring it’s beauty.
There is now a measles outbreak in New York. A whole ward of cancer patients currently undergoing chemotherapy have been exposed to it. Imagine fighting cancer for years only to die because some jackass didn’t vaccinate their brat and you caught measles.
STUPID FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT PARENTS
And likely all because they were mislead by statistics that were misread or misinterpreted by some asshole, who thought that immunization caused autism, and they thought, “Damn! i’d rather my kid be exposed to potentially fatal diseases, than have a slight chance of being neuro-atypical”
changeyourlifeline said: But in all the movies it’s a thing that happens too fast, and you need a little bit of time to find a cure to a virus or whatever explanation they use for it. Meanwhile, there are more and more infected people.
You’re right… But I’m just saying, you never see them even think, “well, wait, this is obviously a disease causing elevated testosterone and adrenaline production… what if we just feed them meat laced with sedatives?”
As soon as science is used to explain a zombie outbreak, it kind of kills off the entire idea of zombies as un-natural, unstoppable killing machines, because they’re just jacked up humans, who, in a realistic scientific setting, will burn out after just a few days.
For each hour someone’s adrenaline levels were elevated, the risk of heart failure, or other cardiovascular problems increases. Therefore, in a world where zombies are explained by science, people would only need to survive for a few days, at most.
Why not just use science to get rid of them, then? If it’s a disease, it can be cured, or immunized against. If it’s a fungus, it can be avoided.
Why not isolate and cure the initial batch of the infected?
Then, I suppose, if they used logic the whole time, it’d ruin the movie. Better that they only use it when it makes people believe “Hey, this could actually happen”.
It’s ironic, considering kids supposedly don’t filter what they say, and adults are supposed to know better than to criticise strangers.
The usual lines I get from adults include things like:
"You look like a fag!"
"Get a haircut!"
"Why would you do something like that to yourself?" (asking about my piercings)
"Why do you dress that way? It’s not normal"
While, from kids, I usually get comments like:
"Are you a magician?"
"Are you willy wonka?
"That man’s hair is a rainbow!"
or even just kids stopping and staring, with a shocked look, saying “WOW! Look at that man!”
I feel this says a lot about the politics of judging others. Kids don’t tend to do it much. It’s only when they have it drummed into their heads by an adult that something is “weird”, that they’ll say it is too.
TODAY IN BIOLOGY CLASS WE LEARNED THAT WHEN YOU MOW THE GRASS THE BLADES RELEASE A CHEMICAL THAT MAKES THAT GLORIOUS SMELL BUT THE REASON WHY THEY RELEASE THE CHEMICAL IS TO WARN OTHER GRASS BLADES OF DANGER SO WHEN WE SMELL THE FRESHLY CUT GRASS SMELL IT’S NOT JUST A GOOD SMELL IT’S THE SMELL OF THE BLOOD AND SCREAMS FOR HELP OF THOUSANDS OF GRASS BLADES
warning other grass blades of danger hahaha what are they gonna’ do they just grass
There’s some information missing here.
The study that showed this about grass didn’t say that it was to “warn other grass blades”. It was to attract predatory insects, to attack the insects feeding on the grass.
