you guys

Burr was like Hemingway, way before Hemingway

"Took a nap."

"Walked in the rain."

"Thought much; concluded nothing."

his writing style is so startlingly modern and minimalist

and Hamilton is all like

Blah blah "my heart bleeds" blah blah obscure classical reference blah blah inappropriate joke blah blah seventy-five page tirade

they should write a novel together, alternating chapters

it would be either an avant-garde masterpiece or a total disaster

Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”

holy fuck why the fuck do retail jobs make you do those fucking “Virtual Job Assessment” tests like jesus christ. Imagine if they had those in like the late 1800s

Over the past three days, five of your coworkers have died in the blast furnace due to a speed-up in the steel mill in which you work. Your manager says that if your plant doesn’t produce another half a ton of steel per day, he’ll cut everyone’s wages to $4/week. How would you describe your outlook on the situation?

a) I’m a person who can always see the positives in a situation
b) I enjoy a fast-paced work environment
c) I enjoy a job where my employer recognizes outstanding achievement
