Every time I think “I wish I had a chance” or “If only I was luckier” I feel ashamed for ever thinking so.
This is a picture of shoes. Not just any shoes, these are Lebron X. They are the highest priced Nike shoes (non-celebrity owned or signed) at $315.
A post on r/gaming today caught my attention regarding someone on craigslist taking advantage of and violating the terms and conditions of a Humble Bundle sale. In short, humble bundle is giving away $150 worth of games for anyone to purchase at any amount (you can pay only $1 to get the games) however the donations go towards charity.
So a man is purchasing these all of these games at around $5 and instead of directing others to the site, he decides to sell them at ‘half-price’ on craigslist.
So what’s the correlation between these pictures?
Let’s say you’re the owner of a shoe company of… Nike. You purchase your product from China for $2-5 and sell it here in America for $315, but that’s not being a ‘scumbag’, that’s capitalism.
"But he’s stealing from charity!"
But Nike has been exploiting sweatshop workers under slave conditions for decades.
Wrap your mind around that shit while you #swag out with your 6th pair of Air Jordans.
(I’m guilty too. I fucking love capitalism.)

This scene didn’t sit well with me.
I think BMO was erasing part of himself to feel something
(much like how people harm themselves under stress, or do drugs to forget things).
What’s wrong, BMO?

This photo was taken at the funeral of Evandro João da Silva, a mentor and coordinator for the group, who was killed in an assault in October of 2009 in Rio De Janeiro. That teacher taught him and several other kids how to play musical instruments, and they would all play to raise donations for sick kids
Diego died at the age of 12 in March of 2010 from complications of leukemia.
…His mother was diagnosed with brain cancer before Diego got diagnosed with leukemia.
Is a far crueler blogger than I am.
