“It started out in high school in Louisville. We’d gather around on Saturday nights to read. It was profoundly elitist concept. It ended up being a kind of compensation for cutting school. You know, “What have you got? Where were you yesterday, Hunter?” “Well, I was down at Grady’s, on Bardstown Road, reading Plato’s allegory of the cave with Bob Butler and Norman Green, drinking beer.” I don’t know, it was cutting school. We were reading Nietzsche. It was tough, but when you’re cutting school, you’re reading for power, reading for advantage. I’ve always believed: you teach a kid to like reading, they’re set. You get a kid who likes to read on his own, shit, you’ve done your job.”—Hunter S. Thompson (via idratherlivebythesea)
I hadn’t been since Iron Man II. And of course there were assholes just yap, yap, yapping the entire film. So again I’m taking an exodus from the theater until they OK murder in the theater. Seriously I will NEVER understand why people just HAVE to be assholes. I also don’t understand why I would’ve got in trouble had I beat them to death. But whatever. I’ll just stay at home and watch Netflix.
