Here are two boops

I think the duality of boop is a load of boop, but I figured I would at least show two of the many boops that I take on whatever it is that graces these boops.

BOOP BOOP! Story Time! BOOP!
When I was in high school there was this kid who had ADHD, but his parents kept him so overmedicated on everything that he was sometimes mistaken for a mentally challenged individual. We were in band together and when the band director was talking, this kid would stare off into space and often start drooling. When the band director would ask him if he was paying attention, he would straighten up and shout, "Boop, boop! Yes, Mr. *name redacted*!" And it was often hilarious because of the amount of drool that he had on his chin that would go flying.

This blog is in memory of his antics.

He's not dead or anything, I just think it's hilarious and like to remember that it happened.

"You’re an awful person!" Says my friend Graham while I pause to take a selfie #sorryboutit #London #towerbridge #damnineedtoshave (at Tower Bridge)

Flying first class from Beijing to Helsinki. Some kind of error, but I will not be correcting anyone #shh #Beijing #Helsinki (at Helsinki, Finland)

Parting is such sweet sorrow! The best part of the summer camp are the new friendships forged. #Tsinghua #Beijing #teacherrealness (at Tsinghua University)

Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level. 

This is basic economic fact.

A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity. 

And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…

And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.

Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs). 

But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.

We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.

"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."

"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

That’s true. We’ve never changed the way operating procedures have been done ever in the history of science or medicine. In fact, my doctor won’t do anything other than blood-letting when I see him. Sure, I may have a cold, but tradition is more important than innovation

It is this one. Occasionally, the original text/pic gets deleted and replaced with a gif of your OTP or that actor in that one show or a quote from that thing you like. But it’s not them. It never was them. It has always been, and always will be, a lie.

And now it’s a sick picture of a T Rex.

herearetwoboops said: OMG, he totally looks like him!

I KNOW! It really skeeved me out. You know he is in BJ right now? Have you seen him? If so, you know nothing. NOTHING I SAY! JW doesn’t know a single thing (he thinks there was an embarrassing unrequited crush on my side and that’s all) so really, you know nothing.

Dear Tumblr: Let’s keep this secret between you and me. Most people in my life have no idea that any of that happened. Especially the people Nanjing and I used to work with who would judge and make it their business so fast. The fallout would be bad. (And don’t get started on the “it’s not their business” because in the professional world it is. End of story.)

After typing that reply, I went upstairs to get something from a colleague and saw him in a room with other teachers drinking and then proceeded to have a couple of beers with RS and JW.
