when I was studying Greek I would get frustrated and annoyed because often, at the beginning of a sentence or clause — or just scattered haphazardly throughout — there would be three or four “particles” with no specific meaning. the literal translation might be “so thus and”, but of course you couldn’t put that down. they were just placeholder words, colloquial linguistic padding.
now, of course, I realize that I start sentences with “okay but like”.
you can sing the praises of the Greeks all you want, but the fact is, Plato wrote with all the elegance and grace of an off-the-cuff tumblr post.
seriously though like let’s not romanticize the past like we do okay we preseverve personal manuscripts as these MAJESTIC RELICS of the past and it’s like no????? half the shit in manuscripts is so fucking dumb hilarious but dumb it’s like preserving the notes i take in class and trying to discern anything serious from them we even do this with things as recent as shakespeare YOU’D THINK after catullus we would learn that humanity has always found fart jokes funny that EVERYONE draws dicks in their notes that AT NO POINT IN HISTORY have we been refined and mature and like I LOVE IT but let’s ADMIT THAT THAT’S THE CASE (via alfonselric)
I love you Phillip Morris, 2009
"Dean, it’s over. It’s over."
Castiel will finally interact with Dean’s demonic side in this week’s outing. “It’s a pretty strenuous meeting,” Ackles previews. “Dean is still not quite Dean, and Cas is having to, unfortunately, use some powers he would rather not have to use against Dean.”
Even though the angel is facing his own problems and is low on grace, “Castiel is hellbent on ridding Dean of his demon and willing to do anything, no holds barred, to make sure he’s no longer a demon,” Misha Collins says, adding that their face-to-face is “a little touchy.”
THE MOMENT WHEN DEAN REALIZES THAT CAS IS GONNA LEAVE HIM.
AND HE STARTS SORTING THROUGH THE STUFF ON THAT EMPTY SIDE OF THE BED LIKE, “NO CAS I CAN BE LESS SCREWED UP PLEASE DON’T GO YOU LOOK GREAT IT’S GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE.”
SOMEONE HOLD ME.
