Americans! Are you feeling ridiculously patriotic after electing or not electing the best candidate? Want to look ridiculous and maybe patriotic too? Maybe you should get these USA sunglasses, they are unisex apparently and designed by Jeremy Scott for Linda Farrow (Who apparently do lots of sunglasses…)
They fold up! As if wearing these glasses won’t make you look like enough of an idiot!
You can buy these on the UK shop! They are £191! Oh wait they are out of stock… Never mind…
I was moaning about US politics and how rubbish their election system seems from the outside with people queuing for hours on in just to exercise their right to democracy that they are so proud of, and the breaking up of areas so that it’s actually difficult for certain minorities to vote (This is apparently called Gerrymandering), when @GladleyNet pointed out to me that Arizona had printed election material with the wrong date on it.
I thought she had the story wrong, as I remembered 8 years ago the outrage people exhibited when they had misinterpreted an article in the Onion about republicans urging minorities to vote on the wrong date, I even remember sharing the article with an American friend on Yahoo! Chat! (Wow that brings back memories) with the intention of getting a laugh out of it, she thought it was a serious article.
This time it seems that life is imitating art, there are actually election leaflets out there urging minorities to vote on the wrong day, whether this is intentional or not it unclear, it’s certainly a horrible thing to happen, it is only 50 cards of however many were handed out so it’s not likely to have much effect and the outrage at this story surfacing will probably make even more people vote.
I posted the above quote to Facebook because I was annoyed at the number of people that had put up complete and utter crap superimposed on a pretty picture in the interest of looking or feeling deep and meaningful and someone replied with that image. Fair play to them but my point still stands.
It’s not profound! It just isn’t, I hate the practice, it’s all over the internets clogging up the tubes! Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest all of them have people guilty of this. I want to rant about this but it annoys me so much I actually can’t be bothered expressing the vehement hatred I have for this practice. So I’m just going to shut up and let you get along with your day…
