A short comic I have been mulling over for a while and finally did this weekend. Enjoy!
A little bit early (sorry) but I’m gonna be really busy these last two weeks.
The forecast says that there is chances of snow tomorrow, so Yey!
Finally, the 610 Green Thumb extended promo!!!
best thing I’ve ever read

My mother told me a wise thing.
If you don’t offend someone, you’re not doing your job.
Because not everyone is going to agree with you, and using energy to try to make it that way is a waste.
It’s energy you could be using to create something new, to prove a point, to fight for a cause you believe in.
So don’t worry all the time about never offending anyone. It’s impossible. It will happen no matter what you do. Everyone thinks differently, has different opinions; and none are worth more than others.
So why should you apologize for having one?
Because of this, I never try to not offend, in fact, it might be said that i strive to offend at least one in a crowd. Because if someone is offended, you know they care; and they know that you care.
That way, you know that what you are saying, or doing, makes a difference. It will hopefully encourage people to think about things in different ways, open up new doors.
No one ever got anywhere in this world, without offending anyone.
So I’m done saying ‘I don’t mean to offend’. if you’re offended, I’m proud. It means that i’m making my opinions heard, That i have something worth saying.
On another note, this brings up a parallel, but not identical point. Saying “no offence, but…” is simply an excuse to be cruel to someone’s face, and not let them say anything about it. If i’m going to be cruel, i want them to be able to tell me what they think of me.

Louis CK on our culture on dating
Okay, tumblr, I need your help. I’ve seen things like this get thousands and thousands of notes, and I really think that this is a cause worth sharing.
This couple is an elderly couple that live in my small town in Canada’s smallest province. They both suffer from dementia and for the last 55 years, they’ve sent out Christmas cards to everyone in their neighbourhood. They’re both in a home now, and their son is doing a little project. The woman, Bev, her favourite movie is A Miracle On 34th Street, and she especially loves the part where the christmas cards come in by the hundreds. Her son is trying to get that to happen for her.
It would make this lady’s Christmas to get the hundreds of Christmas cards from all over the world. I think we owe it to this kind soul to come together and give her a Christmas miracle. If you would like to send a Christmas card, their information is;
Don and Bev Enman, C/O Summerset Manor
15 Frank Mellish Street
Summerside, P.E.I. Canada
