"It is really ashamed of its own actions, and shuns those whom it has punished, as people shun a creditor whose debt they cannot pay, or one on whom they have inflicted an irreparable, an irremediable wrong."

"Society takes upon itself the right to inflict appalling punishment on the individual, but it also has the supreme vice of shallowness, and fails to realise what it has done. When the man’s punishment is over, it leaves him to himself; that is to say, it abandons him at the very moment when its highest duty towards him begins."

"Many men on their release carry their prison about with them into the air, and hide it as a secret disgrace in their hearts, and at length, like poor poisoned things, creep into some hole and die. It is wretched that they should have to do so, and it is wrong, terribly wrong, of society that it should force them to do so."

"Where there is sorrow there is holy ground. Some day people will realise what that means. They will know nothing of life till they do."

asking for financial help, urgent 

Hey folks, the DWP have reduced our benefits again, and we have less than £30 to last the next three weeks. So if you'd like to help a trans disabled couple survive, please boost and consider donating if you can. Thank you! ko-fi.com/A231B07

"I dunno, I mean, trapping and burning tormented souls seems a bit morally fucked."

"But on the other hand, they're probably tories."

if you've ever gone down on someone with a tiny clit you know the struggle of trying to contain a greased pig during an earthquake

being forced to speak to someone on the phone to get paid. this is abuse

on the verge of spending £300. I feel like vomiting

It seems like a really good deal (as in, a 'good enough' PC for a really good price) and I think - i *think* - I could even swap out the graphics card for my own one and sell it on to make it affordable

I have stumbled across a PC that I might be able to actually afford. Could someone who knows PC hardware stuff advise pls

my mum has a rescue dog whose abusers would beat him when he growled. The result is that he doesn't know how to communicate that he feels threatened or angry and he just snaps without warning if you haven't spent a long time learning to read him.

watching a video of a dog growling for a full minute and the idiot just keeps getting closer and closer and then acts shocked when the dog goes for them.

I have never owned a chair in my life. I bought a desk once. A very nice one indeed in fact, at the time the most expensive thing Id ever bought (its still #2). But that was for someone else. And if I ever had owned a chair or table I'd only have had to leave them behind at some point. Poverty and adhd and chronic illness: the real power trio

both side panels off the PC, fans physically snapped off, single speaker upside down, headset sellotaped back together with one of the cables pulled out so the mic stops doing that thing, two keyboards two mice on my lap, laptop missing an N and screen only usable if I wedge a wooden lid into the hinge. For someone who writes about pc games for a living my pc is really fucked up

none of this would be happening if those bastards had just bought me a new pc like I asked for. bastards

Show thread

it has a thermometer thing on a wire. Could that somehow be forcing it to switch off? I don't see how, it's not touching anything that might trigger a panic. I am scared to experiment because instant shutdowns are not good and if I lose this PC I am extremely extremely fucked
