How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is!

Why are you so expensive? My nephew has Photoshop—I can just get him to do it.

Does your nephew have Microsoft Word?

Ljósið by Ólafur Arnalds

Never heard of

Two young, cute and apparently well-educated American tourists are strolling down the Paris underground when the train announces we are entering Austerlitz station
Girl1:
what did he say? Austerlitz?!?! Seems to me like he said Auschwitz
Girl2:
Auschwitz?!?! What is it?
Girl1:
don't you know what Auschwitz is?
Girl2:
no...never heard of...
me:
Are we doomed to forget and leave dumb idiots rule our society?
