“I think as humans we fail on purpose. Because we’re exhausted. Because we know that if we succeed, the work will never end. We know what it will take to maintain that success and that though alone makes us tired. So we put in just enough effort to say, “well, I tried.” We’re secretly relieved that we haven’t succeeded but we don’t always acknowledge out intentions for failure.”—Jared Thomas (via cosmic-doll)
“Criminals look at identity theft and say only 1 in 700 criminals gets convicted of it. And they look at check forgery and they know that for every 1,400 forgers arrested, only about 123 get convicted and about 26 go to jail. So the rewards are great, but the risks are very slim. So that’s one of the reasons that make it very popular.”—Frank Abagnale (via kushandwizdom)
“I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.”—Roald Dahl (via kushandwizdom)
That fact still surprises me;
When I find my mind conjuring your image after weeks of forgetting,
I feel nothing in my chest
And my mind quickly skips to someone else, somewhere else, sometime in the future.
Then the feeling is in my stomach,
But this time it’s an optimism -
Reaching, yearning for what is to come.
I have found a way to live without you.
I have found proof that pain is not permanent.
I have found out how good I am at surviving.
“I love him whose soul squanders itself, who wants no thanks and returns none: for he always gives away and does not want to preserve himself.”—Friedrich Nietzsche, from Thus Spoke Zarathustra (via violentwavesofemotion)
“Don’t do that. Don’t skip stages in your life. You’re 19, kiss a few boys and wear your heart on your sleeve. There will come a time when you’re 39 and stuck in a suit, wondering why the hell you were so eager to grow up in the first place.”—note to self (via safeslut)
3D Audio of Lying Is The Most Fun… by Panic! At The Disco (Requested)
What is 3D sound?
3D audio effects are a group of sound effects that manipulate the sound produced by stereo speakers, surround-sound speakers, speaker-arrays, or headphones. This frequently involves the virtual placement of sound sources anywhere in three-dimensional space, including behind, above or below the listener.
