"Biology’s cruel joke goes something like this: As a teenage body goes through puberty, its circadian rhythm essentially shifts three hours backward. Suddenly, going to bed at nine or ten o’clock at night isn’t just a drag, but close to a biological impossibility. Studies of teenagers around the globe have found that adolescent brains do not start releasing melatonin until around eleven o’clock at night and keep pumping out the hormone well past sunrise. Adults, meanwhile, have little-to-no melatonin in their bodies when they wake up. With all that melatonin surging through their bloodstream, teenagers who are forced to be awake before eight in the morning are often barely alert and want nothing more than to give in to their body’s demands and fall back asleep. Because of the shift in their circadian rhythm, asking a teenager to perform well in a classroom during the early morning is like asking him or her to fly across the country and instantly adjust to the new time zone — and then do the same thing every night, for four years."

This is why you have every right to be tired.

Actually, I think the kid is playing Minecraft. Which is essentially digital Legos.

Two generations of creative people, just different methods of expression. Let’s not shit on the digital age as much, ‘eh?

You know what’s great about Minecraft?

You don’t get lacerations from stepping on it.

You know what’s great about legos?

Your shit doesn’t get blown up because a green penis snuck up on you.

when boys have sleepovers do they sleep in the same bed like girls do or do the rules of no homo include sharing beds

girls always share beds. and covers and clothes and food and personal space. sometimes even bathrooms

Girls share everything.

Now. I don’t work a small local retail store. But something like this happened to me. A customer wanted a shirt that was displayed in a graphic for our back to school stuff. I told him we no longer had it. ‘How can you not have it when it’s up there?’ We did have it now we don’t anymore ‘Cant believe you don’t have any more. That’s the coolest shirt I’ve ever seen. Can’t you order me one?’ We can’t order anything you can check online. There’s more that happened but I just couldn’t anymore. I showed him where is might be and walked away. I couldn’t continue explaining how store don’t get infinite supplies of things. And listening to him act as if I just did him the greatest disservice ever cause we didn’t have a shirt.
