We hear “do what you love” so often from those few people who it did work for, for whom the stars aligned, and from them it sounds like good advice. They’re successful, aren’t they? If we follow their advice, we’ll be successful, too! And a crow will turn white as swan if only it lives in a pond and eats weeds.

We rarely hear the advice of the person who did what they loved and stayed poor or was horribly injured for it. Professional gamblers, stuntmen, washed up cartoonists like myself: we don’t give speeches at corporate events. We aren’t paid to go to the World Domination Summit and make people feel bad. We don’t land book deals or speak on Good Morning America.

Advice is just something we would have told our younger selves. But we are all different with different life expectations and abilities. A globetrotting heir to a vast fortune will have a much easier time finding and doing what they love than a young mother in the rust belt with three jobs.

So you can’t like Cersei Lannister as a character because she’s an evil bitch, but it’s okay to love Loki and Walter White?

“I was beat/spanked/paddled and I turned out fine! See?”

I would argue that you did not turn out fine; you turned into someone who thinks it’s okay to hit a defenseless child when she does something wrong because you have power over someone smaller than you.

Not to mention, what does spanking actually teach kids? It teaches kids that they can and should physically hit others when others do something that they don’t like. I’ve taken care of children since I was fourteen, and I’ve seen parents hit their kids for hitting their sibling or a peer. In what world does that make sense?

in Canada they don’t pronounce Z as "zee"

they pronounce it as "zed" and that is crazy to me

it sounds like they made a typo when they invented it

They do that everywhere in the world that’s not America. We do that here in the UK too.
America is weird man.
