G R E E N D A L E   S E V E N  Appreciation  Week(s) | Day Six
↳ Favourite Speech

J: You know what makes humans different to other animals?
T: Feet.
P: No, come on, bears have feet

J: We are the only species on Earth that observe “Shark Week”. Sharks don’t even observe “Shark Week” but we do. For the same reason I can pick this pencil, tell you its name is Steve and go like this (breaks pencil) and part of you dies just a little bit on the inside because people can connect with anything. We can sympathize with a pencil, we can forgive a shark, and we can give Ben Affleck an academy award for screen writing. People can find the good in just about anything but themselves. Look at me, it’s clear to all of you that I am awesome but I could never admit that because that would make me an ass. But what I can do is see what makes Annie awesome. She’s driven. We need driven people or the lights go out and the ice cream melts. And Pierce, we need guys like Pierce, this guy has wisdom to offer… We should listen to him sometime, we wouldn’t regret it. And Shirley, Shirley has earned our respect, not as a wife, not as a mother, but as a woman. And don’t test her on that because that thing about the jukebox was way too specific to be improvised. And Troy, who cares if Troy thinks he’s all that. Maybe he is. Do you think astronauts go to the moon because they hate oxygen? No. They’re trying to impress their high schools prom king. And Abed, Abed’s a shaman. You ask him to pass the salt and he gives you a bowl of soup, because you know what? Soup is better. Abed is better. You are all better than you think you are, you are just designed not to believe it when you hear it from yourself. I want you to look at the person to your left… Sorry look at the person sitting next to you. I want you to extend to that person the same compassion that you extend for sharks, pencils, and Ben Affleck. I want you to say to that person I forgive you.

Everyone but Pierce: I forgive you.
P: Little twerp…
J: Pierce I’d like you to say “I forgive you”
P: [Mumbling] I forgive you.
J: You’ve just stopped being a study group. You’ve now become something unstoppable. I hereby pronounce you a COMMUNITY.

I LOVE Abed trying to put Steve back together…

What I love about social justice white people

sage-kun:

juxtapiration:

is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.

He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.

Confused husky pup

He’s not expressing confusion, he’s tilting his head for better sound localization. While having an ear on each side of the head is good for lateral echolocation, tilting the head so that the ears are offset gives it vertical depth.

Oh my gosh, that explains why some dogs put their head to one side when you talk to them. They’re not confused, they’re trying to listen to us better. Awww.
