Diogenes was the shit. He was easily one of the best philosophers ever. He made himself the least wealthy person, hence living in a “Barrel”. He also, upon seeing a child drinking from a river with his hands, smashed his only wooden bowl claiming to be “Bested by a child”. He did public stunts to make a point towards customs and norms including eating in the marketplace in Athens which was generally not acceptable. When Plato described humans as “Featherless Bipeds” he plucked a chicken and brought it to him, saying “here’s your man”. Plato changed that description to “Featherless bipeds with arms”.
And here’s where it gets real.
Diogenes the Cynic became well known all over. In fact, Alexander the great, the one man who could have anyone killed just because, went out of his way to find him. Upon meeting Diogenes, whom was laying on the ground, he said something to the extent of “Ah, the great Diogenes! Is there anything that I, Alexander the Great, can do you?”. Diogenes’ response was a crude “Yes, Get out of my sunlight.”
But, however, Alexander came back another time, to find Diogenes sifting through a pile of bones. Alex inquired “Diogenes, what are you doing sifting through that pile of bones?” Diogenes the Cynic responded “I’m trying to distinguish between the bones of your father, and that of a slave. I cannot tell the difference.” An insult that any man would want the other beheaded for indeed. But no, not Alexander.
Alexander went on to later say that if he were not Alexander the Great, he would wish to be Diogenes.
Dude’s a motherfuckingbadass.

- a strange buzzing noise
- alien, I think
- an insurmountable feeling of dread

My image has been stolen and being used on Facebook diet ads for a company called Venus Factor. These ads are running throughout Facebook from more sources that I can report and have removed. My coworkers, friends and family are seeing these ads pop up. The company won’t help me on Facebook and told me to email them more, I already emailed them twice. So let’s send them some email!
Tell them why we won’t stand to have our image stolen for the profit of diet companies.
Fatties roll out!
This is so disgusting. Please email this company.
This is disgusting and beyond wrong. Send some emails, make sure they hear that we WILL NOT tolerate this kind of behavior!
Companies ARE NOT allowed to use images of fat people without their consent FOR ANY REASON. THIS IS WRONG, AND THEY MUST BE TOLD SO.

Because you don’t want to sound neolithic when you’re throwing a temper tantrum.
Because everyone should have this on their blog
useful for class
In my theater class last year, my teacher gave us a chart similar to this and we had to use at least three of the insults in an angry letter so my friend and I wrote letters as Thor and Loki (respectively) to the other.
My drama teacher gave these out one time and he learned to never do that again
