Alaska Cruise Glacier Differences

College Fjord - near Prince William Sound, can be done from Anchorage
Glacier Bay - Classic must see, but similar to College Fjord
Hubbard Glacier - huge ass glacier, bigger than glacier bay, but can't get as close
Tracy Arm Fjord, aka Sawyer - Fjord, near Juneau

Glacier Bay and College Fjords are similar

Pro tip:
Norwegian does Glacier Bay and Hubbard on the northbound itinerary only, and Princess only do both on the southbound itineraries.

I am racist

Well, partly, because I partially fit the definition of racist: a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

I don't believe one race is superior to another in all areas of life, but only some areas. Black people are better at sports. Asians are better at math.

Just as maybe there is a gene for homosexuality, maybe there's a gene for laziness: Being lazy could be genetic say scientists
Laziness then probably leads to less education, more poverty, and therefore, more crime. Heck, maybe there's a gene for violent crime: Two genes linked with violent crime - BBC News

Maybe, just maybe, it’s in black and latino genes to be more predispositioned towards laziness or crime, whereas it’s in the asians genes to be more predispositioned to be passive, silent, short, have smaller pensises, and unable to get pussy, but also work hard, and not commit violent crimes. What's worse? Being un-fuckable, or being lazy? (Fuck, as of writing this, I think I'm both.)
Yes, I'm saying AllLivesMatter in light of BlackLivesMatter because black people do commit more crimes and a police officer is more likely to die when the suspect is black as opposed of any other race: FactCheck: do black Americans commit more crime?
Yes, I'm complaining and whining about being asian and short and single all my life,
Yes, I know I need to stop whining about it,
No, I'm not going into the streets to protest about why women won't date me,
True, my pain is nothing compared to that of a bullet wound or losing a loved one,
But yes, it is pain nonetheless,
No, I'm not giving up and going into a forest to cut off my penis and commit seppuku just because I can't get laid: Don't Kill Yourself Because You Can't Get A Girlfriend

I'm going to work my ass off to become a better me, and fight whatever predisposition my genes gave me that I don't like. I'm going to work twice as hard to be successful.

And black people need to do the same to get out of poverty. And sometimes that hard work does come in the form of protesting to change the system. Because yes, the system is fucked up. The entire system. It seems like white people got the best genes and they were able to imperialize and conquer and enslave the entire world (and they're still doing it), but they've kinda stopped, so there's hope. But they also have it bad because they're prone to sunburn and skin cancer. And all that just means we have to work harder.
In the end, we all have to work to better ourselves.
Unless you have the lazy gene. Then you just have to work extra hard.

Life is fucking unfair. For everyone.

What I learned today from googling about Sunnis vs Shiites

  • Sunnis
    • After Prophet Muhammad died, Sunnis wanted to vote for successor
    • Place their hands on their stomachs when they pray
    • Account for 85% of the world's muslims
    • "Centralized" in Saudi Arabia

  • Shiites (Shia = Noun, Shiite = Adjective)
    • After Prophet Muhammad died, Shiites wanted to follow bloodline
    • Place their hands at their sides when they pray
    • Account for 15% of the world's muslims
    • "Centralized" in Iran
  • There are Sunni vs Shiite mosques, but it is hard to tell visually
  • ISIS is Sunni
  • Saudi Arabia has a form of Sunni called Wahhabism that is very radical

  • Some good links:
