Glass Blower: Sculpting A Horse From Molten Glass


#this bitch just said let there be horse and there was

Well, I moved into college on Sunday. Classes don’t start until the 25th but we have to be here this entire week anyways. We’re doing some type of “orientation” thing.

Anyways, I’m pretty sad. I haven’t made any friends really. I just kinda stay in my dorm all day with nothing to do and not even a roommate to talk to (I know I have one, but she hasn’t moved in).

IDK. It takes me a while to make friends and open up and by the time I usually do open up, they’ve usually have lost interest in me because of how long it takes for me to ACTUALLY be myself around anybody.

So for now, I suffer a bit. I think it will be better when I start classes and join a few clubs because then I’ll be around people I see frequently, which is the best way for me to meet friends.

Being introverted sucks and I hate it. I’d probably feel a lot better in general if I was an extrovert.

[shown above] Ruhal Ahmed, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, in an interview in which he discusses Omar Khadr. Ahmed stammers,

“I think he was a strong kid.

I think, you know, being much older, much older than him, I did feel that, sometimes, I needed to look out for him and I think so did the other prisoners around him feel the same. But obviously, being in Guantanamo, you can’t really look out for one another.

Uh, it’s, it’s, it’s difficult you know, today I’m here, and I’m, I’m thinking of, thinking of him and he’s still in prison and he’s still, still a kid. I don’t know really what I would say to him. It doesn’t seem, it doesn’t seem fair that he’s still there and, and I’m here.”

Khadr, a Canadian, was taken into US custody at the age of fifteen, tortured and refused medical attention because he wouldn’t attest to being a member of Al Qaeda, even though he was shot three times in the chest and had shrapnel embedded in his eyes and right shoulder. As a result, Khadr’s left eye is now permanently blind, the vision in his right eye is deteriorating, he develops severe pain in his right shoulder when the temperature drops, and he suffers from extreme nightmares.

Ahmed, who was imprisoned in the cell next to him for some time, reported that Khadr would return from interrogations (where he would be tortured) crying and would huddle in a corner of his cell with his blanket over his head.

Shafiq Rasul, another former Guantanamo Bay detainee, stated that although Khadr was forced to mature due to his harsh treatment and torture, he still had the mentality of a child. Guantanamo Bay’s Muslim chaplain James Yee confirmed this by reporting that Khadr had been given a Mickey Mouse book in a surprising act of kindness by one of his interrogators, and that he slept with it clutched to his (injured) chest. Muneer Ahmad, one of Khadr’s first attorneys, reported that at their first meeting at Guantanamo, Khadr asked for nothing other than colouring books, car magazines and pictures of big animals and played with the attorney’s ink pens and digital watch.

Khadr has been incarcerated at Guantanamo Bay since 2002, and is now 27 years old.

More heartbreaking news: While Khadr is now out of Guantanamo and in a Canadian maximum security prison (which is not much better), he is currently being sued by a US soldier and the wife of a US soldier who was killed while arresting/torturing Khadr. These people are suing him for fifty million dollars because, while carrying out an attack against Khadr as child, they were injured.

Please keep Khadr and all of the other victims of this torture in your hearts

One of a few repulsive and sad anecdotes I have for people who support Guantanamo operations


College is viewed as a necessity, yet priced as a luxury.
