This year, Chris Pratt was awarded the MTV Movie & TV Award Generation Award is meant for the person who best represented our generation in the past year. What encompasses "our generation," who knows. But if Pratt's message was for millennials, than it was perfect. He balanced humor and seriousness, and he even squeezed in some religious messaging. Even if you're not a religious person––even if you don't like religion, for that matter––you'll res...

A Beautiful poem, and all too applicable

Home

by Warsan Shire (British-Somali poet)

no one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark.

you only run for the border
when you see the whole city
running as well.

your neighbours running faster
than you, the boy you went to school with
who kissed you dizzy behind
the old tin factory is
holding a gun bigger than his body,
you only leave home
when home won't let you stay.

no one would leave home unless home
chased you, fire under feet,
hot blood in your belly.

it's not something you ever thought about
doing, and so when you did -
you carried the anthem under your breath,
waiting until the airport toilet
to tear up the passport and swallow,
each mouthful of paper making it clear that
you would not be going back.

you have to understand,
no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land.

who would choose to spend days
and nights in the stomach of a truck
unless the miles travelled
meant something more than journey.

no one would choose to crawl under fences,
be beaten until your shadow leaves you,
raped, then drowned, forced to the bottom of
the boat because you are darker, be sold,
starved, shot at the border like a sick animal,
be pitied, lose your name, lose your family,
make a refugee camp a home for a year or two or ten,
stripped and searched, find prison everywhere
and if you survive and you are greeted on the other side
with go home blacks, refugees
dirty immigrants, asylum seekers
sucking our country dry of milk,
dark, with their hands out
smell strange, savage -
look what they've done to their own countries,
what will they do to ours?

the dirty looks in the street
softer than a limb torn off,
the indignity of everyday life
more tender than fourteen men who
look like your father, between
your legs, insults easier to swallow
than rubble, than your child's body
in pieces - for now, forget about pride
your survival is more important.

i want to go home, but home is the mouth of a shark
home is the barrel of the gun
and no one would leave home
unless home chased you to the shore
unless home tells you to
leave what you could not behind,
even if it was human.

no one leaves home until home
is a damp voice in your ear saying
leave, run now, i don't know what
i've become.

but i know that anywhere
is safer than here.

Disney World is in the Florida, and Florida is basically one big swamp. And swamps are giant mosquito breeding grounds.

This video explains the incredible lengths that Disney World goes to to ensure they don't have a mosquito problem, including lots of spraying, lab tests, and an army of chicken guards.

Why do office chairs cost so much money? - Alltop Viral

Shopping for office chairs is like walking a weird ergonomic gauntlet. Either you're spending a ton of money, enough to break the bank, or you're spending so little money that you just know that you are buying a lemon. So do you sacrifice some retirement or do you risk a broken coccyx? This video explains why the expensive chairs are so expensive and, spoiler alert, you get what you pay for so don't pinch pennies.

In the same way that unburdening your life allows its simple pleasures to sparkle even more brightly, a frame that is simple in its subject and composition can yield infinite power.
