The place where you put all the shit you think you might need someday but can't work out where it should really go.

Hypocrisy

So fucking powerful.

can’t get over this

This reminds me of when they have professional classical performers at a train station and highlight the people ignoring the music as somehow meaningful.

The people that stopped when the guy has a Fuck The Poor sign aren’t hypocrites. Neither are the ones that didn’t stop when he had the Help The Poor sign.  

Talking to someone that is saying Fuck The Poor is important. Who knows what the people that walk past the Help The Poor sign do to help?
