About
I’m 22 years old and a graduate of the University of Georgia in history and political science. I recently finished my senior thesis with a research grant from the Center of Undergraduate Research Opportunities on Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Counter-Enlightenment thought. I won the 2013 Pi Sigma Alpha essay contest in UGA’s School of Public and International Affairs on the question of whether American culture tends to emphasize being an individual over being a citizen. The essay can be read here.

I am attending the Duke University School of Law. I will graduate with a Juris Doctor in 2017.

Fluttershy is my favorite pony.

I find Catelyn Stark from Game of Thrones inexplicably attractive:



I’m also a fan of the Duchess of Cambridge.

My favorite movie score is from How to Train Your Dragon:



Political drama is, unsurprisingly, one of my favorite movie genres. Some of my favorite movies include Lincoln, Charlie Wilson’s War, Amazing Grace (2006), and The King’s Speech.

I think everyone should see the final Twilight movie (I went with my girlfriend -- she watches it for the lulz too) just to hear Kristen Stewart’s vampire sex talk. It’s side-splittingly hilarious.

I think Wreck-It Ralph deserved the Oscar for best animated film over Brave -- by a lot.

Even so, I love that Brave introduced me to Julie Fowlis. I want to use this song as a lullaby for future children -- it’s fantastic:



I’ll add more as I think of it, but you can also ask random questions and I may pick a few to field.

I tried scan the QR code.

It gave me the software equivalent of hieroglyphs.

Commented on Lets Get Moving

You’re so bitter about Shining Armor that you make guzzling a pot of stale black coffee sound sweet by comparison.

Excuse me while I go rinse my mouth out:

Commented on Cultural Appropriation

I have previously heard SJWs complain that western nations are not melting pots and do not incorporate immigrants and their cultures properly. Then they complain when that happens as if it’s some sort of cultural crime.

Commented on Downfall

And today, Germany’s doing pretty swell relative to the rest of the continent. Economically prosperous, diplomatically powerful, not invading France -- it’s come a long way.

Commented on An Honest Sleeptalk

A show in which the standard authorities are completely competent and solve everything wouldn’t be much of a show unless it’s a crime drama.

This, however, is a children’s show, which normally involves a greater suspension of disbelief by the viewers, permitting more inconsistencies without explanation.

At the end of the day, it’s a show about candy-colored talking ponies that save the day with the Magic of Friendship -- not exactly a situation warranting criticism of the fact that the protagonists are permitted to be the heroes rather than the “official law enforcement.”

Commented on Revenge Porn

Consider the following:
1. Posting explicit pictures of others without their consent, even if they voluntarily give you those pictures, is a crime in many states (if not all -- the rest will likely follow in due course).
2. This is sometimes classified as a sexual offense -- i.e., you will be labeled a sex offender in some places.
3. Unless your ex was cheating on you, there’s a high probability she can prove only you had access to those pictures.
4. Thus, if those pictures get out, there’s a high probability that prosecutors will be able to prove -- especially with computer forensics -- that you caused these pictures to be leaked to others without your ex’s consent.

And, ladies and gentlemen…

is how you get labeled a sex offender. And be in jail.

Commented on girls of hyrule warriors

I wonder what Hyrule’s legal system even is. They have a monarchy, and they have guards, but they appear to have no courts of justice or legal codexes. Just a lot of mystic wobbly-woo that turns out to be a prophecy of some sort each time.

Clock Town was the closest thing to a functioning state apparatus with a mayor who solves local disputes and issues orders.

Sorry, we were talking about loli Agitha, right? Yeah, I will pass.

Well, at least he properly associated the flag with a piece of geography -- even if he blew the name.

I’m just surprised ’Mericaball knows geography well enough to know where Argentina is in relation to Brazil.
