In the Flesh Appreciation Week (Day Seven: Best Kieren Walker Moment)

"Where did you want to be buried?""I wanted to be cremated.""That… didn’t happen, obviously.""Yeah… no shit."

Every scene is the best Kieren Walker scene, okay? Every single one. That being said, I’m choosing the scene that sold the entire rest of the show to me when I saw the gifs of it.
This scene, to me, was a perfect treasure. I love sass. I love it so fucking much, and here’s this zombie kid with enough sass to knock an elephant on its ass. I hold dear every single time Kieren is so fucking done with something that he lets off steam in the form of dry wit.
And this scene, above all others, because the subject matter is the absolute most touchy, painful of subjects for Kieren. He wanted to be cremated. He took his own life and he wanted to be burned up so he could literally just disappear, so that he wouldn’t have to face the idea of an eternity in a small, dark box because he was scared of enclosed spaces while alive.
Then not only did his parents not listen to him one last time, but he had the misfortune to be brought back to fucking life in that tiny, dark box. He woke up in a feral state during which time gentle, kind Kieren Walker brutally murdered and ate people. And when he finally did get his mind back, it’s to return to the world still without Rick and having to hide himself even worse than the first time he was alive.
If they had just cremated him, none of this would have happened.
If they had just cremated him, he would have just disappeared.
"That… didn’t happen, obviously."
No shit, he says.

Victor White suicide ruling leads to public scrutiny

OK. I KNOW YOU ARE ALL WORRIED ABOUT FERGUSON BUT CAN YOU FOR A SECOND LOOK AT THIS VICTOR WHITE CASE?

NOTHING ADDS UP.

APPARENTLY AFTER BEING SEARCHED TWICE (while handcuffed) HE PRODUCED A GUN AT THE POLICE STATION AND SHOT HIMSELF. HIS DEATH HAS BEEN RULED A SUICIDE.

YOU NEED TO SPREAD THIS TUMBLR. BECAUSE THIS IS BULLSHIT AND THE COPS ARE COVERING IT UP.

I love that this is getting attention again, considering it’s like 30 minutes from where I live.

It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.

but why would we ever remove the wisest of our teeth

Because like most wise things, they can sometimes cause us deep and abiding pain.
