The Cigarette Smoking Man

"Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or an English toffee. But they're gone too fast and the taste is... fleeting. So, you  end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. And if you're desperate enough to eat those, all you got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers..." - From the X-Files

Amal Clooney and the Armenian Genocide

Amal is everything. I'd like to note how amazing it is that Kim Kardashian has been a celebrity for however long she has been and has half-heartedly (or assedly- pun intended) mentioned the Armenian Genocide (or the denial of) but to no avail (as in heeding mainstream public recognition).
And IN swoops/glides/floats Amal Clooney to layeth the smackdown on the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
Learn more about it by reading the The Armenite article and watch her eloquence and all that is her goddessness emanate in this 6 minute clip (ok I'llstop). ‪#‎genocide‬ ‪#‎armeniangenocide‬ ‪#‎amal‬ ‪#‎is‬ ‪#‎magical‬
From the Armenite article: "Now, rather than being relegated to the annals of media blips and nonstarters, the Perincek v. Switzerland case has generated widespread media coverage about the Armenian Genocide and its denial from the most unlikely sources including BuzzFeed, Cosmpolitan, People, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, and even from ribald celebrity gossip blog Perez Hilton. When we last checked, the BuzzFeed article alone had been viewed almost 200,000 times."
