Senator Kirsten Gillibrand on The Daily Show.

My senator. I voted for her. I will vote for her again (barring any major bullshit).

She just had a book come out, and she’s doing a signing for my local indie bookstore on the 27th. I’m still pondering whether I want to go.

This country is really absurd sometimes…

But we know we love it, though.

that’s why when I say “sorry” to ppl in the states they always dismiss my display of empathy saying “why are you saying sorry? it’s not your fault.” of course it’s not my fault! I want to help u feel bettah gawddd



"Sorry" means something different in Canada than it does in other places.
In Canada, if something bad happens and you say sorry, it means “I acknowledge that you have been inconvenienced or otherwise harmed, and I am expressing sympathy. I’d prefer it if the bad thing had not happened.”
We apologize for things constantly.
"Sorry I’m late, traffic was horrible!" Sorry about the traffic.
"Ugh, I think I caught the flu!" Sorry you have the flu. That must be unpleasant.
"My house was burglarized and everything of value stolen!" Oh wow, I’m sorry. That’s a terrible experience.
And so on. It’s rude not to apologize, because failing to apologize suggests you do not care.
There is even commercials up here in Canada about how we Canadians like to apologize for everything.
Sorry.

Guys you don’t understand how awesome this is. This pattern happens everywhere. It happens on flowers and pinecones absolutely vegetables, it happens all around you. If you don’t think that’s like the realist shit ever i don’t understand you.It’s insane how the universe is literally full of beauty to the point that we can’t even see some of it. Beautiful down to the way it moves.
