Your album cover draws inspiration from a Jimi Hendrix's photo shot by Ron Raffaelli, what is it about that photo that inspired you and also Jimi cause he's mentioned throughout your songs? And is M. Bison about M. Bison of the video game Street Fighter II?

I didn't. I just learned ways around it

This is me!! Any time I am about to say something but it won't come out, I quickly find another synonym for it

Hey man! I'm a stutter too, but what if the word you want to say doesn't have a synonym? For example: I want to talk people about Batman, almost everyone knows him, but i stutter a lot with the word and it doesn't have a synonym because it's his persona name. I tought saying sometimes, "oh it's the vigilante who dresses as Bat", and they will say "Batman", and i will be like, "Yeah man! That one!" What do you think about this method when you can't find a synonym?

One way to get around that is to always add 'um' before the words you find hard to find hard to pronounce so that it looks like you are trying to remember the word, but really it's a way to get the words out. It may seem trivial but I tell new people I meet later on that I am a stutter and they find that hard to believe! Also, try pronouncing the words at a slightly slower pace than you are used to, and a little confidence goes a long waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

The one consolation I have in this gif is that no blind people will be offended by it.

They are... George Carlin was right when he said anything you say nowadays somewhat pisses somebody.

I'm blind and can say that the begger could have been reacting to the sound of the persons movement which startled him.

Soon as he lift his leg up, he was startled, that isn't a blind person, he saw it coming.

Yeeeessssssss... so, who do you think the bones belong to?

Elizabeth's mum that Red murdered... It's about to get a whole lot interesting.... We should make a Telegram group and stan Blacklist

That is a rather obvious guess... I don't think they belong to her. Assuming Red did not lie in season 2 when he told Liz he can never lie to her and that he is not the dad, I think this bones thing is part of a long con by Red.

Come to think of it you're right. Itt also appears to be something really dangerous, that even got Tom killed. And btw, let's see how Red cops without Mr. Kaplan

If you take a look at how Africa is portrayed in Mass media, including Nat Geo, or commercials for aid, such as the Christian one "for ten cents a day" you'll find that most of them only show grass huts, tribes, starving children and generally just underdeveloped areas of the continent.

For most people, that's the ONLY thing that they know of Africa, and assume the whole of Africa is like that. It's almost not their fault, but it 100% is. A lot of Western education glosses over 80-90% of what Africa has achieved or not achieved.

Most of my world history classes spent 75% talking about Europe, Asia, Northern Africa (and by that I mean Egypt really) and America. Everywhere else is just a foot note. In 9th grade we had one chapter on Africa and it only talked about the slave trade. That was our only talking point. We had one page on Nelson Mandela and apartheid.

That's why people commenting were surprised.

It was appalling going through the comments, but what the hell?

Because, for whatever reason, the stereotype of Africa is that everyone lives in grass huts and has no technology. In the United States, our idiot President actually publicly made some comment about Nigerians living in huts.
