For more tumblr stuff, here are some random tumblr gems to tumble through.

Shopping Cart Theory Determines State Of Person's Morals

This quick and enlightening shopping cart theory aims to determine whether or not a person is good or bad. It boils down to whether or not a person decides to make the "right" choice when they are aware that nobody else is looking. Seems fair enough. Sometimes, it's not about that good act of wholesome kindness that you pull off when you know you'll receive recognition and praise. Instead, it can be a more pure reflection of your morality, when you're out there doing the right things without any inflation of your ego.
