French literary critic Jacques Derrida once wrote an essay called "On Forgiveness". Which he'll never live down. For everyone who didn't bother reading it, visit Seriously Sorry.
Curated by a graphic designer from Austin creative collective Public School, SS is a virtual confession booth inspired by the creator's lingering regret over a particularly vicious roadside egging; it asks the guilty to submit their own atonements, and lets everyone else vote "accept" or the ever-tempting "deny". Some lightly expurgated pleas for forgiveness:
Disabled Distress: "Sorry I gave your colorblind child a rubiks cube for his birthday. My bad."
Because I Got...: "Dear dude at ACL, sorry I stole your sandals. Something impelled me to grab your sandals, dance with them, and take them with me. You were unaware of this, cuz I am sneaky. Still, that sucks, they were rainbows."
Breast Intentions: "Dear crazy lady who lives below me, I'm sorry I avoid you like I might catch a deadly disease from you, but every time you corner me all i can think about is how you aren't wearing a bra. Your boobs are weird."
For the really, really, really sorry, SS will snail mail a physical note to your "victim" -- so your regrets are certain to be read, and you can start feeling like less of a jacques-ass.
