awkward how reassuring i find this

well ya duh society shames speech patterns associated with young women


"Speech fillers" are just a human’s way of saying "wait a sec I’m thinking". It means we think more before we speak, always trying to find the right way to say it. Every language has them. And people shouldn’t be annoyed by it, ever.

“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”

Interesting.

also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope

the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him

but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high

and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair

what a badass

It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

Since the original article has since been deleted (I can’t imagine why…), you can still view it here.

While ancient Egyptians were, by all accounts, black, the fact remains that their civilization was under foreign rule for the last 340 years before its collapse.  There are literally numerous funerary coffins from that time period—different from a traditional Egyptian sarcophagus—that bore portraits depicting the person inside.  These are referred to as Fayum mummy portraits.  They are clearly a departure from Egyptian practices and artwork, and are considered as direct Roman influence, so yes:  There is quite a lot of evidence as to the Greek and Roman occupation of Egypt.

As for Cleopatra, even her name is of Greek origin.  As mentioned above, she was part of the Ptolemaic dynasty of Greek rulers that served as Egyptian pharaohsThe land would be later ruled over by Romans, Arabs, and Muslims.  It is not known who her mother is, but it is speculated that even her mother may have been part Macedonian, and not fully Egyptian, thus putting even the suggested quarter of Egyptian heritage into question.  While both queens Hapshetsut and Nefertiti were of pure Egyptian lineage, Cleopatra was not.

Or, if you’d like even more information, I’m pretty sure I’ve got a few books around here on the subject…

But seriously:  Please do not make a post about the history of anything unless you are knowledgeable enough about it that you are not presenting a false account of someone else’s civilization.

THANK GOD SOMEONE DID THIS!!! ITS BEEN IRRITATING ME FOR WEEKS!!

Every time I tried to correct it I got so completely and utterly fed up and frustrated I had to turn the computer off.

lets all fact check before we hit that submit button??

I saw this the other day and wanted to dig it up again

And since I can’t bold the OP’s words any darker:

 Please do not make a post about the history of anything unless you are knowledgeable enough about it that you are not presenting a false account of someone else’s civilization.

tagged as: Are you kidding me. I knew this shit as an eight-year old looking up Egyptian mythology because I thought it was cool. So the fact that people actually think Cleopatra's Egyptian is. well. unthinkable to me. I repeat. I KNEW THIS AT EIGHT YEARS OLD.

How was your childhood? Did you grow up alone?? -Raviobun

No, I didn’t grow up alone. However, I wish I had.

My family was… the Lorulean equivalent of the long-dead Gerudo race of Hyrule. The Hylians called genocide on the Hyrulean Gerudo after Ganon was sealed by the seven sages, and only a few managed to escape, and their blood has since thinned out. The Lorulean equivalent had no such problems. 

Much like the Hyrulean Gerudo, our race consisted of entirely females except for the rare century-born male. However, I knew that I was not meant to be born as a female. I was meant to be that once-a-century male. 

My mothers (one to birth me and others to take care of me) didn’t believe me in the slightest. They insisted I was a girl, that the true male would have been born as one. Most of my sisters berated me for it— couldn’t they see I had my own issues? I was broken, flawed from birth! Nevertheless I hated their company, they insulted me for “wanting to be a man”

It was even harder as my family put pressure on me to abandon my true identity and focus on surviving. As the Hyrulean Gerudo lived in the desert, we hailed from the Lorulean equivalent— Misery Mire. As the name suggests, it was rather… miserable. Anything that detracted from survival was considered pointless, and they wanted me to focus on that rather than finding a way to assume my real gender.

Most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.

BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Inc™ and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software

A lesbian of color black lesbian (who is married to a trans woman) becomes the model for an ultra advanced AI system.
This is huge.

Other links: [x] [x] [x]

So lemme get this… the developer/CEO of the development company is a jewish trans lesbian woman and the highest paid female ceo in america, and this project is based on her wife, a black lesbian woman, and both are mothers with children from previous relationships who they have now each legally adopted???

this exists in the actual world and people still think sci fi can only be about straight cis vaguely-christian white men…….

I made a very sad thing

So um…there was talk about a “Princess’ Shade” a little while back

can’t remember who brought up that idea

but I made a Princess’ Shade

———-

The Hero’s Shade was most likely buried in that armor, if he was found

So Zelda would probably be wearing some really decorative clothes when she was buried

——

I am so sorry if you can’t tell what’s what

for instance, that’s a veil not hair

I did this as quick as I could.

Happy 125th anniversary, Nintendo!

Nintendo just turned 125 years in Japan. Founded on september 23, 1889, originally as a producer of handmade Hanafuda cards, going into several small niche business as well, such as cab services and even love hotels to finally getting involved into toys/electronic business by late 70s. The rest is history…

Here’s to another 125 years. Stay awesome.

Guys look at that giant adorable dork using my new modem as a couch. 

And then after finishing taking pictures of her, I find Misty being super perfect and adorable by my side like “oi, did you know I’m very photogenic as well?”
