This post is eveeeeeeeerything



There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?

Like Can I get at least a hell yeah?

Most people actually haven’t heard about it yet. 







Dark Ages, Schmark Ages. The De-Textbook cuts through that and so much more fake-fact bullshit.

cloudy with a chance of witch burning

your periodic reminder that a good chunk of Europe basically shat the bed for a few centuries while everyone else kinda did their thing.

I am sorry I’m going to be that person.

This map is extremely inaccurate.

1) China was not going through business as usual China was going through the TANG DYNASTY i.e. the Golden Age of Chinese culture, which would lay down legal and social and poetic norms for the rest of Chinese history. The Tang is so influential that a lot of languages call Chinese people 唐人 (People from Tang.) (We call Chinese people “people from Qin” so.)

2) Japan is _first becoming literate_ during this time period (due to the influence of the Tang they adopt Chinese script), which is a BFD for poetry, religion, politics, society. Japanese court culture develops, which near the end of this period (11th century, around the time Europe enters “high middle ages”) will produce The Tale of Genji (by a totally awesome woman named Murasaki),widely regarded as the world’s first novel because of it’s deft use of irony and social commentary.

3) The southern part of Korea is experiencing the emergence of Unified Silla, a state that will last the entire period and will see the importation of Chinese and Indian buddhism, the construction of the first Confucian college in Korea, and so on.

4) In Mesoamerica, the Mayans are inventing astronomy, writing (the third and final independent invention of writing in human history), and a whole crapload of other stuff. This is the triumph of their culture.

5) The Umayyads in Spain are a massive center of technology, learning, and (comparative) religious toleration.

6) The Eastern Roman Empire, which spans both the green and yellow portions of your map, isn’t doing too badly either, bouncing back after losing territory to the Caliphate.

7) The Polynesians are colonizing the ENTIRE PACIFIC using amazing advanced navigation technology not rivaled until the INVENTION OF GPS.

8) I am not equipped to talk about Sub-Saharan Africa in detail (cue rant about how we never learn about subsaharan africa in the western educational system) but you can bet there are some major, amazing developments going on there too. I’d be shocked if there weren’t.



11) THEY WEREN’T BURNING WITCHES IN EUROPE DURING THE MIGRATION PERIOD (dark ages). Witch burning took off in the EARLY MODERN PERIOD, nearly 1000 years after this. Europe was going through some tough shit, which would leave them backwards compared to the rest of the world for 1000 years, but also there were some amazing things happening there, at least have the decency to be like “angry dudes with swords stabbing people” not WITCH BURNINGS FFS.

12) And ABSOLUTELY Islamic Caliphate was a totally amazing flowering of intellectual, artistic, and spiritual culture, a mixing pot between a thousand cultures and languages, and totally amazing. Don’t in any way want to diminish that in any way.

I’ve always winced when seeing the original picture, so thank you binghsien for that excellent commentary!

To add:

8) Around 1000 AD was a major wave of Bantu migration, carrying a new technology of advanced ironwork throughout Africa:

I’m so happy the person above did this.



This girl was crying and begging the policeman not to hit her or any of her friends. Then the policeman started crying as well and he said to her: “You just hold on girl.”

The photo comes from protests happening in Bulgaria right now. Students are protesting poverty and corruption in Bulgaria’s Socialist-backed government, chaining themselves to the doors of Sofia University and clashing with police outside of parliament.

After the photo was taken it quickly went viral

this picture is so powerful



"nobody fucking helps me in this house"

I’m laughing so hard at this





I’m her father. New York City, 12 years ago. The little scamp lifted my wallet. When I first met her she was wild, dangerous. To herself and to others. But she had the gift. My perfect thief.

3.03; The Inside Job / 4.18; The Last Dam Job

You all know how much I adore Parker and Archie and how her stealing his wallet every time they meet gives me all the FEELINGS because that’s how they knew each other and the last time they said goodbye to each other she returned him his wallet because she had finally found her place in the world and she was ready to let him go so obviously the scene in this episode with her lifting his wallet again makes me want to die because it’s their thing and that’s how competent thieves with such an emotional baggage together recognize each other and ugh, it’s so perfect for them. Also Archie calling her ‘his daughter’ in front of her real daughter and HER FACE and him going with her without a doubt the moment he sees her because he really can’t stay out of the game makes me sob because these. thieves. I genuinely think Richard Chamberlain is probably one of the best casting choices this show has ever done (damn, the man has so much class) and I can’t think of anyone better to play this wise, sophisticated, badass thief who wears a cane with an extendible stiletto blade like the characters in those Old Hollywood movies, who remains unshakable at everything except when it comes to Parker and him and Beth have an insane amount of chemistry and they play each other so well and I just have so many feelings about this show’s father figures. HELP.

Have you seen that clam video? Dude it changed my life. Anyways Jennifer here, annoyed that people think i look like a cat, sometimes grumpy and reblogs everything thats humanly possible
