This is such a phenomenal moment for Rose # she never got her A-levels # never felt particularly clever by our Earth standards # until she met the Doctor and realized that Earth standards are pretty limited when it comes to evaluating someone’s worth # And here’s a kid - Adam - who is the BEST of what Earth has to offer in terms of intelligence # boy genius with high marks and a high-paying top-secret job # By Earth standards he’s got everything to offer # and here he is stumbling around in front of her because he’s ignorant # because Rose has seen and experienced more than he could imagine # because SHE’s the special one # the one the Doctor chose for her cleverness and courage # She’s the one in the superior position # Which is not probably a feeling she’s used to # And bless her she doesn’t lord it over him (via gallifreyburning)
Mary Turner 1918 Eight Months Pregnant
Mobs lynched Mary Turner on May 17, 1918 in Lowndes County, Georgia because she vowed to have those responsible for killing her husband arrested. Her husband was arrested in connection with the shooting and killing Hampton Smith, a white farmer for whom the couple had worked, and for wounding his wife. Sidney Johnson. a Black man, apparently killed Smith because he was tired of the farmer’s abuse. Unable to find Johnson. the killers lynched eight other Blacks Including Hayes Turner and his wife Mary. The mob hanged Mary by her feet, poured gasoline and oil on her and set fire to her body. One white man sliced her open and Mrs. Turner’s baby tumbled to the ground with a “little cry” and the mob stomped the baby to death and sprayed bullets into Mary Turner.

There is a display in the Black Wax Museum based off her tragic story. It’s so graphic, it just tears me up and makes me angry all over again.
this is the worst thing I have ever read
This is what they want us to forget. This is what they want us to get over. Meanwhile muslims still can’t get past a normal wand search without issue because of 9/11…….

this is silly because if you look closely you can see that the tiger is not an actual tiger but a Beanie Baby, a popular childs toy.

"Son," the father says, examining the broken petri dishes littered about the floor, “I’m not a mad scientist, I’m just a disappointed scientist.”
I don’t even care what you think this is the best post I’ve ever made
A 2500 year old mummy that had some amazing tattoos.
NO FUCKING WAY.
YO HOLD ON.
IT GETS BETTER.
This mummy, found in the Altai mountains of Siberia, is actually that of a young woman who died at about the age of twenty-five; she is thought to have been a member of the Pazyryk tribe.
She was buried with six horses and two similarly-tattooed men (the horned griffon that decorates her shoulder also appears on the man buried closest to her, covering most of his right side), possibly escorts. She was also wearing a horse-hair wig, silk, and elaborate boots, which is all a level of ceremony that would have likely only been accorded to a woman of high rank. You didn’t get inked like this unless you were very important, and had worked your way up to that importance.
…Hence, of course, the references to her by researchers as ‘The Ukok Princess,’ although due to the lack of weapons in her grave they have concluded that the woman was in fact a healer or a storyteller.
And now I’m all consumed with curiosity: Who was she? What amazing things did she accomplish? Why these symbols, and what did they mean? Who were the two men alongside her?
The most informative article about it can be found here, although I would completely eat up any other information you guys could find.
This is literally me and my friends

There’s nothing like just apple picking in the Fall, the first cold New York weather hitting you, the fashion sense steaming up, and the fresh apple cider and donuts.
I LOVE THE FALL.
And hats and scarves and knee socks and wearing tights for the first…
