I reject your reality and substitute my own!

Dana, 20. Studying information sciences & technology (ASK ME ABOUT MY MAJOR). Hufflepuff. Nerdfighter. A cappella geek. LOVES YOU (and food).

Fandoms include Pentatonix, Harry Potter, Avengers, Whose Line, Doctors Who and Horrible, LBD, Game of Thrones, Teen Wolf, Percy Jackson, occasional musicals, and various youtubers. But these days I mostly reblog text posts, cats, and avengers headcanons.

Also super nerdy science/tech stuff and lots of xkcd, because as I learn more about technology I get excited when I actually understand the jokes about it.

This is a reblog blog. Forever unquality.

yes, basically. it’s not always your fault tbh but yeah you’re part of the problem

I don’t know what’s going on here but…You can’t blame every guy in the world for sexism. Not every guy wants to opress you. What about trans men? Are they a problem?

And it’s not like you can just call every man on earth a sexist.

And you’re being sexist right now for treating someone differently because of their gender. 

^This

it is literally impossible for me to care any less about what either of you are saying

cis men are a part of the problem no matter what because they are given privileges that women aren’t no matter what cis men are literally always part of the problem even if they don’t mean to be go fucking learn something

Surely it’s the people giving boys the privileges that are the problem, not the boys themselves.

Okay imma put it into simpler terms.

You go trick or treating with your friend. And a person gives your friend more sweets than they gave you.

Do you blame your friend? No. You blame the person giving you sweets.

I’m a gay cis male, which is punishable by death in many parts of the world. So I’m still an oppressor?

It’s almost like tumblr SJWs want to be victims to as many people as they can.

This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.

CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:

  • do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
  • go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
  • if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
  • look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
  • the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
  • works every time

"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING

My parents used the classic British version of “Let’s make sure you didn’t make a hole in the floor.”

I also had a riding instructor who’s line when a kid fell off was “I didn’t tell you you could dismount!” (Sadly, that was one of the few things she did right).

A lot of you fellas need to hear this message. That’s why we’re having as many attractive female comedians as possible deliver it.

10 Creepy Comments That Only Women Get On the Internet

the comments on this video are not encouraging

Not to trick you into a flame war with somebody, but why not go be an encouraging comment?

I’m always proud to write with Cracked, and I’m especially proud when they make things like this. I would say I’d wish we could force people posting those messages to say them out loud first, but honestly, I’d sip to the bit with the taser.

The spread of the black death.

Poland

Poland, tell us your secret.

Poland is the old new Madagascar. 

If I remember correctly, Poland’s secret is that the jews where being blamed all over europe (as usual) as scapegoats for the black plague. Poland was the only place that accepted Jewish refugees, so pretty much all of them moved there. 
Now, one of the major causes of getting the plague was poor hygiene. This proved very effective for the plague because everyone threw their poop into the streets because there were no sewers, and literally no one bathed because it was against their religion. Unless they were jewish, who actually bathed relatively often. When all the jews moved to Poland, they brought bathing with them, and so the plague had little effect there.
Milan survived by quarantining its city and burning down the house of anyone showing early symptoms, with the entire family inside it. 

I reblogged this tons of times, but the Milan info is new.
Damn Italy, you scary.

Poland: “Hey, feeling a bit down? Have a quick wash! There, you see? All better”
Milan: “Aw, feeling a bit sick are we? BURN MOTHERFUCKER, BURN!!!!!”

Also, this might have something to do with it: from what I understand, O blood type is uncommonly… common in Poland. Something to do with large families in small villages and a LOT of intermarriage. The black plague was caused by a bacterium that produced, in its waste in the human body, wastes that very closely mimic the “B” marker sugars on red blood cells that keep the body from attacking its own immune system. Anyone who has a B blood type had an immune system that was naturally desensitized to the presence of the bacterium, and therefore was more prone to developing the disease. Anyone who had an O type was doubly lucky because the O blood type means the total absence of ANY markers, A or B, meaning that their bodys’ immune system would react quickly and violently against the invaders, while someone with an A may show symptoms and recover more slowly, while someone with B would have just died. Because O is a recessive blood type, it shows in higher numbers when more people who carry the recessive genes marry other people who also carry the recessive gene. Poland, which has a nearly 700 year history of being conquered by or partnering with every other nation in the surrounding area, was primarily an agricultural country, focused around smaller, farming communities where people were legally tied to, and required to work, “their” land, and so historically never “spread” their genes across a large area. The economy was, and had been, unstable for a very long period of time leading up to the plague, the government had been ineffective and had very little reach in comparison to the armies of the other countries around for a very very long time, and so its people largely remained in small communities where multiple generations of cross-familial inbreeding could have allowed for this more recessive gene to show up more frequently. Thus, there could be a higher percentage of O blood types in any region of the country, guaranteeing less spread of the illness and moving slower when it did manage to travel. Combine this with the fact that there were very few large, urban centers where the disease would thrive, and with the above facts, and you’ve got a lovely recipe for avoiding the plague.
Interestingly enough, as a result from the plague, the entirety of Europe now has a higher percentage of people with O blood type than any other region of the world. 

WHY IS THIS ALL SO COOL


Just to throw a nod in, as a medieval historian, this is all credible, and is the leading theory as to the plagues effectiveness at this point. So. Enjoy your new knowledge!
