Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis. Bowser was assumed to be illiterate, and as a black woman was below suspicion. Practically invisible, she was able to listen to conversations between Confederate officials and read sensitive documents, gathering information that she handed over to the Union.

This needs to be a movie. Like, now.

I’d watch this movie.

How is this not a movie?

"Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself."

I want to talk about writing self-indulgent fanfic.

To be perfectly honest, I want to talk about writing self-indulgent fanfic because I’m currently struggling to give myself permission to write self-indulgent fanfic. So I’m sorting this all around in my head anyway, and I might as well try to put it into words in case it helps anyone else.

Sometimes I see people who say, in their summaries/author’s notes/tags/other header or footer info, something along the lines of “this is horribly self-indulgent oh god why am i even posting it i guess apparently people read this stuff?”: something small and self-deprecating and ashamed. And it makes me—honestly, it makes me—sad.

"average starfleet officer breaks the prime directive twice a month" factoid actualy a statistical error. average starfleet officer breaks prime directive 0 times a month. jim kirk, who captains the enterprise & breaks the prime directive 10,000 times each month, is an outlier adn should not have been counted.

do centaur babies suckle from the horse nipples or the human nipples tho

Centaurs aren’t real. Do you understand that?

yes that is why i made a tumblr post about this instead of just asking a real centaur

Our research into Centaur physiology brings us to believe that the sex primary and secondary sex organs are located within and upon the lower portion of the body.

So work had an “Illegal Harassment Awareness Training”

And when the nice lady running the seminar got to the protected catagories, there was some confusion over “gender identity.”

I sat there, just staring blankly ahead, as she tried to talk the group around to the facts of that concept, and then, from the back of the room, the oldest, crankiest coot in my department goes, “Aw, for Pete’s sake, gender is completely different from anatomy, ain’t you all ever heard of Gender Dysphoria?  Person says she’s a lady, you treat ‘em as a lady, person says he’s a fella, then he’s a fella.  It’s not your place to tell ‘em different; respect their gender identity, it’s a simple as that.”

And in the silence that follows, he glares at the room at large, and mutters, “Dark ages, I swear.”

…I totally read this in Doctor McCoy’s voice.

"…Completely different from anatomy." Not sex. Anatomy.

He could’ve gone there, but didn’t. Bless that cranky old guy.

Think I’ll take up cross-stitching just so I can make “Person says she’s a lady you treat ‘em as a lady. Person says he’s a fella, then he’s a fella.”

babies are naturally able to swim hello they just spent nine moths in amiotic fluid this is instinctive so no, parent is not shitty, parent is re-enforcing baby’s natural instinctive behaviour.

parent is good for doing this because parent is basically saying “yes the behaviours you were born with are great!”

Yup, if babies are ‘taught’ (allowed) to swim before they are six weeks old, they never lose the instincts they were born with that lets them hold their head above water and hold their breath when they need to. SCIENCE, man.

What’s really cool is, humans are the only primates known to have this instinct at birth. Other ape babies would just freak out and drown. So I don’t think it comes from being in amniotic fluid for 9 months (since it’s not like they have room to actually swim in there). It’s been speculated that humans evolved in the ocean at some point, which is a really cool theory that I recommend checking out.

Also, SWIMMING BABY IS ADORABLE.

when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”

i think it’s really interesting and cool actually that language has shifted so that ‘said’ implies that you’re quoting, while ‘was like’ means ‘i’m doing a general impression of this dude’. i mean you can’t really harsh on someone when ‘she was like aaah!’ means exactly that, doesn’t it? she was doing something very similar to the particular scream being made. so, ‘like’ indicates that you’re dealing with generalities and inexact terms, and want to convey the gist of things rather than focussing on exact phrasing and technical details—which is pretty great for young people, who are still developing cognitively and thus not always great at stringing a coherent sentence together. 

and then there’s “was all”, which tends to indicate a parody or exaggeration, or an even looser impression.

she said: “I know I’ve filed these for you before, but it’s really not part of my job duties and I’m very busy today.”

she was like: “done filing your paperwork, not my department, do it yourself.”

she was all: “shyeah, no.”

i am all in favor of flexibility in language and i think this is fantastic.

this post is like hell yeah correctness
