If I have any advice for the people starting college or university this week, it’s this:

A lot of kids who struggled socially in high school- dealing with bullying, ostracization, isolation, and loneliness- got themselves through with the thought that “university will be…

we as a society need to start talking about abusive friendships, bc those exist and seem to be really common

and most people in them dont know how do deal w the abuse bc its normally emotional abuse which.gets delegitimized, and its a platonic relationship and not a romo or sexual one, so it gets delegitimized for that too

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

cloudy with a chance of witch burning

i mean like i’m pretty sure the scandinavians and germany weren’t roman so they were never real affected by the dark ages but okay

Plus Baltic countries and Northern Finland were the last places in Europe to be Christianized sooo witch trials couldn’t possibly have started here before the Renaissance. Poor oversimplification is poor.

these modern borders don’t exactly help matters either

Any respectable historian wouldn’t use the term Dark Ages anyway. It’d be the Early Middle Ages.

Look at all my friends, saying all the things I wanted to say the moment I saw the post. <3

As I understand, even the center of the highlighted areas weren’t as dark as it’s made out to be. Witch burnings weren’t common until the Spanish Inquisition; earlier “Inquisitions” were more like missionary work than anything else. A lot of knowledge was kept and reproduced and spread as it could be in and through monasteries that doubled as schools. (Critical error, though, in keeping Aristotle. Trying to develop inaccurate ideas does hold you back from progressing.) 
And even if I’m wrong about all of that, it’s quite certain that the term “Dark Ages” was coined by King Henry VIII and spread intentionally to discredit the Catholic Church that had been a major power throughout that time.

u have no idea just how much i hate this post. this was a joke about gettign fucked up on pepsi then some charles Bukowski impersonator decides to write something more cliche than an anime protagonist using the power of freindship

koujakuandthediamonds:

the worst is when you’re reading a really good book that follows multiple characters’ stories and you love it 90% of the time until it periodically switches back to that one character’s story that you just could not care less about and it’s like an entire chapter of internal groaning while waiting for the plot to switch back to a character you actually care about

And Combeferre just finds it really hard to stay mad at him after that

I hate it when men make unsolicited comments about a woman’s body. Like “she’s got a nice shape but she needs to tighten up her stomach”

How about you tighten up your lips and never speak again you…
