Hi. Name's Anne. Nice to meet you.

I don't have much to offer anyone except random sfm crap and stuff.

Please don't send hateful anonymous asks.

Gene cares a lot about Pyro, and wants them to be healthy, but its frustrating to see them constantly turn down treatment for their psychosis.

Aaw, Pyro please take your pills. ;3;

If someone calls you ‘ugly’ have a good comeback and say ‘excuse me, I am not a mirror’.

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

Topoke Sword

  • Dated: early 20th century
  • Culture: African
  • Place of Origin: D. R. Congo, Africa
  • Measurements: overall lenght 16”; blade lenght 11 1/4”; pommel lenght 2 1/2”  

Often attributed to the Topoke, Lokele or Tetela peoples of Zaire, the sword has a wood handle wrapped in copper wire. The solid iron pommel is quite heavy and has brass inlay on one side. The blade features intricate lines chiseled into the surface. The swords of this size and quality were used for battle, but many of this type - with the iron pommel - were also used as status symbols and currency.

riots are breaking out in glasgow right now, scottish flags are being burned, people are making nazi salutes, there is racism and sectarianism and god knows what else, there are supposed stabbings, people are being beaten up purely for voting Yes, but the bbc has decided that a news story more worthy of being reported is the first iphone 6 owner dropping his new phone. the anti-scottish bias from the bbc is reaching new levels of absurdity
