An example of what high heels do to your feet. We learned in our Kinesiology class that wearing high heels puts your full body weight on your phalanges, which aren’t designed to carry that much weight. This picture is really cool because you can see exactly how that happens. My feet hurt just thinking about it.

100 Reasons to Stay Alive~
Just a friendly reminder in case you had forgotten all of the wonderful little things that makes life worth the struggle~
Wrote up this list as an additional page on my blog and will be adding more as time goes on. If you have any suggestions you want to see on this list, feel free to message me.
Life is worth it.
I love you.
My dad was telling me about these girls at his old college who invented a nail polish that paints on clear, and if you stir your drink with your finger with the nail polish on, it will react with the “Date Rape” drug and turn red.
Dude. It’s genius.
I saw this before and didn’t reblog it because it didn’t have anything to say how but now that there is a link saying how I wil reblog it.
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
//Absurdly helpful for people writing royal characters and/or characters who interact with royalty and members of the nobility.

Tension. It’s important to a story, right? How’s it done? Anna Jacobs of AutoCrit.com wrote an article about it for you, and here’s what you need to know:
1. Don’t shove information in the reader’s face; in fact, it’s best to not tell them anything they don’t need to for their comprehension right at that moment. Hey, I do believe we already had a post on this …
2. Surprise me: Characters shouldn’t be predictable, if you remember, that’s what makes them 3-dimensional (click the title for your link). If what your characters are doing always feels obvious, your readers might get bored. Life in general is full of twists and turns, things we’d never expect. If your world is realistic, shouldn’t it be a little unpredictable, too?
3. Let the readers know things the characters don’t. Not too much, or else your readers will feel like they’re always waiting for the characters to catch-up. But if you give them a taste of what’s to come, say, a trap set in place by your antagonist, they’ll be dying to know what happens … then you can surprise them.
4. Cliff-hangers. 'Nuff said (which, come to think of it, probably hasn't been said since the 90s)
5. Short, quick sentences. It keeps them reading. If there’s a scene that needs it, ramp up the tension by keeping it short. This works well for more action-oriented scenes.
Here’s the real article for your leisure.
I don’t really know what kind of history books bigots like you read.
The Great Libraries of Timbuktu? The steel metallurgy of the Haya? Dentistry? Caesarean section? Premature neonatal care? Mathematics, architecture, engineering?
I know it’s hard for a racist like you who imagines “technological advancement” to be some kind of end-all-be-all, or proof of some “inherent intelligence”. I know, I know. It’s hard to imagine, but Europeans have been drawing knowledge from everyone around them since the dawn of time. What did you think ended the Dark Ages?
Your magical (read: white supremacist) idea of a purely 'white' Rome never existed.
The Minoan culture on the island of Crete between 1500-1700 B.C.E. had a highly developed waste management system. They had very advanced plumbing and designed places to dispose of organic wastes. Knossos, the capital city, had a central courtyard with baths that were filled and emptied using terra-cotta pipes. This piping system is similar to techniques used today. They had large sewers built of stone.”
In case you needed further clarification, neither the Minoans nor other (later) Greeks were ethnically uniform. They also had the first flush toilets, dating back to 18th century B.C.E. They had flushing toilets, with wooden seats and an overhead reservoir. The Minoan royals were the last group to use flushing toilets until the re-development of that technology in 1596.
Oh, and look the Mayans had indoor plumbing, acqueducts, and pressurized water too. I mean, you can ignore that the area Mayans lived in had little to few rivers, no lakes or standing water, nor other sources of running water, while simultaneously dealing with monsoons and flooding due to one of the heaviest yearly rainfalls in the Americas.
Classic Maya even used household water filters using locally abundant limestone carved into a porous cylinder, made so as to work in a manner strikingly similar to modern ceramic water filters.
Of course, by this time millenia later none of your precious “white people” had developed any methods besides shitting in pots.Continuing, the earliest archaeological record of an advanced system of drainage comes from the Indus Valley Civilization from around 3100 B.C.E in what is now Pakistan and North India. By 2500 B.C.E (almost 5,000 years ago), highly developed drainage system where wastewater from each house flowed into the main drain.All houses in the major cities of Harappa and Mohenjo−daro had access to water and drainage facilities. Waste water was directed to covered drains which lined the major streets directed to covered drains, which lined the major streets. Each home had its own private drinking well and its own private bathroom. The mains that carried wastewater to a cesspit were tall enough for people to walk through. Reservoirs, a central drainage system, fresh water pumped into the homes. Pools. Baths.It was made from bricks smoothened and joined together seamlessly. The expert masonry kept the sewer watertight. Drops at regular intervals acted like an automatic cleaning device.
Filters for solid waste.Sorry, what were the British doing up until like, 200 years ago? Shitting in the streets? Oh yeah.I mean, I could get into how by the Shang Dynasty (roughly 1600 B.C.E.), China had sophisticated plumbing including pressure inverted siphons.
Or into the city of Amarna, Ancient Egypt. Or Persepolis, Persia and the Achaemenids in 600 B.C.E.But, I mean, it sounds like the only one still in the Bronze Age is you.
I love it when people bring facts to white supremacist logic.
