Alive, Love, and Target: words4bloghere: finallyhavingthetimeofmylife: infernalorchestrina: the-milk-eyed-mender: kitsunecoffee: beecharts: fangirequeen: knottybear: archiemcphee: Here’s an awesome little piece of history: Archaeologists in the Burnt City have discovered what appears to be an ancient prosthetic eye. What makes this discovery exceptionally awesome is the striking description of how the owner and her false eye would have appeared while she was still alive and blinking: [The eye] has a hemispherical form and a diameter of just over 2.5 cm (1 inch). It consists of very light material, probably bitumen paste. The surface of the artificial eye is covered with a thin layer of gold, engraved with a central circle (representing the iris) and gold lines patterned like sun rays. The female remains found with the artificial eye was 1.82 m tall (6 feet), much taller than ordinary women of her time. On both sides of the eye are drilled tiny holes, through which a golden thread could hold the eyeball in place. Since microscopic research has shown that the eye socket showed clear imprints of the golden thread, the eyeball must have been worn during her lifetime. The woman’s skeleton has been dated to between 2900 and 2800 BCE.  So she was an extraordinarily tall woman walking around wearing an engraved golden eye patterned with rays like a tiny sun. What an awesome sight that must have been. [via TYWKIWDBI] Wow. SOMEONE DRAW HER PLEASE CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!! CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW AN ANCIENT CRAFTSMAN WAS PRESENTED WITH PEOPLE LOOKING FOR HELP TO NORMALIZE THEIR DISABILITY. AND THEN SAID ‘NAH FUCK THIS WE’RE GOING TO MAKE YOU LOOK BADASS.’  i love her i still love her We learn so much when we look at the past, so we don’t do the same mistakes over and over.

Fucking, Guns, and Ignorant: HE TH TREVOR NO SHOW "IF THEYRE TOO YOUNG TO BUY GUNS, WHY SHOULD THEY BE MAKING MY GUN LAWS?" IF KIDS ARE OLD ENOUGH TO BE SHOT, THEY'RE OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT BEING SHOT <p><a href="http://snow-lives--matter.tumblr.com/post/171940862248/libertarirynn-this-isnt-having-an-opinion" class="tumblr_blog">snow-lives&ndash;matter</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="https://libertarirynn.tumblr.com/post/171938189669/this-isnt-having-an-opinion-about-being-shot" class="tumblr_blog">libertarirynn</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>This isn’t “having an opinion about being shot“ you fucking moron. It’s actively trying to change laws they know nothing about.</p></blockquote> <p>It’s quite disingenuous to pretend that no one knows what they’re protesting for. Yes, some people are ignorant to what exact policies are and what ones they want changed, and that’s awful, but most people are fully aware of the issue and that’s exactly why they want change. Pretending everyone who disagrees with you is an uninformed brat doesn’t exactly make you look great. </p> </blockquote> <p>“Pretending everyone who disagrees with you is an uninformed brat doesn’t exactly make you look great.”</p><p>Well then I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t do that. I’m specifically calling out these pubescent protesters, many of whom have verbalized these asinine arguments. Of course there are people who understand existing laws. But the majority of the most popular anti-gun arguments show an astounding lack of knowledge for the current laws in place. Calling for things like mental health checks, background checks, and minimum age requirements when all of those things already exist with varying levels of severity depending on the state. Calling certain weapons “assault rifles” because they look scary despite functioning in much the same way as “less threatening” guns. Exaggerating and at times outright lying about the number of fatal gun incidents in this country and the success of gun control in other countries.</p><p>Yes there are people who know what they’re talking about. But they are disturbingly lacking in the majority of these pop arguments that inundate the news cycle.</p>

A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, "Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?" I got a call from a woman who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information when she interrupted me with "I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts. Without trying to make her look like the stupid one, I calmly explained, "Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa." Her response... click. A man called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that is not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, "Don't lie to me. I looked on the map and Florida is a verv thin state." I got a call from a man who asked, "Is it possible to see England from Canada?" I said, "No." He said, "But they look so close on the map." <p>Overweight Woman Is Appalled When This Airline Staff Intentionally Called Her “FAT”. But The Reality Is Hysterical.</p>
