Be Like, Beautiful, and Crying: Someone should write a book where the main character slowly falls in love with the reader. "Someone should write a book where the main character slowly falls in love with the reader. Last line of the book "Please, don't close the book, I don't want to die oh my god I'd just like, keep the book open and tape it to a wall. I'm almost afraid to want it John Green, we're waiting So I guess this is it, isn't it? There are no more chapters, right? You said we were getting close and that was a while ago. I stared up into the sky, it was the same old sky there had always been, except for some rainclouds that hadn't been there a few minutes ago. It wasn't raining, but they were still floating up there grey and dismal. You begin to ask me something "Don't ask me how I know, I just do. Things just feel really final right now, like the downward slope is starting to level out Eventually... We'll hit the back cover, right? I sat down on a bench- had that been there a few minutes ago? It was hard to tell. Did you say yes? I think I heard you. Your voice keeps getting harder to hear Thunder rumbled, but. t wasn't like the thunder I'm used to. It sounded like you, and it sounded sad. From one of the clouds, a single drop of rain fell on the grainy wood of the bench. ".. You're crying, aren't you? I'm sorry, I'm really sorry. I wishl could change this. I wish I could reach where you are Thunder rolled again, and behind it was a voice. Your voice Me? I'li be fine, I think. I don't know if this has ever happened before. I don't really know what happens when you...close the book. You ask me if I'm afraid And oddly, I'm not. "No, actually. Because... Whatever happens to me when you close the cover... You can always open the book up again, right? and that's when the answer hits me, the realization jolting me to stand again. That's it, isn't it? You can open it back up. The words won't change, but Fll still be here. You can meet me all over again, and I can meet you, and everything we have will come back. It's raining now, and the clouds have merged together, and in them, for the first time... I see you You are the most beautiful life person I have ever seen in my entire You're crying, but it's quiet, and maybe that was the sound of your tears hitting paper I realize that we don't have a lot of time. Listen-before it's all over-I want you to know that everything, all of this... Even being over, it was worth it. It was worth it to meet you, to get to know you. Even if when you close that cover and I disappear- it was all worth it. I love you. You love me too, I know it, I can feel it, just like for a moment I can feel what it would be like to hold your hand. There is a very long pause, and I realize you're prolonging what has to happen. "You can do it." For the first time, you have to be the hero. You have to close the book so we can keep going. And I believe in you. The sky gets darker, slowly, but then it gets light again, and your face is still up in those clouds. You open your mouth and for the first time I HEAR you, not just feel what you're saying or understand you in my own head, your voice comes through the pages in your world and into the reality of mine, and it reverberates and I can hear every little nuance, down to the hitch from you crying "Tll never forget you, you say. TIl come back soon The end SOMEONE DID AND NOW IM EMOTIONAL i would keep the book open and write extras saying that "NOPE WERE MARRIED.

Truganini was the last full-blooded Palawa, but that doesn’t mean they are “extinct” as those reductive infographics would have you believe. Doesn’t matter how much milk you put in a cup of coffee, it’s still a cup of coffee, and just because Tasmanian aboriginals today are mixed race doesn’t mean they’re not still aboriginal with a living culture and a strong connection to their ancestors and their history. </p> <p>On Bruny Island, Truganini’s birthplace, which the Nuenone people called Lunnawanna-Alonnah, there is a thriving cultural centre called Weetapoona. The government restored land to Tasmanian aboriginals a few years back. There they are doing some fantastic work to revive their customs, work with archaeologists, as well as achieve reconciliation. </p> <p>Colonists certainly committed incomprehensible atrocities. Kidnapping, rape, murder, massacre, theft of land, even theft of aboriginal bodies. Not content with taking their lives and exiling them from country, they took bodies as trophies and sent them across the sea, away from land and ancestors. As a way of excusing their atrocities, perhaps, colonisers spread the idea that Tasmanians were the most backward and least evolved of all human beings, making them valuable “specimens.” It was Truganini’s greatest fear that she would be made a souvenir after she died, and unfortunately her fears came true. It took many, many decades before her body was returned to country. I could go on and on, but my point is that it is so important that we don’t spread this idea of extinction and acknowledge them instead as a living culture who must be allowed to define themselves, their past and their future. Spreading nonsense and reductive half-truths like the one above only makes it worse. </p> </blockquote> <p>OP is either an idiot who can’t do research or a liar.</p></blockquote>

Anaconda, Arguing, and Empire: NO, BUT SERIOUSLY THE FUTURE IS IN MECHANICS, YEAH MECHANICS!

PRUSSIA CALLS GERMANY “WEST” MEANING THE NAME HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE WALL AS THE COMIC TAKES PLACE IN THE 19TH CENTURY!!!!! That doesn’t necessarily mean that Prussia still can’t have been East Germany. If you look at where Prussia (as in the Duchy of Prussia which was eventually merged with Brandenberg to form the overall Kingdom of Prussia) was, it’s very far to the east of where most of Germany is. Beyond that, the Kingdom of Prussia leading up to unification was to the east of the majority of the other German states. The essence of “Prussianness” was also widely considered to be found in the East-Elbian Juncker landowning class. Moreover, the majority of Imperial German land that didn’t belong specifically to Prussia (since yes, Prussia still existed and actually had hegemony during the Imperial Era)  in the west. It would make sense for Prussia to see his little brother, the German Empire, as his western counterpart. Moving on to when Germany was split between East and West, it was mostly East Prussian lands that were in the Soviet sphere. It is very possible to argue that Prussia has always represented the Eastern Part of Germany, from Empire to GDR.   I’m not sure if op even wanted to imply that Prussia might not be East Germany, but it is 100% obvious that Prussia represented East Germany and there’s no doubt about it. There’s a lot of evidence,the strongest one is imo that Prussia feels ostalgisch,a feeling that only East Germans have
