All of that knowledge, lost forever. The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world. That graphic grinds my gears every time I see it romans. Julius Caesar to be precise  Remember this when you’re conquering. Keep the books. THIS HURTS MY HEART SO MUCH EVERY TIME ITS BROUGHT UP Julius Caesar needs to be stabbed for this I know we should totally stab Caesar Does March 15th sound good for everyone?? hey everyone, guess what day it is

The reason people are falling for this is that Asian characters really do get played by white actors all the time.

Was it worth it you fucker?? Did you like scaring ppl who are afraid that their history, their childhoods, their own identities would be bastardized just like it has been countless times before? Cheap shot op. Dirt cheap. Also fuck the ppl on this who are giving ppl a hard time for being tricked. Like it’s not the most believable thing in the world that Disney would cast white ppl in non-white roles. </p> </blockquote> <p>People who get “scared” because they’re too retarded to do their own research when the link is right damn there deserve it tbh.</p> <p>Also calm the fuck down you high-strung looney.

Especially with a very real issue. </p> <p>How would you like a headline that said “Trump to send police to all houses to shoot anyone with “too dark skin””? Or “Trump recreates camps from Hitler’s blueprints”?

Seriously why are y’all acting like this is that deep? If you can’t do the most basic research and assume everything you read on the internet is true, you’re bloody moronic and deserve to be made a fool of. Also stop pretending that those extreme examples you gave are even remotely close to Disney casting a white person in a fucking movie.

Alive, Fall, and Life: "I don't know what I want to do with my life" <- I hear this line so many times from so many different people. First of all, find comfort in knowing you're not the only one who feels like that. But secondly, don't accept not knowing and don't accept your current unfavourable state. Spending your life doing what you hate is a guaranteed recipe for unhappiness. You need to discover what makes you tick? What is your passion? What makes you feel alive? What things do you enjoy? What are you good at? Try and combine all this together and create a career path that is unique to you. If you're not sure, try new activities, speak to new people, search different job descriptions, find mentors, study the blueprints of other individuals, travel, read, explore, volunteer. Things WILL fall into place ONLY after you take practical action! You sitting and sulking is not gonna help your situation. YOU have to take control. Whether that's in achieving what you want or knowing what you want. If you're good enough and do it long enough, you'll make something out of it. But you MUST put in the work!!! Don't complain, don't be pessimistic, don't expect handouts, don't expect overnight results, don't expect everyone to understand you, don't say you don't have time, because you DO! Everyone has the same 24 hours in the day. If need be, sleep less, wake up earlier, stop watching your tv shows, cut your social life, put your phone down, work your absolute face off!!! You only have one shot at this thing called life and it's the longest but shortest thing that will ever pass. Make it count my people!!! 🙌🏻
