Poland Poland, tell us your secret. Poland is the old new Madagascar.  If I remember correctly, Poland’s secret is that the jews where being blamed all over europe (as usual) as scapegoats for the black plague. Poland was the only place that accepted Jewish refugees, so pretty much all of them moved there.  Now, one of the major causes of getting the plague was poor hygiene. This proved very effective for the plague because everyone threw their poop into the streets because there were no sewers, and literally no one bathed because it was against their religion. Unless they were jewish, who actually bathed relatively often. When all the jews moved to Poland, they brought bathing with them, and so the plague had little effect there. Milan survived by quarantining its city and burning down the house of anyone showing early symptoms, with the entire family inside it.  I reblogged this tons of times, but the Milan info is new. Damn Italy, you scary. Poland: “Hey, feeling a bit down? Have a quick wash! There, you see? All better” Milan: “Aw, feeling a bit sick are we? BURN MOTHERFUCKER, BURN!!!!!” Also, this might have something to do with it: from what I understand, O blood type is uncommonly… common in Poland. Something to do with large families in small villages and a LOT of intermarriage. The black plague was caused by a bacterium that produced, in its waste in the human body, wastes that very closely mimic the “B” marker sugars on red blood cells that keep the body from attacking its own immune system. Anyone who has a B blood type had an immune system that was naturally desensitized to the presence of the bacterium, and therefore was more prone to developing the disease. Anyone who had an O type was doubly lucky because the O blood type means the total absence of ANY markers, A or B, meaning that their bodys’ immune system would react quickly and violently against the invaders, while someone with an A may show symptoms and recover more slowly, while someone with B would have just died. Because O is a recessive blood type, it shows in higher numbers when more people who carry the recessive genes marry other people who also carry the recessive gene. Poland, which has a nearly 700 year history of being conquered by or partnering with every other nation in the surrounding area, was primarily an agricultural country, focused around smaller, farming communities where people were legally tied to, and required to work, “their” land, and so historically never “spread” their genes across a large area. The economy was, and had been, unstable for a very long period of time leading up to the plague, the government had been ineffective and had very little reach in comparison to the armies of the other countries around for a very very long time, and so its people largely remained in small communities where multiple generations of cross-familial inbreeding could have allowed for this more recessive gene to show up more frequently. Thus, there could be a higher percentage of O blood types in any region of the country, guaranteeing less spread of the illness and moving slower when it did manage to travel. Combine this with the fact that there were very few large, urban centers where the disease would thrive, and with the above facts, and you’ve got a lovely recipe for avoiding the plague. Interestingly enough, as a result from the plague, the entirety of Europe now has a higher percentage of people with O blood type than any other region of the world.  WHY IS THIS ALL SO COOL When Tumblr teaches you more about the plague than 12 years of school ever did. Just to throw a nod in, as a medieval historian, this is all credible, and is the leading theory as to the plagues effectiveness at this point. So. Enjoy your new knowledge!

She single-handedly saved her two children from a plane explosion fter piloting the HELL out of a government jet. She then all but single-handedly saved her husband (Mirage beat her to it by milliseconds). And to top it off, she let herself be thrown at least 40 meters into the air to save her baby that was in free fall. Bob may have been out there kicking ass and looking good Incredible throughout that entire movie. It's like she said in the beginning of the movie doing it, but ElastiGirl was Mrs. Fucking at the top of my game! I'm right up there with the big dogs! Girls, come on!

But, while he was trying to e a superhero again, she was at home, being a supermother to her chaotic superpowered children and a superwife to her suspicious a ing husband, even as evidence started piling up that painted Bob's recent actions in an un- flattering light.

Lawyer, Meek Mill, and Memes: Meek Mill Granted Post Conviction Hearing @balleralert Meek Mill Granted Post Conviction Hearing-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Rapper Meek Mill has officially been granted a post-conviction hearing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The same judge who previously sentenced him to two to four years for a probation violation, Judge Genece Brinkley of the Common Pleas Court, has now granted the Philly native a post-conviction hearing due to possible corruption of Meek’s original 2008 case. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to previous reports, the rapper’s original 2007 arrest may have involved some corruption as well, and on Feb.14, his attorneys filed a Post-Conviction Relief Act petition concerning his original arrest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has a secret list of suspect police officers who are not deemed as credible witnesses, one of them being Reginald Graham, a testifying officer in Meek’s 2008 trial. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The post-conviction hearing has been scheduled to determine what really happened with Meek’s case. His lawyer is confident that the hearing will result in him being released. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “I mean, there were 800 cases that were dismissed or overturned upon discovery of this group of officers who had been committing crimes, lying about circumstances of arrests, and falsifying documents,” his lawyer said. “One of the officers is the same one who not only arrested Meek but made allegations that Meek has always denied. This is the only one that testified against Meek.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Meek heads to court on April 16.
