Crime, Life, and Death: PR
we think Greeks were a very rational people and
all until we learn about the Buphonia, an Athenian
ritual where a laboring ox had to be sacrificed but
at the same time, this was considered a terrible
crime. so when the priest killed it with an axe, he
had to throw it aside and get the fuck out of there
running for his life. then the rest of the people
discovered the crime scene and blamed the axe,
the only one present. the axe was immediately
carried before the court of the Prytaneum which
charged the axe with having caused the death of
the ox. sometimes it was absolved, others, it was
thrown into the sea,
You cannot tell me they didn't do all of this with a
sense of humor.
Oh those Greeks

Okay but after seeing this I started doing it too and it’s amazing how many men I’ve run into bc they expected me to move
Gotta try it
I work (and walk) on a college campus. I’ve lost count of how many men I’ve smacked shoulders with.
Recently, I was standing outside my son’s classroom waiting to talk to his teacher. I stood on one side of the hallway, not even close to the center. At some point, a man came walking along. I was standing right in his path, but the hallway was empty, so I logically expected him to swerve around me. Instead he kept walking right toward me, got to me, and stopped, as if waiting for me to get out of his way. I didn’t; I just smiled politely at him. He finally walked around me, clearly annoyed that I hadn’t leapt out of his manly path.
Now I’m wishing I’d leapt aside, taken off my jacket and laid it on the floor before him, then bowed deeply and said, “My Liege!”
I also work at a college campus. I smack shoulders sometimes, but I find that if I stare straight ahead and follow the advice below, people get the heck out of the way.
Honestly this post changed how I carry myself when walking alone in public, or in a situation where I’m the one leading. People definitely move for the murder gaze.
Confirmed. I once had to rush back inside a convention hall as the con was closing in order to a retrieve a sick friend’s medication, and I didn’t understand why people in the crowd were jumping out of my way (literally—one guy vaulted a table) until I realized I was dressed as the Winter Soldier and doing the Murder Walk because that’s just how I walk in those boots. I got the meds, got out, and made a mental note.
I repeated the experiment later, wearing the boots but otherwise my usual clothing and mimicking the expression I thought I’d had at that moment. People parted like I was Charlton Heston.
I now wear that style of boots whenever possible. I recently had a man do a double-take as I walked by and ask me, politely, where I had served because I “looked like a soldier.” I’m not current or former military. I was wearing a flowy purple peasant top and looked as un-soldierlike as possible.
Moral of the story: wear comfortable shoes, square your shoulders, and walk like you’ve been sent to murder Captain America.
WALK LIKE YOU’VE BEEN SENT TO MURDER CAPTAIN AMERICA
It’s called the Murder Strut.
IT’S BACK!!!!!! I was searching for this to show my daughter the other day and couldn’t find it. I’m so glad IT’S BACK!! I will always reblog the Murder Strut!!
A guy on a bike went around me because he could tell I had no intention of moving. Thanks to this post.
This post went from Scientific to Feminist to Educational to HILARIOUS!
#make men get the fuck out of the way 2k17
I do this now. Stand my ground. Men look flabberghasted that i wont move out of the way. The most annoying thing is when i’m walking along holding Superpups hand (he’s 2.5 years old), and people walk right up to us and expect to go between us… so for me to let go of my toddlers hand for the sake of them. One person i actually had to put my free hand out and onto their chest to block the person to stop before they ploughed into us.
I was waiting at traffic lights, using this advice to make people go around me and some guy asked me if I knew that I looked like a bitch and I just looked him dead in the eye with the murder gaze until he carried in walking. Such a creep, going up to a 15 year old and expecting her to smile and move out of the way.

they had the oldest, noisiest,
crappest planes in the entire

their missions, so they had
to climb out on the wings
mid flight to restart the

so noisy that to stop
germans from hearing them

their anti aircraft guns,
they'd climb up to a certain
height, coast down to
german positions, drop their
bombs, restart their
engines in midair, and get
the fuck out of dodge.
