History is stranger than fiction: schmergo The Lincoln Assassination is really just wild if you think about it for a moment. The younger brother of one of the most famous actors in the country- himself a famous actor and heartthrob in his own right- killed the President in a theatre and yelled "Sic semper tyrannis," a line often associated with Brutus, a character that his brother had famously played. Like, imagine if Liam Hemsworth killed the Prime Minister of Australia at a red carpet movie premiere or something and yelled "I went for the head," and Chris had to leave the Avengers press tour to tell everyone, "I swear I had nothing to do with this." Imagine how weird that would be phdna .a whole history major and yet this post is the first time I've fully appreciated the weirdness of the Lincoln assassination thenameisgreed It's even more bizarre when you remember that said famous older brother, Edwin Booth, actually saved Lincoln's eldest son Robert from being killed/severely maimed when he slipped off a train platform. Now imagine that you're at a crowded train station and you trip and fall between the platform and the train, someone hauls you up and you turn to thank them and realise that your rescuer is none other than famous actor Chris Hemsworth! Wow, that'l be a great story to tell the grand-kids! Then a few months later his younger brother Liam Hemsworth murders your dad, the Prime Minister of Australia History is stranger than fiction

The Tiffany Problem: RE tilthat TIL of the "Tiffany Problem". Tiffany is a medieval name-short for Theophania- from the 12th century. Authors can't use it in historical or fantasy fiction, however, because the name looks too modern. This is an example of how reality is sometimes too unrealistic. via reddit.com incorrectdiscworldquotes "Authors can't use it in fantasy fiction, eh? We'll see about that..." -Terry Pratchett, probably jeneelestrange Try to implement anything but a conservative's sixth grade education level of medieval or Victorian times and you will butt into this. all. the. time. There was a literaly fad in the 1890's for nip- ple rings for all genders(and NO, it was NOT under the mistaken belief that it would help breastfeeding-there's LOTS of doctors' writ- ing at the time telling people to STOP and that they thought it would ruin the breast's ability to breastfeed well, etc). It was straight up because the Victorians were freaks, okay Imagine trying to make a Victorian character with nipple rings.

stranger than fiction: Single Guy From Adelaide I'd like to tell you my story Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. I really am just a genuine guy, looking for love Please watch this video: This site is current, as of December 2018 Please feel free to leave a comment on the guestbook, below The details: Get in touch with me, and we can chat. I'd love to hear from you! We can get to know each other, and, if we're a really good match, then we can start talking travel. I'll organise this. Yes, you can be from overseas. Adelaide is a city of 1.3m, and one of the most liveable cities in the world I'll make sure you have a fantastic life here I've been getting a lot of contacts lately, so I want to help give people an idea of what I'nm looking for. I'm a fun and entertaining person to be around, but I'm also a strongly intellectual kind of a person, and I really need the same in partner. Very few people who contact me are appropriate in this regard. If you're bright, enjoy intellectual conversation, and love using your mind, please contact me. My professional profile is here, if it interests you. The important parts are that I'm an internet entrepreneur, food blogger, investor, and that I studied Genetics at Adelaide University I'm not religious I'm thirty-eight years old. I have the experience and maturity of someone older, but I look younger. If you're looking for someone who has their act together, I'll be a good choice. If you're looking for someone to party with, I'm probably not a good choice. I don't have any specific age range of partner I'm looking for, but anyone much below 25 is probably going to be too young. I'm exacty six feet (183cm) tall, which is taller than 80% of men my age. Women tend to want to know this To make it clear, I'm looking for someone who, like me, hasn't had any sexual experiences of any kind before. I've talked to lots of people now, and many people have complex answers to this question. People have been very open, in telling me about their lives, and sometimes their past has been difficult. I don't want people to have to do this any more, so I need to draw a clear line at any kind of sexual activity, for now I'm currently only able to reply to people who are potential

Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become…habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. - I can’t stress enough that there is a war on consciousness. It’s the one war that no one can see but it’s right there in plain sight. It’s the one that they program your subconscious and conscious mind using subliminal messages, symbolism, numerology, certain narratives and the suppression of human capabilities. - By collectively using all of these methods they have created a society in which the truth sounds stranger than fiction. That most will blindly believe in what they have been told and not what they have experienced. We live in a very strange time to say the least but even with all of this taking place i still find life here as a human to be absolutely beautiful and worth every moment.
