SHARE to help turn this around. Frankly, I’m embarrassed for my generation. Whether it’s apathy, conspiracy theories, or just laziness, we need this to change.

Tell any professor of government that your vote doesn’t matter and they’ll laugh.

Don’t like the candidates? Fine, just write one in. If everyone did that the next election would look wildly different because our generation would matter to those who wish to run our government.

Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and shag a nun.

(via Feminism)

bisexual opera singer who killed ten men and snuck into a convent to shag a nun.

Just so y’all know, she later set that convent on fire so she and that nun could sneak out. And she seduced one of the men she’d dueled.

Also, dueling was a serious crime during her life, but the king of France essentially overturned her conviction on the grounds that the relevant law specifically referred to men. 

how has there never been a million stories about this badass

Lee Min Ho 20141017 GUESS 팬사인회 part2

Okay this video is too good not to share.  I’m not sure why I’m totally fascinated by Lee Min Ho.  It’s the same kind of fascination I have for babies, and baby animals but more so.  The closest thing I can liken it to is an elementary school crush — which is really weird to say when I’m 55.  What I mean is that it’s a really powerful attraction, but not a sexual attraction.  I don’t “have the hots” for Minho.  That part of me isn’t what is drawn to him. But it’s really powerful. It’s a sort of spirit-mind-feeling attraction that makes me love watching him and care about him.  It gives watching his dramas something extra special because I’m so captured by his charisma that there’s a sort of powerful instantaneous connection to his character whenever he’s on screen.  Does anybody else know what I’m talking about?

In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.

The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.

The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.

He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
