Tumblr Teaches History

I reblog this for the anon who once sent me an ask telling me there was no such thing as a history fandom on tumblr.

I can’t decide which is the funniest, the Austrian army fighting itself, or the Irish joke.  And before you hate me, I will tell you that the Irish portion of my family was the most recent portion of my family to come to this country, in 1860, so we know from no potatoes.

And the Scots portion came over in 1745 knowing one day they would get another bite at the English, and they did.  And the Pennsylvania Dutch came over around that time, for bigger farms and religious freedom.  I’m glad they can’t tune in to television and radio now.

And our Onondaga portion met the boats, not happily.

History: you either laugh or you cry.

This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success. The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?” In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.” To read Chatterjee’s op-ed on The World, visit http://bit.ly/1u3fvGZPhoto credit: Manjunath Kiran/AFP/Getty Images

hollllllllllly.

Holy sweet baby jesus



now this man is either dead or just old as hell but lord he was something else.

who is thiss someone message me!!!

he was my boyfriend in the 1960’s. im immortal

that´s marlon brando 

And this is Brando.

And this.

And this.


It depresses me that people didn’t know who this was.

Fun fact:  this is the same guy who got pretty pissed at one of his directors and retaliated by refusing to ever wear pants on set, so the director had to work around only filming him from the waist up.

He was also active during the civil rights movement, to the point where he was even at the March on Washington 

(That’s him with activist/author James Baldwin)
He sent a native american woman in his place at the oscars to accept his award because he was angry about the treatment of native americans in this country and in the industry. 
Oh and he was also allegedly bi sexual 

there’s no alleged…he was bisexual. James B also wanted the D.

imagine a vampire going “fuck it” and just taking some antihistamines before going to town on a plate of garlic bread

later on it’s wheeled into the ER with like a puffed up face and it just goes “I have been on this earth 10 thousand years but i have not lived until this day”
