I guess I remember what it was like to not be furious all the time I think

Thousands of Kurdish refugees have crossed the border into Turkey to avoid the threat of ISIS occupation in Kobane, Kurdistan/ Syria, fleeing the imminent attack by Islamic State militants who have seized dozens of villages close to the border and are advancing on to Kurdish towns.

The refugees were forced to wait for several days in Tal Abyad while Turkish authorities considered their fate. The border was opened around Friday noon.

About 60,000 Kurds have crossed into Turkey in the past 24 hours, a deputy prime minister said on Saturday.

my god these people were just trying to live their lives I’m so furious

"In 100 years we have gone from teaching Latin and Greek in high school to teaching Remedial English in college."

Joseph Sobran (1946-2010) American Journalist  (via philosophicalconservatism)

This makes it sound like English is dying out because it was replaced by Latin and Greek.

In all seriousness though, how many schools taught classical languages 100 years ago? Definitely not the one room schoolhouses my grandparents and great-grandparents attended out here. My grandmother didn’t even wear shoes to school. That was the American West in 1914. They weren’t learning Latin, and most of the boys were leaving school semi-literate when they were brawny enough to work the fields.

tru and also this kind of academic snobbery is why it’s almost impossible for anyone who didn’t attend a fancy schmancy private or public school where Latin and Greek were taught to succeed as an undergraduate or higher in classics or a related field. unfair and gross that these kind of gateways are set up so early in student’s lives

"The Jewish people fell from the heights because of their faithlessness and condemned their Redeemer to a shameful death. Their godlessness has assumed such forms that, for the salvation of our own people, it becomes necessary to prevent their disease. Besides usury, through which Jews everywhere have sucked dry the property of impoverished Christians, they are accomplices of thieves and robbers; and the most damaging aspect of the matter is that they allure the unsuspecting through magical incantations, superstition, and witchcraft to the Synagogue of Satan and boast of being able to predict the future. We have carefully investigated how this revolting sect abuses the name of Christ and how harmful they are to those whose life is threatened by their deceit. On account of these and other serious matters, and because of the gravity of their crimes which increase day to day more and more, We order that, within 90 days, all Jews in our entire earthly realm of justice—in all towns, districts, and places—must depart these regions."

Pope St. Pius V (From his Bull, “The Jewish Race,” Feb.26, 1569; PAC, p.648)

Hi, I am very impressed with your blog, and would like your input on something. I am running a Vampire game set in Hungary 1 year before the Mongolian invasion. I was wondering what other ethnicities would be present in the area?


you’re doing a game about VAMPIRES

But you need to fact check “other ethnicities”?

… ethnicities….other than vampire?


OMG SHUT UP literally what is the matter with the person running this blog

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.
