Night Vale dropping some truth
When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question. Because it’s assumed that I have at least one and no more than one mother in my life AND that she married AND that she gave up her own name AND that that part of her identity was erased enough from my public history so as to be a password to access my private information.
Holy crap, I never realized.
SO I FOUND OUT SOMETHING HILARIOUS ABOUT NEWT AND HERMANN TODAY :
so like. if someone has two doctorates, you basically have to call them “Dr. Dr. (Name)”
And if someone is a professor and has a doctorate, you would call them “Professor Dr. (Name)”
you can see where this is going
how long did hermann spend calling newt “professor dr. dr. dr. dr. dr. dr. geiszler”
and by the time he’s to the second dr. newt’s just like I WILL KILL YOU
LOL man.never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,
Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?
because white people have made sure that everything is about race
as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.
Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)
Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.
And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers
Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.
^ and this is only on the topic of travel - let’s not begin with medicine, astronomy, mathematics and so on.

For the people who still think Hussie has no basic knowledge of astrology and divination, I see your hate knives
and raise you a fucking spade
because the corresponding suit in playing cards to knives (usually swords) of tarot is the suit of spades and we all know Slick is a stab-happy little bastard in all his forms.

A simple sea spell for protection when traveling over a body of water.
Aquamarine is believed to be a treasure from mermaids, a birthstone for the Astrological water sign Pisces, and was also worn by sailors who believed that possessing it while sailing would help protect…
This is a great spell jar or spell bag to upkeep a happy and tranquil atmosphere in your house, apartment, bedroom, dorm room, hotel room, or wherever else you may be staying. It’s made for indoor spaces, so it should work for any indoor space, including offices or lockers as well.
This is great if you’ve just moved into a new place and want to start things out well, of if there’s been a lot of tension or bad energy at home that you want to deal with. If you have witchy friends, this spell has no connection to the caster, and can be given away to others as a gift and have just the same effect. It would make a great gift for housewarming, or for the coming holiday season.

Jude Law: Oh, I love him. I love him.
Interviewer: Yeah? You had a bit of a bromance going on there.
Jude Law: What is this new term everyone is using?
Jude Law: Oh, it’s a horrible term. What about just a romance?
Interviewer: No, it’s not the same.
Jude Law: Why not? Why?
Interviewer: Cause then you’d have to star in a romantic comedy together or something.
Jude Law: We just have. Have you not seen it? [x]
Jude Law does not have time for any of that ‘No Homo’ bullshit…

I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society
