I am reading an essay called Male-Male Desire in Pharaonic Egypt (by Alex Clayden) which is actually pretty good
I just need to draw attention to this little gem of a pick-up line
Attention, followers: you now know how to write “nice ass” in hieroglyphics.
"I’m Rani . I’m from India - Rajauri and I’ve come alone on my honeymoon."
This really shows the true spirit of the Olympic games. Turkish runner Merve Aydin injured herself during an 800m heat, but still carried on a whole lap visibly in excruciating pain before limping over the finish line and falling to the floor in tears to the cheers of 80,000 fans in the Olympic stadium. Respect
this is still the best story ever told at a talk show
Once upon a time, I decided that it was my solemn obligation to prank my friends before we graduated.
So…I made Hogwarts Acceptance letters. A lot of them. Because who isn’t still waiting for their freaking letter to arrive?
My hand hated me so much. Also, cursive G is the worst.
Letters were posted. All was well.
Until this happened…
This is literally the best thing I have ever seen in my entire life.
The History of Tunisia (Carthage)
Racism and the Rediscovery of Ancient Nubia (“Kush”, from the Christian Bible)
CENTRAL & SOUTH AFRICA
best post ever
and it includes West and Southern African rulers
"But there isn’t any Black princesses! It’s hard to just make one up!"
How are people so thick as to think that Western European royalty is the ONLY Royalty?
Have we got Polynesian royalty on this list? I kinda skimmed it a bit….
List of the Monarchs of Hawai’i (with some European Portraits)
Sadly, colonization kind of destroyed a lot of EVERYthing in Oceania and various Polynesian nations. For example, the Kingdom of Tahiti was “abolished” by France in 1842 (ish), and Tahiti and its protectorates were “annexed” by France.
But the artwork from the Monarchy survives:
Portrait de la reine Pomaré (Queen Pomare of Tahiti), Charles Giraud, 1852.
You can read a bit more about monarchies and former monarchies in Oceania and Polynesia, including many nations of Black indigenous folks and their kings, queens, princesses, et cetera, here. Most of them have been “replaced” with European monarchs, and/or are considered basically “colonies” of European nations even to this day.

Those who say the Black Widow’s fighting style is just movie bullshit can see the above. ^ Shit is terrifyingly real.
I think I’m in love.
She’s so tiny.
But she could kill me.
I will reblog this flying head scissors every time it comes on my dash because it’s so fucking awesome.
