The Gripping Saga
Made rebloggable for Steven
Jumping to conclusions, one ask at a time.
I’m reblogging this not because of the humor, nor for sexuality reasons, but because the anon was actually reached with evidence! There is hope that people will acknowledge when their presuppositions are wrong and then there’s this that proves it!
When he was 2 years old, he fell out of a second story window and fractured his skull
When he was 6 years old, he mistakenly drank boric acid.
When he was 9 years old, he fell over a small cliff and broke his leg.
When he was 11 years old, he contracted measles and was in a coma for nine days.
When he was 14 years old, he broke his arm when he caught it in a carriage door.
When he was 19 years old, he was struck on the head by a falling brick.
When he was 23 years old, he almost died from the effects of tainted wine.
When he was 29 years old, Adolph Sax invented the saxophone.
clearly someone didn’t want that saxophone invented
THIS NEEDS TO BE A 300-PAGE SCI-FI NOVEL BECAUSE I WOULD READ THE HELL OUTTA THAT
Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”
Nicolaus Copernicus: Born February 19, 1473; Died: May 24, 1543: Toward the close of 1542, Copernicus was seized with apoplexy and paralysis, and he died at age 70.
Legend has it that he was presented with the final printed pages of his De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres) on the very day that he died, allowing him to take farewell of his life’s work. He is reputed to have awoken from a stroke-induced coma, looked at his book, and then died peacefully.
Giordano Bruno: Born in 1548; Death: February 17, 1600: Burned naked at the stake for multiple “crimes” against the church. Giordano Bruno (born Filippo Bruno), was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and astrologer.
He is celebrated for his cosmological theories, which went even further than the then-novel Copernican model: while supporting heliocentrism, Bruno also correctly proposed that the Sun was just another star moving in space, and claimed as well that the universe contained an infinite number of inhabited worlds, identified as planets orbiting other stars.
After his death he gained considerable fame, particularly among 19th- and early 20th-century commentators who regarded him as a martyr for science, though scholars emphasize that Bruno’s astronomical views were at most a minor component of the theological and philosophical beliefs that led to his trial.
Soooo freakin’ adorable!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

Just got back from dinner with my best friend and his wife. We went to a Chinese place. When we were reading our fortune cookies, she started talking about our horoscope (we’re the same sign). Somehow the conversation switched to the Illuminati and some cockamamie conspiracy theory. We also discussed Ouija boards.
She’s religious, so of course she believes all of the above.
The gullibility. It hurts.
If her religion is one of the Abrahamic ones, she’s betraying her god by giving any credence at all to the above mentioned things! smh That’s the problem with being infected with even just one delusion: makes the mind susceptible to all pseudo-sciences, superstitions, and myths…. Makes for fun dinner conversation though, doesn’t it! :)
I do as often as possible
10/10 recommended haha
Excellent advice, especially on tumblr: how many blog naked or mostly naked? And World Garden Naked Day is coming up (first Saturday in May)!

We’re no strangers to trolling, you know the rules and so do I, a follow and comment’s what I’m thinking of, you wouldn’t get this from any other blog.
I just wanna tell you how I’m feeling, gotta make you understand….

I’m building a collection of pieces like this for when I finally tell my mother I’m atheist.
what if when you killed someone you gained their best trait
#you think you’re killing someone for their brain and you get their nose instead #you think you’re killing someone for their strength and you get their baking skills instead #you think you’re killing someone for their cunning and you get their ability to parallel park (via crazyassmurdererwall)
Or you kill them for their intelligence and you get nothing.
My mum said if I got more than 600,000 notes I was allowed to adopt a chinchilla.
I tried this last year, but I only managed 8 notes.
She believes that there’s no way tumblr cares that much.
Everyone’s getting fluffy animals and I feel sad because no one wants me to have a chinchilla :(
you’re getting a chinchilla ok those things are adorable
let’s do this folks
Did you know chinchilla’s take baths in sand not water?
