you know, apart from the fact that Stephen Dillane has played both of them, I can’t think of a single similarity between Thomas Jefferson and Stannis Baratheon
I mean, Jefferson would be a Tyrell, right?I once put him under House Baratheon but I’m now inclined to agree he’s a Tyrell. Still think Hamilton’s a Stark, Burr a Lannister, and Adams a Tully tho.
Who would be a Targaryen then?King George III
So they could see their opponents approaching!
You still get upset thinking about the Fourth Crusade.
New biographies get you excited.
You get angry about an event that occurred in the life of your favorite historical figure 150 years ago…
You hate it when academics talk smack about your favorite historical person, and respond with an essay high at least six in text citations.
Your favorite historical period got hijacked by the Tea Baggers and it really pisses you off because you can’t wear AmRev stuff without being associated with those assholes.
You have a crush on someone who’s been dead for over two hundred years
- Classy women
- Guys being gentlemen
- Cute ass relationships
- Cold War
- Constant threat of nuclear war
But I mean the vintage bombshelters are sooo totally cute
this post is literally the best thing i’ve ever seen
Girls pose by a jail that recalls the witch trials of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. Photo taken in 1945.
I recently learned that the water in Salem was contaminated with the fungus from which LSD is derived and a legitimate theory for the whole thing is that everyone in the town was tripping balls
This might be the greatest thing ive ever seen on the internet
We did a whole massive thing on this in history. I believe the fungus in question is called Ergot and it’s terrifying. It makes your muscles spasm so when they had seizures that was the reason, not because they were possessed. One woman had to be strapped to her bed, she was seizing so bad. And, like ‘theybuildbuildings’ said, it had the same effects as LSD; as soon as you touch it, let alone consume it, it messes with your entire system. The worst thing is, you practically always had a bad trip. Many complained about bugs crawling under their skin or monsters emerging from the shadows to scratch and bite at them until they were screaming. It was a horrendous thing and the worst part is, Ergot is still around. It grows on crops and, if your wheat isn’t properly treated, it can be eaten and you’ll most likely experience the same as the women of Salem.
god i love history
You know what I’m sick of? People excusing Justin Bieber’s behavior because he’s a nineteen-year-old boy. Last time I checked, it was a bunch of nineteen-year-old boys who stormed Normandy and freed France from Nazi occupation.
Why doesn’t this have more notes?
