Commonly confused medieval weapons, a powerpoint by me.
Now stop screwing them up, seriously, or I will put a medieval weapon in your head.
Tumblr is endearing me to being lectured at in Comic Sans
THIS is a WAR SCYTHE, a scythe actually used in combat. Notice it is not a useless piece of shit and is an actual functional weapon.
The only reason why death is pictured with a FARMING scythe is because he harvests souls.
OMFG MAI AND TY LEE LOOK AT EACHOTHER
BLESS YOU BRYKE
IT’S ALWAYS THE SMALL THINGS
I’m so sick of seeing the “keep calm” meme. It’s overused so much and I want to rip my eyes out every time I see it. What the hell is the crown for? Just…what. What to this whole meme. It doesn’t make sense. For my college’s graduating class this year, they want to make shirts that say “Keep calm and graduate!” Why? Why should they keep calm? Why should anyone keep calm? I’m confused, annoyed, and a little pissed off.
The crown is there because it’s a Second World War British propaganda poster. It was never actually used during the war but was revived here recently and made a tonne of money
Ah but do you know the whole story because it is epic?
The Keep Calm poster was distributed to post offices. It was to be put up in the event of an invasion. That’s why it was never used. It had two jobs - to reassure the general public and to act as a signal to the resistance. Because Britain had a resistance all ready to go.
It was called “the Rascals” and was made up of people who for one reason or another couldn’t join the regular forces - too old, reserved occupation, women, not fit enough or whatever. They had weapon caches hidden away, special training, and two weeks of supplies cause they weren’t expected to live longer than that.
Had the posters ever gone up it was the signal for them to drop out of regular life and open their sealed orders. Each one had a list of places to be sabotaged or people to be killed. Top of the assassination list was the guy who came up with the idea because the idea was too important to fall into enemy hands. Many of the Rascals would have had to assassinate the very person who recruited them to preserve the cell structure.
It had a sister poster. Same font, same crown, dark green background and it said “Freedom is in peril. Defend it with all your might.” It was also a signal. It went up just before d-day as a warning to those people involved in convincing the Germans that the invasion of Europe would begin at Calais rather than Normandy.
Apparently this is "The clearest photo of Mercury ever taken."
why isnt everyone getting so excited about this, it is literally another planet look at how beautiful it is stop what your doing and look at how alien like this planet is what is living there oh my god mercury
and guess what in space they pick categories when they have a lot of things to name like the craters on mercury. the category for naming them is after deceased artists
Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better!
(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)
I love that this is on the Smithsonian’s tumblr
Whoever does social media for the Smithsonian is awesome.
