EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
Can y’all actually believe a man shot and killed someone and he isn’t in jail yet after nearly a month? Like really let that sink in. A man killed an 18 year old child and he is on paid leave from his job. Really think about that.
*Watches with great interest*
Ohhhhh my goooooooooddddd. Did not think I would like it, but daaaaaaamn.
(I may have cheated and looked things up on wiki, ‘cause I like to spoil things for myself, and I’m STILL into it. (although, CALLED IT.) )
(I’m still watching even though I should go to sleep ‘cause I need to get up at 5…)

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover
My people getting it!
The city of Ferguson deserves this hornets nest. The last tweet is 100 percent true, they’ve lost the ability to govern, and the disrespect they’ve shown to the citizenry is obvious and beyond contempt.
Laverne: Nicole, does your belief system now change, in which you now know you don’t need him to be there?
Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re just realizing that people are capable of doing it. We’re underestimating people because people said we weren’t viable. [x]
"In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit."
- The case for free tampons (via stuffmomnevertoldyou)
You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free. We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS BULLSHIT ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
BUT YOU CAN JUST WALK IN A CLINIC AND BOOM HAVE BA BAJILLION CONDOMS??????? NOT THAT IT’S A BAD THING BUT COULD WE HAVE AFFORDABLE SANITARY SHIT PLEASE
