Casual reminder that in one of Leonardo da Vinci’s many notebooks containing innumerable artistic and scientific sketches and notes of incomprehensible important, there is a sketch of two penises with legs and tails walking towards a crudely drawn anus.
The sketch was most likely done by Leonardo’s apprentice Salai, who was not only very likely one of Leonardo’s lovers, but who was also infamously mischievous. Better yet, the anus is literally labeled “Salai.”
So either Salai drew these while Leonardo wasn’t looking just to annoy his boyfriend, or Leonardo himself put actual time and energy into drawing these. Either way, the human race is truly blessed to have made such a discovery.
There are dick drawings like the ones you see on desks in school in Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks. Please cherish this information.

In the midst of exploring Renaissance Italy history for reasons, I have found a wonder.

theshadowwoman said: Can we talk about the fact that Alexander Pierce more than likely grew up with stories about Cap? And more importantly heard stories about Bucky. More than likely he was everywhere. Bucky Barnes and autobiographies, television shows, and then....he controls Bucky Barnes and doesn't even think of him as a person.

LET’S

TALK

ABOUT

VIETNAM

Because ‘Nam is what changes everything.

Because Alex Pierce grew up on the stories of Captain America and the Howling Commandos. He grew up hearing about the friendship between Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes, their heroism, their sacrifice to their country for the greater good.

He joins up for the Army at 18. He’s in Special Forces at 19. He’s in Vietnam in ‘68. He’s in and out for the next 2 years.  He’s there to protect democracy. Freedom. Honor.

It bothers him the first time he shoots an unarmed man. A kid, really. But the village is hiding rebels and an example had to be made. It quits bothering him after a while.

His Captain tells him to not count prisoners until they land back at base. Alex doesn’t understand why.

He does by the time they touch down.

They burn the jungle down around them to find the enemy. They tear down the world and turn it to ash.

He joined up to become a hero. And all he found was chaos.

He comes home disillusioned and bitter and so, so angry, at the lies he was fed, the fairy tales he believed.

Captain America. He was never a hero. He was just a pawn. A shiny distraction the higher ups used to entertain the crowds at home with feats of strength and white-washed newsreels. A trick to get young men to volunteer themselves to die in a jungle with their guts in their hands, with their legs blown off, all for nothing.

It was all a lie.

People will never choose the right thing. They will only choose what will benefit them. Choice is nothing but a path to chaos.

He’s home a month when a small man with a German accent {Swiss, actually, he says} approaches him with a job offer.

The world has gone mad, Mr. Pierce.

Would you like to help me rebuild it?

This is all kinds of yes and NOPE

Harry Potter AU in which Remus Lupin doesn’t leave Hogwarts after Snape tells everyone he’s a werewolf

instead, he fucking stays where he belongs

and, as the howlers start coming, insults exploding at the teacher’s table every morning like clockwork, the students take notice. They see Lupin’s face, and he’s not even angry, he looks fucking resigned to it, like he deserves it.

So, the students take matters into their own hands. 

"You’re the best teacher EVER" is heard on a Monday morning, followed by a “We really like your classes” on Tuesday and “Thanks for being such a cool guy. AND FOR THE CHOCOLATES” on Wednesday.

by Friday, things have escalated to the point that you can’t  go ten minutes without a howler bursting and showering Lupin in compliments.

(It’s a whole month before the fateful “YOU HAVE A VERY CUTE ASS, 10/10 WOULD BANG! ” and the subsequent banning of all howlers for the teachers.

Snape has never looked more constipated in his life.)

thetimesinbetween:

I’ve been trying to do one job application per day since the start of august. we’re 26 days in and I’ve sent out 9 applications (hopefully 10 by the end of the night)—just about 1/3 of what i’m aiming for. (and i’m likely going to have to up it from there unless i strike gold.) 

clearly i’m not doing as well as i’d like, on my own. would anybody like to help keep me on track? ask after my progress daily / often, that sort of thing?

So I’m going to word vomit about this because I just recently got my job and stopped doing this one per day job application plan. I had a couple things that helped me, so um, here they are. 

This sounds like a waste of time, but apply for jobs you don’t really think you can get. One reason to apply for things you don’t feel qualified for is, hey! you never know! Very few people actually meet all points of the job description when they’re applying, so you might actually get an interview or even the job. Another reason to do this, which was actually more important for me, was it helped make doing job applications a habit.

Apply for jobs you don’t actually want all that much, or at all. This is simultaneously a waste of your time and the best thing that I ever did. Whenever I got stressed or depressed or anxious or any other number of messy, unhelpful emotions that made it REALLY DIFFICULT for me to even start on an app, let along finish one, I applied for a job I didn’t actually want or I had no chance in hell of getting. Because then, there was no actual stress involved. I didn’t want the job. I wouldn’t get the job. I was going through the motions so I could say I did the thing. I could say, “Fuck it. This is thing is crap, but I don’t care! Sending it, whoo!” It made everything else less intimidating. So when I needed to apply to a job tomorrow that I actually wanted, I had worked out a lot of the stress and anxiety and could focus on doing a good job on this one. It also helped make the habit of once per day. Because there totally weren’t enough jobs that I really wanted to keep me busy, so mediocre or crappy jobs were necessary for me to just keep up that habit. 

Copy and paste is your friend. I have mainly two resumes that I use. One is the standard, one-page pretty resume I generally sent out, and the other is formatted the same, but has everything I’ve ever done that’s resume worthy. If I needed to change my resume so that it had one experience (working with children) instead of another (campaign fundraising), then I would literally copy and paste from my master and double check the format.  

I did something similar with my cover letter but less pretty. After I had written out a couple of different letters, I kept a file where I kept any substantive variations so that I could copy and paste from them instead of rewriting about how I totally developed customer service type skills at that one job. I only felt a had a handful of strong, useful experiences to use in a cover letter, so after writing a dozen or so, I pretty much did editing and adding a sentence or two specific to the organization or job for new ones. Which is a whole lot less time, work, and stress than writing a whole new one. 

Also, in a more general sense, I found habitrpg.com to be really useful. Other people have done a much better job of explaining it, but it’s basically an RPG type game where your character loses health or gets experience/rewards for the shit that you do in real life. For instance, if I submitted a job app, maybe I would get that dragon egg I really wanted. Or level up so I didn’t die because I ate way too much junk food last week. 

I am REALLY SORRY that was so long, but yeah. Hopefully some of that is useful? Job hunting is HARD and STRESSFUL and SUCKS and you are a winner for doing it. Feel free to ask me if any of that didn’t make sense.

i had a dream last night that i was working at starbucks and steve rogers walked in and ordered an iced americano and i said “one iced americano for the iced americano" and then i woke myself up by laughing too hard at my own joke

“When minor characters who are also ethnic minorities start talking among themselves in their native tongues, they sometimes take advantage of their invisibility to say things. Sometimes they break the Fourth Wall and start ranting about the movie director. Sometimes, they spout random obscenities or natter about their lousy lunch. It’s all in not-English, so whatever they say doesn’t matter! And the actual translations of their lines can be a secret source of hilarity in films where actors are instructed to use a Gratuitous Foreign Language (GFL) in order to make a scene sound more authentic. When some Native Americans cast in Westerns were told to speak their own language to add some authenticity, these actors took the opportunity to crudely editorialize about their director, which allegedly resulted in Native American audiences (in)explicably cracking up laughing during scenes that were meant to be dramatic.”

WALKMAN ADVENTURES IN THE GALAXY.

Well, on my planet, there’s a legend about people like you. It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that dancing, well, it’s the greatest thing there is.
