soulmate AU where you wake up on your 18th birthday with the first words your soulmate will say to you tattooed on your body so you’ll know them when you meet them
admittedly, there are a few bugs in the system
I think its perfect.
Fill your heart with secrets but the only way to read them is if you break your heart.
i will forever reblog this
i need me one of these.
OMG I WANT ONE
i think every couple should get one and fill it with the little things they love about each other. and then if they’re fighting throw it at a wall and read all the little things that come out and hopefully that will remind them to love again.
asdfghjkl reblogging for that ^
This is sick! Very creative
This has to be the ultimate proof that people just…don’t understand…what “sources” are. I literally gave you a page. number.
look, here we’ve got the post, right?:
Okay now look at this part very carefully:
That’s the name of the book and all the information you need to find the book. And I give you the PAGE on which you can find this information, okay? Here:
Got it? Okay, let’s grab the book. you can get your very own copy of it here.
Got your book?
Alright. Now, let’s carefully turn to PAGE 11:
Okay, let’s look around for a minute to see if it says anything about CLEOPATRA, and if you’re using the PDF, you can use the search function of whatever PDF viewer you use to search out relevant terms!
Here we go:
Whoa, there it is! Right on page 11!
But wait, what about the rest of that stuff? Well, it says “7” right after “Greek”, so let’s check it out at the bottom of the page, where the footnotes are listed with numbers so you can find them easily!
Here we go!
WE DID IT!!!! WE FOUND WHERE THAT INFORMATION CAME FROM!
Now can we please, please, PLEASE stop pretending like all the information I have here was either pulled out from my butt at random, or somehow is just UTTERLY unsourcable, unfindable, or inherently mysterious, or “questionable” or otherwise just floating around with no rhyme or reason whatsoever. Okay? Okay.
"Ancient Rumors"….someone help….
1. An entire other book specifically about Cleopatra published by Princeton University Press compiled from leading scholars in the field
2. A citation from Plutarch, a contemporaneous Greek Biographer, about her appearance
3. Portraits (multiple!) now thought to be of her by art historians and Classicists working in the field.
4. An additional specific marble bust portrait of her which you can go and look at in the Staatliche Museum in Berlin, Germany
5. Which you can cross-reference with portraits of her on coins minted in her lifetime
6. and in addition you can read more about in a whole OTHER book about specifically the Ptolemaic Empire
Please let the record show that there is literally nothing more I can do to help this person.
And you still are going to believe what you WANT to believe.
I really, truly hope that every single last one of my readers sees this and understands that there is absolutely NOTHING that will change people minds when they WANT to believe something.
And this ^^^ is why “curing ignorance” isn’t always the answer to the issues I bring up on this blog.
I’d also like to point out something important
The quote that this person is so frigging hot and bothered about?
Because anything less than “white as the driven snow” is apparently just too much for some people to handle.
And yes, they are still going on in my inbox, but it’s degenerated to name calling and more sourceless assertions decorated with asterisks. I think we can hopefully move on.
PLEASE READ AND REBLOG!!!!!
Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr’s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.
This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It’s a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage.
If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won’t stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.
I don’t care what your blog theme is, this can save someone’s life and needs to be spread
