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

qarnaim asked: Hey, do you know where that info on Cleopatra came from? Because everything I've ever been able to find has said that her mother was Cleopatra-V-Tryphaena, her father, Ptolemy-XII-Auletes' cousin. Both members of a !!Racist, Inbred, Colonizing!! Greek(with possibly a little Persian but no coptic) dynasty. Her speaking Egyptian does not actually necessitate Egyptian ancestry, and if there is any new information, we'd all like to see something other than just begging-the-question type statements.

*smacks forehead*

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?:

image

Okay now look at this part very carefully:

image

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:

image

Got it? Okay, let’s grab the book. you can get your very own copy of it here.

Got your book?

image

Alright. Now, let’s carefully turn to PAGE 11:

image

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:

image

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!

image

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.

qarnaim asked: Uh no. I'm talking about sources for the INFORMATION, -ANY- reasoning, evidence, or records at ALL. Ancient rumors even. Literally nothing in that says anything other than that people have **assumed** she was "oh one sixteenth cherokee princess". I saw that, yes, people have made statements with absolutely nothing to back it up. You realize Shakespeare wasn't a contemporary of Cleopatra, right? People *really* want Cleopatra to be african, and not just some racist-ass inbred greek queen right?

"Ancient Rumors"….someone help….

image

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.

qarnaim asked: Shameful. Do your research before you post unsourced, uninformed statements BY OTHER PEOPLE. Having a source to some idiot saying something that goes against literally all of the historical records, contemporary statements, etc. Does not actually make it legitimate information. WHY is everyone so adamant about throwing the truth out the window when it comes to Cleopatra? She was an INBRED GREEK WOMAN. ***WE HAVE THE RECORDS FROM WHEN SHE WAS ALIVE.***

medievalpoc:

I literally had to do the research for you

And then I had to do it FOR you again

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.

12:00am October 21, 2014

I’d also like to point out something important

medievalpoc:

The quote that this person is so frigging hot and bothered about?

WAS THAT WE DON’T KNOW WHAT SKIN COLOR CLEOPATRA HAD.

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.

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
