EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

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.

Don’t think about the Library of Alexandria.
Don’t think about the Library of Alexandria.

DEBI JACKSON, MOTHER OF TRANSGENDER CHILD, GIVES MOVING SPEECH

The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”

So watch the full video to see her answers to those difficult questions here.

This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive. 

not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend

REBLOGGING because after a little digging, I found my $200 textbook for free in PDF form.

friendly reminder that this exists since I know we’re all going back to college soon

reblogging for reference as much for myself as everyone else because fuck I have to pay rent this year unless I want to end up back and home and/or stuck on my parents’s forever

Aeris’ death in FFVII is one of my favorite examples of how to do character-death in a story correctly and how to have a female character die without giving up her agency. She didn’t die to create angst for Cloud (Cloud was already a spikey little ball of it) and she didn’t die to give anyone motivation to hunt down Sephiroth—they were already hunting him. She died because if Sephiroth hadn’t killed at that point in time, she would defeated him all on her own. Aeris died because she was a legitimate threat. And even after death, everyone else fucks up so the HBIC has to reach out from grave to save their asses—and continues to do so into Advent Children! If Sephiroth hadn’t killed her, she would’ve beat the game at disc one, and probably used the next two discs to take over Shinra, clean up the Midgar slums, establish new, reliable, eco-friendly energy for the world, which crowns her as Empress and begins a new Golden Age.
