"Mother Gothel’s design makes me uncomfortable. Her dark, thick, curly hair, her sharp nose, and the way her features are generally perceived as more "ethnic" in comparison to all the other human characters in Tangled—it all reminds me of an archetype for Jewish women"

Interesting fact: The stereotypical witch found in fairy tales was usually portrayed as the stereotypical Jew in order to spread anti Semitic propaganda.
This is also where we get the “greedy Jew” stereotype, as goblins, hobgoblins, gnomes and dwarves were also portrayed as the harmful Jewish archetype.
In the middle ages, it was a sin for a Christian to hoard or handle large amounts of money, which left the profitable banking industry open to Jews. It’s ridiculous that Christians created the stereotype to avoid a sin, and this stereotype is still portrayed and spread today

I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS FOR MONTHS especially since if mother gothel looks like a nazi propaganda-esque jewish woman, and she steals the most aryan-looking baby in the kingdom to use its essence in a ceremony…like does that smell like blood libel or am i paranoid

RELEVANT

oh my gawd……………..

oh shit

and I am jewish and I thought the second I saw her “Oh, finally somebody in the movie I CAN cosplay!”…


Also very much a G*psy-style stereotype, what with the baby-stealing and all.  Gross.  But if 
I had to pick out a style icon…

It’s OK to believe in life after love. Cher if u agree

The oldest living thing in the world: These actinobacteria, recovered from the subterranean brrrrr-osphere that is Siberian permafrost, are estimated to be 500,000 years old. While many ancient microbes have been revived from ancient dormant states, these bacterial cells have been continuously living for half a million years. It’s known that the bacteria aren’t mobile in the frozen Earth, so by radioactively dating the layers of soil around the microbes, scientists were able to estimate their age.
Unable to divide and reproduce, these microbes were shown to be actively repairing their DNA despite the frigid temperatures, their enzymes uniquely adapted to an environment that would mean certain death for perhaps every other creature on Earth. While not growing, moving, or reproducing, this sort of cryostasis counts as living if you ask me (and the scientists who study them).
What do you think this means for the possibility of life on other planets?

What’s better than ice cream in ice cream form? Ice cream in cake form!! Check out Hazel Rayson’s Threadcake entry based on “Cold Comfort" by David Olenick.
And heck, it’s Sunday - why not bake a cake and enter Threadcakes yourself? Do it. DO IT!

Pakistani teenager Aitzaz Hasan died Monday after tackling a suicide bomber trying to enter his school. By sacrificing himself, he saved the lives of the 2,000 students studying inside. Hasan’s father says, ”My son made his mother cry, but saved hundreds of mothers from crying for their children.”
This is bravery. This is selflessness. This is true courage.

Here is a beautiful picture of his grave decorated with many flowers. May Allah rest his soul in peace…

rest in power my friend



He accomplished so much in that one selfless act, probably more than any of us ever will.

TIMELAPSE GIFS OF THE BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Photos every 20 min.
Left: Yesterday (8/23), 9:10 a.m. through 4:50 p.m.

Right: Today, 1:10 a.m. through 8:50 a.m.

The Corpse Flower, though in the process of closing, is still GORGEOUS and people are flocking in to see it. SO COOL.

the scientific name for this plant is amorphophallus titanum. the reason its nicknamed the corpse flower is because it literally smells like rotting flesh.

Perhaps the OP deemed it an innappropriate addition, but the binomial nomenclature means literally “massive deformed penis,” if I’m not mistaken. Gosh, I love corpse plants!
