So, these two met on my blog and it looked quite extraordinary.
I JUST FUCKING PISSED MYSELF IT FUCKING LOOKED AT ME JFC
so my girlfriend has had a shiny luvdisc for the longest fucking time and no matter how hard i would try i could NEVER CATCH/BREED ONE OF MY OWN and she would always tease me about it and it drove me nuts
turns out she bred a male counterpart for her female (in a love ball no less), trained him up to level 100, nicknamed him, and sent him to me.
IF THIS ISN’T LOVE THEN WHAT IS
this is why i have trust issues
Traces of coca and nicotine found in Egyptian mummies - WTF fun facts
well DUH. a lot of historians are still trying to process the fact that ancient egyptians knew how to build boats, which is ridiculous. why would they not be seafarers and explorers?
this is not new or surprising information at all. it pretty much day one of any african-american studies course.
the egyptians knew that if they put their boats in front of the summer storm winds it’d blow them right across the sea to the Americas and they shared that with the greeks.
It’s really hard for people to understand that everyone had boats, exploration, and trade interactions without the same level of murder, colonization, and violence that the Europeans did. It’s really hard for people to get that.
The Sea-Craft of Prehistory (book; Eurocentric as heck)
Scientific Evidence for Pre-Columbian Transoceanic Voyages (273 pages-for the hardcore only!):The only plausible explanation for these findings is that a considerable number of transoceanic voyages in both directions across both major oceans were completed between the 7th millennium BC and the European age of discovery. Our growing knowledge of early maritime technology and its accomplishments gives us confidence that vessels and nautical skills capable of these long-distance travels were developed by the times indicated. These voyages put a new complexion on the extensive Old World/New World cultural parallels that have long been controversial.
