Giacomo Casanova, one of the most notorious lady killers of history. This man had a special list of foods to feed his lovers depending on their hair colour (e.g., a suggested food for redheads was peppers for their ‘fiery’ nature), and came up up with rather creative ways to feed his lovers oysters.His autobiography, Histoire de ma vie, also gave historians one of the biggest insights into 18th century life.
He also had a variety of different professions during his life, including: a clergyman, a military officer, a violinist, a lawyer, and a librarian.
What a man.
Male privilege is the sexualization of Breast Cancer awareness.
it reminds me of what Randall Munroe said:
“The frustrating thing about the “Save the Boobies” campaign and similar things (like the “Booberday” meme going around G+) is that they get it exactly backward. Often, the point of breast cancer treatment is to destroy some or all of the boobies in order to save the woman.
Saying that we should work to cure this disease because it threatens breasts is really upsetting. For starters, it suggests that women are worth saving because they’re attached to breasts, rather than the other way around. But worse, it tells any woman who’s had a mastectomy to try to save her life that she’s lost the thing that made people care about her survival. What a punch in the stomach.”
god i hhhhhaaaaate this culture surrounding breast cancer awareness month i hate it a lot

This is my newest tattoo, it is from the book “The Little Prince” and I got it as a reminder of how much I love the book and to never let go of my inner child/to not focus on growing up so fast, Tom at Tattoo Asylum in Durham, NC was my artist & he did an amazing job as always :)
“Does that include two pages for the bibliography?”
happy birthday, dear papa…
Done by Ryan Adams from Marvel Tattoo. Starry Starry Night by Van Gogh has always been my favorite painting, but I didn’t know how to get it tattooed on me without it being an awkward rectangle. Cats have always been my favorite animal, and their shape is very graceful, so I combined the two.
being on the highest spot in the house does not make you King in the North.
I know this isn’t an armadillo, but when I saw this picture on I Can Has Cheezburger I couldn’t resist adding this quote from Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper.” And I needed to share it with other English nerds that would find it as funny as I do.
[Picture: Background — black and white cat sitting by wall surrounded with shreds of wallpaper peeled off the wall. Top text: “ [“I’ve got out at last in spite of you and Jane] ” Bottom text: “ [And I’ve pulled off most of the paper so you can’t put me back.”] ”]
