The little flick of his hand UGH
Bonjour, La Reine du Soleil. ;)
So accurate it hurts…
Nothing wrong with making your dash 100% anime bishonen George.
There is an actual drag queen in this show and George is still rivaling him for sheer preciousness.
This is going to be gloriously campy. I can’t wait.
The camp is strong with this one.
We define bisexuality as attraction to people of the same gender and different genders.
Aaaaactually bisexuality means "attracted to men and women" because the prefix "bi" means "two".
Okay, that's a really narrow and finicky way of examining things, but yes the prefix bi means two. Which means that bisexual people are attracted to two different gender groups. Like, for example, people of the same gender as them and people of a different gender than them. Which is what we said. Our definition of our own sexual orientation is still right even with your narrow and finicky standards applied to it.
Sorry, I didn't catch any of that. I have my entire head and neck firmly lodged up my own ass. Bi means two. Bisexual means
I admit it, you’re right. Nine is the most underrated Doctor.
For anyone in/near London who likes Miles Richardson, he’s currently in the play King Charles III. Where he plays a smarmy, calm and well-dressed political advisor. Who manipulates the media from behind the scenes during a political revolution. While making sarcastic comments about modern art.
So basically if you want to see Irving Braxiatel on an undercover Earth mission here’s your chance.
Hans Rosling’s excellent presentation featuring many awesome data charts: Don’t Panic - The Truth About Population
Something slightly more light hearted than scottish politicians on independence.
The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.
This is beautiful.
I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.
I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it
You don’t really hear much about it because a) it was completed about 4 years ago, so it hasn’t had much time to circulate, b) the statue has garnered more than its fair share of criticism based on its expenses (rounding off at around the equivalent of $27 million), style (the appearance of the individuals represent more idolized cartoons and exaggerated caricatures than its own people), symbolism (many of its own residents as well as the folks that were around during its unveiling have stated it as being “Stalinist”), the revenue that the president of Senegal gets from the project (35% of total profits raised) and the intellectual property he is claiming on it, and the general critiques it is getting from world-renowned artists such as Ousmane Sow (claiming that this piece is anything BUT a symbol of African resistance and nothing to do with art). In addition, the President of Senegal had compared this statue to Jesus Christ (which he later apologized for, but still) and offended more than a handful of the Christian minorities in Senegal (rightfully so, if I may add).
In addition, the President spent the equivalent of $27 million dollars to fund this project using a Roman sculpture/architect and North Korean workers as opposed to using the money toward his country’s basic needs such as FOOD and the COST OF LIVING and ending the near constant and regular power outages/cuts. That’s right, you heard me. SENEGAL’S PEOPLE WOULD RATHER HAVE FOOD AND PREFERABLE CONDITIONS TO LIVE IN BUT THAT PRESIDENT WOULD RATHER SPEND $27 MILLION ON A CARTOONIZED STATUE USING FOREIGN CONTRACTORS, ALL WHILE CLAIMING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND MAKING 35% REVENUE!
This monument is NOT a symbol of Senegal’s resistance towards French occupation and its success. It is a symbol of greed and exploitation as well as negligence of the common people upon which this statue claims to support.
Also, it is, in fact, not larger than the Statue of Liberty or the Eiffel Tower. This monument stands at 49 m, or 160 ft. The Statue of Liberty is 93 m, or 305 feet, and the Eiffel Tower is 301 m, or 986 feet. Commoner’s math shows us that 49 meters is much shorter than 93 and 301 meters.
But what do I know. I just used sources here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. And, perhaps this whole post won’t even be noticed at all by anyone, and I’ll probably be condemned by Tumblr social activists because I dared to use sources in my argument against a project that was done over the well-being of its country’s people, despite this being just as bad as Tumblr’s support for Robert Mugabe. But yeah, krystvega, maybe you shouldn’t try to spread lies like this next time for the sake of exploiting other people’s feelings, especially those as sensitive and misdirected as Tumblr social activists’s and most Tumblr users in general? I’m going to give the benefit of the doubt and say this isn’t exactly what you were trying to do and you were just jumping on the social justice bandwagon, but do please be more careful on stuff like this in the future
Yeah, many of the senegalese friends I spoke to really don’t like it and don’t think it is something to celebrate.
