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

Repost this anywhere
I love the fact that this isn’t gender-specific
SO MUCH TRUTH <3
when you find a very funny meme
when you show your friend the humorous meme
and he also has a giggle at it
I’ve never been more emotional about any social media post in my entire life
UPDATE: guys Beth Broderick tweeted yesterday that this Salem is THE SAME SALEM!!! He’s 20 years old man!!!! 20!
That Salem is still kicking is all I care about.
THE OFFICIAL THEME IS OUT YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS
i fucking hate tumblr so much seriously
you guys are always like “i want equality!” except gay people are better than straight people and women are better than men and poc are better than white people and trans people are better than cis people
if you claim you want equality, but put someone down because they’re privileged, that doesn’t make you an advocate for equality, it makes you an asshole
What… the… FUCK?!
School logic. You protect yourself and others and get punished because you choose to act rather than be silent and let them do whatever they want. Its the policy they have for everything, from bullying to this.
okay what the actual fuck
Yep if someone hits you you get suspended whether you hit back or not
Seriously, even 10 years ago, when I was in high school, this shit happened. I got suspended for GETTING PUNCHED IN THE FACE because I was involved. I was the victim of violence and it was terrible. I got suspended to the point where I actually BECAME the bully to protect myself. I am not proud of that, but it was survival for me more than the actual act of bullying.
Got detention in the sixth grade for tapping a guy on the head, who in return punched me so hard I saw stars.
Sad part is I could tell the teachers didn’t want to punish me, but HAD to follow protocol
My school tried to tell us that if you were being attacked you had to curl up into a ball and let them hit you. Literally, the rule was you had to curl up into a ball and allow yourself to be hit.
NOT YOUR SHIELD …OF …SOMETHING FOOD RELATED…FUCK I DUNNO
