Practically Perfect in Every Way

Classics. History. Britannia.

“In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester.”

There’s like a million different ways to say “I love you.”

'Put your seat belt on.'
‘Watch your step.’
‘Get some rest.’


…you just gotta listen.

  • you can chill w/me for hours and just read or watch movies and not  talk
  • i could’ve murdered like 17 people by now but i haven’t

That last one is why I’m a keeper

Iconic Film Costumes

Scarlett O’ Hara’s Curtain Dress designed by Walter Plunkett for Gone With the Wind

The color of the dress presented Plunkett with several problems. It had to suit the color of Vivien Leigh’s eyes and it had to conform to Technicolor specifications. Furthermore, it had to look as if it were made from the draperies at Tara. So the dress was aged as if the sun had faded the material.

Also known as the Drapery Dress and the Portieres Dress, the dress has a moss green velvet overskirt that parts in the front to reveal a chartreuse velvet underskirt. It has fitted sleeves with a semi-cape on the left shoulder and a drapery cord belt.

Las increíbles conexiones entre las culturas Inca y Egipcia.

 Los antiguos egipcios (África) y los antiguos Pre-incas/incas (Sudamérica) vivieron en lados opuestos del globo y nunca estuvieron en contacto.

Sin embargo, ambas culturas compartían misteriosamente el mismo estilo artístico sorprendentemente idéntico, misma arquitectura, simbolismo, mitología y religión.

Los eruditos de la época Victoriana, frente a este enigma, llegaron a la conclusión de que ambas culturas tienen que haber sido hijas de una misma “civilización-padre” del Siglo de Oro: “Atlantis”.

A día de hoy, los paralelismos entre Egipto y los Incas no solo están siendo ignoradas por los académicos estadounidenses y occidentales, que están siendo eliminados.

Muchas similitudes desconcertantes y sin resolver vinculan los antiguos egipcios y los antiguos pre-Incas/Incas - a pesar de que ambas culturas se desarrollaron en lados opuestos del planeta, separados por océanos.

Look! Two civilizations found out that gold is shiny and made it look like people. In other news, they also found the best way to stack big rocks on top of each other so they don’t fall down.

"No homo" cries the team at the dig site. The head archaeologist sinks to his knees, sobbing. He has dedicated his entire career to the pursuit of homo habilis, an important part of the hominid evolutionary line. All his work led up to this archaeological dig site. But now, his whole life has been for nothing. There is no homo….there is only Australopithecus.

I read this to a group of archaeologists and they completely lost their shit
