laugh loudly, laugh often and most importantly laugh at yourself

Baby, I have no idea how this will end.
Maybe the equator will fall like a hula hoop from the Earth’s hips
And our mouths will freeze mid-kiss on our 80th anniversary.
Or maybe tomorrow my absolute insanity
Combined with the absolute obstacle course of your communication skills
Will leave us like a love letter
In a landfill.

But whatever
However
Whenever this ends I want you to know
That right now
I love you forever.

Nazi eugenicists frequently observed that their laws to bar Jewish-Aryan mating were more liberal than were American laws to separate people of African descent from the white genetic pool. Germans held that a person who was one-quarter Jewish was a legal Aryan and thus fit to marry a German, but parallel marriages and mating between whites and Black people were illegal in much of the United States and, in effect, punishable by death — lynching. The “one-drop” laws of many southern states counted anyone who had even one thirty-second African heritage as Black. Other laws, such as the 1924 Virginia Racial Integrity Act, denominated anyone with any “Negro blood” at all as Black. Editors of German medical journals learned a great deal about eugenic proscription by studying American medical journals, whose charts precisely detailed which racial mixtures were tolerable in marriages to whites, who was “white” enough to vote, and so on. In fact, a cordial rivalry characterized the relationship between German and American eugenicists: “The Germans are beating us at our own game,” Virginian eugenicist Dr. Joseph S. Dejarnette sighed in a thinly veiled admiration during a 1934 speech in which he urged the Virginia legislature to expand its sterilization laws.

Americans were so good at medicalized racism that the Nazis learned from us.

you ever thought that maybe the reason girls say they’re fine when they’re not, or they’re not mad when they are, is because the second they show any semblance of emotion they’re written off as hysterical bitches that are probably on their period?

THE FUCKING DA VINCI CODE HAS BEEN CRACKED

Reblogging again, because this will never be irrelevant.
