The Iron Throne as described in the novels, officially endorsed by GRRM on his blog as the most accurate artistic representation thus far. By artist Marc Simonetti.

Oh

What the fuck that isn’t safe

No, it’s not. The histories talk about how the throne is cruel to unworthy kings. Jaime would talk about how Aerys Targaryen would constantly be covered in scabs from sitting on the throne carelessly. 

'No man should sit comfortably upon the throne'
It is meant to be an ugly, monstrous beauty. And several times during the books Joffrey cuts himself on throne.

The whole “earth is round not flat” thing as a major scientific discovery is a very Western-centric thing

Arab and Asian empires had mathematically proven the earth was round way before white people

Arab mathematicians had calculated the circumference of the Earth hundreds of years before Columbus sailed. Even the ancient Greeks knew the world was round and provided their own estimates for size. The real reason nobody except Spain would give Columbus money to go to Asia was because the math had been done and everybody knew the journey from Europe to Asia by sailing west was ridiculously longer than Columbus was claiming. Columbus wasn’t just bad at geography, he also flunked math.

"Multiple reports and witnesses have confirmed that almost half of Gaza city is now covered with white phosphorus gas. Mainly Shaja’ya area. This is not the first time Israel uses this brutal and heartless war method which burns the body and produces toxic gases. Incase you didn’t know, white phosphorus gas is illegal in all international war laws, and UN laws. It is a war crime.”

i might just be going insane but

i am kind of creeped out because when i got home today i saw that one of my drawers was half-open but i don’t think i left it like that when i went out today and i’m afraid someone might have gotten in throught my balcony (i left the door and window slightly open, but with a string making sure they wouldn’t open wide, because of the heat)

my balcony is like kind of a terrace in the way it’s not free-standing but it’s a long stretch of terrace devided into balconies by rails, so it’s only a climbable rail that separates me from my neighbours but they seem like nice people, not creepy people.

and i can’t see anything missing; my keyboard was still there, my laptop was still on my table and none of my jewelry were missing, and i mean those are kind of the most valuable things i own. so i might have just forgotten i opened it earlier, or the drawer was opened by some sort of freak heat thing, or there is some kind of creepy serial killer neighbour who crept into my home only to open that drawer to unsettle me and is going to horribly kill me in my sleep tonight. probably.

the hunger games aren’t amazingly unique or flawless or anything but I think katniss as a character is very important and i think the media misunderstands

we aren’t in it for the cute boys. we’re in it for katniss. thousands of young girls were introduced to an introverted, angry girl born into poverty and watched her become the savior of the world and the media doesn’t seem to understand that she, as a character, is important to girls. not who she dates, but her

in french we don’t say “i love you”, we say “vous recevez une heure supplémentaire dans la piscine à balles” which roughly translates to “you are my sun, my stars, my everything” and i think that’s beautiful

"Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”"

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
