Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason.

Everyone’s heard of Rosie the Riveter, but what about her forgotten WW1 predecessor, the Farmerette?

When I first saw this, I thought, “Oh the Land Girls!”

Oops. (Kind-of.)

The Land Girls were during World War II.

in russian they dont say “i love you” they say “пожирать плоть капиталистов” which means “we are one and the same” and i think thats beautiful

Evolution of the English Language


  • Old 

Hwæt. We Gardena in geardagum,
þeodcyninga, þrym gefrunon,
hu ða æþelingas ellen fremedon.

  • Middle 

Ye seken lond and see for your wynnynges,
As wise folk ye knowen all th’estaat 
Of regnes; ye been fadres of tydynges
And tales, bothe of pees and of debaat.

  • Early Modern (early phase)

So whan the duke and his wyf were comyn unto the Kynge, by the meanes of grete lordes they were accorded bothe. The kynge lyked and loved this lady wel, and he made them grete chere oute of mesure – and desyred to have lyen by her. But she was a passyng good woman and wold not assente unto the Kyng.

  • Early Modern (later phase)

Men at some time are masters of their fates:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

  • Modern

"T. S. Eliot didn’t even fight in the War!"

"Did you not fight in the War?"

"No… I am not Prince Hamlet nor was…"

"OK, go home."

*Eliot leaves muttering about coffee spoons*

Sassoon, about Robert Graves: “The weird thing about hanging out with Robert was that I could hate him, and at the same time, I still wanted him to like me.”
