THIS IS MARRIAGE!!
Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.
He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”
Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.
I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT
LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.
In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.
Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.
Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT.
Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.
FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.
^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.
I would check first too if I was married to Cersi.
Dude. Gorgo is way more badass than Cersi, but Lena Headly rocks them both
Hey Korra Nation, BIG NEWS!!!
IF THIS PICTURE (drawn by the one-and-only Bryan K) GETS OVER 15,000 NOTES, WE’LL RELEASE OUR FIRST EXCLUSIVE CLIP FROM BOOK 4 ONLINE TOMORROW MORNING!
So what’re you waiting for? Let’s do this!!!
Harley is a gift from God.
This is why Harley is like my all time favorite!
Why did they leave out the best part of this scene?;
The character development of Harley is probably one of the better things DC has done with their characters.
Can we talk about Dinah calling her Harleen there?
Can we talk about that please?

Yay me! Current plans for the day: Eat food with my sister… and that’s it. Wow. But at least I got paid today.
im in one of those periods in my life where i cant focus on anything i cant finish an assignment i cant listen to one song for more than 5 seconds i cant sit through a tv show episode i cant finish a book i cant write a story
all i can do is stare blankly at the wall and wish i had something to do but everything i could do or want to do is just supremely unsatisfying
SOMEONE PUT IT IN WORDS THANKS YOU
Hey kids this is a symptom of depression
So I’ve been doing some thinking about the games that are coming out later this year that I will most likely purchase:
Hyrule Warriors comes out on Sept. 26.Middle-earth:Shadow of Mordor and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax come out on Sept. 30. So I have 4 days to beat Hyrule Warriors (so I’ll probably just play as Link until I have free time).
The Legend of Korra game comes out on Oct. 21st. So I have 21 days to beat Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor/Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (so 10.5 days for each game, not so bad).
Bayonetta 2 (which comes with the first Bayonetta) comes out on Oct. 24th giving me 3 days to beat Legend of Korra (aww, come on games industry).
Dragon Age: Inquisition comes out Nov. 18. And before I play DA:I, I have to rebeat Dragon Age:Origins, Dragon Age: Awakening, and Dragon Age 2. So that leaves me 25 days to beat potentially 5 games (2 games at minimum)[dear god, if I have to beat 5 games in 25 days I’ll pass out).
Pokemon Omega Ruby comes out on Nov. 21. So as it goes, I have 3 days to beat Dragon Age: Inquisition (Goddamit games company, I already give you my money, I can’t give you my soul as well [my soul is the property of my job, no seriously, it’s in my contract])
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth comes out Nov. 25 (Fuck! 4 days for Pokemon?! GODDAMNSONUVABTCH)
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix comes out Dec. 2 which gives me a week to beat Persona Q (are you kidding me?! It’s a Persona game! I can’t beat a Persona game in a single week! And don’t get me started on me buying the JPN version of this game [which comes out on Oct. 2 and the one I bought comes with KH 1.5])
And in-between all these games, I still have to beat the following games that I currently own:
- Xenoblade Chronicles
- Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
- Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD
- The Last Story
- The Witch and the Hundred Knight
- Star Ocean: The Last Hope International
- Final Fantasy X HD Remaster
- Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster
- Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl
- Drakengard 3
Yeah… So if I never see anyone for the rest of this year, I’m sorry (not really).
So I’ve been at work since 7:45 AM and I won’t get off until after midnight. 16 hours! If I average it out, I made $3.44 an hour.
