Once photography became widespread it took only seconds to take a picture. It was because getting your photo taken was treated the same as getting your portrait painted. A very serious occasion meant so thst your descendants would know that ypu existed and what you looked like. But one time some British dudes went to china to go on an anthropological expedition, and they met some rural Chinese farmers and decided to take their pictures. Now, these people weren’t exposed to the weird culture of the time around getting your photo taken, so this guy just flashed a big grin during the photo because he was told to strike a pose and that’s the pose he wanted to strike. I think painted portraits and old photos give us the idea that in general people were just really unhappy because those are the visuals we have. This is so refreshing. Hey, look; “Man Laughing Alone With Rice” is back on my dash. always reblog Happy Rice Guy. once upon a time, he really enjoyed his lunch, and that’s beautiful.

Bitch, Donald Trump, and Funny: ASANASANsp lDonald LOOK A AT HAT U SON OF A BITCH The first protest in space just happened, and it was against Donald Trump 13 April 2017 The first protest in space just happened, thanks to the Autonomous Space Agency Network (yes that's Nasa backwards), and ever better: it was against Donald Trump The team printed out a giant tweet from their own Twitter account, which read "LOOK AT THAT, YOU SON OF A BITCH, tagging Trump's personal Twitter account They then attached the sign to a weather balloon and flew it at 90,000 feet thewondersofspace: anthropwashere: lyinginbedmon: ithelpstodream: out of this world trolling lmao For bonus context, the actual quote they’re citing for this protest comes from Edgar Mitchell (1930-2016), who flew in Apollo 14 and was the sixth person to walk on the Moon. The full quotation, referring to the experience of observing Earth from the Moon surface, is thus: You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.’ #WE’VE DONE IT BOYS#WE’VE PUT SALT IN SPACE I try to keep politics off this blog but this genuinely funny

 The first protest in space
 just happened, and it was
 against Donald Trump
 13 April 2017
 The first protest in space just happened,
 thanks to the Autonomous Space Agency
 Network (yes that's Nasa backwards), and
 ever better: it was against Donald Trump
 The team printed out a giant tweet from
 their own Twitter account, which read
 "LOOK AT THAT, YOU SON OF A BITCH,
 tagging Trump's personal Twitter account
 They then attached the sign to a weather
 balloon and flew it at 90,000 feet

The reason we know the “meanings” and names of the runes at all is because of a handful of rune poems that were initially used as mnemonic devices to remember them. The actual system of divination and magic via Elder Futhark runes is very modern and goes back to ~the 60s I believe? There’s some archeological evidence that runes may have been used for more than just a writing system, and the Havamal (old important morality poem for heathens) mentions that Odin hung on the world tree and sacrificed himself to himself and returned with knowledge of the runes.

And I’d be cautious with getting into using them unless you’re willing to suddenly have Northern Germanic gods busting down your door whether you like it or not. Though feeling a pull toward the runes in general may mean they already have you. Good to know, thank you :)
