Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.
EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
***INSANELY PAINFUL SHRIEKING***
So, I went to the museum on my birthday.
I love art. ♥
Art history books have a reputation of showcasing dead, white, European males — DWEM — and the (mostly white) women they handpicked as muses. Portrait after portrait reveals a woman’s face through a man’s gaze, casting a rather unsavory light on the tendency of artists to eroticize, objectify or idolize the female form.

This is a sikh temple called the Harmandir sahib or commonly called the golden temple. All sikh temples in India and even a lot around the world serve free meals everyday to anyone who visits the temple.
The water that surrounds the Golden Temple is known as the Amrit Sarovar (Pool of Nectar) and the water of the pool is said to have special properties.
The largest langar of all Gurudwaras is organized everyday at the Golden Temple where around 35,000 people a day are fed for free by temple volunteers.
All the diners have to sit on the floor, irrespective of caste, status, wealth or creed, symbolizing the central Sikh doctrine of the equality of all people.
The Golden Temple has four entrances in the North, East, South and West indicating that people from all four corners of the earth are welcome here and are permitted to enter.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I LOVE YOU TOO!!! ♥♥
My Birthday is in two hours… I am going to be 24 in two fucking hours. 24 means mid twenties, not early, but mid… T-T I’m not cool with this. Not cool at all.
But I decided to celebrate my Birthday by going to as many museums as I can. Because I’m an adult and I can look at as much marble butts as I want. ♡
