I don’t get these posts that go like “part of me wants to be a hot girl at the bar and the other part of me wants to read and sip tea in a bookstore”

like you can wear red lipstick and a leather jacket and sip tea and dance in the rain and go to the gym and curl up in bed and get turnt the fuck up and go to church

you can literally have it all sis

the world is yours

This is the most inspiring thing I have ever read

For real guys I go from classy 50s hairstylist to trashy punk rocker within a single day, y’all can do what you want.

Also pumpkin spice tea and coffee with the actual pumpkin flavor in it are delicious and awesome you can’t possibly understand if you’ve never had it okay

Pumpkin. Spice. Cream. Cheese.

(You wanna ramp it up, slather it on toast—I like whole wheat—with some chocolate hazelnut spread…) ((No, I didn’t say Nutella, because I buy the Aldi version.  I find the Aldi pumpkin spice cream cheese is more appealing to me than the Philly brand stuff, too.))

Ok so its been two years since I’ve lived anywhere near an Aldi but do they still have pumpkin spice cider? That stuff is delicious. Also it comes in a super neat dark brown sassafras bottle (my grandma took mine and put it in her “old fashioned country stuff” collection).

september aka the time of year all the american bloggers start putting fucking pumpkin flavouring into literally everything and i’m over here looking horrified because what the fuck that sounds absolutely disgusting does…

Pumpkin spice is the spice blend used in pumpkin pie. Its actually sold on its own pre-mixed in the baking aisle of most grocery stores now. Most Americans have never tasted pumpkin without it, so yeah every pumpkin muffin, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookie, and pumpkin latte probably has just the spices and nothing else. Heck some canned pumpkin for pie filling comes with the spice already in it. I personally like pumpkin on its own too, but I grew up on a farm and actually have been able to taste it without all the extra stuff yet.

THE COLUMBUS MENTAL HOSPITAL, TICO CEMETERY

This is one of the cemeteries where the state of Ohio buried the residents of the mental hospital whose families either didn’t claim them or were too poor to afford to do it themselves. The gravestones are all the same size and shape, and most are simply a name with a birth and death date.

The most striking feature is that there are 2 gravestones marked “SPECIMEN.” What that could possibly entail is horrifying. 

SOURCE

The source site has other neat pages. Certainly worth browsing

Hehehe, I’ve been to this cemetery (and countless others)!  Also, it says ‘SPECIMENS.’  As in, there’s more than one specimen in there O_O.

From something I’ve read about other asylums, its possible the “Specimens” graves are simply the burial site of what we’d consider now medical waste. Things like surgically removed diseased organs, tumors, growths, etc. Nowadays its left up to the discretion of the patient whether it is kept, donated, or cremated, but back then they would have been kept for medical science and then when it was no longer useful to them, buried as if it was a body. So yeah, there’s no mutated and abused human created by some mad doctor buried there, likely just someone’s gallbladder or something.

Actually, before Hitler’s regime, the masculine color was pink and blue was the color for females. This all changed when Hitler started using colored stars to identify the people in his camps, such as yellow for the Jews. Homosexuals were forced to wear pink stars, so pink was then seen as feminine. Long story short, baby boys are wrapped in blue and baby girls are swathed in pink because of Hitler.

Is there any actual source for this? It’s true that the switch started around the 40s but certainly the average American wasn’t aware at the time of Hitler’s treatment of homosexuals. And even the idea that this knowledge would influence fashion, especially at that rate, is sort of preposterous. 

I’ve done a lot of fashion history and have never heard that story. My only gripe though is that Cinderella didn’t wear blue originally, it was silver. They only started making her blue in the re-releases and marketing so her dress wouldn’t be confused with a wedding gown.
