sometimes I wish that my family was a Scottish clan just so I could wear the clan tartan to my wedding
Clan tartans are a load of mince, the whole idea was an invention of the 19th century, the monarchist tory and falsifier of Scottish history Sir Walter Scott popularised it for a royal visit in 1822.
Most “clan” tartans have their origin in this acknowledged forgery
Clan chiefs of feudal Scotland were scum who burnt people’s houses if they refused to fight mercenary wars for their enrichment.
If you want a tartan for your wedding, may I suggest this non exclusionary and non feudal one?
i don’t understand how people are reblogging this and not getting the joke
that link is to celtic fc’s tartan
and i refuse to believe there are people who’ve heard of the existence of scotland and not heard about the celtic/rangers uh … sectarian animosity-bordering-on-football-warfare.
That is a splendid suggestion for a wedding tartan, but if the groom wears that one, the bride really should wear this lovely blue tartan ribbon, to show their eternal commitment and compatibility. Nothing could possibly go wrong.
This was requested, but here are 10 terrifying gifs
Anyone know what the third last gif is from?
third last gif is from Xtro! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xtro
One of these is Xtro, but where are the rest from… just so I can avoid these :D
I think I recognise Grave Encounters 2 and Insidious in there.
The adventures of Peter Grant, a young officer in the Metropolitan Police, who, following an unexpected encounter with a ghost, is the first new recruit in 50 years for the small branch of the Met that deals with magic and the supernatural.
These books are so great, you guys. Gritty urban fantasy with a host of fleshed-out characters (including a POC protagonist) and intriguing mysteries. You should totally read them.
Book 5, Foxglove Summer, is out in November. FUUUUUCK YEEEEAAAAAH.
god i wish people in my country would get the hang of the following:
- condemning violence in gaza without lurching into swivel-eyed anti-semitism
- not assuming everyone from one country supports the actions of their government; i mean it’s not as if we exactly have a universal consensus here
- conversely not assuming that every criticism of land-grabbers, massacres & military zealousness is automatically criticism of a) everyone else in israel and b) every other jew in the fucking world
fourty exclamation points in a row and it is pronounced like a person screaming
I dunno, I live near a primary school and from what I hear at break time, that’s a really common name these days.
The fossa is a cat-like carnivorous mammal that is endemic to Madagascar. Several of the animal’s physical features are adaptions to climbing through trees. It uses its tail to aid in balance and has semi-retractable claws that it uses to climb trees in its search for prey. Fossas communicate using sounds, scents, and visual signals. Vocalizations include purring, a threatening call, and a call of fear.
They’re also great choreographers.

I SEE YOU WEARING YOUR GIRLFRIEND’S SHOES THERE. Man, sharing clothing or shoe size with a partner must be hella useful.
Kitten rejected by mother and raised by golden retriever
I’m so happy for this little kitty
im cryin a bit
That golden retriever is no dummy. He knows a cute baby kitten brings joy to your life and passing up that opportunity is seriously stupid. Everyone go out and adopt a mom-less cat today, young or old. More cats in your life = a more awesome life.
