Moss Graffiti: A How To Guide
are you fucking for real
Oh man, i was actually looking for this the other day.
Yay it’s back to remind me of something awesome I haven’t gotten done yet
this is fucking sick
Can you do it without milk
I was wondering the same thing and you can totally use beer. The moss just needs some sort of food, and beer is a good vegan substitute!
I’ve done about 45 graffiti pieces this way. It works & looks wonderful!!

"Dont say you hate your fam-" No.
"Omg you should love your fami-" No.
"Be grateful they’re your famil-" No.
If you have been bullied, hit, teased, put down, hurt, lied to, or hated by you’re own family; you don’t need to justify how you feel. You dont need to explain yourself. You are allowed to hate a family member or dislike a family member if they’ve given you a reason to.

Traces of coca and nicotine found in Egyptian mummies - WTF fun facts
well DUH. a lot of historians are still trying to process the fact that ancient egyptians knew how to build boats, which is ridiculous. why would they not be seafarers and explorers?
this is not new or surprising information at all. it pretty much day one of any african-american studies course.
the egyptians knew that if they put their boats in front of the summer storm winds it’d blow them right across the sea to the Americas and they shared that with the greeks.
It’s really hard for people to understand that everyone had boats, exploration, and trade interactions without the same level of murder, colonization, and violence that the Europeans did. It’s really hard for people to get that.
An 11,000 year old Iroqious boat.
A whole book about Ancient Egyptian Maritime technology and culture.
Scientists “shocked” to discover that humanity casually traveled the seas over 100,000 years ago.
The Sea-Craft of Prehistory (book; Eurocentric as heck)
Humans traveling long distances by sea and deep=sea fishing for c. 42,000 years
The Dufuna Canoe, Africa’s oldest surviving boat, is 8,000 years old (Nigeria)
A fleet of 5,000-year-old boats in Abydos, Egypt
7,000-year-old seaworthy vessels in Kuwait
7,500-year-old boat found in China’s Zhejiang Province.
Scientific Evidence for Pre-Columbian Transoceanic Voyages (273 pages-for the hardcore only!):
The only plausible explanation for these findings is that a considerable number of transoceanic voyages in both directions across both major oceans were completed between the 7th millennium BC and the European age of discovery. Our growing knowledge of early maritime technology and its accomplishments gives us confidence that vessels and nautical skills capable of these long-distance travels were developed by the times indicated. These voyages put a new complexion on the extensive Old World/New World cultural parallels that have long been controversial.
MMMMmmm. Science, history and people being stupid about the past.
Heeeeeyyyy history, you’re looking fiiiiine today. Mind if I… *sotto voce* learn you?

Thought I’d put together what I believe is an accurate Anglo-Saxon futhorc (runes) representation of the three Old English/Anglo-Saxon words associated with trans women.
I stress “I believe” because, while most of the character choices were obvious, some were less so. “Scritta” could have been spelled with a cen for the “k” sound, as I used, or I could’ve used a calc—but the calc rune is a later addition to the futhorc, mostly used by the Northumbrian dialect, and signifies death and endings, so it didn’t seem as appropriate.

HEY WRITER FRIENDS
there’s this amazing site called realtimeboardwhich is like a whiteboard where you can plan and draw webs and family trees and timelines and all that sort of stuff. you can also insert videos, documents, photos, and lots of other things. you can put notes and post-its and, best of all, you can invite other people to be on the board with you and edit together!!
this is really really awesome and a great tool for novel planning, so if you’re doing nanowrimo…. this could be good for you!!
This is a great website and helped me to lay out so many things. Use it. It’s beautiful.

resistence can be violent. liberation must be violent
is that a hard idea to accept or grasp?
people who are oppressing you don’t just stop oppressing you because you want them to not oppress you.
You have to make them stop.
Did anyone actually believe we would gain our freedom by never taking any aggressive actions and constantly explaining our Reasonable Ideas very clearly?
Oppression is violent. Getting rid of it will not be easy. It will not be peaceful.
What matters is that we make it worth it afterwords. That we build the communities that we’ve been talking about, or at least that we try.
