A robot that does not have emotions trying to explain to their human significant other that they are technically not capable of experiencing love, but wants them to understand that their significance can never be understated or fully articulated, that they are always their highest priority, that they remain the most important concept in their existence. That they can not consider themselves at full functioning efficiency without their presence.
Designer Graham demonstrates Winston Churchill’s personal pressure chamber, created to enable him to make high-altitude flights safely
To protect the precious bulk of Winston Churchill in wartime a special one-man pressure chamber was built for the personal plane which carried him many times across the Atlantic and to Casablanca, Moscow and Yalta. Churchill…was warned by his doctors that it was dangerous for a man of his age and physical condition to fly above 8,000 feet. Much higher altitudes sometimes were necessary, however, because of weather and the enemy. The solution was a pressure chamber complete with ash trays, telephone and an air-circulation system good enough to prevent smoke from the ubiquitous cigar from fogging the atmosphere. While pressures within the chamber were kept at the equivalent of 5,000 feet, the prime ministerial figure could loll comfortably like an outsized pearl within a gigantic oyster shell.

sex education at its finest
"so do tampons make girls feel like they’re having sex all the time?"
"It’s every month?"
"I thought it just lasted a couple years"
"It can go for 5 days in a row?!?!"
"Why don’t guys uteruses shed?"
*upon seeing a pad* “Why did someone flatten this tampon?”
WHY DID SOMEONE FLATTEN THIS TAMPON
I feel I should try and defend my half of the species by saying we NEVER get taught this stuff, and women won’t tell us anything because it’s too personal or whatever. So while admittedly a lot of these guys are dumb as fuck, it’s not really our fault…
We assume you don’t really want to hear about it…
new aesthetic: cryptidcore
- kitschy t shirts and keychains from souvenir shops depicting the local urban legends and monsters
- glow in the dark stuff and generic alien themed stuff
- tin foil hats
- muffled x files, gravity falls, and twilight zone theme songs playing in the distance
- staring into the night sky and wondering if we’re alone
- lots of pictures of the woods and abandoned houses

It’s a minor role, but the USA is still in league with the devil. A Good Cartoon.

HISTORY MEME - six women: ka’iulani [7/6]
Victoria Kaʻiulani Kalaninuiahilapalapa Kawekiu i Lunalilo Cleghorn was born on October 16, 1875 and was heir to the Throne of Hawaii, holding the title of Crown Princess. She was descended from High Chief Kepoʻokalani through her mother, who was the sister of King Kalākaua and Queen Liliʻuokalani. Her father was a Scottish financier and the last Royal Governor of O’ahu. At age 13 she was sent to England to receive an education, and excelled in Latin, Literature, Mathematics, History, French, and German. In 1893, while she was still in England, the Hawaiian monarchy was overthrown and the new government attempted to become part of the United States. She decided to take action, despite being reluctant to participate in politics, and travelled to America, where she made many speeches and public appearances. She was treated with contempt by the American pro-annexation press, which referred to her as a “half-breed,” though she did not receive the blatantly racist treatment that her aunt did. President Cleveland expressed an interest in the situation in Hawaii after meeting Ka’iulani, and though the annexation did not move forward in Congress, the Monarchy was still not restored. In 1897, she finally returned to Hawaii, where she continued to make public appearances despite her worsening health. In 1898, Hawaii was finally annexed to the United States. During the annexation ceremony, the Royal Family dressed in funeral attire to protest the transaction. That same year, Ka’iulani was caught in a storm while out horse riding and came down with a fever and pneumonia. She died on March 6, 1899, at the age of 23. (x)
