I'm 27, a physics student with the grandiose dream of some day working at a research university and teaching as little as possible. I'm also an enthusiast of: firearms, amateur rocketry, wilderness/primitive survival, woodcarving, metalworking, Romantic literature, philosophy, and being a good old fashioned science-fiction-reading-Dungeons-&-Dragons-playing nerd.

Ask and ye shall receive, maybe even an answer!

I got almost all of them. The few I didn’t are actively enraging me.

"The CIA officers admired Massoud greatly. They saw him as a Che Guevara figure, a great actor on history’s stage. Massoud was a poet, a military genius, a religious man, and a leader of enormous courage who defied death and accepted its inevitability, they thought. In his house there were thousands of books: Persian poetry, histories of the Afghan war in multiple languages, biographies of other military and guerilla leaders. In their meetings Massoud wove sophisticated, measured references to Afghan history and global politics into his arguments. He was quiet, forceful, reserved, and full of dignity, but also light in spirit. The CIA team had gone into the Panjshir as unabashed admirers of Massoud. Now their convictions deepened."Ghost Wars, Steve Coll 

The only thing I don’t like is comparing Massoud to Guevara. Guevara was a traveling revolutionary-for-hire with loose morals, and by all accounts, Massoud was selflessly dedicated to improving his people’s lot in life.

It’s been a long time since I’ve woken up to such good news. 

Opinions, anyone?

I wish I had the kind of power to do something like this…

ha



This website will be the fucking death of me I swear.
People are actually glorifying Robert Mugabe, what are we coming to?
Robert Mugabe is a vile and viscous dictator responsible for the ruin of his own people, using widespread torture and political murder. He is viciously homophobic, calling gays “worse than dogs and pigs”.
Oh but he hates white people, so somehow that makes him a Tumblr hero.
Fuck this website so hard.

Zimbabwe slaughtered so many people and wrecked so much of his infrastructure with executions, combined with refusing to trade with allied nations, his country suffered hyperinflation.
Inflation in the US is a crippling 2.1%, some of the worst inflation rates the States has ever seen, this rate has sent tens if not hundreds of thousands of thousands below the poverty line.Inflation in Zimbabwe was 89,700,000,000,000,000,000,000%.
When the Zimbabwe dollar collapsed in 2009, it was estimated that the exchange rate was 300 Trillion Zimbabwe Dollars to the US Dollar.

Civilians where desperate, shops where bare, food, water and medical supplies where non existent, anyone who spoke out against Mugabe was burned in their own homes or publicly executed.
Mugabe’s crimes against humanity are comparable to Hitler and Stalin. To glorify him is ignorant stupidity. Did I mention that he’s also allied to North Korea?

BUT HE HATES WHITE PEOPLE
SO HE MUST BE PRETTY ALRIGHT
RIGHT, TUMBLR?
fucking hell some of you people are just mentally deficient I swear down.

And the worst bit is that Zimbabwe has some of the most fertile land in South-East Africa. It can grow all kinds of crops there that you can’t normally grow in Africa, wheat and tobacco for some examples. That’s why Rhodesia was one of the richest countries in Africa.
But this idiot (Mugabe) refuses to invest anything in farming and just spends the money on himself and the army.

Robert Mugabe is the reason I still call that country Southern Rhodesia.

No team will ever party as hard as the Bruins did when they won the Cup.


I love how 1 bottle of wine cost them a 2/3rd of the entire thing

My first 3 games I played when I was a kid

back when I grew up all my friends had their fancy N64 systems, but not me, I was rocking the old NES system playing all the “cool games”

There was another Aircraft Fighter game, but I can never figure out which one it was, All I remember was that I would always miss the aircraft carrier or hit the deck too hard and go up in a fireball

I had that game as well, and I never made that landing either.

Seriously, did public officials just sit down one day and try to figure out what would be the most terrifying, un-soothing sounds ever to alert people that they’re probably about to die in a horrifying way? Because they did great.

Fuck this place, I’d rather be in Silent Hill.

jfc omg

Fuck silent hill, it sounds like when you knocked out in Earthbound

Do any of you guys think we didn’t land on the moon? Is that still a thing?

Apparently it is, because Buzz Aldrin had to punch one in the face.

I RE MEMBER THIS.

He must’ve done that more than once, I saw an entirely different video of him punching someone earlier but I lost the link.
