i cry a little bit but yeah kinda
I am always one of the bugs in my room
Hugs for the people who wanted them
The transient nature of nearly everything is often cause for upset but when you’re sad it can be a comfort to know that it won’t last
Always reblog, if not for the hilarious way it illustrates the common thread between eras, for the person who just wrote about making bread… The first ever dull social media user
Some graffiti found in Pompeii’s ruins:
- Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!
- Restituta, take off your tunic, please, and show us your hairy privates.
- I screwed the barmaid.
- Apollinaris, the doctor of the emperor Titus, defecated well here.
- I screwed a lot of girls here.
- Sollemnes, you screw well!
- Theophilus, don’t perform oral sex on girls against the city wall like a dog.
Nice to see nothing has changed.
I love this.
I am laughing so hard
someone basically wrote “secundus is gay” on the wall humankind has not changed at all
So you all need hugs tonight huh
Monster black hole found in tiny galaxy
Discovery hints at twice as many supermassive black holes in the nearby Universe as previously thought.
Astronomers have for the first time found strong evidence for a giant black hole in a Lilliputian galaxy. The finding suggests that supermassive black holes could be twice as numerous in the nearby Universe as previously estimated, with many of them hidden at the centres of small, seemingly nondescript galaxies known as ultra-compact dwarfs.
Astronomers have discovered what may be a Thorne–Zytkow object (TZO), a binary star system where a neutron star is enveloped by a red giant or supergiant star. TZO’s were first theorised in 1977 by Kip Thorne and Anna Zytkow. On June 4th, 2014 a team of astronomers led by Emily Levesque that included Zytkow published a paper identifying red supergiant star HV 2112 in the Small Magellanic Cloud as a possible TZO candidate.
In an interview with Caltech about the discovery, Kip Thorne called the evidence for HV 2112’s classification as a TZO, “strong, but not ironclad.” Adding, “Certainly it’s by far the best candidate for a TZO that anyone has seen, but additional confirmation is needed.”

Monet in Vétheuil (1)
A ravishing spot
In August 1878, Monet left Paris for a stay in the country. In a letter of 1 September to Eugène Murer (one of his sponsors), he was clearly very enthusiastic about the environment he had discovered: “I have set up shop on the banks of the Seine at Vétheuil in a ravishing spot”.
Monet had fallen for this little town where the old church dominated a cluster of old houses with grey-brown tiles and immediately started working on this theme. This was one of the very first results.
