October 21st marks the anniversary of one of the greatest tragedies in maritime history.

verecunda:

Today the cat killd our bird M[otacilla] Avida who had lived with us ever since the 29th of Septr intirely on the flies which he caught for himself; he was hearty and in high health so that probably he might have livd a great while longer had fate been more kind.

- Joseph Banks, 21 October, 1768, HMB Endeavour

RIP, Motacilla Avida. May your memory serve as a warning to all absent-minded naturalists who let their avian specimens flutter unprotected around great cabins where hungry moggies prowl.

friCK MY FRACK, YOU’RE ALL WONDERFUL
@belinda, alas, once we’re free i’m not sure i’ll be capable of much more than sleeping and crying about les mis, but i’ll happily also take time out to aggressively tag the entire graffiti tunnel with ‘watson’s warriors’ or something ovo
@kirsten, yeAH!!!!!!!!! i slept in, and ate a lot of chocolate, and went to a readthrough of a midsummer night’s dream which i’m hopefully gonna help put on next year, and then we all went to the pub and i got bought drinks, including something called a raspberry sour which was perfect but also ten dollars, so thank god for being born on a day or whatever
anyway, i love you all, you’re all perfection, it’s half past one in the morning and i really need to sleep uvu

hamlet is so much better when you read it after finding out that apparently shakespeare played the ghost in its earliest productions. like, imagine shakespeare writing “see what a grace was seated on this brow: hyperion’s curls, the front of jove himself, an eye like mars, to threaten and command, a station like the herald mercury new lighted on a heaven-kissing hill" about himself

Quote
"In all the Western media craze over the young Pakistani activist Malala, there is a key point ignored about her: She is not only a Muslim feminist, she is a socialist with Marxist tendencies. In her own words: “I am convinced Socialism is the only answer and I urge all comrades to take this struggle to a victorious conclusion. Only this will free us from the chains of bigotry and exploitation.”"

The two most important things about Malala Yousafzai that people conveniently (and often deliberately) forget.  (via mangoestho)
