even if i fucking hate you i won’t send you anon hate because my parents didn’t raise me in the jungle

I just imagined some Amazonian person shooting a dart into someone’s neck that was actually a capsule that you opened and it said “kill yourself”

Things I will judge you for:

  • Not signalling while driving

vellum-speaks-silicon-listens:

Here’s an example of the spherical astrolabe (15th C.).
One point which distinguishes Star Map from the astrolabe is that in both cases, astrolabes were not meant for direct viewing. In other words, one could not do real time work. It would require measurement, enscribing, and a duration of labor, etc.
Worth mentioning, the spherical astrolabe did not have a viewing instrument, like the planispheric versions did. This made the planispheric require less work and fewer hours of it in order to chart information.

"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?" 
“Let me tell you something. I’m a Sikh. And I lived in India back in 1984, when a Sikh assassinated Indira Gandhi. Mobs of people went door-to-door, using voter rolls to identify the Sikhs and kill them. They were chanting outside our door while we hid in the closet. The only reason I’m still alive is that our neighbor convinced them that we’d moved away. So I don’t have anything to say to a large group of people. I hate large groups of people.”
