I’m crying, this is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all week
Reblogging AGAIN because just last week my brother ‘liked’ a picture on fb in which a woman explained why she does NOT need feminism. Her reasons included (among others) “I make my own decisions and I’m in charge of my body and I don’t nee ‘epowering’” … “I like men and refuse to demonise them” … I just couldn’t get over the extreme ignorance and stupidity of this woman and, the fact that my own brother liked it lets me know he TOO is ignorant to the true nature of real feminism and has been on the receiving end of man-hating extremists.
So yeah, reblogging because it STILL needs to be seen and heard.

I recently learned that the water in Salem was contaminated with the fungus from which LSD is derived and a legitimate theory for the whole thing is that everyone in the town was tripping balls
This might be the greatest thing ive ever seen on the internet
We did a whole massive thing on this in history. I believe the fungus in question is called Ergot and it’s terrifying. It makes your muscles spasm so when they had seizures that was the reason, not because they were possessed. One woman had to be strapped to her bed, she was seizing so bad. And, like ‘theybuildbuildings’ said, it had the same effects as LSD; as soon as you touch it, let alone consume it, it messes with your entire system. The worst thing is, you practically always had a bad trip. Many complained about bugs crawling under their skin or monsters emerging from the shadows to scratch and bite at them until they were screaming. It was a horrendous thing and the worst part is, Ergot is still around. It grows on crops and, if your wheat isn’t properly treated, it can be eaten and you’ll most likely experience the same as the women of Salem.
