for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.

how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever

But, remember, women never did anything in history.

This is laughably incorrect.
Fact 1: Although technologically obsolete as of WWII, the Polikarpov Po-2 “Kukuruznik” biplanes flown by the 588th Night Bomber Regiment were in no way ” the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world.” The Po-2 was first flown in 1929 and remained in production until 1953 due to its low cost and extreme reliability. It is, in fact, the second most produced aircraft in history, and the most produced biplane in history. The night bombers flew brand new, specially modified Po-2s fitted with bomb racks and machine guns.
Fact 2: The Po-2 was extremely quiet; Germans nicknamed it the Nähmaschine (“sewing machine”) due to the muted rattling sound its tiny little 99-horsepower radial engine made. The night bombers would fly these quiet little planes just a few meters off the ground, then climb to higher altitude, cut the engine, and glide to the attack point so that the Germans would have no warning of an incoming attack other than wind whistling through the wing bracing-wires. It wasn’t because the engines were unreliable, it was a planned attack pattern.
Fact 3: Saying “their leader flew over 200 missions” is both inaccurate and damning with faint praise. Whereas most combat pilots fly only one or two sorties per day, all of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment pilots flew multiple missions every night, with the record being eighteen missions flown back-to-back-to-back-to-back in a single night. By the end of the war, most of the “Night Witches” had around a thousand combat sorties under their belts.
The Night Witches were THAT fucking badass, and it pisses me off when people get it all wrong because they’re too damn lazy to do their homework.

And this is one of the rare times the correction makes things more badass.

Wow, I now totally want to write the Temeraire-universe story of this regiment.

still confused as to why tumblr doesn’t like comic sans

Being in Design, a lot of people were pretty disrespectful towards Comic Sans and Papyrus as a font because “oh gwad they’re ugly as hell” despite that the former being useful font for people with dyslexia. And Papyrus being the inspiration for a few fonts.

I don’t know, I like both, now knowing what Comic Sans is.

Comic Sans, Papyrus, and pretty much all the Lucidas are my favorite fonts… ;n;

didtheyeverpickthewrongguy replied to your post: “still confused as to why tumblr doesn’t like comic sans”:

There are some posts analyzing it but really I just think it’s the connotation to school as teachers in primary and secondary school overuse it so much. It is, also, very unprofessional.

I agree that it’s unprofessional-looking but far as I know my teachers never used it, they used Arial

Do comics even use Comic Sans

Why is it called Comic Sans

Funny, I had a professor who believed I should use comic sans for my comic. Which was a fantasy epic comic. 

redvioletpanda-art:

I will be moving out in June! Before that time, I will be offering lineless commissions pieces at $15 a piece. There are 15 slots open and I am taking first come first serve.

Once 15 slots are filled, I will be offering another set of 15 commissions at $15 apiece. 

Given that normally my lineless commissions are priced $5 higher than this, this is an opportunity to get a commission now until the start of June.

I can do

  • Furry/anthro
  • Fanart
  • Original creatures and characters (given that I have a good reference)

What I can’t

  • No NSFW (sorry)
  • Extreme gore and violence

I accept half or full pay upfront via Paypal (no checks or money orders)

All work will be sent via e-mail.

THANK YOU and if you can’t contribute, you may reblog. Reblogging is good karma and that leads to free pizza or other stuff like that.

An undeniably large part of what keeps poverty going is the fact that there are people who think that if they vote with the rich they’ll somehow magically become the rich. The trouble is, rich people don’t vote. They own.

"Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires." 

(Quote attributed to John Steinbeck but is under dispute. Regardless, it’s still true.)

i want to take a moment to talk about the movie ‘khumba' because i just noticed its been added to netflix 

EVERYONE NEEDS TO CHECK OUT THIS MOVIE!! i watched it a few months ago and i loved it, here’s the synopsis 

Rejected by his superstitious herd, a half-striped zebra embarks on a daring quest to earn his stripes but finds the courage and self-acceptance to save all the animals of the Great Karoo

some cool stuff about this movie

  • the studio behind this movie is triggerfish animation, based in cape town south africa. it’s a pretty new studio, they did that movie ‘adventures in zambezia’ in 2012 (the one with the birds) i think it’s awesome to see a movie made in the same place it’s set 
  • it’s BEAUTIFULLY animated and the art direction is pretty good too especially considering it wasn’t made by any big name studios. the character designs are more interesting and varied than a lot of cgi animated stuff disney has put out i’ll say that
  • the movie was inspired by and dedicated to the quagga project, which was an effort to save the quagga (which looks kinda like a half striped zebra) from extinction 

the cast is really impressive for a 20 million budget movie too btw

CHECK KHUMBA OUT ON NETFLIX!!! REALLY WORTH A WATCH 

OMG LOOK AT THE SECOND PICTURE

HE’S STANDING IN THE SHADOWS SO IT LOOKS LIKE HE HAS STRIPES ON HIS BUTT

THAT’S REALLY ADORABLE AND KIND OF SAD HHH

And is that a fucking African Wild Dog in the first? Omg they’re like the coolest canine ever I’m gonna watch this it looks hella cute

as someone who works in animation I am both confused and mortified that I haven’t heard of this before now

OH MY GOSH I WANNA WATCH THIS

that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.

Always reblog.

I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.

I love that last gif.  She looks so frustrated.  Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”

She does have a point though..

Kids who are smarter than adults though.

This reminds me of the times when Halloween would roll around the corner and my mom would try to make me dress up as a princess EVERY HALLOWEEN (I am not even kidding, if you think the “princesses are for girls” crap is bad, my mom refused to let me be anything BUT a princess come Halloween). One Halloween, I threw the dress down, stamped on it screaming “I DON’T WANNA BE A PRINCESS, I WANNA BE A DINOSAUR!”

She eventually let me be a princess and soon after that, I never heard her complain about my Halloween costume choices there-after.

The fact is, don’t force your kids into a damn gender role because you want them to. If your son wants to play with princess dolls, LET THEM. If your daughter wants to dress up like a dinosaur instead of a princess this Halloween, LET THEM. If your daughter enjoys sparkly pink unicorns, LET THEM. If your son likes football, LET THEM. Don’t go forcing toxic gender roles down kid’s throats.

Inside China’s Insane Witch Hunt For Slash Fiction Writers

Bravo China on a totally proportionate response. It’s about time someone took action against the very real threat that is slash-fic.

it’s all fun and games until someone writes a slash-fic

china no

are you sure this is the most important issue right now?

It is literally a whole other world over there. Holly’s brother lives and works in China, and some of the things I’ve heard from him are just so baffling to my western mind.
