my fave greek history story to tell is that of agnodice. like she noticed that women were dying a lot during childbirth so she went to egypt to study medicine in alexandria and was really fucking good but b/c it was illegal for women to be doctors in athens she had to pretend to be a man. and then the other doctors noticed that she was 10x better than them and accused her of seducing and sleeping with the women patients. like they brought her to court for this. and she just looked at them and these charges and stripped in front of everyone like “yeah. im not fucking your wives” and then they got so mad that a woman was better at their jobs then them that they tried to execute her but all her patients came to court and were like “are you fucking serious? she is the reason you have living children and a wife.” so they were shamed into changing the law and that is how women were given the right to practice medicine in athens

When baby orca whales leave the warmth of their mother’s wombs and enter the cold ocean water, they often bask in the sun, rotating like rotisseries. This causes them to get tanned, resulting in their tan-yellow coloration. As they get older, they adapt to the water temperature better and therefore become more white in color.

To dziwne, że nocami myślimy o tym jak zmienić siebie i świat, a nad ranem budzimy się jakby nigdy nic i zapominam, że chcieliśmy być lepsi.
