Serpent Column of Delphi

Delphi, Greece

478 BC

8 m.

The Serpent Column, also known as the Serpentine Column, Plataean Tripod or Delphi Tripod, is an ancient bronze column. It is part of an ancient Greek sacrificial tripod, originally in Delphi and relocated to Constantinople by Constantine I the Great in 324. It was built to commemorate the Greeks who fought and defeated the Persian Empire at the Battle of Plataea (479 BC). The serpent heads of the 8-metre high column remained intact until the end of the 17th century.

Together with its original golden tripod and bowl (both long missing), it constituted a trophy, or offering, dedicated to Apollo at Delphi. This offering was made in the spring of 478 BC, several months after the defeat of the Persian army in the Battle of Plataea (August 479 BC) by those Greek city-states in alliance against the Persian invasion of mainland Greece.

Pictured are two reconstruction proposals and pictures of the actual column.

SIRIUS x READER / Where you settle...

In which I regale you with a quick description of your home and domestic life with a one, Sirius Black… 


It’s a couple months after you graduate Hogwarts when you and Sirius are both a little groggy from sleep and fumbling around in a muggle hotel kitchenette that the idea springs to life.

“Let’s jus’ find our own place fo’ fucks sake.” He had muttered after bumping into you for the second time attempting to retrieve butter. You had looked at him, “Our place?”

MG08/18 Submachine Gun

Interestingly, the Bergmann MP-18 was not the only German submachine gun of World War I. A downsized Maxim gun chambered for 9x19mm Parabellum was developed in the closing stages of the war. It had a fixed box magazine and utilized an experimental clip-feed system. The clips had multiple columns containing 10 rounds each. When the first column of the clip had been depleted, the clip is shifted and starts feeding the second column into the gun. The magazine could hold 8 columns in total, meaning the total magazine size was 80 rounds. Empty clips were ejected from a folding gate on the right side of the gun. The sights seem to be of an adjustable, flip-up type.

so this is my fitness journal! it’s a regular black notebook that i wanted to do something with so i created a bullet journal knockoff/adaptation where i can log my fitness!

first, a title page with my name so if I lose it, it can be returned.

then, an index. whenever you start a new page, number it and add it. kind of like a table of contents.

after the index i actually start with my exercise pages. i turn the journal sideways and create 8 vertical columns for each day of the week, and one for notes. you could also draw them the same and use it horizontally but i like vertical lists better.

after labeling each column with the day of the week and the day of the month, i write a goal for each day. usually monday is ab day, wednesday is legs & butt, and friday is arms. then i fill in the rest of them with yoga or swimming.

the first two weeks in my pictures are what it looks like after the week is over and after everything is filled out. the third one is this week so only monday is done and the rest are blank.

anyway, i hope somebody found this helpful! peace

Imagine: You’re a new student at Coruscant High and get some help from a new friend.

Warnings: None.


Staring up at the big lettering above the daunting double doors, you take a steadying breath. Coruscant High School. You grip the flute case that’s in your right hand a little tighter. Your knuckles turn white and you grit your teeth.

Being a new student was tough. You’d switched schools twice in the last year and assumed you would do it again. Nevertheless, it was difficult going somewhere nobody knew your name, where nobody knew who you were or where you came from. It was daunting and terrifying, but exhilarating, too. Mostly the former, though.

Taking another long, shaky breath, you walk inside.
