Locals stumble across ancient Mayan god monument while clearing debris in Mexico

Locals accidentally uncovered an ancient Mayan artefact while clearing debris on privately-owned land in the Mexican state of Chiapas.

The monument, believed to be the head of the Mayan god of maize and abundance, dates back to the late classical period between 600 and 900 AD. It was found underneath a house in the city of Suchiapa.

Archaeologists of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) identified the authenticity and antiquity of the artefact.

The monument has been kept at the Regional Museum of Chiapas since it was found in September 2016.

The Maya civilisation emerged from the Yucatan Peninsula, in the south of what is now Mexico and parts of Belize and Guatemala. It was one of the most advanced and iconic pre-Colombian civilisations. Read more.

post/159918431327/more-team-gai-bc-im-deeply-attached-to-them whats up witht he nazi symbol on one of the characters?

I think i need to clear up some things because for some reason this isnt public knowledge? 

Taken from wikipedia:
The Swastika (also known outside the Indian subcontinent as the Hakenkreuz, gammadion cross, cross cramponnée, croix gammée, fylfot, or tetraskelion) (as a character 卐 or 卍) is an ancient religious symbol originating from the Indian subcontinent, that generally takes the form of an equilateral cross with four legs each bent at 90 degrees.[1][2] It is considered to be a sacred and auspicious symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism and dates back at least 11,000 years

Im also gonna put a link to the wikipage, so that you guys can be more informed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

Taken from http://www.japantimes.co.jp/community/2016/02/10/voices/educate-people-keep-manji-%E5%8D%8D-japans-maps/#.WQBR31PytE4

The symbol, as most of you likely already know, has been around for thousands of years, and out of those thousands of years, for only roughly 70 or 80 has it been associated with anything negative. It’s also oriented a bit differently. The Nazi version usually sits in a diamond shape, while the manji version is a square. Some will also say they face opposite directions, but that’s not altogether true: Japanese Buddhism has both a right-facing and left-facing manji.

and obviously you and some of the people who commented didnt read the manga so im gonna put a page from the manga right here. 

Now if your question is why would neji have that symbol on his forehead then maybe you should actually watch the show or read the comic. 

please make sure you are well informed and do your research first before saying anything regrettable, you’re just shaming yourself for not knowing a well known fact.

This is a picture of me wonderful husband to be and I back when we first started dating. We were at the mall and I wanted to hope into one of those photobooths to take some pics together. We met back in highschool, but didn’t actually start dating until college. When I first started to come into my sexuality, he was the frist boy I ever thought was cute…and he ended up being my first crush. Years later I ended up dating him, and a year n half later he proposed to me. I had almost ruined the proposal too because I was feeling quite sick and awful but he wanted to walk aroumd and explore while we were on vacation. There were so many close calls to exposing his proposal plans, but somehow I was ignorant to it all. We’ve been engaged for year now and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with this man as husband and husband. I know we both hope for kids in the future; have talked about surrogacy and/or adoption. To me, he is a gift every day of my life, and I treasure him as such.

Bukchon Hanok Village

After our late lunch at Tosokchon we headed out to see the  Bukchon Hanok Village. We rode the bus even if it was kinda near if your a walker but if not I suggest you take the bus. The  Bukchon Hanok Village is on the other side of the palace where  Tosokchon  is located. We got off at  Samcheongdong.  Samcheongdong is full of art galleries and cafes. We walked around and enjoyed every single concepts of stores they have there. A hip place for the everyone to appreciate.

Entrance to the Smith Street subway station in Brooklyn, sometime in the late 1980s. 

The “8th Avenue” on the sign doesn’t refer to the station, but to the subway line.  The stop was in the former Independent Subway System (IND), and “8th Avenue” corresponded to the Manhattan avenue the line traveled beneath, nomenclature dating back to IND’s 1932 debut. 

My photo–I think I was experimenting with high speed film and may have even lugged my tripod along.

I CAN’T BELIEVE ED SHEERAN WROTE “NEW MAN” ABOUT HARRY STYLES

“he spent five hundred pounds on jeans”

“He’s got his eyebrows plucked and his asshole bleached”

“Tribal tattoos and he don’t know what it means”

“And wears a man bag on his shoulder, but I call it a purse”

“Drinks beer, but has a six pack, I’m kinda jealous”

“He wears sunglasses indoors, in winter, at nighttime”

“Now you’re eatin’ kale, hittin’ the gym”

An afternoon date~

and a bonus

well… I just want to point out that in 2x01 we saw in this frame Magnus’ hand already holding Alec’s, but in this new kinda-BTS video we can see… yeah, you’re welcome!

I love how some people will literally do gymnastics to avoid accepting Harry as who he says he is. I think it would kill some of you to actually listen to his words. It’s a shame because you’re missing out on one incredible person & I genuinely feel sad for you. 

please give pidge a robot girlfriend in season 3

An anon in my inbox was asking about how the bokuro got together and let’s just say it was an eventful day

1. Don’t date a boy who cancels plans last minute. Especially if he’s canceling for someone else. You are not a second choice. You are not a third choice. You are a first choice or you are nothing to him.
Do you understand me, baby? You are worth so much more than that, don’t let him push you around.

2. If he’s rude to you, drop him. I don’t care how many times he says “just kidding” or “baby, I didn’t mean it” you keep your head up, your shoulders straight, your chin high and you demand to be treated as the goddess you are.

3. If he doesn’t hold your hand in front of his friends or wrap his arms around you when you’re with his family then he isn’t worth it. Date someone who can’t keep their hands off of you. Date someone who aches with the need to feel your skin on theirs.

4. Make sure he has goals, aspirations, dreams. Make sure he has a plan of some sort. If he doesn’t have any of those what are you guys supposed to talk about? What are your 2 AM conversations going to look like?

5. Find out his hobbies and interests and make sure they’re similar to yours. If you want to travel, date someone who will drop what they’re doing just to take you on a random adventure. You don’t want to be stuck with someone who’s idea of a good night is sitting on his futon with cheesy Dorito fingers while you watch him play video games.

6. If your brother doesn’t like him or if he rubs your sister the wrong way, trust their instinct. There’s probably a reason. I can guarantee you, darling, if you bring him home and we can see in his eyes that you light up his entire world than we will love him just as much as you do. 

7. Baby, if he ever lays a finger on you, you fucking leave him. Don’t think twice, don’t look back and don’t you dare accept his apology two days later. 

8. If you can’t trust him you shouldn’t be dating him. If you have to go through his phone to sleep better at night he’s not the one for you.

9. You’re going to fight, you’re going to argue, that is all part of a relationship. But baby, if he is contradicting everything you say solely for the sake of an argument, just walk away.

10. I’ve seen anger and rage in your grandfather’s eyes. I saw it everyday for 17 years, baby. If losing a football game makes him so mad as to not want to speak to you, than you are giving yourself to the wrong boy. He’s going to grow, and he’s going to get meaner, and he’s going to hurt you. Leave now.  

11. If his laugh doesn’t claw it’s way into your memory and his smile doesn’t make you feel like the entire universe is right in front of you than you are wasting your time.
