She does not get to decide what I can and cannot do. What she has done she has no right or opinion that I will heed. She was a shitty moirail and she’s a terri8le individual who cannot t8ke the consequences. 

As long as she continues plotting my demise with her 8itch of a wife, I will 8e watching. And I do not give a rats ass a8out how uncomforta8le it m8kes her. I will watch like the Eye of Sauron. As she feels my gaze 8urning at the 8ack of her neck like sun8urn. 

On other important news, why are you typing like that? Are you alright and do you seek my assistance? 


June 6th 1944: D-Day

On this day in 1944, the D-Day landings began on the beaches of Normandy as part of the Allied ‘Operation Overlord’. The largest amphibious military operation in history, the operation involved thousands of Allied troops landing in France. For those landing on the beaches of Normandy, they faced heavy fire, mines and other obstacles on the beach, but managed to push inland. In charge of the operation was future US President General Dwight Eisenhower and leading the ground forces was British General Bernard Montgomery. The landings proved a decisive Allied victory, as they secured a foothold in France which had been defeated by Nazi Germany in 1940. D-Day was a key moment in the Second World War and helped turn the tide of the war in favour of the Allies. 70 years on, we remember not just the strategic victory that was D-Day but also the ultimate sacrifice paid by thousands of soldiers on both sides of the fighting.

“You are about to embark upon the great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months.”
- Eisenhower’s message to the Allied Expeditionary Force

These color photographs show the troops getting ready for the D-Day assault at an British port. Most of the color stills in the National Archives show the preparations rather than the invasion.

June 6, 1944: D-Day, The Invasion of Normandy

On this day in 1944, Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, France. More than 160,000 American, British, and Canadian troops and 30,000 vehicles landed along a 50-mile stretch of fortified French coastline. The Battle of Normandy, known as “Operation Overlord,” lasted from June 1944 to August 1944 and aided in ending World War II in Europe.

Today in 1944: American troops land at Omaha Beach for the invasion of Normandy, France, known as D-Day. Robert Capa was one of two magazine war correspondents allowed to join the U.S. troops landing on the shores of Normandy. 

Dodging bullets and hiding behind pieces of steel, Capa photographed for hours in waist-deep water with several cameras. His hands trembled, and he ruined many rolls of film as he tried to change film amid the dead and wounded of the battle. 

His photos were sent directly to the offices of LIFE in London for processing. Hurrying to develop the rolls, a technician turned up the heat in the dryers, ruining many of the 72 images taken. Only 11 survived.

Reminder: it is the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of occupied France during World War II. As cute/quirky as National Donut Day is (the first Friday in June, which happens to be D-Day this year), please also remember D-Day and its significance and the… y'know, actual sacrifice that occurred. 

As for this particular caption: it’s pretty bad taste, tumblr donut message programmers.
