doesnt even make any sense

alright, let me tell y’all a story about two badass gay (allegedly, but who are we kidding) resistance fighters in nazi occupied poland.

(rudy is on the left and zośka is right)

tadeusz zawadzki (aka “zośka”) and jan bytnar (aka “rudy”) met in 1937 at age 16, being classmates in high school in warsaw. they were also members of an underground polish scouting association called gray ranks (pol: szare szeregi) and they were both active in resistance actions and sabotages. some of the actions included ripping down nazi flags and putting up polish ones, painting “PW” on walls, symbolizing “polska walcząca” (”fighting poland”), blowing up train tracks or writing slogans over nazi propaganda.

rudy was arrested by gestapo (nazi police) on march 23rd and interrogated to get information out of him about gray ranks and the resistance. and by interrogated i mean beaten until he lost consciousness and then woken up to be beaten some more. but rudy was like “screw you i ain’t tellin you shit” and basically acted like he didn’t know anything. he was injured so severely that on the second day of his arrest he had to be taken to the prison hospital and transported back for interrogation on a hospital stretcher. so zośka decided “fuck this” and gathered a team of 28 people to rescue him from arrest. the action was succesful on march 26th when they rescued rudy and 20 other prisoners during their transportation to a different location. rudy died from his injuries on march 30th with zośka being right by his side. before his death, rudy managed to tell others the names of the two main officers who were interrogating him, one of which was herbert schulz who was shot a month later by zośka.

aleksander kamiński, also a resistance fighter, wrote a book called “stones for the rampart” which describes the history of zośka, rudy and other people from their scout team fighting in warsaw. the title, “stones for the rampart”, comes from a poem “my testament” by juliusz słowacki, which zośka has read to rudy on his deathbed and has insisted on calling the book that. (also because another book, rudy’s favorite, was called the same way)

“But I beg you – let the living not lose hope ever
And bear the torch of learning before their compatriots;
And when called, go to their death one after another,
Like the stones tossed by die Lord onto the ramparts…“

zośka died 5 months after rudy during a resistance action. they were both 22 when they died and both were awarded with the war order of virtuti militari (latin: “for military virtue”) which is poland’s highest military decoration for heroism and courage at war.

alright, you might say, but why do some people think they were gay? well,  elżbieta janicka from the institute of slavic studies said “because we’re talking in a homophobic culture, where questioning someone’s heterosexual orientation
isn’t an ascertainment but an accusation, i’d compare zośka and rudy to achilles and patroclus, a couple of legendary warriors.” in her opinion, a particularly telling part from “stones for the rampart” was where after rescuing rudy from arrest, zośka lies down next to rudy in bed and they talk about moving in together after the war and living in a countryside where they would spend unforgettable and happy days. zośka also says that during that time “when we were together, he enjoyed me holding his hand or petting his hair.” there were also rumours about the boys’ sexualities during the war, said zośka’s liaison officer. 

but whether they were gay or not, they were still bomb-ass resistance fighters and you should read “stones for the rampart” by aleksander kamiński (there’s also a movie from 2014)

Welcome to current year 2017

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say about anything can and will be used against you by anyone and everyone, even if the accusation doesnt make any god damn sense. You’re not allowed to defend yourself, there is only retribution, no appeals, no trial, no mercy, no salvation, no amends. Your only defense is to appease the cult by conceding to wrongdoing -guilty or not- which will also be held against you.
What the Hell Are They Doing?

Another thing that I’m annoyed with about Steven Universe, how come in that one episode when Greg was telling the story of how when he was younger and was babysitting Sour Cream, how come Rose didn’t know what a baby was? The show’s trying to tell us they’ve been on Earth for the past 1,000+ years yet they don’t know the concept of offspring or anything about Earth? They never seen baby animals or people taking care of their children? Like what the hell were they even doing these past years? Picking daisies and playing in sand?

You expect a sane person to believe that all these years of “protecting” Earth, the Gems don’t know or are too lazy to learn anything about what their protecting???? Plus they’re doing an awful job at it, since freaking Russia has a gaping hole in it. -_-

Fixit: I think its the idea of the gems have some superior complex towards organic life on Earth and feel like humans should be grateful for what the gems did in which they kinda should considering they did get Homeworld off the Earths case while not exactly destroying but leaving some damage to the Earth but not to the point that it is inhabitable while they were blissfully unaware of another major threat brewing up under ground (why didnt they not know about the cluster if they cared about Earth and what Homeworld was doing to it so much. There is another plot hole) I mean when Pearl first saw Mystery Girl that was the first thing she mentioned. We saved your kind 6000 years ago praise us. And for some other reason the gems seem to shelter themselves away from humans apart from Amethyst and Vadilia which hasn’t been mentioned again. It is like the gems feel that humans are not good enough to associate themselves with and the fact that Steven the half human doesnt feel a little upset over this is.. strange. It doesn’t make any sense why the gems go all out to protect the planets and it inhabitants while they avoid them at all cost it was made clear in the trial that humans were the reason why Rose rebelled in the first place and Rose did spend time with humans more than others. The other reason why the other CG’s joined (a part from Pearl as it has been 5 seasons in and we still dont know why she joined probably because of Rose) had joined because it was a last resort. Think about it. Garnet joined because Ruby was going to be shattered by BD and Amethyst because she was left on Earth alone  so really are the CG’s protecting Earth because they love the planet or because Rose the gem in their eyes gave them a place wants them too and they are paying back the favor. 

But for the gems especially Rose who has been chilling with humans for thousands of years should know what a baby is. Rose is constantly shown to be fascinated with Earth and its inhabitants yet has shown to know barely anything including how to interact with humans shown in we need to talk. One excuse of this is well she is an alien off course she wouldn’t know how to interact with humans which is valid if she had just landed on the planet or for some reason Greg is the first person she has interacted with but it is said that he isn't “I was fine with the men, who had came into her life once and again” - Pearl in Its over

But it has been thousands upon thousands of years she should know more about Earth than even some of its natives!… It really doesnt make any sense. 

THE BOOK OF MORMON AUSTRALIA - 20/8/17 PERFORMANCE THOUGHTS

so i won the lottery and i got to see tbom again ?? im still so emotional so i wrote down all my thoughts, tho i probably missed some anyway (its under a read more because this is long)

(the cast for this was jay james moody, ryan bondy, rowan witt, zahra newman, a rly good swing/us covering mafala, morgan palmer covering todds track and justin lonesome covering gotswana)

Keep reading

My thought process was wouldnt it make more sense for the institute to replace their own scientists with copies of themselves? That would be ultimately pretty creepy, it seems like you cant transfer human consciousness into a synth, yet they are the absolute perfect immortal body. Completely indistinguishable from humans except for a chip it seems, yet completly programmable functions from weight and age. Resource wise it doesnt even make any sense why father has kept anyone alive. We also see with most synths in the commonwealth that they do have complete human curiosity and learning capabilities, meaning synth scientists would be just as smart and capable of problem solving as the human counterparts.

Literally this is why i hate the synth arc so much because they made them just to…sweep?

GOOD GAWD ALMIGHTY

THIS GINTAMA CHAPTER GAVE ME SO MANY FEELS
