end of civilization


MARVEL PROBABLY GONNA KILL TONY STARK at the end of Civil War II and I’m in pain. I started read comics when CWII started and it’s so awful. Why they have to do this NOW?. Why I have to read comics NOW? Okey, if you look at this close it makes perfect sense. Civil War II is made bc of MCU Civil War and this film made me read this comics. THAT MEANS that Marvel hurt me purposely…

FUCK YOU MARVEL i want my 1$ back.


Donald Trump’s Ghostwriter Tells All
In “The Art of the Deal,” Tony Schwartz helped create the myth that Trump is a charming business genius. Now he calls him unfit to lead.

“I put lipstick on a pig,” he said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”

If he were writing “The Art of the Deal” today, Schwartz said, it would be a very different book with a very different title. Asked what he would call it, he answered, “The Sociopath.”

In April 1865, at the bloody, bitter end of the Civil War, Ebenezer Nelson Gilpin, a Union cavalryman, wrote in his diary, “Everything is chaos here. The suspense is almost unbearable.”

“We are reduced to quarter rations and no coffee,” he continued. “And nobody can soldier without coffee.”

If war is hell, then for many soldiers throughout American history, it is coffee that has offered some small salvation. Hidden Kitchens looks at three American wars through the lens of coffee: the Civil War, Vietnam and Afghanistan.

Sundaland and the deep time of human civilisations

“… a place that, as the Ice Age ended, suffered a great Flood and its people dispersed, or clung on in the remaining lands left above the water. Hence we find the fossils of the “Hobbits” in a small part of Indonesia; Flores. And then much later have Jared Diamond, amateur anthropologist and popular science writer, remarking on the New Guineans having independently discovering the miracle of agriculture. (Another key part of Guns, Germs, and Steel.)

“Viewed through a deep time lens - versus a static world view - it’s no surprise when one thinks about the former citizens of Sundaland taking their knowledge with them on their boats and settling permanently amongst the populations they’d only perhaps made sporadic contact with before.

“So many civilisations and cultures are filled with creation myths of people arriving to teach them the arts of agriculture and building. As Gordon is at pains to point out, as he refolds the map of history to include the geography of this now sunken land, they wouldn’t necessarily be legendary people of Atlantis or Mu (and definitely not ALIENS), arriving with civilisational starter-kits, uplifting them to the next level of SimEarth… but far more likely, assisting already nascent development along these lines and merely accelerating its progress. That the Bronze Age was no outlier; the world - all of it! - has been interconnected and sharing culture and technology basically the whole time.”

It’s Summer! Time To Go Camping With Your Dad And His Friends!

You are one teenager. You are sitting quietly, thinking of the end of civilization, when suddenly you find yourself near the whereabouts of your dad. “Let’s go camping,” says your dad. “It’s the hot month of Summer and you need to become an adult! Nothing turns a teenaged nothing into a middle-aged everything quite like a trip to the woods with an adult dad like me. Come live in a tent with me and I’ll teach you how to be a grown-up.”

Have fun!
