…C'EST FERMÉÉÉÉÉÉÉÉ!

I’ve watched this about 157 times and it doesn’t stop being hilarious

“Aphorisms — To be read out loud every night before going to bed. Even when inebriated:

1. Don’t be afraid of ageing. As the saying goes, don’t be afraid of anything but fear itself.

2. Find ‘your’ perfume before you turn thirty. Wear it for the next thirty years.

3. No one should ever see your gum when you talk or laugh.

4. If you own only one sweater, make sure it’s cashmere.

5. Wear a black bra under a white blouse, like two notes on a sheet of music.

6. One must live with the opposite sex, not against them.

7. Be unfaithful: cheat on your perfume, but only on cold days.

8. Go to the theatre, to museums and to concerts as often as possible: it gives you a healthy glow.

9. Be aware of your qualities and your faults. Cultivate them in private but don’t obsess.

10. Make it look easy. Everything you do should seem effortless and graceful.

11. Not too much makeup, too many colours, too many accessories..

12. Take a deep breath and keep it simple.

13. Your look should always have one thing left undone — the devil is in the details.

14. Be your own knight in shining armour.

15. Cut your own hair or ask your sister to do it for you. Of course you know celebrity hairdressers, but only as friends.

16. Always be fuckable: When standing in line at the bakery on a Sunday morning, buying champagne in the middle of the night or even picking the kids up from school. You never know.

17. Either go all grey or no grey hair. Salt and pepper is for the table.

18. Fashion rules the world and Parisians rule fashion. Fine, it may not be true. But the world still needs fairytales.”

French Trench Cleaners c.1915

Picture of three French soldiers equipped for trench warfare, using metal skullcaps, body armor, a 1886 Lebel rifle, a MAS 1873 revolver and what appears to be a vast collection of captured German impact stick grenades.
Notice the use of tactical moustaches, a staple of European powers.

Aujourd'hui c'est la St. Valentin, il y a ceux qui vont se réveiller avec des messages cutes sur leur téléphone et puis il y a moi dont la batterie est full et qui doit mettre à jour iCloud.

MAS Mle49-56 military rifle

Made by the Manufacture d’Arme de Saint-Etienne in France c.1956-70′s - serial number G81988.
7,5x54mm MAS Mle1929C ten-round removable box magazine, direct impingement gas operated semi-automatic, Mle 1953 APX 806L scope mounted on a rail on the left side of the receiver, muzzle adapted to fire rifle grenades, with accompanying folding grenade sights.

The 1956 modification shortened the barrel but also and most noticeably the foregrip of the rifle, making it a very compact and sturdy battle rifle.

Moodboard M&M’s + Seven Deadly Sins - LUST

Feels so good being bad
There’s no way I’m turning back
Now the pain is my pleasure
Cause nothing could measure

Love is great, love is fine
Out the box, out of line
The affliction of the feeling
Leaves me wanting more

Cause I may be bad
But I’m perfectly good at it
Sex in the air
I don’t care
I love the smell of it
Sticks and stones
May break my bones
But chains and whips
Excite me

Pistolet Mle1777 2nd Type

Designed by Jean-Baptiste Vaquette de Gribeauval in 1777, made by the Manufacture d’Arme de St-Etienne c.1784-1792.
17,1mm/.67 ball, flintlock, single shot, smoothbore, belt hook.

Gribeauval pursued his quest for compactness and efficiency, this time not with artillery guns but cavalry pistols. The ramrod is stored deep in the stock, allowing the foregrip and barrel bands to be removed entirely, keeping the balance of the gun towards the hand of the soldier.
This system was later applied to a hussar carbine, the Mle1786.
