grande axe

Non voglio che mi baci più, e nemmeno che mi porti a ballare: non li sai più guarire i miei giorni, ormai. E quando respiri piano, ormai nemmeno più ti sento, perché non voglio far più caso a te. Eri l'unica ragione per arrivare fino in fondo, ed ora sei l'unico motivo per cui ho toccato il fondo. La sostanza dei miei giorni è ormai vuota come quelle notti, quel vizio che non voglio smettere, in cui vado al Roxy Bar per bere il nostro rum e pera. Quando ti guardo nulla ha più senso ed il mondo sembra solo più cattivo. Ti avrei dedicato tutto, i luoghi visti, le cose dette: ed invece resti solo il mio sogno distrutto. Sapevo che sarebbe arrivato, dopo viaggi condivisi insieme, il giorno in cui avresti fatto a meno di me; ma va sempre così… Ti aspetti il Sole e cade pioggia. Alle sei di mattina, uscendo di casa, col vento che soffia, non scrivo più nulla per te e non rido più pensando a ciò che siamo stati. Vorrei però alle volte sapere a cosa stavi pensando in quel momento in cui chiudesti gli occhi e mi dicesti che eravamo il più grande spettacolo dopo il Big Bang. Continuerò comunque e sempre a cantare durante la notte per te, sentendoti nell'aria, nonostante fuori sia buio e tu non sia qui con me. Non mi rispondi più al telefono ed appendi ad un filo ogni mia speranza; non avrei mai creduto di poter perder la testa per te ma, in un modo tutto tuo, hai reso la mia vita bella da morire. Sei fuggito via lasciando improvvisamente un vuoto nella mia vita, senza risposte ai miei perché, e mi vien da pensare cosa ormai mi resta di te. Saltavamo spesso la parte dei bacini e dei ti amo, in quel momento ci sentivamo come figli delle stelle, protetti da un chissà quale angelo, che ci permetteva di far l'amore escludendo il nostro tempo dal mondo. Eravamo diventati anche noi come quella gente che spera perché, mentre l'umanità si poneva quesiti sulle dinamiche del mondo, noi pensavamo ad una vita in cui non avremo mai dormito; una di quelle vite in cui non si sa nulla, mai.
Ho provato a pensarmi col mondo in mano, ma infondo senza te, dov'è che vado?
Continuerò ad esserti amica, seppur gelosa (come tu ben sai), e sembrerà una contraddizione… Ma non so lasciarti andare. Non so ben parlare d'amore, ma questo è un modo per dar voce alla mia emozione. Ma se vivi un'altra storia, ora con chi stai? Lei ti dirà che ti trova unico?
Ho pregato Roma di darmi una mano a farmi dare un sì, ma a quanto pare non è bastato.
Ma se vorrai ancora, ti porterò via con me, in una notte che diverrà fantastica, il nuovo inizio del mondo in cui potremo toccare il cielo ed essere due ragazzi fortunati a cui è stato regalato un sogno.

I’ll be salty forever into the future that simon belmont not only didn’t get in smash but wasn’t even considered by most people

Boyo got a move set for that shit already! Got a whip! Got throwing axe! Got grand cross!

Սպիրու Կոստաքեի Հարեթ
Spiru C. Haret

Romanian Armenian mathematician, astronomer and politician. He made a fundamental contribution to the n-body problem in celestial mechanics by proving that using a third degree approximation for the disturbing forces implies instability of the major axes of the orbits, and by introducing the concept of secular perturbations in relation to this. (Proved that planetary motion is not absolutely stable) 

As a politician, during his three terms as Minister of Education, Haret ran deep reforms, building the modern Romanian education system. He was made a full member of the Romanian Academy in 1892.

He also founded the Astronomical observatory in Bucharest, The crater Haret on the Moon is named after him. The Spiru Haret University, a private university in Bucharest, Romania, bears the name of a scientist and reformer of the Romanian education.

Born 15 February 1851 in Iaşi, Moldavia to an Armenian family, He showed talent for mathematics at a very young age, publishing two textbooks, one in algebra and one in trigonometry when he was still in high school. Whilst in his second year studying physics and mathematics the in the University of Bucharest, he became a teacher of mathematics in Nifon Seminary.

After graduation, Haret won a scholarship competition organized by Titu Maiorescu and went to Paris in order to study mathematics at the Sorbonne. There he earned a mathematics diploma in 1875 and a physics diploma in 1876. Two years later he earned his Ph.D. by defending his thesis, Sur l’invariabilité des grandes axes des orbites planétaires (On the invariability of the major axis of planetary orbits), in front of examiners led by Victor Puiseux. In this work he proved a result fundamental for the n-body problem in astronomy, the thesis being published in Vol. XVIII of the Annales de l'Observatoire de Paris. Haret was the first Romanian to obtain a Ph.D. degree in Paris, (though he was of full Armenian descent)

After his return to Romania in 1878, Haret abandoned scientific research and dedicated the rest of his life to improving Romanian education, which was heavily underdeveloped at the time, both as professor and as politician. He only published an article on the secular acceleration of the Moon in 1880 and one on Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (1912). And in In 1910 he published Social mechanics, which used mathematics to explain social behaviour (somehow anticipating the fictional “psychohistory” branch of mathematics developed by Hari Seldon, the fictional character of Isaac Asimov‘s Foundation, published 40 years later).

He was appointed professor of rational mechanics at the Science Faculty in Bucharest. The next year Haret became a correspondent member of the Romanian Academy. He kept the professorship at the Science Faculty until his retirement in 1910.  As Minister of Education he ran a complete reform, basically building the modern Romanian education system

Dammi sogni e prendi certezze.
Prendi tutto e dammi le carezze.
Ogni giorno penso:
non è vero che il grande amore deve essere perfetto.

E ora io ho bisogno di te per dormire la notte,
basta che mi stringi forte tutto va a posto
ed è come quando tu nel casino che c'è trovi sempre le cose..
e oltre le mie chiavi trovi il senso che avevo perso dentro me.

—  Caramelle - J-Ax ft Neffa
J ax, il mio primo vero amore.
C’era ogni volta che mi sentivo sola, c’era quando gli amici mi abbandonavano puntandomi il dito contro, c’era quando non mi sentivo abbastanza per i miei genitori, amici, professori, mi sentivo anche io nata sbagliata e facevo anche io a pugni con il mondo. Sempre. Ancora adesso. Cantava i pensieri che io non riuscivo a urlare, trasformava in parole taglienti tutti i pugni che la vita mi sferrava ogni giorno. Lui c’è stato, mi ha salvata e io non gliel’ho mai detto. Non m’importa se dicono che è un fallito, che è commerciale, che è un venduto. È il mio eroe, un po sfigato, ma è il mio eroe perché anche io mi sono sempre sentita, come lui un’esclusa.
Non voglio ne principi azzurri, ne il grande amore. J ax mi ha salvata ed io gliene sarò sempre grata.

Reactions, thoughts, and a kinda sorta PLL finale recap

Why the hell was Mary Drake in that house?

Was she keeping an eye on her “daughter” Spencer?

I’ve never seen Star Wars, but was this scene kinda like “Luke, I am your father”??

Does Spencer have a twin? Mary kinda hinted at it when she went in Spence’s house for tea

We all knew it was Spencer right?! That caffeine comment. The hair.

But wait Marlene said the identity of the child will remain a mystery until 7b..umm then is Mary just crazy and thinks Spencer is her kid??

Noel said “you know too much” Is that a throwback to Maya?

“Miss Aria You’re A Killer Not Ezra’s Wife” Maya also knew.

Does this mean Noel and Jenna and his merry gang killed her and not that psycho Derek..I mean Nate??

Of course Noel made a grand ax-it..get it?! exit!

How are the girls going to explain that to the cops? They better not touch that ax. (Fingerprints. Ladies, remember that.) Or try to hide the body/head.

Jenna’s got a gun.
Her whole world’s come undone
From lookin’ straight at the sun (or firecrackers in her case)
haha this was seriously perfection. Her listening for them as they tried to keep quiet. Her bumping into Noel’s head. Her shooting or maybe not shooting Spencer?? (”Did you shoot Spencer? Are you A.D.?”)

My ship on the show gets the Titanic/Romeo & Juliet treatment. Spencer will never let go.

Did A.D. run Toby off the road? Why’d they have to kill the best guy on the show?? Is he really dead? Are they doing the usual and just tricking us?? What was Toby going to say in that text to Spence?

Remember when Toby fake died and Spencer completely lost it. Idk how she’s/I’m going to deal this time. It’s going to be hella intense.

That ultimate goodbye though. So damn cute. Book off her side table. Him remembering that fact. The house he built her in the background. (She’s the one that bought it right??) Spencer asking for a one last goodbye kiss. FEELS.

If Toby really is dead, can the last episode of PLL be a huge flash forward into the future where Spencer dies an old woman warm in her bed and they have a titanic style reunion and like Jack and Rose they meet at a clock but the one in the Rosewood town and they do their spinning kiss and get married???

God, Paige, go away. Why are you back?? A swim coach position really?! You left Rosewood so fast bc you were scared. Please do it again and leave.

And Emily. First she had no lovers. Now she has all these girls pining for her. Stop dragging on poor coffee shop/pot gummy girl and just be with Alison. Or vice versa. Don’t take Paige’s shit. She sucks.

And ALI IS PREGNANT?! WITH EMILY’S BABY?!! Let’s not forget “A” stole her eggs. What do you think happened to them? Of course, they were going to use them somehow. Who’s the baby daddy? Archer? Wren??

Okay, I loved Caleb’s little When Harry Met Sally love speech, but let’s be honest he legit just confessed his love to Spencer through her door and Hanna heard the ENTIRE THING. He cried damn it. He obviously meant every word. And let’s also not forgot his leaving game..when things get tough, he clears all of his things out of the shared apt and just leaves without saying goodbye. Asshole. But hey, I’m happy for them.

Hanna is still a little sketchy. I mean slicing someone’s skin for a blood test and not even cringing. Who are you? Also kidnapping someone like it’s NBD and like does she have super strength?? How the hell did she carry his dead weight body there?! Idk all pretty/little sketchy to me.

Aria oh Aria. Having to see your fiancé reunite with his missing love and kissing her on your TV after you just cooked him a special dinner. Damn that sucks. I mean if it doesn’t work out at least she has Jason to fall back on. I mean he has a fucked up family, but hey, so does Ezra. Also, he just seems a whole lot nicer. Doesn’t she remember the fact that Ezra knew her before he met her and dated Ali and wrote a whole secret book about her life. God, he’s terrible.

Funny fact- while watching, I had to clean my glasses off bc they were all smudged up and it was the scene Sydney was in, so I legit didn’t see her at all.

So Charlotte’s plans always involved them. She wanted to torture them then kill them in that fire but Ali saved them then she tortured them again in the dollhouse then she died then her minions tortured and then wanted to kill them again. Make up ya damn mind.

Yes, I still love this show and yes, I can’t wait for the last 10 episodes.

J'ai longé ton corps
Épousé ses méandres
Je me suis emporté
Transporté
Par-delà les abysses
Par-dessus les vergers
Délaissant les grands axes
J´ai pris la contre-allée
Je me suis emporté
Transporté
