today my friend in class calculated that Gaston eats 420 eggs a week (21900/year).  She than went on to ask how Gaston affords that many eggs if he lives in a “poor, provincial town.” I said that Gaston probably has 5 dozen chickens and that LeFou takes care of them all like their his children and each morning he wakes up at 4:00 am to collect 60 eggs for Gaston.

The Abduction Of Betty and Barney Hill

On September 19th, 1961 Betty and Barney Hill were driving home from their vacation to Niagara Falls and Montreal. It was just passed 10:00 at night when Betty noticed a bright light moving around in the sky. To her it appeared to be a moving star. She convinced Barney to stop the car so they could take a better look at the object. They both observed through binoculars and saw a craft with flashing multi-colored lights flying in the sky. As it came closer they could see beings piloting the craft. The object started coming towards the Hills who quickly got into their car and sped off.

As they drove down the road they could no longer see the craft and thought they had outrun it. They quickly noticed that 2 hours had passed and they were 35 miles farther down the road than they last remember being. They have no recollection of what occurred in the previous two hours. They were spooked by their sudden memory loss but continued home and went to bed. Betty reported the sighting to Pease Air Force Base the following morning who confirmed with her that the object was seen on their radar. Betty started having nightmares that she and Barney were taken aboard a ship against their will.

It was suggested by Air Force Intelligence Officer Major James Macdonald that the couple go under regressive hypnosis to find out what truly happened the night of the sighting. After six months of them both having sessions with psychiatrist Dr. Benjamin Simon, it was concluded by the doctor that the Hills were truly abducted and taken aboard an UFO. It was not concluded that the UFO was of extraterrestrial origin. However due to the hypnosis the Hills were able to recall many details. Their vehicle stalled as the craft landed in front of their vehicle. From the vehicle emerged “bald headed alien beings, about five foot tall, with greyish skin, pear shaped heads and slanted cat-like eyes.”

The Hills were taken aboard the craft and given medical examinations. Hair, skin and nail samples were taken. Betty had a “pregnancy test” done which she had a long needle inserted into her navel. Barney said they took semen specimens from him. The Hills also claimed that the beings had no perception of time or color, what exactly this means is unknown. Betty asked where the beings came from, and she was shown a 3-dimensional star map. They were then released and were put under hypnosis and told to forget what they just experienced. The last thing they remember from the experience was an orange light in the sky flying away until it disappeared.

Under one of the hypnotic sessions Betty drew the star map she was shown on the ship. People thought she was lying because there was no matching group of stars in the sky discovered at the time. It wasn’t until 1969 when astronomers took an interest in the map she drew that they discovered that the star cluster that she drew was indeed a legitimate group of stars. Nobody knew it existed back when Betty drew the map, it was discovered years after. The cluster is beyond Zeta Reticuli I and Zeta Reticuli II. How is it possible she knew the existence of this cluster when nobody on Earth was able to observe it until powerful enough telescopes were invented years later?

The Betty and Barney Hill case is surely one of the most credible and and well documented UFO abductions in history. The Hills were both very respected and had high levels of education. They held great jobs and were viewed highly by their peers. The involvement of high ranking military personnel, multiple journalists and psychologists who all believe their story and put their own credibility on the line to defend the Hills only adds to their credibility. The Hills were truly abducted that night, whether it truly was done by extraterrestrial life from outer space or by something else is unknown. And it may forever remain that way.

Je comprends pas pourquoi tout le monde essaie de descendre Macron par tous les moyens. (Whirlpool, une de Libération...) Est ce qu'ils se rendent pas compte de qui il y a en face ou? En 2002 pendant l'entre-deux-tours est-ce que les gens cherchaient à constamment descendre Chirac? Non putain, ils avaient d'autres soucis, et on a les même aujourd'hui! Je comprends pas. Je ne comprends pas comment on a pu "normaliser" le FN comme ça, comment on a pu leur donner de la légitimité. C'est dégoûtant.

Je suis exactement dans le même cas que toi, ça me donne envie de hurler ce qu’il se passe, entre les hashtag type #JamaisMacron ou #SansMoiLe7Mai, la une de Libé qui est ???? Sans déconner qu’est-ce qu’on en a a faire de son repas à la Rotonde ?? Y’a le FN au second tour, 20% de la France a voté pour eux mais rien à foutre on va faire la une sur Macron qui a le malheur de célébrer son accession au 2nd tour de la Présidentielle ? A quel moment on a foiré à ce point là, je me demande. Et alors Whirlpool mais ne me lancez même pas sur Whirlpool, j’arrive pas à comprendre que tout le monde, les éditos politiques compris, soient tombés dans le panneau de Le Pen? “Marine Le Pen gagne la bataille de Whirlpool” non ??! Elle a rien gagné du tout elle a instrumentalisé la détresse des salariés, leur a servit les mensonges habituels et s’est mise en scène, c’est tout ce qu’elle à fait. Macron a passé 1h15 à chercher des solutions avec l’intersyndicale, et quand il est allé rencontrer les salariés sur places et sous les siflets il s’est pas démonté il a même réussit à retourner ça à son avantage en leur parlant dignement! Mais non, on retiendra que les photos et vidéos de Le Pen toute sourire sur un parking entouré de militants. J’ai envie de vomir. On continue à l’attaquer sur des polémiques à la con, on se focalise sur sa vie privée (@ Quotidien et les reportages sur le paparazzi qui prend les photos du couple Macron, on s’en fout bordel de merde vous devriez être en plein branle bas de combat contre le FN putain parce que croyez moi Marine passe vous êtes les premiers à sauter), sur qui il invite à ses repas, sur son passé de banquier, sur ses erreurs de langage, sur ses coups de sang pendant son dernier meeting (ENFIN putain enfin il se réveille, enfin quelqu’un qui parle du FN comme on devrai en parler depuis le début) mais personne pour le soutenir ou dire qu’il sera jamais égal à Le Pen. C’est incroyable, je comprend pas, je comprend pas comment on en est arrivé là, comment on peut banaliser le FN à ce point là, comment on peut refuser d’appeler à voter Macron, comment on peut risquer que le FN gagne, comment on peut ne serait-ce que discuter sur “est-ce que Le Pen est vraiment pire que Macron” ?? J’en ai rien a foutre que tu puisse pas le blairer parce que c’est un banquier (meilleur argument d’ailleurs wow), parce qu’il a été au gouvernement, parce qu’il est libéral, c’est du FN qu’on parle bordel de merde, le parti fondé par des sympathisants nazis, basé sur la haine, anti-républicain, anti-démocratique, le FN quoi! Je suis en pleine hallucination c’est pas possible autrement. Je comprends pas, ça m’énerve, j’ai peur et si le 7 c’est Le Pen qui l’emporte, que tout les abstentionnistes aillent se planquer parce que je leur réserverai le même sort que ceux qui auront voté FN. 

Allez. Voter. Bordel. De. Merde.

C’est toujours un peu nul de publier des vidéos ytb sur tumblr parce que les gens ont la flemme de les regarder et c’est normal, mais j’avais envie de caser cette chanson par là pour me rappeler plus tard quand je me perdrai ici à quel point je n’ai pas arrêté de l’écouter pendant au moins un mois (parce que c’est pas fini) et à quel point c’est le réconfort et la joie. Cet album m’aura accompagnée pendant toute ma convalescence post-rupture et autant ce que j’ai pu écouté en Janvier (la BO de La La Land, de Vaiana) me rend triste parce que j’étais en PLS autant Ed Sheeran c’est le retour du bonheur et de la vitalité et je l’aime et je suis bien heureuse qu’il m’ait maintenue en vie en me donnant envie de prendre ma guitare à 2h du matin pour jouer Shape Of You ou cette chanson que j’aime tellement tellement tellement.
