for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever
This is my super sweet basset hound, Ladybird. She enjoys kisses and sleeping on me.
all the women out there, pleease do not get your nipples removed! (unless they ugly, then its fine)
Can someone explain why it’s trendy for guys to have their nipples removed?
it’s not trendy? ahaha men are not supposed to have nipples anyway but since everyone is a female at first in the womb you just kinda get them, men don’t need nipples, they literally have no use but to sit there so why not remove them? it’s not trendy, haha it’s a heavy modification that people think a while about because you can’t unremove your niplples.
I will lose weight and I will be skinny. LGAJIOGDHSOGFDLGKSF
SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
im laughing because every single comment on that article says its a terrible idea. not one person agrees and that’s saying something
So I just remembered this thing that happened when I was a Sophomore in High School and it’s not that exciting or funny or anything it mostly shows how naive I was still and how much of a dick my ex boyfriend was:
We had this kid in our class named Levi and he was kinda pudgy and had brown poofy fro hair, he kinda kept to himself but he talked to my ex and some of the other men people in that class, kinda frequently and one day while the teacher wasn’t being a nazi my ex told me that Levi wanted to own a bank when he got older because he was Jewish, and I totally believed him because owning a bank is a weird thing to lie about I guess? So since I sat behind Levi I asked him why he wanted to own a bank and he had no idea what I was talking about so I was like “Why do you want to own a bank, that’s boring what’s the point?” and he just didn’t understand, so I said “My ex told me that you wanted to own a bank when you grew up because you were Jewish.” and he just looked over at my ex and that’s when I realized he didn’t want to own a bank my ex was just an asshole, ah and Levi wasn’t really Jewish.
