‘Hilda’ was a popular plus-size calendar girl in the 1950s. Illustrator Duane Bryers wanted to draw a ‘plumpy gal pinup’ but wasn’t sure how to sell a plus-size lady, so he portrayed her as a charming, playful, clumsy, barely-dressed redhead. The Hilda calendar series was successful for over three decades, and she’s now resurfaced as a social media icon. Source

Especially when during one of those golf weekends, he hosted a costume party, the theme of which was literally Versailles. This is the kind of shit that if you put it in a novel, your editor would say it was a bit too on the nose.

Humans are a communal species that have banded together and cared for their sick, disabled, and elderly since before we were ever modern man. Resources were shared even as skills specialized. 

Capitalism isn’t natural. A community should not have members dying of starvation or exposure while there is an abundance of resources. That isn’t how it works. That isn’t how it’s supposed to work.

ok so my roommates are anthropology students and their favorite example for debunking the ‘survival of the fittest’ bs is shanidar 1. (x, x, x)

shanidar 1 is a neanderthal who, at a pretty young age, was hit in the head hard enough to blind him. this also led to that side of his brain shutting down and withering his right arm, and possibly crippling his entire right side. not only that but his skeleton also shows that at some point, he broke a bone in his foot and, in addition to the other factors, resulted in a noticeable limp. there are some sources which say he likely had degenerative diseases. (arthritis was really common in neanderthals) 

going off of widespread ideas of “”primitive”” (no longer the word used in anthropology/academia to describe early-modern humans) societies, shanidar probably died really young, deliberately abandoned or killed. i mean, he was severely crippled, blind, etc., he couldn’t contribute anything, he would have been a “”burden to society””, right? 

except he lived to be between 40 and 50 years old. (about ~80 in human years)

this means that his social group had to have taken care of him for a minimum of two or three decades without his ‘contributing’ anything significant to the group. this discovery (and Shanidar III’s) was huge because it basically proves that early humans had a concept of hospice. early modern humans cared for the sick and the elderly, greatly extending their lifespan, simply because they cared

tl;dr: the concept of someone needing to be ‘’useful’’ or ‘’’productive’’’ in society in order to be valued and cared for is a very modern concept and our quasi-predecessors would be ashamed 

Also, Shanidar I was buried with flowers. They cared about him after he was dead, too.

Anlässlich des Merkel-Besuchs bei Trump sind auch ein paar deutsche Journalisten mitgefahren und haben dann einen Kulturschock ausgelöst, als sie … dem Präsidenten Fragen stellten.
US President Donald Trump claimed that German news agency reporter Kristina Dunz was interested in "fake news" when she asked him about isolationist policies. In her report, Dunz later wrote, "It is no longer a custom in the White House that hard, uncomfortable questions receive factual answers."
Das finde ich jetzt noch nicht sonderlich konfrontativ, ehrlich gesagt. Aber es hat gereicht, um die US-Kollegen zu beschämen.
Those were two of the tough questions Trump faced during a press conference Friday with Merkel that led US journalists who cover the White House to praise the tenacity of their German colleagues.

Politico reporter Tara Palmeri admitted her German colleagues posed more substantial questions.

Krass. So schnell fließt die Zivilisation in den Gulli, kaum dass es mal ein bisschen regnet.
Trump was also asked point-blank by one reporter why he keeps making statements he knows are not true. It was a question that DW's Brent Goff said "shocked" US reporters.
Das hingegen ist eine gut gestellte Frage.
The straightforward line of questioning visibly put off Trump, according to Goff.

Update: Ich möchte nochmal ausdrücklich daran erinnern, dass wir hier von deutschen Journalisten reden, die im Inland nicht gerade durch pointierte Fragen auffallen. Das sind die Leute, die sich in der BPK einscheißen, wenn Tilo Jung mal wo nachhakt. Und DIE sollen jetzt plötzlich international vorbildliche Journalisten sein?!

How many altos does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
None, they can’t get that high.

How many sopranos does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

One, she holds it up and waits for the world to revolve around her.

How many singers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Two. An alto to actually do it and a soprano to stand by and ask “isn’t that a little high for you?”

u wanna fucking go

here for this fight


How do you know a soprano is at your door?

She can’t find the key and doesn’t know where to come in

This is the only discourse I’m here for

Calculations show four programmes that face elimination - which tackle homelessness, unemployment among over-55s, participation in the arts and helping the poor access higher education - could be maintained at the cost of the President’s trips to his private Florida resort over the course of four years.
