When you flip bats upside down they become exceptionally sassy dancers [x].

I have been laughing at this for at least 5 minutes straight.

Chiroptera choreography!

That is some white boy dancing if ever I’ve seen it. I mean, that’s almost exactly how I look when I try to dance.

There should be a punch card for every time you want to post something, and then consider the Tumblr outrage it might cause and delete it all. Once you’ve filled a whole card, they’ll come and rip your tongue out. That way, you’ll never speak out of turn again.

There are a lot of good things to say about the people of Missoula, but they drive like they’ve got nowhere to be. I was in the passing lane on the local highway, going five miles under the speed limit (because so was the car in front of me), and I was still fucking passing people.

caligula had anime eyes

wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot

yep
here’s a statue of Augustus

and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored 


i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art

"I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"

And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.
Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.
(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)

Romans were tacky as fuck. Imagine the state of Rome back then.
