Martin Guy is facing life in prison for wounding 3 SWAT officers and killing 1 after they attempted to enter his home with a “no-knock” warrant. He was unaware the men were officers; he assumed they were trespassers. The search warrant was for drugs-no drugs were found.

Daniel Martin called the cops for assistance and they killed him on his porch.

We are under attack…

The other day I saw some people talking about local folklore and legends and I decided to share one of my favourites from Scotland. It’s the legend of Am Fear Liath Mòr (Big Grey Man), a strange presence or creature that’s said to haunt the summit of Ben MacDhui, the second highest peak in Scotland.
While Am Fear Liath Mòr can appear as an extremely tall, grey figure, it can also be encountered as a strong presence that causes intense feelings of dread and terror among hikers. Some hikers have turned and seen a huge grey figure looming out of the fog, while others have simply found the terror too much and fled the area. What’s alarming is that a lot of these people are experienced hikers who know the mountain well.
When sighted, the entity seems to follow at a distance, though on one occasion, people driving through the area reported seeing a large creature with an inhuman face chasing their car, keeping pace with them up to speeds of 45mph, and seemingly attempting to get into the car.
This is not the only hint that the entity might be malicious. It has been reported that hikers, driven into panic by the terror that accompanies the presence, have become disorientated in fog and found themselves close to running over the edge of the cliffs at Lurchers Crag. Perhaps most disturbingly of all is the fact that some of the survivors reported being drawn to cliff edges and precipices almost hypnotically.

the secret of nimh 1982

Okay, so real shit? Mrs. Brisby is still one of my heroes. She’s one of the coolest, bravest, and most awesome characters from my childhood, and she was fucking formative.

She sort of got thrown into an adventure of sorts not because she was some sort of brave hero. Not because she wanted glory.

No. She got thrust into a grand fucking adventure and political turmoil while she was just trying to keep her family, and especially her sick son safe.

She was not a brave warrior. She was not spectacularly strong or able.

She was just… some random lady trying to look out for her family.

So, just, yeah. This is probably incoherent, it’s been a long week, and I’ve been going nearly full tilt for like, 11 hours with little rest.

But damn Mrs. Brisby is my fucking hero.

“As I see it, you are living with something that you keep hidden deep inside. Something heavy. I felt it from the first time I met you. You have a strong gaze, as if you have made up your mind about something. To tell you the truth, I myself carry such things around inside. Heavy things. That is how I can see it in you.” Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 (via negromodelo)

Genghis Khan had a government with a code name “yassa” that had a standard of equality towards everybody. He prohibited stealing, defection of soldiers, wife stealing, and other rules which made everything safer. He gave full protection to everybody and had no favorites with anybody.  The Mongol Empire did not emphasize the importance of ethnicity and race in the administrative realm, instead, He believed that appointments and responsibilities should be given by talent and skills not by wealth. 
Mongols were highly tolerant of most religions, and typically sponsored several at the same time. At the time of Genghis Khan in the 13th century, virtually every religion had found converts, from Buddhism to Christianity and Islam. To avoid strife, Genghis Khan set up an institution that ensured complete religious freedom, though he himself was a shamanist. Under his administration, all religious leaders were exempt from taxation, and from public service. Mongol emperors were known for organizing competitions of religious debates among clerics, and these would draw large audiences.

Ten bucks probably feels like a lot of money to him, too. Like this wasn’t an idle bet.

$10 in 1945 is about $130 today
