Bill: Whether or not his wife is a Cylon, she’s nothing but trouble and I wanted to keep her away from him as long as I could.
Lee: Then why did you bring her aboard the ship?
Bill: Because she’s his wife. And I couldn’t refuse her access to her own husband without causing suspicion. [Saul and Ellen enter the room] Besides, I wanted her close to me.
Ellen: I told you! I told you he wanted me.
A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a “fake,” the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday.
Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country’s 11 official languages, according to the federation.
The unidentified man seen around the world on television next to leaders like U.S. President Barack Obama “was moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for,” said Bruno Druchen, the federation’s national director. (Photo: AP Photo/ Evan Vucci)

I actually wasn’t interested in history until I got to college and decided to take a medieval europe class in my first term. Instead of the empirical, ‘there is one truth and one picture’ event-based teaching I had previously, I learned that historiography is based on the recognition of epistemological weaknesses—there is no objective truth to find—just millions of lenses to view the past with. Once I started looking at history this way, I realized that history is really sweeping movements and tiny stories that help craft a larger narrative. As someone who loves storytelling of all kinds, historiography and I really ~click~.
I don’t remember umm it was early 2010 or late 2009 and I wanted to look at Harry Potter gifs or something lmao. I followed all those trash blogs like absolute-best-posts and added THIS after posts i liked. I like to think I’m better at blogging now. I’ve never moved blogs, just deleted most of the old and embarrassing stuff :D
anecdote of my choooice hmmm
so a few years ago we taught my dog how to full-on howl when we start making howling noises, and so when he does his happy nose whining whenever my dad comes home we can fairly easily turn it into howling. that’s the only time he’ll howl. however, the other day my dad started sneezing (my dad has extremely loud sneezes triggered by bright light/sunlight, which actually disqualified him from the draft due to Lack of Stealth) and after about the third sneeze, my dog started howling. just sitting on the floor howling up at my dad who continued to sneeze for a full minute as my dog howled the entire time.
here are my dogs for improved envisioning of this scenario. the howling one is the one in front. his name is sam.
