Anonymous said: what actually happened at dashcon to make it so awful? ive seen lots of stuff making fun of it and complaining, but nothing explaining why

officialunitedstates:

It is one of the biggest errors in world history and here’s why:

  • Although starting in the middle of summer with a few small battles, it eventually dragged on for almost six more months into a brutal winter
  • The Russians’ scorched earth policy surprised the French and made the French’s advances much more treacherous and costly
  • Napoleon’s thirst for a full victory were impossible to satisfy because the Russians refused to engage in any prolonged battles, instead wisely choosing to use guerrilla tactics to decimate an already broken, famished, and sickened French Army.
  • Over 17,000 French troops lost their lives each month during the disastrous campaign

"average convention scams attendees out of $100 a year” factoid actualy just statistical error. average convention scams attendees out of $0 per year. Dashcon Georg, who lives in ballpit & scams attendees out of $17,000 each year, is an outlier adn should not have been counted

if tumblr is so accepting why is it that i, dashcon,

Dashcon: I came out to have a good time in the ball pit and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.

"My relationship with Maggie Smith; well, she got me the job at Potter, practically. So for anyone who doesn’t know that story, I basically owe everything to Maggie Smith, because I worked with her on David Copperfield and then she came on to Potter as McGonagall and said to the director: "You need to audition this boy." So I kind of owe her everything, so to Maggie I just say my fairy grandmother." - Daniel Radcliffe

Mark Harris is the best about constantly pointing out gender (and minority) discrimination in the language of film/TV criticism.

Reblog if you prefer the Moffat era of Doctor who (revival series)

Yes but I think I will always prefer whoever is current, gradually getting less satisfied with them as they repeat themselves too many times/make individual choices that irk me and that pile up. When Moffat gets replaced I guarantee you my first impulse will be “FINALLY! A BREATH OF FRESH AIR” and then a season and a half in I’ll start going “gosh I’m kind of tired of this” and then the Doctor will regenerate and I’ll be happy again, but then eventually it will be kind of blah again.

In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain. So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.

Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation. Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen, began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the approaching army.

When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.

The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a stick.

That’s one hell of a portrait.

hitting shit with a stick

This is maybe the best portrait of anyone that I’ve ever seen, ever.
