New cover for Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. “The spine is screen-printed with a matchbook striking paper surface, so the book itself can be burned.”
WHO THE FUCK WOULD BURN A BOOK

i remember back in first grade my school did this thing every year called a readathon where everyone wore pajamas to school and we had blankets and pillows and we built little nests on the floor and literally did nothing but read all day with periodical hot chocolate breaks and it was ENFORCED that everyone had to read the whole time i think i just defined paradise
Can we instill this in like high school and colleges once a week at the very least. Please?

can you imagine remus harping on sirius all the time for smelling like a wet dog, and sirius one day gets so tired of it that he just bathes himself in amortentia so he’ll smell like things remus loves. and then he just smugly goes up to remus, “what do i smell like now?” and remus just rolls his eyes like, “you smell like chocolate and wet dog, nice try covering it up.”
This awesome video features Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, aka 2Cellos, playing their phenomenal “BaRock style” arrangement of the hard rock classic for a completely bewildered 17th century audience. The concept is wonderful, but the actual performance is astonishing.

- Louis Nicolas le Tonnerlier de Breteuil, on his daughter, the raddest person in history, Émilie du Châtelet. Emilie was a scientist in the 18th century who proved Newton’s ideas on velocity wrong. She also played a role in helping Einstein figure out E = mc2 with E=mv2 (via intuitiveunderstanding)
Also, “frightens away the suitors” = BS. Emilie du Chatelet was a hustler. Fucking Voltaire was her personal man-candy. Her husband was apparently totally cool with it. The historical record did not preserve evidence for or against a threesome.
#girls don’t you go feeling like you don’t got any role models ‘cause you got role models like damn#it just takes a little more work to find out about them is all

Rape culture is people describing an exact definition of rape, saying that they would do it, but not calling it rape.
"I think it would be cool to take something that belongs to someone else without asking them, but I would never steal."
"I think it would be cool to do something that intentionally causes someone’s death, but I would never murder."
Fucking hell. This right here is the fucking problem.
This is what we are talking about when we say “teach people not to rape”. This person has grown up in a world knowing that rape is wrong but not really understanding what rape even is. They have grown up in a way that they enjoy the idea of raping someone, but they don’t want to be held accountable for it.
