Pakistani Helmet with Chain mail Neckguard (1820-1840)

Wow, really cool! But there was no Pakistan back then… what region is it from?

Right? It’s really, really cool. Apparently it’s from Lahore, Punjab province (source.

Cool, thank you!

Manga references in Saint Young Men v. 06

In the French translation, Buddha has a metaphysical search not just for “ideas” but for “the gag”, which makes it even funnier that it gets put into such a lofty place.  brickme:

PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!
IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!
Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.
Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.  If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.

If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions

PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!

Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.
Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.
Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.
If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.

OH MY FUCK I HAVE THESE IN MY BACKYARD.

Fucking invasives. Signal boost.

These nasties are all over Europe too. If you’re in Sweden, check with your municipality if you see a jätteloka as they may well have protocols in place to deal with infestations. for-the-flail:

Gayass question

pon-pon—pon:

In a Luffy - Usopp relationship…

who top?

I seriously just got in the fandom this year

and this question has been around forever

Switch. Or just stick to stuff like frottage where there is no topping or bottoming.

(Okay, so “who knows?” or “they’d probably switch” tends to be my standard answer regardless of couple, but I think it’s extra applicable here. Though if they do do buttsex, in the beginning probably Usopp would top because Luffy’s so strong and they’re both inexperienced, so that would be safer.)

I added some stuff to my list of fic recs for One Piece the other day, all in the gen section. They’re not all recent - the one I refer to as “Sanji’s List” is a memorable ficlet from the anonymous ficmeme from way back when. (I also updated my own master list of fics.)

So a friend of mine has brought it to my attention that a particular Japanese school district is seeking to restrict primary/middle schoolers’ access to Hadashi no Gen—otherwise known by its English name, Barefoot Gen. While this is a completely irrelevant post that will undoubtedly get no notes, have absolutely no actual impact, and be a huge waste of time, I’d just like to use Tumblr as an actual blogging platform for once and do some venting.

This is going to be long, so I’ll put this giant, inconsequential waste of a massive text post under a ‘read more’ to spare my followers from having to listen to my illogically passionate ranting regarding this particular topic/series.
