That’s the nicest thing I’ve seen today.
imagine being that one guy who broke an 11 hour kindness chain
Maybe nobody was behind him. At least that’s what I’d like to think.
“A little bit of Monica in my life,
A little bit of Erica by my side,
A little bit of Rita is all I need,
A little bit of Tina is what I see,
A little bit of Sandra in the sun,
A little bit of Mary all night long,
A little bit of Jessica, here I am…”
If you don’t know this reference, you’re definitely too young for me.
You know you sang it in your head.
I sang it in my head holy shit
how long did this take
I LITERALLY BEGAN TO SING IT
The Apple logo was not influenced by Turing, unfortunately. Both the company and the designer of the logo have said so (check Turing’s wikipedia pahe for sources, I’ll edit try to add them here later). Also, Stephen Fry asked Steve Jobs if the logo was influenced by Turing, to which he replied “God, we wish it were”. (Source: some episode of QI) I wanted to point this out because I want Turing to be remembered as a mathemarician, code breaker and the father of computer science, not the guy who influenced the apple logo.
In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.
isn’t there a part of the bible where god gets mad at a fig tree for not having any figs on it and curses the fig tree?
yeah there legit is that’s 100% true
Oh my god
last time we reblogged this we got anon hate from the christian community. You guys really are passionate about your figs.
…and I always will be.
Hans + saying the one thing he knows will break each sister
Gotta love how Disney has created one of the most realistic portrayals of a sociopath in recent history, and it’s actually terrifying.
that is why he is the scariest villain of Disney to date. because he was “normal” just like the rest of us.
For me the scariest Disney villains are Judge Frollo, Hans, and Mother Gothel. Because they’re all so realistic. We see them in our everyday lives. Judge Frollo is the corrupt politician who uses their power to persecute others, Hans is the con artist who plays with people’s feelings to get what he wants, and Gothel is the emotionally abusive parent.
I agree with all of these, and I’d have to add Gaston to the list, and possibly at the top. Gaston is the man who was rejected by a woman and then decides to hurt others because of it. Is there anything more relevant to society right now?
Perfect addition! I can’t believe I forgot about Gaston!
Judge Frollo is terrifying not just because he is the corrupt politician, but because he, like Gaston, is also the man who got rejected and tbh he was more terrifying under those circumstances than Gaston. As a religious person, he also scares me because it shows how corrupt the church is and how sanctimonious members can be. Also, he’s super racist and had genocidal plans. AND he was similar to Mother Gothel, he even used similar techniques with Quasimodo except he was far more abrasive and didn’t try to disguise his intentions.
