Now Playing Tracks

whitegirlsaintshit:

I remember I had a video of me all naked and cocoa butter’d up listening to “Aruarian dance” by Nujabes and someone messaged me like “do you even know where that song is from, or did you just find something cool to play while you sat around naked?”
like, nawl I googled “that one song that sounds like dunnnnn dun dun dun dun dun dunnnnnn bada dun nuh dun dun”

Is there still a video though….. that’s the most important thing.

The single most badass photo ever. Dr. Leonid Rogozov performing his own appendectomy

This is even more badass than it looks. This happened in 1961, while Dr. Rogozov was the only doctor on an Antarctic Expedition. When he got ill the nearest Russian station was more than 1000 km away and nearby foreign stations had no aircraft.

Even then it wouldn’t have mattered because he did this in a fucking blizzard, with a local anaesthetic  while he had a driver and a meteorologist hand him crap and hold a mirror. It took him two hours, with breaks because of “general weakness.”

He was back working 2 weeks after he did this. Legend.

My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”

“give your daughters difficult names. give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. my name makes you want to tell me the truth. my name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.” - Warsan Shire
