(TIME) Washington D.C.’s City Council voted Tuesday to decriminalize possession of up to one ounce of marijuana, scaling back penalties for the drug in the nation’s capital at a time when states are increasingly doing the same despite wariness from the federal government.
Mayor Vincent Gray has publicly supported the measure and is expected to sign it shortly.
A 2500 year old mummy that had some amazing tattoos.
NO FUCKING WAY.
YO HOLD ON.
IT GETS BETTER.
This mummy, found in the Altai mountains of Siberia, is actually that of a young woman who died at about the age of twenty-five; she is thought to have been a member of the Pazyryk tribe.
She was buried with six horses and two similarly-tattooed men (the horned griffon that decorates her shoulder also appears on the man buried closest to her, covering most of his right side), possibly escorts. She was also wearing a horse-hair wig, silk, and elaborate boots, which is all a level of ceremony that would have likely only been accorded to a woman of high rank. You didn’t get inked like this unless you were very important, and had worked your way up to that importance.
…Hence, of course, the references to her by researchers as ‘The Ukok Princess,’ although due to the lack of weapons in her grave they have concluded that the woman was in fact a healer or a storyteller.
And now I’m all consumed with curiosity: Who was she? What amazing things did she accomplish? Why these symbols, and what did they mean? Who were the two men alongside her?
The most informative article about it can be found here, although I would completely eat up any other information you guys could find.
When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. Thank you.
I think I had a good day on twitter today.
The middle one is a perfect point. I’ll just leave it here.
Because Johnny Storm is Sue Storm’s biological brother and Sue is played by Kate Mara. Johnny Depp is half Native American so he wasn’t miscast. Jamie Bell is also a miscast.
No one seemed to have an issue when Jessica Alba was playing Chris Evans’ biological sister. Jessica Alba is part Mexican, Chris Evans is not. Let’s not pretend this is the first time Marvel has taken creative liberty with their movie adaptations.
black & white biological siblings are perfectly possible in the real world. let alone in a universe where ppl can manage to attain pyrokinesis and invisibility.
