Some graffiti found in Pompeii’s ruins: 
Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!
Restituta, take off your tunic, please, and show us your hairy privates.
I screwed the barmaid.
Apollinaris, the doctor of the emperor Titus, defecated well here.
I screwed a lot of girls here.
Sollemnes, you screw well!
Theophilus, don’t perform oral sex on girls against the city wall like a dog.
Nice to see nothing has changed.


There is a website with all of the graffiti

I love this.




I am laughing so hard


someone basically wrote “secundus is gay” on the wall humankind has not changed at all

Whilst the graffiti may not have changed in the last 2000 years, the social stigma revolving gay relationships has. Gay relationships were seen as a rite of passage for men in the ancient times. Males were free to engage in relationships with whomever they liked, as was their rite - boy, girl, prostitute, slaves, with pederasty, the love and penetration of prepubescent boys generally between the age of 13-20, being especially popular (though the penetration of certain boys, such as free born youths wasn’t and in such cases thrusting between the thighs of your partner was acceptable but that’s a whole other issue.) Over the centuries the view of homosexuality did begin to waver and it became less favourably viewed but it was no less popular. Everyone did it, including their gods (think Zeus and Ganymede.)
The only important aspect revolving an all male partnership was who was the dominant party. That is the to say, who was the giver and who was the receiver, the top and bottom. A pubescent boy, obviously, would have been the receiver in most, if not all of these relationships. The dominant party would have been seen to be the ‘man’ of the relationship, the controller, the power, the intelligent one who was the one who wore the trousers as it was. 
So whilst the literally meaning behind the graffiti remains the same (“Secundus is gay”) and yes, to some this may have been intended to cause scorn for the man in question, especially in Pompeii where i’m assuming the graffiti was created somewhere in the early AD years before the eruption in 79AD, to many what the grafitti is actually saying is “Secundus is the big man on campus and is the shit cos he gets to top.”

First Florida! And then… THE WORLD! -evil laughter set to intense organ music-

I’m actually No. 62 in the world, so that will take a bit longer.

Also keep in mind that the leaderboards reset like less than 24 hours ago so this may be the best I get lol

Holy. Crap. I just found an email argument between me and some random internet person about evolution and creationism. Apparently I thought this was important enough to print out and save for TWENTY YEARS!!!

Ah, 1997. When people still printed e-mails and saved physical copies because… apparently that made sense back then.

No. Now you must accept your destiny! Find the first and challenge them to a d-d-d-d-d-duel!

I could challenge them, but it won’t change the rankings because the rankings are by total points. I have just over 5,000 points and the No. 1 has like 18,000 and I’m just not dedicated enough to my cell phone to get that many haha

I thought it’d be interesting to try the “I Write Like…” site (http://iwl.me/) but to see how much style changes from year-to-year from piece-to-piece. All of these were fiction. The top is a piece called Cradlesong, the middle is the first chapter of Twisted, and the bottom is Red Bound. The first two are fantasy. The last two are first-person. Cradlesong started in high school and I haven’t touched it since 2009, Twisted started in 2011 and Red Bound was written in…2012? Yes.

In theory one could paste a bunch of excerpts and get a more accurate reading, but eh. This of course also isn’t any indication of how good the pieces are/I am. Though I am a little surprised and happy about the last one, though all three are cool.

PJ, please, with all due respect, I am rather displeased that you piqued my curiosity and would appreciate reparations of one sort or another.

Would you like an autograph?

I want…

…A COOKIE.

I just.

Did you just.

I.

Anonymous said: why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
