see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’.
How come I didn’t know this
Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.
(Read the next sentence with Reg E. Cathey’s voice) Hello everyone, I’m back. (Stop it.)
So, I got back to Tumblr a (well, kinda long) while ago. But all I did was reblogging… Until now.
As of now, (10.09.14, 06:10 a.m.) I’ll keep on creating gifsets (that you love) about things that I love. I’ll keep on reblogging of course, (since there are 13 reblogs in queue -which will last for 13 days because I’m one inconsistent fucker-) so this won’t be THAT much of a change for you. (And I’ll change my 2,5 years old avatar.)
So, just made my first gifset after a long time, I hope you’ll take a look…

"Personal note: When I was a little kid, my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So, once when I was six, I did. The doctors didn’t know if my eyes would ever heal. I was terrified, alone in that darkness. Slowly, daylight crept in through the bandages, and I could see. But something else had changed inside of me. That day I had my first headache."

Act 2 Scene 2
Lady Macbeth Retire we to our chamber; / A little water clears us of this deed: / How easy is it, then!
Lady Macbeth takes back the daggers, placing them next to Duncan’s sleeping chamberlains, and then returns to her husband to suggest they go back to their room and wash the blood from their hands. The bright red blood contrasts with the severe black costumes.
Kirlian photography is the term used to describe the techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges. It is named after Semyon Kirlian, a Russian electrical engineer, and his wife Valentina, who in 1939 discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a high-voltage source, an image is produced on the photographic plate. They developed Kirlian photography after observing a patient in Krasnodar hospital who was receiving medical treatment from a high-frequency electrical generator. When the electrodes were brought near the patient’s skin, they noticed a glow similar to that of a Neon Discharge Tube. Afterwards, the Kirlians conducted experiments in which photographic film was placed on top of a conducting plate, and another conductor was attached to the a hand, a leaf or other plant material. The conductors were energized by a high frequency high voltage power source, producing photographic images typically showing a silhouette of the object surrounded by an aura of light. Though the Kirlians reported the results of their experiments in 1958, their work remained virtually unknown until 1970, when two Americans, Lynn Schroeder and Sheila Ostrander published a book, Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain. While Kirlian photography has been the subject of mainstream scientific research, it has largely been co-opted by promoters of pseudoscience, parapsychology, and paranormal health claims. In many ways, the technique has effected greater mass influence because of these associations, and speaks to the ways “energy-culture” enters popular thought.
