Greetings from tech limbo!
I know I haven’t been around for a whole week without notice, but that is because my laptop is basically in intensive care. My display is malfunctioning and the guy who’s looking at it still doesn’t know how to fix it. I just got my hands on a friend’s laptop to write this.
if you’re wondering why I couldn’t go on tumblr from my phone, it’s because my phone has a too-old version of Android on it and thus can’t handle most apps.
I’ll spare you the horrible details of the boredom I’m experiencing, and tell you that I don’t know when I’ll be back, but hopefully soon.

Before and After Visual Effects: Chris Evans as pre-serum Steve Rogers
They even made his lips paler to show that he’s anemic. Nice touch.
Queen Hatshepsut of Ancient Egypt. She has a lovely smile for someone who’s been dead for thousands of years.
she wasn’t a queen. she was a pharaoh and wanted to be referred to as such. she even had her statues modeled after the male pharaoh’s statues to state her dominance and authority. she was actually one of the most successful pharaohs in all of ancient egyptian history and she reigned longer than any other woman in power in egypt.
damn no wonder she died and smiled for a trillion years afterwards
The fact that we know about her is marvelous.
the next Pharaoh after her Tuthmosis III tried to erase Hatshepsut out of history ,chiseled her name off her monuments ,covered the text on her obelisks with stone,knocked down and defaced her statues .
she was even left off the list of pharaohs ..talk about some patriarchy bullshit
her name was lost for a couple of millennia, her body was found in a unmarked grave in early twentieth century
sad part is in Egyptian belief is if your are forgotten in the living world you don’t exist in the afterlife,so he was trying to kill her even in death
My best friend throwing down some herstory. A+ commentary
She wore a fake beard, you guys.
She was the fucking boss.
If we remember her now does that save her from an awful afterlife?
I’m just picturing the Kemetic afterlife. All the Pharaohs are hanging out in some kind of swanky club, drinking and congratulating each other on being bros.
The doors slam open and Hatshepsut strides in, glorious, robes swirling, rocking the fake beard and the insane amounts of wealth and power. “Miss me, bitches?”
this post was amazing from start to finish
