Iconic image of Princess Diana on a yacht in Portofino, Italy, in August 1997.

You know what really gets to me, and I’m sure many know this, is the blatant abuse and betrayal that white photogs display in POC countries. Every time a photo has gotten famous like this photo did in history, the actual focus of the photo is left behind in the dust while the white photog is hailed as a hero for displaying the ills of that country. He didn’t even fucking ask her name. He didn’t ask for 17 years. The world knew nothing about her life and her story. He captured one moment that made him famous and she got nothing.
Every time I see this photo, I seethe.





What religion other than Islam, could bring this many people together in unity ? 

Ahh the love I have for this picture

Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.

Erythema Multiforme
This is a skin condition characterised by target lesions, like multiple smaller versions of the erythema migrans rash observed in Lyme disease. In mild cases the target appearance may be indistinct, in which case the condition has a similar appearance to urticaria (hives).
In most cases it is caused by a virus (e.g. herpes simplex), bacteria (e.g. mycobacterium) or allergy.
Treatment can be specific to the pathological cause, for example antivirals to treat herpes simplex, or more general: painkillers, antihistamines and steroids to reduce inflammation, antibiotics to prevent secondary infection.

Why is everyone so obsessed with the idea of love?

If you’re dying to be hurt so badly, I’ve got a baseball bat for that.
