Re-identification of Viking corpses has revealed that half of their warriors were female.
"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

"Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again." - Zelda Williams
remember when the internet immortalized the picture of the couple kissing in the vancouver riots?

Ariel, Yes just like The Little Mermaid. I am a 23 (Someone please remind me to change this 4-6-15) year old community college student. I plan *life cackles maniacally in the background* to attend HOLLINS UNIVERSITY in the Fall. I am a crazy cat lady, although I only have two so far. There is Shibbah, my peach, longhaired, baby boy & Shug, my black, shorthaired female-familiar. I reblog things that I find amusing or personally relevant to some extent. I hope you find my sense of humor as delightful as I do :)
