Nothing like laundromat knitting! Pattern is Back to Schol[ar] by Lili comme tout on Ravelry.
In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain. So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.
Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation. Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen, began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the approaching army.
When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.
The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a stick.
That’s one hell of a portrait.
hitting shit with a stick
This is maybe the best portrait of anyone that I’ve ever seen, ever.
If that portrait doesn’t scream “A hundred motherfuckers can’t tell me nothing” then I don’t know what does.
"Come at me, bro."
IT’S BACK ON MY DASH
“youre always on your computer” well ur always on my nerves

Whenever my friends play cards like this, I feel compelled to cover their exposed parts with pennies. It makes taking them out a lot easier on my conscience if I don’t have to think about how disadvantaged they are with that so-called “armor” they’re forced to wear.
Not sure if her boobplate is just white and shaded in such ambiguous way or has the worst case f underboob ever… For the sake of my sanity, gonna assume it’a just bad coloring.
For such an infinitely amazing and badass card/lady Akroma’s armour really is disappointing!
The actual card art gives her an EscherGirls style, ridiculously uncomfortable pose too.
What if everything was just a bad dream and you wake up to a perfect life

The struggle is real.
what if online friends were called url friends
I think the snapchats of my math teacher are the only thing I’ll be remembered for and I’m okay with that

Notice only 20 shades of gray
It’s been proven that women actually have an acute ability to pick up subtle differences in colors
In response to that last comment^^
Yes. It comes from the Hunter-Gatherer days.
Women were the gatherers. They had to be able to discern between the different shades of colors to know which plants were poisonous and which were not.
Men were out hunting, so they didn’t have to worry about that.
Which is why women see “Blood orange” and “crimson” and “scarlet” etc while guys just see “red”.
Well, that explains…
