Reading Discworld means constant exposure to incredibly beautiful and heartwarming moments of humanity at its best (even when its dwarfs, trolls, golems and other people), soul-breakingly grief-making depictions of the absolute banality of evil, tearjerking sights of tragedy and loss, and more
and also puns, incredibly glorious bad puns that entire plots and books have been written solely for the purpose of
and constant bouncing between all these things without warning so you will cry and laugh at the same time, you have been warned
totally worth it

Just 30 minutes south of Brussels, in Belgium, is a forest called Hallerbos. During the spring, the forest’s floor is covered in bluebell flowers which creates a carpet-like effect. Recently, photographer Kilian Schönberger went deep into the woods to capture this incredible shot.

I love how potato in French is pomme de terre, which pretty much means “earth apple.”
like what stupid frenchman saw this:
and said “zis petite légume looks like a, how you say, APPLE! hmmm… but it grows in ze earth… HON HON HON! MAIS OUI! C’EST UNE POMME DE TERRE!”
j’adore comment ananas se dit pineapple en anglais, ce qui veut littéralement dire “pomme de pin”, genre quel type anglais a vu ça:
et s’est dit : “ow cette étrange big fruit ressemble à une, how do you say, POMME! hmmm… mais plutôt une pomme qui pousse dans les pins… HU HU HU! OH YES, IT’S A PINEAPPLE!”
(z’avez vu, on peut le faire aussi… hon hon hon!)
miscommunication as a plot device makes me angry
if you just talked to each other but no
anxiety in one picture
Short, simple, sweet. NAILED IT.
I like this a lot better than the French one, tbh. Much more to the point.
Especially loving the inclusion of the ‘people refusing to let you leave places unescorted because you might get raped’ one. I’ve been on the receiving end of that more often than I can count.
in a healthy, close relationship of any kind, when something upsets you, you need to bring it up. as soon as possible, even. cultivate an environment in which you both can talk about things that upset you, with the utmost attention to everyone’s feelings. it’s a really simple thing to do but it’s a thing i’ve been working on for a while and i’m getting actual nice things happening as a result
me and my gf do this :)
I was brought up to believe that this is essential in any relationship, and although it hasn’t made me immune to problems of any kind, it’s certainly given me advantages which I am thankful for every day.
