EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.



The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

***INSANELY PAINFUL SHRIEKING***

So many problems with this picture though
why is james’ hair all combed and shit when it should be messy
his glasses are circular why aren’t they rectangles he wears rectangular glasses
his hair is not black but i can forgive that
why is his sleeve all buttoned up and shit JAMES POTTER HEAD MARAUDER WOULD NOT BUTTON HIS SHIRT HE’S A MESSY MOTHERFUCKER
LILY BAMF EVANS WOULD NOT WEAR HER HAIR IN PIGTAILS.
and if she did she wouldn’t use little pink bows
this picture makes me irrationally angry it really shouldn’t 

Maybe it was picture day at Hogwarts 

New Headcanon: it WAS picture day at Hogwarts. Sirius was planning on getting on Professor McGonagall’s nerves by streaking through the photograph. Unfortunately Remus was morally objected to this and Peter attempted to weasel out by using the excuse that magical cameras already added on an extra ten pounds which he certainly didn’t need. So it was up to James and Sirius. That morning, whilst eating breakfast in the Great Hall, the four saw that Lily had her hair pulled back into pigtails and even had ridiculous pink bows. She flushed and curtly informed them that her parents wanted a copy of the photograph. Suddenly hammered with the notion of wanting to prove his maturity, James decided to go all out by putting on his correct uniform and even combed his hair. Unfortunately he did not inform Sirius of his change of heart; subsequently Sirius ended up streaking by himself. After the photographs were said and done, the four retreated to their OWL exams but not before Sirius harshly reprimanded James for not following through with the prank. Afterwords James vowed to show Sirius that he was just as willing to pull a prank, even in front of the girls. And then just as Sirius says that he is bored, who should arrive but Severus?

Twilight may be trash but at least they cast actual native americans to play natives

That is a serious burn for a LOT of movies.  I’m not sure we have enough burn cream for this.

"you make mistakes because you’re focusing on the target and not on your actions"

and i was like woah
