@ every person who mentions dogs under my posts about dalmatians, i am coming to your house, taking you to the nearest body of water and drowning you
i just had my first folklore singing rehearsal, feels so good feels so right !!
i just think ‘hrvatska’ looks much sexier in cyrillic. starting with an x. it’s all about the image, yknow?
krleža was just such a hater huh?
just got reminded of the funniest tweet ever, some guy genuinely suggesting that the united states military perform a land invasion of russia through siberia in the winter
No this is actually a really good idea the US should commit 50k troops to this ASAP
This cute platypus
I fully understand why westerners thought the platypus was a hoax at first. I’m looking at a real live one moving around and it STILL looks fake.
The one thing that could have made them sound any more made up would have been if you said the boys have secret viper fangs that can absolutely fuck you up with venom, and they do, on their goddamn feet.
cursed platypus facts:
* five (5) X chromosomes
* only the left ovary works
* produces milk but has no nipples. the mother just kind of sweats milk out their chest. nature is beautiful
* was nearly called the “duckmole”
* swims with its weird fish eyes and ears closed, hunting entirely by electroreception
* born with teeth, but then they fall out
Girl help american authors are writing about Baba Yaga and citing fictional novels by other american authors as their source 😐

Painting of the Maharaja of Indore by Bernard Boutet De Monvel (1929)
His name was Yashwant Rao Holkar II! He was the Maharaja of Indore from 1926 to 1948 and commissioned Bernard Boutet De Monvel to paint both him and his wife Sanyogita Bai Holkar, the Maharani of Indore.
There was also a second set of paintings where both wear traditional clothes also painted by Monvel in 1934!
what i love about tumblr is how everyone i follow is extremely knowledgeable about (and often obsessed with) something really specific. it’s their niche. languages & translation, gothic and romantic literature, movies with gay subtext between old men, blorbo from their shows, castration, folk music, 16th century florentine cuisine, you name it…
