THERE’S NOTHING BETTER THAN ANIMAL BEST FRIENDS. APOLOGIES FOR THE CAPS LOCK, BUT I HAD NO CHOICE.
52 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war.
The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to ‘blast the warships out of the water’. Arkhipov refused to agree – unanimous consent of 3 officers was required and thanks to him, the world was saved from being scarred badly.
His story is finally being told the BBC is airing a documentary on it.
thinking for yourself.
might just save the god damn world.
The Disney Channel used to air these little shorts about geniuses and historical people. At the end Genie would say, “Great minds don’t think alike. They think for themselves.”
"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"
Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently
Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.
At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."
The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.
This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media.
We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.
Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.
You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.
Haha I don’t know if she meant it to be demeaning, but it certainty can be taken that way.
