Are you fucking kidding me? Did we all just wake up in 1938?

Remember how everyone thought it was so ridiculous and uneducated of Tumblr users to think that those people were Nazis and now it looks like they might very well be nazis, amazing

Looks more like a revival of the progroms than the nazis

Just want to update the situation here, because I’m an adult and do web searches for up to date news on things.
It looks like this was either a hoax or an extortion scheme, and the majority of the Jewish population have nothing to fear with regards to this (well, except from the crappy situation that everyone has to fear in Eastern Ukraine).
For one, the original news story was published in what appears to be a small small news site akin to the National Inquirer, and was then bounced around American media because we justifiably react very negatively to this type of thing. The second flag is that these were signed by the Donetsk People’s Republic - the crazy separatists that barred themselves inside a government building and want to be part of Russia and have no power beyond that building and plaza they’re occupying. Third flag is that similar flyers were distributed to businessmen and international students demanding money.
The new theory is that this was a slapped-together attempt to make some quick cash for these separatist groups, but one that seems to have failed pretty hard.

Also this. When I got the e-mail saying I had a package I thought it was going to be the textbook that I ordered.
It wasn’t a textbook.
Holy potatoes Ninjka you’re too sweet. Ahhhhhh ;A;

I was really hoping that they would just deliver it to the door. Oh well.
Love ya lots, Lizz.

kaku koimu
mono to wa ware mo
omoiniki
kokoro no ura zo
masashikarikeru

-Anonymous, Kokinshū #700

From the very start,
I myself had felt quite sure
of loving this way.
The secret divination
has proven all too correct.

-Helen Craig McCullough, trans.

This poem from the Konkinshū collection of poems has no recorded topic of composition and no author. The phrase “kokoro no ura” is written in classical Japanese as 心の占, the first character meaning “heart” and the last one being an olden pronunciation of the word for “fortunetelling” or “divination.”

Today is Lizzy and my one year anniversary from when we officially became official! So, it’s the anniversary we celebrate. I was reading through the love scrolls of the Kokinshū and this poem stuck out to me.

I love you lots, Lizzy! Happy Anniversary!
