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.


No no no no no no. That chart is bullshit and there was more than one library in the ancient world. Please don’t reblog this shit.

"Scientific advance" is not a quantity like litres or joules that you can measure, so having it in a graph makes for dubious science at best. During the Christian Dark Ages the Islamic World carried on many of the Roman and Greek work. So the chart there should be higher. And the modern science bit shouldn’t just jump up like that. It should be a sharp increase, but the moment Queen Victoria sat on the throne, railways, telephones, telegraphs and the like didn’t just suddenly spawn; it was a process that took time. All of these “What if” scenarios are harmless to think about, but shouldn’t be passed around as fact.For example, it’s often said that if Rome didn’t fall they would have had an Industrial Revolution, not Britain. But the Roman way of life was so different; they had slaves to do everything. In Britain, all work was paid, so there was motivation to make mining, spinning etc all mechanised to cut costs. In Rome there was no such motivation; slaves are free. Just another example of why guessing games aren’t solid history.

We’re so bad at sex and then we wonder why women aren’t like, really aggressive about sex. We think it’s cause they don’t have as much desire as we do. That’s how stupid men are, that we think ‘they’re just weird, women are like fucked up in the head cause they don’t wanna just fuck all the time. If I was a women, I’d just fuck everybody. Why don’t they wanna fuck all the time? I do.’ Of course you do, cause when you fuck, you get to fuck a woman! When she fucks, she has to fuck a guy! Wildly different experiences. For a man, 100% of the time, it’s the greatest thing that ever happened in his entire life. For a woman, about 40% of the time, when she’s being fucked by a guy, she’s thinking ‘I’ll get over this in a week. It’s not the worst thing. I’m not gonna cry this time.’


“Another thing that proves how bad men are at sex is that after sex, you’re looking at two very different people. The man just wants to lay there, be cool and the woman wants to cuddle … ‘Why is she so NEEDY?’ She’s not needy you idiot, she’s horny, because you did nothing for her. YOU DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. HER PUSSY IS ON FIRE BECAUSE IT’S GONE UNFUCKED COMPLETELY. Of course you’re fine, you climbed on and went ‘KFHGSKG’ and rolled off. And she’s on you because she’s like ‘WH-at SOMETHING ELSE HAS TO HAPPEN, THIS IS BULLSHIT!!’ If you fuck a woman well, she will LEAVE YOU ALONE. ‘Thanks a lot buddy, zzzzz.’
