Client: Hello, I asked one of my friends and he said that you built our site using Hotmail.
Me: Excuse me! What do you mean?
Client: You used Hotmail to build my site.
Me: We can’t do that, nobody can. Hotmail is owned by Microsoft and they offer free email accounts. It’s not a development environment.
Client: My friend is a computer expert and he is sure.
Me: Is your friend next to you?
Me: Can you put him through?
Friend: You made my friend’s site with Hotmail. Admit it.
Me: Sir, we can’t do that. What made you think it was created using Hotmail.
Friend: All the pages in the site end with .html.
i’m 100000% sure this isn’t a coincidence ok
See how we are excited for something like this? Marvel, pay attention. You’re missing out on a great opportunity for making a ton of money because you know who would like more fucking merch? Every girl that loves comics. Makeup and clothes and jewelry, cute bags, cups that don’t look like they’re made for little kids. We’d eat that shit up.
Want to give me sweats with Cap’s shield on them or the bullseye logo from Hawkeye? You wanna stick the SHIELD logo on everything? Fuck yeah! More tank tops with classic Mavel characters? So down with that. Ohhh big comfy sweaters/sweatshirts? Hawkeye merch that isn’t the douchebro hoodie
that I totally still want because the sleeves zip off and I’m fucking dying.How about those character hoodies, but cut for ladies? And some shirts/shit which characters like Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Kate Bishop, etc.?
If you made a makeup line based on Marvel comics/movies do you know how fast that shit would sell? Should I wear Iron Man or Black Widow red today on my lips? Oh hey, I should totes put on some Cap nail art.
I’d kill for a Fraction Hawkeye travel mug or one of those plastic tumblers with straws that had the SHIELD logo. Any sort of Marvel accessory, really. How about those lanyards people wear to cons? If someone made one with bullseyes and arrows and Hawkguy phrases on it I’d be over it so fast your head would spin.
Also someone please make a funk Marvel POP Hawkeye figurine. Pretty please.
The Middle Passage journey from West Africa to the Americas took 4 to 6 months.
Try walking around without wiping your butt for a day or a week. Yep now try laying down in shit for 4-6 weeks, most of it isnt your own. Then add some blood and some mucus. Then grab some chains. Slavery was that bad. dont u ever fucking tell me it wasnt! (via howtobenoladarling)
Not to mention every now and then you were raped by those that were working the ships. Male and female were raped.
24 hrs laying in extremely tight positions with hundreds of people that are suffering from all kinds of diseases due to malnutrition. Weather wasnt always the way the ship owners planned and voyages took longer than usually, the longest I was told by a professor was a whole year.
Most people have no idea what happened to our ancestors, and that’s due to the fact that the powers that be want to act like it never happened.
Reblogging some real shit from my Liked posts. Because fuck you.
And let’s add on the fact that ships have to make port and re-supply and between Africa and America lay the Caribbean and South America, which still took a great deal more to travel to. So families were separated not only by death and torment, but by members being sold off on a different continent than where they might have been bound.
Not to mention ships get blown off course, and the slave next to you might have died and you have to sleep next to a corpse for who knows how long before the crew finally decides to handle it and toss it overboard like so much offal.
Sharks still follow the course of the slave trade ships till this day due to the amount of offal and human bodies that were tossed overboard in the ship’s wake.
(Damn is that last thing about sharks true?!)
Yes. They threw so many bodies overboard it changed the ecological feeding patterns of sharks. They follow the slave ships from dock to port. They were even used as an act of terrorism to force Africans on to ships and encourage them not to commit suicide. Slave ships were often packed for collateral damage. It was estimated that many would not make the journey and all those bodies thrown overboard were insured. That’s how insurance companies got their start… It’s also how many families built their family fortune.
This was a business.
