How many potatoes does it take to kill an Irish man?
just like the population of Ireland during the Great Famine
history nerds are the best.
we would have survived the fuckin potato famine if it werent for the bloody english stealing out spuds
fuck this shit
it is entirely inconsistent with elizabeth’s character for her to drop everything (PIRATE KING thank you very much) to raise a child as a landlubber
give me elizabeth, eight months pregnant, still running the show from shipwreck cove
give me elizabeth and her six-year-old
soncabin boy kicking ass and taking names as they outrun the royal navy
give me elizabeth, instead of waiting for will, sailing out to meet him
give me elizabeth dying at sea four years and one week later and signing aboard the flying dutchman to the shock of its captain
give me elizabeth and will co-captaining the dutchman and sailing the seas beyond the edge of the world for eternity together
give me young billy (i’m forced to assume they, as pirates, are unimaginative when it comes to names) telling the story of william turner, who gave up everything for the woman he loved, and elizabeth swann, who took it back with sword and pistol
something always bothered me about that ending and now I know what it was god bless
I bet Cecil and Carlos are that friendly couple that exists in many neighbourhoods, you know, the ones who you would knock on the door to ask to borrow some tools, or ones who always get a christmas card from every house or the ones which even in years to come people tap their faces and go, “Oh! The Palmer-Scientists! What lovely gentlemen.”
Headcanon that you can’t even mention the world ‘Conspiracies’ in Night Vale without Steve Carlsberg bursting into the room with arms full of papers and documents prepared to help. Like, you’ve got Carlos and Cecil conversing over dinner at Big Rico’s and all of a sudden Cecil goes pale because Carlos mentions ‘The C Word' and he can hear running foot steps. And like Steve just bursts through the door and papers fly everywhere demanding to know where the conspiracies were.

there’s something really interesting in this passage that I wanted to point out
Trelawney assumes that Harry was born in midwinter because of his “dark hair” and “mean stature” and “tragic losses so young in life”
Tom Riddle was born in midwinter, is describe in CoS as resembling Harry, and his mother died right after his birth
Harry has a piece of Voldemort’s soul in him
that’s why Trelawney made that assumption
I pointed this out in my Harry Potter class today and everyone started yelling and about five people told me to go to hell
Hold up, A HARRY POTTER CLASS?!
