1. Episode 8, Season 1 of Supernatural always slays me. Not only does it pull on the age-old “Native American cursed land” scary story, but you’ve also got the random flute music when they show up on a reservation. And don’t forget the anthropology professor who is not the least disturbed that two of his students found human bones in a field and just plucked them up and brought them to him.

Half-Mourning Dress
1910-1912
The Victoria & Albert Museum

What’s a “half-mourning” dress?  Mourning in the front, party in the back?

Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning. 
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.

That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:


I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.

    So this girl walks up to another girl and says “Hey, have you heard of the Bechdel Test?”

    And the other girl says, “Yeah, my boyfriend was telling me about it the other day!”

  9. Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.
