It is this one. Occasionally, the original text/pic gets deleted and replaced with a gif of your OTP or that actor in that one show or a quote from that thing you like. But it’s not them. It never was them. It has always been, and always will be, a lie.
And now it’s a picture of V.I. Lenin

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.
Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.
Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject.
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
I LOVE IT
the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again
the fact that over 300,000 other people know exactly what this feels like too is a source of great comfort
especially if it’s a kiss
A Man Found a “dragon” on his backyard
The Chinese weibo and weixin are circulating the images of the “dragon”, it is yet unknown if the dragon is real, or if it’s not whatever animal this is
The man that found it, says that he heard weird bird noises in his yard when it was raining, he thought a bird might be hurt, but the man was surprised, when he saw ” a dragon” when he arrived at the scene
It is not known whether the animal is a real dragon or a strangely mutated animal, but the fact remains that the animal was hurt, it is still alive, and a man that posted his pictures on his social media is asking people if they think it is indeed a dragon, and even if its not how to treat him, we all hope that that “animal” will recover soon.

dragons can literally never blow out candles that is so sad
do you ever just want to go outside in the middle of the night and walk around and not actually do anything just observe and think and stuff
