@awkwardoscar - I saw this and thought of you.

Maybe tagging only works in original posts, and not in reposts? Sorry, still kind of newb at this, I suppose.

Dark Ages, Schmark Ages. The De-Textbook cuts through that and so much more fake-fact bullshit.

cloudy with a chance of witch burning

your periodic reminder that a good chunk of Europe basically shat the bed for a few centuries while everyone else kinda did their thing.

I am sorry I’m going to be that person.

This map is extremely inaccurate.

1) China was not going through business as usual China was going through the TANG DYNASTY i.e. the Golden Age of Chinese culture, which would lay down legal and social and poetic norms for the rest of Chinese history. The Tang is so influential that a lot of languages call Chinese people 唐人 (People from Tang.) (We call Chinese people “people from Qin” so.)

2) Japan is _first becoming literate_ during this time period (due to the influence of the Tang they adopt Chinese script), which is a BFD for poetry, religion, politics, society. Japanese court culture develops, which near the end of this period (11th century, around the time Europe enters “high middle ages”) will produce The Tale of Genji (by a totally awesome woman named Murasaki),widely regarded as the world’s first novel because of it’s deft use of irony and social commentary.

3) The southern part of Korea is experiencing the emergence of Unified Silla, a state that will last the entire period and will see the importation of Chinese and Indian buddhism, the construction of the first Confucian college in Korea, and so on.

4) In Mesoamerica, the Mayans are inventing astronomy, writing (the third and final independent invention of writing in human history), and a whole crapload of other stuff. This is the triumph of their culture.

5) The Umayyads in Spain are a massive center of technology, learning, and (comparative) religious toleration.

6) The Eastern Roman Empire, which spans both the green and yellow portions of your map, isn’t doing too badly either, bouncing back after losing territory to the Caliphate.

7) The Polynesians are colonizing the ENTIRE PACIFIC using amazing advanced navigation technology not rivaled until the INVENTION OF GPS.

8) I am not equipped to talk about Sub-Saharan Africa in detail (cue rant about how we never learn about subsaharan africa in the western educational system) but you can bet there are some major, amazing developments going on there too. I’d be shocked if there weren’t.

9) HOLY SHIT INDIA.

10) OMG SOUTH EAST ASIA. SOUTH. EAST. ASIA.

11) THEY WEREN’T BURNING WITCHES IN EUROPE DURING THE MIGRATION PERIOD (dark ages). Witch burning took off in the EARLY MODERN PERIOD, nearly 1000 years after this. Europe was going through some tough shit, which would leave them backwards compared to the rest of the world for 1000 years, but also there were some amazing things happening there, at least have the decency to be like “angry dudes with swords stabbing people” not WITCH BURNINGS FFS.

12) And ABSOLUTELY Islamic Caliphate was a totally amazing flowering of intellectual, artistic, and spiritual culture, a mixing pot between a thousand cultures and languages, and totally amazing. Don’t in any way want to diminish that in any way.

PLEASE ALWAYS BE THAT PERSON

Basically people call it the dark ages because some guy who had a massive hardon for the Roman Empire was sad that there was no Roman empire.

^Pretty much.

^^ All of this.

My advisor told me today there is a church in Honolulu based on Kôchi Castle (on Shikoku, former castle seat of Tosa domain). Hey, I know that church! Never knew it was based on a specific castle.

Do you remember your first concert? I don’t.

I remember the date: May 21st, 2011. I remember the band: My Chemical Romance. I remember getting up at five in the morning to make the three hour drive down New Jersey, followed by a nine hour wait in a line outside the venue. I can still recall…

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

every normal girl i know hates herself and every normal guy i know loves himself

Maybe. But the guys who love themselves, stereotypically, are just arrogant and full of it, while those girls who love themselves -…

Ah. I had not realized what I had done to offend; now I see, and I am deeply sorry. It was never my intention to make this “about me,” any more than I imagined the original post was about whoever posted or reposted it. It was a comment that was off-target, off-topic, to be sure, potentially even derailing, and for that alone I should have known it was not right to take it in that direction. But, truly, I would never want to damage or threaten our friendship.

As for my previous response, I swear, I promise, it was not meant to be snarky, humorous, or passive-aggressive. Really, all I meant to say was, “we all mess up.” We can’t each of us always be on top of our game, only saying the most perfectly appropriate things at the perfectly appropriate times. All I was looking for was to have the whole thing overlooked and forgotten about and not taken so seriously - but, that was also because I had not realized how seriously, and for precisely what reason, I had offended. And so, I apologize again.

And, from now on, I shall endeavor to do a better job of keeping my nose out of conversations where I don’t belong.
