One of my favorite things about Hermione is how ruthlessly practical she is.  She’s scary because not only is she book smart; she can take in disparate pieces of information and triage the ever loving shit out of that.  Piece X and piece F go together so resolution M.  And her mind is quick enough that she makes those choices in seconds.  Well-informed choices that also combine instinct.   For as much as she’s a bookworm who overthinks things, it’s because she has too much time on her hands to overthink things.  Basically, Hermione is built for war.  She’s built for conflict and strategy.

Does she always make the “right” or the “good” choices?  No.  No, she doesn’t.  She pulls some truly horrific shit, but out of all of the kids, she’s got the ability to see the breadth that the others don’t.  That they shouldn’t.  And for all that she does have the ability to see the true size of the fuckery that is going on, she’s also still a child.  So she fucks up and learns.  And for as horrific as what she did to her parents is - because oh my god - this war is not one they could even comprehend let alone participate in.  And I do think it’s a discredit to Hermione to think that she doesn’t get how awful the thing she did is.  She knows and she did it anyway because above all else, she wanted them alive to a.) hate her or b.) never knew she existed.

Hermione is a General by the end of this.  And the most amazing and horrific thing about that is that she’ll have to deal with the consequences of the choices she made.  She was smart enough to know that, going in.  So the fact that she walked into this, eyes open, with a truly strong grasp of what actually was going to happen, rather than rose glasses, makes her all the more amazing to me.

(ETA: Even though I don’t condone physical violence, one of my favorite moments is Hermione hitting Harry over the head with the parchment.  Because he’s all “I should totally hit it with that fangirl cuz!” and she’s all a.) stop thinking you’re that special, I’ve met you and b.) you don’t treat women like that, even though they think they want you to.  Be the better person, Potter.  She achieves this with a whack to the head and a glare.  LOVE YOU HERMIONE.)

microaggressions:

When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question. Because it’s assumed that I have at least one and no more than one mother in my life AND that she married AND that she gave up her own name AND that that part of her identity was erased enough from my public history so as to be a password to access my private information.

Holy crap, I never realized.

when “”“”educated”“”” people type a whole lot of words that mean basically nothing and u feel stupid for not understanding them at first and then u reread it and realise NO they are literally saying nothing they are just typing meaningless sentences to revel in their own smugness.

What if verbal abuse left the same scars as physical abuse? Would it be taken more seriously? That’s what photographer Richard Johnson hopes to accomplish with his new photo project, “Weapons of Choice.”

The series uses a makeup artist to put bruises and scars on photo subjects. Embedded in these violent marks are some hateful words typically associated with abuse, such as “Stupid,” “Dumb,” “Trash” and others that are much, much worse.

i really like this ultrafact because the setup implies something funny or unexpected is going to happen, but not only is the ‘punchline’ actually just standard torturous murder but the lack of punctuation adds a bizarre, text-post quality to the tone. syntactically speaking this ultrafact is a piece of accidental genius

The Mongol Empire was the safest place in the world as long as you didn’t backstab the Mongols.

To add to this, he actually sent two. The first was to sorta present a message of peace telling the leader in essence “We’re both great leaders of great empires and equals in stature.” and after the fucker killed the first caravan he sent another to figure out what the hell happened because maybe the fucker didn’t know who he was.
Then he invaded and utterly erased the empire off the face of the earth 

Did you guys know that Genghis Khan even went so far as to divert a river through the Khwarezmid emperor’s birthplace, erasing it from the map? This was how mad the emperor made Genghis feel. (Source)

He also invented the postal service and started military pensions. That’s why people were willing to fight for him, if they died, he’d take care of their families. This was unheard of at the time. 

Like they said: the Mongol empire was probably the best place to live as long as you didn’t backstab the Mogol’s

A son went into a rarely-used bedroom in his mother’s home and discovered thousands of wasps had made a giant nest in a bed. An estimated 5,000 wasps had created a nest by chewing through bedding, including a blanket and pillow. Pest-control expert John Birkett was called to tackle with the mound of wasps inside the mattress at the five-bedroom home in Winchester, Hampshire.
