Blanca Canales was an educator and a Puerto Rican Nationalist leader who may have been the first woman to lead a revolt against the United States.
"We knew that we would not be victorious but we had to hit our oppressor hard to show our determination to struggle for the independence of Puerto Rico, to the other countries of the world….We sent these troops to attack the [police] headquarters at noon and there and then the shootout began. We ran out of bullets and then seized the headquarters with molotov cocktails…I raised the flag of Puerto Rico and screamed “Viva Puerto Rico Libre” to establish the fact that we had proclaimed the Republic…I was in jail for 16 years and 10 months, almost 17 years. The empire does not give recognition to the political prisoner. I was treated like a common prisoner. During the first eight months I was incommunicado….Time and time again they tried to destroy my revolutionary spirit and to do away with the love I had for my country and the right to fight for her…The role of the woman is as important as of the man [in the revolution]. The revolutionary woman must act accordingly with the demands of the revolution, be it to arm herself, educate her people, or whatever is necessary.”—Puerto Rican resistance leader Blanca Canales, a political prisoner after the Jayuya Uprising of 1950, interviewed in 1970

10 years ago today, filming began on a brand new series of Doctor Who, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler!

can I passively aggressively point out the way the shot is set up to make both of them equal including cancelling out the height difference and you really couldn’t tell who was meant to be the main character by looking at this photo? (Because of course they’re both the main character and of equal importance rose tyler Ninth doctor (via pygmy-of-triviality)

"Damn it, girls, what’s the rule about weapons at the table?!"
"Only when we have guests over…"

Single dad Thanos begins to regret raising assassin children.
IDEK if Gamora is older than Nebula, but whatev. This is already so painfully improbable.
