Religion is so strange sometimes.
the only thing that comforts me 99% of the time is having the full belief in all paths to Enlightenment, so long as they are non-harmful to all that we share this world with.

HOW WAS I UNAWARE OF THE EXISTENCE OF THIS PHOTOGRAPH???
Instead of saying “MAN UP”, you should say “TANK UP”.
Because you know, when you’re the tank in a group, you’re taking the hits. Which is kind of what the first expression is aiming for.

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.

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