Happy birthday to my bestest pal grosscatface, here is a squishy party kitten for you because I am too far away to make you a squishy party cake.
Walmart brand Ice Cream Sandwiches don’t melt
Walmart food is literally the scariest shit like once I got a carton of eggs AND THEY WERE FERTILIZED. FUCKING DEAD BABY CHICKEN IN YOUR STUPID FUCKING EGGS LIKE REALLY WHAT THE FUCK WALMART?!!!?? WHAT THE FUCK.
Walmart is basically the worst. Please don’t shop there. If you can’t afford to shop anywhere else, at least please don’t buy food there.
These are photos of children crying for some great reasons, and these are my favorites lol.
whenever I tell people I don’t want kids, they get all indignant like “oh you say that now.” Then I just send them this photoset.
Thankfully some brave citizen corrected this terrible German language error
this is by far the most sketch-ass “zum mitnehmen” box collection that I have ever seen.
Yep, that’s a chunk of a grave marker

Why the fuck is there a part of a grave marker even
SPEAKING OF WHICH
WE WERE ON THE WAY TO MY GRANNY’S TODAY AND WE SAW A MILK VAN AND JUST
The Crowds Gather: The Reaction to War
The photographs above depict the crowds which gathered in the major cities of Europe as war was declared across the continent. With the ink on declarations of war still drying jubilant crowds took to the streets fired by patriotic fervour to celebrate the beginning of what they believed would be a short, sharp war.
On 1st August 1914, German army officers took to the streets to read out the Kaiser’s mobilisation order, crowds quickly gathered to listen - many of them no doubt members of Germany’s Reserve, Landwehr and Landsturm. With the declaration of war crowds began to gather across Berlin, one focal point was at the residence of the German heir to the throne Crown Prince Wilhelm and his wife Duchess Cecilie in Unter den Linden. In the photograph above the crowds can be seen cheering the couple as they wave from a balcony. Another photograph from Unter den Linden shows jubilant crowds carrying portraits of the Kaiser and Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph. The fourth photograph shows Kaiser Wilhelm himself addressing crowds from a balcony of the Berliner Schloss. He did this several times during the first days of the war telling the citizens gathered below that:
"A fateful hour has fallen for Germany. Envious peoples everywhere are compelling us to our just defence. The sword has been forced into our hands."
The most famous photograph to be taken of crowds gathered in the Austro-Hungarian Empire was taken in Munich and shows a buoyant crowd at the Odeon Platz - the photograph which was later used in Nazi propaganda during the Second World War purportedly features a young Adolf Hitler among the crowd.
Similarly, large crowds of thousands of people also took to the streets of the capitals and cities of the allied nations. In Britain the attitude towards possible involvement had initially been mixed with many preferring the country to remain neutral. When news of the invasion of Belgium reached the British people the enthusiasm for war grew. While there was significant anti-war demonstrations held in the days preceding the declaration of war they were vastly outnumbered by the crowds who took to the streets to celebrate. In the next photograph crowds of boater hat waving men congregated in Trafalgar Square.
In the seventh photograph we see a thick crowd gathered outside Buckingham Palace cheering King George, Queen Mary and the Prince of Wales who, like the Kaiser in Berlin, greeted the crowds from a balcony following the Declaration of War on 4th August.
In St Petersburg many people gathered expectantly outside the Winter Palace in the days leading up to the declaration of war, the photograph above shows the crowd gathered on 28th July when the Tsar ordered a partial mobilisation against Austria-Hungary. In France Parisians gathered with tricolours flying to wave off reservists leaving for their muster depots from the Gare de Paris-Est train station.
Interestingly what is a clear common thread between all of photographs from across europe is the constant presence of the boater hat. At the time it was the fashion across Europe for boaters to replace the ubiquitous bowler hat in the summer months.
