In order that a woman might become very soft and smooth and without hairs from her head down… Take juice of the leaves of squirting cucumber and almond milk…gently mix in quicklime and orpiment. Then add pounded galbanum mixed with a small amount of wine for a day and night… add a powder of an equal amount each of mastic, frankincense, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove. When the woman has anointed herself all over with this depilatory, let her sit in a very hot steambath… when she has stayed there for a little while, try to pull out the hairs from the pubic area. If they do not fall out easily, let her have hot water poured over her, and let her wash herself all over, drawing her palm over her skin gently… Then take henna with whites of eggs and let her anoint all her limbs… Then let her rinse herself with water, and finally with a very white linen cloth wrapped around her, let her go to bed.

A 14-year old Yazidi girl carrying an assault rifle to protect her family from IS, formerly ISIS.
Kick ass young lady
Good luck. If they come for you, kill them all.
Strength to you, warrior.
I just want to put this here again, in the hopes that somehow this immortalizes her. Tomorrow, I’ll wake up and have coffee and feed our cats. I’ll have a beer in the afternoon while I wait for the FedEx guy. And I’ll complain on the internet.
But this girl’s future is so uncertain. You can see it on her face. I hope she sees the sun tomorrow. Run fast, shoot straight, keep fighting.
All Yazidi and Assyrian women need to be given assault rifles right fucking now.
Bah, he can shove his friendship. All he did was point me into the direction of the greybeards, after I saved his city for him and had to pay for my own house. He better have told me where the damn greybeards were. Friend my arse. It’s not like he listens to my side of things for the war, so how are we friends? He likes you until you start thinking for yourself. That’s not friendship. That’s what Delphine does if you decide you don’t want to kill Paarthurnax.
Plus, his pout is sexy. Mmm, the taste of your butthurt salty tears is so sweet, Bali baby.
"I noticed something telling about the characters of Tullius and Ulfric in the opening scene. When Alduin attacks, Tullius is concerned with the safety of the townspeople, completely ignoring Ulfric, despite how much of a political ‘prize’ he is. Ulfric, meanwhile… is hiding in a tower. Way to protect your people, Ulfric…"
The people under an Imperial banner who were just cheering for his death… Yes, lets risk the leader of the rebellion’s life and screw the second chance he has to continue and win the war to free his people. Lets just throw that second chance away to try and save the enemy and fight alongside the men that tried chopping off his head.
Man, some people. I feel like they play through the game blindfolded.
All that and Tullius shouting 8 seconds later: “Get out of here, you idiots, we’re leaving!”
