Look, wherever you live in the world, Britain has probably tried to invade you at some point. That is a historic fact because new research claims that Britain—in our long, colorful, magnificent, slightly-shameful and occasionally cross-dressing history—we have invaded all but TWENTY TWO countries in the world. This new study found out that, at various times, Britain has invaded almost 90% of the countries around the planet. […] It’s not that we failed to invade those other twenty-two, it’s just that we basically forgot.
— John Oliver in The Bugle, about “All the Countries We’ve Ever Invaded and the Few We Never Got Round To”
For the curious, the 22 Britain never got round to are: Andorra, Belarus, Bolivia, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, the Republic of Congo, Guatemala, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Mali, Marshall Islands, Monaco, Mongolia, Paraguay, Sao Tome and Principe, Sweden, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Vatican City. (See map, from the Telegraph, above.)
Generally, these are either land-locked nations/nations with few ports or small nations (that might have gone over-looked). But I’m disappointed about Sweden. It’s right fucking there.
France, meanwhile, holds the record of being invaded by the British the most, which Oliver suggests is because their food smells so good wafting across the Channel.
A dik-dik, pronounced “dĭk’ dĭk”, is a small antelope in the Genus Madoqua that lives in the bushes of eastern and southern Africa. Dik-diks stand 30–40 cm (approx. 12–16 inches) at the shoulder, are 50–70 cm (approx. 20-28 inches) long, weigh 3–6 kg (approx. 7-16 pounds) and can live for up to 10 years
thank god someone ACTUALLY knows what theyre talking about when they say stuff about what the bible says about being gay.
A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is

Woah holy cow * U *

Church Made of Guns and Ammo
I want it.
On the one hand, want.
On the other OH GOD I THINK THAT NAGANT REVOLVER MIGHT BE ONE OF THE ONES PRODUCED FOR THE BELGIAN ARMY PRIOR TO WORLD WAR ONE THAT’S ONE OF THE RAREST GUNS IN THE WORLD WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT THAT’S LIKE USING THE CEILING OF THE SISTINE CHAPEL AS A DINING ROOM TABLE
And on the third hand, fuck the revolver if it’s just one of the Russian Army’s, that’s one of the most common guns.
Honestly, if it was one of the Belgian ones I don’t think they’d use it like that.
HEY. HEY ALLIE. ALLIE LOOKIT ALLIE. 8D
