The whole “earth is round not flat” thing as a major scientific discovery is a very Western-centric thing

Arab and Asian empires had mathematically proven the earth was round way before white people

Arab mathematicians had calculated the circumference of the Earth hundreds of years before Columbus sailed. Even the ancient Greeks knew the world was round and provided their own estimates for size. The real reason nobody except Spain would give Columbus money to go to Asia was because the math had been done and everybody knew the journey from Europe to Asia by sailing west was ridiculously longer than Columbus was claiming. Columbus wasn’t just bad at geography, he also flunked math.

THIS IS MY NEW FAVOURITE LINE

One day I was sitting on the bus behind a girl with headphones on with a guy started calling her “Blondie,” and just generally telling her how he’d like to get to know her. He wasn’t particularly crude about it, but it was clear his attention was unwelcome. But he kept trying, and she kept replying in monosyllables while looking straight ahead.

Finally, I told him that women do not like having men get in their faces on public transportation. Naturally he told me that he did it all the time, and no one ever complained. I explained why. He continued to defend himself, and finally told me that maybe it was different for me, because I wasn’t hot. I politely informed him that I hadn’t liked it eighty pounds ago, either, and that if he actually asked women their opinion, he’d be surprised.

So with the arrogant confidence of the truly ignorant, he stood up and asked the bus at large what they thought.

And they told him, in no uncertain terms.

Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family. 

FUCK



A few days after this, the Mayor of Warsaw revoked the doctor of his position of director of the hospital. And something else, but I didn’t understand. [source] if anyone understands Polish better than Google Translate…
