Normandy Beaches in 1944 & 70 Years Later
On June 6, 1944, Allied soldiers descended on the beaches of Normandy for D-Day, an operation that turned the tide of the Second World War against the Nazis, marking the beginning of the end of the conflict. Reuters photographer Chris Helgren compiled archive pictures taken during the invasion and went back to the same places to photograph them as they appear today.

I’ve never met a more incompetent batch of thieves.
full view because i always make my canvases too big.
can we talk about chocolate oranges for a second
wow so beautiful
THE WHITE CHOCOLATE MOTHERFUCKING ORANGES ARE SO GODDAMN DELICIOUS I COULD PULL OUT MY EYEBALLS AND CRUSH THEM UNDER MY ASS.
When all is said and done, the moon slivered from an orb to a crescent,
the dishes put away, the faucet turned off, the last cigarette crushed under heel,
there is silence so deep even the ocean floor strains to hear it.
And you think, sitting on this empty bed, about the hand you once knew,
the fingerprints whose swirls you memorized like your own,
and the space left behind by this hand, what it did to itself,
what life does to the people who end theirs by free will.
You try to remember the hand’s smell, something like apricot
mixed with sweat and sea salt, but eventually you remember it so well
that it never comes back.
And the night still drones on, and strangers still eat dinner alone,
and you do now as well, never having known
what a lonely thing an empty chair is.
There are constellations you will never learn the names of.
There are languages you will never speak a word of.
There are people in your life you will never see again, like this one,
people you would see in a dream and tug on their sleeve,
saying, Come back, I can’t do this alone,
without even realizing
that they were always doing it alone,
and that’s why they ended everything.

[German shout of “Everyone shut up! We’ve called this conference to solve the world’s problems, not to fight about the problems of our past. And since I’m the only country who seems to know how to run a meeting, we’ll follow my rules from here on out. Eight minutes each for speeches, no chit chat about side deals, and absolutely no going over the time limit. Now if you want to go, make sure you’re prepared and raise your hand, but do so in a way that does not mock any salute of my country’s past.]

A brief summary of why I don’t like Severus Snape
since you’ve included the deathly hallows I have to deduct that your argument is invalid
Sorry I forgot that wanting to fuck Lily Potter makes up for being a terrible person
Can we talk about this for a second?
Because the way I see it if he had just wanted to fuck Lilly Potter that desire would have ended After She DIED.
There is a lot more to Snape than his love and desire for Lilly, and true he was also a HORRIBLE person. But I think he was trying to make up for that, I think he realized what he had done was WRONG and regretted the choices he had made in his life time.
Snape understood exactly what he would have to do to make better choices and improve his life/legacy and he spent Harry’s entire life doing it. But he is also human, so he made mistakes, he treated Harry badly because Harry’s father treated him badly.
James Potter was NOT a saint.
And Severus Snape was NOT a villain.
They are both HUMAN, capable of both change and error. Fictitious humans to be sure but JK made them so well rounded its hard to remember that sometimes.
Snape was a man who made bad choices in worse situations and fought for the rest of his life to make up for them but he was far from perfect.
I think the fans forget that sometimes.
By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’
Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.
one of his best friends is hermione granger and he’s dating ginny “bat bogey hex” weasley why shouldn’t he be scared of angry women
plus when someone as calm and zen as luna yells at you, you know shits gonna go down
First we got us a new Thor and now Falcon is taking up the Captain America mantle! Oh and Iron man has become superior and is packing his bags and moving to San Francisco. SAM WILSON IS CAPTAIN AMERICA! Wonder what else Marvel has up their sleeve.
