More than a decade after Moscow withdrew its forces from Latvia, a crumbling Soviet-era military building is slowly consumed by the Baltic sea near Liepãjasuch.

re-reblogging cause it’s still funny
oh my god can i just say the number of notes this has is astounding, and in the spirit of this picture, I wish all of you a merry christmas!
no but Celtic culture was the best. You boast and be arrogant all you want, but you best be able to back it up if someone calls you out. And don’t insult someone if you’re not willing to fight them on it.
Warrior cultures are great.
It’s okay if you’re too tired to do everything you want for your practice.

It’s okay to doubt your practice.

How did we go from being creatures who could over come beasts much stronger than ourselves, using their skin for our clothing, and bones for our weapons. To being so weak that someone calling us a “cunt” a thousand miles away over a…
You’re so irritating right now. You’re assuming the question is about how were affected by words. No. go on my blog and look up the responses and you’ll see I’m talking about the evolutionary process that’s led us to be weak enough to allow other people’s perceptions to have an effect on us due to adaption among other people.
God this website is full of idiots.
I was actually talking about that very same process though?
I don’t know where that got confused.
Being affected by ingroups and outgroup’s perception of us is nothing new or modern. Regardless of language, we get hurt when people insult us.
Pre-Christian Celtic tribes didn’t take lightly to being insulted. (hELLO Efnysien!) The Tain etc are full of threats like “if you don’t do what I want, I’ll make sure that the bards only write nasty songs about you saying you were a coward” which was a legitimate threat and carried a lot of weight.
Sepukuu was a whole thing over honor and being disrespected.
Hellenic myths about gods being insulted or belittled are all about them reacting harshly to those who hurt them.
Christianity (as far as the actual bible verses) put a lot of weight on not insulting or belittling people (well to an extent but it’s still there)
Pack animals that have been shunned from the tribe get depressed, even in modern days.
Being hurt over insults is not some modern day invention. Just that now it’s not allowed or proper to go out and bash some fucker’s head in, so we internalize it. We take it out on ourselves instead.
It’s more a problem of culture and sociology, not of our actual evolution.
How did we go from being creatures who could over come beasts much stronger than ourselves, using their skin for our clothing, and bones for our weapons. To being so weak that someone calling us a “cunt” a thousand miles away over a computer screen is cause enough to make you harm yourself. What happened?
There’s a bit of evidence to suggest that when our focus is not fairly heavily on survival, we become more susceptible feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, or uncertainty.
You know, shit you don’t really have time to angst over when you need to focus on immediate needs like food, shelter, and not being eaten by a larger predator.
How did we go from being creatures who could over come beasts much stronger than ourselves, using their skin for our clothing, and bones for our weapons. To being so weak that someone calling us a “cunt” a thousand miles away over a computer screen is cause enough to make you harm yourself. What happened?Because our world is full of a bunch of fucking wusses.
Agreed. And idiots
Yooooo, blame the brain, not the person (in most cases). Depression and self-harm isn’t always such a simple thing though I do see where you’re getting at
This is completely confusing what parts of the mind are at work here. Ingroups and outgroups have been around for ages, and that’s the part that gets affected when people call us c*nts. Not the part that was survival based and had to kill to survive. People still got upset over insults (and actually prob moreso than we do today) in ancient cultures, including Pre-Christian ones. And pack animals are strongly affected by isolation and shunning as well.
I’m about to go off to work so I can’t look up links but yea. Not the same thing.
I don’t know if you’re trying to be inspiring but that’s not it.

Spams your dashboards again sorry not sorry.
Rewatching entry #18 is so creepy and sad because it just sounds so much like Tim’s voice shouting “No!” and Tim’s raspy cough.
It’s so distinctive.
Why the hell didn’t I figure it out right then.
