King Xerxes was king of Persia from 486-465 BC. His wife was Queen Amestris. King Xerxes was murdered by Artabanus, who then gave the position of power to his seven sons. According to Aristotle, Artabanus was then killed by Artaxerxes, son of Xerxes and Amestris.

This draws interesting parallels to FMA, where the country of Xerxes was destroyed by Father. Father then created the seven homunculi, and gave the highest position of power in the country to one of his sons, and the other homunculi watched over the Amestrian cities.

It is fitting, that Father, like Artabanus, was killed by Edward Elric, with a mother from Amestris, and a father from Xerxes. Like Artaxerxes, Ed avenged the Xerxesian people by dealing the final blow on Father.

In case you needed proof that Peta is literal scum. 

Not to mention that in a 2010 inspection conducted by a VDACS veterinarian, it was discovered that 84 percent of the animals Peta took in were killed within 24 hours. [source]

A quick reminder that PETA is literal scum of the earth.

The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.  @KrystVegaNeteru

This is beautiful.

I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.

I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it

Q
Do you ever feel like having a gf prevents you from truly knowing that feel? Does it make you feel insincere? Do questions like this keep you up 'til 3am?

seriousjones:

on the contrary. just as you can’t truly appreciate light until you have known darkness, you cannot truly know that feel when no gf until you’ve experienced that feel when gf. not to say that the feelings of those who have never had a gf are invalid, only that the purest form of that feel comes from truly knowing what those with no gf miss out on.

you can enjoy life without knowing death, but once you learn that you will die someday, life becomes much more precious. in the same way, that feel when no gf is only enhanced when the feeler is introduced to the opposite feel
