*phil lester shivers in distance*
Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.
Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.

The brunette part is really important.
Fun fact, our hair color reveals our place in pansexual society. Blondes are our record keepers. The great librarians, they collect, analyze, store, and distribute information to the rest of us. They are blonde because they reflect the light of knowledge. Those with Black Hair are our inventors. They investigate, produce, and teach new technologies so that we may thrive in future times. Their hair is black because of their frequent dives into the void of the unknown. Brunettes are our ambassadors. They interact with people, plants, and animals, forging bonds that can protect us when we are threatened. Their hair is brown because of their deep connection to the earth.
And as for redheads.
You don’t want to know the purpose of the Red Heads. But may their hellfire consume our enemies.
Can we talk about how Bianchi looks like Josh Peck
IT’S HIM! IT’S THE HILLSIDE STRANGLER!!
IT’S THE THEATER THUG!
I just wanna be a dork for a minute
H.H. Holmes didn’t build the hotel, he got close to an elderly woman, got her to name him in her will, and killed her. She left everything to him, including her hotel.
And then he modded the FUCK out of it.
Beds that dumped bodies into the basement, bricking people in, gas in the bedrooms, deadly mazes…
H.H. Holmes didn’t fuck around.
YES HELLO UM EXCUSE ME BUT HH HOLMES IS MY FAVORITE SERIAL KILLER AND I DID A REPORT ON M’BOY LAST YEAR SO I CAN TELL YA THIS:
It wasn’t the ‘elderly’ woman’s hotel. There was a drug store owned by a woman, Dr. Elizabeth Holton, who was actually only two years older than Herman Mudgett, known popularly as H.H. Holmes. There is no proof that she was killed by Holmes so it’s speculated that she gave up the practice to him in 1886 around the time she became pregnant with her second daughter after Holmes had been working there for a while. And to prove that she was still alive after this time, the Chicago city directories still listed her as a physician living on 6157 S. Honore Street as late as 1900 (her husband still had the railroad job). She was still on 63rd street, about a block away from the old pharmacy and “castle,” in 1892, when a city voter list has her living at 800 63rd Street. That she was on the voter list at all is somewhat notable - under “remarks,” a section usually left blank, the registrar wrote in “woman.” Also, she did move to California with Frances, her daughter, at some point, presumably after her husband died in 1910. She died there in 1933. SO NO HOLMES DID NOT KILL THE PREVIOUS OWNER AND THE CASTLE CAME ALONG LATER.
Holmes was also a conman in other places and that’s where he changed his name from Herman Webster Mudgett to Henry Howard Holmes (Indiana, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Canada). He went to Medical School at the University of Michigan and he stole corpses from the school laboratory and would disfigure them and then collect their insurance money (which is how he got the majority of his cash).
The “Murder Castle” came along in the early 1890s and opened as a hotel in 1893. It was located right across the street from the drug store and he had several different builders help build it so he was the only one who truly knew the inside layout. The place was insane. It had diagonal ceilings and doors that would open up to brick walls and it truly was a maze with several floors. He tortured people in many different forms with the motive of taking their insurance money and also the fact that he was a sick fuck and enjoyed it. There were gas chambers and various torture rooms and he would also skin people alive and sell the skeletons to local medical schools which is how he got more money. But in the end, he was unmasked after being found guilty for insurance fraud and one thing led to another and next thing ya know, you’re confessing to 27 murders and hanging from a rope.
HOT DAMN HISTORY SIDE!
If an intruder ever comes to fucking murder you. You throw your mother fucking head back pull your arms in weird shapes and whip your head forward again and say the anti crist has awoken whilst smiling the biggest smile you have ever made. no smart person would ever fuck around with you if you did that.
STOP REBLOGGING THIS PLEASE ABORT MISSION ABORT MISSION
I HAVE NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD IN MY LIFFFEEE
I remember seeing this short film a long time ago. Basically, this little machine sees a television with a pretty doll face. She wants to be just like what she sees on t.v, and changes her appearance. The standards get higher and higher (literally), but she tries earnestly.
You can see what happens in the end.This video leaves a powerful message about how our standards of beauty are too high and soon it becomes out of reach.
As one of the comments of the video says
"She was original but she died a copy."
