I hate you too, Johnny. I hate you so much, I think I’m going to die from it.

"My problem is that I fall in love with words, rather than actions. I fall in love with ideas and thoughts, instead of reality. And it will be the death of me."

An English mother tearfully waves goodbye to her children as they are evacuated to the countryside from London’s Paddington Station. The evacuation of civilians in Britain during the war was designed to save civilians in Britain, particularly children, from the risks associated with aerial bombings of cities by moving them to areas thought to be less at risk. Operation Pied Piper, which began on 1 September 1939, officially relocated more than 3.5 million people. Further waves of official evacuation and re-evacuation occurred from the South and East coast in June 1940, when a seaborne invasion was expected, and from affected cities after the Blitz began in September 1940. Hundreds of thousands of British children were relocated to the countryside, or even overseas to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and other remote destinations. London, England, U.K. April 1942.

It really bugs me when you hear young kids being sexist or racist or homophobic because like they’re just kids and they’ve already been infected with other people’s bullshit

Any advice I would’ve given to my 19-year-old self, I wouldn’t have listened to anyway.


The oldest person alive was born on April 19, 1897, meaning that April 18th, 1897 was approximately the last time the Earth was inhabited by an entirely different set of people and if you don’t think that’s the realest shit ever then you can get right on outta town.


"I am half Scottish. My father is an expat from Glasgow, and on my mother’s side there’s a bit of French, a bit of Scottish, a bit of Irish. But the Scottish tartan on my mother’s side is Royal Stuart, which is funny since I’m playing Mary Stuart. Theoretically we’re related, but not legitimately, unfortunately. Some lord went and knocked up a serving wench or something back in the day!
