kakuzu’s face will never stop being fun to draw
The GOP has a plan to stop Wendy Davis: blatant voter suppression.
Women don’t like having their bodies policed, and are supporting Davis like no Democrat has been backed before. But Republicans aren’t fighting back on the issues — they’ve pushed through a Voter ID law that blocks the votes of countless Texas women.
Starting this November, Texans must show a photo ID with their up-to-date legal name instead of IDs like a birth certificate. That’s not a problem for single or married men — but it leaves a third of Texas women scrambling in a state with just 81 DMVs in its 254 counties.
The only way the GOP can keep Texas is by rigging the game. Women have the power to turn this state blue for the first time in two decades, but we need to help secure their rights first. Please, join us in calling on the Texas legislature to get rid of this unconstitutional Voter ID lawand stop trying to strip women of their votes.
DANGER! DANGER FOR TEXAS WOMEN!
"Directoire" Hussar Officer Sword
- Dated: circa 1795-1800
- Culture: French
This early Napoléonic sword, known as the "Directoire" then as the "Consulat", is a typical hussar officer sword. It has a single copper branch with a lion head pommel with two languets on each side of the blade. The cross-guard or quillons end in a shape of a lion’s paw.
The scabbard is made of leather with two large copper mounts and two suspension rings. It is largely ornate with foliage and a web and shells designs. According to light cavalry habits, the steel blade is curved and also ornate with military patterns and foliage.
The letters “JSB” are engraved near the guard; they stand for “Johann Schimmelbush”, a sword maker established from 1780 to 1800 in Solingen.
- Most swords made right after the 1789 French Revolution were of poor quality.
- Napoleon reorganised the supply and later created some famous sword models such as the “AN IX” for the light cavalry.

Elven Lembas BreadElven Lembas Bread
2 ½ cups of flour (I used bread flour but you can use all purpous flour too)
1 tablespoon of baking powder
¼ teaspoon of salt
½ cup of butter
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon honey
2/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
½ teaspoon of vanilla
Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and mix well till fine granules (easiest way is with an electric mixer). Then add the sugar and cinnamon, and mix them thoroughly. Finally add the cream, honey, and vanilla and stir until a nice, thick dough forms.
Roll the dough out about 1/2 in thickness. Cut out 3-inch squares and transfer the dough to a cookie sheet.Criss-cross each square from corner-to-corner with a knife, lightly (not cutting through the dough). Bake for about 12 minutes or more (depending on the thickness of the bread) until it is set and lightly golden.
Let cool completely before eating, this bread tastes better room temperature and dry. Also for more flavor you can add more cinnamon or other spices.
they didn’t turn out super pretty, but that’s just because i suck at baking. they’re really delicious though!

This is a pretty large Turkish Jambiya dagger with a very fine black Wootz Damascus blade, probably from the 18th Century. The Silver hilt was probably made later on, around the 19th century.
The blade is nicely ground with a very thick and pronounced central spine. The hilt is covered in silver sheet over a wooden core and decorated with floral patterns with a monster on either side.
