[Insert Witty Remark]

Mostly stuff I like - which consists of vinyl toys, shoes, Batman, Marvel and DC tings. I'm a cake and cheeseburger fiend. Nothing remotely witty though.

Oh, and my name's Nia, 50% Egyptian 50% Tongan.

Not many people know the stereotypical heart shape was meant to be two hearts fused together


Hey there. History nerd here… not many people know this “fact” because it’s not true. The universal heart shape we recognize today has nothing to do with the heart, actually. It has to do with early Roman birth control.

The Romans used a plant called silphium to prevent pregnancy. It was so effective that it became a critical part of Rome’s economy and daily life. It was literally so important to their culture that the image of it’s seed were even imprinted on currency.

It’s the exact shape of the heart we know today, and this is the first time it’s visage was ever recorded in history. It was so important to them, and so highly prized that they actually drove the plant into extinction by over harvesting it for use.

This shape was so ingrained in their society’s conscious as a symbol of sexual liberation that it became associated with all aspects of intimacy, eg. sex, unity, and love.

TL;DR:
It’s not two hearts sewn together. It’s an ancient plant that Romans used to have gratuitous amounts of sex before condoms were around.

how romantic

Swimming mangoes and the greatness of egyptian creativity.

In absolute hysterics as the acting reminds me of the old egyptian films that are played on daytime TV in Egypt, in short, they have completely sold it to me. Also, I want to work for JWT Cairo who are the brains behind this, who wouldn’t?!

For anyone who wants a simple proof that Palestine existed before 1948, here’s a coin from 1927 worth 10 Mils (this currency is no longer used). Also note that the word “Palestine” is written in both Arabic and Hebrew indicating not only a Jewish presence, but a prominent one. Jews and Arabs DID live side by side in peace. The Zionist idea that they cannot coexist is an absolute fallacy.

"Palestinians are an invented people!!"
