and things were very historical
I'm Riet. I werf flammen at things I don't like and pickel the hauben of things I like. History. Crass jokes. Revolution. Conrad Veidt's impossible face. Mitchell and Webb. Big smooshy dogs. Germany. Dapper folks. Werfing flammen at bigots, especially Naztalgists. Uniforms. Folk Punk. Cowardice. Crushing depression. Pickelhaubes. Politics. Gulag. Genocide. The Aubreyad. Russian music. Klezmer. Cookies. Hornblower. Things what look like other things. And finally, the love of my life, the Red Army Chorus.

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

This is all incredibly important, some cities have as little as 60 -120 days left.  Try using a refillable water container, and if you’re a California resident, make sure to report water waste in public spaces.

Also, maybe take a second and sign the petition to stop a giant Slip n’ slide from being built in Los Angeles. Priorities.

1916 private soldier, Battle of the Somme
A photographer, Thom Atkinson, has documented 13 military kits in a series called ‘Soldiers Inventories’. I’ve picked a few to share with you guys over a couple of posts so they can be enjoyed individually, in all their glory. It will also show which are the most popular kits. 
By its very nature, war requires a soldier to be prepared for every possible eventuality. The sheer amount of gear that is demanded by this level of preparedness means good pack configuration is a necessity. It is really interesting to see how a soldiers carry has developed over time, so I encourage you all to check out the full set here. 
Thanks to thenewartemis for their post that reminded me about seeing this in their post here. Below is a breakdown of what is featured above:
Hob nail boots
Puttees (for binding trousers around lower legs)
Socks
Shirt and vest
Gas mask container
Gas mask
Non Commissioned ranks hat
Notebook and service warrant card
Battledress tunic – note stripes on sleeve denote rank
Mess tins
Tin opener and can of food, appears to be tinned stewed apple
Oxo cubes
Bar of chocolate
Bar of soap
Water flask
Belt
Leather belt with leather pouches for kit
Haversack
Longjohn under garments, battledress trousers and braces
Boot polish and two brushes
Blankets
Dog tags – imprinted with name, rank and service number
Trench club – for breaking heavy ground for trenching into and for fighting the enemy at close quarters
Entrenching tool handle; often the handle was customised with lumps of metal and made into a trench club
Leather pouch for entrenching tool
Field dressing
Cigarettes and matches
Mess kit containing knife, fork spoon, shaving brush, soap and brass button polisher (slid underneath battledress button to protect BD from polish)
Polish
Razor
Gun oil
Cloth for pull-through for cleaning barrels internally
Bullet
Ammunition belt, containing clips of bullets
Penknife and pull through cord
Entrenching tool spade; sometimes soldiers sharpened the edges of the spade and used these to fight
Lee Enfield 303 bolt action rifle. It was developed at the beginning of the twentieth century as an attempt to create a standard rifle for both the infantry and soldiers on horseback. As it turned out it was ideally suited to conditions in the trenches – it wasn’t good at firing over long distances, but was really robust and could stand up to the mud. It was still used right up into the 1950s.
Bayonet – to be attached to fore end of rifle
Helmet – with cover
Fob watch, personal effects. Officers tended to have pocket watches more so than infantry soldiers
Coins – possibly local francs or similar, personal effects
Scabbard for bayonet, worn on leather belt around waist over hip
5 round ammunition clips – ready to load magazine of 303 rifle


i am entirely suspicious of this man. Surely his name is not actually Tommy Atkins.
