i will never not reblog this.
Last year, my school decided to show this video to prove a point to the teenagers. So in our homebases, we were showed this and I wanted to cry while watching. After, the teacher spoke to us about what we thought about it. Before I had the chance to say anything, a kid raised his hand and said “This girl thinks she’s fat, as obviously she was in the mirror, and is really stick skinny because she never eats. It’s horrible.” My teacher didn’t like the answer so he said, “The girl in the mirror was normal size, and that’s why this is horrible.” I never looked at the kid the same again. It disgusted me so much that he thought the girl in the mirror was giant, she is perfectly normal and gorgeous. Well done society.
Obligatory post because patch day.
help, i can’t stop laughing
im laughing look at this poor creature
Royal Naval uniform
Royal Naval uniform: pattern 1795-1812. 18th-19th century. English. Brass; gold alloy; linen; silk & wool.
This uniform, which belonged to Admiral Sir William Cornwallis (1744-1819) illustrates the principal changes to uniform regulations for the year 1795. These include the change in colour of the lapels and cuffs from white to blue and the inclusion of epaulettes. Epaulettes were a military fashion that came from France, and although they were not mentioned in uniform regulations until 1795, some officers wore them anyway. In terms of contemporary fashion, this uniform reflects popular styles with its narrow sleeves, cuffs and lapels, and illustrates the leaner silhouette that was popular in male dress towards the end of the 18th century. | Royal Museums Greenwich
