Get your printer on parents, I’ve got some fun activities for the little’ns.

Sorry about my blog being totally empty for the past few days. I’m in Manila right now and a typhoon decided to fuck over the electrical grid and blackout the city. WAHEY.

This post speaks to me on a spiritual level.

Excellent graph! Fits most situations, if you don’t know whether to use 'tu' or 'vous', in French.

Hilary Mantel, A Place of Greater Safety

To the crowd, Marat had long been a saint: he was now a martyr.

The assassination of Marat on 13 July 1793 drew attention to the sheer size and scale of the danger: in the heart of Revolutionary Paris a young royalist from Normandy, Charlotte Corday, had been able to kill ‘l’ami du peuple.’ In his person she had wanted to destroy one of the symbols of Revolution. But her gesture provided the Montagne with new-found strength and gave new life to the Revolutionary movement. For Marat was very popular among the sans-culottes for whose welfare he had shown a deep-seated concern and sympathy. His murder caused great anger and bitterness, and to the desire for vengeance was added the demand for measures of public safety. Paris provided Marat with a lavish funeral which the members of the Convention all attended on 15 July; his heart was hung from the vaults of the Cordelier Club. As a ‘martyr for liberty’ Marat became, along with Lepeletier, who had been murdered on 20 January, and Chalier, beheaded on 17 July, one of the godheads in the Pantheon of the French Revolution.
