#he really is disarmingly sweet and genuinely charming #he’s not even trying he’s just fucking like that #when he was born he probably apologized to his mom for the fuss and told a nurse she was pretty
He made Chelsea Lately giggle like a school girl.
WELL HELLO THERE SIR
this is your periodic reminder that old-timey medicines did not fuck around
It’s called One Night, because that’s all the time you have left.
But you will stop coughing.
If these font sizes don’t speak to the relative value of Palestinian life, I don’t know what does.
Not just the font—after all, “Hamas militants step up attacks”? Yeah, that’s not really the problem. Note, as well, that they never say Palestinians are killed, just the death toll itself.
So much self loathing
But at the same time no wonder I feel shitty. When people blatently jgnore you and turn their back on you when you’re trying to talk.
On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.
Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.
- Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
- While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.
- She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
- In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
- She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
- Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”
The term BAMF was coined for such persons.
Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?
Yet another story I would like to read.
You guys! There IS A MOVIE!
