++ CBLDF SDCC Welcome Party 2014: A Hellenic Blacklist
Anaxagoras, a physiologoi, was a pioneer in scientific inquiry. His naturalistic theories of explanation were considered a danger to public religion and civic culture, making him an enemy of the polis. He was indicted on charges of impiety for asserting that the sun is a mass of incandescent, red-hot metal, the moon is an earthy sphere, and that the stars are fiery stones.
The fire of the sun, the glow of the moon, and the twinkle of flaming-white stars eclipsed by temple incense and scorched olive leaf: Tunisian amber, Italian bergamot, and blue and white musks blanketed in styrax, libanon, and myrron.
"Concerning the gods, I have no means of knowing whether they exist or not or what sort they may be, because of the obscurity of the subject, and the brevity of human life.”
Protagoras was one of the earliest Sophists, teaching that the quintessence of good citizenship lies in self-restraint, the pursuit of justice, and the preservation of the social order. He promoted the virtues of efficient management of one’s affairs, properly running one’s household, and making worthwhile and effective contributions to Athenian society. Because of the wisdom of his teachings, he was appointed lawgiver for the colony of Thurii.
Despite his contributions, Protagoras’ outspoken agnosticism inflamed the anger of the Athenians. According to Diogenes Laërtius and Cicero, Protagoras was eventually banished from Athens, and all of his written works were collected and burned in the agora.

Russell Crowe is a badass in a good way.
hi there, anon. i didn’t realize i took a lot of selfies. thanks for the info. so, your question was whether i think i’m pretty. you already answered that no, i am not.
and i have to agree, anon. i don’t think i’m pretty bc i’m not.
i always have a double chin.
i constantly look like i haven’t slept in a week bc of my dark circles
and, i always look sunburnt. idfk why
i have this white line across my nose that makeup can’t cover up
i have tons of wrinkles on my forehead. like what the hell? i’m 25
also, it’s the size of fucking texas
i still don’t know how to smile in pictures bc i hate my fucking teeth
my feet are flat. my hips are huge. my boobs are weird. i am covered in stretch marks. my voice is grating. my ears stick out two miles from my head. i am always fucking sweating and i’ve been asked if i was pregnant more times than i can count.
so, you’re right. i’m not pretty. i can’t stand the way i look.
which is why it’s so fucking important that i post “a lot” of selfies. bc, anon, you’d better fucking believe that if i look in the mirror that day and don’t cringe, i’m gonna take a fucking picture to save that tiny little second. and GOD FORBID i show the world that i posses a little self love every once in a fucking while.
TO ANYONE READING THIS: DON’T EVER LET SOMEONE MAKE YOU FEEL ASHAMED FOR LIKING THE WAY YOU LOOK—EVEN IF IT’S JUST FOR A SECOND. IF YOU LOOK NICE, YOU TAKE THAT FUCKING SELFIE AND YOU SHOW IT TO THE GOD DAMN WORLD BC THEY DESERVE TO SEE THE GOD/GODDESS YOU ARE!
that beard finally coming in? go ahead, bro. take a selfie.
you finally got that piercing you’ve been wanting? not really my style, but you’re fucking rocking it. take a selfie.
your boobs look awesome in that shirt? take a selfie.
you finally lose or gain that weight you’ve been working on? take a selfie.
your eyeliner look awesome? your new sunglasses make you look like a celebrity avoiding the paparazzi? you killing that tux? you feel a tiny, rare level of self love? you always on a high level of self love? you just like your face?
TAKE A MOTHAFUCKING SELFIE!
thanks for the question, anon. this one’s for you.
This right here is how you respond to a troll when someone online wants to tell you you’re ugly or fat or whathave you.
Oh, you KNOW I gotta do this.
at the risk of this going horribly im going to do this
because i’ll regret it
This isn’t going to end well
