I am ashamed I never thought about this before. His name would have to change for different languages.
Will forever love that Norwegian just went fuck it and changed the meaning more than anyone else. But “Jeg er Lord Voldemort” just doesn’t anagram well.
MUGGLES WILL BOW BEFORE THE HORROR THAT IS MARK NEELSTIN
Did anyone notice the Czech translation is “Me Voldemort.”
Me Voldemort. No like mudblood. Kill mudblood. Voldemort like.
Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom, Romeo. Yuuup. It’s good to be Danish.
THIS IS SO FUCKING FUNNY
I’m sorry but how could you take Voldemort seriously knowing his name was
i’m guessing they just had to skip this part in the chinese translation.
I’ve been laughing at this for the past 10 minutes.
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions? How often had I sped past them as I learned of male achievement and men’s place in the history books? Then I read Rosalind Miles’s book “The Women’s History of the World” (recently republished as “Who Cooked the Last Supper?”) and I knew I needed to look again. History is full of fabulous females who have been systematically ignored, forgotten or simply written out of the records. They’re not all saints, they’re not all geniuses, but they do deserve remembering.
HELLO BOYS I HAVE A QUESTION CAN YOU FEEL OUR BOOBS WHEN WE DO THE HUG
WE CAN FEEL YOUR BOOBS WHEN YOU WE DO THE HUG SORRY
IS THAT WHY YOU HUG US
BITCH IT MIGHT BE
Hahahaha I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED THIS! Some hugs just feel particularly booby, you know?
asks you if she’s pretty
your heart will drop like a wineglass
on the hardwood floor
part of you will want to say
of course you are, don’t ever question it
and the other part
the part that is clawing at
will want to grab her by her shoulders
look straight into the wells of
her eyes until they echo back to you
you do not have to be if you don’t want to
it is not your job
both with feel right
one will feel better
she will only understand the first
when she wants to cut her hair off
or wear her brother’s clothes
you will feel the words in your
mouth like marbles
you do not have to be pretty if you don’t want to
it is not your job

“OpenDyslexic is created to help with some of the symptoms of dyslexia. Letters have heavy weighted bottoms to indicate direction. You are able to quickly figure out which part of the letter is down which aids in recognizing the correct letter, and sometimes helps to keep your brain from rotating them around. Consistently weighted bottoms can also help reinforce the line of text. The unique shapes of each letter can help prevent confusion through flipping and swapping.” This new font was developed specifically to help those with dyslexia.
