    The lion hunts of Ashurbanipal -details from the hall reliefs of the Palace at Ninevah

    Assyrian king Ashurbanipal, who reigned 669-630 BCE, is shown in the first detail to be aiming his bow and arrow atop a chariot. The second image displays an arrow of his shot, flying in mid-air towards a lion. A close-up of Ashurbanipal is given in the final photograph to present the immense detail of these reliefs, for instance, note the intricate carvings which cover his clothing.

  6. Six years ago today, after a culmination of issues that had been getting on top of me, anxiety and stress, I suffered a breakdown and entered a period of depression. It was a difficult period in my life, particularly the part of not getting out of bed and going days without talking to anyone. I would like to thank my friends and family for all the support that they gave me, and continue to do. I would also like to thank the NHS for their network of therapists, which I would have been unable to afford in a privatised world. Of course, there are still days where the anxiety attacks come back, but my mental health issues are largely manageable now. It gave me a different outlook on life. Not quite like that scene in Blues Brothers where Jake sees the light, but still it gave me greater perspective. Anyway, enough of my gibberish. Just be excellent to each other.

    Love and socialism.

  7. Richard M. Nixon gives a thumbs-up as he announces his resignation, which he did so in a letter given to Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger.

    "If the right people had been in charge of Nixon’s funeral, his casket would have been launched into one of those open-sewage canals that empty into the ocean just south of Los Angeles. He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a president. Nixon was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin." - Hunter S. Thompson on Richard Nixon.

    Personally, I think one of the worst thing to come out of Nixon’s resignation was the fact that every single scandal, no matter how mediocre, is suffixed by lazy, unimaginative journalists with the term “-gate”. 

  8. Have just ordered Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery due to seeing too many people unboxing it on tumblr. Subliminal marketing at its finest.
