Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”

holy fuck why the fuck do retail jobs make you do those fucking “Virtual Job Assessment” tests like jesus christ. Imagine if they had those in like the late 1800s

Over the past three days, five of your coworkers have died in the blast furnace due to a speed-up in the steel mill in which you work. Your manager says that if your plant doesn’t produce another half a ton of steel per day, he’ll cut everyone’s wages to $4/week. How would you describe your outlook on the situation?

a) I’m a person who can always see the positives in a situation
b) I enjoy a fast-paced work environment
c) I enjoy a job where my employer recognizes outstanding achievement

nerdismqueen asked: What did FDR do about Pearl Harbor?

ladyhistory:

Unbeknownst to most historians, FDR was actually the first president to be involved with an atomic bombing. After hearing the news of Pearl Harbor, he immediately attached a jetpack to the back of his wheelchair before tying a tiny nuclear warhead to the bottom of it. Under the cover of night, FDR launched from the White House and puttered off to Japan where he bombed a pet store, mistaking it for a miniature military base. There were mass hamster casualties, which proved the deadliness of the weapon’s power and potential for destruction in the future.

i love that world war 2 is called world war 2

it sounds like the sequel to an action movie

“WORLD WAR 2….

GERMANY’S BACK, AND THIS TIME….

IT’S PERSONAL”

this has a great deal of accuracy though
