From the Doobly Doo:

"My feelings about some of the major issues women face in science, wrapped up in one spoken word poem. Would love to hear your interpretation of this, too."

What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.


Did y’all know about this?

Religious terrorism of the highest order

It wasn’t an estimate of 30 million but of 10-15 million. They handed Congo over to leopold at the berlin conference. Congo became belgium’s private property, america was the first to recognise Congo as lepold’s colony and supported him.(america obviously heavily benefited) 

He was reported to have said "I will give them my Congo…but they have no right to know what I did there" so he decided to destroy a lot of the documents. And the sad thing is we don’t know about all he did to the Congo and it’s people so it could be that the death toll was 30 million. 

This is a translation of a letter he wrote to the missionaries.

 “Reverends, Fathers and Dear Compatriots: The task that is given to fulfill is very delicate and requires much tact. You will go certainly to evangelize, but your evangelization must inspire above all Belgium interests. Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo is never to teach the blacks to know God, this they know already. They speak and submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, one Nzakomba, and what else I don’t know. They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else’s wife, to lie and to insult is bad. Have courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they know already.

Your essential role is to facilitate the task of administrators and industrials, which means you will go to interpret the gospel in the way it will be the best to protect our interests in that part of the world. For these things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting our savages from the richness that is plenty in their land. To avoid that, they get interested in it, and make you murderous competition and dream one day to overthrow you.

Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering, and encouraging your followers to love poverty, like “Happier are the poor because they will inherit the heaven” and, “It’s very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.” You have to detach from them and make them disrespect everything which gives courage to affront us. I make reference to their Mystic System and their war fetish – warfare protection – which they pretend not to want to abandon, and you must do everything in your power to make it disappear.

Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for they won’t revolt when the recommendation of the priest is contradictory to their parent’s teachings. The children have to learn to obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their soul. You must singularly insist on their total submission and obedience, avoid developing the spirit in the schools, teach students to read and not to reason. There, dear patriots, are some of the principles that you must apply. You will find many other books, which will be given to you at the end of this conference. Evangelize the blacks so that they stay forever in submission to the white colonialists, so they never revolt against the restraints they are undergoing. Recite every day – “Happy are those who are weeping because the kingdom of God is for them.”

What’s wrong with this picture?

I’ll tell you what’s wrong with this picture: assumption.

This picture has gone viral as thousands of people deliver searing indictments of both smartphones and teens.

I’ve met a couple of teens. I’ve had a couple smartphones. Could these teens be playing Angry Birds or texting stupid jokes to each other? Yeah, they could.

But they could also be googling provenance for that painting or taking a second to text a friend about how amazing the museum is or completing an assignment given off-screen by someone standing just beside the photographer. They could be taking notes about the palette choice so that later they turn into a generation of artists that take your breath away.

What’s wrong with this picture? Nothing, until proven otherwise. Welcome to 2014.

They are actually using an app as part of their museum tour.

yeah seriously guys, so many galleries and museums have apps these days that are usually cheaper to use than renting an audio guide of some sort. and even some places like the louvre, give you a phone or even nintendo 3ds as an audio guide. THINGS ARE NEVER QUITE WHAT THEY SEEM. THE CAMERA WILL ALWAYS LIE TO YOU.
