TIL King Edward VII was too fat to fully button his suit jacket. In order to not offend the king, everyone else followed suit. A trend was born…


This happens all the darned time. His wife, Queen Alexandra, had a scar on her neck, so she wore choker necklaces and high-necked blouses… and so did everyone else.

Louis XIII and Louis XIV started wearing wigs because they were going bald… and so did everyone else. 

Basically all of fashion history is that scene in Princess Diaries where Mia gets brain freeze so everyone tries to get brain freeze.

Louis XIV also had a terrible anal fistula in 1686 and his surgeon designed a special instrument for surgically removing it without Louis dying, so then anal fistulas became all the rage at the French court and 1686 was called “the year of the fistula” and I wish this was fake



Hey guys!

A follow has anonymously messaged me asking me to help them ensure they won’t be homeless. They’re being ostracized by judgemental pro life family members, something no one deserves.

If you have the ability, please donate. If you can’t, a reblog would be amazing. Thank you.

They’ve currently sold all they could to raise 300 dollars, out of the 900 they need to move in. Every dollar counts. Every dollar brings them closer to a safe warm home. Every reblog matters.

Trump Fans Sink Savings Into ‘Iraqi Dinar’ Scam


Trump supporter Hayes Kotseos runs a North Carolina pool-maintenance company, but she’s got a side bet that she thinks might make her fabulously wealthy: the Iraqi dinar.

The currency is nearly worthless outside of Iraq, but Kotseos bought millions of dinars in April, after watching a video of President Trump at a 2017 press conference. In the clip, Trump says, with characteristic vagueness, that all currencies will soon “be on a level playing field.”

In reality, Trump was talking about trade imbalances with China. But like other Trump supporters who have fallen into the dinar investment scam, which has existed since at least 2012, Kotseos interpreted Trump’s rambling statement as proof that the Iraqi dinar would soon be worth as much or even more than the dollar, making anyone who had been smart enough to buy in early a millionaire.

“I love my president, and I was like, ‘Oh my God,’” Kotseos told The Daily Beast.

The purchase, Kotseos said, cost her and her husband somewhere between $5,000 and $10,000, counting the cut to the company that sold them the dinars. Two of her adult children have bought millions more dinars, too.
