“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”

Interesting.

also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope

image

the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him

but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high

and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair

what a badass

It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

That’s how many lives could be saved by lifting the ban on gay blood donors (via micdotcom)

Since 1977, the FDA has banned all men who have ever had sex with another man from ever donating blood. But in recent years, countries like the U.K. and Canada have lifted similar bans, recognizing the inherent and unfounded homophobic stereotypes of these laws. And based on the new research findings, it’s time for the U.S. to do the same.

reminder that

  • Javert committed suicide between the bridges of Pont Notre Dame and Pont au Change
  • which are smack bang in the middle between Notre Dame cathedral and the Palais de Justice
  • immediately after Valjean let him go free, unable to reconcile his internal conflict between what he always thought was right and this new experience of grace and forgiveness
  • literally caught between God and the Law

HUGO YOU PHILOSOPHICAL FRENCH FUCK
