PASSWORD:  STARSHIPS

One of the best fanvids I’ve ever seen.

And when she says ‘one of the best […] EVER’ (emphasis mine), lemme tell ya: it’s really, really true.

hey

hey you there

following me

stop

stop what you’re doing

and watch

oh my god

my life

my entire fucking life

someone understands

Always reblog. Because reasons.

Love it. I needed this today. :)

This is my life. All of it. This is what I’m made of. 

Now let’s blow this thing and go home.

Hands down, one of the best compilations of that sheer exploratory joy and skill that inhabits so much of the best science-fiction (and science-fact). Don’t hesitate, just hit full screen, and punch it.

It could be argued that the very first analysis of the origins of the First World War was the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum presented to the Serbian government at 5 p.m. on 23 July 1914. Even before the conflict began, participants were busy constructing their own narratives of international history in the early twentieth century.
William Mulligan, in his article “The Trial Continues: New Directions in the Study of the Origins of the First World War,” published in the The English Historical Review. (via oupacademic)
