The woman who made your Wifi working.

Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian-born American actress. Max Reinhardt called her the “most beautiful woman in Europe” due to her “strikingly dark exotic looks”.

Mathematically talented, Lamarr came up with an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.

OMG I read a BUST article on this woman like a year ago. She was SO COOL. She was like, “Damnit, no one in the government will hire me to invent shit. FINE. I WILL MARRY FELLOW INVENTOR WITH GOVERNMENT CONNECTIONS AND DO MY OWN RESEARCH. Oh shit. How am I going to pay for my own research? What can I do that doesn’t take up too much of my time and pays me lots of money? OH, I GUESS I’LL JUST BE A FAMOUS ACTRESS. IF I HAVE TO BE.”

guys i found this on the wiki page

According to Anne Hathaway, the Catwoman portrayal in 2012’s film the Dark Knight Rises is based on Hedy Lamarr.

I guess i found the topic for my next english presentation

Um, wow. Found my new hero. And here I’d only heard about her in the context of her acting. That is not okay.

Anonymous said: Hello, I've been browsing your previously answered questions regarding dialogue in search for advice pertaining to how to write dialogue that shows accents in speech patterns, but I haven't found much. Do you have more advice or resources on how to write accents? I'm particularly interested in how to write a British or Welsh accent, but any advice on writing accents would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance!

fuckyeahcharacterdevelopment:

Well, British accents don’t exist first of all, so that’s my first piece of advice to you.

Other than that, I would highly recommend looking at accent challenges on YouTube to hear a variety of English and Welsh accents. I Google searched ‘tumblr accent challenge welsh’ and a whole bunch of videos popped up. You could do the same for the English part. Hearing them for yourself is the best course of action to take, imo.

Otherwise, links because there is already a lot out there on accents and I don’t think I could make any useful contribution to it all.

Anonymous said: I've bought about 8 notebooks (I adore notebooks omg.) But I don't know what to write in them!!!! What do people normally put in them. I don't think I can keep a diary, they always fail for me. Suggestions?:)))

Ooooh, I LOVE this question!

Lots of people keep journals with systematic diary entries, but I understand that it doesn’t work for everyone.

Here are some cool/interesting/fun/motivational/productive things you can do that don’t necessarily include keeping a diary:

Does that give you enough ideas to start with? :)

 “Pooh and his friends were given as gifts by author A. A. Milne to his son Christopher Robin Milne between 1920 and 1922. Pooh was purchased in London at Harrods for Christopher’s first birthday. Christopher later gave them to publisher E. P. Dutton, who in turn donated them to the New York Public Library.”


Oh my god. Oh my god.

This is them, guys. This is them. Got chills.
