his letters addressed to his wife make me horny
>James Joyce letter to his wife Nora, Dublin, 8 December 1909
>My sweet little whorish Nora I did as you told me, you dirty little girl, and pulled myself off twice when I read your letter. I am delighted to see that you do like being fucked arseways. Yes, now I can remember that night when I fucked you for so long backwards. It was the dirtiest fucking I ever gave you, darling. My prick was stuck in you for hours, fucking in and out under your upturned rump. I felt your fat sweaty buttocks under my belly and saw your flushed face and mad eyes. At every fuck I gave you your shameless tongue came bursting out through your lips and if a gave you a bigger stronger fuck than usual, fat dirty farts came spluttering out of your backside. You had an arse full of farts that night, darling, and I fucked them out of you, big fat fellows, long windy ones, quick little merry cracks and a lot of tiny little naughty farties ending in a long gush from your hole. It is wonderful to fuck a farting woman when every fuck drives one out of her. I think I would know Nora's fart anywhere. I think I could pick hers out in a roomful of farting women. It is a rather girlish noise not like the wet windy fart which I imagine fat wives have. It is sudden and dry and dirty like what a bold girl would let off in fun in a school dormitory at night.

When his wife told him that it was “shameful in front of their guests,” he replied “If the gold fork was good enough for former President James Buchanan, I think it is good enough for Tabby.”>Lincoln’s friend Caleb Carman recalled how the president would pick up one of the cats and “talk to it for half an hour at a time.” The cats apparently won the president over with their quiet adoration. The president doted on the cats, which he named Tabby and Dixie>At one point during his first term, Lincoln was said to have observed in frustration, “Dixie is smarter than my whole cabinet! And furthermore she doesn’t talk back!”

So this is man whose not that famous, but through him many breakthroughs in neuroscience and psychology were made and if your a psych major you'd heave definitely heard of him
Henry Molaison suffered from epilepsy and seizures due an bicycle accident at the age of seven, In 1957 he underwent an experimental and life threatening procedure where had his hippocampus and amygdala surgically removed with a Drill, after the surgery he was unable to form any new memories but was able to form short term memories, . He was however able to learn skills, and gain "muscle memory" in fact its because of him we even know muscle memory is even a thing
Now obviously the surgery done to him could never ever be replicated again, so Henry became the only Human being in the world without a hippocampus, for 60 years he was kept in a University lab where his brain was studied until he died peacefully at the age of 82 in 2008, his brain however was removed and dissected for further research purposes
I developed a Crush on Henry when I was doing my bachelors, after learning about so many old ugly men, Henry was a breath of fresh air and I felt for him so much, he was unwilling martyr for science and his sacrifice made the world a better place, I also fantasized about being a researcher and falling in love with him

His foster family, including his future wife Ellen, were devout Catholics, and Sherman was re-baptized and later married in the Catholic rite, Sherman wrote his wife Ellen Ewing in 1842 that "I believe in good works rather than faith."
>In his letters to Thomas, his eldest surviving son, General Sherman said "I don’t want you to be a soldier or a priest, but a good useful man", and complained that Thomas's mother Ellen "thinks religion is so important that everything else must give way to it." Thomas's decision to abandon his career as a lawyer in 1878 in order to join the Jesuits and prepare for the Catholic priesthood caused General Sherman profound distress, and he referred to it as a "great calamity". Father and son, however, were reconciled when Thomas returned to the United States in August 1880, after having travelled to England for his religious instruction

I love her but a lot of libfems use her for their own irrational propaganda purposes, about how women should be sent to front line with scrotes
The thing is, the reason her and so many other women were allowed in the front lines was cause the able bodied young men were dead, children, old men and women were fighting cause they were scrapping the bottom of the barrel
There's a another similar story about a Russia man who lost every one of his son's in WW2 and then the old man himself was conscripted and how he fought and died bravely but like fuck, his entire family died and Stalin was partially to blame cause he executed so many former officer's that had experience

That fucking sucks. Nobody should be sent to war unless they want to kill and get killed. It makes zero sense for women to get conscripted. Correct me if I'm wrong, but most western/European countries allow women to serve if they want to? Why force it on unwilling ones, who are also physically weaker than scrotes?

If Hitler had died there then Rudolf Hess would have taken power, up until 1941 he was the designated Vice Fuhrer and would have succeed Hitler if he ever died of left office, unlike Hitler and the rest of the Inner Nazi party he didn't hold a fanatical hatred of Britain, he even tried to end the war on his own, if he taken power he would negotiated peace with the British, (something brits had offered even after the fall of France) so Nazi Germany would survive a lot longer then it did and there would be a lot more dead Jews
He was also the only decent looking member of the Upper Nazi party
also he considered Native Americans, Indians, Central Asians to be fellow Aryans, but hated Arabs and Jews and believed in a great war against the whole "Semitic race" who he blamed for all the problems in the entire world
He was literally insane to the point other Nazis considered him too batshit to hang out with. Even fucking Himmler, who larped as trv nordic pagan and thought himself to be the reincarnation of Heinrich der Vogler.
Still wonder why Hess killed himself so late on life, though. The only reason he wasn't released was because Soviets didn't want to lose their foothold on West Berlin that was Spandau prison.

and countless other men throughout civil rights history were degenerates. But it wasn't exclusive to them. Many men who are remembered as "progressive or important" id awful things to the people around them and it's never addressed. There is no such thing as a decent man or a good man.

This remembers me of Admiral Zinovy Rozhestvensky, the man who got assigned to command the baltic fleet to protect the russian naval base of port Arthur during the russo-japanese war. The whole mission was an absolute disaster and I recommend any history interested anons to read into the adventures of the baltic fleet as it’s lore is rich and absolutely hilarious, albeit tragic. Anyway, his great misfortune and how he dealt with it(and the fact that he was quite handsome, sadly he’s already balding in the only pictures which exist of him) somehow made me thirst a bit for the guy. >gets assigned by the Czar personally to command the baltic fleet as russia’s running out of experienced admirals, known to be a good commander but also to take his job a bit too seriously and having some anger issues (he liked to throw his binoculars into the sea when angry and was known to react furiously towards undisciplined subordinates, but apparently was liked and respected by his men overall)>The whole fleet is inexperienced af, he tries to get some discipline into the people but it’s hard due to the shit circumstances (the Baltic Fleet was poorly suited for its mission, most of the crew were conscripted peasants who had never seen a boat before)>they’re starting from the baltic sea, because of geopolitical reasons russia had limited access to the suez canal so they mostly had to travel all around africa to reach japan, which takes like a whole fucking year>ships in his fleet have constant paranoia of japanese torpedo boats, randomly fire projectiles at fisherboats or foreign trade vessels, causing severe diplomatic issues at one occasion which causes him to get rid of some officers he deemed unfit for the job>one of those officers was put in charge of organizing reinforcements for the Baltic fleet after he returned to russia, and he was still pissed at Rozhestvensky for being dismissed, so he deliberately pulled together the worst vessels he could find>He knew about that and tried to avoid them, but these were the ships sent to reinforce him so there wasn’t much he could do>still no discipline on most parts of the fleet>he’s getting increasingly pissed, his crew orders him an extra box of binoculars because he had thrown too many over board for stress relief>the crews begin to go mad from the heat and from the filth of the coal they had to store onboard because they couldn’t refuel on land, with several men committing suicide or having to be confined to quarters>during their malaria-ridden stay at madagascar, one officer had accidentally purchased several thousand opium-laced cigarettes and passed them around the fleet, which were already in poor discipline and chaos because of many deaths and diseases as well as exotic animals the men brought on board (one officer was bitten by a snake)>He became sick, but recovered after being bed-ridden for a while>At some point he desperately asked the Czar to let him go since he didn’t want to do this anymore, but the Czar declined>After many more such adventures, they finally reached the passage of Tsushima where they had a devastating battle with the japanese fleet. Rozhestvensky was rescued after receiving a wound to the head and becoming unconscious (before that he lost his shit and was still firing, refusing to leave his sinking, burning ship while all of his crewmates were already dead), was brought to a japanese hospital and recovered>when he got back to russia he faced court for the disaster and pleaded guilty, taking the full responsibility for everything, expecting the worst which would be execution but got pardoned by the Czar and died later of a heart attack after living his last years as a recluse in St. Petersburg

>>153637>Anne de Gaulle was the youngest daughter of General Charles de Gaulle. She was born in Trier, Germany, where her father was stationed with the Army of Occupation in the Rhineland. She was born with Down Syndrome and in a time where disabled children were sent to institutions, she lived with her family until her death.>There was one sacred rule in the de Gaulle household: Anne was never to be made to feel different or less than anyone else. Charles de Gaulle was noted for his reserve and even with family members he was usually not very demonstrative. Not so with his daughter Anne, who received a warmth that he had seemed to be storing for his entire life just for her. He would entertain her with songs, dances, and pantomimes, he would often act as a child himself to bring her joy. One Colombey resident recalled how he used to walk with her hand-in-hand around the property, caressing her and talking quietly about the things she understood. She was, he said simply, “My joy. She helped me overcome the failures in all men, and to look beyond them.”>In 1948, Anne succumbed to pneumonia, a month after her 20th birthday and died in her father's arms. Upon her death, weeping, her father said: "Now, she's like the others.">On 22 August 1962, Charles de Gaulle was the victim of an attempted assassination at Petit-Clamart. He later said that the potentially fatal bullet had been stopped by the frame of the photograph of Anne that he always carried with him, placed this particular day on the rear shelf of his car. When he died in 1970, he was buried in the cemetery of Colombey beside his beloved daughter.
