WORDS ARE WIND
My life's one big book, you're lucky I record some of those moments in photo, audio and literature.

Larry Henares on the reconciliation of Aguinaldo and Quezon —although his account is a year off, since the reconciliation was publicized when June 12, 1941 was celebrated as Flag Day, which means this account took place in 1940, as stated in Maramba’s biography. Henares’ account:

On July 21, from 1938 to 1941 – it became a habit of President Quezon to drop in at the house on Inocencio Street at about 10:00 A.M. to greet Don Daniel on his birthday. The President would ask, “What would you like for a birthday present?” 
     At that time, it so happened that a few days before his birthday, the family of a convicted criminal who was being considered for parole approached Don Daniel for help. It seemed that due to technicalities and some difficulties, the parole, which was before the Parole Board, was held pending. Don Daniel had felt rather helpless and he had been forced to tell the family that there was nothing he could do but that he would try his best to help them. When President Quezon asked him what he would like for a birthday present, it seemed like a heaven-sent answer to the problem. 
     “How about pardoning so and so? Don Daniel asked and explained the case to the President. Quezon called to his aide, Col. Nieto, ordered him to call up the Bureau of Prisons to secure the immediate pardon of the man concerned. 
     This became a sort of birthday ritual between the President and Don Daniel. At one time, after he had told the President what birthday present he would like, the President jokingly asked him, “Why don’t you ask something for yourself? Everytime you ask for a birthday present it is always for the benefit of others … for the people of the party.” 
     “If I did,” was Don Daniel’s smiling reply, “then I will never get anything after that.” 
     On his birthday in 1940, President Quezon mentioned about Don Daniel being groomed for Senator. Speaker Jose Yulo was with President Quezon on this particular occasion. Don Daniel dismissed the idea saying that he preferred to run for Congress again rather than be a Senator because he felt that as an independent-minded person, he would have more freedom as a Congressman than as a Senator. He believed that a Senator was more subject to the dictates of the party. President Quezon countered that as a Senator, Don Daniel would be better able and more in the position to maintain his independence. 
     Don Daniel celebrated his birthday in 1941 with a big “fiesta” to which nearly all the prominent people in the government and city were invited. As usual, the guests were headed by President Quezon. Quintin Paredes and Jose Yulo were also present, but what made it a memorable event was the meeting between Quezon and Aguinaldo. These two men who were great figures, in their own right – one belonging to the present as the country’s foremost leader and the other, to the past revolutionary days – had not been on speaking terms since 1935. In that year at a convention of Philippine Revolutionary Veterans, there had been some question regarding Quezon’s right to be a member and Daniel Maramba had defended Quezon. Aguinaldo – for reasons of his own – maintained that Quezon could not be considered a veteran and got angry with Don Daniel. To make matters worse, in 1935 during the elections for the first President of the Philippine Commonwealth, Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, relying on his former leadership, ran for that post against Quezon. He was of course roundly defeated, and this did not in any way make him like Quezon more. 
     General Aguinaldo arrived at the house on Inocencio Street about 12:00 noon when the festivities were already in full swing. Thirty minutes later, President Quezon arrived and these two men, being both civilized, had to greet each other like gentleman. This led to their reconciliation with Don Daniel as their bridge. 
Well that escalated quickly, “King of the North” chants, his proclamation as king, and his last ride as king.

Death of Catelyn Tully-Stark

It hurts so much, she thought. Our children, Ned, all our sweet babes. Rickon, Bran, Arya, Sansa, Robb… Robb… please, Ned, please, make it stop, make it stop hurting… the white tears and the red ones ran together until her face was torn and tattered, the face that Ned had loved. Catelyn Stark raised her hands and watched the blood run down her long fingers, over her wrists, beneath the sleeves of her gown. Slow red worms crawled along her arms and under her clothes. It tickles. That made her laugh until she screamed. “Mad,” someone said, “she’s lost her wits,” and someone else said, “Make an end,” and a hand grabbed her scalp just as she’d done with Jinglebell, and she thought, No, don’t, don’t cut my hair, Ned loves my hair. Then the steel was at her throat, and its bite was red and cold.

This isn’t Photoshopped of the Day: Miss Korea 2013 Contestants
Are your eyes being racist? Or do these women actually look eerily similar? This surreal GIF compilation showing all of 20 contestants for this year’s Miss Korea beauty pageant has gone viral on Reddit, mostly for their remarkably similar facial features. Now, before you start blaming own your eyes for being racist, this perceived resemblance among the contestants were also echoed by several ex-pats and natives living in the country, leading to a lengthy debate over the ever-growing trend of cosmetic surgeries and the westernization of beauty as a concept in the region.

i watched this on the news, it was in melbourne in 2009, it’s about a lady that was waiting for the train, and she had her baby in a pram, and as the train was coming the pram rolled onto the tracks, the lady closest to the edge is the mother, she tried to grab the pram but it feel onto the track, amazingly the baby survived with literally only a scratch on the forehead because it was still strapped securley into the pram, people say that the dark shadow over the pram is some kinda of guardian angel that kept the baby alive

IT’S 4 IN THE MORNING AND I AM SO CREEPED OUT BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER SEEN THAT BLACK SHADOW BEFORE OMFG

I remember hearing about this but not about the black shadow. o.o’ 

I always screw everything up… idiot.
