Sarla Thakral was first Indian woman to fly. Born in 1914, she earned an aviation pilot license in 1936 at the age of 21. After obtaining the initial license, she completed one thousand hours of flying. While she was working towards a commercial pilot license, World War II broke out and civil training was suspended. Later, her husband, the first Indian to earn an airmail pilot’s license, died in a crash. She abandoned her plans to become a commercial pilot and joined the Mayo School of Art in Lahore, where she trained in the Bengal school of painting and obtained a diploma in fine arts. (Wiki)
Peggy’s Heroines of History 1: Nachthexen (“Nightwitches”). I have heard criticism that Peggy Carter as a character is “unrealistic” given the time period. This is a blog series dedicated to arguing against such criticisms. In fact there were many women who made a difference in WWII despite the sexism and oppression of the time. One of these groups of women were the female Soviet pilots known as the Nightwitches.
These young Russian women in their teens and early 20’s - the same age as many tumblr users - flew unarmed, wooden biplanes on stealth missions into enemy territory. They would plot their course, then cut the engine (!!), glide in silently, drop their bombs, and then high tail it out of there through a wall of enemy fire. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. IN THE FREEZING COLD. IN OPEN COCKPITS. WHILE THE NAZIS WERE SHOOTING AT THEM. No heat, no guns, no radios, no parachutes. Just a map, a compass, and a hell of a set of ovaries.
Really? No women like Peggy existed during WWII? History tells another story. (source: seize the sky)
A history of asthma rescue medicine (note: those rescue inhalers we all know and love? Only slightly older than Peter Capaldi.) Seriously, guys: assume every fucking medical thing we take for granted did not yet exist, and if you think it might have, Doctors Bing and Google…

Deathigner - short film
..In which the children of the gods of Death attend reaper-school.
Look at this ADORABLE short film.
WATCH THIS. This is so fucking cute that I started to cry
god, this is so sweet. And I really loved how they had different death gods too, even more than the 3 we focused on. All the different cultural Deaths
That was the cutest ting EVER
So I think Bucky deserves to come out the other and and be happy again. So here’s a happy Bucky :-) Well, almost happy… he’s gettin’ there. Had a bit of a haircut too.
To put it in the words of the trolls from Frozen, which I watched the other day ‘he’s just a bit of a fixer upper - his isolation is confirmation of his desperation for healing hugs!’
Well, both films have a winter them, don’t they ;-)
Happy go Bucky

(grin) Because here we are, contumaciously posting and reblogging while over 30. (Or 20. Or 15.)
Reblog, if you like, and display with pride.
ETA: Here’s another version of the graphic for those who prefer something a little subtler.
Reblogging because I am, indeed, an old fart on Tumblr and we need to find each other!
Yeah, this is me…
Yep. WELL over 30.
over 30 represent!
