"Life-Preserving Coffin, In Doubtful Cases of Actual Death"

Drawing for a Life-Preserving Coffin, 11/15/1843

The fear of being buried alive led Christian Henry Eisenbrandt to patent a “life-preserving coffin in doubtful cases of actual death.” In his application, he claimed that through a series of springs and levers, even the slightest motion of the head or hand would instantaneously open the coffin lid.

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

Ghandi said that during the Holocaust Jewish people should have committed mass suicide to ‘shame’ Nazis
Ghandi slept naked with multiple young girls to ‘test’ his purity while rejecting his wife because he thought she was repulsive
Speaking of Ghandi’s wife, he killed her by forbidding her taking life saving penicillin because “they had to rely on god to heal them”, but was fine with taking medication to save his own ass.
Ghandi is a hypocrite and you’re all pieces of dog shit. - Rachel

Gandhi also believed, to quote him: “that it is physically impossible to violate a woman against her will. The outrage takes place only when she gives way to fear or does not realize her moral strength. If she cannot meet the assailant’s physical might, her purity will give her the strength to die before he succeeds in violating her…” (sounds sorta like “women’s bodies have a way of shutting that whole thing down…” only, you know, via death)
Oh, and Gandhi believed Indian women who were raped lost their value as human beings and that honour killings for sexually assaulted women were ok.
So fuck off with any idea that Gandhi was a great guy & we should listen to him about fucking anything.
