Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.

Aiya Van Kooten everyone
When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.
“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.
This is the best story of my life
“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!!
Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!
This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.
but tell me again about how muslim women who cover can’t possibly be strong or empowered.
I can’t remember if I’ve reblogged this before and I don’t really care.
Astonishing bravery of boy who risked his life to save baby deer in Bangladesh river by holding it above raging floodwaters
- Boy called Belal defiantly held the young fawn in one hand above his head
- Onlookers were unsure whether the boy was going to appear again
- When he made it to the other side the locals cheered
- Teenager jumped into river in Noakhali, Bangladesh to save animal
A brave boy fearlessly risked his own life and showed astonishing bravery to save a helpless baby deer from drowning.
The boy, called Belal and believed to be in his early teens, defiantly held the young fawn in one hand above his head as he plunged through the surging river.
During the ordeal onlookers were unsure whether the boy was going to appear again.
When he finally made it to the other side the locals cheered as the deer was reunited with its family.
The incident took place in Noakhali, Bangladesh, when the young fawn became separated from its family during torrential rain and fast-rising floods.
Wildlife photographer Hasibul Wahab captured the brave act while visiting on a photography trip.
He said the Noakhali locals lose a lot of deer during the rainy season and that they have to do all they can to protect them.
He said: ‘He was such a brave boy - the river was so full of water and it was high tide so we thought he might drown.
'My friend was even ready to jump into the river to save the boy. But he made it, and when he returned, we thanked the boy.
'There were only five to seven people observe this situation but it was a phenomenal sight.'

Teriffic skit from Monty Python!

Interesting, this shows the probably of a child’s eye color based on the eye color of its parents!
For more obscure eye colors….
About 2% of the world has Green eyes.
Amber is a bit more rare, having a yellow-gold tint, with copper/russet undertones. (Sunlight through a glass of whiskey, you know who I’m talking about) (Actually, he has Hazel eyes, but occasionally gets terrific lighting that makes it look amber) Light brown eyes are often mistaken for Amber, but there is a difference - The yellow and orange is far more distinct in Amber eyes.
Violet/Purple eyes are the third rarest. Having Occular Albinism is far more common than full Albinism.
It actually results in super pale blue eyes, but the red blood in their iris will often show through, resulting in a pale purple tone.
It comes with a host of eye-related disorders and sensitivities. (Mostly because there is no pigmentation in the iris, therefore your pupil dilating or shrinking has very little effect on how much light actually enters the eye - Eye damage occurs very easily, and the optic nerve has a harder time developing)
Black eyes are second-most rare, occurring from a Super-melanistic genetic trait similar to Albinism, but on the opposite scale. Many people say that true black eyes do not exist. They argue that black eye color is rather very dark brown color, so dark that it appears black.
Full Albinism resulting in red eyes is the most rare.
Just curious, what about grey eyes? Because one of my friends has grey eyes and I’m not kidding in the slightest.
Gray eyes are the same as blue, genetically speaking.
One theory is that in gray eyes, there are larger deposits of collagen in the stroma, resulting in Mie scattering rather than Rayleigh scattering (which is basically the difference between seeing a blue sky and a gray sky, for an analogy).
The other explanation is that there might be different concentrations of melanin at the front of the stroma.
thank you science side
