rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

People are actually blaming the majority of the No voters or the No campaign (and the English for some reason) for the work of a dozen drunken idiots in Glasgow. Suddenly every no voter is a fascist.

Do you know what fascism is?

Do you know how dangerous this logic this?

As though fanaticism…

Cruelly ravaged by the invasion of the Others more than any other part of Westeros, the North was also fighting starvation and a greyscale outbreak by the time the sun rose again. Some whispered of the strange powers he had, and spoke of how he learned dark arts Beyond the Wall. If the young king was troubled by these rumours, he did not show it.
