The Women of Egypt Chocked the World: In Egypt, the genders were basically equal, and because the salary was the same, many women worked to better their family economy

When the ancient greek historian Herodot visited Egypt in 400 B.C., he nearly choked on his wine: “the people here are turning human traditions upside down. The women here go to markets and do business, while the men are home weaving”. To Herodot, it was pure madness. Greek women in his time had no rights and weren’t even considered to be independent individuals. They were at all time to obey the man of the house, and could not leave the special ‘women-room’ without the permission of their husband. Very different was it in Egypt, where women in centuries had enjoyed basically the same rights as men. The reason of the equality in Egypt was their believe in that the universe, in the dawn of time, was born to couples between different male and female Gods. The universe was therefore equally the property of women and men. To keep the universal equality, according to the Egypts, it was crucial that there was balance between the Gods and the humans - and between the two genders. They believed that the goddess Maat looked upon the humans and made sure that there was equal justice and truth. The religious beliefs were also a part of the laws of Egypt, where women were secured a high level of equality. Men and woman got the same punishments for the same crimes. Property was heired down through the women’s line, and women could manage their own land, animals and houses. Especially along the poor, it was crucial that the women - besides having to clean the house - also took a job outside the home, to help the economy of the family. Marriage didn’t mean that an egyptian womans freedom dissapeared. She could keep her property and even loan out money: a text describes how women with a sense for economy loaned three lupms of silver to her husband with a yearly rent of an impressive 30%. The woman could also file for divorce if her husband proved to be useless, and remarry - though at time with compensation. In a marriage contract from 340 B.C., a woman writes to her husband: “If I turn you down as a husband, because I do not want you anymore and want another - then I have to give you 22 grams of silver and dismiss a third of our joined property”. Both the greeks and the romans were known to often give their newborn girls to wild animals, because they were seen as a burden. Boys, on the other hand, could give the family wealth and prestige. In Egypt, that was unthinkable. Here, the girls could work and earn money for the family. An old ancient egyptian advice thus went: “you shall treat your childen equally. You never know which one will treat you nice”.

If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you

l tried really hard not to reblog this

Yeah, it is indeed really hard not to reblog a fucking thing.

Can we all agree that the man in the first gif is the manliest man in the world?

Are we just going to all silently acknowledge that the last guy is clearly dead and that we just saw him die. 

HOLD UP FOR A SECOND

ALL OF THESE GIFS ARE ONE MAN

THE SINGULAR BUSTER KEATON

WHILE FILMING THE GENERAL

HE SNAPPED HIS NECK ON THE RAILROAD TIES AND WENT HOME AND ICED HIS BODY

AND CAME BACK FOR WORK THE NEXT DAY

HE ONCE GOT HIS HIP RIPPED OUT OF ITS SOCKET BY A MALFUNCTIONING ELEVATOR AND WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH HIMSELF FOR BEING INJURED

HE ONCE HAD TO FALL 100 FEET DOWN A WATERFALL INTO A NET

A STUNTMAN TESTED IT AND BROKE BOTH LEGS AND DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER

BUSTER DID THE STUNT ANYWAY AND LANDED WITHOUT A SCRATCH

IN ‘THE HIGH DIVE’

BUSTER DID A TRICK DIVE THROUGH A CARDBOARD DECK THAT WAS CAMOUFLAGED TO LOOK LIKE THE REAL DECK

ONLY HE COULDN’T TELL FROM 100 FEET UP WHERE THE CARDBOARD STOPPED AND THE REAL DECK STARTED AND THERE WAS ONLY LIKE A THREE FOOT MARGIN FOR ERROR

AND WHEN HE HESITATED A SUDDEN BREEZE LITERALLY KNOCKED HIM OFF THE DIVING BOARD AND HE HAD TO JUMP ANYWAY

AND HE MISSED THE REAL DECK BY LESS THAN A FOOT BUT HE MADE IT

IN THE SECOND GIF HE’S RECREATING SOMETHING THAT THE ACTUAL GENERAL PURSUERS HAD TO DO IN THE CIVIL WAR

IF HE MISSES THAT TIE

THE TRAIN WILL BE DERAILED AND HE WILL DIE IN THE EXPLOSION

IN THE THIRD GIF AN ENTIRE HOUSE IS FALLING HE HAS ONE TAKE AND IF HE HAS NOT DONE THE CALCULATIONS CORRECTLY HE WILL BE CRUSHED

HE HAS AN INCH-WIDE MARGIN ON EACH SIDE

AND THE HOUSE LITERALLY BRUSHES HIS LEFT SHOULDER ON THE WAY DOWN

YOU CAN SEE HIS LEFT ARM JUMP BECAUSE HE’S FLINCHING FROM THE PAIN

THAT LAST GIF

HE WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THAT JUMP

HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL AND THEY HADNT PLANNED FOR IT

BUT HE SURVIVED

BUSTER KEATON SURVIVED 100% OF THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE KILLED LESSER MEN INCLUDING WWI, TORNADOS, HOUSEFIRES, ALCOHOLISM, BROKEN NETS, CRUSHING DEPRESSION, THE DEPRESSION ITSELF, THE MCCARTHY WITCHHUNTS, THE END OF SILENT CINEMA, AND ABOUT 900 MORE OF THE STUNTS YOU SEE ABOVE

BUSTER LIVED TO BE 70 YEARS OLD

FATHERED LIKE FOUR KIDS AND EIGHT GRANDKIDS

HE CAME OUT THE OTHER SIDE OF ALL THAT

THINKING THAT LIFE WAS GOOD AND PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL

BUSTER KEATON IS NOT JUST A STUNTMAN

HE IS A GODDAMN SAINT

BUSTER KEATON’S PARENTS WERE PART OF A TRAVELING SHOW.

THEY WERE ACROBATS.

THEY TOOK BABY BUSTER UP HIGH IN THE AIR WITH THEM.

THEY DROPPED HIM.

LUCKILY SOMEONE WHO WAS STANDING UNDER THEM CAUGHT BABY BUSTER.

THAT MAN WAS HARRY HOUDINI. 

HARRY HOUDINI SAVED BUSTER KEATON’S LIFE.

if you don’t think that’s the coolest shit you can get right out.
