This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive.

Scan, share, give away your old text books. Do whatever you can to keep these greedy jerks from making their obscene profits at the expense of our ever-deepening debt.

VIVA LA PLUTO MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!

DO YOU SEE THIS? DO YOU? ALL OF YOU WHO HAD WRITTEN OFF PLUTO, WHO HAD CROSSED IT OFF YOUR PLANET LIST? REMEMBER HOW IT WAS ‘TOO SMALL” TO BE A PLANET? HOW NASA, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMICAL UNION REMOVED ITS PLANETARY STATUS AND  CHANGED ITS NAME TO 134340? HOW EVERYONE THEN CONSIDERED THERE TO BE EIGHT PLANETS, NOT NINE?

BUT SOME OF US REMAINED LOYAL TO PLUTO. IT WAS NEVER FORGOTTEN. AND NOW HERE WE ARE, AND JUSTICE IS UPON US AFTER 8 YEARS.

BECAUSE GUESS WHAT? PLUTO HAS AT LEAST FIVE MOONS, A PRETTY BIG NUMBER FOR A ”DWARF-PLANET”, HUH? ESPECIALLY WHEN EARTH, QUITE BIGGER THAN PLUTO AND AN OFFICIAL PLANET ONLY HAS ONE. AND GUESS WHAT ELSE? ERIS, THE PLANET WHICH EVERYONE THOUGHT TO BE BIGGER THAN PLUTO, MAY NOT BE BIGGER AFTER ALL. AND THE BEST PART IS THAT PLUTO HAS AN ATMOSHPERE. THAT’S RIGHT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, A SUPPOSEDLY NON-PLANET HAS AN ATMOSPHERE. AGAIN, ISN’T THAT IMPRESSIVE?

SO LOOK AT THIS. NEW FINDINGS, AND A NEW AGE FOR PLUTO. AN AGE OF RECOGNITION AND APPRECIATION. AND ALLOW ME TO CLOSE THIS -somewhat aggressive-PRESENTATION OF OPINION WITH THE MOTTO OF THE PLUTO APOLOGISTS: VIVA LA PLUTO!

Get “Viva la Pluto” to be a trending tag

The Pluto fandom doesn’t fuck around

I stayed loyal the the great pluto. Did you?

You know that moment when you google something and immediately regret it? Yeah me too. People can do what they want with their firearms but sweet damn.

I’m right there with you and…yea, it made me kinda really sad

The only problem with these are the painted wood stocks. Looks like crap no matter what

The surplus rifles I have a problem with, because that’s a piece of history they’re fucking up. everything else, it’s their gun they can do as they please.

Meh. I’ve seen worse.

The Lebel Mle. 1886 M93 R35,

Even up to the 1930’s the French Army had vast stores of Lebel rifles, an aging bolt action firearm which originated in 1886.  However the French did not merely want to sell or scrap the rifle, but put them to some use.  A common policy of the French Army in the 20th century was to hold on to weapons no made how old or obsolete they were.

In 1935 the French Army commissioned a program to shorten many older Lebel rifles in carbines for artillery units, rear echelon units, reserves, police, and colonial forces.  Conversion of the rifle to a carbine was simple, they merely shortened the barrel down to 18 inches and adjusted the length or the forward stock.  Of course this conversion came at a cost.  The Lebel did not have a box magazine but rather a tubular magazine.  Shortening it reduced its magazine capacity to only 3 rounds.  In addition, the R35 still used the aging 8mm Lebel cartridge (8x51R), even though the French Army had adopted the 7.5x54 French.  

The R35 Lebel saw limited used during World War II.  Around 50,000 conversions were produced.

Ukrainian soldier with a puppy 

No offense to the OP, but from the looks of the mismatched camo, civilian shoes, and the yellow tape, I’m gonna tell you this is probably an airsoft player. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Actually he’s likely to be a member of the Donbas Battalion, which explains the yellow tape as that is generally their visual cue. They have mismatched camo ‘cause they buy their own equipment.
