THIS IS MARRIAGE!!
Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.
He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”
Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.
I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT
LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.
In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.
Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.
Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT.
Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.
FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.
^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.

Out of control coal fire in Australia
About a month ago, someone intentionally set a brushfire near the city of Morwell, in eastern Victoria, Australia. That city has been a center of coal mining in Australia for more than a century, with several major mines and companies in the area. The brush fire migrated until it hit part of the exposed coal seam, starting this conflagration.
Coal mine fires are nasty. You have all the ingredients for an absolute mess; if the mine has been worked, there is easily-flammable (practically explosive) coal dust everywhere, there is an air supply, and there is an enormous supply of fuel to burn. In some cases, the only way to put out the fire is to mine the coal ahead of where the fire is heading, cutting off its fuel supply.
This fire has been burning for about 4 weeks and it may take weeks, months, or even longer to get it under control. Firefighters are attacking the blaze but that is creating additional problems; spraying water onto loose rock can set of landslides, which could even make the fires worse. Authorities have recently ordered residents of the area who are elderly, pregnant, or at risk from breathing problems to evacuate the area due to pollution from the fire.
Fires like these do happen in coal mines, and sometimes they even cost the mine its entire output and more. A notable mine in Pennsylvania near the town of Centralia turned a town of 1,000 residents into a ghost town. A location in Australia known as Burning Mountain has burned continuously for ~6000 years.

So my sister’s teacher told her that movie writers purposefully make bad guys ugly so you want the protagonist to win
You forgot one…
