the Fuck-Annie question

Halberstam proceeds to out-Edelman Edelman on the Fuck-Annie question, summoning his readers:
“to embrace a truly political negativity, one that promises, this time, to fail, to make a mess, to fuck shit up, to be loud, unruly, impolite, to breed resentment, to bash back, to speak up and out, to disrupt, assassinate, shock, and annihilate” (Failure, 110).

eliminate anxiety

They are touted as miracle gadgets that can eliminate anxiety and even help people with autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
But now experts are claiming that fidget spinners – the new sell-out craze of the moment – are nothing more than a cheap toy.
The basic gadget has three prongs centred around a circle with bearings in the middle and is spun to whir hypnotically. A technique which marketers say helps to provide comfort in stressful situations and improve focus.


why dont you fags buy a fidget spinner and get a sharpie and write " politics" and spinn it all day cause thats all you dooooooooo

wind witch

According to legends witches were believed to be able to control the wind. One method was with the use of three knots tied into a rope, or sometimes into a handkerchief. When the three knots were tied in the proper magical way, the wind was bound up in them. Witches gave, or sometimes sold, these magic knots to sailors to help them experience safe voyages (see *Ligature). The release of one knot brought a gentle, southwesterly wind; two knots, a strong north wind; and three knots, a tempest. In the folklore of the Shetland Islands and Scandinavia, some fishermen were said to have commanded the wind this way. The belief in controlling the wind by tying it goes back to the legends of ancient Greece; Odysseus received a bag of wind from Aeolus to help him on his journey.

*Ligature is a magical working by tying in a string, thread, or cord one to three knots, usually. Traditionally, for obvious reasons, it is used in binding spells. In ancient Greek times as well as in more recent English times knots were used by sorcerers and sea witches to harness winds and give sailors fair weather for sailing. In many Wiccan traditions knots are tied in the ritual cord belt of the initiation candidate. The number of knots, one, two or three, in the belt signifies the degree of initiation, first, second or third, which the person is receiving. The knots also magically bind the initiate in place and prevent his/her energies from being dispersed

cloth-boat


http://www.packrafting.de/2010/

It was only 20 years after the innovation of waterproof fabrics by applying solvent rubber to cotton (Charles Macintosh, 1823, [5]) that Halkett introduced his 'Cloth-Boat'. 'Cloth' resembled both, it was the first inflatable watercraft at all, thus fully made of 'cloth'. But it was also indeed a piece of clothing, as it could be worn as a cloak.

The Winterslow Hut, Bronze Age, 1500 - 1150BC
Reverend Allan Borman Hutchins, the Curate of Grately, excavated a large bell barrow near The Old Pheasant Inn at Winterslow in 1814. Within the barrow he found at least three burials. The oldest was a male buried with a beaker pot. The middle burial was a cremation accompanied by a biconical urn. The final burial was also a cremation contained in an urn along with a bronze razor and a quanitity of hair. The hair has been reanalysed and is now thought to be sheep wool rather than human hair. One of the burials contained a number of amber beads, probably from a necklace. The smaller urn is in the ‘Trevisker’ style distinctive to south west Britain and is named after a site in Cornwall where it was first recognised.


The Winterslow Hut was an inn, now known as the Pheasant Inn. It was a famous coaching inn where William Hazlitt once resided and wrote his Winterslow Essays and which, at different times, was visited by Charles and Mary Lamb and Rudyard Kipling.



 It was here that the Exeter mail coach was attacked by a lioness in 1816. The lioness was part of a menagerie on its way to Salisbury Fair and severely mauled one of the horses plus a large Newfoundland dog before being recap-tured. The coach passengers with great presence of mind locked themselves inside the inn while the keepers recaptured the lioness from under a granary. Several of the inns on the turnpike and coaching roads in southern Wiltshire were 'Huts'. There was a Cribbage Hut at Sutton Mandeville, which must have been named from the card game that was played there. The word 'Hut' may have derived from its meaning of a shelter for troops which seems to been in use from the mid 16th century. The inn provided shelter to travellers for the night and may have begun life as a wooden hut.


A Bronze Age round barrow cemetery situated to the northwest of 'The Pheasant Hotel'. The cemetery comprises at least 13 round barrows, mainly bowl barrows visible as earthworks and cropmarks. Nine of the barrows were identified by Grinsell (1957) and designated as Winterslow 4-12. Five were visible as earthworks and four recorded as levelled earthworks. Two additional barrow sites were also recorded by Grinsell (undated) and another by Stephens and Stone (1939). Aerial photographs also show many circular cropmarks, interpreted as barrow sites within the vicinity of the cemetery. Ordnance Survey field investigations in October 1970 identified four of the barrows as definite earthworks and two as slight earthworks. None of the other barrow sites could be determined. The site of one other barrow site was recorded, it was visible as a very slight earthwork. Nine of the barrows have been scheduled. Two bowl barrows survive as substantial earthworks - one is 23 metres in diameter with a maximum height of 0.8 metres. The other has a diameter of 15 metres and maximum height of 1.2 metres. Both have traces of the barrow ditch visible. Three other barrows survive as slight earthworks ranging from 20 metres to 30 metres in diameter. The sites of three more barrows are visible on aerial photographs.



antibody time

In immunology, seroconversion is the time period during which a specific antibody develops and becomes detectable in the blood. After seroconversion has occurred, the disease can be detected in blood tests for the antibody. During an infection or immunization, antigens enter the blood, and the immune system begins to produce antibodies in response. Before seroconversion, the antigen itself may or may not be detectable, but the antibody is, by definition, absent. During seroconversion, the antibody is present but not yet detectable. Any time after seroconversion, the antibodies can be detected in the blood, indicating a prior or current infection.

Victor Alexander Sederbach

1755-56
27 figures  were commissioned in 1755 by John Ivory Talbot to decorate the interior of his newly built Gothick Great Hall. The figures were made and fired in the grounds of Lacock by Austrian sculptor Victor Alexander Sederbach.




Pevsner // On these brackets and in these niches stands the extraordinary statuary of Victor Alexander Sederbach, a pleasant, modest man and a cheap sculptor. Beyond that we know absolutely nothing about him. His Christian names sound North-East German, his surname South German or Austrian, and the statues in Austrian abbeys are indeed perhaps the nearest comparison to these wild, violent, and unrefined mid-C18 pieces. They are made of terracotta, and it has been suggested that Sederbach was perhaps a Hafner, i.e. stove-maker, and not a sculptor.  (The Buildings of England: Wiltshire)


The Foreigner who has been here ever since May has executed his Performance in a very Workmanlike manner and your Niches are filled by a set of Inhabitants worthy such Repositories. I presume you are acquainted with the method of making Models for Statues. He proceeds on the same principles, only Bakes them afterwards, by which means they become of a Red Colour and ring like a Garden Pot … I fancy Lord Shelburn will employ him on his arrival at London, where he goes next week; however, as so many of your friends are Connoisseurs, I would advise them seeing his Performances, which are both Easy and not Expensive. His name is sonorous, no less than Victor Alexander Sederbach and yet lodges at one King’s a grocer in Green Street, near Castle Street, Leicester Fields. I am sorry he did not show all his Performances to the Gentleman you sent a note by, but on asking the Reason, was told that someone the day before had Broke a Figure, which made him extremely Captious...
