trauma in Doctor Who 

@applebaps@anarchism.space @007 The way I see it, Tennant's interactions with his companions, and characters in general, are entirely informed by his love for Rose, and his attempts to cope with losing her and relearning how to function in society after loss. He fell in love with her as Eccleston, and Eccleston's Doctor is sooo integral. I was always sad by the people who said to skip Eccleston.

People often wonder why printers are so cantankerous but frankly any device that embeds pigmented runes in the remains of long-dead trees is going to be stricken by an ancient faerie curse from the start

A big problem with the way history is taught is that we aren't taught the full context of just how awful life was back then. We're (Sweden here) taught the names and lives of an awful lot of kings and how much they murdered people but we never get the perspective of serfs and tradespeople. They don't matter, because workers don't matter to this day.

Make education leftist, make people understand the class struggle that goes on to this day. Teach kids to draw parallels between oppression back then and oppression now.

one of the most interesting moments in my schooling was watching a teacher sweatily try to explain the difference between patriotism (good) and nationalism (bad).
