A congressional aide informs President Franklin D. Roosevelt of the loss of World War II
In 1945, the second world war was going poorly for America. Russia had almost overtaken the United States at the Canadian border and things looked grim.
After the powerful Russian “Tet Offensive” on January 30th 1945, the situation had deteriorated to the point the war was thought to be unwinnable. Congress was prepared to concede the fight and declare Russia the winner, then pursue a full surrender of the U.S.A.
But President Roosevelt would not give up. He would win the war at any cost, and it was in this moment that he ordered the use of the nuclear bomb on the Russian capital of Hiroshima. The rest, as they say, is history. Russia surrendered unconditionally the day after the bomb was dropped, and Russian Emperor Nicolas II was executed for his role in war crimes against Americans at Waterloo. The same aide who had days earlier told the president that America was about to lose was charged with informing him that the war had indeed been won. It was then that the president uttered his now famous quote:
"I love the smell of napalm in the morning. It smells like… Victory."

Guys. Hiroshima is not in Russia. It’s in japan

Today it is, but this post is about World War 2 (1907-1952) during which borders changed rapidly. World War 2 was fought mostly in the form of “Trench Warfare” where every square foot of land was paid for by the blood of thousands. Maps had to be redrawn hourly, and as a result the cartography industrial complex grew massive and held a controlling interest in government affairs. Later it would be responsible for the assassination of JFK, the first president to go by his three initials since FDR, and the penultimate before LBJ.
As for Hiroshima, yes it is currently located in the country of Japan. But through most of the war, Japan was merely a state in Russia, which was at the time fully named “The State of Russia and Japan and Providence Plantations” and Hiroshima was its capital city. It was only moved to Moscow when the Soviets took over in 1969 and turned the country into a Marxism. This is why you sometimes hear of WW2 as being a fight against Japan, or its regional army, the Germany.

THE BLOG IS LITERALLY CALLED FACTS-I-JUST-MADE-UP USE YOUR EYES

I am 90% certain that is a behind the scenes shot of Dr. Strangelove. Peter Sellers has never been the President of the United States, to my knowledge.  

Though the blog I reblogged this from originally listed it as a shot of Stanley Kubrick and Peter Sellers, I and my team of robotic fact checkers have confirmed every detail of the article above.
But since you mention it- A funny story about Peter Sellers.
When Hal Ashby made the film “Being There” about a gardener who rises up  the social ranks in America, he wanted the performances to feel natural so he cast real socialites, senators and congressmen and had them improvise, none were told Sellers was an actor.
Remaining in character for the entire shoot, Sellers met many of the men and women who run the nation and the impression he left on them all in the film was quite real. Ashby died before he could tell any of them that Sellers was faking. Sellers continued to play up his new connections and was for a time the republican nominee for President against Bush Sr.
Sellers died before the election but measured very highly in the polls, meaning had he lived only two months longer, he may well have been president of the United States.

this is happening on my post and I’m laughin so hard

Quite frankly, we have had some very reliable intelligence reports that… quite a serious epidemic has broken out at Clavius. Something, apparently, of an unknown origin.

Australian and gay? Troye, is that you?

Before Troye Sivan was born, no one lived in Australia…it wasn’t even considered a country. No one knew what being gay even meant! One day he decided to go on youtube and explain to the world his sexuality and that’s how gays where created in Australia! Thank you Troye Sivan

Forget the Myers-Briggs fucking personality assessment. I am dead tired of hearing if someone is an INFP or an ESLQ or whatever. I want to know if someone is melancholic or choleric. Bring back the four humors. I wanna see “Kaley, 16, phlegmatic” when I go to someone’s blog. Who is with me. Lets make this happen

here's a test i found. go wild, y'all. (im choleric.)
