 President Trump was not impressed with a tour of the first
 commander in chiefs home last year, Politico reported
 Wednesday, describing his visit to Mount Vernon with French
 President Emmanuel Macron and their wives as "truly bizarre."
 "If he was smart, he would've put his name on it," Trump
 reportedly said. "You've got to put your name on stuff or no one
 remembers you."
 On the subject of whether anyone remembers George
 Washington, The Washington Post, which is based in the capital
 city of Washington (not Washington state) near George
 Washington University, would refer readers to the fact that
 Washington has come in first or second in nearly every "best
 presidents" poll conducted, including the most recent one, in
 2018, by Siena College Research Institute. Trump, in case you're
 wondering, came in 42nd out of 45 commanders in chief.

I want to know who the 3 presidents are that are ranked lower than Trump


1.  Nixon (asshole)
2.  Reagan (super asshole)
3.  Zachary Taylor (died after one and a half years of presidency like a bitch)


Trump is ranked lower than William Henry Harrison, who died after just 31 days in office. He ranked lower than a man whose presidential legacy is that his inauguration speech was so damn long he gave himself pneumonia because of it and…died.
I mean, damn.

peabody: K SIDE MENSION Misteri Hilangnya Michael Rockefeller di Papua HUMANDoD Keluarga Rockefeller adalah salah satu keluarga kaya di Amerika. Keluarga ini dianggap kaya raya di akhir tahun 1800-an Michael Clark Rockefeller merupakan generasi ke-empat keluarga Rockefeller. Dilahirkan pada tanggal 18 Mei 1938, anak bungsu dari 5 bersaudara ini meraih gelar cum laude dari Universitas Harvard untuk bidang sejarah dan ekonomi. Michael juga dikenal suka dengan dunia arkeologi, dia suka mengumpulkan artefak-artefak kuno dari beberapa penjuru dunia Tahun 1961, Michael bekerja untuk Museum Arkeologi dan Etnologi Peabody. Pada tanggal 17 November 1961, Michael yang saat itu berusia 23 tahun bersama seorang antropolog asal Belanda bernama Rene Wassing menaiki perahu yang akhirnya terbalik karena hujan badai sekitar 5 km dari tepi pantai Papua Terapung-apung selama beberapa waktu, pagi hari di 19 November 1961, Michael mengatakan pada Rene “I think I can make it,” lalu berenang ke tepian. Saat itu jarak antara mereka dan tepi pantai sekitar 19 kilometer. Rene diselamatkan pada hari berikutnya, sementara Michael tidak ditemukan di mana pun. Dugaan sementara Michael kepanasan, kelelahan lalu tenggelam Hilangnya Michael membuat sang ayah, yang saat itu menjabat sebagai Gubernur New York, menyewa Boeing 707 dan terbang bersama tentara untuk mencari Michael. Setelah 10 hari pencarian yang melelahkan, akhirnya perburuan dihentikan Pada tahun 1968, seorang editor majalah New York, Milt Machlin, terbang ke Papua dan bertemu dengan seorang pensiunan tentara Belanda dan misionaris, Cornelius Van Kessel yang menyatakan bahwa seminggu setelah pencarian Michael, muncul desas desus Michael ditangkap, dibunuh, dan dimakan oleh suku Asmat sebagai balas dendam atas serangan polisi kulit putih beberapa tahun sebelumnya. Kembali ke New York dengan rasa percaya tidak percaya, Machlin mengirim fotografernya, Malcolm Kirk untuk kembali ke Papua Hasil rekaman Kirk memuat seorang kulit putih berjanggut sedang menaiki kano bersama suku Asmat lainnya. Tapi rekaman itu disimpan oleh Machlin dan baru terungkap 40 tahun kemudian oleh Fraser Heston Mungkinkah itu adalah Michael? Atau hanya warga setempat yang albino? Sumber: www.jurukunci.net

 di Papua
HUMANDoD Keluarga Rockefeller adalah salah satu keluarga kaya di Amerika. Keluarga ini dianggap kaya raya di akhir tahun 1800-an Michael Clark Rockefeller merupakan generasi ke-empat keluarga Rockefeller. Dilahirkan pada tanggal 18 Mei 1938, anak bungsu dari 5 bersaudara ini meraih gelar cum laude dari Universitas Harvard untuk bidang sejarah dan ekonomi. Michael juga dikenal suka dengan dunia arkeologi, dia suka mengumpulkan artefak-artefak kuno dari beberapa penjuru dunia Tahun 1961, Michael bekerja untuk Museum Arkeologi dan Etnologi Peabody. Pada tanggal 17 November 1961, Michael yang saat itu berusia 23 tahun bersama seorang antropolog asal Belanda bernama Rene Wassing menaiki perahu yang akhirnya terbalik karena hujan badai sekitar 5 km dari tepi pantai Papua Terapung-apung selama beberapa waktu, pagi hari di 19 November 1961, Michael mengatakan pada Rene “I think I can make it,” lalu berenang ke tepian. Saat itu jarak antara mereka dan tepi pantai sekitar 19 kilometer. Rene diselamatkan pada hari berikutnya, sementara Michael tidak ditemukan di mana pun. Dugaan sementara Michael kepanasan, kelelahan lalu tenggelam Hilangnya Michael membuat sang ayah, yang saat itu menjabat sebagai Gubernur New York, menyewa Boeing 707 dan terbang bersama tentara untuk mencari Michael. Setelah 10 hari pencarian yang melelahkan, akhirnya perburuan dihentikan Pada tahun 1968, seorang editor majalah New York, Milt Machlin, terbang ke Papua dan bertemu dengan seorang pensiunan tentara Belanda dan misionaris, Cornelius Van Kessel yang menyatakan bahwa seminggu setelah pencarian Michael, muncul desas desus Michael ditangkap, dibunuh, dan dimakan oleh suku Asmat sebagai balas dendam atas serangan polisi kulit putih beberapa tahun sebelumnya. Kembali ke New York dengan rasa percaya tidak percaya, Machlin mengirim fotografernya, Malcolm Kirk untuk kembali ke Papua Hasil rekaman Kirk memuat seorang kulit putih berjanggut sedang menaiki kano bersama suku Asmat lainnya. Tapi rekaman itu disimpan oleh Machlin dan baru terungkap 40 tahun kemudian oleh Fraser Heston Mungkinkah itu adalah Michael? Atau hanya warga setempat yang albino? Sumber: www.jurukunci.net

peabody: justplainsomething: nakedsasquatch: lanawhatever: nakedsasquatch it’s ya man Okay but seriously folks - as often as I joke about this movie stirs my loins and as weirdly popular as this text post got a while back, I wanna rap with you all about why the George of the Jungle remake is a pretty important piece of cinema. It’s literally the only movie I can think of that is based completely around the unheard of “FEMALE gaze.” Granted, while I’m a huge movie buff I’ve not seen every movie ever made. But even so, even if there’s another example of the “female gaze” in cinema that has escaped me it’s still damn impressive that a kids movie from 1997 based on a Jay Ward cartoon from the 60’s managed to turn gender representation in media on it’s fucking ass! First things first, let’s look at our leading lady and love interest - Ursula, played by Leslie Mann. Let me just say that while Leslie Mann is adorable and a talented actress, she does look a little less conventional and a little more plain compared to the bombshells that Hollywood likes to churn out. Leslie, in comparison, looks much more like a real women you’d meet on the street. She dresses pretty conservatively and plain throughout the film ; Wearing outfits that are more functional than fashionable for trekking through the jungle, pulling her hair back and so forth. Not that if she was dolled up and more scantily clad it would give her character any less integrity, but can we appreciate how RARE that is in the male dominated industry of film? Just think about all the roads a film about a woman in the jungle COULD have taken but didn’t - no scenes with her clothes strategically ripped or anything! You can say this is a kids movie, intended for children and that’s why the sensuality of the female lead is so downplayed but there are PLENTY of kids movies that handle women in a very objectifying and sexualized manner despite the target audience is pre-pubescent. Like, a disgusting amount. So I don’t think “it’s a kids movie” is why the film doesn’t take ANY, let alone EVERY, opportunity to showcase the main female character’s sex appeal… …especially considering the sex appeal of the film rests squarely on the well defined shoulders of our male lead, George of the Jungle played by Brendan Fraser in the best god damn shape of his life! *Homer Simpson Drooling Noises* Whenever members of the reddit community try to compare the sexualization of women in fiction to the design of characters such as Batman and Superman, I always want to just sit them down and show them this movie. Because THIS is what the female sexual fantasy looks like, and Batman and Superman are male power-fantasies. Look at him - his big blue eyes, his soft hair, his lean, chiseled physique built for dexterity rather than power. He’s wild and free, but gentle. It’s like he fell right out of that steamy romance novel your mom tried to hide from you growing up. Hell, the whole plot seems to be designed around how damn hot he is! First, for the majority of the film, he wears only a small strip of cloth to cover the dick balls and ass. Everything else is FAIR GAME to drool over for 40 minutes. Then, after he meets Ursula she takes him with her to San Francisco just so we can enjoy him in a well-tailored suit (as seen in the gif set), running around in an open and billowy shirt along side horses while Ursula and all of her friends literally crowd around and make sexual comments about him, and my personal favorite, ditch the loincloth entirely and have him walk around naked while covering his man-bits with various objects while one of Ursula’s very lucky friends oogles him and makes a joke along the lines of “So THAT’S why they call him the ‘KING of the Jungle’…” And yes, it’s also a very cute and funny little movie. Out of all the movies based on Jay Ward cartoons, it was the most faithful to the fast-paced humor and wit of the original source material (yes even the new Peabody and Sherman movie which honestly I thought was too cutesy-poo.) But that’s not why this movie is popular with the gay community or why we all became women in 1997. It’s just really cool that there’s a film out there where the sensuality of the female form takes a back seat for the oiled up, chiseled, physique of Brendan Fraser (in his prime that is) One thing to add: in the scene mentioned above where the ladies are watching him in the billowy shirt running with the horses, it pans back to about 50 feet away to two guys in suits at this party looking at the women and one of the guys says, “Man, what is it with women and horses?” So not only does this movie highlight the female gaze, but it blatantly points out that western male sensibilities don’t have a clue what actually appeals to women.
