for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever
THE MOST BADASS EVER
WOMEN ARE BADASS MOTHERFUCKERS! WISH THEY TAUGHT THIS IN HISTORY CLASSES

This Friday I will be auctioning one of my first big customized doll projects that I’ve made in 2010 - Harshad the munny. All the money from the auction will go to support glassblower Kenan Tiemeyer and his family who’s house burned to the ground yesterday.
Links will be posted once auction will start!
Kenan and his family are going through a huge loss right now— raising awareness and support for this important cause. Every little bit counts.
You can also show support through these sites:

Awww,Kids:) by Мартыненко Андрей.
Done in Atlanta, Georgia. At Sacred Heart Tattoo. By Emily Effler. She does amazing work. She is so gentle and incredibly artistic. This is my first tattoo. It is so so special and unique to me.
Let’s go through the list, shall we?
- Stalking Cat was a computer programmer before he passed away earlier this year. He was Native American and trying to become closer to his totem animal. Through this, he helped pioneer all types of body modification and holds several Guinness Book Records.
- Erik Sprague, aka Lizard Man, was a former PhD candidate. He has a bachelor’s in philosophy and is a performance artist: both through international side shows and as a music festival host.
- Maria Jose Cristerna aka “La Mujer Vampiro” (Vampire Woman) is the mother of four children and a fuckin’ lawyer. She started her transformation after getting out of an abusive marriage, and has talked out against domestic violence.
- Rick Genest aka Rico The Zombie is a fucking international model, has more sponsorships than any of us could ever hope, and was featured in Lady Gaga’s Born This Way video. Not bad for a 27-year old former homeless punk, I’d say.I’m willing to bet you haven’t accomplished nearly as much as any one of these people. They’re not only heavily tattooed, but they’re also impressive as all hell in the “employed” department. But don’t worry about it—feel free to keep trying to make yourself feel better about your average life, average body, and average accomplishments.Successful, employed, intelligent, body mod legends.
