    The equal sign (“=”) was invented in 1557 by Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde, who was fed up with writing “is equal to” in his equations. He chose the two lines because “no two things can be more equal”.

  13. At the Edge by Charles Bukowski

    a smoky room at the edge, it’s always

    been a smoky room at the 
    edge.
    the edge never goes away.
    sometimes you understand it
    better,
    sometimes you even talk to it, you might
    say, “hello, old friend,”
    but it has no sense of humor, it slams you in the
    gut, says,
    "this is a serious business, I’m here to
    kill you or drive you mad.”
    "all right," you reply, "I under-
    stand.”

    tonight this room is smoky
    and I am alone
    listening to the silence.
    I am tired of waiting on life,
    it was so slow to arrive and so quick to
    leave.
    the streets and the cities are
    empty,
    love is on the damned cross
    and death laughs in the back
    room.

    at the edge, the edge, the edge.

    it’s so sad: the flowers are still trying
    to please me,
    the sun shouts my name,
    but my courage fails
    as the animals look on with large 
    eyes.

    this smoky room.
    a stained rug.
    a few books.
    a painting or two.
    a broken chair.
    and empty pair of shoes
    a tired old man

    subordinated debt.

     

  14. "

    Do you hate people?

    I don’t hate them…I just feel better when they’re not around.

    "
    — Charles Bukowski, Barfly

    It took the photographer who took this photo 8 hours to set up the camera in the centre of the venue so he could take this simple photo during Youngbloods in October 2013, pretty cool in my opinion :)

    Fucking flawless

    This deserves every note it gets for the photographer’s and Amity’s sake.

    he nailed it,this picture is fuckin awesome
