Not sure this qualifies, but this is the only probable picture of Kate Warne, the first female detective. Not only was she the first detective, but she even went on to save the life of president elect Abraham Lincoln after uncovering a plot to assassinate him on the way to Washington D.C. to take office. She was best known for being a master of disguise, able to switch from Union soldier, to Southern debutante, to a harmless grandmother.

Reblogging, because BAMF.

“Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and bang a nun. If nothing in that sentence at least marginally interests you, I have no idea why you’re visiting this website.”

There’s also the bit where she and her nun girlfriend escaped by burning down the convent to fake their own deaths.  And her habit of flashing anyone who didn’t believe such a good swordsman could actually be a woman.  And the boyfriend she picked up by driving a foot of sharpened steel through his shoulder.

Basically, what I’m saying is that if she weren’t real, I’d accuse Steven Moffat of making her up.

WHERE IS MY TV SHOW ABOUT THIS LADY

Sorry, Mary. I’ve fallen in love with another woman.

Whoa …

Misato, who has been previously hired by her High School to rid their auditorium of pigeons, asserts that her falcon, Momotaro, will get the job done.

“The falcon is a divine punishment against crows. When their eyes meet the glare of the falcon, they will definitely not return” she says without a single doubt in her mind.

“Uhura” comes from the Swahili word UHURU meaning “freedom”. Uhura was pretty much the first ever black main character on American television who was not a maid or a domestic servant in 1966. TV network NBC refused to let Nichelle Nichols be a regular, claiming Deep South affiliates would be angered, so Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry hired her as a “day worker,” but still included her in almost every episode. She actually made more money than any of the other actors through this workaround, and it was kept secret from the other actors, but it was still a humiliating second-class status. The network people made life hard for Nichols, constantly trying to pare down her screen time, purposefully dropping racist comments in her presence and even withholding her fan mail from her.This deplorable state of affairs led Nichols to make the decision to quit after the 1st season, but then she happened to meet the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. who pleaded with her to stick with the show because as a Black woman she was portraying the first non-stereotypical role on television. 

Reblogging again because I fucking damn well can and should.

also shes one of the best characters just saying!

Doug Jones. The name doesn’t ring a bell, does it? Probably not. But I’m here to tell you that this bitch is fabulous.

He started out as a mime and a professional contortionist. He got into acting and has acted in over 25 movies and numerous television shows. Still doesn’t ring any bells? Probably because Doug’s gig is characters and crazy ass costumes and shit.

Here’s a picture of him:

Still not look too familiar? Well, maybe you saw Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer?

Doug Jones.

Or, are you a Buffy fan? Remember the episode “Hush”?

Look familiar now? He’s the one in the front.

Did you like the movie Pan’s Labyrinth?

Doug Mother Fucking Jones.

Or, hey! Were you born in the 90’s? Remember the movie Hocus Pocus that would play on Disney Channel every halloween? Remember this guy?:

image

Yup. Doug Jones.

Still not convinced of how badass this guy is? Here’s some awesome for you.

It took him 5 hours to get into the Pale Man costume in Pan’s Labyrinth, and, once in it, he could only just slightly see out of the nose holes, but he was mostly blind.

And the costume for Fauno himself? Well, he could only just barely see out of the nose holes in that one, too. The actual head part was filled with mechanics that made the eyebrows and ears move. And those mechanics were so loud that he couldn’t hear while inside of it, so he had to memorize Ofelia’s lines as well as his own so that he could say them in his head to know when to talk. Oh, and he doesn’t actually speak any Spanish at all, so he was memorizing both his, and someone else’s lines in a language he couldn’t speak.

Doug Mother Fucking Jones.

Polaire, or Émilie Marie Bouchaud! A French actress, she had a 14” waist, first bobbed her hair in the 1890s, and had a nose piercing. She acted in plays and films. I’ve never been able to find one of her films, but some of her music is available online.

INTERVIEWER: Give me one of your purely satisfying moments.
TINA FEY: The first thing that comes to mind is a more recent one, when Amy Poehler and I were in the airport last week in Toronto and we were getting hassled by this middle-aged businessman who was doing that thing that middle-aged businessmen do, being rude. And then Amy, in the middle of the airport, screamed, “Fuck you, you fuckin’ dick, you fuckin’ rich asshole.” And it was so satisfying—it was immediate release.

— GQ Magazine, February 2004 (x)

TINA FEY: We went to Toronto one time on this flight— we were making Mean Girls— and me and Ana Gastayer and Amy Poehler were all on this flight and we got off and this businessman just like, pushed passed Amy and she was just like “Hey, what’s up? You should say you’re sorry.” And he was like, “You should say you’re sorry for being in my way,” being really rude to her. And I saw her little Irish brain snap, and she just like looked up and she took this breath and she was just like— well, yeah. She just unleashed on this guy, and the dude literally ran away. He was like a 50-year old businessman and he ran away.

Hero Fireman of the Day: It’s the feel-good story of the day: Redditor Logan Fernandes on Sunday shared the life-saving heroics of an Indiana firefighter who saved a kitty from a fire when it seemed all hope was lost.

Fernandes reported that his mom’s neighbor Vincent, whom Fernandes called “mentally challenged,” had left a candle burning in his apartment and one of his cats knocked it over.

He came home to his house in flames. After being told there were no other people inside, the fireman were resigned to let the cats go. While the guy was having an emotional breakdown about losing his cats (“They’re all I’ve got!” he kept saying) one of the firefighters searched for nearly 15 minutes and found one alive. [H]e stayed outside giving it mouth to mouth and oxygen for 20 minutes until she started purring again. Needless to say, he’s f*cking awesome.

Domino was taken to a vet, who promised the kitty is going to make a full recovery. Meanwhile, Reddit users have raised more than $3,500 for Vincent, who lost his other three cats and his apartment in the fire. He’s managing, but “having a hard time with it.”

Still no word on the identity of the hero fireman.

The first woman to ask for divorce and lead an army, Eleanor of Aquitaine lived until she was 82 (pretty good considering most died in their 40s). She got a formal education, which was really rare for women in that era. There are rumours that she poisoned her second husband Henry II’s mistress, the Fair Rosamund.

This lady’s bad-ass.

eleanor of aquitaine is my favourite

Well she was also the most powerfull feudal landowner of her time. She was badass.

#and then she tricked him into revealing his plans #ur fave could never

#except no other faves COULD ever because nearly every other names character in this film is male #and natasha operates within gender paradigms #she exploits them and inverts them and uses them to burn the best laid plans #i do think she’s actually afraid here when he says he’ll have clint kill her slowly and intimately #just because he could and my kingdom for the two of them when she has a nightmare about the hulk #but otherwise she knows exactly what she’s doing. every facial expression and body motion is purposeful #these strong powerful men with ego problems think her vulnerable because she’s armed with nothing but her body #and that body is small and breakable and doesn’t have any armor at all #but that body is far more powerful than any of those men realize and she can kill with it if she has to #and she’s got no problem with that but her main goal is extraction and you can’t extract information from the dead #so she takes those assumptions about her and turns that strength against the men who think little of her #she allows them to think they’ve gotten power over her and in so doing she crawls into their plans and burns them down from the inside #your favorites could actually never because every other avenger in this film is a man #and a man could never do this
