Sak Yant or Yantra Tattooing are  believed to give the wearer magic powers associated with healing, luck, strength, and protection against evil.

You can get these here in thailand by a monk, they look beautiful but I’d never recommend it. Essentially, you’re making a pact with a spirit to protect you in exchange for sacrificing an activity or habit you may have previously enjoyed (the monk decides what this is, not you). These tattoos are contracts. 
 Breaking your side of the bargain may encourage the spirit to ‘punish’ you, and these contracts are not easily voided.

back the fuck up

There’s another story that I like about a Chinese general who had to defend a city with only a handful of soldiers from a huge enemy horde that was in all likelihood going to steamroll the place flat within hours of showing up.
So when said horde did arrive, they saw the general sitting outside the city’s open gates, drinking tea. The horde sent a couple of emissaries over to see what was what, and the general greeted them cheerfully and invited them all to come and take tea with him.
The horde decided that this was a scenario that had “MASSIVE FUCKING TRAP” written all over it in beautiful calligraphy and promptly fucked off.
Whoever that general was, he was clearly the Ancient Chinese equivalent of Sam Vimes.


did he just invite us over for tea nah man i’m out

she don’t even care bout that war no more… she ready

Hahah! :D
So this is from a HUGE David painting at the Louvre depicting the Sabine women (whom the first Romans had carried off to be the mothers of their children) intervening to stop bloodshed between early Romans and Sabines, since they were practically kin.
Now I know it looks like the grandmother at the front is striking a ‘my body is ready’ pose - who could blame her?! - but I have a theory that she is about to expose her breasts: look how she is pulling at the front of her dress. Again, that might sound like she’s having a bit of a hot flush at a particularly inopportune moment, but exposing one’s breasts in the ancient world was sometimes a sign of grief and mourning, which was considered the duty of women.
I think it’s even more likely, though, that David got his idea for a motherly figure about to expose her breasts in order to stop a battle from Book 22 of the Iliad. From XXII.78ff. Hecuba, Queen of Troy and the mother of the hero Hector, pleads one last time with her son to remain within the walls and not to join the battle. She exposes her breast to him as a way of reminding him that as his mother she gave him his life and begs him not to throw it away, out of pity for her if nothing else. Of course she is unsuccessful and Hector goes off and dies a sad, sad death, but the Iliad being as famous as it is, I think David might well have had that poignant scene in mind when he made this tableau.
Incidentally, David knew how to paint a good butt … my other favourite is the one he did of Leonidas and ‘the 300’ at Thermopylae because of all the hunky naked Spartans. ;)
