being vegan is so emotionally draining like i can’t even look at someone drinking a milkshake without wanting to cry this is ridiculous if your ‘food’ makes me emotionally distressed that might be a sign that it’s not good 

dude get over yourself

Tumblr: where the voice of reason is provided by someone with the url “cumaddict72”

Most scientists believe that a perpetual motion device is impossible, but the ongoing tumblr marxist drama over the “Your fave is problematic: V.I. Lenin” post seems to indicate otherwise.

One moving example of the role of Jewish celebration in both the Austrian and Jewish identities of Jewish soldiers can be found in Teofil Reiss’ diary. In the spring of 1916, Reiss, then behind the lines in Hungary, serving as cook as well as medic, took it on himself to prepare a seder and kosher food for the Jews in his unit. With the Menagegeld, the army’s per diem allocation for soldiers’ food, Reiss went off to Vienna to obtain the necessary supplies, “so that Jewish soldiers should know that one can also eat kosher in the military.” He obtained matzah and wine from local Hungarian Jewish communities. At the seder itself, he asked all those assembled to rise and swear their blood to defend Kaiser and fatherland. “It was so festive,” Reiss exclaims,“that everyone present cried.”

Similarly moving is an April 9, 1917 letter from Moritz Pollack, a junior reserve officer (Zugsführer) on the Isonzo front, to his parents in Prossnitz, Moravia, describing the seder he attended. Pollack was struck by the fact that the Germans, Poles, Hungarians, Czechs, Russians, and Romanians at the seder were “all of them Jews.” The army chaplain gave a talk, first in German and then in Yiddish, while many of those present wept.The food was plentiful and good—soup with two dumplings (made from groats, since matzah was not available), meat, and prunes—and eaten in far more comfortable conditions than most of them had enjoyed for a long time. At the end of the seder they sang out “Next year in Jerusalem” with great feeling, and sang bimhero, (i.e., Adir Hu, a song about the speedy arrival of the messianic age) with a melancholy laugh. After the seder, they all sat for a long time, talking companionably together.92 The actual meaning that Jewish soldiers ascribed to the phrase “Next year in Jerusalem” varied. Many understood the phrase in its traditional messianic or modern Zionist sense, while others understood it symbolically, as an expression of their desire to be home with their children or of their longing for peace.93 In any case, Pollack and the other soldiers surely came away from the evening with an enhanced sense of Jewish solidarity.

Remember how everyone thought it was so ridiculous and uneducated of Tumblr users to think that those people were Nazis and now it looks like they might very well be nazis, amazing
