“The niece of the great Mongol leader, Kubla Khan, Princess Khutulun was described by Marco Polo as the greatest warrior in Khan’s army. She told her uncle she would marry any man who could wrestle her and win. If they lost they had to give her 100 horses.

She died unmarried with 10,000 horses.”

a guy walked into the board room and said

"hi sweetheart if you could fix me up a coffee real quick im meeting with the regional reports manager in like five minutes, thanks darling"

and i just stared at him and coldly said

"i am the regional reports manager"

we are now twenty minutes into this board meeting and i dont think i’ve ever seen a man look so embarrassed and afraid in my whole life

Michael Dunn has been sentenced to life without parole for the murder of teenager Jordan Davis. This sentence will run consecutively to the three counts of convicted murder he was found guilty of for the other passengers in the vehicle. Prayers to the Davis family. This sentence can never replace their child, but at least justice has finally been served. #staywoke
