Girls didn’t really take much interest in me until I was about 14. But I knew how to talk to them very quickly. What I figured out - that my friends didn’t - was you have to talk to women like you’re not constantly trying to have sex with them. That seemed to work.

The Oscar nominated costumes for Sense and Sensibility were designed by Jenny Beavan and John Bright. They worked with one another on several other films, including The Remains of the Day, A Room With a View and The Bostonians. Their creations for Emma Thompson’s screenplay of Jane Austen’s famous novel have gone on to be used and altered for many Regency era films and television shows.

This white and blue checked gown has certainly made the rounds over the years, having been worn at least nine times. It first appeared in 1995 on Emma Thompson as Elinor Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility. It was seen again in 2000 on Honeysuckle Weeks as Alice in the television special Victoria Wood with All the Trimmings in a skit entitled Plots and Proposals.  In 2002 it was seen on an extra in the mini-series Napoléon.  In 2003 it was worn again on an extra in Byron, and in 2004 was utilized in the reality series Regency House Party on Victoria Hopkins.  The gown was worn twice in 2007, first in Mansfield Park on Billie Piper as Fanny Price, and then in Persuasion on Rosamund Stephen as Henrietta Musgrove. In 2011 it was spotted on Nicola Burley as Isabella Linton in Wuthering Heights.  Most recently the costume was seen in 2013 in Austenland on Georgia King as Lady Amelia Heartwright, though some trim has been added to the sleeves and empire waist to give it a slightly different look.

Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”

Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.

90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums

Are we not going to mention Jesus?

Nailed it.

*wheeze* 

Oh my god.

Nailed it.
