History Lesson

Insults are a part of human nature

Insults have been a part of human culture and society for centuries. From ancient civilizations to modern times, people have used insults as a way to express anger, frustration, and disagreement with others.

In ancient Rome, insults were an integral part of everyday life, and people used them to settle disputes, mock their enemies, and gain the upper hand in debates and arguments. Roman insults were often extremely vulgar and obscene and could be directed at someone's physical appearance, intelligence, or social status.

During the Middle Ages, insults were used as a way to shame and degrade others, and people would often hurl insults at their enemies as a way to demoralize them. In the Elizabethan era, insults were often used in literature and theater as a way to add drama and conflict to a story.

In modern times, insults are still used as a way to express anger and frustration, but they are often more subtle and less vulgar than in the past. In many cultures, insults are considered socially unacceptable and are generally frowned upon. However, in some cases, insults can be used as a form of playful banter or humor and are not meant to be taken seriously.

Despite their negative connotations, insults have played an important role in human history and have been used to express a wide range of emotions and opinions. Whether they are used to settle disputes or to add drama to a story, insults will continue to be a part of human culture and society for centuries to come.

Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Snowflakes are interesting

Somewhere in the middle of the nightmare known as politics, the word snowflake began to be thrown around. According to those who use the term, it applies to anyone who is woke, sensitive, or more liberal-leaning. While it's meant as an insult, it's not quite the disparaging statement those who use it might think. The next time someone calls you a snowflake, remind them how unique and interesting snowflakes really are. For instance, every single snowflake that falls from the sky is unique. Comprised of over 200 single ice crystals, each snowflake always has six sides. In addition to falling at a rate of 3-4 miles per hour, each snowflake counts toward being the world's largest supply of fresh water. As the temperature drops, each snowflake gets larger, and when there's enough of them together, they can wipe out power capabilities. So the next time you're called a snowflake, take it as a compliment.
