My Little Place

So basically, I have found my twin, my non-romatical soul mate. 
This chick is one of my followers here on Tumblr, and this is where we met, and it turns out that we are both from the tiny country; Norway, way up north in Europe.
And this was how we started talking, cuz Norwegians on tumblr is few and far apart.
We both struggle with PCOS and infertility.
We are both writers.
We have the same messed up humor.
We both love Supernatural and are Dean girls but are Sam-curious. :-P
We both love Vampire Diaries and True Blood, and we watch the same things on tv and read the same books.
We are both in our late twenties.
We both knit and have a slight yarn-addiction.
And the similarities don´t stop there… It is crazy!

We are basically the same freaking person! What are the odds?



She is now my favorite person on this planet,
cuz let´s face it… we are freaking awesome!

Then I thought; well, that will suck, so screw getting more followers, because my three followers…

I was so surprised to see this! Thank you Aleera. <3


Guys, check this one out, she is a fellow PCOS fighter.
And she is also a fellow Supernatural Fan, she is our family!

So, I read something quite disturbing in my Social Science book:

The Third Wave was a social experiment to demonstrate that even democratic societies are not immune to the appeal of fascism. It was undertaken by history teacher Ron Jones with sophomore high school students attending his “Contemporary World” history class as part of a study of Nazi Germany.
The experiment took place at Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California, during the first week of April 1967. Jones, finding himself unable to explain to his students how the German population could have claimed ignorance of the extermination of the Jewish people, decided to demonstrate it to them instead. Jones started a movement called 

“The Third Wave” and told his students that the movement aimed to eliminate democracy. The idea that democracy emphasizes individuality was considered as a drawback of democracy, and Jones emphasized this main point of the movement in its motto:
“Strength through discipline, strength through community, strength through action, strength through pride.”

First day:
Jones writes that he started the first day of the experiment with simple things such as proper seating and extensively drilling the students. He then proceeded to enforce strict classroom discipline by emerging as an authoritarian figure and dramatically improving the efficiency of the class.
The first day’s session was closed with only a few rules, intending to be a one-day experiment. Students had to be sitting at attention before the second bell, had to stand up to ask or answer questions and had to do it in three words or fewer, and were required to preface each remark with “Mr. Jones.”

Second day:
On the second day he managed to meld his history class into a group with a supreme sense of discipline and community. Jones based the name of his movement, 
"The Third Wave," on the supposed fact that the third in a series of waves is the strongest, an erroneous version of an actual sailing tradition that every ninth wave is the largest. Jones made up a salute resembling that of the Nazi regime and ordered class members to salute each other even outside the class. They all complied with this command.

Third day:
The experiment took on a life of its own, with students from all over the school joining in: on the third day the class expanded from initial 30 students to 43 attendees. All of the students showed drastic improvement in their academic skills and tremendous motivation. All of the students were issued a member card and each of them received a special assignment, like designing a Third Wave Banner, stopping non-members from entering the class, or the like. Jones instructed the students on how to initiate new members, and by the end of the day the movement had over 200 participants. Jones was surprised that some of the students started reporting to him when other members of the movement failed to abide by the rules.

Fourth day:
On Thursday, the fourth day of the experiment, Jones decided to terminate the movement because it was slipping out of his control. The students became increasingly involved in the project and their discipline and loyalty to the project was outstanding. He announced to the participants that this movement was a part of a nationwide movement and that on the next day a presidential candidate of the Third Wave would publicly announce its existence. Jones ordered students to attend a noon rally on Friday to witness the announcement.

Fifth and last day:
Instead of a televised address of their leader, the students were presented with an empty channel. After a few minutes of waiting, Jones announced that they had been a part of an experiment in fascism and that they all willingly created a sense of superiority like German citizens had in the period of Nazi Germany. He then played them a film about the Nazi regime to conclude the experiment.
