well behaved women rarely make history but neither do boring teenage girls who do nothing but party so you’re in a bit of a pickle there champ

Will: If you’re the Chesapeake Ripper and you know it, clap your hands.

Hannibal: [clap clap]

Jack: Don’t applaud his singing, Hannibal. You’ll only encourage him.

Green Peafowl (Pavo muticus)

Unlike the Indian peafowl, which most people are familiar with, the male and female green peafowl have similar coloration. Green peafowl have green, rather than blue, feathers on the head and neck. This endangered species has a very rapidly declining and severely fragmented population, primarily owing to intense habitat conversion and high hunting levels.

He says: I’m Muslim.
As he brings the double shot of rum to his lips.
I imagine the way it burns as it slides down his throat.
He winces, then smashes the glass against table.
Everyone turns and cheers,
then they go back to their conversations.
He says it again — I swear.
I say: I know.
He looks at me with sad eyes.
Wallahi - he says,
still trying to convince me.
I say: I know.
I watch his eyes turn to glass as he downs another.
I swear I am Muslim - he slurs
I say: I know.
No— he says— you’re judging me, look
and he holds his hands over his ears and he begins to recite.
And I put my hand over his as people begin to stare.
And I say: I know.
And he begins to cry, and his tears look ancient, and his face contorts, and his mouth is open but there is no sound, and his body shudders.
And he tries again and again, never getting past Bismillah.
He keeps on saying “No you don’t understand I am Muslim, I am Muslim, I am Muslim, I am Muslim”
I know, I say.
And he holds the bottle to his mouth and he almost swallows it whole, and he says “marry me Aasiyah, I am a good man, my father is a hafiz of Quran,
it is just this Dunya, it is this world that has killed me”
I know, I say
I know.
