I like asking people about their tattoos and piercings because it can tell you so much about who they are. It’s really fascinating.

What a specific recurring gag
"Looking at the stars always makes me dream. Why, I ask myself, shouldn’t the shining dots of the sky be as accessible as the black dots on the map of France? Just as we take the train to get to Tarascon or Rouen, we take death to reach a star." — Vincent van Gogh

August 1, 1944: Anne Frank Writes Her Final Diary Entry
On this day in 1944, Jewish victim of the Holocaust, Anne Frank, wrote her final diary entry. In it, she wrote, “[I] keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would like to be, and what I could be, if…there weren’t any other people living in the world.” Her diary, later published under the title, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, detailed the two years that she and her family spent in hiding.
Three days after this entry, Anne and her family were arrested by the Gestapo, the German police. She was eventually placed in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where she was killed by typhus at age 15.
