2022.01.26 17:29 Jazz-Cigarettes Emperor Franz Josef of Austria-Hungary once wrote to his wife suggesting that shirtless Bedouin guides must be the reason why “English women so happily and frequently like to scale the pyramids”. Was this a common stereotype other 19th century Europeans had about English women being "thirsty"?
I'm currently reading Margaret MacMillan's The War that Ended Peace about the lead-up to the First World War. In a chapter on Austria-Hungary's prewar history, she details Franz Josef's upbringing, reign, and his attitudes toward the cultural milieu of 19th and early 20th century society.
In what I take as an anecdote meant to demonstrate his sense of propriety and conservative values, she notes that during a visit to Egypt, he wrote in a letter to his wife, the Empress Elizabeth, that the Bedouin guides who helped him climb up tended to leave their shirts open, and that must be why “English women so happily and frequently like to scale the pyramids”.
I think the general stereotype many of us (at least in the Anglosphere) have about Victorian era Britain is that chastity, propriety, and purity were some of the most prized ideals for women. Franz Josef's snarky comment to his wife seems to belie that impression though. Is this just a one-off comment from a particularly conservative monarch putting down another nation's women? Or was there some wider stereotype Europeans had about English women that he was playing into here?

2022.01.26 17:29 tiredmercymain really insecure about my boobs
hello, my boobs are weird i remember ever since i was a kid i wanted to have aesthetic nice boobs even if they weren’t huge i still wanted cleavage. but when i grew up i got weird boobs that are separated. i’m pretty average but the fact that they’re separated because of my torso makes me look small. Does anyone know some push up bras i could use to create atleast some cleavage or a good surgeon? I just want those nice Cass from euphoria boobs not these sad sacks:( i’m 19 also so i’m not sure if they’ll continue to grow or not

Quiero renovar mi licencia de conducir (se me venció la cordobesa hace como 3 años). Tengo una licencia de Estados Unidos (que también se me vence ahora). Como no tengo planeado volver a USA y en Cba. te piden hacer todo el proceso como si fuese la primera vez porque se venció hace mas de un año, puedo usar la licencia de USA para únicamente tener que renovarla y no hacer todo el proceso de nuevo?

2022.01.26 17:29 Zrelv Enabling Page Up and Down Only with Fn Key
I have a laptop with dedicated page up and down key. But it kinda annoying to accidentally press them, because it is located near the right and left arrow key.
On the other hand i'm also sometimes still using those keys, so i don't think, i need to get rid all of them permanently.
Is that possible to make those keys work only when i press them simultaneously with fn key?
Until now i'm just using PgUp::return and PgDn::return in my script to disable those keys.

2022.01.26 17:29 Single-Medium-9792 Graduated Dec 10th, no ATT
I just graduated December 10th with my bachelors. I have been checking my states board of nursing website daily waiting for my authorization to test. I just got notice that I won’t receive it until mid February at the earliest! You’d think with a “nursing shortage” they’d be processing them as quickly as they can. Just wanted to ask if this is normal? My future employer won’t let me start orientation without my license!

2022.01.26 17:29 Daniallalji Special Cases or Extenuating Circumstances Form
I recently applied to the BBA program and also the Financial Mathematics program at WLU. The past 2 years though, my family and I have been taking care of my grandmother (Dad's side) who has dementia. Before the start of my Grade 12 year my grandfather (Mom's side) past away. This past December, my grandmother who had dementia also passed away. And between funeral services and constantly switching between online and in-person school my marks have taken a hit. I really wanted to get into Laurier BBA, but I wasn't sure my marks were good enough. And then I saw this form. I was wondering whether filling out this form would help my application or would it hinder it? I should come out with a mid 80s average, although I was hoping for a 90s average. If anyone has had an experience with this form before, please let me know. It would greatly help my current situation.

2022.01.26 17:29 The_SeaHawkinator Would it be wrong to give my friend an ultimatum?
So, I’ve been friends with this guy for a couple of years now. He’s always been into some darker kinds of humor but I’ve never cared that much fire it. Personally I never liked the jokes he were telling, but I didn’t find any active harm in them. Or at least that was until last year when I actually started learning more about the things he was always referencing in his jokes, I was under educated about the topics before but now truly realize of screwed up some of the things he says are
I’ve considered this guy to be one of my best friends up until now and he doesn’t tell these jokes on the regular, but it’s still often enough for it to be a problem. I’ve been thinking about ways to approach him about bit the only way I can see that would actually work is giving him an ultimatum, something in the style of “if you don’t stop telling these jokes I can’t talk be friends with you anymore, because they actively disturb me”. At the same time however, this feels really mean and douchy to him
TL;DR My friend tells dark jokes that disturb me, would it be wrong to tell him we can’t be friends unless he stops telling them?
Btw: Sorry if I use the word ultimatum in the wrong way, English isn’t my first language
