The King Needs Your Pee!
In 1626 King Charles I of England passed the first urine laws, a set of laws mandating that English citizens collect their urine in whatever handy receptacle was available. Citizens all over the kingdom peed into bottles and would place them on their doorsteps the next morning for pickup. Why was it that the king wanted his citizens pee so badly?
Among the many chemicals that make up urine is the rare element potassium, needed to create saltpeter (potassium nitrate) for the production of gunpowder. At the time potassium nitrate could only be found in decaying plant matter (usually cow dung) and human urine. So the citizens of England would pee in jugs, the jugs would be collected by workers called “saltpetermen”, and the urine would be distilled for its important chemicals to produce gunpowder for the king’s army.
In 1642 the English Parliament rebelled against King Charles I, signalling the beginning of the English Civil War. In order to defeat the “roundheads” as the Puritan rebels (Parliamentarians) were called, the king needed vast amounts of saltpeter, and thus urine. In every English city controlled by the royalists, special privy’s were installed where large amounts of urine could be collected. Women were especially encourage to save their pee, since for some reason female urine contains higher concentrations of potassium. Incredibly at Sunday Mass, instead of a collection basket, jugs were passed around and faithful parishioners donated to the cause of the king and the faith (this is true, I kid you not!). Unfortunately for Charles I, no amount of pee could save his rule or his life. He was deposed by Oliver Cromwell and beheaded as a traitor.
The urine laws of England would not be the last instance in which pee was collected for the good of the state. One of the most notable examples of urine collecting in American history was during the American Civil War. The Union had no problem producing potassium nitrate as the north was a very industrialized region. The agricultural south, however, could not produce enough, and it was not uncommon for Southern women to save their urine for the Confederate cause.
Since I am posting about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot, I thought I might reblog this peashooter classic.
WHAT THE HELL lol
Loki is so childish!!! (x)
forever reblog for respect.
it’s a nice bum bum
That is the most assinine question I have ever been asked. What would have made you think, even for a split second, that that would be a good way to a.) Get someone to check out your profile and like what they see. b) not think you are a complete ass c) even consider going on a date with you
Part of me thinks a few possible options. 1.) By putting stupid questions and tossing in the race card you are hoping to get ample responses. 2.) You didn’t like the way I declined last time you messaged me so you were hoping to push my buttons or make me feel bad somehow? 3.) You have the stupidest sense of humor 4.) You are mentally unstable
Regardless of what prompted you to message the way you did, you should stop, unless your goal is to get every girl on this site to think your gross
The Last Battle of Baba Deep Singh,
Born in 1682 Baba Deep Singh (A baba is a Sikh saint) had a lifelong career as a Sikh soldier and warrior. Upon retirement Deep Singh settled down to a life of quiet contemplation and spiritualism as a religious scholar. Then the Durrani Empire invaded.
Composed of modern day Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Eastern Iran, the Durani Empire had been founded by the warlord Ahmad Shah Durrani. In 1757 he invaded the Punjab region of India. With the hope of quelling Sikh resistance, he occupied and destroyed the Harimander Sahib (Temple of God), one of the holiest sites in all of Sikhism. He also ordered the altar of the temple covered in the entrails of dead cows. While Sikh’s do not consider the cow a sacred animal, the act was certainly offensive to the highest extreme. Unfortunately for Durrani, the destruction and defilement of the temple would not have the effect he desired.
Upon hearing of the travesty, the 75 year old Deep Singh came out of retirement, took up his sword, and vowed to rebuild and restore the temple. Drawing a line in the sand with his sword he proclaimed,
"Jo to praym khaylan ka chaao, sir dhar talee galee mayree aao." (Those who wish to play the game of love (to follow the Sikh path), come to me with your head in your palm.)
Hundreds of peasants crossed the line and joined Baba Deep Singh. As he marched closer to Harimander Sahib, more and more joined his army until it numbered around five thousand. When word arrived of Baba Deep Singh’s movement, the Durrani general Jahan Khan mobilized his own army of 20,000. The two armies clashed near the village of Goharwal.
The Sikhs fought with courageous tenacity, beating back the enemy with ferocity. Deep Singh was especially noted as a terror to behold, swinging a massive 32lb kanda sword that sliced the enemy to pieces. However the Durrani began to gain the upper hand when reinforcements arrived. Worse yet, a blade also sliced through the neck of Baba Deep Singh, severing his head from his body. At that moment, it seemed like the Sikhs were going to break.
Undeterred by his terrible wound Baba Deep Singh picked up his decapitated head and continued the fight. Upon the sight of Deep Singh, sword in one hand and head in the other as he continued to hack apart his enemies, the Durrani panicked and retreated. Eventually the army was pushed out of India and forced to retreat back to Afghanistan. At the end of the battle Baba Deep Singh entered the ruins of the Harimander Sahib and placed his head at the doorway. He then collapsed and died.
Today Baba Deep Singh is revered by Sikhs as one of the holiest saints and martyrs of Sikhism.
