I NEVER KNEW THIS
I NEVER KNEW THAT WAS WHAT AMERICANS MEANT WHEN THEY SAID “QUITE”
WHY DIDN’T ANYBODY TELL ME
SUDDENLY THAT ONE SONG THAT GOES “HELLO I MISS YOU QUITE TERRIBLY” MAKES LIKE A MILLION TIMES MORE SENSE
are you serious british people
i feel like this means i’ve been overestimating your enthusiasm about things for my entire life

Oh my god
can you IMAGiNE walking in to something like this?
So my school put on a Silent Disco once, and it was one of the most hilarious experiences of my life. Admittedly it is probably slightly different in that everyone just downloaded a play list and we all tried to start them at the exact same second. But that didn’t work so we all danced to the music and it was fine, but like, people would start dancing crazy for sudden song dynamic shifts that you hadn’t gotten to yet, and just… it was hilarious.
But the best part really is taking your headphones off, especially during a song that everyone knows. Because everyone is singing and yelling to the song and without the music there, they sound like a bunch of drunk, yowling cats. It’s awful and hilarious.
The rest of the world doesn’t have silent discos?
Silent discos are amaaaaaazing. I went to one once and they handed out headphones that were connected to three different DJs, so you could just switch DJs whenever you wanted to. And it’s great because if you ever want to talk to someone you can just take your headphones off and there won’t be loud booming music.
oh my GOD
I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT SILENT DISCOS DOES THE REST OF THE WORLD LIVE UNDER A ROCK OR SOMETHING
My friend went to one when he was in England for like a month.
Do I smell a class fundraiser?
OH MY GOD WHY DON’T WE DO THIS
if I ever wanted to open a club, this would be how i do it…yeah - we dont have it in the states as far as i can tell

Great scene, and based on an actual historical incident in medieval Germany:
When King Conrad III defeated the Duke of Welf (in the year 1140) and placed Weinsberg under siege, the wives of the besieged castle negotiated a surrender which granted them the right to leave with whatever they could carry on their shoulders. The king allowed them that much. Leaving everything else aside, each woman took her own husband on her shoulders and carried him out. When the king’s people saw what was happening, many of them said that that was not what had been meant and wanted to put a stop to it. But the king laughed and accepted the women’s clever trick. “A king” he said, “should always stand by his word.”
Medieval women were BAMFs.
