Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.

Why can’t we have a movie about him?

He was often called “Sempo”, an alternative reading of the characters of his first name, as that was easier for Westerners to pronounce.
His wife, Yukiko, was also a part of this; she is often credited with suggesting the plan. The Sugihara family was held in a Soviet POW camp for 18 months until the end of the war; within a year of returning home, Sugihara was asked to resign - officially due to downsizing, but most likely because the government disagreed with his actions.
He didn’t simply grant visas - he granted visas against direct orders, after attempting three times to receive permission from the Japanese Foreign Ministry and being turned down each time. He did not “misread” orders; he was in direct violation of them, with the encouragement and support of his wife.
He was honoured as Righteous Among the Nations in 1985, a year before he died in Kamakura; he and his descendants have also been granted permanent Israeli citizenship. He was also posthumously awarded the Life Saving Cross of Lithuania (1993); Commander’s Cross Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland (1996); and the Commander’s Cross with Star of the Order of Polonia Restituta (2007). Though not canonized, some Eastern Orthodox Christians recognize him as a saint.
Sugihara was born in Gifu on the first day of 1900, January 1. He achieved top marks in his schooling; his father wanted him to become a physician, but Sugihara wished to pursue learning English. He deliberately failed the exam by writing only his name and then entered Waseda, where he majored in English. He joined the Foreign Ministry after graduation and worked in the Manchurian Foreign Office in Harbin (where he learned Russian and German; he also converted to the Eastern Orthodox Church during this time). He resigned his post in protest over how the Japanese government treated the local Chinese citizens. He eventually married Yukiko Kikuchi, who would suggest and encourage his acts in Lithuania; they had four sons together. Chiune Sugihara passed away July 31, 1986, at the age of 86. Until her own passing in 2008, Yukiko continued as an ambassador of his legacy.
It is estimated that the Sugiharas saved between 6,000-10,000 Lithuanian and Polish Jewish people.

Katt Williams on Dave Chappelle: “But Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us. And until we deal that. Until we deal with the fact that a devout Muslim was accused of being a crackhead. And until we establish the fact that they said he went to Africa to smoke cocaine when we know they don’t have running water and food over there. When they don’t have paved roads over there. You saying he flew past Chicago and Miami and LA and New York and Detroit, you saying he went past Cleveland and Fort Pierce, Florida, and he went past Okeechobee and Oakland, you saying he went all the way to another country where they not eating? You talking about somebody who has a wife and children, five children, and lives on a farm, he doesn’t live here in Hollywood. You saying you convince people that person was an insane crackhead? And he hasn’t been on movies and TV for eight years is that correct? Ok then don’t tell me about what you wanna tell me, I just watched you decapitate him in front of me… Then when he made 500 million dollars, even though his contract said he was supposed to get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid, so we’ll offer you 10% of what you made. You mean he made 500 million and they offered him 50? Yes. And he said, “what do you think my fans are gonna say? When they find out you offered me 10% of what I made you.” And they said, “your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home. And my nigga got on a flight in LA and by the time he got to Ohio it was so. And eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or television and is just now trying to do his real comeback in Radio City Music Hall. It’s bees like that sometimes.”

Wow. I didn’t know Dave Chappelle was Muslim 😃

Wow

I have always had respect for Dave Chappelle, he is an amazing and a very intelligent man that has been highly ripped to shreds by the media. I saw his show in Radio City Music Hall this year and he is still slaying with his mix of comedy and whit to this day.

So, my girlfriend wakes up in the middle of the nights sometimes, and if she notices I’m not close to her, she taps my face until I wake up and just holds her arms open and says, “Come. Warmth.” And then falls back asleep when I do as told.

this is the cutest thing ever

So I finished it… Build Nights! (Title Change Possible)

Some nights, I stay up trying to build a robot. 
Some nights, I brainstorm and draw. 
Some nights, I wish that my team could build this model 
Some nights, I wish this would line up 

But I still learn stuff, I still take some notes 
Oh Lord, I’m still not sure what this part is for 
What is this part for? What is this part for? 
Most nights, I screw up, and make four… oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh. 
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh 

This is it, team, here’s the score, what are we waiting for? 
Why don’t we read the rules already? 
I was never one to stay in the lines - save that for the frame design 

Build twice as much in just half the time,

But here they come again, to change the rules 

And that’s alright; We have a mentor on our team tonight 
He stops our brains from wandering the internet, internet, internet 
Oh, where’d the time go? mmm… mmm… 

Well, Some nights, I wish this would never end 
Cause I’m having some fun for a change
And some nights, I’m scared we’ll lose comms again 
Some nights, we always win, we always win… 

But I still learn stuff, I still take some notes 
Oh Lord, I still not sure what this part is for 
What is this part for? What is this part for? 
Most nights, I don’t know… (come on) 

So this is it? We spent six weeks on this? 
Washed our hands of grease for this? 
Missed our moms and dads for this? 

No. When I see bots, when I see, when I see bots that’s all they are 
But when I see ours, I know it’s the one, so come on 
Oh, come on. Oh, come on, oh come on! 

Well, This is it, team, that is all – ten matches in and the season ends 
Four years of this, I’m not sure if anybody leave 
This one is for all the ones that know; Sorry to leave, mom, I had to 
Go 
Couldn’t leave the robot alone, disconnected on a lonely field. 

My heart is breaking for my teachers and the things that I called “grades” 
Man when I look into my teammate’s eyes… 
Man, you wouldn’t believe the most amazing things that can come from… 
A couple zip ties… ahhh… oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh 
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh 

The other night, you wouldn’t believe the dream I just had about FRC 
About us and our winning team 
It’s for the best we start to listen 
It’s for the best we kept on building 
It’s for the best we start to listen 
It’s for the best we kept on building… oh…
