TRIVIA (By IMDb)
The Script Originally Described The Gateway Machine As A Smooth And Featureless Black Orb Suspended In Midair Between Large, Rotating Mechanical Arms. It Also Was Said To Contain A Stable Black Hole Within It At All Times (Which The Ship Used As A Power Source), As Opposed To Briefly Creating A Temporary One. PAUL ANDERSON Decided To Redesign It To Involve Interlocking Circles As A Homage To The Puzzle Box In "HELLRAISER" (1987), Which Served As An Inspiration.
-
The Working Title Was "THE STARS MY DESTINATION".

The Fall of the Aztec Empire
148/365
August 13
---
The conquest of the Aztec Empire by the spaniards under Hernán Cortés is one of the most underrated campaigns in military history. Now, many of these conquest stories are tragic because it involves the destruction of an original native civilization. However, the Aztecs themselves were very imperialistic and brutal to the tribes they ruled over, so to a certain extend they kind of had it coming (although maybe not complete destruction like what ultimately happened).
---
Hernán Cortés was something like the lieutenant governor of Spanish Cuba in 1519 when he was tasked by the governor to lead an expedition to the Aztec Empire just to scout it out. Cortés was extremely ambitious and had come to the New World to make a name for himself. Even though it was a small expedition force, Cortés was going to try and conquer the Empire before the ambitious governor could do so with a much larger force.
---
Cortés only had 1,000 men, many of whom were loyal to the governor. To get them under his control, he had a few loyal to him destroy their ships. The only way off the continent now would be to defeat the Aztecs, and it would have to be under his leadership. Faced with no choice, his entire army bought into his command.
---
Over the next few years, this small spanish force would use diplomacy to unite the tribes under Aztec domination to turn these tribes against the Aztecs. With this united force, and laying siege to the capital city of the Aztecs (Tenochtitlan) the Aztec Empire finally fell. 870 of the Spaniards died, but the allied tribes would prove helpful in destroying the Empire. That was how an initial force of 1,000 conquered an Empire populated in the millions.

This came up on my Facebook memories this week and I couldn’t stop laughing. I constantly used humor to mask my insecurities. If I put it out there as a joke, it was more palatable to continue my unhealthy habits.

I’m still just as raw, and as genuine, as that beaming girl in the toilet selfie 2 years ago. The only difference is ~60 lbs. (Give or take a few lbs because that was a really good one 2 years ago.....🤣🍑💨) #bathroomselfie #proteinshakefail #proteinshake #stopdietingstartliving #stopdieting #healthychoices #healthyhabits #onedayatatime #optimalhealth #healthjourney #yoyodieter #onthisday #humpdaymotivation #blendedcoffee #bathroomselfies #begoodtoyou #youoweittoyourself #thisiswhyimfat
