in Fuckin' Bitch Friday

Look at this fine ass bitch:

hedy lamarr. 011I mean, goddamn. She was so stunning she was known as “The Most Beautiful Woman In Film.” She brought men to their knees, brought women to burning jealously. She fucking tore through men, through the silver screen, and through bullshit.

This is Hedy Lamarr, Austian actress.

Annex - Lamarr, Hedy (Conspirators, The)_01

Oh also,

THIS BITCH GAVE US WIFI.

ALL HAIL HEDY LAMARR.

Hedy Lamarr, in addition to starring in one of the raciest films of her time (Ecstasy), brought us the modern age as we know it. She invented a torpedo that changed the way the Navy did it’s thing. She invented a secret communications system that FUCKED UP SOME NAZI SHIT. It was called Spread Spectrum Technology, and it involved manipulating radio waves to create an unbreakable code. It was used in the Cuban Missile Crisis, and was critical in many other military operations. It was patented in 1941, but we didn’t recognize her for her contributions until very recently.

Oh also? It was the technology that allowed digital communications to come to life. Fax machines, cell phones, and motherfucking WIFI.

She was beautiful–stunningly so–and that seems to be all we remember her for. Fuck that. This woman brought us, in her spare time everything that made our technology work.

So, Know Your Worth. Know that no matter what you look ilk sand the perceptions that others have, you get to be who you want to be.

Wow, I had no idea about Hedy Lamarr’s scientific achievements. I thought she was just an actress. Thank you for posting this!

She’s so gorgeous. I miss that about movie stars. They were talented but they had brains on the side. Some of them still do today, but the others are just hopeless.
