Women's History Month Day 19 of 31: Harriet Tubman 🚣🏿♀️🚂🕵🏿♀️
Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some thirteen missions to rescue approximately seventy enslaved people, family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped abolitionist John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry. When the Civil War began, Tubman worked for the Union Army, first as a cook and nurse, and then as an armed scout and spy. The first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war, she guided the raid at Combahee Ferry, which liberated more than 700 slaves in a single night.
Despite her years of service to the Union Army, she never received a regular salary and was for years denied compensation. Her unofficial status and the unequal payments offered to black soldiers caused great difficulty in documenting her service, and the U.S. government was slow in recognizing its debt to her. Tubman did not receive a pension for her service in the Civil War until 1899.
#SPYfact : The CIA once implanted microphones into cats in a bid to turn them into covert listening devices. Project Acoustic Kitty was launched by the Agency's Directorate of Science & Technology, in the 1960s to use cats to spy on the Kremlin and Soviet embassies. In an hour-long procedure a veterinary surgeon implanted a microphone in the cat's ear canal, a small radio transmitter at the base of its skull and a thin wire into its fur. The cat was released nearby but was unceremoniously struck by a passing taxi and killed. Project #AcousticKitty cost an estimated $20 million.

WHHYYYYYYYY!?! Why make this movie? Honestly no one asked for it. Yet they gave it to us just like the uncomfortable socks I got for Christmas. This movie is about Mater becoming a spy and stopping a conspiracy about oil. This movie's dialogue is so bad it feels like a 6 year old playing spies. Also, the characters feel like a lifeless hollow shell of the old Cars characters. Plus unlike other Disney movies, the humour is lack luster at best. I watched this movie with my little siblings last night and even they were bored. The only redeeming quality is the animation, that's it. I give it 3/10 #cars#pixar#lightingmcqueen#cars2#badmovie#moviereview#movies#movienight#disney#Disneyland#spies

Spy fall 2. One of the funniest games I’ve played. Everyone picks a card with the same location on it, but one person picks the Spy card. The job of the Spy is to guess the location through a series of questions. You can’t be too vague or too detailed in your answering. Needless to say I fail every time! #spyfall#spyfall2#deduction#locations#spies
