Did you know that: Spain actually had financial problems due in part to a combination of many things, one of those being the inquisition combined with a poor fiscal policy in general. The economy was just plain weak. The colonies in Italy were actually not the most important or the largest area of focus in comparison to the vast amount of land that the Spanish empire held across the entire world. And the Southern Italian people were severely mistreated and unhappy. The Spanish rule had negative effects on the Southern Italian economy and infrastructure and held it down rather than help it any.
In Hetalia: Spain’s financial problems were caused by spending all the gold from the Americas on helping Romano.

Actually, that can be explained with ~SCIENCE~
The sketchiness of line art mimics the natural lack of clarity in our peripheral vision. When we look at the real world, our high definition fovea can only focus on a small area at a time. By having a very clean line art, it creates the unnatural feel of high clarity over a large area that’s not possible when we look at real life, therefore line art tends to appear stiff and not as appealing as the sketch. This sketichiness technique was first utilized by impressionists to create an optical illusion of motion (along with other techniques like equiluminance).
Reblogging for an interesting bit of SCIENCE.
Fuck me, I KNEW there was a reason! FUCK YOU, SCIENCE, YOU ASSHOLE
EVERYTHING CAN BE EXPLAINED WITH SCIENCE
SCIENCE! WHAT CAN’T IT DO!
