I keep seeing these videos with people in bathing suits and t-shirts, tank tops. For me personally, when I bring awarerness to a charity, I prefer a more formal setting, so excuse me…

gods for the modern agehermes

walk where you will. heed no borders. make the roads and pathways your home, whether they be in the city or in the wild. get your message out however you can. always stop for hitchhikers; take them wherever they’re going, living or dead. and if you have to steal to survive, so be it. flip a coin—which way do you want to go?

gods for the modern agebaron samedi

laugh in the face of death. treat life like a carnival—chase girls, smoke cigars, drink yourself blind, and never pass up the chance for a dirty joke. keep the dead in the ground and the dying from harm’s reach. save lives, lift curses, hand out favours and come back to collect—and smile, smile as you dig the graves of those who wrong you.

Post reblogged from I wonder if I've been changed in the night? with 1,491 notes


Wow, OK, I had kind of conceptualized that Joss Whedon post along the lines of “here are some random thoughts that I’m gonna store behind a cut in case a few people are interested,” not expecting so many people to reblog it. But since there was so much interest, I ended up thinking about it more. And the direction my thinking took me in was this: what is it that women find attractive in male and female characters, and to what extent does this match up with what men assume that women find attractive in these characters?

lmao 2 years ago not even the majority of marvel comics fans cared about the guardians of the galaxy and now I’m seeing reading lists popping up left and right and RYAN FUCKING SEACREST said “I am groot” on national radio but NO ONE WAS ASKING FOR A GOTG MOVIE BEFORE IT WAS ANNOUNCED

carol danvers has a rabid fanbase that has their own name and that creators are scared of when they show up at cons. you think iron man had something like the carol corps when they decided to give him a movie? YOU THINK ROCKET RACCOON OR GROOT HAD A FANBASE CLAMORING FOR THEM TO GET A MOVIE????

get the fuck outta here with this weak “no one knows female superheroes like they know marvel’s big three” like DUH marvel has spent 6 YEARS making sure everyone knows who captain america, iron man, and thor are by giving them their own movies. stop defending kevin feige’s weak slimy bullshit you soggy-assed milkbags

Quote reblogged from Squash Tea with 6,190 notes

As Arnold points out, there is an otherwise inexplicable shift in direction in the Piccadilly line passing east out of South Kensington. “In fact,” she writes, “the tunnel curves between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations because it was impossible to drill through the mass of skeletal remains buried in Hyde Park.” I will admit that I think she means “between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner”—although there is apparently a “small plague pit dating from around 1664” beneath Knightsbridge Green—but I will defer to Arnold’s research.

But to put that another way, the ground was so solidly packed with the interlocked skeletons of 17th-century victims of the Great Plague that the Tube’s 19th-century excavation teams couldn’t even hack their way through them all. The Tube thus had to swerve to the side along a subterranean detour in order to avoid this huge congested knot of skulls, ribs, legs, and arms tangled in the soil—an artificial geology made of people, caught in the throat of greater London.

London and Its Dead

i read shit like this and think what could my imagination possibly have to add

like how do i write something about london that’s weirder than london already is?

If kid sis wants to grab a midnight stroll, she’ll find a way sooner or later. I just thought she’d be safer with Big Bad looking over her shoulder.

Quote reblogged from Looking for a path with 1,101 notes

I found empirical support for the idea that the Harry Potter series influenced the political values and perspectives of the generation that came of age with these books. Reading the books correlated with greater levels of acceptance for out-groups, higher political tolerance, less predisposition to authoritarianism, greater support for equality, and greater opposition to the use of violence and torture. As Harry Potter fans will have noted, these are major themes repeated throughout the series. These correlations remained significant even when applying more sophisticated statistical analyses – when controlling for, among other things, parental influence.

"Harry Potter did help shape the political culture of a generation" by Anthony Gierzynski (The Conversation)

Totally fascinating research into how reading shapes political beliefs.
