you know what i still really really love about cap 2?
that any other movie could have made a long sequence just of them breaking into fort meade to steal sam’s falcon gear, but instead it just trusted us to understand that in their world, that shit is basic.
like of course…
"I don’t need people to think for me. I’ve never been that way and I don’t ever want to be that way […] There’s no reason to argue because when it gets to that point, I’m just saying, ask me.”
This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
- do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
- works every time
"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
Microsoft Excel took a turn for the explicit this week when the Internet learned the once-innocuous office tool was being used in a dispiriting new bro-trend: using the software to track of the number of times their partners refuse sex. Yes, #sexspreadsheets are a thing, presumably because some men still believe that owning of a penis entitles them to unlimited sexy times.
Tumblr doesn’t realize people saying that ‘don’t fight hate with hate’ or ‘hate breeds hate’ is in response to a growing toxicity on this website. It’s not saying a person’s anger is unjustified.
It’s saying that bullying tactics and mob mentality is harmful, toxic, and only further regresses conversations. People who say that ‘hate breeds hate is oppression and silencing’ are often times people looking for an excuse for their harmful behavior.
it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
I lost it at the end.
Okay, I had to check out the Van Eyck thing. I was a bit in denial because, come on, every single person can’t look like President Putin!
There are no words to describe how wrong I was.
Reblogging this for my art history class this semester
