Could you imagine if science was actually governed by public opinion
Imagine having to reject evolution because you’re a scientist in Texas
#THANK YOU#oh my god I’ve seen so many people on my dash freaking out that pluto is a planet again and it’s like uhh NO#it was just a vote by a bunch of civilians NOT a decision by scientists!#I was literally grinding my teeth every time I saw a ‘pluto is a planet’ post I came this close to commenting#and seriously I really really don’t get why people are so hung up about pluto being called a dwarf planet it’s not like there’s any shame it it it’s just a term for classifying objects in our solar system#and pluto fits a lot better with the kuiper belt objects composition-wise than any of the planets#cause we have the inner terrestrial-metallic-bodies#the gas giants#and then pluto#a weird icy outlier#like no#it makes much more sense to put it among the other icy kuiper belt objects#AND FOR FUCK’S SAKE WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ‘PRESTIGE’ THAT COMES WITH BEING CALLED A PLANET WHAT YOU’RE DOING WHEN YOU DO THAT IS BELITTLING ALL THE OTHER FASCINATING OBJECTS IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM DON’T DO THAT EVERYTHING IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM IS SO COOL IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT IT’S CALLED excellent tags (x)

Stephen Colbert wants to talk to you about your boyfriend.
When Colbert sat down for Rookie’s “Ask A Grown Man” segment, he did so as himself, instead of the brash character he plays on his show.

Pacific Rim, 2013
One of the greatest things about this quote (and this movie) is that it had all the potential in the world to spread the dark and terrible (and often truthful) idea that in order to fight the darkness, one must absorb some of that darkness. It was very prominent in The Dark Knight trilogy, especially as articulated by Harvey Dent: “You die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”
Pacific Rim doesn’t do this. Mankind bands together for a true world war. There are already enough monsters coming for them; they do not need to become monstrous themselves. The monsters they create are not beasts but guards and armor to protect, not universally destroy. The jaegers rarely deliberately destroy massive structures (remember Gipsy Danger carefully stepping over a large walkway and nimbly navigating between buildings during the fight in Hong Kong). The pilots in the jaegers are very human and imperfect but are still heroes. They may have created monsters, but they did not become them.
Everyone and their mother has lauded this, but it bears repeating: in Pacific Rim, mankind’s power is not in its capacity for destruction or power or control or harnessing its deepest instincts but instead in its humanity—its ability to rebuild, to persevere, to empathize and to understand.

The Prince of Egypt + Thor and Loki [ 1 / 2 ]
do you make grandiose speeches and perform a series of supernatural feats that result in a massive death toll, or do you… wait
Oh c’mon that’s not fair I mean Loki was recruited to carry out the bidding of a hitherto unknown supernatural bei —- wait.
Moses and Loki, there’s one comparison I never saw coming.
Well. That’s interesting …
Thought this could use a reblog.
If Hugh Jackman can deadlift 405 pounds, he shouldn’t have settled merely for Marius. He could’ve picked up Enjolras as well. You know what, add Eponine. Street gamines can’t possibly weigh that much. Man let’s just add the whole of Les Amis (including Gavroche). It’s Hugh Jackman. He can take it.
But when it’s Les Mis, deadlift suddenly becomes a lot more literal.
