Steven Universe does it again!!!!!! Pulling the sword from Lion sure felt a whole lot like Utena! (And Connie would do a totally awesome Anthy cosplay.)
Grant us the power to bring the world revolution!
(Got the Steven Universe gif from www.theworldofstevenuniverse.blogspot.com.)
OK Let me tell you why this scene from the newest episode of Steven Universe was fantastic
So Pearl nonchalantly say “Oh, well hello Connie! What a surprise to see you!” Obviously from her tone it’s clear that they knew Connie was going to be in the temple when they got there, which is what makes the set up and their entrance to the scene so funny.
I’m assuming Garnet probably knew Connie was going to be at the Temple (what with her foresight and all) and told the others, which resulted in Pearl trying to convince them to make a good impression, which translated into “make a cool pose when we beam back”.This resulted in Pearl’s attempt at a ‘cool’ stance, Amethyst’s goofy mock-ballerina pose, and Garnet’s pigeon-toed “I’m very uncomfortable with this” stance, I mean, her face says it all.
"Pearl made us practice this for an hour before she said we could come back."
and then Pearl tries to casually play off their entrance like
"Oh Connie! We had no idea you’d be here, what a pleasant surprise!”
Look at this nerd.
"I told you we’d make a great impression. Didn’t I say this was a perfect plan? This was a great idea. I’m so smart."
Many people remember a fallen soldier as a person in uniform. Sometimes that soldier is also the four legged friend who saved lives by being a bomb-sniffing dog, finding the IED, and warning everyone about it before it explodes. This is a sad but beautiful picture of pure respect for 2 fallen heroes.
Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
At first I was like HOW IS NOBODY TALKING ABOUT THE BLUE PEOPLE UP NORTH???
… then I read the thing.
For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.
> Literal translation
Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”
Bird: “What’s wrong?”
Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”
Bird: “Okay, understood.”
Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]
Bird: “Okay, I understand!”
Owner: “Got it.”
> That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.
> Off-putting? It’s like birds were meant to speak Japanese!
> For some reason it’s never occurred to me that birds can mimic languages other than English. It’s so cool, though!
The world will soon understand why birds are so awesome and deserve to be our overlords.
holy shit that is one poorly bred dog
fuck the breeder who allowed this to happen
As rude as it may seem to say it, this dog is really ugly. The only other time I’ve seen an expression like that on a dog was when it’d been struck by a car and its skull had been destroyed. This isn’t a natural expression for a dog.
Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.
WHY IS THIS NOT HAPPENING?!
