Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics (via nerdhapley)
It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.
True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.
Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.
Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.
And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.

"HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO FIGHT THIS THING"
*ten minutes later*
"that…was surprisingly easy."
*video game boss that is just normal dude with sword*
"ahhh this’ll probably be easy"
*ten hours later*
"fuck. shit. god. I can’t do this anymore. you’ve bested me. I will no longer play a game again. I have been disgraced."

MOSES BRIDGE, NETHERLANDS
It was originally built in the early 1700’s to protect the Netherlands from invasions. It is constructed out of Accoya wood, a waterproof wood. The designers assured that flooding will not be a problem because the height of the water is controlled an adjustable dam. The dam also includes a pump in case the water overflows.

fuck. this still hits hard.
This is the trash that’s going to be responsible for counselling people. My God, the mental health profession is already filled with enough assholes. *sigh*
and people wonder why we are sometimes reluctant to “just get help”
Fuck that guy(via thedirtyoldgentleman)
This is the picture that is being spread around Twitter that “proves” Michael was charging the officer.
1. Michael Brown wasn’t a skinny athletic white woman running the fucking 100m dash off blocks.
2. He had on flips flops. You ever tried running in some flops? Even if he had on sneakers, they aren’t track cleats that weigh next to nothing.
3.He had to have weighed an easy 200+ lbs. Do you think he could match the angle of her body considering THEY WERE DIFFERENT HEIGHTS AND WEIGHTS?
4. THIS ISN’T HOW PHYSICS AND GUN TRAJECTORY WORK AND COMMON SENSE WORK.
Stop it. Stop proving how stupid you are. It’s hilarious to see you try.
(TW: It’s on of the most idiotic anti-liberal Twitter pages I’ve had the unfortunate luck to come across)
dumbest post ive seen. OBVIOUSLY mike brown wasnt a skinny white woman, but he was a BIG 300 lbs black male. Everyone pumps their arms when they run. It’s how running works. so i dont see your argument in that. positioning all the same, except he was most likely standing up taller, not so bent over. If gun shots couldnt stop Brown advancing toward the officer, please tell me how his lack of adequate footwear would. You’re a liberal, how would you even know how guns work? How can you be so ignorant to this? All this new evidence is coming out, and you still refuse to acknowledge it.
Okay, Bethany, I’m going to call you Bethany because fuck you. And I’m going to explain this in a very slow and simple way for you to digest, okay, babydoll?
Alright! Let’s Go! We will start with a picture.
It’s the muthafucking scientific method! You remember this right? I’m kind of getting the feeling that you might not by the unstructured blogglob of a paragraph you spewed from your mouthhole, but we’ll just assume you do.
How this science thing works:
1. Ask a question. Could a 200lb+ be shot as the autopsy photos show if he was charging towards someone else?
Well, gee! I don’t know. Let’s continue to the next step!
2. Background research: What angle would he have to be in for the bullets to land in the places he was shot?
I still don’t know! Let’s try it out! We have to find a model for the problem….
(Finds picture of a athletic white woman frozen in one position.)
HOL UP HOL UP HOL UP WHOA DERE!
CLASS WE HAVE A PROOOBLEM!
You see! The way science works is, when you’ve asked yourself a question and are trying to prove it, YOU FIRST MUST REPLICATE THE PROBLEM.
You wouldn’t ask “Why white people age the way that they do” by studying an Asian. You would study a white person.
So, if the picture is of a skinny athletic white person and they are using that to prove how a 200+ lbs man was shot in the same place (with the assumption that 6 shots could be fired at the SAME DAMN TIME or timed so precisely that they land EXACTLY how the picture has it), GUESS WHAT? The square peg wouldn’t fit in the round hole.
DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUN.
Okay, class (and Bethany) what did we learn today. TO PROVE YOUR POINT, you can’t use an abstract example! (or be stupid enough to FALL FOR IT).
Now sit your silly ass down and shut up.
'Why white people age the way they do'
A snatching of a lifetime, bruh. Bethany, go home.
I’m in love with this gif. Everything about it. The rain drizzling. The candle flickering. The colors. I love it.

remember when the avengers was new?
remember how exciting it was to finally have some of our favorite superheros interacting in one movie?
remember getting chills during this scene?
remember feeling like a superhero when the screen went black and the credit music came on?
Please never forget how special The Avengers is.
