im such a linguistics nerd so i just started thinking of when you start talking to someone new online and you have to learn all their personal tone indicators and what :) or any other smilie actually means to them and how after a while you can tell when something is wrong just because they type something differently than normal and we all just learn and adapt to this type of communication so quickly to make these wonderful online friendships and its kind of amazing

i guess the real question is how can you not like tesla

he thought women would eventually rule the world because we’re the dominant sex

he liked pigeons

he was a vegetarian 

he was a babe

he was shy

he hated edison 

he’s perfect

Yup, as long as you’re ok with that time he went bonkers and tried to build a death ray.

Are you serious the death ray was the best part

I’ll just leave this here

Whenever marvel references other movies, or connects the dots, I feel this tingling in my chest and it makes me so happy.

Say what you will about restrictions on sex and violence in films, censoring movies did have at least one positive effect: It meant that writers and directors had to work harder to keep the audience’s interest. This can be painfully obvious when it comes to female characters. Irene Adler, for example, was a complex, clever antagonist who outsmarted Sherlock Holmes in the 1891 story she appeared in. In the 2012 television adaptation, Irene has morphed into a one-dimensional seductress who first appears on screen in the nude and who flummoxes Sherlock with her boobies. And why not? A good chunk of the viewing audience is going to be satisfied with having a naked lady on the screen, so there’s no need to waste energy giving her a personality. “Your lines? Hell, I don’t know. Just make some grunting noises or something.”
When Cracked thinks something is up with your portrayal of women, something is definitely up with your portrayal of women. (via yonderdarling)

Suck it.

This headline and article had me fuming. They focus the readers attention on appearance again - rather than the good the person (in this case, Anne) is doing. I think it’s disgusting how newspapers pick us up on little details such as our makeup - rather that just report good deeds. Does anyone remember seeing the articles about the actress who saved people from drowning, yet all they focused on was her nipples that slipped out as she pulled them from the water?
Stop focusing on appearance and forming your articles in such a fashion to gain attention, it belittles the good that others do.

We really need to mention her lack of make-up? Really? She flew to Tennessee to spend the day with patient’s in a children’s hospital. Let’s focus on that.
