The press has a field day the day they decide to get matching tattoos. (“Mori and Becket: Will they ever get over their Ranger years?” “Matching tattoos, matching rings?”) But it’s Newt who’s the most excited about this, giving them his tattoo parlor’s address, going with them, filming when they get inked. The video goes viral on YouTube. The tattoo artist is booked for the next three years.

the artist is like ‘where you want it?’ to Mako and she’s like ‘with this arm I drew the sword that avenged my family so right here please. To symbolise my new family. Thank you.’ and Raleigh just hears that and his face does The Thing and the artist gets to him and is like ‘OK hotdog - where’s yours?’ and Raleigh is just ‘MY HEART - IT GOES OVER MY HEART’ and basically doesn’t take his eyes off Mako the entire time they’re in there (yes Raleigh speaks in all caps) (now excuse me for a moment i need to set myself on fire) (via harrietvane

If DC ever paid me to do a Batman story it would look like this, and it would probably be about how Batman is pretty insane and can only convince teenagers to team up with him.

Yogventures, an ambitious video game project helmed by a group of YouTubers called The Yogscast, raised over $567,000 back in 2012 to make what they called “the game you’ve always wanted.”

Last week, the developers of Yogventures announced that they had cancelled the game, and that backers would not be getting refunds. So what happened? Where did the money go? Let’s break it down.

owned

yeah they made like one demo video w/ the game and then never spoke of it again; the only part of this that surprised me was that it took them this look to officially cancel it. :V

Anonymous asked: So does every dude have a thing with Mitzi?? Cos seriously

lackadaisycats:

She’s fixated on her deceased husband.  She has history with Zib.  She made an attempt at something with Wick (though it didn’t go at all as planned), and Rocky chases her approbation with unsettling application of zeal (arguably, something he’d do for anyone who’d give him the time of day). Certainly not all of her associations (Viktor, Mordecai, Asa, Freckle to name a few) have a romantic slant, but that’s beside the point.  Mitzi is a central character who pursues and maintains a complex of relationships in a criminal, male-dominated business.  It’s rather the crux from which the story branches.  
Does that seem problematic?

Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.

Door to hellIn 1971 Soviet geologists started drilling a hole in Turkmenistan’s Karakum desert when after a while they ran into a cavern filled with gas. Just after they started storing gas the cavern collaped into a 70m diameter hole. Thus, geologist decided to… wait for it… light it on fire! The geologist figured it would be best to burn it off instead of other expensive methods to retrieve the gas. Also, they were afraid of poisonous gases being released. Burning methane is indeed better that letting this greenhouse gas loose in the atmosphere. However, their idea was that the gas field would only burn for a few weeks.. To date it has been burning for 43 years and shows no sign of stopping. The hole is also known as ‘the door to hell’. From the nearby village of Darvaza (literally door to hell, most likely this village was named after the hole caught fire otherwise it would be a strange coincidence) a golden glow can be seen over the hole. Darvaza is, however, not the longest burning fire in history. The coal mines under the town of Centralia in Pennsylvania has been burning for 50 years, after supposedly the fire department decided to light up the town landfill in 1962 to clean up for labor day. Unknowingly they ignited a coal deposit under the city. Centralia is now a near-ghost town with only few resident living there. By far the longest ongoing fire is located in Australia at Burning Mountain (also known as Mount Wingen).
