"So this guy, Chris- well, Christopher Columbus, sailed the oceans blue then found America and put settlements all over it. But the people who already lived there, the Indians, were starving. So Chris threw them a feast!"
— A kid from North Carolina on Omegle explaining Thanksgiving to me when he thought I was from Ireland.
"I picked up “The Hunger Games” thinking it was written at my regressed reading level. I’ve spent hours reading it, and I’m not even halfway through. Our bass player, whose name is also Nate, ended up reading all three novels and loved them. He was really underwhelmed by the movie. He was upset that they focused more on the killing than the government control, political aspect of it. What’s most appealing to me about the book is that I’m not going to finish it."
Plot twist: Glee has terrible continuity.
The opening scene with the street merchant was completely unscripted. Robin Williams was brought into the sound stage and was asked to stand behind a table that had several objects on it and a bed sheet covering them all. The animators asked him to lift the sheet, and without looking take an object from the table and describe it in character. Much of the material in that recording session was not appropriate for a Disney film.
"Combination hookah and coffee maker, also makes julienne fries! It will not break! It will not- …. it broke."
that line used to just kill me as a kid and now it’s better because it was unscripted and he probably broke the prop
The incredibly talented and super smart Evan Rachel Wood called out the MPAA on their misogynistic, sexist crap after seeing the new cut of her movie and she ain’t wrong.
So front row the dragon is right above us aaaah
Front row seats at #Wicked!
The collision between the Milky Way Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy.
the grand showdown
Andromeda is a bit bigger than us. So when that happens, Andromeda’s black hole is gonna consume our black hole in a vicious act of galactic canabalism.
Which is an actual term used in astronomy apparently.
“Galactic Cannabalism” sounds like an electro/death metal fusion band.
Galactic cannibalism is one of my favourite astronomical terms, but it doesn’t beat the term used for the stretching out into a long thin tube that occurs when something falls into a black hole (spaghettification) or the term used for a rock thought to be a meteorite but which later turns out to be an ordinary terrestrial rock (meteowrong).
fuck astronomy remains to be my favorite thing
apparently we’ll survive this
This is one of the many gems you can get for free on the iBooks store.
I made a sweater to wear for Thanksgiving.
