Motherfuckers will be like “wow I love complicated, tortured characters with tragic pasts” while talking tearfully about wanting to hug Loki for being tortured by Thanos.
And then you collectively ignore Gamora who went through the same thing for even longer while making a stronger decision about her life and you’re leaving Gamora out of almost all Guardians of the Galaxy posts.
I see you.
"I really love complicated adopted sibling relationships with ambiguous morals," the fandom says, looking at Thor and Loki and pretending that Nebula and Gamora aren’t right fucking there
SPREAD THIS LIKE WILD FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!
SISTERS DOIN’ IT FOR THEMSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"we’ve normalized guns and violence through video games….yet we still find tampons and menstruation unspeakable"
^^^that right there.

This has been my favorite quote since 9th grade
I think that even harry doesnt know what a cappucino is
I mean, the reason is pretty depressing. Hermione’s had a muggle upbringing, Ron’s had a wizard upbringing, Harry’s had neither.
THIS TOOK A FAR DIFFERENT TURN THEN I EXPECTED
IT GOT BETTER
AND HERE WE HAVE SUPERNATURAL IN A FUCKING NUTSHELL
So we have an Italian exchange student at our school. And he and I were hanging out and he saw a pony, and he tried to show me but he didn’t know what it was called so he just pointed at it and said “Look, the compressed horse.”
And then he just grinned at his complete understanding of the English language.
when they tell their kids how they met
by the way did I ever tell y’all about the time I got a blank message from nobody, sent on new year’s eve in 1969, when the internet didn’t exist?
because that happened
What the fuck
Or maybe its from 2069, when we’ve developed the technology to send data to the past. You sent yourself a blank message as a test but as the email address you used to send it doesnt exist yet, it came up as no sender
OKAY KIDS, LET’S LEARN ABOUT THE UNIX EPOCH
So back in the early days of computers, when we were trying to build clocks to keep all our computers in sync, we tried a bunch of different ways to synchronize them in ways that both normal people could use and programmers could utilize.
We just tried saying “The current time is THIS date” and just storing that date as some text, but while that was easy for humans, it was a bunch of different numbers that worked together in funny ways and computers don’t play nice with a bunch of random, arbitrary rules.
Not much worked, until we realized that we needed a BASELINE to compare against, and a way to represent the current time that covers everybody. So we came up with Unix time, because Unix was the style at the time. Essentially, Unix time represents any given time by saying “How many seconds ago was 12:00 AM on January 1, 1970 in Iceland somewhere?”. Recent enough to keep the numbers relatively small, far enough that nothing computer-y would fall before it, and consistent enough that there’d be no discrepancy based on where you are.
So what happens when you see the date “December 31, 1969” on a buggy message like this is that the computer received a bunch of zeroes by mistake and went “Oh, this must be a message!” Then when it tried to interpret it, it got to the date, found a zero, and said “Zero seconds since the Unix Epoch? I’ll round down - this was sent at the last second of New Year’s Eve, 1969! They’ll be so happy to finally get their blank message.”
And then the computer traipsed off on its merry way, because computers are fucking ridiculous.
This is frankly more hilarious than the 1969 time traveler theory
I fell through the wall this weekend. I am really proud of that! I showed up at the shoot and I’ve got bruises and they’re like, “You look so rugged!” And I’m like, “Yeah, I’m a badass.” Then I had to tell them it was a fake wall.
