Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
so basically we want Donna back
why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain
no one tell him
There is a severe lack of holes in this ranch bottle.
#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…
I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.
The shade is real
i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.
The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.
Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.
I’m embarrassed and ashamed to add myself to the list of people who where taught that the noses “fell off” as a child and never once stopped to think about how incongruous that was to everything I had been taught about the Egyptian civilizations and their propensity for lasting works of art.
so in LOTR’s appendices it says that legolas eventually builds a boat and takes gimli across the seas and into the west, the gray havens. you know, the place arwen isn’t allowed to go because she’s in love with a human dude bUT LEGOLAS (AKA ‘YOU LITTLE SHIT’) JUST SAYS “FUCK IT” AND SNEAKS GIMLI INTO THE GODDAMN UNDYING LANDS LIKE CONTRABAND TWIZZLERS INTO A MOVIE THEATER
best literary analysis ever
being called annoying is literally the worst thing ever because then you’re scared to ever say or do anything again and you end up isolating yourself because you think everyone hates you and you feel insecure about everything. long story short pls dont call people annoying
My friend David had his ID stolen the other day
now we just call him Dav
I’m so mad
So I had ordered a lion statuette for a Pride award but something went wrong somewhere down the line and when it arrived it had only the rear end of the lion.
It was a catastrophe.
OH FOR SHIT SAKE
took me a second to get it
If you pull me on your lap there is a 101% chance I’m going to make out with you.
i would advise you to avoid santa
THAT GENERATES PUNS FOR YOU AND YOU CAN LOOK UP VIA A WORD OR PHRASE.
CHECK IT OUT, IVE BEEN LAUGHING AT IT FOR HOURS.
It’s not that it’s more effective, the fact that all animals have an even number of legs is a byproduct of evolution.
The most primitive animals (think sea sponge) don’t have any symmetry…they don’t have specialized tissues either…there’s no real blue-print for their body. But as animals got more complicated, they needed some way to lay out their body tissues. Initially, this was done radially. There was a center, and all tissues radiated out from that center. Jellyfish, star fish, those spikey things that I can’t remember the name of for some reason.
Radially symmetrical organisms are the only ones you could argue might have an odd number of legs (like starfish) but they don’t /really/ have legs at all.
Eventually, a new base blueprint arose that spread like crazy…bilateral symmetry. So, basically, there’s only one way you can slice me in half and get roughly the same thing on both sides. That’s true of the vast majority of animals.
Symmetry is easier for genetic evolution because (very basically) you only have to code things once to get it twice. There’s actually all kinds of examples of efficient coding…like the genes that code for each of your fingers and toes (which are kind of like non-2n little legs on the end of your legs) are almost all the same genes, just expressed slightly differently for each different finger and toe.
I’m getting off track…basically animals have even numbers of legs because they have bi-laterally symmetrical bodies because they are all related to each other and because symmetry allowed animals to evolve into more forms more quickly.
If you want to read about the specifics of how all this works on the genetic level, google “hox genes.”
