I’d like to point out when Scarlett talks about spying on people and she says it’s cute when there are two married grown adults with kids, she mentions between her and Jeremy.
you two are adorable and weird.
Clear difference between Airbenders and Earthbenders right there. I love it
Post with 1 note
It will be those times when you are on the phone, and you have to ask your supervisor something or whatever so you mute the mic, so the person on the phone can’t hear you but you can hear them
and then they start singing to themselves really quietly
I DO THAT GUYS
I didn’t know other people did too
and now that I know that sometimes the phone-people can hear you, I’m going to do it more, since it makes my day when it happens
I’m going to my house for a party with my loud, annoying family. I love them though. :D
gallium you crazy bastard
ridiculous melting point
you’re a metal, act like one
FUCKING GALLIUM IS A BADASS
How can a man like John Green write something as gut-wrenchingly heart-breaking as tfios
and then throw himself against a wall to test if he is an octopus
Because he is a complex person and should be imagined as such.
A complex person who may or may not be an octopus. (I haven’t heard the results of the throwing-against-the-wall test.)
Corgi Supergroup Covers ‘Call Me Maybe’
Corgi pop singers have joined the barrage of fans covering Carly Rae Jepsen’s runaway hit “Call Me Maybe.”
Corgi Rae, a dog supergroup assembled for just such an occasion, has released the video above, and it’s taken the Internet by storm. The recording features Spike Kitty on keys — a huge get for an up-and-coming dog band.
Let’s face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that writers write but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce and hammers don’t ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn’t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
If teachers taught, why didn’t preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn’t a race at all). That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.
