i’m so upset

I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb

they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!

I can’t

present active boōpresent infinitive boāreperfect active boāvīsupine boātum

Recte!

if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter

do they speak latin because it’s a dead language

This whole post is golden from beginning to end

Reminds me I should brush up my latin in case Ghost wants to say hi…

This is it.  This is the pinnacle of nerdom.  This is the greatest height of nerdery that has ever been reached before.

Peter in Loki’s body on a bus downtown to the real Loki and making an excuse that he’s going to a comic convention.

Never will such levels of pure fucking nerd ever be seen again, it’s just not possible.  This is a beautiful day, I am glad I am alive to experience this, god bless.

I’mma let you finish, but the pinnacle of nerddom is actually this sequence in the fourth issue of the 2005 Giffen/DeMatteis/Maguire Defenders:

Do you know who those fashionable gentlemen are? They are Dr. Strange and Namor. They are hiding for Dormammu on a ravaged Earth.

Do their outfits look familiar? That’s because they’re the same motherfucking disguises Kirk and Spock wear in the 1967 Star Trek episode “City on the Edge of Forever.”

You know why Peter Parker looks so downtrodden on that bus in his shiny-ass horns? It’s not because he’s trapped in Loki’s body. It’s because he knows his cosplay game will never be this fucking on-point.

IMPERIUS. MOTHERFUCKING. REX.

*drops mic*

*moonwalks out*

oh my god

HOLD UP

THAT WAS NOT THE NERD PINNACLE EITHER.

the highest nerd reach was on march first, 1999 in JLA when martian manhunter went undercover as a japanese woman only to have his real identity discovered by bruce wayne.

Why is the name the giveaway and not the fucking space green pant suit? because j’onn chose to name himself after the real name of fellow martian sailor mars:

this means one of two things. A: the jla and the sailor senshi live in one universe and bruce just knows everyone’s god damn business or way more likely that B: BOTH MM AND FUCKING BATMAN HAVE READ/WATCHED SAILOR MOON AND ENJOYED IT ENOUGH TO REMEMBER HER GOD DAMN NAME. KEEP YOUR CONS PETER, AND GREAT CLOSET COSPLAY  BOYS, DID YOU FIND THAT AT A THRIFT STORE? TIME TO GET OUT THE WAY BECAUSE J’ONN AND BRUCE GOT ANIME TO WATCH AND THEY HAVE NO TIME FOR YOUR BULLSHIT.

Martian Manhunter: Agent of Love and Oreos, the pretty skimpy suited soldier of Mars! In the name of Mars, he will out nerd you!

This post is gold

IT IS GETTING BETTER

When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.

you rock it, young feminist protesters. Fuck yeah, I am so proud of you.

Yes, they’re awesome.
But I think there is another part about this I like, too.  Notice the burden of that pain is being shared — made lighter by women committed to being here and helping.  They can’t fix it, of course but mutual support makes the burden lighter.
No wonder the patriarchy wants us in competition with each other…

We shall overcome some day

Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.

I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.

And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.

Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too.  These Space Valkyries  should have been left in.

They really should have.

WHAT.

THE.

FUCK.

I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.

Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.

I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”

DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.

These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.

Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.

reblogging b/c i too never knew.

OMG I had no idea! This is so important.

Hiya friends!

I know many people are confused and irritated about all of the stuff on Tumblr today regarding “internet slowlanes” and net neutrality. What is it? Why do I have to look at that spinning circle of death?  

Above is probably the best breakdown of the issue I’ve seen. 

Take a second and watch. Take another second and contact your representatives. This shit is very real and very scary. 

Knowledge is power.

The internet is power.

Don’t let them take your power away.

I already reblogged a version of this once today, but this one has a nice convenient embedded video rather than a link stashed in some text, so here you are again. And it’s worth reblogging multiple times.

This is important and FUCKING HILARIOUS XDDD The ending alone is a treat XD
