Why is the moon so lonely?
“I'm sure you have many fascinating stories. Sworn to Renly Baratheon, sworn to Catelyn Stark, and now my brother. Must be exciting to flit from one camp to the next, serving whichever lord or lady you fancy.
- I don’t serve your brother, Your Grace.”
Thor 3 really needs to have a scene of Loki standing bare chested in front of a mirror, running his hand across his scar and then a flashback of what actually happened on Svartalfheim.
I love the Eurovision because the rest of Tumblr just sits around in various states of confusion and Europe is just like
let’s play a game called “are people being too sensitive about this issue or is it a legitimate problem and i’ve just internalized more prejudice than i thought”
ps you can’t win and the game never ends
this is so stupid
and the stupidity continues
Kenobi would rather talk than fight, but when there is fighting to be done, few can match him. Skywalker is the master of audacity; his intensity, boldness, and sheer jaw-dropping luck are the perfect complement to Kenobi’s deliberate, balanced steadiness. Together, they are a Jedi hammer that has crushed Separatist infestations on scores of worlds.

OH before I go to bed I should convey to you all the weirdest fact I learned today
I learned that when a caterpillar is metamorphosing into a butterfly within the cocoon, it is not, as I previously assumed, slowly growing wings and little antennae and whatever else. If we open a cocoon, apparently what we find is that the caterpillar has actually dissolved into a shapeless goo, from which the butterfly will be formed.
From which the butterfly is formed.
You can, of course, go the philosophical route with this: are they, then, the same creature, pre- and post- this complete reconstitution of the self? If the very brain, the nervous system, has been completely reassembled, how do we identify this as in any way the same?
So here’s the kicker.
Apparently one scientist figured he’d test this out by training a bunch of caterpillars to react negatively to a specific scent, which they would normally not react negatively to. This was all done prior to the cocoon stage.
And these butterflies. These post-goo, completely remade selves? They reacted negatively to the scent, too.
here’s the source for that
I want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi like my father.
