You know what never made sense to me about Mark of Athena? That chapter where Jason goes to meet Hercules and Percy is all jealous on the boat. Because yeah in Lightning Thief and Sea of Monsters Percy mentions his admiration for Hercules and how complicated he feels about wielding his old sword, but after meeting Zoe and learning more about Riptide and Hercules in general Percy explicitly mentions resenting Hercules. Was Percy upset he didn’t get to punch Hercules in the face? Because that would have made more sense.

It just felt so inauthentic to Percy’s development and relationship to Greek history. It was like it was only there to further push the Percy/Jason rivalry and let’s be honest everything about that dynamic is forced and inauthentic to both characters.

caligula had anime eyes

wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot

yep
here’s a statue of Augustus

and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored 


i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art

"I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"

And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.
Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.
(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)

My favorite Flash has always been Wally, but the new show is doing a good job of making me love Barry. Still, I just really really want Iris to like, mention her brother’s wife being pregnant, or even oh my god a babysitting day! I just want some kind of confirmation that Wally exists and is a happy little kid with a bright future ahead of him because as a Wally fan I have been extremely let down in recent history.

Wait does Iris even have a brother in this ‘verse? We haven’t seen any West brothers yet…

Please just let my baby Wally has even the potential to exist again

reverse werewolves. wolves that turn into confused but excited humans every month at the full moon and run around doing weird human stuff until they wake up the next day in the middle of an office with a suit loosely draped over their wolf form

Alpha werewolves excitedly crashing Home Depot and getting tons of hammers and wrenches and lumber all like I’M GONNA BUILD A DECK!!!

Theory:

Peter Quill actually only had trouble holding the infinity stone because he’s half Terran.

A fully human Terran would have done much better.

I mean, Jane Foster had the aether inside of her in Thor 2, and that seemed pretty potent (and potentially could have been another infinity stone, besides).

In fact, considering all of the mutants and badassery and whatnot that abounds in the Marvel universe, and the heavy-hitters Terrans can produce with just a little genetic tweaking or gamma radiation, it’s possible that Asgard took to ‘safeguarding’ Midgard in the first place because Odin figured out that the natives are scary as balls.

Maybe during the war with the frost giants, certain humans started manifesting strange/special abilities to deal with the threat, and Asgard’s scientists/wizards/etc figured out that the poor puny Midgardians were like a sleeping monster, and the aggression of the frost giants was ‘waking them up’.

So Odin stepped in to stop them and to try and keep people from interfering with Midgard as much as possible, so the monster would stay sleeping.

Which is actually part of why he is so very pissed off at Loki for the events of Avengers, and at Thor for bringing Jane to Asgard - it’s a very, very tight secret that Midgard is a powder keg full of potential super-warriors, and Odin does not want that getting out, and he does not want them getting out. If Earth can stay as a nice, quiet, backwater planet with very little contact with the larger universe, that’s safer for everyone involved.

Today in Racist Fuckery (10.7.16): These assholes will show out when they think there’s no one around to check them. Let’s see how many “Darren Wilsons” will turn up for #FergusonOctober. We ready. #staywoke #farfromover

Comments include “Let’s go Darren [Wilson, the officer who killed Brown],” “DAR-REN WIL-SON,” “We’re the ones who fuckin’ gave all y’all the freedoms that you have,” and “Pull up your pants.”

Gave us freedom.. Like they weren’t the ones who took them away in the first place.

Not shocked tbh

Is this really the atTe of humanity in 2014?

dr. king noted that civil rights marches in the midwest had a certain kind of danger to them that the south did not have, and in some ways made marching in the midwest and the north more dangerous. unlike in the south, where a handful of men would come to heckle marchers, in the north, huge crowds of white families would show up, outnumbering the marchers, and surround the marchers chanting slurs and raising the nazi salute. in a suburb of chicago, police were actually forced to protect the marchers from the growing risk of a riot by the white counter-protesters.

can we also note that in the middle gifs Bucky has proper trigger discipline and the fucking Winter Soldier has shitty TD so is it that Hydra made him give no fucks about gun safety because people are just collateral? I NEED TO KNOW IF THIS WAS INTENTIONAL ON SEB’S PART (via thescarlettfangirl)

this is an EXCELLENT POINT and I’m going to talk about it. in gun safety the first thing you learn is 1: do not ever point your gun at something unless you are going to shoot it and 2: do not ever put your finger on the trigger unless you’re going to put a bullet through something.

Bucky Barnes knows the importance of trigger safety. Bucky Barnes was trained by the US Army to never put his finger on the trigger unless he was going to absolutely shoot something

The Winter Soldier is a weapon. The only time the Soldier is ever given a weapon, he is absolutely going to shoot something.  It’s his mission. It’s all he does. Thaw, wipe, point, shoot, kill, freeze, repeat. It’s as natural to him as anything can be—a finger on the trigger and intent to kill on his mind

If a man tells you you’re pretty, it’s supposed to be this amazing gift you cherish forever.

If you tell a man you’re pretty, you’re a horrible, shallow, awful person and it isn’t true.
