Summer Glau rehearsing for Serenity

I really love that she fights like a dancer.

Probably because she was a dancer. So all of that grace and strength and agility needed to do ballet came out in the fight scenes, making them so beautiful and fluid.

Obama on gay adoption 


yeah totally ruining this country what a horrible guy

Fun fact: Obama has attempted to fix almost everything that he promised to fix, but the republicans have voted almost all of his bills out of congress. He’s not the problem.

He really has. His foreign policy could use some help though.

Exactly.

What researchers discovered was surprising: Those who are described as ‘agreeable, conscientious personalities’ are more likely to follow orders and deliver electric shocks that they believe can harm innocent people, while ‘more contrarian, less agreeable personalities’ are more likely to refuse to hurt others.

The study also found that people holding left-wing political views were less willing to hurt others. One particular group held steady and refused destructive orders: ‘women who had previously participated in rebellious political activism such as strikes or occupying a factory.’

Make A Bee Waterer And Help Hydrate Our Pollinators

Imagine how hard just one bee works in a single day. Bees tend to at least 2,000 flowers daily, with tiny wings beating 10,000 times per minute, carrying pollen, and dramatically assisting our food supply.

Sound exhausting? Bees get thirsty, and they need safe water sources. The problem is water is not always available.

Bees need very shallow water to drink from. However, shallow water evaporates quickly. Birdbaths are not the best option as bees tend to drown if the water is not be shallow enough. As for river and lakes, bees risk their lives trying to get water in the presence of fishes, frogs, and other wildlife, not to mention the risk of being swept away in water currents.

To help hydrate our little pollinators, set up a water feeder by filling a pie pan with marbles and then water. The marbles give the bees a spot to land so that they don’t drown when they come to drink. No more drowned bees!

AH THIS IS GREAT IM DOING THIS

I am doing this immediately! I already have a birdbath and a butterfly water sip, this is the perfect addition to my flying-creature-friendly patio garden (work in progress).

like does marvel actually understand i will spend my life savings on nat romanoff merchandise if they give her a movie

First they have to understand that we would spend our life savings on it if they ever fucking made the merch in the first place.

Maybe if they understand that, they’d make the fucking movie already?

GIVE US A BLACK WIDOW MOVIE, MCU. GIVE US MERCH TO BUY. I HAVE MONEY AND NO IMPULSE CONTROL.
