THESE PARENT BIRDS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL LIKE BIRDY DRAG QUEENS WITH FLAWLESS EYELINER AND THE BABY LOOKS LIKE AN UNFINISHED MUPPET AND I’M DEAD.

These perfectly done up geisha are just so proud of their strange little alien sock puppet.

this picture makes me happy

Every time I see this I think I laugh harder

They really do look so proud

So serious, so dignified as they bask together in the stupid looking lint monster that came out of one of their butts

I love this!

OH MY GOD YOU GUYS

YOU MAY NEVER COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS POST GETTING NOTES AGAIN

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and coward took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

Watch it in video

Ok I love this. As a mother people seriously DO NOT understand HOW hard it is. There are NO breaks, NO pay, and your bosses scream in your face, and puke & poo on you constantly. & that bitch laughing at the end… Don’t fucking laugh.. it’s the truth.

No no no no. Watch the video. the lady in the last gif is laughing because she realizes what’s going on. She goes on to give a message to her mom about how much she loves her and to thank her mom for all her hard work.

TL;DR: DON’T CALL PEOPLE BITCHES BASED ON GIFS UNLESS YOU WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO

that is all.

Can I just point out that the word subtext has now been used canonically in the show which would indicate that the writers know what subtext is and it’s canonically legitimate to discuss subtext?

The editing of the scene makes it very clear that not only are the questions about subtext and who gives a story meaning related, they’re the most important questions.

AND, though in the opening sequence it appears that Metatron is breaking the fourth wall (or, y’know, peering through the BIG GAPING HOLE THAT USED TO BE THE FOURTH WALL) and talking directly to the audience, he’s actually addressing Castiel, as we see when Cas snaps out of the whammy.

Considering that Metatron downloads ALL OF THE FICTION EVER directly into Cas’ brain—including the Carver Edlund books—that emphasis on subtext and making meaning, and that it’s up to Cas to decide for himself how to answer those questions, raises extremely interesting new fine questions about whether or not Cas will look at all that new information—which, again, includes ALL THE CARVER EDLUND BOOKS—with subtext and interpretation in mind.
