When watching a show I don’t think ‘Well politically correctly there should be two more minorities’
I’m thinking ‘This is suffocating, this isn’t what life is like, why do i not exist, why do my friends not exist, what the fuck is with this idealisation of one type of person?’
Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
And, of course:
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."

i feel my american-bred sense of entitlement the most when i get annoyed that the ‘united states’ is sorted in alphabetical order on a drop down menu and not just listed at the top
Tony Stark’s granddaughter, Rhodey Stark:
[From Avengers #24, 2013.]
We don’t know for sure that she’s James Rhodes’ descendant; she could just be named in honour of Rhodey.
BUT COME ON that is totally Rhodey’s granddaughter.
You know what that means, right? This means that one of Rhodey’s offspring married one of Tony’s offspring. Dear god, can you imagine how he took that news? Poor Rhodey.
Either that, or mpreg. I prefer my version.
In theory, at least if we go by patriarchic naming conventions, it means that Tony’s son knocked up Rhodey’s daughter. I’m sure Rhodey was thrilled.
Or Tony’s daughter kept her name and passed it on to her daughter; that’s very Stark.
Either way I feel like Tony and Rhodey had a conversation at some point that involved shotguns.
I’m still partial to my theory that Tony spent three weeks up in his lab trying to figure out how to splice their genetic code together

Me and my mutual followers that never seem to actually talk but we like and reblog each other’s posts:
"Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence."
This is basically a post for people who think that the world is accessible for those who are disabled, although this is centred around those who use a wheelchair.
And this doesn’t include when people park in disabled spaces without a badge, or question those who park in disabled spaces who don’t use a chair.
The first picture is of a disabled parking space, where the snow has been pushed into that space whilst people were clearing the car park. This also happens when snow ploughers push the snow to the side of the road and onto the pavement as it blocks the dipped down pavement where wheelchair users can get on/off of the pavement and most wheelchairs struggle to be able to push through the snow.
The second picture is of a lift/elevator in Boots a store in the UK, where there are baskets and cases in front of the lift, which block wheelchair users from using it and accessing other levels in the store.
The third picture is of a zebra crossing with a lowered pavement for wheelchair users, and there is an island in the middle with a normal height curb, which blocks wheelchair users, and it means they have to go around, along with having bollards near the entrance which don’t look wide enough to fit a wheelchair through.
The fourth picture is that of a ramp, which has a step in order to get onto the ramp. (I’m pretty sure they didn’t even try.)
The fifth picture is of a ramp with a tree in the middle, which doesn’t have enough room on either side for a wheelchair to get through.
The sixth picture is of a very very steep ramp, which even if you have someone pushing your chair you probably won’t be able to get up it!
The seventh picture is of a disabled parking space, which has a ramp leading to the entrance, which again has steps in order to access the ramp.
The eighth picture is of ‘disabled parking’, where non of the spaces have room to allow chairs to get out of the car, except at the back. They are just normal spaces where a blue sign has been placed in an attempt to make the parking ‘wheelchair accessible’.
The ninth picture is of a reception desk which is too high for wheelchair users to access, as they can’t be seen, due to the fact that they are smaller than the desk.
The final picture is of a ramp which only goes halfway up the curb, essentially meaning there is a step at the top of the ramp.
If anybody still thinks the world isn’t staked against those who are disabled, then I honestly worry about you.
this message made me feel alive
