Quick reminder that these are all real movies.

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open. 

OH SNAP this photoset shows those insane vertical obstacles, look at her go.

Fucking fuckers

  • me: (out shopping, looking all fly with my Marvel comics tote bag featuring several characters)
  • dude: nice bag.
  • me: thanks. (keeps on shopping)
  • dude: do you even know who all those characters are?
  • me: uh... yeah?
  • dude: ok then, who's that guy? (points at a character on the bag)
  • me:
  • me: wait, are you asking me to prove that I'm enough of a fan enough to carry this bag?
  • dude: (smirks) that's what I thought. He's called the Silver Surfer. I bet you don't even know his real name.
  • me: does it matter? (starts to edge away before I start punching throats)
  • dude: psh, you're not a real fan.
  • me:
  • me: (slowly unsheathing my Wolverine claws)
  • me: how many pairs of chromosomes do humans contain in their cells?
  • dude: uh... what?
  • me: explain the function of cellular mitosis?
  • dude:
  • me: what is the purpose of myelin sheath with regards to the formation of new neural pathways?
  • dude: what are you even talking about?
  • me: oh, well it seemed that you were implying that if I don't know as much about the Marvel universe as you do, then I can't possibly be considered a real fan. This is me implying that because you don't know as much about the human body as I do, you can't possibly be considered a real human being.
  • dude:
  • dude:
  • dude:
  • dude: Um, I... wow. You're right. Have a nice day. (starts to shuffle away)
  • me: his name is Norrin Radd.
  • dude: (looks extremely embarrassed)

Magnificent 19th-Century Library Shelves 350,000 Books

Feast your eyes on the elegant grandeur of the Real Gabinete Português de Leitura (known in English as the Royal Portuguese Reading Room or the Royal Cabinet), a 19th-century library in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Constructed from 1880 to 1887 under the direction of architect Rafael da Silva e Castro, the magnificent library has the distinction of holding the largest and most valuable collection of Portuguese works outside of Portugal, with over 350,000 volumes filling its countless bookshelves.
