Anthony Mackie being the first black superhero (and making Bill O’Reilly uncomfortable) on Jimmy Fallon

This just annoyed me. Does Storm not count as a superhero? Does Halle Berry not count? Cause I would think that being able to control the weather and being part of the X-Men would make you a superhero.

The Falcon first appeared in 1969.  Storm didn’t appear until 1975.  He really is the first black superhero.

If you’re going by the movies, then Blade is the first one. That was 98, and X-men wasn’t until 2000

First African-American superhero, yeah.

First Black superhero? Black Panther, 1966.

Just to cover the comics base.

im really pissed that palindrome isnt palindrome backwards

Ah, yes but emordnilap is a word!

An emornilap is any word that, when spelled backwards, produces another word. Examples of emordnilap pairs include:

  • desserts & stressed
  • drawer & reward
  • gateman & nametag
  • time & emit
  • laced & decal
  • regal & lager

And therefore “emordnilap palindrome” is an emordnilap palindrome.

Which I, for one, think is really frickin’ cool.

dude

Really.

Some days, I wonder if google is actually a thing for people. Or just something mythical I made up in my head.

If you can take something as ultimately frivolous [as a comic book] in the cosmic scale of things in the universe and what’s important — people being born and dying and everything else that’s gonna happen today — if one gay kid in Shawnee Mission, Kansas, reads an X-Men comic and feels for a second like maybe they’re not entirely alone in the world — that’s amazing. I’ll take it. Whatever size victory that is, I will take.

Have I mentioned I’m a huge fan of this man and his work?

No?

Well I totally am.

Hey Ten, I'm 21 and I feel torn about wanting to date and the idea of dating. Like, I want to try dating and having a relationship but at the same time I feel that I'm not emotionally mature enough to maintain one yet. Not only that I find it really difficult to connect with others and have been told that it's because I have high standards and I should lower them. But I seen dating advice say be picky and stand firm because you know what you want which I stand by. What's your opinion on this?

fullten:

NEVER LOWER YOUR FUCKING STANDARDS 

Look, I see it over and over and over again. Girls lower their standards, end up with assholes, over and over and over again, and then Mr Luke Warm Decent Guy comes along and they treat him like he’s the fucking holy grail, when in reality, he is the most mediocre motherfucker to walk the planet, but because he’s not an asshole constantly, just sometimes, he seems sooo amazing. NO. Don’t do that to yourself. Keep your standards high, don’t touch the peasants. 

And relationships, is all communication, that’s all it is. It’s not hard work, people just act like it is, and if it is really hard work to stay together, then maybe these people shouldn’t be together. That’s all there is too it.  The person you are with should make you, not just happy, but amazed. They should push you to be a better person, they should be happy when you accomplish something, they should know all your demons and not be scared by them, their should be passion, and this person should set you on fire. Don’t settle for luke warm dude.

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."
