There are good reasons for any species to think darkly of its own extinction. Ninety-nine percent of the species that have lived on Earth have gone extinct, including more than five tool-using hominids. A quick glance at the fossil record could frighten you into thinking that Earth is growing more dangerous with time. If you carve the planet’s history into nine ages, each spanning five hundred million years, only in the ninth do you find mass extinctions, events that kill off more than two thirds of all species.
But this is deceptive. Earth has always had her hazards; it’s just that for us to see them, she had to fill her fossil beds with variety, so that we could detect discontinuities across time. The tree of life had to fill out before it could be pruned.

It’s a letter from a bunch of fucking turds demanding the government protected right to extend their biggotry into the workplace because the Hobby Lobby ruling opened the damn gates of legal precedent. It’s not a suit for that right yet, when it starts zipping through court systems I’ll shit a brick. It’ll be appropriate then, and I won’t be giving these walking piles of excrement a slightly larger platform to be heard from. Also, I don’t feel like being angry on my blog right now. I want to post con stuff and funny gifs. They aren’t welcome here. Not today.
Or sick of war, losing friends and loved ones. Because if I had to go through thousands of years of what Optimus has gone through I wouldn’t even HELP humans with the shit they do.
*edit: and he had like three movies before he lost his shit. that’s like ten years. It took him ten years to lose his patience with humans. Ten years is a long fucking time before someone’s patience wears thin. A LONG time before he got fed up with us, and a lot of other shit going on.
“There are real concerns about putting pictures out there into this bizarre world. I basically made a pact with the devil: I’d trade control for exposure. My gamble is that getting the photographs seen and making them part of the culture is worth more than any risk of residual loss because people are downloading (stealing) my pictures. I know they are stealing my pictures. Let them. I’m betting that the payback will come from wide exposure, not from tight control. I don’t know (yet) if I’m going to win the bet or not. But there it is.”—Jim Richardson - via How an Old School Photographer is Kicking Your Butt on InstagramPhotoShelter Blog
When Marvel Comics announced that their newest superhero would be a Muslim teenager from New Jersey, the Pakistani-American girl Kamala Khan, the New York Times headline read like it could have come right out of the pages of the Daily Bugle: “Mighty, Muslim and Leaping Off the Page”! After only…
some days i get really excited about the possibility of hollywood making a ms. marvel movie and then i remember they’ll probably just end up changing her name to ‘camilla cain’ and have elizabeth olsen play her.
In a perfect world Peter Parker will never say anything to upset or offend Kamala about her race or religion, and will do what he can to learn to be a good ally, however when it comes to NY vs. NJ, the gloves come off on both sides.
“Ammi and Abu taught me to always think about the greater good. To defend people who can’t defend themselves, even if it means putting yourself at risk. I wish they could see that that’s exactly wh…
