Happy birthday, JK and Harry!
“Together we will build and teach,” the four friends decided.
Mars. In true colour.
Just so you know, a lot of images of Mars which you’ll see have been manipulated. A lot of them have boosted contrast and saturation. So if you’ve ever wondered – images like this one are what Mars actually looks like.
Why does this not have more notes?!?
YOU ARE LITERALLY LOOKING THROUGH THE EYES OF A ROBOT ON ANOTHER FUCKING PLANET
If you don’t think that’s the tightest shit, you can get out of my face.
i wanted to reblog this so that everyone who sees it can realize just how amazing this is. you are looking at a photograph taken on an entirely different planet. an entire world that has been completely untouched by humanity until only recently. no human in the history of mankind has ever look at those rocks, the soil, the mountains, and the sky until now. and until we finally manage to set foot there for the very first time, no human has ever seen mars from this perspective with their own two eyes or feel the texture of the martian soil on the bottom of their boots. this was only possible by creating a robot, an actual robot, and shooting way out of the reaches of earth and with extremely careful calculations, have it safely land and deploy right where they want it. it’s a robot on another planet being controlled 225 million kilometers away, seeing and studying and sending information for us.
this is the sort of thing you would see in science fiction movies that are only a few decades old. what was only imagination and possibilities back then is now all in this photograph. im looking forward to see what happens in the coming decades
I’m so infatuated by this.
225 million kilometers away and we got it on film that blows my mind
This isn’t what the real Mars looks like, the real one’s in 3-D
Your assignment today is to just look at this for at least sixty seconds without a break.
Happy 34th Birthday Harry James Potter, July 31st 1980.
It’s over. It’s done.
Episode 64, Part 1: Jane Fairfax
It seems as though people are really misunderstanding Jane and her side of the story. I feel sorry for her, because her frustration at the situation is well-founded, and people are calling her a “bitch” for “yelling at her boss”.
How else could she get through to Emma? Jane is just a private person, and though Emma’s tried to get information out of her (what’s Frank Churchill like? Who gave you the computer and flowers? Are you seeing someone?), she doesn’t really make the attempt to know Jane and spend time with Jane. Most of Emma’s information of Jane, in book and in EA universe, comes from Maddy. So if I were Jane, I would have reacted the same way.
And I’m sure, POSITIVE, even, that Frank got all sorts of hell from her. Got everything she gave to Emma and then some. I wish we could have seen that, so that we know to what lengths Frank will go to make amends.
In which my handwriting gets even smaller and messier.
Wow, a lot is going on this week. But I’m finally done.
I like how Melkor’s is all “Dude, he’s asleep, let’s go break his stuff. Soooo not facing him awake.”
Now I know where Dwarves go after death, maybe that will make the last movie easier to cope with…? Nope.
Now the only question that remains is “Who made the hobbits?”
