flower language has always been an intense source of disappointment for me

like, they all mean really generic things like “love” or “forever” or “i’m sorry” 

i thought you could combine flowers

like you could just send someone a bouquet and from the combination of hibiscus and posies and tulips they’d understand “the rebel leader is dead, rendezvous at the docks at 8, bring the dog, you will need lighter fluid and  a large tomato”

I really hope no one’s answered this for you yet, I saw this and got so excited that my obscure knowledge base might come into use.  I had to stretch a few flowers so to speak but Victorian flower language allows for alteration in meaning depending on colour, fruit, flower, bud, steam, leaves and thorns, so I didn’t feel I was too far out of line.  This message would work best as two bouquets bound together.  First red Nasturtium with no leaves (red denotes a leader, the nasturtium a patriot) mixed with white or red Mask Flowers (rebellion, red if you want to emphasize fighting, white martyrdom) around Cypress (death).  Then Chick weed (rendezvous) and Blue Convolvulus (night) surrounded by eight White Popular Leaves (symbolises the time: eight), Yellow Iris (flame, and a flower that grows by rivers) and Yellow Prarie Dock Flowers (this was closest I could find to docks)and one large Tomato Leaf, all bound in Dogwood Bark.  Dogwood represents deceit, but as far as I could find the bark wasn’t used symbolically, and as you referred to the dog instead of a dog, I thought it was likely the pun should be a dead giveaway.  

So there’s your rebel message!

my fav part of gotg was when peter quill told that alien girl “i honestly forgot you were even here.”

it’s like james gunn was talking directly to me, a girl in the audience who was trying to enjoy the media he clearly created for only the boys in the audience.

The most annoying part of this scene is how easily it could have been used to establish Peter Quill as a) into aliens, b) into really casual sex, and c) normally kind of careless about his sex partners without it being at the alien girl’s expense.

I mean, you have Bereet crawl out of the cabin going “What the fuck, dude?” and him go “Whyyyyyyy are you still here, you packed up all your stuff so you could sneak out before I woke up, you said you had to get up early.” and she’s just like “Wait, what time is it shit did I sleep through my alarm goddammit.” and then two seconds of awkwardness because neither of them can remember the other’s name.  It would communicate almost the exact same things about him, but putting them on an equal footing would siphon a lot of the lazy assholishness out of the writing.

Here we go

Jane suggested Thor read Lord of the Rings since some of it was inspired by Norse mythology. Thor’s reactions to it have ranged from him having intellectual discussions about the cultural importance of myth and language to throwing Clint into a snowbank to see if he is as light on his feet as an elf.

Headwings

copperbadge:

So, the other night I shared the picture of Steve where he not only put his bandages over his uniform, he poked holes in them for his wings to stick out:

image

[From Avengers #45, 2001, try to ignore that he’s also riding a hovering wheelchair.]

And someone remarked that maybe they were actually attached to his skull, which given this x-ray image of him talking on the phone, would not actually be that implausible: 

image

[From Captain America #308, 1985.]

I remarked that they could be like Namor’s ankle wings. I don’t think Namor’s ankle wings actually give him enough lift to fly, but they’re more like, semiotic indicators that he CAN fly, or little steering wings, or something. 

Anyway the upshot was that if the wings on Steve’s Captain America uniform were actually wings that he had growing out of his skull, and he just kept them folded up under his ‘do most of the time, maybe it was because some of Namor’s blood instead of Wolverine’s was used in making the Serum. Which would mean Steve could theoretically fly. 

I like the idea that Steve could fly but didn’t tell anyone, because when he does his little headwings flap frantically and it just looks silly.

A mother helicopter tends to her newborn.

I wish you’d do some research before just spouting out any old crap. If you took two seconds just to LOOK at the picture, you’d see that it’s not a mother and her newborn. You can tell from the size and position of the rotors that it’s actually a hunting male. Also it’s a commonly known fact that whilst all helicopters are born with red tails, this fades to white in males, by the time they’ve reached adulthood. In females, the red has changed to a deep brown.
So this isn’t a lovely picture of caring parenting - in fact, this young ‘copter’s mother is probably dead, herself. There would be no way she’d leave her baby by itself at such a young age. The poor thing likely died mere moments after this picture was taken.
Have some respect.

You ignorant fool.The common Red Tailed Boeing you’re basing your analysis on is endemic to Saudi Arabia, which has no climate zones even remotely resembling that in the picture. Helicopters being short range vehicles, there’s no way a Red Tail could be present in the picture above.What you’re seeing is the red tailed variety of the Arboreal Russian UTair, which you’d know if you so much as looked at the distinctive markings on the parent’s flank.The photo is a mother tending to her newborn as I stated, and you Sir have defamed the endangered helicopter with your inept observations. People like you who think Helicopters are dangerous hunting animals are why these noble beasts have been scrapped to near extinction. Arguments like yours are used to support the helicopter “blading” industry, in which millions of helicopters every year are deprived of their rotor blades and left to die of oil loss or starvation.Support your local anti-blading protest group, and don’t listen to people like metalheadadam, if that’s even your real tumblr url.

No,it is you who are the fool here. You say it’s an arboreal helicopter, but no Russian Utair has ever been spotted out in the open in a tarmac environment before, and I think if this was the first photograph showing one, there’d have been some fanfare about it in National Helo-graphic.
I believe that what we can see here is the Lesser-Spotted Longbow, which, as has been very well-documented, has adapted itself superbly to urban life, and has also been known to disguise itself as other types of helicopter, in order to better stalk its prey. If you look at the smugness of the nose, you’ll see I’m right. Yes, the UTair is a peaceful contraption, but the LSL is a rapacious fiend, and should be removed from the world’s airspace completely.

You’re ignoring the clear signs here but the more important issue is your sickening disregard and characterization of the LSL as a “rapacious fiend.”The LSL is a critical part of the airspace ecosystem. If there were no LSLs, then Piasecki H-21s would quickly grow out of control and soon the air would be downright cluttered with them. Do you want to live in a world where Piasecki noise sounds through the night at deafening levels? Where they land on the streets as you drive and on schoolyards where your children play?Lesser-Spotted Longbows may seem dangerous but the fact is they kill less than five people a year across the globe. Piaseckis kill 80! And they crap all over the windshields of all those unfortunate enough to drive beneath them. Even still, we should not cull Piaseckis as some suggest, their meat is inferior and no significant research is to be done on their flesh. You’re operating from an old world point of view here, one that says mankind has the right, nay the duty to hunt and tame helicopters.But the truth is, helicopters are our neighbors on this planet and they have every bit as much a right to it as we do. Support prohibition of industrial helicopter use, police helicopters and circus helicopters. Don’t eat helicopter meat. And donate generously to PETH, People for the Ethical Treatment of Helicopters.
