HEADCANON: ODIN SAYS THIS BECAUSE, WHEN HE WAS A TEENAGER AND FIRST GOT THEM, THOR ACTUALLY DID LET TANNGRISNIR AND TANNGNJOSTR COME UP TO THE BANQUET TABLE AND WAS ALL “THEY’RE NOT HURTING ANYONE :D :D :D” WHEN PEOPLE OBJECTED.
So now Odin brings it up constantly, whenever Thor brings home something he shouldn’t. (Ie, “Pet fire breathing baby drakes do not belong in Asgard any more than a goat belongs at a banquet table, Thor!!”)
I like this headcanon even more when you consider that in the myths Thor trained goats to pull his chariot. How much do you want to bet Loki bet him he couldn’t train them well enough to behave at a banquet?
I’m jumping on the “Tulio and Miguel look like Loki and Thor” bandwagon really late, but I couldn’t help myself.
That horse is two seconds away from jumping ship.
SWEET GOD ALMIGHTY MUIRIN I LOVE YOU MORE
Lavoisier is having none of your shit.
Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.
Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject.
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
Rebloggin’ for the fantastic commentary and the edit :)
AU in which everyone in Westeros makes good life choices Part1/?
The other night my six year old sister and I were watching CA:tWS together. We kept having to pause the final fight sequence so that she could clarify what was happening, and that got me thinking: What if I used my editing skills, dumped the entire 30-minute sequence into Premiere, and deconstructed it to what it would have been without the intercuts?
This is what happened - the original format of Steve and Bucky’s fight.
hopefully tumblr/vimeo doesn’t send me to jail for this
Is Bucky actually yelling "rotten bastard" at Steve while REPEATEDLY PUNCHING HIM IN THE FACE god someone needs to give me a shock blanket or something I’m in pain.
Apparently not, and he’s repeating ‘you’re my mission’? I swear to god I have listened to it with headphones on for like, 5 minutes
because I enjoy painand I still can’t make it out one way or another.
REGARDLESS, I want my shock balanket
stop playing the victim. that’s not even a real instrument
i will never forget this post
I CAME IN LIKE A WREEEECKING BAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL
