The next pet we get will be a tortoise. Those things live forfuckingever.

This is good because they are cute and our children can ride them. And they come with their own armor.

Happy Father’s Day, Nifty America!

Tony being a dork and entering every room just before Bucky does so he can loudly announce that winter is coming

He is a Stark, after all.

jelllypop said: What is your response to the people who say shit like "why didn't the eagles just fly them there in the first place LOL" ?


There are two reasons.

The first reason can simply be explained with this awesome shot of Mordor:


You know what that shit is? That’s at least 3 Nazgul riding Fell Beasts, and the ENTIRE FUCKING ARMOR OF MORDOR. 

Yeah no big deal, just fly in and somehow manage to get past ALL THAT SHIT? Hell no. Sauron would have fucked that shit up so hard.

The only reason the Eagles were able to save Frodo and Sam, was because everyone fucking died. The army was either,

A: At the Black Gate thanks to Aragorn, or


After the destruction of the Ring, Mordor went fucking belly up, and fucking killed EVEN MORE MINIONS OF SAURON. That’s the only reason the way was clear enough for the Eagles. Because everything fucking blew up and everyone DIED.

And the second reason is that the Eagles literally don’t answer to NOBODY. They don’t have to do shit they don’t want to.

Look at the Ents. Even Treebeard at first is like “yo this shit ain’t our problem.” That’s how the Eagles feel. They were created by mothafuckin Manwe. MANWE. They are basically super awesome demigods that don’t have to do shit that anyone tells them to. They just don’t think that shit is their problem.

They had to deal with Melkor’s bullshit back in the first age already! They already had to save Middle Earth once. And all they want to do is live their happy super awesome Eagle lives without Morgoth or his stupid fucking fanboy Sauron CONSTANTLY FUCKING SHIT UP.

The only reason they go to save Frodo is probably because their homeboy Gandalf asked them too, because oh yeah he’s also totally a Maiar spirit sent to CONSTANTLY DEAL WITH MELKOR AND SAURONS BULLSHIT. The Eagles and Gandalf probably have some sort of IOU system going okay? They already saved his ass from Isengard. AND BEFORE THAT THEY SAVED HIS ASS, AND A BUNCH OF DAMN DWARVES.

Peter Jackson says it all in the DVD commentary. The Eagles are not Middle Earth’s taxi system. They are fuckin awesome giant eagle demigods and they don’t have time for your bullshit. 




No really. Watch this.

Ancient Chinese instrument, the sheng, which originated back in 1,100 BC, and it can perfectly replicate the music in Mario.
