Taystee & Poussey: Realest Muthafuckin’ Friendship Begins
This tag is just too perfect.
WHEN I WAS
A YOUNG BOY
found my mom burning on the celing, so he vouched to find the thing that killed her, and so me and my brother grew up on the road and was taught how to kill monsters
TO SEE A MARCHING BAND
take your brother outside as fast as you can
Everything was ok, then this happened
shouts to all the band kids who worked really hard to master an instrument in high school and double shouts to the ones who wore goofy outfits and did it in choreographed steps like seriously that sounds outrageously difficult like poaching a perfect egg but yeah denny’s has yr backs and you’re welcome in our humble diners after any and every recital, concert, home game, et al.
man you’re great
they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it.
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck
Damn son I ain’t seen shit like that.
and in that moment, everyone’s heart broke
I love that Nikolaj is like I don’t even know you people and then there’s Peter who looks like he’s just standing there screaming
friendly reminder that if harry would have been a girl snape would have treated her like petyr baelish treats sansa stark ✿◕‿◕✿
#TELL ME HOW THE ARM WORKS #was thinking about this the other day; like so if the arm is actually made out of vibranium hence it being able to catch the shield #its lighter than steel but it still needs to have all those wires and equipping within it so it has to be heavier than a human arm #does that mean that they replaced his collarbone or breastbone or upper torso or whatever with some kind of metal alloy within the bones?? #HOW DID THEY LINK UP THE NERVE SYSTEM IS WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY #ALSO HOW DO YOU STOP THAT ARM FROM PULLING OUT HIS INNARDS #tell me how the arm works captain america 3 give me bad pseudo science talk dirty to me
