my grandma just walked up behind me and went “oh haha is that your korra cartoon”
That was super nice of them.
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.
American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”
Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O
It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.
I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.
I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).
They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.
Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work. That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming. I love this.
No but in the second gif she isn’t just leaning her cheek in—she’s leaning in to kiss him BACK like you can see her lips move like she’s expecting a kiss on the lips and then is like “Wait what?”
Ugh I just really love Hiccup and Astrid.
This is fucking beautiful. You can literally role play an asexual character and still have a romance where you don’t sleep with them until your character feels like it’s a good time as opposed to “We’re together? Time for the tent!”
let’s just cry
imagine being such a worthless failure of a human being that you steal a joke from a 25 year old garfield comic
Jurassic Park (1993)
Player: “What’s his name? John Lennon?”
DM: “It’s Elton Harper.”
Player: “…I was kinda close. Elton Harper to Elton John to John Lennon.”
DM: “He’s a level 1 human ranger…”
Player: “I really hope he levels up as a bard.”
