I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
oh humans, this was a joyous fight, you are all welcome to Asgards weekly war!
best part of the whole movie
What you folks don’t realise is that this isn’t just Chris being Thor, this is Chris Hemsworth being every Australian after a bar crawl on a Saturday night, full of booze and merriment, staggering into the closest Kebab shop and chowing down on some oozy, bready, meaty deliciousness.
That’s not acting. That’s doing what is a National Sport.
I think I fell on some flowers here in the future.
I love that, in that episode, the crew basically took Wesley to a giant orgy, and they’re all, “Go play ball and watch titties outside, we’re gettin’ laid.”
The crew of the USS Enterprise 1701-D, everybody.

Jeremy Glass, We Can’t Get Lost Anymore
i’m so sick of seeing people trash this generation for no other reason than that things aren’t the way they used to be. there’s this constant vitriolic stream of people snarling that selfies, check-ins and blogs are the death of culture, and i am bored of it.
the human desire to record and document experience is hardly new. without that urge we wouldn’t have art, music, dance, theatre. the world of electronics evolving around that to give us an even broader scope of options to preserve our unique view of the world and share it with others is a beautiful thing. despite a legion of cynical naysayers constantly shouting otherwise, i’ve not actually become immune to earth’s beauty or my own experiences in it. stop being terrified of change and development and calling it profound.
Last line bolded for emphasis
Additionally, I’m not losing my sense of adventure every time I Google something, I’m feeding my thrist for knowledge. I have easy access to the most information that humanity has ever amassed, and you want me to not use that? Because let’s be real, my ancestors who had a “sense of adventure” were actually far more restricted in their travel. I can travel more widely and more cheaply than any point in human history, and you’re trying to imply that my “sense of adventure” has died because of the very technology that has made that possible?
Actually, how about this: my “sense of adventure” is tempered by the responsibilities and anxieties I carry far more than Google or check-ins or hashtags. My “sense of adventure” is tempered by the money I have (or rather don’t have) in my bank account. My “sense of adventure” is tempered by what society has taught me about traveling alone at night. My “sense of adventure” is tempered by the fact that a girl from my high school went on an adventure and ended up murdered, and whose family is still seeking justice because of the negligence of the local police department. My “sense of adventure” is the same as my ancestors’ “sense of adventure,” and it not this nostalgic retelling of history.
And how many of these naysayers have actually taken a trip like Steinbeck or William Least Heat-Moon? How many of them have jumped off a bridge? How many of them feel free to benefit from iPhones and Google and cell service and Instagram, but then criticize younger generations for taking full advantage of the world around them?
We can’t jump off bridges anymore because it’s against laws passed by older generations. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean because it’s against laws passed by older generations, and adventures aren’t a reality for us because they often cost more money than we have. Technology has made travel more cheap and widespread than ever, and we helped destroy it when we weighed an entire generation down with the responsibilities of another.
Last time I checked jumping off bridges all willy nilly leads to a little thing called death as well, just sayin’
Also, if you ever shit on the omnipresence of maps via smartphone or gps device as losing our sense of wandering whateverthefuck, I will personally come vomit in your shoes. I used to be TERRIFIED to drive into a new city or a new part of a city, because what if I got lost? What if I couldn’t find the only street names I knew to get me where I needed to go? Etc. etc. etc. Now? Now I get a bit tense about it, but I’m not scared the way I used to be, because I know that if I get lost all I have to do is pull over, grab my phone, orient myself, plot a new route from where I am, and I’m good to go. If I’m feeling more adventurous or spontaneous, I can wander a bit without checking my map app, but the thing is, when I do that, it’s that I can CHOOSE to be lost now, because I don’t HAVE to be lost. Technology has made me feel safe enough to go on adventures because I now carry a personal lifeline to any information I could possibly need, right there in my pocket.
Also does this dipfuck really think people turn down opportunities to go do fun shit just because they can’t instagram it? Really? Jesus.
I love all the commentary above. Also not to mention that technology has made LIFE more accessible and safer for deaf people, and for people with other disabilities, as well.
Never mind for us poor fucks, Google Earth might be the only way for us to experience distant countries and see how they’re laid out and shit. I can zoom in on the street my Dad was born on in Germany, or the part of Malta where my Grandmother lived, or the little town in Scotland my Mum grew up in. You know, places I only had grainy old photos of previously, and heard about from my parents.
Technology is a boon. My nieces have smartphones, but you can bet when they visit I do something to engage their attention, so that they don’t even think about their smartphones.
There were seriously people, back in the day, that bemoaned radios and records. And before that it was the dangers of reading too many books. It happens every generation.

I’m so glad to see the younger generation waking up to this hypocrisy.
The homeowner at 22 one is killing me.
I KNOW SO MANY PEOPLE LIKE THIS
MANY RELATED TO ME
WHO DO NOT GET IT
The fact that both of my parents are exactly like this is depressing
Cannot reblog fast enough.
They don’t even fucking know.
