Walked into the computer lab, and saw this.
Those who say the Black Widow’s fighting style is just movie bullshit can see the above. ^ Shit is terrifyingly real.
I think I’m in love.
She’s so tiny.
But she could kill me.
I will reblog this flying head scissors every time it comes on my dash because it’s so fucking awesome.

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'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left
and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off
Also, the dude behind the counter just nonchalantly making shawarma for the goddamn Avengers like they come in every day.

I’ve reblogged this about five times already and I dont plan on stopping
Some followers suggested this to me.
The island known as the “island of madness”, “hell” and “the most haunted place on Earth” is being sold!
Here’s a quick, history behind it:
The plagued people were shipped off to Poveglia Island, a small, secluded land mass that floats between Venice and Lido. There, people lived out the last of their wretched lives together until they died.
Since the island already reeked of death, the next time an epidemic came along, barely alive bodies were dumped there and burned in mass graves.
In the 20s, a mental hospital was built to welcome the island’s newest “guests,” or anybody that showed symptoms of any sort of sickness, physical or mental.
Basically, if you had an itch, away you went to Poveglia where you’d sink your feet into the soil (half dirt, half human ash) and be in the company of over 100K diseased ghosts.
It didn’t help when the place was converted into a hospital for the mentally ill in 1922. Rumor has it, the hospital was home to a number of crude lobotomies, performed by a doctor who’d been driven mad by the ghosts. He later flung himself off the bell tower.
The Italian government is now offering a 99-year lease to whomever’s brave enough to take it over. The italian government thinks it would make a great hotel destination!
This is not a painting - it’s a real place right on our planet.
During the rainy season, the world’s largest salt flat becomes the world’s largest mirror. The Salar was born when several prehistoric lakes joined into one. The salt flat is so reflective, it’s used to calibrate satellites.
These uniquely tall and thin mountains are so alien that they were used in James Cameron’s “Avatar.” Formed underwater 380 million years ago, the flow destroyed surrounding sandstone, leaving only resilient stone pillars. Some of the columns have reached over 4,000 feet above sea level.
These sentinels are actually giant trees covered in snow and ice. This strange sight occurs in winter, when temperatures range from -40 to -15 degrees centigrade.
This 240-meter-long cave system has been one of Guilin, China’s most popular attractions for over 1200 years. The beautiful stalactites, stalagmites and pillars were all created through water erosion. In the present day, they are highlighted by multi colored lights which create a truly surreal environment.
Ice caves are temporary structures that form at the edge of glaciers when flowing water melts a hole into glaciers. The tightly packed ice has very few air bubbles and absorbs all light except for blue, giving the ice its unique color.
This canyon was formed by millions of years of flowing water that carved out a deep, yet narrow crevice. Since significantly less light makes it down to the deeper depths, the walls often appear to be different colors.
It may look normal during daylight, but at night, this beach comes to life. The sparkle in the water comes from marine microbes called phytoplankton. The galaxy they paint across the shore is nothing short of breath-taking.
Lake Baikal is the oldest freshwater lake in the world. In the winter, the lake freezes, but the water is so clear that you can see 130 feet below the ice. In March, frost and sun cause cracks in the ice crust, which results in the turquoise ice shards we see at the surface.
These colourful rock formations are the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits laid down over 24 million years. Wind and rain then carved amazing shapes into the rock, forming natural pillars, towers, ravines, valleys and waterfalls.
Thousands of tiny glowworms hang to the ceiling of this grotto and radiate a luminescent light, creating a scene straight out of a sci-fi movie.
Over millions of years, the hotsprings in Pamukkale have transformed the landscape. Although it may look like these terraces are made of ice and snow, Turkey has bikini weather all year round. The ground is just coated in white limestone.
Due to its extensive habitat of fauna and flora, this flowing river appears in yellow, green, blue, black and red as you travel along it. The rocks here are around 1.2 billion years old, and those who visit call it the most beautiful river in the world.
Formed by thousands of years of waves crashing against calcium carbonate, these caves have smooth, swirling walls, which reflect the lake’s azure waters.
Strong ocean currents continually drive sand from the shores of Mauritius into the abyss below, creating this one-of-a-kind underwater waterfall.
The isolated highlands of Iceland have some of the most superb natural sights in the Northern Hemisphere. The mind-blowing glaciers, craters, lakes and geysers are breath-taking by day, but when night falls, the area becomes one of the best places to witness the aurora borealis.
Plitvice National Park is the largest of its kind in Croatia and the oldest in Southeast Europe. Over thousands of years, water flowing over limestone and chalk created natural dams and eventually, beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls.

I would have posted the entire thing, but I didn’t want anyone to get annoyed over infinite scrolling, so I picked out my favourites to post. Really, I just wanted this on my blog as this is where I keep all the amazing things I find for easy access. As well, I added the Ban Gioc-Detian Falls.
This isn’t a creepy fake image. This is real.
This photo comes from a series of photographs from the archives of Utrecht`s university hospital documenting medical conditions in the Dutch town of Utrecht.
It is not certain what this specific person had.
But isn’t it crazy and upsetting that they had to live like this?
And just a warning if you are going to view the archive of photos, they are pretty gruesome. Not for the sensitive.
Dining Etiquette Around The World, an infographic by Restaurant Choice
via Feel Design
are these relevant or clichés to you?
this is very interesting and fascinating. i know from personal experience as a korean also not to stick my chopsticks upright in rice because it resembles incense at a funeral and is considered to be an omen/bad luck
How about I just eat my goddamn food and you not be offended by it. Goddamn Nazi dining tactics.
Das called being an ignorant lil shit.
I’ll also eat my food how I’m comfortable, but this post expresses the vast cultural differences involved in something as simple as dining. It’s educational and interesting, not a fucking rule book.
That said, you’d actually be surprised how many cultures actually take dining etiquette seriously, yet a lot of people where I live hardly know how to even hold a fork.
It is an etiquette lost with modernization. Actually, most etiquette is lost with modernization. So I goddamn respect the people who still appreciate it.
this game is bullshit, you have to go through a tutorial until level 18, and your stats start to go down after level 30 not to mention the romance mini-game is hard as fuck
sadly the PVP is a lie. You get a debuff called jail
it also fails to mention that once you hit level 18 it actually does have a monthly fee and it’s really fucking steep. but at that point everyone’s too invested to quit playing so ugh yeah
I don’t even get to choose anything about the initial details of my character.
Pff the graphics really suck, I needed to get a third party program just to make everything focus.
If the character they give you isn’t the right gender, the patch is expensive as hell and takes forever to install
I thought I was really good at this game, but there are millions of people better at it than I am. ::::/
I died ONCE and they closed my fucking account what the hell
All the travel takes for fucking ever too. They desperately need to patch in some sort of teleport system.
Don’t even get me started on how boring the endgame is.
everyone in the game keeps arguing over whether or not there’s an admin or not and its really annoying
