Races of Middle Earth as Hogwarts Houses
Each ball weighs differently, causing each one to bounce to a specific height, and when precisely placed in the dust pans and thrown down… 2013
EVERY TIME this comes up on my dash i just sit here and stare at it FOREVERRRRRrr.
Reblog while you can, the year’s almost over D:
this gif is the definition of a science boner.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK THIS IS NOT REAL SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN I’M GOING TO LEARN YOU A THING
THE MAN THROWING THOSE BALLS IS RUSSIAN PING PONG CHAMPION ANDREI ROCHEVIK. HE HAS PERFECT COORDINATION WITH THESE BALLS AND HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THEM SINCE HE WAS A FUCKING TODDLER. WHAT WERE YOU DOING AT 3 YEARS OLD MOTHERFUCKER
EACH BALL WAS MADE FOR THIS DEMONSTRATION SPECIFICALLY. THEIR WEIGHT IS CALCULATED BY RUSSIA’S BEST MATHEMATICIANS. YOU THOUGHT CALCULUS WAS HARD. TRY ADVANCED ALGEBRAIC PHYSICAL MATHEMATICS. THEY KNOW MORE ABOUT MATH THAN YOUR FUCKING CALCULATOR. THEY GRADUATED TOP IN THEIR CLASS. IN THE WORLD.
THE ROOM IS A VACUUM. THERE IS NO AIR TO GET IN THE WAY OF THESE BALLS. THE ROOM IS PERFECTLY PERPENDICULAR WITH THE EARTH’S GRAVITATIONAL PULL. ANDREI HAD TO WEAR A MASK TO BREATH WHILE DOING THIS. WHEN THEY WERE FILMING THE GAS MASK BROKE AND ANDREI ALMOST DIED. BUT HE DIDN’T HE SURVIVED AND FINISHED THE PROJECT
SO CLOSE TO DEATH HE IMMEDIATELY RUSHED TO PROPOSED TO HIS BOYFRIEND. THAT’S RIGHT HE IS ALSO GAY. BUT LIVING IN RUSSIA HE COULDN’T GET MARRIED SO THE FOUNDATION FOR PING PONG MATHEMATICS PAYED FOR HIM TO MOVE TO CANADA.
NOW HE’S LIVING IN QUEBEC WITH HIS HUSBAND AND THEY ARE TRYING TO ADOPT A CHILD. WHEN HE WENT TO APPLY FOR AN ADOPTION HE IMMEDIATELY GOT TWO CHILDREN WHEN THEY RECOGNIZED IT WAS HIM.
KEEP LIKING AND REBLOGGING THIS POST TO GET ENOUGH ATTENTION SO THEY CAN RAISE MONEY TO DO THIS FOR 2014. TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO SAY THIS IS FAKE. WE NEED TO SIGNAL BOOST THIS PEOPLE
jeff you are so smart this is why you have a masters degree in ping pong and also a doctorate in smartypants
That’s What She Said - A queer, Asian-American web series following the lives of 5 friends in Los Angeles. Created out of a desire to see positive Asian representations in the media, as well as to give voice to the often untold stories of queer Asian women, the series chronicles the lives of five fictional characters – Leslie, Rae, Shin, Baby, and Nic – within the queer sphere of the greater Los Angeles area.

I thought girls didn’t like Super Heroes.
You thought what?
Also, bless five-year-old girls who can confidently pronounce the words ‘cybernetic enhancements’ because they’re so interested in superhero adventures that they saw no obstacle to learning anything at all to understand them better.
And can do it wearing a pink flower headband, if they feel like it.
GIRLS LIKE SUPERHEROES. GIRLS LIKE COMICS. GIRLS HAVE LIKED THESE THINGS FOR AS LONG AS THEY HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE TO LIKE.
(behold, three girls and one boy avidly reading new comic books in New York City, 1947, photographed by Ruth Orkin)
What girls don’t like is when they’re patronised, and herded towards titles designed according to what grown men think girls are supposed to like, and ignored with regard to titles that those men assume are just for boys and men. What girls don’t like is not being allowed to choose for themselves what they like.
This is not a new concept. This is noted in Chaucer. What every woman most desires is to choose her own way.
Every now and then, we have to give the body a break from excessive pounding (running, dance classes, and contact sports). Luckily low-impact workouts are typically easier on the body, especially our joints, and can be a great way to get in a heart-pumping workout while reducing the risk of injury. The guys at Greatist have rounded up the best 21 low- (or no!) impact exercises to keep things varied. They’re perfect for when you’re just getting started, dealing with an injury, or just want to try something new! Check them all out here.

ALWAYS REBLOG NATASHA FUCKING SCHOOLING LOKI FUCK YEAH
okay let me say a thing
this isnt only Nat being super fucking clever and using her femininity and the stereotypes that get slapped on her from birth because she has a vagina to her advantage
this is also her being ridiculously intuitive
she didn’t need anymore clarification of Loki’s plan other than “you brought the monster”. That phrasing could mean that Loki was just taking a jab at Bruce on the chance he’s listening or that he wants to upset Natasha.
But hell to the no Nat is so good at reading people, understanding them and all tons of other hella cool shit, that she knew what he was planing from one scentence and the way he said it
she wasn’t even looking at him
she was facing away
she couldn’t read his body language
but she still fucking knew exactly what was going down.
Sherlock wouldn’t be able to do that
Sherlock uses deduction and he would have needed more to go on
Natasha Romanoff is so fucking great she can practically read your fucking mind
She used cold hard logic and knowledge on this shit but you know what else she did?
trusted her goddamn instincts
And she trusted them so hard she gave away her game, let him know exactly what she’d been doing so she wouldn’t be able to do it again if she had gotten it wrong because there
she was wrong
Bow down to the fucking queen in a catsuit
I know its a jumpsuit shut up and let me have my alliteration jeez
I’ve never used the word “exasperating” in my vocab ever.
Lmaoooo he said “buy me some earplugs too”
He is too grown lmao 😂😂
Lololol this was hilarious
And he used it CORRECTLY
😂😂😂 lil man is NOT excited 😂😂
OMG I’m crying he said what kind of baby is it and gave the strong ass point he so serious right now he is not having any of his mothers shit!
Lmao get him some earplugs. He’s so shady
😂😂😂 my kinda kid
India’s Academy of Sorcery boasts an impressive display of flashy colours, from enchanted saris that shift colours sporadically throughout the day, to the lavishly painted exterior of the academy which is situated in a nondescript location along Ganges River. Due to the frightening rate at which the school’s ancient mango tree (jokingly nicknamed “Mammoth Mango Machine”) produces mangoes, students have to endure the perpetually evolving art of mango cuisine at least five days a week. Every year, to the students’ great enjoyment, classes are halted for Diwali to make time for various competitions that take place: firework flourishes and charms for upper-year students (bonus points if it doesn’t set any part of the school on fire), and lantern designing for lower-year students (use of animals, alive or dead, is forbidden).
Black Male Excellence.
Click the link! I love this!!!
Still so cool, every time I see this. But… I dunno about him being the only one who does this. There are blind people who mountain bike - and lead tours where they teach this - solely using the same technique.
This is true! My brother dated a girl recently whose father was blind, but he talked about being able to use echolocation to find his way around stuff, too, and he used to mountain bike and drive motorcycles all the time.
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
remember that time the mcu had a complex, multi-faceted, morally ambiguous poc character steeped in social allegory and the fandom reduced him to ‘motherfucker’ jokes and pulp fiction references
