Hill: What does S.H.I.E.L.D. stand for Agent Ward?
Ward: Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
Hill: And what does that mean to you?
Ward: That someone really wanted our initials to spell SHIELD.

Things in Doctor Who that made me laugh
(more than usual[8/?]
    → ” The story of our lives”

Why is the term “friend zone” so popular when the term “unrequited love” already exists and is more accurate? I suspect it’s because it shifts the locus of responsibility. “Unrequited love” focuses on the person who has the crush. The feelings being discussed are the crushing person’s, thus the responsibility in on them to get over their crush and move on. “Friend zone”, on the other hand, focuses on the crush object’s choices. The phrase erases the agency of the crushing person. All blame for their pain is put on the crush object. “Unrequited love” is something that can happen to both sexes, but “friend zone” is a sexist concept that implies that women are solely responsible for men’s happiness, and not men themselves.

I don’t think writers realize that “strong female character” means “well written female character” and not “female character who punches stuff and shoots stuff”

For those like me who can neither afford nor be arsed to leave their house on a Sunday morn to buy a copy of the Times, my good friend Blogtor Who has been kind enough to summarise the interview here. PLENTY of food for thought. Opinions?

So according to this article in the AoU footage Natasha doesn’t even try to lift Mjolnir because “That’s not a question I need answering.”

My heart hurts.

I hope later in the movie, at some desperate, heat of the moment, thing she just goes to grab it as a weapon, does a quick double take when it lifts then carries on kicking ass.

Favorite Doctor/River moments [1/10]

#so can we talk about this more #how absolutely horrible the doctor feels in this moment #how careful he is with her hand #and how he immediately tries to fix it #regardless of the consequences #he just does the first thing he can think of #and the fact that he has control over his regeneration energy like that #only we never see him do that for anyone else #for river he’ll gladly spend it #no matter what it takes #to try to apologize in the only way he can #the way he looks at her #he’s realizing he’s failed her #and he’s trying so hard to fix it #he’s hoping this will work #but there are no quick bandaids #and that kiss at the end #he’s kissing her better #when have we ever seen the doctor like this with anyone else? #never #and river can’t accept his apology #because she’s trying so hard not to fall apart herself #because she did this to try and fix things for him #and now everything is falling apart #and this moment is just so raw between them #they hide from each other yes #but they also see each other in ways nobody else ever has #they see through each other (via goddessdel)

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.
