“Joss Whedon is a storyteller and you’re upset because he isn’t acting like a music box, playing you your favorite song again and again.” [x]
“He’s lived in the same house for 100 years, he’s stayed married to the same woman and he’s spent enormous amounts of time traveling with his kids - dedicated, exhausting traveling. He’s somebody who’s lived with the same principles all his life - they’re even part of his roles. I’ve never heard anybody say anything bad about him. He’s never been at the end of ugly gossip of any kind”
William Hayward, the son of Leland Hayward and Margaret Sullavan, about Jimmy Stewart
Honestly, after all these seasons, the Bad Wolf story arc is still my favorite.
Blood Falls, a Natural Time Capsule Containing a Unique Ecosystem
This five-story, blood-red “waterfall” pours ever so slowly out of the Taylor Glacier in Antarctica’s McMurdo Dry Valley. Geologists first discovered the frozen waterfall in 1911, and believed the red color came from algae. Its true nature turned out to be more spectacular.
Roughly two million years ago, a small body of water containing an ancient community of microbes was sealed beneath the surface of the Taylor Glacier. Trapped below a thick layer of ice, the microbes have remained isolated inside a natural time capsule, in a place with no light, oxygen, or heat.
The trapped lake has very high salinity and is rich in iron, which gives the seepage its red color. A fissure in the glacier allows the microbial subglacial lake to flow out, forming the falls without contaminating the ecosystem within.

Here are some awesome and empowering quotes from several very strong female celebrities.
And Kristen Stewart.
No, you know what? Fuck you.
Let me tell you about Kristen Stewart.
Let’s talk about how she’s the centerpiece of one of the most inexplicably popular misogynistic pieces of film shit and somehow gets blamed for it sucking, despite the fact that, hey, the books were actually worse. For those who were lucky enough to escape reading the actual books, her apparent lack of emotion is 100% accurate to Bella’s character, because Bella is in fact not a character but a blank white wall for fourteen-year-old girls to project themselves onto. Robert Pattinson is not the only one in the cast who hates Twilight, thank you.
Let’s talk about how she got crucified in the media for having an affair with a married man, when that man was her director. And let’s remember that she was called all manner of things for “ruining her relationship with RPattz” when she wasn’t even engaged to the dude, let alone married with kids. But oh no, she gets called a slut because she’s Kristen Stewart, she gets her career fucked because she’s Kristen Stewart, and the dude gets off scott free.
Let’s talk about how she is incredibly shy and anxious (rather, incidentally, like Chris Evans) but does film anyway, because she’s just that awesome.
Fuck your noise. She’s not the best actor in the world but she sure as hell doesn’t deserve that kind of shit.
Reblogging for original post… And
Circle and underline the Very True comment about how kristen stewart was crucified vs people giving the married man involved a free pass. Wtf?!
You want to talk about feminism?
How is doing something like that beneficial to women?
I don’t approve of cheating, but I approve even less of double fucking standards and women who perpetuate double standards on other women just because they dont like said ‘other woman’.
Our biggest “enemy” is not men, it is our perception and our treatment of other women.
