I think that a lot of the reason Jarvis has become so human is because Tony treats him like he’s human. Tony talks to Jarvis in a very colloquial way. He says “you up?” when he knows damn well that Jarvis is operational. He says “throw a little hot-rod red in there” instead of “paint components x, y, and z with red paint #20.” Tony treats all his machinery like that—Dummy and You, especially—and Jarvis is no exception.

Jarvis has become much more human since Iron Man 1. He actually displayed emotions in Iron Man 3—specifically when he feared for Tony’s life, his voice sounded terribly frightened, and in instances like the second gif where he said “I need to sleep” and not “My battery is depleted.” Jarvis has grown and changed, as any self-aware creature does. He has become human because he is treated as such.

Junji Ito x Pokemon ⊟
Pokemon’s about to get real, real creepy, y’all— creepier than even Creepy Black. The Pokemon Company has collaborated with horror manga artist Junji Ito, who you may know from That One Comic About People Obsessed with People-Shaped Holes in a Mountain and every other unsettling Japanese comic you’ve seen online. The collaboration is called “Kowapoke,” or “Scarypoke.”
The Pokemon Company released one preview image in the form of a phone wallpaper, above, featuring the world’s most menacing Banette. They’re also giving t-shirts out in Japan featuring the image, for people who need more personal space, I guess.
Game Freak told us they were freaky.

So my school is putting on a production of Macbeth and not enough guys tried out so instead of having a girl play male Macbeth, our direction said, “Fuck it, we’re doing Lesbian Macbeth”

This is the best possible solution.

I most heartily approve of this because it is awesome.

Our production had a male Macbeth and a male Fleance, and otherwise lesbians everywhere. apocalypsemacbeth

Not everyone sees the same color when they stare at this spinning disk.
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."
Fascinating how our brains work, I see a brown tan, what do you see? :D

i see lavender!

It’s like… red and pink and brown. And like, black in the middle “stripe”.
What is this sorcery…

I see teal.

Pale yellow!

I see a bright yellow!

Like a chartreuse? Greeny yellow.

-Sir, we’ve found this and we needed you to name it.
-Pineapple.
-But we figured we might as well just call it “Ananas” since the majority of the world refers to it as-
-Pineapple.
-But sir-
-Pine. Apple.

CRYING I HAVE TO REBLOG IM SORRY OMFG

PINE. APPLE.

LOL THIS IS THE GREATEST.

If this doesn’t perfectly sum up the English language I don’t know what does


TIME TO PULL OUT THE ETYMOLOGY AGAIN.
Originally, pineapple didn’t refer to fruit. It referred to these babies.

Because they hung on trees like apples, but they were on PINE trees so they were pineapples.
Then, some English speaking motherfucker saw a sweetass looking pineapple like this.

And they went “holy shit this fruit looks JUST like a pineapple!”
Voila!
(The Spanish said the exact same thing, which is why they’re called piñas, aka the same word as the one for pinecone).
Near as I can tell, ananas is derived from the Tufi word for “excellent fruit”, which makes sense bc pineapples r pretty baller.
But anyway the moral of the story is before you go “lolol English does this differently SEE IT’S A TERRIBLE LANGUAGE” do a ten second google search and then the word will make sense.
Or just don’t and admit that there’s probably a reason for this to be the way it is because languages are living things and they evolve for reasons. There are very few language conventions that came into play just to fuck w/ you.
