What is that!
mim its a lighting bug or whatever they light up
WHAAAAAAT THATS SO COOL HOW DOES HE DO THAT! ITS JUST A BUG BUT IT LIGHTS UP
lol it had never even occurred to my that there were parts of this planet where lightning bugs are not indigenous
I AM SO JEALOUS I WANT TINY LITTLE BUG LANTERNS
the fact that people haven’t experienced fireflies/lightning bugs… it just makes me sad, they were such a part of my childhood in Ohio. Also, ‘bug lanterns’ is maybe the cutest thing i’ve ever heard it my life.
The soy fields out back are full of them around this time of year. Hundreds of flickering bug butts ;D

Metal Gear Solid: WWII is a personal project imagining the Metal Gear Solid Universe during the World War II era. The story encompasses the origins of The Boss and her Cobra Unit. Updates will come as soon as more characters are designed. Thanks for looking!

I wish Batman was depicted like this more often. Many of his villains are mentally ill and victims of tragic circumstances, it would be nice to see him try to help them as much as he helps the people they put in danger because of their problems.
I tear up every time I watch this show. “I had a bad day too, once.”
Best version of Batman. Best version of Harley.
I prefer Batman when he wasn’t a ultra-paranoid nutjob.
This this one thousand times this! What I freaking hate is that that crazy, joyless version of Batman is considered the “default” or even “better” version because of stuff like shitty writers (oh hi there Frank Miller) and the Nolanverse movies, which in themselves are a deconstruction of that version of Batman. Nolanverse Batman is unsustainable. Nolanverse Batman is completely without a lot of his support network for the majority of the trilogy. Nolanverse Batman pushes people away and ends up having to stop being a superhero in order to reclaim his humanity. That is practically skywriting saying “comics Batman is obviously different to this, this is an interesting AU.” I truly love the Nolanverse movies, I think they’re brilliant, but god do I hate it when they’re misinterpreted into comics canon. Also, Nolanverse Batman isn’t full-on crazy joyless Batman either; he quips, he teases people, he fucking smiles.
Bruce Wayne’s Batman is one of, quite possibly foremost of, my favourite superheroes, but not for any of the reasons that seem to be glorified about him in those psychotic versions. Yes, he gets obsessive. Yes, he is an utter control freak. And those are his flaws, not his strengths.
You wanna talk to me about Batman’s strengths? Talk to me about the fact that he’s the adopted single father of five kids (yes I’m counting Damian because the way he was brought into the family is analogous to adoption).
Talk to me about the fact half of his information networks are made up of ex-cons he’s rehabilitated into education programs where they flourish, and the other half are Arkham inmates who he acknowledges as the leaders in their field. Talk to me about the fact that most of the time, they’re willing to give him the information he needs.
Talk to me about the fact that he became a superhero out of the self-awareness that the trauma of losing his parents so mentally scarred him that he knows he can never be well-adjusted, but he wants to use his warped perspective to do some good so no child will ever have to endure what he did again.
Talk to me about the fact that he became a governor on the board of Arkham Asylum not to persecute but to protect the inmates, because even though they perpetrate utterly abhorrent acts they are still people with rights and even the capability to one day reform.
Talk to me about how many times he’s paid for Harvey’s surgery, and the fact that Harvey still refers to Bruce as his one friend who’s always stood by him.
Talk to me about him sponsoring Harley’s parole and laughed as she backflipped with joy.
Talk to me about the fact that, because he knows he can get stupidly stubborn and out-of-control, he surrounds himself with people who refuse to take his crap (Alfred, Babs, Selina, Dick, Jim, Leslie, etc) because he knows sometimes he needs to be stopped.
The real Batman is not some psychotic sadist who hates people and never smiles.
The real Batman is a grumpy socially awkward dad with badass friends, plenty of issues but also a moral compass, a strong belief in human rights and the ability to reform… with a soft spot for people as maladjusted as him.
Accept no substitutes.
Reblogging this again for the glorious commentary. This is Batman. THIS.

A few years ago I really wanted to learn an unconventional instrument.
And I found an instrument called a ‘Hang Drum’. (pronounced ‘hung’) It’s really a beautiful instrument, unfortunately they cost thousands of dollars.
I’d still totally want to learn to play one some day.
Guys. This guy playing a UFO is amazing.

i’m not sure which is more pressing, “why” or “how”
personally im more concerned with why a robot would have to wear glasses
I don’t usually reblog something with an answer, but I thought I’d chime in. Imma point towards the Prime show for this to the part where Starscream mentions, in reference to the T-cog, that Cybertronian anatomy, at least the important bits, are more biology than technology. Maybe it’s just an easy fix to wear glasses rather than go through the Cybertronian variant of laser surgery for their optics.
