Who makes these? Because, seriously—they win.
Zechs: Relena, what did it say just now?
Relena (to the bear): What did you say just now?
[arrow: the bear Heero gave her in the last episode)
Bear: Relena, I’m going to kill you.
Hunger Games! (Just because it’s a sweet gif and I’m excited and eagerly anticipating six weeks from now when I’m done with school and will actually have time to finish reading the second and third books. And hopefully will get a chance to see the first movie sometime in there).
On a not-really related note, I think it’s cool that tumblr makes visible all the times something has been reblogged and from who. It might be fun to do some sort of tree showing how something spreads on tumblr through reblogs…(but not with this, because it has over 12,000 notes, and I’m not that ambitious…and, as noted above, I have no time right now).
Write about a girl who goes through her “rebellious phase” a little earlier than normal—maybe closer to 11, 12, 13 then 15-18.
Read followers’ works inspired by this prompt:

Wait, you mean the ‘pre-teen’ years is an abnormal time to go through that phase? Well, I’ve always known my family was weird, though my brothers and I didn’t so much have a ‘rebellious’ phase (yeah, boys get it too; shocking) as a ‘moody @$$hole teenager’ phase about that time.
Hiccup is the most moe.
How to Train Your Dragon!!
Incidentally, the first time I saw this movie, my friends and I played a drinking game where every time someone said “Hiccup” or a dragon fell out of the sky (except for that one scene; if you’ve seen it you know which one because that would be freaking ridiculous) we drank. And we weren’t exactly sober to start with. I love this movie. But not actually mostly because of the drunkenness.
December 10, 1959 - From the Records of the Agency for International Development, this copy of a Foreign Service Despatch from the American Embassy in Kathmandu, Nepal, summarizes the Nepalese Government’s regulations concerning any proposed mountain climbing expeditions in search of “YETI.”
“In case ‘YETI’ is traced it can be photographed or caught alive but it must not be killed or shot at except in an emergency arising out of self defense.”
I wonder if Finland has similar regulations concerning the treatment of reindeer with phosphorescent noses?
Is it weird that the first fully formed thought I had in regards to this (after I stopped marveling over the sheer wow of the international implications regarding yeti-hunting expeditions) was to wonder whether there are still restrictions on yeti hunting (considering that China now controls Tibet)?
And the second was to wonder what the ‘royalty’ to be paid to the government would be today, considering inflation (and lots of other fun economic loveliness) means 5000 Indian rupees today is only worth about 100 USD?
Everything important that has ever happened ever. EVER.
These are totally cool…and I would totally fall down them and break my neck the first time I even tried to use them. Between the shape, the alternating color, and my (horrible) depth perception, I don’t think I could handle walking on those stairs. Just looking at the picture for too long makes me vaguely queasy. And I’m probably going to dream about them tonight.
Scott Walker Opponents Collect More Than 300,000 Signatures In Just 12 Days!
Activists pushing to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) announced on Monday evening that they have collected more than 300,000 signatures for the effort in just 12 days.
To trigger a recall election, Walker’s opponents, coordinated by the group United Wisconsin, need to collect 540,208 valid signatures by Jan. 17, which is 60 days after the campaign launched. Organizers said they are aiming for 600,000 to 700,000 signatures.
“Scott Walker has taken to the airwaves, supported by millions in corporate cash, to defend his record of job loss and full-scale assault on Wisconsin’s institutions and values,” United Wisconsin Executive Director Meagan Mahaffey said in a statement. “But all over Wisconsin, the people are seeing through Walker’s deceptions and are moving to take our state back.”
In the first 96 hours of the recall effort, United Wisconsin and its supporters collected more than 105,000 signatures from all 72 counties in the state.
An election could occur as early as March 27, although it will likely be later if Republicans challenge the petition signatures or file lawsuits.
SIGN THE RECALL PETITION.
RECALL WALKER (AND KLEEFISCH).
(Please pass on the message).
Tungurahua Volcano in Ecuador
If you live near Ecuador’s capital, you might want to vacate your village because it looks like Mt. Doom is about to blow.
I wish I could figure out how to put photos on posts because I have pictures of the inside of the Tungurahua monitoring station, with the volcano in the background.
Edit: Also, my first thought when I saw this picture was, “Is that Mount Doom?”
