Thor, I love you to bits, but we need to talk about your definition of ‘in my youth’: 

The Jotuns must pay for what they have done. March into Jotunheim as you once did. Teach them a lesson. Break their spirits so they’ll never dare to try to cross our borders again.

I feel like this is something everyone does, though. If we’re embarrassed about something, we pretend it happened longer ago.

"Yeah, when I was little, I used to think Africa was a country." [Actually you were not little, you thought this until age twelve.]

"Yeah, I used to think that band was so cool. I was so different back then." [Back then being six months ago.]

"I can’t remember the last time I had an actual juice box! Haha, this takes me way back." [All the way back to last week.]

"When I was a kid, I thought you pronounced the ‘o’ in opossum." [This one is me. I actually said the ‘o ‘well past childhood because what kind of word has a silent ‘o’ at the beginning?!]

edit: Ricardo Montalban, the actor who originally portrayed Khan, is Mexican, yes. The character, however, is Asian (specifically Sikh). I apologize for not making the actor/character difference clear, and I do agree it was my bad for putting Khan in this post, since POC are not interchangeable. I wanted to show how a TV show in the 60’s cast a POC for a POC, while a Hollywood blockbuster made in 2013 cast a white actor for a POC. Apologies for not explaining the Khan issue further.

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open. 

this is the most amazing thing ive ever seen
