Reminder that what the Once-ler chose to do with all his money was build a place where he’d fit in.
Where everyone would have everything they could possibly need
Just like he didn’t.
Where people sang and danced all the time
So he wouldn’t be doing it alone.
And he’d be the centre of attention
Without being the object of ridicule.
That was his dream, and with all the money in the world, he built a place where he’d be happy.
And he never got to see it.
So I found out today that my professor’s little daughter, on her fourth day of kindergarten, got called in to the principal’s office for some issue on the playground. My professor got there and asked what had happened. It turned out that his daughter was playing princesses with her friend and…
Me: Humm, I should practice some animation today!
Me: But what should I animate?
Me: Oh! Oh! You should animate a scene from Homestuck!
Me: Hey, yeah, that’s a great idea! But which scene?
Me: Do the suplex scene with Dave and Karkat!
Me: Geez, umm, that one’s kind of hard, though…
Me: Oh, and you should practice some camera movement too, since you kinda suck at that!
Me: Yeah, but, maybe I can do that with something else…
Me: DUUUUDE! You should make the camera pivot around Dave like in the MATRIX!!
Needless to say there are plenty of flaws but if you lean back and sort of squint a little I think it looks pretty good.
i want there to be an angel that descends from the heavens only when someone is being stupid
and the angel just gently places their hand over the person’s mouth
and whispers in a voice filled with heavenly beauty and love
LOOK IT UP
If Earth Had Rings
First off, they would be really pretty to look at. They would also dominate the sky in both night and day at exactly the same place as they would never rise nor set. And at night you would see the Earth’s shadow swing across the rings, like in the 4th photo here.
However, life would be very different on Earth if this were the case. Nocturnal animals would have a hard time being nocturnal, as the light reflecting from the rings would illuminate the night.
Because we are closer to the Sun than Saturn is, the rings would be more rocky than ice, making them less bright but still pretty bright. In fact, you would see far less stars at night (living anywhere other than the equator or the arctic circle) because of the light pollution and not to mention ruin most meteor showers because of that.
During the day the rings would block sunlight in certain regions of the planet creating wild weather cycles and effecting plant life as well. So basically, they would be definitely pretty to look at but they would also make a whole lot of things screwy.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s version of Romeo’s speech at Juliet’s bier was so good it moved Claire Danes to tears, nearly ruining the scene. The moment the director yelled “cut!,” Danes smacked DiCaprio on the arm and said, “Don’t make me cry. I’m supposed to be comatose, here!”
I actually really like this story
