OH SHIT

is this why the show was taken off nick?

So this is what air benders can do. Sucking the air out of people’s lungs. Just as cool as lightening bending if you ask me

No I don’t think you guys understand this is frightening

Airbenders are pretty much the most powerful benders. A firebender has to create fire. A waterbender is most powerful on the open seas as much as an earthbender is on land. But air is literally everywhere.
The Air Nomads weren’t dangerous because they chose not to be.

you’vE GONE TOO DEEP

Hey, HOLD UP.
While I agree that Airbenders do have a lot of power at their exposure, they aren’t the only ones.
Waterbenders can bend any type of fluid containing water, even blood inside the human body! That’s pretty fucking metal.

They can also take the water vapor out of the air, use their own sweat or even drain the water out of every living thing nearby. 

Imagine that ^^ happening to a person..
Next we have fire, the element of destruction. Like Airbenders, they can use the air around them, and transfer it into energy. Firebenders can bend or generate anything fire/ heat related.  That means lightning, flames, or extreme heat that has the potential to shape its environment (such as melt molten rock and metal.) Even fire breath!



Next we have Earth. Earthbenders can bend anything related or comprised of Earth, such as metal, rock, dirt, sand, etc. EVEN LAVA. Anything mineral related? You got it. Admittedly, minerals- although extremely easy to come by, are not as present as water or air. But there sure is enough to make use of, and we can’t say Earthbenders aren’t powerful!

This guy just stopped a volcano. 

Not only are they powerful, but they are also graceful. 

And I mean look at this! Avatar Kyoshi Earthbends a freaking continent in HALF!

In conclusion, fear all benders. 



Just for fun, let’s think about let’s think about some stuff the show hasn’t done, and may never do. Bending is obviously dangerous to people in the same way tools are. A rock that grinds powder can crack your skull; fire can cook meat, you’re meat; air keeps you alive but can pick you up and hurl you away; water keeps you alive, but can drown and crush you. We see a lot of that sort of thing in the shows, since wars and whatnot, but the stuff that turns things from “dangerous but cool” like swords, lightning, and Toph to “Ok, I am legitimately kind of freaked out” is when it gets…personal.
Blood bending was introduced in a horror story sort of episode and up top we have someone taking air from your lungs.That’s the sort of thing that invites you to imagine it happening to you and that makes it disturbing. It hasn’t happened in story, but let’s think about earth and fire. These will take someone with talent, I imagine, but should be possible within the rules.
You know what hangs out with all that water in your body? Bones, minerals, metals. Not enough of the last to be workable, I imagine, and you wouldn’t need to when bones are such a larger target for control. Earth does a lot of yanking and shoving, too. Why play puppet master when you can pull a skeleton out of someone. 
I don’t know the finer details of fire. Tends be making visible stuff, like fire and lightning, not moving what is there, but lets imagine fire is a byproduct. Let’s imagine they bend heat…and whatever lightning counts as. Electrons would be overpowered, I think, and they’d probably be affecting more than we’ve seen. In any case, getting to the personal level, you generate heat. It powers your body functions. Imagine someone pulled it out of you. Not only do you get burned from all that heat flowing through all at once, but you freeze cause you don’t have it anymore. If that’s not you’re bag, you know what makes us go? Electrical signals shooting around our brain cells. Sure would suck if someone figured out a way to control those.

Back in prehistoric times it was just a free for all. God was putting antlers on everything and made 7 foot tall gophers with wings, it was a mess.

Look at this poor, impractical bastard. 

The prehistoric era was God’s Deviantart stage.

Now he just hides all of his stupid-looking OCs in the ocean where no one can find them.

I can’t not reblog this

That, dear readers, is a (incorrect, as it turns out) guess at a Helicoprion from 2005. It’s one of a type of ancient spiral toothed fish that lived from 285 - 225 million years ago, which puts it in the Permian and Triassic periods. Since it is cartilaginous (skeleton made of cartilage, instead of bone, like sharks), what fossils we find are generally teeth, since cartilage doesn’t last as long as bone in order to get into fossilizing situations, though sometimes we luck out. Unlike sharks, we don’t have any handy modern day examples to give us hints about how said teeth worked, fit into mouths, etc. Only relatively recently was it discovered that they weren’t direct relatives of sharks, in fact.The closest modern day relatives we’ve got are the Chimaeras, which have their own oddities, but not the spiral teeth ones. So, we’ve been tackling the teeth, which we find as tooth whorls, since Alexander Karpinsky first described it in 1899.

image

There’ve been a lot of ideas tossed around about how the spiral tooth animals would have worked as criticism and new evidence comes into play. Even Karpinsky took suggestions that they might have been fin spines to heart, but that’s long been pretty much ruled from lack of evidence. Karpinsky’s first idea for the animal was not unlike the picture up top, with the teeth hanging out of the mouth, but his whorl was on the upper jaw. You can see a bit of theory progression over the years in this Ray Troll artwork. (Click for a bigger image.)

image

Now for some cool recent info that starts with some cool not so recent info. Back in 1950, they found a tooth whorl with some fossilized cartilage jaws and skull in the Waterloo Mine near Montpelier, Idaho. The study of that fossil led to the 1966 hypothetical jaw on the stand in the lower left of the former image. Bendix and Almgreen, the two men who made the 1966 study, thought the cartilage too deformed to determine a sufficiently accurate complete jaw, though.

In 2013 a study was published on that same fossil. They did a CT (CAT) scan on the fossil with an ACTIS scanner and found out that the cartilage really was enough to determine the jaw question. Turns out, that whorl fit into the entire lower jaw like a buzzsaw, with the youngest teeth in the center and the older teeth on the outside, visually similar to how a nautilus shell’s chambers work. Once again, Ray Troll illustrates:

image

So, that’s the Helicoprion. Doesn’t look like the guy up top, remains awesome, and still plenty to figure out about it, like what the whole head and body might actually look like. We still only know the jaw at the this point. I’ll leave you with one last Ray Troll piece showing his idea about that.

Based on that hilarious text post.

would definitely watch this

irony is….she’s still the main character 

She just can’t escape her fate.

What if you had a studio that did a continuity universe thing, like the Marvel movies stuff, and at the beginning of each series/movie/story/whatever you show, in the background, the weird kid or the universe special Thing That Happens to Character gets sidestepped or brushed off by this background girl before it happens to the protag. There to be seen, but only as one of those things you forget quickly or notice later, when you’ve experienced the plot and your mind starts watching the background.

Then, after a lot of shows have done this, spotlight her like this post, tell her story, and grow her character.

Blow your MIND” Tomato Basil Pasta! - No Straining, just Stirring Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! - Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta Ingredients: 12 ounces pasta (Shown  Linguine) 1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor) 1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves 2 large sprigs basil, chopped 4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium) 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Optional Parmesan cheese for garnish Directions: Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired . Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese if desired.

great Zeus’s beard this stuff is good. it’s also really easy and cheap and smells wonderful when it’s cooking. MAKE THE THING.

I’ve made this multiple times before and you should too

A mean where I don’t have do to shit and it practically makes itself? Yes please.

Pretty sure I reblogged it before but food porn + recipe must be blogged forever.

Are there no fucking butterflies in japan 

To be fair, in the third one they are bird-like. It’s appropriate since they’re called Rukh, another name for the Roc, which is a giant bird in Arabian mythology.

That said,

They find out what they are sometime between now and 2071, at least.
