if you were a twin in ancient rome they would name the firstborn and then name the secondborn after the firstborn
if your older twin’s name was geminus, your name would be anti-geminus
that is the equivalent of naming your children steve and not steve
#those wacky Romans
so what happened when triplets were born
Steve, Not Steve, Definitely Not Steve.

Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better!
(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)
I love that this is on the Smithsonian’s tumblr
Whoever does social media for the Smithsonian is awesome.

First Track on Incongruent: “I Fucking Love Science.” I think this will also be the first music video…if all goes according to plan.
Obviously, this is the explicit version. If you like it please share! And high five to Rob Scallon for that SICK DRUM SOLO!
God I’m excited about this.
Whoa, this sounds AMAZING. Can’t wait to hear more!!

I don’t post a lot on Tumblr. I usually make my opinions known on twitter because it forces me to brief. I don’t like going on long diatribes because I have a tendency to get preachy.
That said, The Lego Movie is friggin wonderful!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I’m making one of my few texty Tumblr posts about The Lego Movie because damnit, greatness needs to be recognized where greatness is. As far as comedy writing goes, damn near 100% of the jokes in this movie hit the mark. Perfect phrasing, perfect words used, perfect timing, perfect performance, perfect. I realize a lot of those things don’t fall under the category of ‘writing’. Well, this movie transcends proper attribution of elements of filmmaking! It’s just damn good!
About three quarters of the way through I already ranked it towards the top of my favorite animated movies, but then there’s a big reveal moment and it leaps into the sublime! It actually made those moisture things happen from my eyeholes. Can’t remember what they’re called. I just Googled “moisture thing” and “squirt” and “holes” and I don’t think what came up was right so I’m not going to use that as a reference.
Anyway, the point is, jeez, what a great movie. Check it out if you haven’t.

Ten years down the road Tony is at a Science convention where he comes face to face with a young mechanical engineer. The young man says. “I’m Harley Keener. I don’t suppose you remember me, but we shared an adventure 10 years ago in Tennessee. You changed my life. I hope you don’t mind but ever since that night I have thought of you as the closest thing I ever had to a father.”
Tony grins. “You’re trying to guilt trip me.”
The young man smiles. “It was worth a try.”
They laugh, and Tony buys Harley a beer and asks him about his work and later Tony quietly makes sure that Harley’s project gets the funding it needs. The same way he made sure that Harley got into a good college and had the right scholarships. Because Harley saved him when he had no one(and maybe, just maybe because if only for that one night Harley was the closest Tony ever came to having a son.)
SOMEONE WRITE THIS
I. AM. WOUNDED.

He would do that so totally that I think we can safely assume that he actually did that.

Some say that the children’s rooms of libraries are an anachronism in a world of mobile screens with books on demand. But I say that while childhood has changed quite a bit, children have not….
Is it obvious to say that we agree? We’re saying it anyway.

An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures
The show is called ‘All or Nothing’
Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.
my hand slipped
I want officialmoamt to be the first of a wave of comics and shows born out of ideas presented in reblogs.
