252.day in japan: 

Woke up at 8:30am and after breakfast (during which I saw Daichi Mao on TV!), I went grocery shopping for todays picknick, cooked a lot of Kaiserschmarrn (austrian scambled pancake), went down to the information center to change linen and had a nice chat with the lady there^^~ 

I prepared everything to leave so I would be at the place near the hirosegawa (river) at 1pm. 

After a few minutes some friends came, we ate, chatted and had fun until I saw another friend passing the bridge, so I shouted his name, he heared me and came down XD Friends kept going and coming and I enjoyed the picnic a lot❤ 

The best part was when two of my guy friends where extremely frightened by the biggest catterpiller I’ve ever seen in my life (I personally found it very cute❤). 

At 5pm we went home and although I’ve done practically nothing today, I felt kinda exhausted XD" (maybe dehydration…?) 

After taking a shower at home however, I felt much better^^

When People Say Movie Audiences Are Not Accepting of a Female Action Hero:

$102,515,793 & an Oscar Nomination with a possible sequel in the works.

$118,311,368 (making back its budget).

$136,307,228 with 2 movies/a $30 million budget.

$163,789,606 with 2 more movies coming out.

$196,828,266 with 2 movies.

$222,412,919 with 4 movies/a 5th in development.

$244,523,928 with 5 movies.

$269,361,252 with 4 movies/a 5th in development.

And of course…

$1,169,814,624 with one more coming out.

The Hunger Games was the #3 movie of 2012 after Avengers & Dark Knight Rises

Catching Fire was the #1 movie of 2013. 

Mockingjay - Part 1 was the #2 movie of 2014 after American Sniper.

I’m really surprised that we don’t have more female-driven films, not just action films. Pitch Perfect 2 just made a ton of money and Tomorrowland - starring Britt Robertson in the lead - just won Memorial Day weekend. So can we get more movies like this out there?

In all of Earth’s 4.5 billion-year history, there were 5 great mass extinctions, the greatest of which was the Permian-Triassic extinction event that killed 96% of all the species that lived 252 million years ago. So great was the carnage that it was nicknamed The Great Dying. SciShow gave a great video regarding these mass extinctions.

And now we are undergoing a 6th extinction event - the Anthropocene Extinction. As humans we don’t want to be burdened by the fact that we are causing rapid changes to the Earth and causing so many species to disappear to the point that we deny it even in the face of overwhelming evidence. We want to deflect the blame to something else - anything but us.

But surely we are better than this. We are humans; we are descended from these few but great survivors of the past. We have evolved to the point that we can wonder about our place in the cosmos and we’re using that curiosity to drive our knowledge forward. We pride in our intelligence and even use it as the one defining thing that separates us from the rest. In Carl Sagan’s words:

Our intelligence and our technology have given us the power to affect the climate. How will we use this power? Are we willing to tolerate ignorance and complacency in matters that affect the entire human family? Do we value short-term advantages above the welfare of the Earth? Or will we think on longer time scales, with concern for our children and our grandchildren, to understand and protect the complex life-support systems of our planet? The Earth is a tiny and fragile world. It needs to be cherished. [Source]
