James Bond is a pop culture juggernaut, but even obsessive fans have trouble keeping track of the secret agent’s complicated history of over dozens of films. Here’s what you need to know about the iconic man of mystery.
James Bond makes men sit down by using a gun: Everyone knows that the superspy travels around the world to make men sit down, but how does he make them sit down? James Bond’s secret weapon is the gun, a kind of gentleman’s sword. He often uses his gun after uttering the classic catchphrase, “Please seat yourself anywhere.”
All the incarnations of James Bond are brothers and live together in a studio apartment: Here’s one of the more obscure bits of Bond mythology. All the James Bonds—from the Sean Connery James Bond to the Daniel Craig James Bond—are brothers who were given the same first name by their parents. To save money after moving to London and joining MI6, they rented a studio apartment where they all sleep together in a single king-sized bed, except for the Roger Moore James Bond, who sleeps on the floor in a sleeping bag because there isn’t room for him.
Bond’s code number 007 is a reference to 7: Author Ian Fleming didn’t pick 007 at random. Most viewers don’t realize that it’s intended as a clever nod to the number 7.
James Bond doesn’t understand that humanity is weak and corrupt and that the Earth must be purged so a better world can be built on society’s ashes: The fool, Bond can’t see that, like a forest fire allowing fresh saplings to grow, civilization must be swept away to make room for a utopia. Disgusting sheep, that’s what most people are, living their tedious lives, mindlessly destroying their environment in pursuit of the almighty dollar. It would be a favor to burn them all away, like the ants they are, and allow a select group of genetically superior humans to repopulate the planet, but Bond doesn’t have the vision to embrace what needs to be done.
Jason Bourne is pretty much the same thing: One of the best thing about James Bond is that he’s basically Jason Bourne. You can nitpick ways that they’re slightly different, but they’re essentially identical. James Bond being more or less Jason Bourne is what theatergoers have loved about Bond for over 50 years!
“Cardinal Rassilon has been researching a method of regenerating diseased and decaying tissue. Via a series of permanently carried self-replicating biogenic molecules, the cells of a Gallifreyan body can be repaired, restored, and reorganized. This will result in a whole new physical form. The brain cells will similarly be rearranged, although to a lesser degree, thus ensuring the new incarnation will replicate the memories and personality of the former incarnation. Cardinal Rassilon intends for this method to only be used upon the Gallifreyan elite. He has also inputed a parameter of twelve regenerative cycles to avoid decaying biogenic molecules.” - The Recorder, Zagreus
“I can still die. If I’m killed before regeneration, then I’m dead. Even then, even if I change, it feels like dying. Everything I am dies. Some new man goes sauntering away… and I’m dead.” - Tenth Doctor, The End of Time
okay folks so yesterday was when I posted B.A.P Text Post Meme #50. It’s kinda insane how i’ve been doing those posts for 50 days straight now and that i’ve accumulated 400 images for them the last two months. I know most of my followers have probably checked me out for these posts and i’m really glad you’re all enjoying them, but i’ve decided to slow things down with them.
the last 10 or so have been late and overall my blog hasn’t had much activity during this time, which you may have noticed. that’s because making them has become a lot of work, and combined with job applications, uni studies, group chat administration and the need to have a life outside of those things i’ve been stressing myself out about them. I’m also mourning the fact that i barely have time to make other kinds of memes anymore bc goddammit there was variation in the memes made on this blog during the first two weeks before the tpms started
i’m still gonna make TPM’s because i really like creating them and i still have 700+ unused text posts saved, it’s just that i won’t pressure myself to make one every day anymore. hopefully i can fix my sleep schedule and my deteriorating queue quality, and then we’ll see how things continue.
TL;DR: Text post memes will no longer be daily, but aren’t discontinued.
Since this seems to be hip with the kids would you guys mind giving this a like / reblog if you’re down to write with a Levi Ackerman from Attack on Titan / Shingeki no Kyojin. Multiverse. Panfandom. All that good stuff! xx
“I will make you a promise. Every year, Tessa, on one day, I will meet you on that bridge. I will come from the Silent City and I will meet you, and we will be together, if only for an hour. But you must tell no one.”
“An hour every year,” Tessa whispered. “It is not much.” She recollected herself then, and took a deep breath. “But you will live. You will live. That is what is important. I will not be visiting your grave.”
“Before was a long time ago- maybe 50 years if I’m right, wow, but back then I was the only animatronics besides Fredbear himself. I haven’t really seen him since they… boarded me up in a safe room forever ago, hm."
On the subject of Ahkmenrah, why does no one ever talk about the fact that the poor boy was being brought back to life trapped in his own tomb every single night for at least 50 years, all alone while everyone else ignored him as he literally screamed and hammered on the lid of his coffin all night, AND THEN when he finally gets out he is the sweetest most polite person ever even to everyone who just presumed he was bad and left him trapped in there I wanna give him a cuddle
I KNOW! Jeez, idk if this is the same anon, but I am agreeing so hard with all of these asks about Ahk.
Like, NO ONE EVEN APOLOGIZED TO HIM! And they might not have just left him locked up every night - they might have even TAUNTED him about it! (Teddy’s comment about how “You’ve been in there for 50 years pharaoh, and you’re not getting out tonight”) I mean, imagine how grateful Ahkmenrah must have been about Larry letting him out: Larry was the only one to show him any kindness or understanding in 50 years :(
wow i just, yeah, having a lot of ahkmenrah feels. sweet precious baby TT^TT
(oh btw, possibly rtyi: i just read this fic which headcanons the (very sad) reason why ahkmenrah was so sweet to everybody after being released for the first time. the relevant parts are mostly in the first chapter)
