Motoko Kusanagi vs. Armored Tank Scene (1995)

  1. I am posting this as an explainer in response to this post.
  2. This movie was made in 1995!
  3. The image quality is dramatically reduced because of Tumblr’s 100MB limit. The original version is 179MB. This one is only 85MB.
  4. THIS WAS ANIMATED IN 19 F@#$ING 95!
  5. The motifs in this scene are used in every animated reboot of Ghost in the Shell. Someday I’ll write a 100,000 word meta about it. 
Batou’s Face when his tank starts talking theology at him

Tachikoma: Yeah! And you know that “existence of God” thing that I had trouble understanding before? I think I am starting to understand it now. Maybe, just maybe, it’s a concept that’s similar to a zero in mathematics. In other words, it’s a symbol that denies the absence of meaning, the meaning that’s necessitated by the delineation of one system from another. In analog, that’s God. In digital, it’s zero. what do you think? Also, our basic construction is digital, right? So for the time being, no matter how much data we accumulate, we’ll never have a Ghost. But analog-based people like you, Batou-san, no matter how many digital components you add through cyberization or prosthetics, your Ghost will never be damaged. Plus, you can even die ‘cause you’ve got a Ghost. You’re so lucky. Tell me, what’s it feel like to have a Ghost?

I watched Whip It the other day and I really wanted to draw a badass roller derby girl, somehow it turned into Ghostbusters fanart?

I tried to come up with derby names for each of them but I’m bad at puns so if you have any suggestions send them my way! I was thinking Abby’s should have something to do with soup, but that’s as far as I got.

Masterlist  -  Series Masterlist  -  Part 5  -  Part 7

Summary: (Bucky POV) Nat tricks you into leading a road trip with Bucky, Sam and Steve. Her plot is partly to get the boys to travel for fun for once but mostly to get you and Bucky together. You and Bucky, who seemingly despise each other.

Warnings: swearing

Author’s Note: Okay team, I love-hate South Dakota. I think that shows in this part. XD I hope you like it anyway. Fun factoid, so far I have been everywhere in this fic that I am taking you all, and by the end there is only one place that I’ll not have described from experience.

I woke early this morning and made my way to the kitchen, Steve was already up, wolfing down a protein bar and preparing for a run. Not quite ready for conversation and definitely not interested in a run on my first vacation in years, I slipped silently past him onto the elevated deck that wrapped around much of the cabin Y/N had managed to find and rent for us. I have to admit after 14 hours of driving yesterday alone, most of those hours contentious and stressful, this cabin with plenty of room for the four of us to spread out is a much-needed reprieve.

As much as I hate to admit it, Nat knew exactly what she was doing convincing Y/N to map out this trip. She knows exactly how far is too far a drive for one day, when we all need space or when it’s okay to tough it out and share a small hotel. Just now the space and the quiet is a welcome change from the hot, overcrowded amusement park or the busy city streets.

I check my watch and know the sun must be coming up, but looking out from the roughly hewn pine railing, all I see are tall, dark evergreens covering the rippling hills in front of me. I can’t even see another house from here. The morning air is cold on the back of my neck since I’ve tied my hair to calm it, so I flip my hood up over my head and turn with a start when I hear her soft voice. “It’ll warm up soon.”

Ghost CatfishKryptopterus bicirrhis

Glass catfish or ghost catfish inhabits in Thailand and Indonesia rivers. The fish prefers some streams and rivers with slow water flow, where the fish inhabits in a school and catches fish flowing by.

So the Reaper not regenerating health from the souls he collects anymore makes sense in the sense on that he could heal himself off kills he didnt do himself so like thats nice but him getting health from the damage he puts out is bullshit because he puts out a fucking truckload of damage. like he’s already a tank shredder, this is just overkill now

“Hey!”

Betta Care Masterpost:

Let’s get something straight here, right off the bat: 

Most of what you have been taught about Betta Fish is probably wrong, if you aren’t an enthusiast at least. 

1. Space: 

THIS IS A MASSIVE NO-NO FOLKS! 

Repeat After Me: 

A Single Betta Needs a Minimum of 5 Gallons

Companies often sell small ‘stylish’ habitats ‘specifically designed’ for Bettas. This is a lie. These are WAY too small. You’re going to end up with a sad, stressed Betta fish. This also means you CANNOT keep them in the cup they came in. A suitable Betta habitat will look something like this: 

Take note of how much space is provided to the Betta. 

2. Bettas are NOT Herbivores, and you need to feed them- you can’t just leave your Betta in a vase with flowers and expect them to survive. 

This is one of the cruelest things you could do to a Betta. Not only does this violate Rule 1, but it’s also essentially starving them to death, and making them swim in their own waste. This stresses them out and shortens their life. 

On another note: DO NOT feed your Betta ‘Tropical Fish Flakes’. This does not contain the nutrients they need. 

Instead, feed them either the ‘Betta food pellets’ 

Or if you really want to treat them, you can buy them small bloodworms. Kind of like this, but it isn’t necessary.

By the way Bettas can get fat, and they need to be fed a pinch of pellets everyday, you can’t just feed them once a week, even if they can survive two weeks without food. (meaning you can go on vacation without worrying about them, but it’s sort of a dick move) 

3. Community tanks with Bettas are damn near impossible, so please don’t even try. 

THIS IS A BIG ASS NO NO FOLKS!

Even If it’s a pair of females this will not work. Females can be just as aggressive as males. Also, you cannot introduce other fish/other aquatic animals to their environment, you need to introduce the Betta to theirs, and even then, Betta fish are compatible with a small list of other animals. However it seems to be the easiest to introduce them to a community tank containing Ghost Shrimp and Acorn Snails. 

Keep in mind this must be a ten gallon tank. 

5. Tank Cleaning

Although it’s true that Bettas are hardy and don’t produce much waste, it’s still important to clean their tanks quite often. 

This is absolutely unacceptable. This puts so much stress on the poor Bettas you might as well kill them now. 

Bettas need about 10% of their water changed every week to keep them healthy, happy, and stressless. You should all know what a clean tank looks like by now. 



Bettas are NOT toys, please do not pit them against each other or keep them in uncomfortable, small spaces.
