Today I talked to a girl, a teenage girl old enough to drive and contribute to society with a job, who did not know what a house hippo is. She had no fucking clue. I tried to tell her how much they like the crumbs of peanut butter on toast but she didn’t understand. And in that moment I realized I was fucking old.
Scientists predict that a pair of stars in the constellation Cygnus will collide in 2022, give or take a year, creating an explosion in the night sky so bright that it will be visible to the naked eye.
If it happens, it would be the first time such an event was predicted by scientists.
Calvin College professor Larry Molnar and his team said in a statement that two stars are orbiting each other now and “share a common atmosphere, like two peanuts sharing a single shell.”
The one where Andrew and Neil have their first official date( On Valentine’s Day no less. Blame Allison.)
“So, what did you get your monster for Valentine’s Day?”
Allison asks, as she idly types away at her phone.
Anger bubbles up in Neil, “Allison, he’s not—“ he begins,
but gets cut off by her.
“Sorry, I meant to say Andrew, your boyfriend. What did you get him for Valentine’s Day?” she
gives a quick glance up at Neil, whose face appears slightly flushed at the
remark. A smirk forms on her lips, “Don’t try and deny that. I won’t let you.”
Neil sighs and runs a hand through his hair, “Nothing. Why
would I?” At those words, Allison stops typing away on her phone and sets it
down next to her. She arches a brow at Neil, “What do you mean ‘nothing,’ it’s
Valentine’s Day, Josten. That one day of the year specifically designated by
capitalism to celebrate your love with your partner. Which is Andrew, in your
Love. He lets the
word wash over him. He doesn’t know if that’s the word he’d use. It’s a word
too overused all around him but too underused in his own life. He doesn’t think any word is fit to describe what
he and Andrew have and yet it doesn’t feel entirely wrong.
The Lightning Thief:
2 mentions. Nancy Bobofit throws peanut butter and ketchup sandwich pieces at Grover. Disgusting combination, used for a disgusting act. This book slanders the good name of peanut butter. 1/10
Sea of Monsters:
3 mentions. Percy buys Tyson an extra peanut butter sandwich at lunch one day. Percy also can't bring himself to look at Tyson's face bc he is distracted by peanut butter in his teeth. Finally, there are PB+J sandwiches aboard the CSS Birmingham. Good amount, sets up Tyson's continued love of peanut butter throughout the series. 8/10
The Titan's Curse:
2 mentions. Tyson thinks Annabeth is the coolest thing since peanut butter(and he really likes peanut butter). Peanut butter is not actually present in the scene, but it is acknowledged for being very cool. 6/10
Battle of the Labyrinth:
3 mentions. Tyson wants to relive the good old days when Annabeth, Percy, and he used to go on quests and eat peanut butter sandwiches. Later, Hera serves them all peanut butter sandwiches, which Tyson inhales. Although Tyson is incorrect in the amount of peanut butter sandwiches consumed in the Sea of Monsters, there are still a good amount of mentions. 9/10
The Last Olympian:
10 mentions. By far the most. May Castellan makes PB+J for a son that will never come home. This is very sad and makes me cry every time. On a lighter note, Tyson and the cyclopses use peanut butter as their battle cry, which Zeus finds odd. All in all, a robust amount of usages, all of which are very important to the plot. 27/10
keith whenever he hears a weird sound: mothman pidge: i knew he’d show
keith always gets her peanut preferences mixed up and thinks she likes peanuts but hates peanut butter flavored foods and pidge doesn’t have the heart to tell him he’s wrong
pidge, with tears in her eyes and a mouthful of peanuts: i love them…they’re my favorite legumes
even though keith isn’t that short he is still technically the second tiniest and pidge holds this fact near and dear to her
pidge, sleepily walking into the kitchen: give me a boost [keith pops her up too hard and sends her flying through the ceiling] keith: shit
they hang out in pidge’s room and when they do they put signs on the door that say “don’t enter” and “cryptids only”
when they hang out they turn out the lights and tell each other creepy stories
keith will get hungry randomly while they’re on missions and pidge just pulls out like three granola bars lance whispering to hunk: how did she get those
neither of them sleep enough so they see each other walking half dead through the ship at like 4:28 AM and they’re just like [waves weakly] hey
they’re both level 6000 roast masters so they insult each other all the time and shiro will be like “hey, hey enough of that” and they’re like “what? no we love each other”
they both are sarcastic so often that sometimes they talk to each other and they just “was that a joke” “fuck i’m not sure” “me neither”
keith: mumbles everyone: what pidge: god use your ears guys. he said he thinks the galra are going after the most densely populated planets first
[the crew goes to the beach] pidge to keith: pass me the sunscreen, scully
keith and pidge when any of the other paladins do anything annoying: men
keith: what is “truffle butter”? pidge: absolutely not
keith has a crush on zak bagans and pidge makes jokes every chance she gets
pidge: hurry up keith zak is waiting for you keith: SHUT- lance: who is “zak”… is he taller than me?
they’re both just. garbage goblins. there’s wrappers everywhere.
pidge drinks too much coffee and is all jittery and keith is the one who finally takes the mug out of her hands and is just like “that’s enough”
keith always gets minor cuts and scrapes when he trains alone and pidge and him have a routine where pidge kinda just bandages and disinfects the cuts and while she does that they gossip with each other
[pidge rubbing her hands together like a fly]
pidge: that’s morally wrong you know keith: yeah pidge: let’s do it
shiro: you two cannot just go around asking random alien bystanders if they’ve seen the chupacabra. that is so unprofessional.
pidge: were you listening to evanescence again keith, with tears in his eyes: no… pidge: give me the other earbud
pidge can rap the entire nicki minaj verse in monster and keith is just there in the back hyping her up
pidge capitalizes off the fact that lance doesn’t know who zak bagans is and is constantly making comments that imply that keith is romantically involved with him and lance keeps getting so mad and jealous and hunk is just laughing in the corner
keith finds pidge asleep in like, empty cupboards all the time and just. sighs and pulls her out and puts her in her bed
keith’s repeats the ghost adventures intro all the time bc echolalia and pidge is just like..there he is…my sweet son
I like to think that humans are actually incredibly sturdy to compared to galra and Alteans, we eat things neither of them can, and survive in conditions neither of them could either.
Just imagine, the galra are interrogating the paladins, and force a cup of the foulest poison into them, a poison that causes a constant sensation of panic, and too much will cause a horrible heart attack……. It’s coffee, they can’t drink caffeine, their fine tuned predator hearts can’t handle it.
Their horrified to find humans eating nearly anything, tough beef jerky like substances, thick viscous substances like peanut butter, there’s nothing humans struggle to digest, and what we can’t digest passes. Our livers filter out poisons the galra consider horrible and toxic.
Even physically we would be impressive, the galra are huge sure, but if they anything like our local predators their stamina is subpar and their ability to heal is stunted compared to humans, a human can go active for nearly two days before succumbing to exhaustion. I wonder how long a galra could last?
I just wanna see the galra being fascinated by our human traits, a reason they horrified by Shiros physique and skills. They night be bigger but they definitely aren’t tougher.
GALRA KEITH CORNER : This is why Keith is so good at fighting, he gets all the stamina and skill of a human with the reflexes and speed of a galra. He’s the perfect hybrid.
