ok i really miss you

cartoonphysics  asked:

in response to the "why you know so much about everything" post, i would like to inquire about the aforementioned banana famine

Ah, yes, the great Banana Famine. Dark, dark days indeed. Gather round my children, I am going to tell you a story of great tragedy.

Eons back, in a strange far away land, in a world now long gone (circa 1950), the Gros Michel reigned supreme. It was the one Banana to rule All bananas. Gros Michel (literally Fat Michael in French, also known as “Big Mike”) was the main banana cultivar grown in Central America and sold around the globe. A noble specimen, it’s thick peel and dense bunches made it resilient, easy to ship, and yes also fat. Look. Look at it. This banana is thiiiiiiiicc

hard to find good photos. it would have also resembled the goldfinger banana. looooook et it, it so thicc

so thicc. 

Ahem.

And all was well and good and peaceful.

Everything changed when the Panama disease attacked.

Ah, the Panama disease. The great banana plague. The Banana Blight, if you will. Songs were written in elegy to the terrible destruction it wrought. Like, actually. Here’s the “Yes we have no bananas” song:

It was Chaos.

Vast tracts of plantation banana trees, noble warriors, slaughtered, cut down in their prime. Ah! the grief. Ah! the loss.

But, amid the havoc of what wikipedia and I refer to as the Gros Michel Devastation Era, an unlikely hero arose. You know it as simply a humble banana. But our hero has a name:

cavendish, it’s named cavendish. 

The Cavendish banana, a cultivar that had been mass produced since the turn of the century, but only just then got it’s Time to Shine. For whatever reason, Cavendish bananas grew just fine in the same Panama disease-ridden soil that destroyed Gros Michel trees. So yeah, we planted them, fought the blight, won the war, got bananas back. 

But every war has casualties. 

Never again were bananas so tasty. Never again, were bananas so thicc.

I warned you this was the story of a tragedy. A moment of silence for our fallen comrade, please. Raise your wands to our late, great hero, Gros Michel.

(You can still get em in some places tho. Or like hybrids? idk. ) 

And kiddies, that’s the story of the banana famine as i know it.


Other deets:

BANANAS HAD SEEDS HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THIS

LOOK AT IT

bananas were cultivated over time to be seedless. 

Bananas were deboned. dwell on that.

unnfff yeah

feels so wrong but so good

unnnfff

misc stuff 

  • cavendish bananas may or may not be dying. We may or may not see the dark days of plague descend again. idk, look it up.
  • There’s a story (not proven) that the reason artificial banana flavor tastes weird is b/c it was based on the flavor of the Gros Michel. If so, it might be cause Fat Mike had a stronger taste (due to higher levels of isoamyl acetate). idk.
  • the “Yes we have no bananas” song was written in 1922 during an earlier outbreak. src.  like any good plague, panama disease has a history of hovering over it’s fearful victims, sometimes for years, before striking the final blow.
  • sources are in the links above, also see the links on these wiki pages
  • i swear if i get hate mail on a banana post i don’t even know what i’ll do, probably stab a wall with a fork and eat it.

Totally didn’t forget to post the full cosplay  J( ‘ー`)ゞ


I just once again wanted to say that Katsucon 2017 was an unbelievable adventure and experience…. I never want to forget it…. I met so many cool people and..!! Signed autographs! (it was embarassing but.. really cool!) >////< 

This trip was totally meant to be, because even though I tried to be prepared as best as I could, the amount of times where I got extremely lucky in certain situations were scary… (ex. Hammer almost not fitting in the trunk of a car, almost not getting through across the border, having little to no damage done in transportation, having a tremendous amount of help from all of my friends, got to see delicious Genji booty)

Shout out to my BitchBoard™! (in the first picture) Without you, I would have been kicked out of the con for having such a large prop =w=;;
You let me cart my hammer around and Me n Zed even got a shoutout from Reinhardt’s voice actor!! AAAAA!!

″SKELETON HAMMER DOWN!!!” so cool ;o;!!!

Special thanks to @livingzed (Swap Papyrus) and @Suukarin (Human Swap Papyrus) for not only being my two amazing brothers but for being there for me and especially Suu for keeping my stupid hammer in their hotel room….!!!!! I love you guys so much and I really miss you ;o;


Ok i’m done being mushy, enjoy these pictures my friend Sunny took (except the first, that one was given to me!) <3

INFINITE Korean Albums (In Order)

Masterpost includes: all Korean group albums (including mini and full albums) in order from 2010 - current (2017). Also includes links to songs, performances, and music videos.

Does not include: sub-unit albums (such as Infinite H, Infinite F), solo albums (Sunggyu, Woohyun), or any of their Japanese albums. However, if the albums themselves include solos/sub-units on the track list, I will list them. If requested, I can make a separate post for those. This post would be way longer if those albums were included, so I decided not to. 

Reason for this masterpost: I wanted to learn the names of the albums. On top of that, while I was making this, I also got to hear hidden tracks, which one then became a single in the (past) future. It was interesting to me, so I thought I’d share. 

Key: x = intro/lyric video. MV = Music Video. Dance Version = dance version MV (not dance practice). Live = live concert version. Perf = performance.

Teaser Cards

@markrosewater recently answered an ask about teaser cards in sets and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. What I’m referring to as a teaser card is a card the makes reference to something that’s in the pipeline but which hasn’t been printed yet. It’s a card (or cards) that will come in a later set or block.

I believe there’s a right and a wrong way to do these. Read on to see how Wizards blew it in the past and find out if Hour of Devastation will repeat the failure or deliver on the promise.

Thomas Shelby x reader

“Maybe, but I know that he still loves you whatever he tries to say. I can see it in his eyes when people speak of you. When he looks at you, it’s like he’s never seen anything quite like it. He’s never looked at me that way. That’s all I wanted you to know, I thought if you left then maybe he’d look at me that way.”

anonymous asked:

any yoonjin fanfic recommendation?

HI anon!! Sorry this took me so long, I’m universally bad at organizing myself enough to actually recommend stuff?  Which sounds weird, but it takes me a hot minute.  A few things before I get to a list: 

I’d like to direct you to these two posts HERE and HERE - they are two Yoonjin fic recs I did in the past!  Check those out because I’m going to start this rec where the last one left off (or try to).  

My #1 favorite Yoonjin writer is @johannbuddenbrooks, I would like to rec every single Yoonjin thing he has written.  Links to his stuff via his tumblr HERE. Look for him on AO3 HERE.  That being said I’m still starting out by reccing a JBB series heh.

*These fics have mature (ish?) content

ok so i really miss htgawm and i just wanted to remind you of that one scene in season 2 where they are creating a dating profile to catch that guy they thought was the murderer or something and oliver is creating the account and he says to connor something like ‘i used your picture for the profile because obviously you are more attractive than me’ and connor immediately goes like ‘ENOUGH WITH THE LOW SELF ESTEEM’ and it just breaks my heart how oliver hadn’t realized that connor thought he’s super hot and how much connor loves him and gosh i miss the show so much i’m crying

I promised one more chapter and here it is: a fluffy epilogue to close a fluffy fic!

Let me take a moment to say that I have so much love for everyone that showed interest in this ball of fluff. I had never expected it to take off like it did. Thank you all so much ❤

@badassindistress, you are the best sister, beta reader and partner in literary crime anyone could wish for, without you half of this fic would not exist

@montparnassee, I did my best to grant your wish, I hope you liked your story and thanks so much for your input

@adorablecrab, @trust-me-im-joly, @petalprouvaire thank you for being utterly lovely to me every time I uploaded (and all the times in between)

@just-french-me-up, thank you for your encouragement when this fic was just a little one-shot

@wistfulwishing, thank you for the post that started it all!

And all of you that read, liked, reblogged and left lovely tags/comments (I want to name you all but I can’t): THANK YOU! You made me oh so happy :’)

as of now im planning on turning my sideblog @thedarkslayer into my main buffyverse blog so i can talk about meta and reblog stuff and, like, care a little bit less in an overall sort of way about my content and focus on buffy in one neat & tidy place so follow that if you are at all interested pals

I just hit 1700 Followers!! OMG!! I love you guys for keeping this blog going!! I am so glad that many people love Bioshock. I use to hear people saying it was a horrible game when I worked at EB Games and it use to make me so mad. Then I started this blog, saw how many others were obsessed with the game just like me and I didn’t care anymore about other people’s opinions. So thank you Rapture Fam, much love xo

B.A.P Bodyguard Himchan ‘Phoenix With a Heartache’

anon asked:  Hi! Could you please write a drabble expansion for himchan from bap as bodyguard? Thank you in advance!!

A/N: I don’t know why some of these turn out so much longer than others, lol. I hope you enjoy it though, honey. WARNING: Mentions of violence.

This is an expansion of a reaction I wrote here.

It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

Of course you knew it could happen but over time you’d become more or less desensitized to the possibility. There were people out there that wanted you dead. It wasn’t anything of your doing, merely a consequence of being born into a certain family. To that end guards were a commonplace necessity in your world. You’d learned you were just a job to them and while you were polite, you didn’t try to make friends anymore.

Until one in particular came along. One as adept at making you laugh as he was protecting you. Your bond was something that bloomed slowly, built upon inside jokes and long conversations. Sharing things you’d never told another soul. Words rough as stone that hadn’t been polished smooth by being spoken before, yet when introduced to his would spark like flint. Love grew between you but you weren’t sure which form his took. Romantic such as your own? Did he see you as a friend or even worse a younger sibling?

And now you may never get a chance to find out because he’d been hurt trying to keep you safe.

Nothing had seemed out of place until the last second. Then the sound of shots being fired rang in the air and you were grabbed and hurried away. Frantically you looked for Himchan. Last you saw he’d been across the room talking to another guard when the chaos started.

Suddenly the man who was trying to get you to cover cried out and went down, leaving you feeling shocked and exposed. Searching for Himchan you turned and finally locked eyes with him. His expression was intensely focused as he rushed the last few yards to your side.
