I wanna know how ridiculous Tim’s excuses for broken bones/other obvious injuries get when he’s out in public?? like I bet he makes up increasingly wild and fantastic stories and the press just eats it up.
“Mr Drake! Tell us how you broke your hand!”
“Hm? Oh, see, so Bruce and I went on a trip to Alaska! Long story short, I punched a bear that was getting a little too close for comfort, haha.”
Brown Bear Cub Lands Right Jab by David & Shiela Glatz Via Flickr: Who needs Mayweather vs. McGregor? We watched these two spring Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) cubs duke it out for over an hour one morning. Every time we thought the brawling was over, one of them snuck up and started it again. Here the lighter-colored cub thought it had “won” a stunning victory of dominance over its darker sibling. Then the darker sibling corrected this insolence with a right jab to the snout. Mother bear was nearby fishing, oblivious to this little drama. The cubs are about 6-7 months old and will be enduring their first winter in a couple months. Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.
Since merely looking at a wedding dress enrages me (EVERYTHING IS UNNECESSARILY EXPENSIVE AND US TRADITIONS ARE RECENT AND PERPETUATED BY RETAIL/DIAMOND/WEDDING INDUSTRIES AND I DO NOT WISH TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS MESS) we have decided to get married in a local nature center and just have a party in the same space and then go on a nature walk.
That’ll still be $2000 but apparently this is rock bottom for a wedding. Stupid!
Why you shouldn’t use your anime Japanese in real life
Language, and the way it conveys the relationship between characters, is endlessly fascinating. In Japanese, specifically, *everything* means something. What an anime character calls someone is important, but even how they talk about themselves has meaning.
You see, there’s no simple ‘I’ or 'you’ in Japanese.
That would be too easy.
Boku, ore, anata, watashi, omae and kimi
Japanese has several different words for 'I’ and 'you’, each applicable in different circumstances. The same way that characters pick and choose between calling each other Ya-chan or Sousuke-kun, their pronouns also have meaning. In a way this is a continuation of my honorifics post from a while back. Putting both of them together adds extra layers of meaning in relationships between people and helps in understanding how that character sees themselves in the world.
