Chasing Empty Spaces by @domestic-harry; 79k, read on ao3

Summary: The year is 1934 and Harry Styles was to inherent the largest tobacco firm in the south. His parents have picked out the “perfect” girl for him to marry and he has the privilege of receiving the highest education possible. The problem was, Harry hadn’t realized he didn’t actually want any part of that future until he met a mechanic named, Louis Tomlinson.

Why are there still so many people who believe that cheetahs are the fastest animals alive when it's clearly peregrine falcons?

Listen, it’s all in how you’re going to split hairs or various other integuments on this one. Without any qualifiers, peregrine falcons are the fastest animal. However, they hit their record speeds of 320km/hr+ in free-fall - so, once you start getting into “fastest animal moving under it’s own power”, things get messy. When it comes to powered flight, peregrines only hit about 65-90km/hr.

Cheetahs aren’t even a close second in the unqualified “fastest animals” category though, with their speeds of ~120km/hr; a whole slew of other speedy birds who enjoy plummeting to their deaths just haphazardly smashed their way in there with no regard for those poor earth-bound mammals

So let’s get into some qualifiers. Fastest self-powered movement? Nope; Brazilian free-tailed bats noodle around at a casual 160km/hr - and, as you may notice, this also means cheetahs aren’t even the fastest mammal. It’s only once we rule out everything that isn’t a terrestrial mammal that cheetahs finally take the crown. You tried, cheetahs.

This isn’t even going into speed options beyond our restrictive, human-sized measurements - for instance, in terms of objective body lengths per second the Southern California mite just absolutely crushes it with 322 body lengths per second (whereas cheetahs only score at about 16). To translate, this is the equivalent of a human running 2,092km/hr

This isn’t about England or her king or our freedom, or any of it.

Take it an shove it, Dave.

listen. listen. please take off your shipping goggles and understand: moana and maui are such a brother-sister pair it hurts

look at the scene where moana is waving the heart in maui’s face while he complains. look at her expressions. i am a little sister, i have an older brother, my entire family is full of siblings. moana is totally being the obnoxious little sister. it is adorable. maui picking on her climbing up to lalotai’s entrance. maui giving her the proud look watching her as they approach te fiti. the banter. “congratulations on not being dead, curly”/“i got your back, chosen one” the looks each of them get when the other is getting on their nerves. 

i’m telling you. moana and maui are going to look around one day and realize that they’ve been siblings for months and didn’t even realize.

I just feel for Christi so much. We all know the truth. No one has stuck up for Chloe when she left except for Nia and that's why she had weird animosity with the girls. When you have surgery and your teacher makes fun of your condition, you expect your friends to have your back. That's why I found the character of all the girls questionable since that occurrence except Nia because I totally feel like they let a teammate down hard.

Just my two cents. Feel so bad for them cus I know how much it pisses me off when people flat out lie.

The Amazing Tour Is Not On Fire | Dan and Phil’s Story of TATINOF

(made by two dorks on the internet, @danisnotonfire & @amazingphil)

I’ve been watching them for almost 6 years now and although I never got the chance to see them in real life, these two movies/videos really summed up everything I love about them and more. The performance was incredible (cringey but amazing) and the documentary brought tears to my eyes. Thanks to Dan & Phil for always making us constantly smile and inspired with everything you do! Also thanks to the Phandom for embracing me into this community. This is the most fun, I’ve ever had :’)!
