I watch a lot of documentaries. I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues. The power of an interesting documentary is that it can open our minds to new possibilities and deepen our understanding of the world.
On this list of mind expanding documentaries you will find different viewpoints, controversial opinions and even contradictory ideas. Critical thinking is recommended. I’m not a big fan of conspiracy documentaries but I do like films that challenge consensus reality and provoke us to question the everyday ideas, opinions and practices we usually take for granted.
Watching documentaries is one of my favorite methods of self-education. If I find a documentary inspiring, I usually spend more time researching the different ideas and interesting people interviewed in the film. I hope you find these documentaries as enlightening as I did!

BTS Reacting to You Being Drunk and Asking Them to Marry You-Hyung Line
“BTS reacting to you being drunk and asking them to marry you, please c:”
“Aweee is my little kitten drunk,” Namjoon, your now 5 year boyfriend, coos as he tries to hold your squirming frame.
“I not drunked, just tirefd,” you mumble while stumbling to the bedroom with Namjoon trailing after you.
hYou stub your toe on a desk and the door while coming in which has Namjoon struggling to breath from how hard he’s laughing.
“Why you laughing? Somethin funny to you smartypants?” you slur and point to his chest.
“No you’re just super cute.”
It must have been the alcohol running through your veins or the the pain from stubbing your toe, but seeing Namjoon standing there with his glasses on, smiling at you with that perfect dimpled smile really made you want to ask him to-
“What…” Namjoon questioned with a smirk.
“O-uh I didn’t say any-anything, don’t mind me just enjoying this fresh air…” you sputter, trying to casually walk away from Namjoon, but ultimately failing when he grips your waist again and pulls you against him.
“Y/N, I think we’re both ready for this commitment. Sober up and maybe I’ll ask soon!”
“HOBI I WANT KISSES, PLEEAAAAAASE,” you whine while Hoseok holds you on his back.
“Y/n just wait 5 more minutes and we’ll be home alright?” Hoseok pants, trying to walk faster.
“BABY PLEAAAASE I LOVE YOU,” you wail into his neck.
Hoseok sighs, puts you down onto your feet and turns around, but to his surprise, you’re kneeling with your hand in the air.
“Y/n get off the ground, I don’t want your pants to get dirt-”
“DEAR JUNG HOSEOK, MY BOYFRIEND FOR 4-ISH YEARS,” you yell, getting the attention of a couple people on the street, “WILL YOU TAKE ME, Y/N, TO BE YOUR LAWFULLY WEDDED WIFE?”
“It’s been 5 years y/n,” Hoseok chuckles as he lifts you off the floor again so easily and you smile as he whispers into your ear,
“Dear y/n, yes.”
You sit on Yoongi’s lap, playing with all the buttons on his laptop.
“Hey Yoongs, what does this button do?” You ask while pressing the ‘H’ on the keyboard.
“It’s an ‘H’ button y/n, it’ll type the letter ‘H’,” Yoongi chuckles at your drunken state.
“Pfft I knew that,” you say puffing up your chest and turning to face him.
“Y/n I know you wanna play, but I really have to get some work done…” Yoongi yawns.
“Hey Yoongi…” Yoongi looks at you curiously and for a moment you were about to back out, but the alcohol gave you confidence to speak your mind, “well the thing is… We don’t really hang out together anymore because of your work and I know it’s super important to you, but it would be nice is you spent a little time with me. When you asked me out 6 years ago, I went into this relationship knowing you were going to be busy, but there’s weeks where I don’t even get to see you and it’s hard. Maybe you could take some days off for me and we can like go snowboarding or get married or something fun, you know? I don’t think I’m asking for too much… Just… a little more time together?”
“Get…. married?” Yoongi whispers.
Suddenly you feel sober as Yoongi just stares at you, making the atmosphere in the room 100x scarier.
“Oh haha did I say get married… I mean we don’t have to do something that drasti-”
“What if I want to get married?” Yoongi smiles calmly, “You’re right y/n, I don’t spend enough time with you, but I still love you just as much as the time I asked you out 6 years ago and I want to show you that. We’ll talk about this tomorrow when your sober, but for now let’s go home and get some rest.”
“I am not drunk because 1)I am not drunk and 2)I am not drunk,” you slur while half slipping of the chair you were slumped on.
“Did I ask?” Jin laughs and gives you some water to drink so that your hangover wouldn’t be so bad the next day.
“Well, no… Oh hey, you look really handsome today. Like you’re always handsome, but you look fucking angelic today oh my gosh,” you gasp, “wait I have a really good idea.”
Jin waits for you to tell him you idea, but after a minute he can still see the gears in your head grinding.
“Uh y/n, you gonna tell me your idea?”
“Oh haha yeah, so my idea is that since we’re both super beautiful, we can buy a huge pink castle, get married and become the prince and princess of the world.”
“That’s your idea..?” Jin asks.
“Yes, you don’t like it?” You pout and look down at your lap.
“No it’s not like that, I like all your ideas and if you’re happy then, sure we can buy a castle. But we don’t have to be married for you to be my princess ;)”
Hey sorry for delaying this post, but this whole thing got deleted 2 times for some reason. Fortunately, the first time my Namjoon part of the scenario/reaction thing was saved on google docs, and the second time I had everyone except Jin saved on docs. It sucks, but I’m glad I was able to finish. I apologize for not giving this my all, I just feel really bored with re-writing.
Once you and Nat
have left all the suitcases on the rooms, she tells you that it’s
time to go to the supermarket. You both get into the car and drive to
the nearest store, which is about twenty minutes away.
Entering the big
supermarket, Nat grabs a small piece of paper from her right pocket
where she has written everything that you need to buy.
“Let’s see… We
should go and grab some duck.”
laughs at the disgusted face you give her and starts walking down the
“Yes, duck. They
also want caviar.”
“Of course they
want that.” You try not to roll your eyes at every item of food
that Nat picks.
Posh people are
always so extra, even with their food. It makes you sick.
After what feels
like three hours, Nat and you finally leave the supermarket and go
back to the car. When you arrive home, she instructs you to go put
all of the food on the kitchen and wait for her to start making
“Okay, I’m gonna
start with the duck, prepare the table.”
You grab a
beautiful, light purple tablecloth and walk to the living room. Bucky
is sitting on the sofa with his phone on his hands. He is wearing a
black sweater with some jeans. His beanie is gone, showing his
smooth, black hair. At first, he doesn’t notice you, so you don’t
say anything and do your job quietly. You are ready to go back to the
kitchen again when he turns his head slightly, seeing you.
“Hey!” He gets
up from the sofa and walks to you. “What’s for dinner?”
“Nat is making
duck.” His beautiful smile turns into a disgusted expression. “You
don’t like it? I can tell her to do something else?”
“No, no! It’s
okay. Nat knows that I hate it, but my mom has probably told her to
make it for dinner. It’s tradition to eat duck the first night we
“Yep.” He nods
his head and you grin at him.
“Well, I’m not
eating duck, either.”
“You don’t like
tasted it, but I don’t want to. I’ll probably drive to the
nearest McDonald’s and buy me something.”
Actually… Can you buy me something? Whatever you want.” Bucky
grabs some bills from his pocket and offers them to you.
“Done.” You take
the money and he winks at you, making your limbs tingle.
You go to the
kitchen again with the biggest smile on your face. Nat is putting the
duck in the oven when you enter.
“What took you so
“Bucky asked me to
go to McDonald’s and pick up some food for him.” You casually
shrug your shoulders at her, trying not to smile.
“Yeah, he hates
duck.” Nat closes the oven and looks at you. “Finish the table,
I’ll make the salad.”
After dinner is over
Nat and you start clearing the table. Soon, every member of the
family starts to go to their rooms. You grab the last dishes and go
to the kitchen. You are putting them in the dishwasher when you feel
a firm hand on your waist. Turning around quickly, your eyes lock
is still up, right?” Your lips open slightly and you feel
speechless for some seconds.
“Ye-yeah. Sure. I
was just about to go.”
“Cool.” His hand
gives your waist a little squeeze and then he is gone.
You rub your eyes
with your hands and turn around, meeting with Nat’s smirk.
throw your arms up.
fall for him, (Y/N).”
ridiculous.” You roll your eyes at her.
warning you.” She sighs. “Look, Bucky has bring a different girl
here every single year. But this is the second year that Dot has come
here and that’s a record. What I mean is that don’t get attached
to him. Bucky likes to play around, to flirt. But I’m sure his
mother is pressuring him to put a ring on Dot’s finger.”
“A ring?!” You
look astonished at her. “Nat, if this is the second year that she
has come here, it means that they’ve been dating for two years,
three years top. How is he going to marry her?!”
“If it was for him
he probably wouldn’t do it! Look, if he gets engaged with her, it
will be because of Winifred.”
Nat shrugs her
shoulders at your words and keeps cleaning the kitchen.
going to McDonald’s, grab a couple of menus and have a nice dinner.
Do you want something?”
“No, I’m good
with the duck.” She smiles at you. “Just, don’t take too long,
you’re coming with me tomorrow, I want you to meet some of my
“Okay.” You wave
at her and go to the car.
After twenty long
minutes, you finally arrive back home. You grab the big bag with your
left hand and with the other you open the door to the house trying to
be as quiet as possible.
“Let me help you
with that.” You hear a voice and look over the bag to see Bucky
smiling at you.
He grabs the bag
from your hand and signals you to go to the kitchen. You close the
door and follow him. Once you are there, he takes all the food out,
giving you a burger and your fries. You grab two beers and handle him
Sitting on the
chairs, you watch him as he attacks his burger. The curiosity is
eating you out, so you decide to ask him.
“So… How long
have you and Dot been going out?” He looks at you and you can see
the surprise on his beautiful eyes. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t
have asked you that.”
“No, no, it’s
okay. I just thought you were the quiet type.” He grabs his beer
and drinks some. “We’ve been dating for two years.”
“Oh, nice.” You
eat some of your fries. “You seem happy with her.”
really sweet.” Bucky doesn’t look you in the eyes as he talks and
you furrow your brows. “Everyone is sure that she is the one for
“And are you
sure?” Bucky and you lock eyes for a couple of seconds. You can
feel your heart beating quickly against your chest as he looks down
and a little smirk appears on his face.
“I don’t know,
honestly. But my mom has been telling me to ask her to marry me.”
“Do you want to
“Then tell your
“I don’t think
that’s how things work.”
“It is how they
work in the real world. What’s the worst thing that could happen?”
“You are a bit
nosy, you knew that?” He smiles playfully at you and you return the
“I’m sorry, I
shouldn’t have gone that far with the questions.” You pick up the
papers on the table and throw everything in the trash. Bucky is still
eating some of his fries. “Good night, Bucky.”
Wake up!” Nat shakes you and you groan at her.
“What time is it?”
“Are you nuts?!”
You open one eye to look at her.
“We have to
prepare breakfast, remember? Now go to the shower and put your
uniform on, I’ll see you in the kitchen.”
You groan again and
finally get up. Looking through the window, you see the big mountains
being illuminated by the sun rays. You try to smile and be positive
and you head to the shower.
When you enter the
kitchen, half of the breakfast is already done.
things to the living room, hurry!”
Nat!” She glares at you and you chuckle at her expression as you
grab the plate full of eggs.
You are carrying the
orange juice to the table, but when you arrive there everyone is
You smile politely at everyone, your eyes landing on Bucky’s.
He smiles at you,
but he turns to Dot when she whispers something on his ear. He laughs
and pecks her lips and you quickly look away, pouring some juice on
Winifred’s glass. Nat enters the living room with the coffee and
“Nat, you already
know that all the skiing gear is in the garage. Take what you need.”
“(Y/N), darling, I
suppose you ski?” Winifred looks at you with a beautiful smile that
“We have snowboard
tables and boots, take what you want.” George smiles happily at you
and you thank him.
When the family is
gone, Nat takes your hand, leading you to the garage.
everything you need, we are leaving in ten minutes.”
You look around and
finally pick up some white boots, a blue table and white gear and put
it on as quickly as you can. Grabbing some orange glasses and a
really cute, blue beanie, you get out of the chalet to see Nat
already waiting for you.
Since the house is
next to the mountains, you go walking until you are in front of the
chairlift. Nat looks around until she waves at someone. You look
towards the direction she is looking and see a girl and a boy. When
they are closer, you can see that the girl has two long, brown braids
and she is wearing a sweatshirt that indicates that she is a monitor.
The boy carries his skis in one hand and on the other he has his
beanie. You can see his blonde hair shining in the sun and you smile
at them when they are in front of you.
“Nat!” The girls
exclaims and hugs her tightly, then turns to you. “Hi, I’m Wanda,
“Oh! Hello, I’m
(Y/N).” You smile at her and she kisses you on the cheek.
“Hey, Nat.” The
boy leans to hug Nat and then he kisses your cheek. “I’m Steve.”
“Nice to meet you,
After making some
small talk with the both of them, Wanda has to leave to go to one of
“I’m going to
find Buck, girls. Nat, I’ll see you later! You too, (Y/N)!” You
both wave at him and go to the chairlift.
Once you are seated
and going up you look at Nat.
“How is that Steve
and Bucky know each other?”
friends since childhood. Steve comes to the chalet a lot, Winifred
and George consider him his son.”
“Does he has a
girlfriend, too?” Nat looks at you and you can see how she tenses
up at the question.
“No, he doesn’t.”
raise a brow at her. “Do you like him?” She looks at you with her
eyes wide open.
“Of course not!
And anyway, if I liked him it’s not like he is going to be with a
girl like me.”
“Never say never.”
She glares at you and you chuckle at her expression.
After a long day of
snowboarding, you finally arrive back home. You carry Nat’s skis
and your table to the garage. When you arrive there, you see Bucky
placing a set of skis in one of the shelves.
“Hey.” You greet
him with a smile.
“Hi, how was your

words and he approaches you.
“I think you would
make an incredible journalist.” You laugh at his words.
“You don’t even
know if I am good at writing.”
“I’m sure you
are.” He bits his bottom lip and you realize just how close you are
It feels like hours
until he decides to smirk at you and leave the room. When he is out
of your sight, you groan heavily and shake your arms at your sides.
You don’t know this man, yet he makes you feel a thousand things.
Every time you are near him you feel as if you can’t breath, your
palms start to sweat and your heart beats faster. You groan again,
but this time loudly.

“Is it Bucky?”
You glare at her but she ignores you. “Jesus, you fell for him
faster than I thought.”
“I didn’t fell
for him, Nat! And I am not doing it!”
(Y/N), he is a player, okay? He doesn’t know how to have a
relationship. It’s a miracle that Dot is still with him. I’m just
saying, he’ll probably try to flirt with you, to get in your pants.
It’s everything that he cares about.”
You throw a
suspicious look at her.
“Have you been
with Bucky before?”
“What?! Of course
not! Gross!” She leaves her gear on the table and turns around to
look at you. “But I’ve seen many chalet girls leaving this house
with a broken heart because of him.”
“He has hooked up
with the chalet girls?”
“Chalet girls, ski
monitors, tourists… It doesn’t matter to him. He is fine with
everything. So think about it twice before he charms you.”
You roll your eyes
at her and go upstairs to your room. You are definitely not going to
fall for Bucky Barnes.

“ok, so what’s your favorite food?” sans asks as he scribbles your previous answer down on a notepad.
“Umm…” you pause for a moment, thinking back to memories of the surface. For the last few days, sans has been behaving even stranger than before. He’s been…careful with you. At first, when he visited you, he would sit down next to you quietly and drum his fingers on the floor. Once in a while, he would ask you a random question and nod to himself. His questions are still random, but they’re more frequent and he carries a notebook with him. “Sushi.” you answer simply.
He stares at you incredulously, “are you serious?”
You just shrug, “Yeah, I like it. I think it’s pretty good.”
what type of winter activity do you think the boys would like to do with their s/o (if this hasn't been done yet i don't think i saw this)?
Well, I’ve done one for activities on Christmas, but not one for winter activities in general, so here we go ^^
Jin: He likes snowboarding (and maybe skiing as well, I’m not sure), so I’m pretty sure he’d love to do that with his partner if he got the opportunity. There’d probably be some baking as well.
Yoongi: He’s not a very active person, and he tends to get pretty cold during winter (just look at his huge ass scarves), so he would probably prefer lazing around inside. But he’d probably say yes if his partner wanted to do anything, and he’d love to go on walks with Holly and his s/o.
Hobi: Another one I can really see enjoying skiing, and probably ice skating. He’d find that very fun, especially as a couple’s activity. I can also kind of see him wanting to spend a night in an outside hot tub.
Namjoon: He’d definitely say yes if his partner wanted to do anything, but he probably wouldn’t come up with too many ideas himself. I can see him wanting to travel somewhere though. Where depends on how much time he’s got. But cuddling by a fire is a must for him. Stargazing as well.
Jimin: He’d probably like a lot of indoor activities. Like, reading, baking, watching Christmas movies, cuddle… Not very specific for winter, but still. But I can definitely see him wanting to go hiking somewhere, and then spend a few hours in front of a fire, eating toast and roasting marshmallows.
Taehyung: Man, there’s a lot of things he would want to do. Snowball fights, building snowmen, drink hot chocolate 24/7, go dogsledding, go ice skating, go skiing/snowboarding, go hiking, go snowmobiling, sing Christmas songs all night, cuddle, cuddle, cudDLE, CUDDLE, C U D D L E. He probably wouldn’t get to do all of it, but he’d want to.
Jungkook: Pretty much the same as Tae, tbh. Only less hot chocolate and cuddles, and more skiing and hiking.

GOM + Takao + Fukui+ Kasamatsu + Kagami end up sleepin next to the futon their crush is in. What happens? ;3 ~
so many baes in one ask is just <3
Akashi: It wasn’t like Akashi to get flustered by something like this. He was determined to stay calm.
But he really couldn’t sleep.
“Sleep with me. Please.”
“That’s incredibly inappropriate.”
“No, not like that-”
Aomine: “So, you wanna fuck?"
Fukui: "So, what do you like doing in your spare time?”
How had you known that he was still awake? He internally groaned. Now he had to (somehow) talk to you and not make a fool out of himself.
“Snowboarding, I guess. With the Winter Cup, I haven’t really had any time, so… we’ve got another match soon - if we lose, I’ll go snowboarding ‘cuz I’m upset, if we win, I’ll go to celebrate.”
“That sounds like a solid plan.”
“Do you like snowboarding?”
“It’s impossible to live in Akita and not have tried it, right? I go every so often. I have to admit, it’s quite relaxing.”
You laugh, and Fukui laughs too. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad, and maybe he wouldn’t do anything too stupid.
Kagami: The ceiling has never before been so interesting. He can pick out the detailing, even in the dark.
He was doing fine, until you’d started speaking.
And then he’d stuttered.
“I can’t sleep.”
“You could… count sheep?”
“Why would I want to count sheep…?”
“I did it all the time in America; it’s meant to help you fall asleep. It doesn’t really work for me, so I’m not sure.”
You laugh. “Thanks, Kagami.”
Kasamatsu: He tries to feign sleeping, taking deep, even breaths. He’s turned away from you. He really hopes you’re asleep.
Once he got out of this room, he’d kick the brat into next week.
As long as he survived sleeping here, with you.
Kise: I can’t believe this…
He’s sure someone set him up. Well, there’s nothing he can do - if he so much as accuses one of his senpai, Kasamatsu will give him the longest lecture (and maybe even increase his training to unimaginable heights).
He scrambles out of his own futon and tries to get into yours. There’s hardly any space so you try and push Kise out.
“Kise, I’m trying to sleep-”
“You had a whole hour to try and sleep. I’m cold~”
You kick him in the face. He falls, and you don’t hear much apart from whines of “Why are you so mean to me?”.
Kuroko: Neither of you can sleep. It’s a little annoying - tomorrow’s a big day.
“(l/n)-san, are you awake?”
“Would you like to talk?”
Kuroko’s calm, but only because he’s looking up at the ceiling. If he so much as glanced at your face, he definitely wouldn’t have been able to keep his cool.
Midorima: He can’t deal with this. You’ve fallen asleep in the futon next to him, content as ever. He’s still wide awake.
You let out a small snore in response.
Still no answer.
He really needs to talk to you, so he taps your shoulder. As if teasing him, you turn towards him, your lips set in a small pout.
He turns away. Fate definitely was not on his side. How could he sleep with you beside him?
Murasakibara: “Murasakibara, you can’t just eat before bed.”
“I can and I will. (l/n)-chin can’t stop me.”
You sigh. He was uncooperative at times, but sleep was really important and you kinda did want to have some energy tomorrow. As if rebelling against your thoughts, he chews louder.
“Whatcha gonna do?” he says, his tone teasing and taunting.
You roll out of your futon and jump on top of his. You were planning on taking his snacks away, but woah. There are a lot.
“Can you sleep with me tonight, (l/n)-chin?”
“I-I guess so.”
Takao: All of Shuutoku were conspiring against him. They wanted him to suffer, see him be… dare he say it… uncool.
He always had a tendency to say stupid things around his crush, and act like a complete idiot. And they expected him to stay calm in this kind of situation?
“Takao? Are you sleeping?”
That voice, again. He slides underneath the futon and hopes the ground will swallow him whole before he does something idiotic.
Powder Vision with Snowboard Filmmaker @aaronleyland
To see more snowboarding photos of Aaron Leyland in action with his friends, follow @aaronleyland on Instagram.
“I think I was about 14 or 15 when I told my parents that I wanted to make snowboard movies for a living,” says Aaron Leyland (aaronleyland), a filmmaker and photographer from British Columbia, Canada. “When I first started snowboarding we went regardless of conditions. We wouldn’t even check the snow report—rain, snow, wind, it didn’t matter to us at the time—just pack the car and go.
Aaron isn’t so cavalier now with weather forecasts and terrain conditions before setting out on a shoot, but his passion for snowboarding adventures isn’t any less wild than when he was young. “What keeps me going is the search for new terrain, to be able to cruise through deep snow on the sleds, breaking trail through the trees and ending up in the alpine with perfect features to snowboard on,” says Aaron. “It’s easier said than done, the stars don’t often align like that, but they do occasionally and that’s what really motivates me.”
