Casual reminder that in one of Leonardo da Vinci’s many notebooks containing innumerable artistic and scientific sketches and notes of incomprehensible importance, there is a sketch of two penises with legs and tails walking towards a crudely drawn anus.
The sketch was most likely done by Leonardo’s apprentice Salai, who was not only very likely one of Leonardo’s lovers, but who was also infamously mischievous. Better yet, the anus is literally labeled “Salai.”
So either Salai drew these while Leonardo wasn’t looking just to annoy his boyfriend, or Leonardo himself put actual time and energy into drawing these. Either way, the human race is truly blessed to have made such a discovery.
There are dick drawings like the ones you see on desks in school in Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks. Please cherish this information.
In the midst of exploring Renaissance Italy history for reasons, I have found a wonder.
First it means that there is no summer slump. Audiences will flock to theaters if the film debuting is something they all want to see. Second, it means that Marvel can do whatever it wants now. So if they choose not to make a female-centric or minority-centric superhero film, it’s because they just don’t want to. —

Anonyme a dit: how the hell is kitty pryde "borderline god tier"?
well first off she pretty much instantly beats any technology based hero/villain or any one with cybernetics (i.e. iron man, iron patriot, cable, bushwacker, deathlok)
and beyond that she can kill pretty much anyone she wants in the MCU in a couple different ways
first she could just straight up ghost your heart (or brain or any other vital organs) out of your body like she did to Emma Frost (notice how her diamond skin did squat to stop her)
or she could scramble your brains (and I’m pretty sure even people like thanos and apocalypse have some kind of squishy meat brain)
also, while she’s never done it, she could just phase you a mile below the surface of the earth (or even just a wall) and leave you there or easily leave something like a peddle in your brain or heart and there isn’t really anything you can do about it because even if you see her coming from a mile away as long as she’s intangible their’s nothing you can do to stop her, not even psychics can effect her while she’s phasing. seriously kitty pryde’s powers are one of the most under utilizized (and feared) things in the marvel universe
I remember when she joined the X-Men. Prof. X devised this whole elaborate sequence in the Danger Room to test her powers, and she just walked straight across the room with her eyes closed.
This is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen.

A revolution is not a painless march to the gates of freedom and justice. It is a struggle between rage and hope, between the temptation to destroy and the desire to build. Its temperament is desperate. It is a tormented response to the past, to all that has happened, the recalled and unrecalled injustices—for the memory of a revolution reaches much further back than the memory of its protagonists. — Hisham Matar on Libya: http://nyr.kr/1n7I6mX (via newyorker)
