Detail view an oaken casket lid containing a preserved Norse giant’s heart. (5th century)
The inscription on the casket is written in old Norse runes and reads…“Behold! Within this casket lies the heart of the fierce and terrible giant known as Hrungnir, slain this day by Fafrd the Red whose bravery and cunning shall live forever!”
Who actually finds those “10 REASONS WHY YOU MUST BE FAT” things informative really?
- Cakes are bad
- Nachos are bad
- Pizza is bad
- Dougnuts? you better believe those are bad.
Who reads those and goes “OMG really? that makes so much sense to me now!”
Eternal Flame Falls, Chestnut Ridge Park, NY. Tucked deep within Chestnut Ridge Park, New York, is a small waterfall called the Eternal Flame Falls. The waterfall is so called because of a simple phenomenon – a natural gas leak just underneath the falls that just happens to be burning. The flame is not really “eternal” in the sense that it goes out occasionally. Often it is re-lit by the next hiker that finds it extinguished.

Do you know what I like the most here? They’re women and they ARE NOT wearing super sexualized leather clothes or posing in impossible ways.
And, of course, the Captain America 40’s hair.
this is perfect.
THIS is how you do genderbends. There is NO reason to sexualize their costumes or their poses unless you’re going for a porn thing (perfectly acceptable). The only costume that’s really been changed at all is Bruce’s and all they’ve really done is exchanged the pants for a pencil skirt. Not a mini-skirt. A pencil skirt.
Also the fact that Nat’s costume is completely unchanged on the male version just goes to show how little the original is sexualized, despite what people think. It’s figure-hugging, yes. So is Cap’s, so is Clint’s, so is Tony’s for that matter. Hulk strips down to a pair of ripped shorts, for christ’s sake. It looks like her butt is emphasized because Scarlett happens to have a bangin’ ass that looks good in a cat-suit. If she had a flat butt, it would look flat.
Okay, I’m done.
This is abso-fucking-lutely brilliant. Especially everyone’s hair.
The decision to keep Fury bald is just amazing. One thing about super-ladies that really bothers me is that they always have this mass of hair that is just begging to be grabbed by some assailant or getting in their face. Lady Thor’s braids are also fantastic, very true to Norse tradition, and Lady Tony’s hair is perfect.
I REALLY LIKE THE HAIR
yup. Bald Fury is my favorite part. i wonder how women dont get their hair snagged on more stuff in action flicks. in real life you always go for the hair first… not that any of this stuff happens in real life.
never NOT reblogging this. When people say this, they’re implying that a mans natural state is ‘rapist’ - that when they see a woman, they must CONTROL themselves so they don’t rape them - as if they have no control over themselves because they’re some sort of sexual beast.
YOU GO GIRL!
this is beautiful. c’:
“So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures. I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess…We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world”

This is awesome!
