‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’
what if i cut off your left leg

this is a golden post
This is what modern DC movies are about and it’s the one reason they DESTROY me for months after I see them. I LEARN something, something beautiful or something terrible but I do learn. I didn’t feel up to going to work the day after TDK because I really had to think about who I was and what I was doing with my life. Movies should hamstring you that way, especially superhero movies. They should make you think and think hard, they should give you no choice but to engage or miss the point entirely. If you refuse to give a truly great movie like this one or Man of Steel the attention it requires to make an impact, well that is entirely your fault and entirely your loss.
A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN
You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL.
Another cool crow deal: Once, when trying to assess if crows could reason and use tools, scientists had two crows who didn’t know each other each take a wire from a table (one was hooked, one was straight) and try to grab meat from a bottle with it. The crows could see each other, though they had separate bottles. Only the straight wire worked for this, so they hypothesized that if crows could reason, the second trial would have the two crows fighting over the straight wire. The second trial started and, to the surprise of the scientists, the two crows both went for the bent wire, one held it down and the other unbent it. They both got meat out of their bottles. They came to a peaceful solution without verbal communication. Crows are probably smarter than we are.
I love crows. Bird behavior in general interests me and corvids especially have shown really high levels of intelligence.
There’s a video on youtube somewhere where a thirsty little crow is at an amusement park, and he finds some humans with a water bottle. He starts pecking at the cap and at first the people didn’t catch on, but he kept persisting, trying to get at the cap.
It took a little bit for the humans to get it but they unscrewed the cap for him, and filled it with water and he drank from it.
The crow was so used to seeing people drinking out of these magical liquid containers and he knew exactly where it came out of and was able to communicate what exactly he wanted.
Come not between a dragon and his wrath.
Everyone wants a Black Widow movie.

In which RDJ attempts to shame Marvel into giving the fandom all the standalone franchise movies we’ve been begging for, proving once again that he is a lovely, lovely man.
