what just happened? WHAT JUST HAPPENED? AOBA.
LET ME EXPLAIN TO YOU WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED.
what just happened is that you just spent the last 23 years of your life living with 2 factions of mental processes in your head that were the Freudian equivalent of the Id and the Superego,…
the fact that there’s only about 5000 people who’ve reblogged this scares me. That means that less that 5000 people know where these come from.
I feel old…
literally every person on earth has read the very hungry caterpillar
I am 18.. What is the very hungry caterpillar?
are you joking
And that ladies is why secrateriat is boss
Not only that, but Secretariat utilized something called a double-suspension transverse gallop that allowed him to carry sprint speed over distances of more than half a mile. In a normal, single-suspension transverse gallop there is only one moment where all four hooves leave the ground
in a double-suspension transverse gallop there are two
Secretariat had a stride longer than any other horse, but he also ran elastically, and was able to develop an extraordinary amount of downward-and-backward thrust, thus achieving double-suspension. He ran straighter and more efficiently than any other horse.
I’M SO INTRIGUED *gets pencil and paper*
Do you think his incredibly elastic gait contributed to his double-suspension gallop? What factors contribute to a horse preferring double-suspension over single-suspension? Is it a genetic behavior? Is it influenced by physical factors (IE Secretariat’s extraordinary gait)? Or is it purely a fluke when a horse uses the double-suspension gallop? What other horses did this? WHERE CAN I READ MORE????? *HEAVY BREATHING*
The elasticity refers to the flexibility of his back and loin conformation. The muscles of the pelvis, rib cage, and spine form a flexible and powerful spring that is the biomechanical root of speed. Secretariat had increased ability to coil the loin, and with it, increased elastic up-and-down flexibility of the back. The more flexible the back is, the longer the stride.
It is this long stride, and the incredibly powerful downward-and-backward thrust of his hind legs that allowed him to have a double-suspension transverse gallop. I don’t know of any other horses that have achieved double suspension, but it has been speculated that if we had more footage of Man O’ War we would see that he ran at a double-suspension transverse gallop as well.
This season irked me at how Skye was Coulson’s little girl and he basically left out Simmons. Simmons is a SHIELD member and was always loyal. Skye was in the Rising Tide and wasn’t always loyal, yet anything Skye says goes for Coulson. It irks me.
Actually, now that I think of it, it’s a very valid peeve. Coulson does have favorites, and they are Skye and May. Everyone else is a subordinate, and will be treated as such.
That is why Coulson is my LEAST favorite character!!!!!
I think it was more like “Oh this girl is all alone and has never had any family, perhaps I shall be the person she should’ve had growing up.” And even then, when Skye fucked up she needed to earn the team’s and Coulson’s respect all over again.
Yeah. But the way he treated Jemma in season 1 sometimes was totally uncalled for. He wasn’t the same patient man with her that he was with Skye. And it sucks because Jemma is an only child who is super estranged from her own family. And what she’s been through in just one season… Sigh… My poor Jemma Simmons… You don’t deserve all this baby girl. You wanted adventure but found tragedy instead. :(
“And it sucks because Jemma is an only child who is super estranged from her own family.”
She’s not super estranged. The most the show’s ever given us is that she went a few weeks without speaking to them. And anyone would be hesitant to talk to their parents after they almost died and couldn’t tell them about it, couldn’t tell them about anything. Her parents sounded like they cared a lot about her with the way Jemma speaks about them in F.Z.Z.T., when Jemma gives Coulson instructions on how to break the news to them. Skye, on the other hand, never had any family and Skye needed someone like Coulson. The people who need each other tend to congregate towards one another. This is the case with May and Coulson, Ward and Skye, Fitz and Jemma. And Coulson was still fatherly towards Jemma.
Coulson treated everyone on the team the way the situation called for (except perhaps a couple times with Ward). He yells at Fitzsimmons and that motivates them to find a solution. He becomes stern with Jemma when she continues trying to test the blood, in the same way he gets angry with Skye whenever she steps over the line. He treats them fairly, he just treats Skye as more of a daughter because she’s never had any family.
Jemma didn’t need Coulson the way Skye did. Jemma needed Fitz.
rebloging for that last comment.
The writing and character interactions are never going to be what we as fans all hope for because it is simply too much, but agents of shield still does a remarkable job of making it feel right. Fitzsimmons are both trained agents of shield with some form of training and some Idea of protacal. Sky had none of that and is pretty much in the dark on how to execute tasks in the “right” way. Coulson HAS to be more patient with her if she will ever learn and he never puts his relationships with his other teammates no hold for her, he treats everyone the way that will work, get the job done and have the best possible outcome they can hope to get. He Treats his team like family, and just cause that family isn’t all hugs and soft words doesn’t make it any less.
Toph as a mother would be somewhat terrifying.
Lin tries to sneak out of the house without doing her chores, suddenly a voice bellows from across the house “I DIDN’T FEEL YOU CLEANING YOUR ROOM!”
Lin gets back from school with a report card “Tell me what you got in History” “…B+?” “You’re lying” *Metalbends a megaphone* “HEY TWIKLETOES! FLY OVER HERE AND READ THIS REPORT CARD FOR ME!”
Lin is learning earthbending ” Mom…my room dosn’t have any walls” “I know, I got rid of them. You have until tonight to make new ones, remember your stance!”
The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.

i went to school with a pair of identical twins and one time one of them was like “i’m so hot, i’d fuck me” and he turned to wink suggestively at his brother who just batted his eyelashes and blew a kiss at him
I’m laughing because I’ve seen this post at least four times on my dash today and every single one had a different picture of the hitachiin twins
