    Today’s #PottermoreTreat is a beautiful concept drawing of an eerie magical creature – the Thestral – which you’ll be learning more about soon. Do you know why Harry was only able to see these unnerving creatures in his fifth year at Hogwarts?

    It’s because Thestrals can only been seen by those who have seen death, i.e. Harry can see them because he saw Cedrick being killed by Voldemort, and Luna can see them as she saw her mum die when she was nine.


    True, but didn’t Lilly die right in front of baby Harry? I’ve always wondered why that didn’t count.

    That sounds cool. BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?

    (Helicarrier Hulk wakes up, no control, attacks everyone. New York Hulk is good guy buddy only hurt bad guy. Wait! OK! Loki was harshing the vibe on the helicarrier. No, wait further, Loki was just as there in New York. In fact, quite close to Mr. Grabby Hulk.)

    I am continually drawn to this dumb film by the interaction between Downey and Ruffalo. I am continually put off by this dumb film by how dumb it is.

    Wow, look at this! It’s 2014, and people are still saying things like this! Amazing!!! :D Here, let me explain to you why, and how:

    First of all, why do people keep forgetting that The Incredible Hulk happened?? In that film it was shown that Bruce can actually control the Hulk when he deliberately hulks out.

    Please notice that Bruce hulked out on the helicarrier because something blew up and he was thrown so hard he fell one floor down through the window. It was obvious that Bruce was hurt and in danger.

    Hulk exists to protect Bruce, Bruce was in danger, you do the math.

    Not to mention that Bruce was understandably angry at Natasha and Fury because he felt like they’d lied to him. (Therefore, causing Hulk to went after Natasha).

    Manhattan Hulk showed up because Bruce ‘asked’ him to. Because he fucking did it on purpose. The Hulk is the physical manifestation of Bruce’s emotions — all his anger, frustration, empathy, sadness, disappointment, sympathy, love, hate, everything. That’s why Hulk knew which are the bad ones and which are the good ones, that’s why he saved Tony from falling off the sky, that’s why he listened to Steve’s orders. Hulk isn’t just some mindless beast who has no feelings whatsoever. He recognised and saved Betty in the midst of his rampage in TIH, looked hesitant when he saw the fear in Natasha’s eyes (it was brief but it was there), punched Thor as a payback, etc. Hulk is not that simple.

    Bottom line is, that Bruce can control the Hulk to some degree when he has the option or actually gets to choose, and that’s not what happened on the helicarrier.

    So, yea, that’s how.

    In this post the uneducated are taught that The Hulk isn’t a mindless monster born simply out of rage.

    Anybody gonna mention that our lowdown was given to us DIRECTLY FROM MR. BRUCE HIMSELF?!

    Took me until that last comment to realize it is actually Mark Ruffalo, the actor who planed Bruce Banner, who left that incredibly informative comment. Much respect, sir!

    This is my favorite.

    reblogging this for not only Mark Ruffalo, but also for the amazing, insightful comment i was going to reblog it for before i knew he had made it.

    I yelled “OH FUCK” and scared my husband when I realized it was Mark replying.

    I would love to know the actual number of people who think that Mark Ruffalo himself replied to this BECAUSE IT WAS NOT HIM. Jesus.

    Currently Jasnikowski is one of the leading developers of fantastic realism in Poland, jogo paintings are in collections all over the world.
    Images Jaroslaw Jaśnikowskiego are kind of relationship with the artist’s journey through unknown worlds. By creating a different reality, put it right completely different physics, mocking yourself with gravity or the properties of matter. Although in many places, “Alternate Worlds Jarka very similar to the reality that we encounter every day, it very quickly see that this apparent similarity is only pillar on which the artist builds his own world. Painting Jaśnikowskiego is also characterized by a love of the author for any kind of fantastic vehicles, machines, as well as a love for Gothic. His paintings are shrouded in dark mystery, creating a unique atmosphere characteristic of the work of this artist.

    Good luck affording a place to live. Forget being able to fucking eat “healthy” like you’re “supposed to” (aka, morally obligated to).

    I would love to see this exact visual but for 30-40 years ago.
