Planet earth is terrifying I hope I never see a volcano
hey, you should be glad these things are around, they’re a sign that Earth isn’t going to let cosmic radiation cook you alive anytime soon!
volcanoes erupt when plumes of liquid magma rise up through the more sluggish magma closer to Earth’s crust and melt their way up to the surface, like how the cheese bubbles up through your pot of unattended macaroni! (except WAY less delicious)
and this magma rises in the first place because it’s been superheated by Earth’s core, which is a constantly-rotating semifluid ball of supercompressed hellfire iron hotter than the surface of the sun!
the unimaginable pressure down there combined with the physical rotation turns Earth’s heart into a primitive dynamo engine that generates a powerful magnetic field, which acts like an enormous forcefield and prevents most of the cosmic radiation Earth encounters from ever reaching the surface!
which is good, because it would immediately blast the surface of the Earth clean of life if it ever did make landfall.
so if you ever do encounter an erupting volcano, remember that all things are connected, and stop to give Mama Earth a pat of thanks for protecting you from the cosmic forces of the universe which would very much like to make you extremely dead!
If you want context to Ladybug's reaction, I love marichat and in my head the two kinda had a thing going on, they like each other and they know the other likes them back, but things are too complicated and dangerous for them to date. but the whole thing is basically this post by @sabertoothwalrus
Part 3 incoming, but it's gonna take me a while to do, enjoy this bonus panels meanwhile:
honestly the funniest thing about minecraft rp is how some people will put so much time and effort into designing their skins and updating them to match the lore and their personal character arc as it progresses and then some people are just like yeah i'm a meme that was popular 3 years ago and this is my friend sonic the hedgehog
I saw an image that showed the new heroines this season and one of them was Mylène with the rat miraculous and she looks really cute!! 🐭💕 but I wanted to make my own design for her too. I'm really curious to see her episode since Mylène is such a shy girl and her becoming a hero will probably be a bit of a challenge for her.
I know zero french so I can’t really be clever or creative with names and don't know which words sound cute but Souris Rose maybe?? if the show was located in slovenia i’d name her Miška (pronounced: mishka) which just means small/cute mouse but is also a word of endearment and fits Mylène in every way.
It’s almost 1 AM but in the song Belle from Beauty and the Beast the villagers sing “I need six eggs” “that’s too expensive!” and then later in the song Gaston, Gaston says “when I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs every morning to help me get large, now that I’m grown I eat five dozen eggs so I’m roughly as large as a barge” Gaston has been eating dozens of eggs every day for his entire life and is single handedly creating an artificial egg scarcity in the village and driving up egg prices. this economy is in shambles.
I guess I'm here to defend Dream because it's the first time I see a content creator do something to donate to LGBTQ+ charities and people hating on them for it.
First off, let's get some facts right about things Dream had said before the pride merch announcement:
He is aware of rainbow capitalism and wasn't sure about doing this kind of merch because he didn't want people to believe he was using the LGBTQ+ community for profit.
He said that he would consider doing it if, and only if, his LGBTQ+ fans really wanted it.
In other words, he is doing it because his fans basically begged him to do it. And in exchange, he will be donating 10% of the revenue to charity.
Now, a lot of people are mad that "it's only 10%" and "he will keep 90%". That's just wrong. That's not what revenue means (google the difference between revenue and profit, at least) and that's not how businesses work, not in this case. The company Dream uses to make his merch is his own company, that means it's probably self-run and self-financed. Do you know how hard is that? Even if he makes millions, it's incredibly difficult to keep afloat, even more than normal nowdays because of the pandemic. So right now, almost all of the money he makes from merch goes back to the company to pay for production costs, pay business taxes, pay his workers a fair wage (and he puts a lot of emphasis in being ethical), etc. In other words, 10% is a lot and most likely all the profit he would usually make (though I'd dare to say he makes even less than that).
If he gave more of the revenue, he would have to get cheaper worse-quality materials, not pay his workers or operate at loss. None of those are a viable options... and you want him to give 100%? Get out of here and read a book. 10% is something. It can help more than you think. So tell me, how much are you donating?
Hate and be critical of capitalism all you want, but to start calling names and making Dream seem like this awful anti-gay person is too much. All he is doing is making MERCH for his FANS with his INDEPENDENT company and DONATING the profits to charity for LGBTQ+ Youth (+ he's also giving all the money he makes while streaming this month).
He isn't profiting off of this. Stop being weird and focus your energy into real problems (like the actually large companies that control media that cause real harm while dressing in rainbow colors).
