I love Anastasia but they get so much shit wrong and I had to talk about it.
As a history major currently studying Soviet Russia I would like to formally bless this post
History majors have a hard time just sitting and enjoying period pieces….especially with others
"Wait a second…that’s not right…"
^ You understand me friend
I was about to be like “jeez it’s just a cartoon” but nearly died laughing at this post multiple time. read this post. it’s good post
"Non. I do not give une fuck"
jesus christ, its a kids movie! of course its not gonna be— this is a thing of beauty
We watched this in AP euro and all we did was make jokes
HOPEFULLY NOT WITH HIS BAT
Bartok was the best part of the movie.
it is a dreadful animated film, corny and saccharine and generally just quite bad…
So, as a history person, I love this. However, I gotta say, I loved this movie and many other historically inaccurate films. They would pique my interest in a historical topic/figure. Then, I’d go off in search of more information about that topic. Thank you, historically inaccurate movies, for making me become a good historian.
Thank u the fucking Leningrad bit has been eating me alive since I was a kid.
I think the animation is great tho. The story is great. And yes 10/10 totally would smang Dimitri.
Haha. I knew this stuff was historically bullshit, and I really didn’t care I still loved this movie as a kid. I had a plushie Pooka. THis was still too funny to not reblog.
The movie doesn’t even touch on how terrifying Rasputin’s control over the family, particularly her mother was. It also doesn’t even mention how freaking hard he was to kill. They poisoned him, shot him, beat him, threw him in a river, and THEN he dyed of hypothermia.
Terraformation of Mars: A New Look
We look at Mars now as a forgotten Red Planet that almost seems barren and life-less judging from our available images and study of it. But study shows Mars was once as ecologically prosperous as our own Earth. But what happened to all of its waters? Better yet why is it so dry and lacking any plants? Once the abundance of oxygen left and the waters froze over or dried off the planet became what it is today. But what if we can in a way reactivate’ Mars? Welcome to Mars, Terraformed’.
Transforming Mars will be a long and complicated process. But this is exactly the type of subject that interests space researchers like Christopher McKay of NASA Ames Research Center. First, greenhouse gases, like chlorofluorocarbons that contribute to the growing ozone layer on Earth, will be released into the atmosphere. This traps the heat from the Sun and raises the surface temperature by an average of 4 degrees Celsius. In order to achieve this, factories would manufacture chlorofluorocarbons derived from the air and soil. A single factory would require the power equivalent of a large nuclear power plant.
The increasing temperature would vaporize some of the carbon dioxide in the south polar cap. Introducing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere would produce additional warming, melting more of the polar cap until it has been vaporized completely. This would produce an average temperature rise of 70 degrees Celsius.
With the temperature this high, ice will start melting, providing the water needed to sustain life. This water would raise the atmospheric pressure to the equivalent of some mountaintops. While this would be a survivable level, it may still require the use of an oxygen mask. The next step, which may take up to several centuries, would be to plant trees that thrive on carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.
Terraforming is the process of transforming a hostile environment into one suitable for human life. Being that Mars is the most Earth-like planet, it is the best candidate for terraforming. Once just the subject of science fiction novels, it is now becoming a viable research area. The famed astronomer and Pulitzer prize winner, Carl Sagan, says that there is enormous promise in the search for ancient life on Mars. If life was once sustainable on Mars, it is important to know what caused Mars to evolve into the cold and lifeless planet it is today. With this knowledge, we can terraform Mars by reversing the process.
NASA scientists believe that it is technologically possible at the present time to create considerable global climate changes, allowing humans to live on Mars. But this will not be by any means an easy task. Raising the atmospheric pressure and surface temperature alone could be achieved in a few decades.
This research has strong environmental implications for Earth. What researchers are trying to do involves global warming, a sort of greenhouse effect on the cold planet Mars. Scientists may be able to test their hypotheses about global warming in their attempts to elevate Mars’ surface temperature. Likewise, once theories, they may be applied to our own planet in an attempt to reverse environmental damage done by pollution and deforestation.
Someone needs to write a fic of a battalion of superheroes randomly showing up at Sam’s doorstep because they have nowhere else to go.
"Hey Sam… so Pepper threw me out of my house and Rhodey’s on vacation in Mexico."
"Steve has spoken much of you Son of Wil. Do you wish to do battle against my adopted brother?"
"So… show an archer these wings I’ve heard so much about."
And Sam cursing Steve and Natasha in the depths of his soul because they started the trend and then told all their friends about it.
And then, one day everyone comes over and cleans Sam’s house, brings him enough groceries to stock his fridge, do his yard work, and make him dinner.
Because making Sam the babysitter for the Avengers isn’t cool and he needs to be pampered, too.
I love it how when Snape draws out his wand there are audible gasps but when Mcgonagall draws her wand there people are screaming out of the way.
They just know better.
damn snape is piss-OH MOTHERFUCKING SHIT, MOVE OUT, CLEAR THE WAY, MCGONAGALL IS PISSED.
I will stop reblogging this when it stops being awesome.
i feel like reading fanfic has kind of broken my desire to read published stories bc like theyre so bland tbh like. where the hell am i gonna get queer android romance in a bookstore. who writes about past assassins working together in a coffeeshop. all i see are straight white people making out like really like REALLY
