Family, Friends, and Future: According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. David Karp 1:00 PM to Team Friends and colleagues After nearly 11 years, I've decided that 2017 will be my last year at Tumblr. It is truly overwhelming to write those words. But I have the comfort of knowing I leave Tumblr in better hands than my own. Jeff is the most capable and caring leader l've ever met, which I say with no exaggeration. Simon has worked tirelessly to support us and everything that makes Tumblr special. But even more, they are both true believers in what we've built and how much we can still do. I look back with so much pride. At a generation of artists, writers, creators, curators, and crusaders that have redefined our culture, and who we have helped to empower. There are no words, though, that can express how sincerely grateful I am for the privilege of working with you. This team and place has been my family and home for most of my adult life. That I have gotten to spend this time working with people so spectacularly talented and unstoppably optimistic is a blessing I hope you have shared, and will continue to share. I beg you to understand that my decision comes after months of reflection on my personal ambitions, and at no cost to my hopefulness for Tumblr's future or the impact I know it can have. The internet is at a crossroads of which this team can play a fundamental role in shaping. You are in the driver seat, and I am so excited to see where you go! Thank you for allowing me this honor, David david:Letter I just sent to my teamย โ™ฅ๏ธ

Arsenal, Batman, and Climbing: EXPLOSIVE GEL @HISTORYORTHEBATMAN RAT "What's In That Utility Belt: A History of Batman Gadgets" - Explosive Gel: In August of 2009, Rocksteady Studios with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment developed the video game 'Batman: Arkham Asylum for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The game was written by 'Batman: The Animated Series' Paul Dini , who created an entirely original plot within the Batman mythos. Wanting to have a central focus setting in the game to limit the Dark Knight's access to help within Gotham, 'Arkham Asylum' was visually inspired by stories such as Grant Morrison and Dave McKean's 1989 one shot graphic novel "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth". The voice cast included the original BTAS talents such as Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill @HamillHimself as Joker and Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn. Batman has to fight his way through a Joker controlled Arkham Asylum to stop the detonation of hidden bombs throughout the city of Gotham. In gameplay, Batman's detective skills are enhanced with 'Detective Vision', able to examine objects and individuals providing contextual evidence, and his combat skills are brilliantly showcased with an array of running, kicking, jumping, climbing, and gliding, including dozens of lethal combos, providing a new look into Gotham's infamous insane asylum. Seen in this game and the following sequel and prequel chapters of Arkham City (2011), Arkham Origins (2013) and Arkham Knight (2015), many new gadgets were created to aid the Batman in gameplay, such as Explosive Gel. The Dark Knight would spray an amount of gelignite (in the shape of a crude Bat symbol) on a supposedly weak surface, then would detonate the destructive gel to explode. The Explosive Gel can be used to tear down a surface or used as a weapon against enemies; if henchmen are in the radius of a blast caused by the gadget, it would knock them out temporarily. The Explosive Gel was also an important part in taking down the Titan-enhanced Joker towards the end of "Batman: Arkham Asylum" chapter (clip presented). Even in this highly popular video game franchise, the Caped Crusader's arsenal continues to evolve with the 78 year old character. โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡๐ŸŽฎ
