Fire, Hello, and Horses: neuxue Okay I know we always go on about Marvel's uncanny casting ability But if you thought they were the only ones, let me draw your attention to this man Viggo Mortensen, aka Aragorn son of Arathorn Earth would hike, often for more than a day, to remote filming locations, in costume, for the sake of authenticity was the best swordsman Bob Anderson (swordsmaster/instructor for LotR, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc) says he has ever trained occasionally writes poetry (more book!canon than film!canon but um hello) . does all his own stunts lived all over and speaks about 23940209384 languages you know that scene at the end of Fellowship when he's fighting the Uruk- hai? And one throws a dagger at him and he hits it away with his sword? Yeah, the guy who threw it was supposed to miss, but accidentally threw it directly at Viggo. Who just casually Aragorned and hit it away They actually cast Aragorn to play Aragorn obtrta Can I just add a few things? Would randomly give chocolates to the hobbits According to John Rhys-Davis (aka Gimli), whenever you have a large cast, one or two actors will naturally become the leaders. Guess who ended up in that role Single-handedly convinced cast and crew to camp out to shoot a scene in the sunrise Once hit a wild rabbit with his car by accident. Promptly stopped his car and went to see if the rabbit was dead, needed a vet or if the only merciful thing to do was to finish killing him. The rabbit was dead. Viggo realized he was hungry. So he took the rabbit, made a fire by the roadside and ate it. According to cast and crew, sometimes you'd just see him disappear in the middle of the night and suddenly he'd come back with fish he'd caught Had his sword with him at all times. Slept with once . The best horse rider of the cast, hands down. Rides better than lots of pros, according to a horse trainer. Couldn't bear to part with his horse at the end of the shooting, so he bough him. The next movie of his also involved horses, and he bought his horse in that one, too Knows how to survive in the wild. I'm not kidding Hand-stitched a few things in his costume for an authentic "l live away from civilization" Ranger feel. Also told the weapons department to make him a small bow because "Aragorn lives in the wild, he needs a hunting bow, or he'll starve to death- literally nobody else had thought about that Also requested a small stone to sharpen his sword. Suggested that Aragorn would take Boromir's arm guards after his death. Speaking of hand-stitching, once he was touring Japan with a reporter for an article. Walked into a store, took a tshirt, bought it, cut off the print and hand-stitched it into the hat he was wearing. The reporter was going "?????????" the entire time o Peter Jackson literally sometimes called him Aragorn by accident mybrainrots Reblogging to add that Viggo wasn't their first choice. They were already into filming when they realized whoever they had cast was not the right choice. How lucky did they get that Viggo was available on no notice? spectralarchers The original actor they cast as Aragorn was Stuart Townsend, and a day before shooting began, they realized he was too young for the role When Peter Jackson called up Viggo Mortensen to ask, Viggo didn't answer at first and said he'd call the next day to give his answer. When he asked his son Henry about it, Henry told him to take the job as Henry was a big fan of the series Henry went on to cameo as an orc in the Pelenor battle earinafae I didn't think I could love this man anymore, but here I go He is Aragorn, son of Arathorn. You owe him your allegiance.

He is Aragorn, son of Arathorn. You owe him your allegiance.

Anime, Crime, and God: Oh my God. It all makes so much sense now... This is Team Rocket They are a supposedly evil crime organization founded by this guy named But what are their real motivations? To steal Pokemon, right? Wrong Thats what these guys do in the anime In the games, they don't steal Pokemon. They run a reputable casino Their boss is a respected Gym Leader. They do steal two items from The Silph Corporation: The Silph Scope and the Master Ball. Why do they need these things? This guy Mewtwo, a lab experiment gone horribly awry, is a Psychic type so he's resistant to ghosts Giovanni knew he needed the Silph Scope so he can see the ghosts and capture one to defeat Mewtwo. He also needed the Master Ball to catch Mewtwo if all else fails. The greedy Silph Co. wouldnt part with these things when he asked so he had to steal them. However that isn't the end of the story. New information has come to light The Team Rocket motto reads thusly To protecr the world from devastation To unite al peopies within our nation To denounce the ewis of truth and love To extend our reach to the stars above Hmmm. Sounds familiar? Let's look at the other villainous teams of the Pokemon world How about these guys And these guys Team Magma and/or Team Aqua, depending on your version, want to destroy the world by using two legendary Pokemon to suit their needs Magma want to cover the world with land using Groudon. Aqua want to cover the world with water using Kyogre To protect the world from devastation what about the newest team from the far away Kalos region Team Flare are a group of elitist individuals who are all about style. Their leader, Lysandre, is obsessed with beauty and will destroy the world using an ancient weapon harnessing the power of xemeas or Yveltal to preserve its beauty at all costs. The members of Team Flare look down on others who arent rich or stylish like they are To wwte aWl peoples within our nation Getting it yet? Or should we take a look at these guys Team Plasma, who also dress like medieval knights, are a PETA-esque group founded by Ghetsis and N that want to separate the bond between human and Pokemon. They believe that Pokemon shouldn't be owned by humans and will go to villainous, exploitative ends to free Pokemon from their trainers, even releasing legendary Pokemon such as Zekrom, Reshiram, or Kyurem. This team has sort of a point about the flawed nature of Pokemon training even through their hypocrisy To denounce the ewls of truth and love And finally we come to this team Team Galactic is an evil scientific organization searching for the space Pokemon Palkia and/or the time Pokemon Dialga, depending on your version, in order to recreate the universe by their own means To extend ow reach to the stars above So, Giovanni was aware of the plans of these other teams. And he made it his life's work to stop them He is the real HERO of the Pokemon franchise He is the protector of the Pokemon world and tries to prevent the use of powerful, legendary Pokemon from destroying humanity Well, he wouild have been if you hadn't defeated him. This explains why the other teams gain power in their perspective territories Instead, he is le penniless and stripped of his Gym Leader title which goes to that pompous asshole Blue Gary Oak. Good job, player! Through your actions, you nearly caused the apocalypse 5 different times! Join Funnyma.com to be a Funker nou Giovanni was a good guy

Bitch, College, and Disappointed: balleralert 3h BALLER British Law Student Demands Lifetime Supply Of KitKat @balleralert 2,721 likes balleralert British Law Student Demands Lifetime Supply Of KitKat - blogged by @avah_taylor - A #British woman is demanding a lifetime supply of KitKats from Nestle Kek balleralert Зh ALER 2,721 likes balleralert British Law Student Demands Lifetime Supply Of KitKat - blogged by @avah_taylor - A #British woman is demanding a lifetime supply of KitKats from Nestle after discovering that an an eight-pack she purchased had no wafers inside, The Metro reports. Saima Ahmad, 20, a second-year law student at Kings College in London, even cited a legal precedent from the 1930s to support her argument, according to The Metro. In her letter to Nestle, Ahmad wrote, "I feel as though I have been misled to part with my money and purchase a product that is clearly different from what has been marketed by Nestle. "The loss I have suffered is of monetary and emotional significance. " She added: "I would therefore like to request a life-long supply of KitKat so that I can act as a means of quality control – it appears you need me more than I need you. " %3D Ahmad says she is "disappointed" with the purchase and wants the CEO of Nestle to respond to her letter. She reportedly plans to take legal action if the manufacturer doesn't comply with her request.

Being Alone, Friends, and Police: ATTACKER STAINED FOR UPTO 7 DAYS IMPACT 2-3 SECONDS orocarni-mountains: particlecollisions: particlecollisions: Self defence sprays that are legal to carry and use in the United Kingdom Image 1: FarbgelImage 2: StoppaRed I’ve seen a lot of people (mostly women, for reasons which may be obvious) speaking about being worried when going out, be it alone or even with friends, both in the day and at night. I know that a lot of female friends of mine carry around a can of antiperspirant or a pot of pepper to use if they’re ever attacked. What I know a lot of people don’t realise is that there are products out there which work in a violent situation and help in catching the assailant for the best part of a week afterwards. Known as ‘criminal identifiers’, these sprays are brightly coloured dyes which can be sprayed in the face of an attacker. Unlike things such as CS or Pepper sprays, criminal identifier sprays are legal in the UK. There’s a few available on the market, with farbgel and Mace’s Stoppared being the mostly highly recommended. What these sprays do is release a sticky, brightly coloured dye. It’s difficult to wipe away and stains the skin a bright red colour. No matter how hard an attacker might try to remove it from their skin and clothing, the staining typically lasts for around a week and doesn’t even start to fade until after a few days have passed. Unlike CS and Pepper sprays (which, again, aren’t legal in the UK) criminal identifier sprays don’t cause irritation or pain to an attacker. Instead, they expand and clog up the area sprayed with a kind of sticky foam that’s difficult to wipe away. It should give you enough time to escape and report someone whose face resembles a baboon’s arse to the police. Each can of the sprays costs around £10 each, though it may be cheaper when buying multiple canisters and if you shop around. FarbGel  StoppaRed UV Personal Attack Self-Defence Spray by Mace This is an original post, but I’ve released it into the public domain. It can be shared, altered, reposted in whole or in part with no need for attribution (though obviously I would appreciate it!) cc @misandry-mermaid It should give you enough time to escape and report someone whose face resembles a baboon’s arse to the police. That’s brilliant
