tsunderepup: randomslasher: pastel-selkie: lesbianshepard: stupid leftists and their belief in *checks notes* the intrinsic value of human life Reblog if you would burn down the statue of liberty to save a life Here’s the thing, though. If you asked a conservative “Would you let the statue of liberty burn to save one life?” they’d probably scoff and say no, it’s a national landmark, a treasure, a piece of too much historical importance to let it be destroyed for the sake of one measly life.  But if you asked, “Would you let the statue of liberty burn in order to save your child? your spouse? someone you loved a great deal?” the tune abruptly changes. At the very least, there’s a hesitation. Even if they deny it, I’m willing to bet that gun to their head, the answer would be “yes.”   The basic problem here is that people have a hard time seeing outside their own sphere of influence, and empathizing beyond the few people who are right in front of them. You’ve got your immediate family, whom you love; your friends, your acquaintances, maybe to a certain degree the people who share a status with you (your religion, your race, etc.)–but beyond that? People aren’t real. They’re theoretical.  But a national monument? That’s real. It stands for something. The value of a non-realized anonymous life that exists completely outside your sphere of influence is clearly worth less than something that represents freedom and prosperity to a whole nation, right? People who think like this lack the compassion to realize that everyone is in someone’s immediate sphere of influence–that everyone is someone’s lover, or brother, or parent. Everyone means the world to someone. And it’s the absolute height of selfishness to assume that their lives don’t have value just because they don’t mean the world to you.  P.S. I would let the statue of liberty burn to save a pigeon.  : anarchy404x 1d You must understand the weird logic of the left. To them life is priceless and should always be prioritised over property. They would literally let the statue of Liberty burn to save one person. Through inaction let one person starve? You monster, you literally murdered them.

monstatron: thefingerfuckingfemalefury: tharook: thefingerfuckingfemalefury: vo-kopen: filmsfoodandfandom: oni-queen: Theory as to what Kong was doing during the events of King of the Monsters. I mean, to be fair, Kong was stuck on an island in the middle of the South Pacific. What was he gonna do? Doggie paddle 5000 miles to America? He could build a boat. What can I say, I like the Kong Skull Island theory that his “power” was his intelligence. I want him to fight Godzilla while wearing armor made from battleship plating. I am now just picturing Kong carefully attempting to construct some kind of viking style longship to carry him across the ocean so he can fistfight with Godzilla Kong shows up a film late with a Starbucks (a shop, not a single coffee). SOMEONE DRAW THIS :D here you go. and if i may add my two cents; the hollow earth is confirmed to be used as a passage by titans to quickly move to anywhere on the planet, so kong easily could have used a hollow earth tunnel to travel off skull island, but he didn’t.  so it’s safe to assume kong didn’t give any  shits about ghidorah’s call.  : Ghidorah Kang SPRINGFIELD ELEMENTAR SCHOOL Kong hears ya.

theinfiknight: theabyssalmeme: melancholy-starlight: rynnay: thelegendofben: detectiveshipwreck: What would even happen to you? somebody mod this into portal and let the physics engine work it out. The implications are terrifying. Good news! I have the solution. PORTALS CAN’T MOVE. If you place a portal on a surface, and then that surface moves, the portal immediately closes. A good example of this is one of the last test chambers in the first game. There is a surface that, upon a button press, is tilted upwards at an angle. If you place a portal there and THEN hit the button, the portal disappears. The ONE, SINGULAR EXCEPTION to this has been in Portal 2 when you are deactivating the neurotoxin generator. But it is fair to assume in all other cases a portal would not be allowed to move. I will grant you that it may just be the limitations of it Being a Video Game. But there is no more concrete evidence to suggest they could move in reality than there is to suggest they couldn’t. However, just for funsies, someone did in fact pull this off in-game to let he physics engine figure it out and the results are… Well, it’s something.
