It’s like Marvel is really trying to piss people off, lol. 

Source: http://io9.com/marvels-new-captain-america-will-be-black-1606409585

calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.

Nothing makes me more pleased than Marvel making Marvel fanboys angry about genuinely good and interesting comic choices.

Um, this is fantastic. Why the hell are you complaining?

How come poor sushi pillow doesn’t get to stay with you?

sushi pillow is large and soft and round, and fit perfectly into the empty space in a box as padding. I was like “ok whatever I’ll deal” but now the movers have come and gone, the house is empty and I wish I had something huggable. sushi pillow is very huggable.

Sushi pillow sounds quite huggable. While sushi pillow is off serving the noble duty of protecting your belongings, maybe my Nessie can bring some comfort.

I could go into a detailed technical explanation about direction and ting and things like that, but I feel like that would end up confusing you more, so what I’m going to do is give you the simplest way to identify cartwheels v. roundoffs, focusing on visuals. 
To be very, very simplistic, a cartwheel lands one foot at a time, one foot in front of the other. Basically, the gymnast starts in a lunge position and finishes in that exact same lunge position, only facing the other way: 

A roundoff, on the other hand, begins much like a cartwheel, but finishes with the gymnast snapping the legs together before landing and landing with both legs together at the same time. So instead of landing one foot at a time with one foot behind the other (cartwheel) the gymnast lands with both feet at the same time and aligned right next to one another: 


Does that help?
P.S. Sorry I had to answer your question by screenshotting your question and then uploading via photo post, but it was the only way I could fit two gifs into the answer field. For some reason Tumblr was being a dick and not letting be use a second gif when I tried to just answer using the inbox. Hope this suffices.

Normally I’m proud to be British with the leotards they have but this one…I don’t know what to think

It is very interesting! I think I would like it better if the top left (her left) shoulder had the same color scheme as the lower left.


If her right arm was entirely light pink rather than continuing the stripes, I would love it.

I absolutely cannot stand these people who shove bullshit in my family’s face saying if Mikey eats organic or if Mikey turns vegan he will be” cured”. Take your fucking nonsense somewhere else and maybe, I don’t know, sign up to be a bone marrow donor?? YES WHEN YOURE A VEGAN YOU GET BRAND NEW BONE MARROW FREE OF CHARGE!!! Fuck outta here.

My cousin had to deal with shit like that when her son was diagnosed with leukemia. She was even told stuff like “You’re killing him by giving him chemo, you should feed him this magic cancer curing berry instead.” and “It’s your fault he got cancer. You should have breast fed him and fed him homemade, organic baby food” (which she did by the way, not that it matters) and “Its because you let him eat hotdogs.”
