This hit me like a brick

And people wonder why authors use italics and bold and shit so reader’s understand what’s going the fuck on.

And of course I just read this in my head 7 times, stressing each word differently.

Anonymous asked: would lenin be any good at basketball

friendshipandlabor:

Now, his shooting form is fucked up. I don’t know why his left arm is so low, it looks like he probably didn’t even use it to guide the ball. His right hand is releasing wayyyy lower than you want to be. He probably had no arc on his shot. His legs look completely straight and not bent, so that’s a negative too. That ball looks like it’s gonna brick off the back of the rim so, from studying this play, it looks like Lenin was not a baller.

The amazing thing about the Toy Story trilogy is the fact that they waited 10 years to conclude the story, so that a story about nostalgia made you feel nostalgic towards the original content.

Yep. Right down to Andy aging in real time.

nepece asked: What reading order would you recommend for the Discworld books, and what single book do you think should be recced to friends to hook them?

froborr:

Small Gods first, it’s the best of the books that aren’t sequels to something. That’s also the one I’d recommend to friends in an attempt to hook them.

After that it gets more complicated. Reading in publication order is fine, plenty of people became fans that way, and it has the advantage of starting pretty decent and, mostly, getting better as you go.

Or if you find a 40-book series daunting and want to break it into more manageable chunks, after Small Gods, you can read each of the following in any order:

  • The Color of Magic/The Light Fantastic (these two have to be read in that order if you choose to read them)
  • Guards, Guards
  • Reaper Man
  • Wyrd Sisters

If you liked Color of Magic/Light Fantastic best, (a) you’re objectively wrong, and (b) you should read the Wizards/Rincewind subseries in publication order.

If you liked Guards, Guards best, read the City Watch (and, when it shows up later, the Moist von Lipwig/Post Office) subseries in publication order. (Optional book on this path: The Truth. It’s a standalone, but characters from it keep showing up in the City Watch and Lipwig books published after it.)

If you liked Reaper Man, read the Death/Susan subseries in publication order. (This will require backtracking to read Mort before continuing.)

If you liked Wyrd Sisters, read the Witches (and, when it shows up later, the Wee Free Men/Tiffany Aching) subseries in publication order. (This will require backtracking to read Equal Rites before continuing.)

In this second method, when you get to the end of the subseries you picked, you can either stop, read the rest of the books in publication order, or pick another subseries and follow it.

Or, freestyle! Read in any order you want! Don’t let the man tell you what to do!
