The thing about wanting to be active in a fandom is that so many fans feel like they’re better than others. Matt smith is my favorite doctor and I love Star Trek: deep space nine more than the original series. It sucks that I feel inferior because of this, because I feel like I could be a big part if my fandoms. Idk.
Love what genre you want, watch you want and ship who you want.
Bollocks to anyone who judges you for it

“And thus it was: a fourth age of middle-earth began and the fellowship of the ring, though eternally bound by friendship and love, was ended.” - The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
“Sherlock Holmes makes you look at the world in the way you do anyway as an actor – as a rich canvas for observation.”
A perfect moment……

I sometimes end the sentence with the wrong
I understood that reference
Album: Cabin Pressure - Series 4

I must say that Sherlock Holmes Granada series is the best Sherlock Holmes series from the XIX century (Sherlock BBC is the best from XXI). There is the wonderful work from the wonderful Jeremy Brett,but there is the wonderful work from two different,but wonderful Watsons. I can’t say if I like more David Burke or Edward Hardwicke, because I like, I love both.
David vs. Edward—who can say? You’re smoldering here, though, David. Smolder on.
jesus take the wheel i am done with this fandom
The Physics of Baseball Pitches
Five ounces of cork, yarn and leather is all it takes to produce high-velocity, mind-blowing physics. The movement of a baseball through the air is due to three things: The pitcher’s arm (moving it forward), gravity (moving it down), and air resistance from the spinning seams (which causes side-to-side, sinking and “rising” motion).
Gravity will always pull a pitch down as it travels to the plate, but back and side spin create areas of high pressure on one side of the ball (“The Magnus Effect”, named for its discoverer). This creates a force that pushes the ball in the opposite direction, whether it be sideways (likea slider), down (a sinker), or causing it to sink more slowly than normal (the “rising” pitch illusion).

- A 1959 paper studying the aerodynamics of a pitched baseball (where they wind tunnel shot above came from).
- A Science Channel video all about the physics of pitching
- For the truly curious, a REALLY in-depth and technical look into the physics of moving baseballs
Some believe that current pitchers have reached the biomechanical limits for pitch velocity and movement. When you consider the sheer neuromuscular perfection seen in this jaw-dropping overlaid GIF of the Rangers’ Yu Darvish, I can see how that might appear to be the case (via Reddit):
Perhaps more than in any other sport, baseball pitchers embody the astonishing combination of precision and power in the heart of our motor neurons: Producing unbelievable force and grace, with nearly identical repetition, a couple hundred times a week.
here is a cookie for all the sane shippers who know the difference between fanon and canon
you deserve it!
