"you can’t be just friends with people of the gender you’re attracted to"
myth actually true. i, as a bisexual, can confirm that i have no friends.

pansexuals spend their lives in solitude, with only rocks for company

meanwhile asexuals are friends with everyone. literally every single person on the planet. i do not know how i remember so many names

Me: Mom? Dad? I'm a thespian.

Dad: The Bible says Adam and Eve, not Aaron Tveit and Idina Menzel.

What if we trained English teachers in Linguistics and taught them how language actually works instead of how a bunch of white men in Victorian England thought it should work? And then our English teachers could teach kids that their dialects are important and valid, but that it is also important to learn how to write and speak “standard English” to be able to navigate certain parts of society and be respected there. Wouldn’t that be way better than bringing them into class and saying “You’re wrong and your entire culture is wrong. Speak like this.”

I found the giraffes making love on the  TFIOS movie

I’ve been waiting for SO LONG for this post! This is the most definite Nerdfighter reference in the movie…so pleased!

Is this real? I did not notice this while we were filming. I wonder if  propsmaster Kelly did this? (She’s a nerdfighter, so it’s possible.)

I would just like to point out that the beginning and end of Spirited Away creep me out in the most delicious way possible. I’ve always been a fan of fairy tales, and not just the Grimm and Anderson stuff, almost all my life. Like the honestly faerie court stories.
Themes you see in those reflect strongly in this movie, and comparing them side by side just makes it that much more stark.
Often times you hear that if you get sucked into the fairy realm, you shouldn’t eat their food. It gives them power over you. More often than not, heroes finally escape the fairy realm after what they perceive to be a very short time (a night or a week)…

…only to find that seasons or years have passed.

‘Hey, it’s all dusty in here. Is this someone’s idea of a joke?’

CRAPPING SHIT I WHY HAVE I NEVER NOTICED THIS

This always freaked me out a little as a kid. Like the OP, I couldn’t help but wonder how long REALLY passed. I always pretended it was something like a week but… Judging by that moss, I can’t say for sure.

A week? Try much MUCH /MUCH/ longer. The plants are a good indicator but a better one is the statue. We’re seeing it from the same angle in each shot. Look in the first one before she enters, it’s not NEW but you can tell what it is.
Now look at the second frame. It’s so eroded it’s just a dull, flat stone.
That thing is solid stone, that must have taken up to, if not more than, a DECADE to wear down that much.
Not to mention that there are new trees next to the car. Just remember how long it actually takes for trees to grow real quick.
Evidence is suggesting they were in there for maybe around 20-30 years.

the entrance changed too??? instead of smooth, red wall, it’s bricked and a beige color

i guess that means her parents don’t have jobs anymore…
