When people compare the greatness that is The Simpsons to other animated shows like Family Guy it makes me want to set myself on fire

I went on a date last year and jokingly said “Don’t ask me I’m just a girl” and giggled at a 35 year old man thinking he’d get the reference and instead he said “that’s what I like to hear.”

# about me  # no i'm not actually happy about the destruction of the temples of the acropolis 

haru-mejiro:

A video-tour of ancient Athens during the Archaic period. The city and its monuments are depicted as they were in 480 BCE, just before everything was burned to the ground by the Persians.

The Agora was rearranged to accommodate the public buildings of the new-born Democracy.

On the Acropolis stood the archaic Temple of Athena and by its side, the under construction new temple which was destroyed by the Persians, only to be replaced 40 years later by the Parthenon.

Adorable earnest guy reading a Deadpool comic on the 5 train

Dude in a fancy suit and a triple-digit haircut gets on at Wall Street and discreetly reads the entire thing over the Deadpool guy’s shoulder

at least once I saw him want to say “wait don’t turn the page I’m not done yet” and then remember he couldn’t

When the Deadpool guy got off the train the Wall Street guy smiled and waved at him and the Deadpool guy gave him a look like ‘wtf’

I am the only person who fully observed the tragedy

What kind of gosh darn rom-com world do you live in???
