jäger (german): hunter
This was the point in the movie where I was sold. Completely and 100% in love. I remember grabbing Trey’s arm and pointing at the screen and speaking very very frantically. “Honey, honey look! Look the suits and the gears are worn, there are chips in the paint! The details!”
So often today movies, especially ones with sizable amounts of cgi, are all about the gloss and the shiny. They don’t take care in the little details. Like how these two Rangers have been piloting Gipsy together for a while, and the movie shows that, it doesn’t just tell you that. And not just in how well Yancy and Raleigh fight together, but in the little details, like chips in fucking paint.
Reblogging for above commentary.
This was also my moment, too. I slid down in my seat til I was almost falling out of it and clutched Mezi’s knee so hard I might have scraped her skin THROUGH her jeans. For me (since I’d been forewarned to look out for the realism of the weathering on the kit) it was the many stages of getting strapped in and suited up - quite literally the process of attaching themselves, body and mind, into the machine, in ways that are not easy to quickly pop out of, in ways that translate not only the power but the pain of the machine into their own bodies.
The movie doesn’t just claim that the pilots fuse with not only each other but also the body of their jaeger; it shows us. The effort and pain and skill and strength required for this job is evident in every motion, and it wouldn’t have, couldn’t have been, if it was CGI with actors on greenscreens. The physical effort is apparent in every touch.

This by far the most fucked up post on the internet.
Notice something in common in these photos?
It’s not what you think
I gave it away in the third pic
That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…
This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.
This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.
The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.
A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.
I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.
That is not a typo.

In a study of children aged 2-5, parents interrupted their daughters more than their sons, and fathers were more likely to talk simultaneously with their children than mothers were. Jennifer Coates says: “It seems that fathers try to control conversation more than mothers… and both parents try to control conversation more with daughters than with sons. The implicit message to girls is that they are more interruptible and that their right to speak is less than that of boys.”
Girls and boys’ differing understanding of when to talk, when to be quiet, what is polite and so on, has a visible impact on the dynamics of the classroom. Just as men dominate the floor in business meetings, academic conferences and so on, so little boys dominate in the classroom - and little girls let them.
Working with children for over a decade, this is something I’ve noticed, actually. And for the majority, the little girls in my class and my co-worker’s classes all sit quietly and listen MUCH better than the boys do. Most boys don’t care to be quiet and sit still. And I don’t think this is an attribute of boys being “rowdier” or more “hyper” - believe me, the girls are JUST as off the wall as the boys if you aren’t telling them not to. It must be a learned behavior, and it must be enforced more with the girls so they know they can’t get away with it. You have no idea how many times in my career I’ve heard “boys will be boys,” and smiling parents as they tell me with a laugh, sorry, their son is “wild” and a “handful” as they introduce him to the class.
And that’s how you do sexism. That’s how it’s so effectively trained into every single citizen and indoctrinated as normal and right.
