Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Jack Sparrow just got way cooler.
I love that Tumblr picks up the details that most people would overlook, and then turns them into gifs. Character development… it matters.
The fact that Robert Downey Jr. is threatening to leave Marvel unless Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett basically all his Marvel buddies get a pay raise really shows you that he is a great man, a human being, and never thinks of himself above others even if he jokes that he is above everyone else all the time.
Not only that, but he’s also trying to negotiate having his pay LOWERED so that they could get more.
7 Deadly Sins Wine Glasses by Kacper Hamilton
Available for purchase at gnr8. Celebrate the sinful life with sweet, glorious libations. Hey, I dont recall getting shit-faced ever being a sin.
Greed, I need that greed glass
no but these are brilliant because their shapes are so well though-out that it’s mind-blowingly fantastic!
wrath, no matter how you try to take a drink, it’s going to hurt you; gluttony, the shape is so dragged out at the bottom, you’re going to have to fight to drink every drop; pride is tall and thin and too cumbersome to deal with, in addition to not having a bottom so you’ll have to carry it with you always; lust, because you’ll only ever get a few drops, just enough to keep you sitting there; sloth looks explanatory enough, and it’s still a brilliant shape; envy will always spill out and stain you if you try to take a drink; and greed is one of the best because you can drink all you want, but you can see what you can’t get to and you’ll be striving to get it, even though you don’t need it
Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
Environment Artist Christian Davis of Junction Point studios (Epic Mickey) took it upon himself to create an example of what Pokémon Snap would look like if made with today’s technology.

“Being a woman is not a means to humiliate and punish anyone”
After a policeman in the Iranian Kurdish town of Marivan paraded an accused criminal in traditional Kurdish women’s clothes in the streets in order to humiliate him, women marched in the city condemning the use of women’s attire as a kind of humiliation.
In support, an internet campaign of Kurdish and other Iranian men has sprung up showing men wearing Kurdish women’s clothes and messages and support. For example, this message says,”wearing Kurdish women’s clothes is not only not an insult, it is instead a great honor for us,” and goes on to describe how women stand side by side with men in every part of society and during wartime.
