Ten Million Fireflies

Anonymous asked: Hi, and also help; my roommate got a hedgehog (from the street) and D: For general info, I think it's pretty young (the spine things on its back are still soft, it's smaller than my hand) and it was really dirty when it was found (got washed) but not hurt in any way that I could see. We're going to have a flat meeting to decide what to do with it, but in the meantime, we put it in a carton box. Do you have any tips to keep it well until that time, and what's best to choose for it?

You’re in the UK? I’m afraid I don’t know very much about wild hoglet care! My advice is pretty much always the same with any wild baby, though: Call a licensed wildlife rehabber! They’ll be able to advise you on whether it’s safe to release him or if he may need some help. If there was no deceased mama in sight and no apparent injuries, he’s likely safe to release, but if you want to be sure, get in touch with a rehabber.

In the meantime, look up pictures of young hedgehogs to try and get an idea of how old he is and what food you can offer him. If he is a baby you’ll want to keep him warm, use a heating pad under his box or wrap a hot water bottle in towels. Leave the heat source on one side of his box so he can move away from it if he gets too warm. If he doesn’t look like a spiky scrotum, he is probably weaned, and you can offer him mashed-up cat or dog food. Don’t offer cow’s milk! Water would be better. Weigh him if you can - it will help give rehabbers a good idea of whether he needs care.

After some googling: Call these folks! Looks like they have volunteers you can call after hours. Here’s a helpful article in the interim, but keeping him longer than you need to will not do him any favours. Good luck!

“A dog wants to belong. A dog wants to belong to a pack, and it’ll do what it has to do in order to eat and survive and stay warm, and they don’t leave your side. They do what they do. Each dog has a job. Some, you know, have different jobs [than] others. I have a job. You know, I see myself very similar to a dog. That sounds so weird? [Laughs.] I fucking love dogs, okay? I love dogs. You know what I mean?
Since you were a kid?Yeah, since I was a kid. My son, and my dogs, and my wife, and that’s the way it is. And my work — like a dog.”  (x)

Interviewer: Tell us about your relationship with Robert Downey Jr on set.
Jude Law: Oh, I love him. I love him.
Interviewer: Yeah? You had a bit of a bromance going on there.
Jude Law: What is this new term everyone is using?
Interviewer: Bromance?
Jude Law: Oh, it’s a horrible term. What about just a romance?
Interviewer: No, it’s not the same.
Jude Law: Why not? Why?
Interviewer: Cause then you’d have to star in a romantic comedy together or something.

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

i’ve reblogged this before but this one has further breakdown of exactly why, and i love it. (also hell yes, kudos to the costume department for this; it’s wrong, but it’s so clearly DELIBERATELY wrong considering how well they nailed it during the 40s sequences).

is that scarlett’s terrible iron man two hair

did shield just have a bad year that year
