Koalas having an argument.

if you have never heard a koala noise before, here is yr chance

they sound like fuzzy bike horns

I laughed so hard I literally started crying

i wasn’t ready

You know, the sitting-up one has a pretty good tenor horn.  A couple of years’ lessons and he might amount to something.  Or she.  Or whatever.  That’s still a horn with possibilities.

how are koalas real

Someone needs to write a fic of a battalion of superheroes randomly showing up at Sam’s doorstep because they have nowhere else to go.

"Hey Sam… so Pepper threw me out of my house and Rhodey’s on vacation in Mexico."

"Steve has spoken much of you Son of Wil. Do you wish to do battle against my adopted brother?"

"So… show an archer these wings I’ve heard so much about."

"HULK. HUNGRY."

And Sam cursing Steve and Natasha in the depths of his soul because they started the trend and then told all their friends about it.

The absence of women in history is man made.

How petty

just look at babe ruth’s face tho
so confused
so lost
i love it

pure hater shit

Jackie Mitchell…a bad ass lady I had never heard of. 

From her Wikipedia page: “Seventeen-year-old Jackie Mitchell, brought in to pitch in the first inning after the starting pitcher had given up a double and a single, faced Babe Ruth. After taking a ball, Ruth swung and missed at the next two pitches. Mitchell’s fourth pitch to Ruth was a called third strike. Babe Ruth glared and verbally abused the umpire before being led away by his teammates to sit to wait for another batting turn. The crowd roared for Jackie. Babe Ruth was quoted in a Chattanooga newspaper as having said:

"I don’t know what’s going to happen if they begin to let women in baseball. Of course, they will never make good. Why? Because they are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day."

Next up was the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig, who swung through the first three pitches to strike out. Jackie Mitchell became famous for striking out two of the greatest baseball players in history.
A few days after Mitchell struck out Ruth and Gehrig, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided her contract and declared women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous.”[5][10] Mitchell continued to play professionally,barnstorming with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their very long hair and long beards.[11] While travelling with the House of David team, she would sometimes wear a fake beard for publicity.”
TL;DR: teenage girl strikes out two of the greatest baseball players ever, teenage girl gets her contract voided, teenage girl plays baseball wearing fake beard

So is it that women are too delicate to play ball with men or that men’s egos are too delicate to deal with being bested by women from time to time?

WHY HAVE I NEVER SEEN THIS ON TUMBLR - I FEEL LIKE THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED.

I FEEL LIKE I HAVE BEEN DENIED A GREAT HONOR.

.let me tell you kids a story right now. 

this GUY WENT FISHING AT THIS LAKE-OCEAN DROPOFF NEAR TAMPA. AND MY FATHER HAPPENED TO BE FISHING NEAR THE SAME PLACE. SO THIS KID HAD A TANGLED LINE AND MY DAD HELPED THE LITTLE SHIT, AND AFTERWARDS MY DAD GOES LIKE “YOU LOOK LIKE ONE OF THOSE HARRY POTTER KIDS, MY DAUGHTER HAS THIS BLONDE KID O N HER LAPTOP BACKGROUND, AND YOU LOOK LIKE HIM. AND THEN MY DAD SAYS THAT THIS LITTLE SHIT RIGHT HERE JUST CHUCKLES AND ASKS MY DAD TO CALL ME ON THE PH ONE. SO THATS HOW I TALKED TO TOM FELTON FOR ABOUT A MINUTE AND HE ASKED ME ABOUT SCHOOL AND HOW I  LIKED THE BOOKS AND THE MOVIES AND HOW I DIED FOR LIKE A LIFETIME.

AND THEN MY DAD ASKED HIM “SO YOU ARE THE HARRY POTTER KID”. AND HES LIKE “YEAH” AND THATS HOW I DIED AND MY FATHER HAD A 10 MIN CONVERSATION WITH THIS FUCKER ABOUT FISHING.
