“We were a two career family. I was a nuclear engineer. I designed shields for the fuel reactors on the first nuclear submarines. He was a carpenter.”
You don’t like what the show is about? Stop watching!
I love the smell of butthurt deathsteliers:)
#Disastiel shippers#are the stupidest humans on the planet#like you just noticed the show is about Sam and Dean being codependent?#it’s been like that since season one#oh right whoops you didn’t watch season one#you atarted at season 4 and still have the audacity to call yourself a fan#don’t skip the three building block seasons of a show and then act like you know anythign about it#supernatural#is and always has been!
Cherie on point, as usual. No hate to people who respect the show; I respect that in turn.

Love for the dead is pointless.
We only fight to keep more from dying, that is all.
Can I be Sally?? PLEASE OMFG
the deadmau5 photo tho ha ha ha
Just teared up looking at all of these and wishing I was back there!
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
I know we all love Edna because she’s super fierce and determined and an awesome role model and shit but
do you ever think that she feels intensely guilty over this, having made this suit that lead to the death of this amazing young girl
Maybe there’s a reason she never looks back.
Repeated for emphasis:
Maybe there’s a reason she never looks back.
Edna at the funeral, veiled from head to toe, slowly ripping pages out of her pocket sketchbook and mouthing the words “no capes”
I really need to watch this movie again
there are no words
Edna’s relationships with Bob and Helen show that she does in fact care about the people she works for, like how she commented on Bob losing weight and (begrudgingly) listened to Helen cry. She was personally involved with all of the supers that she designed for, whether she wanted to be or not. They were her models, and she was the one that made them the suits that would help them withstand anything.
How many times do you think Edna had to stop that girl from crying? How many times did she need to convince the young super that she looked great in her suit? How many times do you think Edna called Stratogale “darling” before she died?
Edna was the one who made the capes that led to the death of her customers, associates, and friends.
Think about that for a little bit.
The first bionic hand that allows an amputee to feel what they are touching will be transplanted later this year in a pioneering operation that could introduce a new generation of artificial limbs with sensory perception.
The patient is an unnamed man in his 20s living in Rome who lost the lower part of his arm following an accident, said Silvestro Micera of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
The wiring of his new bionic hand will be connected to the patient’s nervous system with the hope that the man will be able to control the movements of the hand as well as receiving touch signals from the hand’s skin sensors.
Dr Micera said that the hand will be attached directly to the patient’s nervous system via electrodes clipped onto two of the arm’s main nerves, the median and the ulnar nerves.
This should allow the man to control the hand by his thoughts, as well as receiving sensory signals to his brain from the hand’s sensors. It will effectively provide a fast, bidirectional flow of information between the man’s nervous system and the prosthetic hand.
“This is real progress, real hope for amputees. It will be the first prosthetic that will provide real-time sensory feedback for grasping,” Dr Micera said.
“It is clear that the more sensory feeling an amputee has, the more likely you will get full acceptance of that limb,” he told the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Boston.
“We could be on the cusp of providing new and more effective clinical solutions to amputees in the next year,” he said.
DO YOU PEOPLE EVEN REALIZE HOW AWESOME THIS IS???
TO DO THIS MEANS WE CAN FINALLY STITCH AXONS (LONG PART OF NEURON OR NERVE CELL THAT TRANSPORTS SIGNALS FROM JUNCTIONS BACK TO THE BRAIN) BACK TOGETHER
DO YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW IMPOSSIBLE THAT WAS? TO ALIGN THE DAMAGED AXONS BACK TOGETHER WAS IMPOSSIBLE
WITH THIS BREAK THROUGH YOU COULD EVENTUALLY WORK UP TO GIVING THE ABILITY TO WALK AND MOVE AGAIN TO THOSE WHO CUT THEIR SPINAL CORD IN AN ACCIDENT THIS IS BEAUTIFUL
THIS. IS. AMAZING.
fUck these are good
