Hugging shorter people and resting your head on theirs
Hugging taller people and having your head against their chest
Hugging people your height and pressing your face against their shoulder
Hugging people and getting picked up by them
Not having people to hug
Giving a hug that comes off as weird
This post describes me in every way

I tried not to reblog this but I couldn’t, not after you just made a Les Miserables, Rise of the Guardians and Wolverine reference.
As some of you might already have guessed, I’m a fan of Japanese girl idols. One of the many, many idol groups in existence today in Japan is NMB48, a Osaka-based spin-off group of the (in)famous AKB48. NMB has a weekly show that’s surprisingly entertaining as well as educational called NMB to Manabu-kun, in which the members of NMB and a few comedians listen to guest lectures by experts in various fields.
Back on May 15th, the theme of the episode was pataphysics/the science of sci-fi. One of the topics of the lecture held by university professor Yanagita Rikao was the age-old question of "WHY ARE MAGICAL GIRLS NEVER ATTACKED WHILE TRANSFORMING???"
This was his answer, based on the magical girl series Futari wa Pretty Cure.
Question: The transformation scenes in Pretty Cure are very long, so why don’t the bad guys attack the girls in the meantime?
"Even when I was little, I was thinking ‘Hey! Attack them now!’"
"I found this odd as well, so I watched the transformation scene many times. And what I noticed is, when the Pretty Cures yell ‘Dual Aurora Wave!’ and transform, a rainbow-colored column of light shoots up from the ground, going BOOM!"
"And then the Pretty Cures levitate, and go up into the air. Based on this, I believe the protagonists of Pretty Cure are being held up in the air by the power of light.”
"When we think of light, we usually think it heats up things or lights up things. But in reality, light has the power to hold up things as well."
"When the sun is beating down on us in the summer, the human body is being pressed downwards by the sun beams with a force of 2/100,000g.”
"But this is only about a one-hundred of the weight of a mosquito, so no matter how hot it is, we don’t feel that sunlight is heavy."
"So that means the light holding them up must be extremely strong. If we assume that the two Pretty Cures each weigh about 45kg and do some calculations…”
"It means the light during the transformation must have the energy of 2,100,000,000kW per 1m2.”
"While the entirety of power that Japan is capable of generating is only 100,000,000kW.”
"So they’re using 21 TIMES the amount of energy the whole of Japan can generate.”
"So what would happen if a bad guy jumped in to try to sabotage their transformation?"
"He would EVAPORATE INSTANTLY.”
“DEATH AWAITS ANYONE WHO DARES TO DISRUPT A PRETTY CURE TRANSFORMATION.”
"So this means the best thing to do would be to transform close to any bad guys."
"Yes. They are the strongest while they transform, and are practically invincible.”
That was fucking incredible.

Tumblr: spreading the world apart, one group at a time.
this seriously pisses me off. like i get people who find out I’m Venezuelan and they go, oh? but you look white! So then I’m not even Venezuelan anymore, I’m a “white passing person of colour”
stop erasing my culture and ethnicity like this stop just stop
I am Spanish.
You know, from Spain.
Yeah. Again, you know… the place where apparently americans think we dress like this all day long:
I am not even shitting you; people are legitimately surprised Spanish people apparently don’t all walk around dressed like this. As a random fact, this is only ONE type of dress spanish folk use; it hails from Sevilla. As such, people in other places in spain don’t USE it. AT ALL. This dress is used for a very important feast in Sevilla, in April.
Let me show you what peeps in Valencia wear:
The girls, anyhow. The male versions of both dresses above are awesome too, but I won’t get into that.
What my VERY long winded explanation is getting at here is that cultural appreciation is a fine line and I’m starting to get really frustrated by what I see on Tumblr a lot, under the guise of being ‘considerate’ to other cultures.
Guys; news flash. You can be a white American and still come over over to Spain (OR NOT) and see the Feria of Sevilla and be absolutely enamored with it! You could come to Valencia and see our awesome Fallas (look that shit up, really, do it - you’ll love it, I bet - I’ve brought friends from abroad and they’ve loved it) and admire them!
There is, in my eyes, nothing wrong with loving another culture, or learning from it! It is much, much worse in my eyes to NOT understand it. What harm is there in someone trying to join in?
Why is it ‘wrong’ for me to learn English, just because it is nor my native language? (Or does it only go the other way around?) I would feel thrilled if the next time I go over to the USA I talk to someone that’s native there and they were to suddenly go;
"Hey! I happen to speak Spanish!"
Allowing us to continue the previous conversation in Spanish because holy shit, look at that! That’s another thing we have in common, awesome!
There is a difference between taking a bit of a culture because you like it and want to experience it…. and taking it and MOCKING IT.
IMO, if others can’t expand beyond their own culture… if they’re not allowed to experience and learn beyond that, you’re more or less promoting a whole sort of ‘you there, me here, see this line? No crossie’. The world shouldn’t work like that…
It makes me sad.
Things I will forever be upset about:
1. I don’t know what my Patronus is
2. I don’t know what Amortentia smells like to me
3. I don’t know what I’d see in the Mirror of Erised
4. I don’t know what my Boggart would be
5. I don’t know for sure what house I would be in
6. I don’t know the specifications of my wand are.
7. I’M NOT A WITCH
