i’m in complete and utter agony about captain america 2. DONT TALK TO ME UNTIL I READ 100,000 WORDS OF FANFIC ABOUT BUCKY AND STEVE AND LOSS AND THE FUTURE AND MEET-CUTES AND CRAWLING OUT OF A PIT OF LONELINESS ONE FINGERTIP AT A TIME
the thing that i’ve come to lovehate about ‘you are made of stardust’ elemental Tumblr Poetry is that there’s a very clear formula to them, which is: 1. pick an element or molecule that is found in your body 2. describe another non-physiological process that involves this element or molecule — the grander the BETTER
and it’s so simple and easy and doesn’t even make any sense but sometimes when you apply the formula you are like, “hey i’m still… kind of… inspired” because your brain is able to give meaning to these tenuous connections
'your body is 18% carbon. the same element that buckles under pressure and emerges as diamonds. the same element that has adorned the crowns of kings and queens, the same element that can cut through steel'
'your body is 9.5% hydrogen by mass. the same element that powered the first airships when we took to the sky. the same volatile element that adorned the clouds with minor supernovas as the first airships fell, as icarus once did'

I was at a party and two Christian friends started talking about the project of 'bringing Church to non-Church peoples', and they mentioned that it's easier to do in developing countries because the people there don't have as much access to technology or resources. Because making people convert to your religion in exchange for giving them church-funded and church-designed medical and eductional aid is not fucking disgusting at all.
