Correcting Internet DisInformation: The American Space Pen / The Russian Pencil
thank you for this.
And then from his initial investment of >$1,000,000, the Fisher Pen Co. was able to make a lot of money and grow the overall size of the U.S. economy and create lots of jobs.
So essentially a story that is supposed to be about government inefficiency turns out to be a story about how the U.S. government worked with a private company to make space travel safer while also stimulating economic growth.
The moral of the story is not that the Soviet Union was more efficient. The moral of the story is that by failing to allow private investment in innovation, the Soviet Union was doomed.
Incidentally, Paul Fisher, who invented the Fisher space pen, was a fascinating guy. He had this plan to eliminate income and property taxes with a progressive asset tax and even ran for President. And the Fisher Space Pen Co. is still a going concern, still employing people, and still generating a return on Fisher’s million-dollar investment.
That is the most fourteen year old thing I’ve ever heard.
Please watch this video it’s so important.
im laughing so hard im gonna pass out

That time Peter Parker was trained by Natasha Romanoff.
It’s a spider thing
It’s a spider thing
Don’t you love how Peter can do it with his calves but Natasha has to use her inner thighs. This whole equality thing is great.
Thighs are stronger than calves, and you can get a tighter grip, as well as have a higher chance of breaking things. Peter was intending to disarm, Natasha was ready to kill. Natasha is a trained assassin, and Peter is a student who works for a newspaper.
Given their backgrounds and experiences, it would be UNequal to have Peter using skills and disarming tactics that Natasha was trained to do so.
So yes, this whole equality thing is great.
This post is brilliant.
also peter has bALLS OK you dont want to SLAM YOUR FUCKING TESTICLES into someons fucking SKULL
Reblogging for last comment. Laughing for 3257865 years
Also in one of the marvel comics Black Widow appeared in Spider-Man. She changed her costume and was trying to change herself. She fought Peter to learn how to fight differently.
Natasha said she wanted to fight Peter because of the “spider thing”

Paris Opera Ballet School - 6th Division class
Guys who make fun of guys who do ballet must not realise how disciplined, agile, coordinated and strong you have to be to be a ballet dancer.
Guys who make fun of ballet are stupid.
my legs hurt now
The Hannibal fandom extends a cordial invitation to ALL THE FANDOMS in Tumblr to join us for dinner.
Our beloved show is currently struggling with ratings, and as you all understand, that can be quite a sticky situation to be in if you want to have a show you love renewed for another season.
So here we are, asking you people to help us help Will Graham and get the show going for many more seasons. We would be more than thrilled to have more people to share this intelligent, elegant and utterly superb show with, as well as the madness of our fandom.
Watch Hannibal Friday at 10/9c on NBC.
I think “helpushelpwillgraham” just became the tag for this
I know this is a Benedict blog, but this is important to me. This isn’t a “hey turn on our tv show to insult Bieber fans.” This is a legit plee. I understand that the show is gory and trigger-some to people. If you have recording ways on cable or dish, just hit record. It counts as a view. You can delete it right after! No need to even see it! Please, if you can, do this for us!
honestly wasn’t expecting that post to be repesctful
wait what i don’t get it
Lol it’s funny because fat people are always hungry which is why they’re fat lololol
I actually hate her
are you fucking kidding me
beginning to dislike her more and more
she is kind of rounded out herself so where does she even get the right??
but wow what a bitch
And here we have another case of Tumblr being brain dead retarded.
This fine man who had a fat joke made at his expense is Zach Galifianakis. Zach is an actor known for his comedic roles in movies such as the “Hangover” and is also known for his stand-up.
Zach has a comedy show called “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis” a show where he interviews well known celebrities and “Maintains an awkward and often antagonistic demeanor with his guests, asking them bizarre and inappropriate questions mixed with off-handed non sequiturs on a set that intentionally resembles a low-budget amateur production fit for public-access television.”
So you see Tumblr, Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t actually being a bitch. She was ACTING like a bitch for the sake of comedy which Mr. Galifianakis himself was fully aware of because he wrote the script, thus making fun of himself.
Tumblr gettin’ schooled always has a place on my blog.
none pizza with left beef
It should be a rule of Tumblr to always reblog none pizza with left beef
ive missed youNone Pizza Left Beef haunts me to this day. I’ll be sitting there, minding my own business when suddenly I’ll think of this, and laugh hysterically, no matter what.
Every time I’m awake to see 3 am I’m like, “Y’know what sounds really good right now? None pizza with left beef.”
