Are you fucking kidding me? Did we all just wake up in 1938?

Really seriously flabbergasted and concerned about this.

Oh, God, it’s starting all over again…

As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.

Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.

Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.

In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.

Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.

These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.

While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.

This is amazing!

Do you understand how scary this picture is



god forbid a real person do real person things he wasnt just a robot who killed people jesus fucking christ



uh yeah its not like he killed and tortured six million jews or anything



Hold on just a tick. Listen, I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just…..well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was six million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE. 
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl.
This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl. 
Yeah. It’s fucking scary. It really is. Do you know why?
It’s because you’re seeing that he wasn’t, in fact, a monster. You’re seeing in this picture that he was a man. He was a man, and that’s really the saddest part of it all.






As a History major who specializes in the history of early modern Europe, I’ve studied a lot of dictators in detail, not just Hitler. The number one mistake anyone could ever make in history is making the assumption that only inhuman monsters are capable of doing terrible things. Stop dehumanizing Hitler just so you can reassure yourself that “normal” humans aren’t capable of doing bad things. Hitler liked children and dogs, he was a vegetarian and he cried like a little boy when his mother died. I’m not saying he was a good, innocent person, but when you stop attributing human characteristics to historical figures like Hitler, it’s how you overlook people just like him in real life, and it’s how people like him end up back in power.


That last statement.

(Quick note, not ignoring anything said above and all, but he actually killed 12 million people. Half of that figure was composed of Jewish people, and the other half was everyone else he didn’t like, i.e. gays, the disabled, blacks, Catholics, political prisoners, Romani, Slavs, etc.)

Just when I thought they couldn’t f*** up Samus’ design any more (I despise zero suit in the first place), they introduce this. Strap-on high heels. Way to continue to ruin my favorite girl game character, Nintendo.

It hurts me so bad.

I love (and by love I mean feel indescribable anguish) how we went from a female character who surprised the gaming world by being mistaken for a dude, to…whatever the hell this is.

HEELS? REALLY?!

Good job guys, you screwed it up royally

You all sound like Zero Suit Samus is something completely new that they just threw out there with no canon in the series. The Zero Suit’s been around since Metroid Zero Mission for the GBA, which came out in 2004, and her wearing high heals isn’t new either, if anyone remembers Other M.

Oh I know it’s not a new thing, this has bothered me for a while now. I always found the suit to be rather a silly choice, especially considering Samus’ background and the whole point for her initial design. It seems like a strange decision going “let’s take this character who is known for being a female character who broke gender roles and didn’t need to wear anything feminine or sexy…and stick her in a skin-tight outfit and slap some heels on her.”

I can say at least the heels now have some function, but when I think “killer heels” I don’t think Samus…I think Bayonetta.

Remember when this was Samus? These two characters don’t even look like they’re from the same game. Like said above: these new designs completely defeat the idea behind her original design.

If they wanted to make some hot babe eye candy in a skin-tight blue suit, they should’ve just made a completely different series.

A character design should reflect what that character is all about. Samus is an orphan raised as a warrior by the chozo. If you were to point to the design that matches this description, you’d point to the badass character in the armor, not the one above.

Also Other M is fucking awful.

You could make the argument that the Zero Suit is just the suit she wears when she’s in armor, like they do in NGE, but the women in NGE don’t wear hooker heels into combat situations.

Strong women are great, but logging onto tumblr and complaining about other peoples ‘privileges’, blaming men for everything wrong in your life and calling things such as someone holding a door open for you ‘oppression’, does not make you a strong woman.
