auroramachine asked: Mr. Chris Pratt, you are the 3rd Chris that Marvel has collected so far. Do you think there is something special in your name or it’s just Marvel has a Chris fetish?
Chris Pratt: There’s definitely something special about my name. I’m joining pretty amazing company. Both of those guys are really incredible. I haven’t had a chance to meet Hemsworth yet, but Chris Evans… when I saw him, he literally ran across the room, gave me a huge bear hug, lifted me up, and was like, “Dude, you are going to love this!” It was like my brother congratulating me for like making the team. It was pretty cool. We bro’d out. There was a lot of love there… He’s a great guy. The point is, there’s something special about my name. You want your son to be successful? Name him Chris.

Here are 15 important data points you should know, including a few rays of sunlight.
1. Women made up 26% of the computing workforce in 2013
That’s according to the National Center for Women & Information Technology’s most recent statistics. They also broke down the numbers even more:
3% of computing workforce were black women
5% were Asian women
2% were Hispanic women
2. Professional women earn 73 cents to the dollar vs. men
According to Narrow the Gapp, that’s $333 of a weekly paycheck, which adds up to $17,316 per year. The site also says that women who work in computer and mathematical occupations make 84 cents to every dollar a man earns. That’s $214 out of her weekly paycheck. Compare that to the overall national average of women earning 80 cents to every dollar a man earns.
3. In the mid-1980s, 37% of computer science majors were women; in 2012, 18%
In a study Google released last month, the company surveyed about 1,600 men and women. It showed that girls aren’t really taught what computer science actually means, and are half as likely to be encouraged to study it. The words females unassociated with computer science used to describe it were “boring,” “technology,” and “difficult.”
4. 57% of bachelor’s degrees earned by women, 12% of computer science degrees
Much of this has to do with exposure to computer science before college and during college. According to Code.org, nine out of ten schools don’t even offer computer science classes, and in 28 out of 50 states, computer science doesn’t count towards a math or science credit.
5. Google’s workforce is only 30% female
The company released this information back in May, along with its leadership stats: 79% male. And this isn’t just a Google problem — the same goes for Yahoo, who employs 37% women, Facebook, which is 31%, and LinkedIn, which employs 39%.
But, Google has since made strides to tackle the issue. It announced it will invest $50 million in programs to get girls more interested in STEM education and coding with a “Made With Code” campaign. Some of the money will go to Girls Who Code and Black Girls Code, The company is also working with Girl Scouts of America and female celebrities to spark girls’ interests in computer science.
Han Geng’s role was the leader of Chinese Special Force who helps Autobots in the war with the Decepticons when he was invited to join the Transformers 4, according to Sina Entertainment.
However, at the end, the movie could not present Chinese military as planned but the director Michael Bay did not wish to give up Han Geng so he arranged the scene for Han Geng to show up in the film.

Don’t tell me how to live me life
I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.
I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).
They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.
Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work. That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming. I love this.

Had to share.
Odin’s a dick. you see a reflection of hurt and betrayal and the aftermath of anger and apathy.
I blame everything on Odin’s terrible parenting.
The look of contempt on Odin’s face in that second picture is disgusting.
OUCH THIS HURTS A LOT
I JUST POPPED IN TO QUEUE A FEW THINGS ABOUT THE GOSPEL OF LOKI BY JOANNE HARRIS AND THIS WAS AT THE TOP OF MY DASH AND NOW I’M CRYING
(Dang, that sounded a lot like “I came out here tonight to have a good time and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.”)
Two years since the first time I saw Thor. One year since the first inkling of what TDW was going to be like destroyed my ability to can. And these damn movies STILL break my heart. There should be warning labels. Marvel should be paying for Prozac, therapy and chocolate for every single one of us.
