i dont get why book series are made into movies and not tv shows???

one chapter= one episode

one book= one season

it just makes a lot more sense

You are the revolution.

Whenever the subject of hyenas come up, there’s always someone itching to debunk their “negative” stereotype as “mere” corpse-eaters, pointing out that they’re actually the savannah’s top predators, and even lions, they say with at least a hint of smug satisfaction, are more likely to pick at carrion, even frequently stealing the kills from poor, misunderstood hyenas.
Now, this is all certainly true, for spotted hyenas. They are the largest of the three “true” extant hyenas, and they are extremely effective hunters.
Being a hunter, however, is not a “superior” or more “honorable” way of existence. It’s just a different one. There’s nothing shameful or disgusting about being a scavenger; we’re just culturally trained to romanticize killing and naturally turned off by the idea of eating anything too rotten, since we aren’t generally adapted to handle that ourselves.
The two other hyena species (not counting the Aardwolf) are the brown hyena - Hyaena brunnea - and the striped hyena - Hyaena hyaena. Both of these smaller, shyer animals are regular carrion eaters. When they hunt, they hunt smaller animals, such as lizards and rodents, depending heavily upon stronger predators to bring down larger meals for them and well adapted to consume even the most rancid offal without getting sick.
Hyaena hyaena even has some further specialization for eating pure bone; once meat-eaters are done picking a carcass, they can still make use of the skeleton, and consume so much bone, so often, that their feces in the wild is often white and powdery.
Don’t sweep these little guys under the rug just to make hyenas out to be more “noble” hunters; we shouldn’t even have that concept in our heads. There are no “lower” and “higher” life forms in nature. It’s not “powerful” to be a killer, it’s just one of many survival options all with their own share of advantages and risks.

Okay toph’s appearance in Korra was great but

If she was roaming the world, blind, and living on her own, how does she know what colors her clothes are

How does she have the same colored clothes as we first knew her

Why isn’t she wearing a crapton of weird looking clothes

Okay I haven’t seen what this is from but let’s talk about how genius this animation is. The man in the center, beating everyone up, he’s animated really smoothly. So are the men who charge at him before he knocks them down. BUT, look at the men when they’ve been knocked down. /Their animation quality suddenly drops/. It’s no longer as smooth, and it’s a little choppier now. Still good, but not as good as the action still happening. And that’s incredible. The animator(s) knew that these knocked-out men wouldn’t be the center of focus anymore. SO, they reduced the effort of the animation for them because our eyes would still register the movement but would be focused on the movement of the “protagonist” and his still-active attackers! And that’s just amazing. To figure out efficiency using the flow of focus in animation saved them extra work. That’s so cool.

I want to know why my data provider is blocking every image and almost every website

I’ll attempt reuploading that meme later when I can actually sit at a computer and properly embed an image and not link it.

Wow that sounded really lame. Original character do not steal lame.

Btw that meme is totally my creation yes. Image is nintendo’s and Hit the Road Jack is a song by Ray Charles but besides that I made it
