My brother saved this document and everytime he gets angry at our neighbours for being loud he prints it to their wireless printer and you can hear the wife shout “Why the fuck would you print this AGAIN?!” to her son.
This is the best.
Every time I see a dog dressed up in a silly outfit I imagine that this is what they’re thinking.
duuuuuuude, this is FASCINATING to me. like, i’m not going to start saying any of these the right way or anything — you’ll pry ‘beam me up scotty’ from my cold dead hands, for one thing — but like. here is a whole list of times that scores of people saw a movie, identified with that movie, identified more specifically with a given part of that movie, and then all quoted it incorrectly to the point that it became more correct than the actual lines. HUMANS, MAN.
I’m pretty sure for the Star Trek ones were quoted wrong so much that they actually put them in later. (I think in one of the movies)
1. HORMONES MAKE TEAR PRODUCTION HARDER FOR MEN, EASIER FOR WOMEN.
Think men don’t cry as often because they’re “strong” or lack emotion? Well, you can’t cry if you don’t have the tears to do it. Before puberty, girls and boys cry in equal amounts, and for pretty much the exact same reasons. When puberty hits and we get our hormones on (testosterone for the fellas and prolactin for ladies), our ability to PRODUCE tears changes. Testosterone may inhibit tear production in men, while prolactin actually makes crying easier (and encourages it) for women. Though the experience of feeling emotion may be exactly the same between the sexes, men’s bodies are simply less likely to produce tears as a response (while women’s bodies may produce them automatically, especially in response to stress). This hormonal difference also means that in situations where men & women BEGIN to cry, men may be able to shut down the reflex more easily, whereas women may have a much harder time holding them back. Women with especially high prolactin levels (preggers, post-preggers, hormonally imbalance like me, etc) may find they can cry almost indefinitely when emotions run high. I call it “leaking”, lol. In general, women are QUEENS of the “good, long cry”. Women may produce more tears than normal when depressed/anxious because of higher levels of tear producing stress hormone.
For men trying to understand a female cry response, it’s kind of like a boner for your eyeballs: sometimes it happens for no reason and you can’t shut it off right away EVEN when you desperately wanna. That’s not to say women are emotionally irrational or somehow unable to function when crying: we just have a physical response to emotion that makes us more likely to express it with tears. Tears (or lack of tears) are also NOT an indicator of depth of feeling or lack of emotion: a man can be devastated and simply be unable to produce tears (or will produce just a few). A woman can be mildly upset or stressed and cry whole heartedly.
Huh. That explains some things.
Reblogging to add more sources: Is it true that women’s tears contain an enzyme that can be released only by crying, meaning they are quicker to cry under emotional stress?

Do women cry more than men? (via maichan808)
A tiger mother lost her cubs from premature labour. Shortly after she became depressed and her health declined, and she was diagnosed with depression. So they wrapped up piglets in tiger cloth, and gave them to the tiger. The tiger now loves these pigs and treats them like her babies.
I HAD TO… i felt forced.
Oh god that is so beautiful
i’m unable to cope
» Odin dies when Thor and Loki are at a very young age and they grow up with Frigga as their only parent. Like Odin, she teaches her boys that they are born to be kings, born to be equals, born to rule. Believing that they are at their best when they are together, she puts both Thor and Loki on the throne of Asgard.
ugh Frigga would’ve been so good as a single mother
