When a librarian carrying a check-shelves hold slip passes the librarian carrying a book retrieved for fulfilling an ILL, and neither notices that it is the same title until after fifteen minutes of confusion about “place hold on available,” “change item status,” “in-transit,” “missing,” “change item status,” “check out,” and "wait — is the system checking out materials which were just marked missing?!?"
one of my favorite past times is watching whose line cast lose their shit in the background
Whose Line Is It Anyway? - 05x34 (show 604) - the one with Colin’s loud shirt
Yesterday I said that bookmobiles are an instant reblog. Today, I learned that rule also applies to book donkeys.
When I saw the sign, I was like “that can’t be literally what he’s doing” BUT IT IS AND IT’S GREAT
i talk a lot of shit for someone who can’t choose rude dialogue options in games because i’m scared of hurting a characters feelings

I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.
She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)
And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.
This is a REALLY good character analysis of Natasha.
