different ideas of romance~
“john i’m trying to be romantic, i thought you would appreciate that”
“you would find painful and debilitating injuries romantic, wouldn’t you”
“i don’t understand the point”
“it’s supposed to be romantic”
“but we’d get to the bedroom much faster if we both walked”acid-zombie: can you draw Sherlock with a broken leg and John helping him up the stairs?
it’s been a year and a half and i still get hit with the sudden and painful realization that sherlock threw himself off a building to save john’s life after telling john he was a fake to save his life even though his pride in his work was practically all he had
CAN YOU NOT
I think the real question is why should a girl shave, preen and diet herself into oblivion for a guy in sweatpants and a t shirt who hasn’t trimmed his pubes in 3 years
Please stop reblogging this I’m scared a social justice warrior is gonna find it and realise I’m a boy
In the scene in The Incredibles where Helen (Elastagirl) is flying the plane, her use of radio protocol is exceptionally accurate for a movie. The terminology used hints that she has had military flight training. In the director’s commentary Brad Bird says that actress Holly Hunter insisted on learning both the lingo and its meaning.
- “VFR on top” means she is flying in the regime of Visual Flight Rules ‘on top’ of a cloud cover.
- She requests “vectors to the initial”, or directions on how to get to the initial landing approach.
- “Angels 10” is her altitude call, ten thousand feet. This is a military term. Civilian flights use the term “flight level”.
- “Track east” is her direction of travel.
- “Buddy spike(d)” is a US military brevity code meaning “friendly anti-aircraft radar has locked on to me, (please don’t shoot)”.
- “Transmitting in the Blind Guard” is a call on the emergency frequency where 2-way communication has not been established.
- “Abort” is also a military brevity code, a directive meaning “stop the action/mission/attack”.
god i love when actors/ voice actors are intent on using correct lingo for things like this
its so easy to BS this sort of thing and sometimes it might work but it’s vastly more impressive when they actually use correct terminology
She also uses the handle “India Golf Niner-Niner” or, in the NATO Phonetic Alphabet, IG99.
The Iron Giant (1999), also directed by Brad Bird.
I’m pretty sure there was a part that never got into the movie that showed she had a flying buddy and it explained a bit more as to how she knew that stuff? I remember that she called him but they didn’t show him other than that.
Sitll, god I love this movie so much.
