Glaucus atlanticus, the blue dragon (also called sea swallow and blue angel), is a species of small-sized blue sea slug. This tiny animal spends its life floating upside-down on the surface of the Pacific, Atlantic, or Indian Ocean thanks to an air bubble which it swallows and keeps inside its belly, going wherever the currents and the wind take it.
This cute-looking creature is actually an aggressive predator that feeds on organisms much larger than itself, including the most venomous ones. It also can give you a poison sting when picking one up barehanded.
And aside from my issues with the story in an actual story telling sense, in that Thor is not a legacy or a title in the sense of Captain America or Hawkeye or even Iron Man and therefore, no one can be Thor but Thor, what I really dislike about this move from Marvel is that it’s in no way…
My sentiment exactly.
not trying to be political or start a huge thing right here but it kind of bugs me how news stations make such a big deal about the nationalities of the people on MH17. i completely understand that it is relevant for citizens of countries to know who from their country was on board, but stations like CNN keep focusing on how “at least one American was killed” and i just think we should be respecting and remembering all victims. this is an opportunity to unite as one, not pick and choose
Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.
After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

7. 18.14. King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima signed the book of condolences at the Ministry of Safety and Justice in The Hague for the victims of the MH17 crash.
The plane took off from Amsterdam yesterday and was shot down over Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board.
Yesterday, the King released a statement saying, “I have been profoundly moved by the terrible news about the crash of flight MH17 over Ukrainian territory. Like the rest of the Netherlands me and my wife are following the news closely and hope more becomes clear soon. We deeply sympathize with the family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances of the victims and with those who are still in uncertainty about their loved ones on board the aircraft.”
