Best scene this show has had so far.
We all know that Chritopher Nolan likes to have his story as realistic as it gets. He is also very punctilious, so I just thought:
What if he left us hints in The Dark Knight for Joker’s backstory?
Here is my guess:
1.) First of all, Joker is not thinking about himself as a lunatic. (But of course, everyone insane thinks that they are normal.)
2.) This is a keystone of my theory, there is no information about him. How is this possible? He is adult, there has to be something. Someone who remebers him. Guy with scars on his face is quite hard to forget. What if those information are missing because of some reason? What If there was something but someone deleted it? What if Joker was previously included in some secret activity?
3.) Look at those scars. If you are looking closely you may see that they are both different. One is precise, the second one is bit of amateurish. There are two stories Joker told about them, but I think neither of them is right. It’s not so easy. I think he did one of this scars to himself, but the first one not. He was captured and tortured. He went crazy and then he finished his face.
4.) Now, Joker is skilled with dynamite and gasoline. What if his previous activity had something to do with pyrotechnics?
5;6.) As you can see, Joker is skilled in combat fighting too. He not only managed to get policeman but even member of mob guard.
7.) Maybe in this seventh gif he is clearly showing us what was his profession. What if Joker was a soldier? He was captured by an enemy and then tortured. Their mission ended as a complete fiasco so his superiors made him disappeared officially? His problems with authorities may have its origin here.
8.) And this is the only thing we can know for sure. He hates his father. Not just because of his first story he told but here he confirms it. We can’t know if he ever had a wife, but he certainly had father and he loathes him.
"…is that a cardboard cutout of Thor?"
"HE HAD A THING NOW DO YOU WANT THE DAMN DORITO OR NOT"
omg im gomen this stopped being funny after i had more than two hours of sleep but it’s been on my hard drive since i saw iron man 3 so i quickly finished and posted it
Remember that intimate conversation you had with your son? The one where you said, “I love you and I need you to know that no matter how a woman dresses or acts, it is not an invitation to cat call, taunt, harass or assault her”?
Or when you told your son, “A woman’s virginity isn’t a prize and sleeping with a woman doesn’t earn you a point”?
How about the heart-to-heart where you lovingly conferred the legal knowledge that “a woman doesn’t have to be fighting you and you don’t have to be pinning her down for it to be RAPE. Intoxication means she can’t legally consent, NOT that she’s an easy score.”
Or maybe you recall sharing my personal favorite, “Your sexual experiences don’t dictate your worth just like a woman’s sexual experiences don’t dictate hers.”
Last but not least, do you remember calling your son out when you discovered he was using the word “slut” liberally? Or when you overheard him talking about some girl from school as if she were more of a conquest than a person?
I want you to consider these conversations and then ask yourself why you don’t remember them. The likely reason is because you didn’t have them. In fact, most parents haven’t had them.
Because they’re 6 and 2.
These conversations are in the que though.
I respect every person’s decision to do what they want with their own bodies, but here’s how people who decide not to participate in immunizations kill people for real:
Science-based medicine wiped out smallpox using vaccines. Smallpox, let me remind you, used to kill 400,000 Europeans PER YEAR! That’s all American gun deaths PLUS all American car deaths TIMES FIVE. So we got rid of that motherfather. With science. No big deal.
Measles, not quite the killer that Smallpox was, but we were on our way to eliminating it. Also with science. Using vaccines. Now, measles is coming back. That’s like 400 - 500 kids a year dying and 1000 people per year becoming disabled for life because hippies don’t want to vaccinate their kids.
You and your friends are healthy? That’s wonderful. I cannot tell you how happy I am for you and your friends. However, that’s not how vaccines work. You and your friends could probably all get measles and be fine a week later. No big deal. You know who it is a big deal to, though? The baby you accidentally gave measles to when you didn’t know you were contagious yet. And the old lady on the bus who was unfortunate enough to be inhaling oxygen right at the time you coughed.
They’re dead now. They’re dead forever because of your hippie parents.
Healthy people need to be vaccinated against diseases we have vaccinations for because some people are not healthy and those diseases will kill them.
Only $9.99 for ALL FIVE BOOKS! I already own them all…
If you ever wanted to read ASoIaF, here is a really sweet deal.
I’m bad, and that’s good. I will never be good, and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me.
we’ll be together for all of your lifetimes.
Themyscira: Returning Home
After dreaming about bringing Warrior Wonder Woman to life for years, this shoot at the Palace of Fine Arts feels like the zenith of the project. The setting was perfect, the weather beautiful, and the photographer - Andrew Ho - incredibly talented. I actually felt like an Amazon at home on Themyscira.

If we ever get a big screen Wonder Woman; She’d better look at least this awesome.
