When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.

She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.

She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.

Girl is 50 years old.

FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.

fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this. 

You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half. 

Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium. 

This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks. 

Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS. 

she kicks ass like a coursing river

with all the force of a great typhoon

swag • per • a • tion /swaəgpərashion/

adj. To channel the swagger inside of you and turn it into pure teleportation energy.

i.e. “dude, this party blows, i’m swagperating out of here”

this person wrote a noun, listed it as an adjective, and defined and used it as a verb

"Well how much can they really do with this train theme" I said all those months ago.

I was a fool. I was a fool who did not recognize a beautiful new world when I saw it.

CONFESSION: I had a dream where I was at some convention watching David Gaider formally announce Chef Gordon Ramsey as the voice of the male Inquisitor for the next game

"This stew is so bad even a Fereldan wouldn’t eat it!"
"You put so many peppers in this, fucking Javaris wants your recipe!"
"That steak is perfectly cooked…FOR BLOOD MAGIC!!!"

"This soup is colder than winter at Ostagar."
"This steak is so burnt that the Chantry’s building statues of it."
"The seasoning is so dull I thought it was one of the Tranquil."
“Have you put deathroot in this?”
"This quail is so bloody; is that Arl Howe in the kitchen?"
"These noodles are as greasy and slippery as a merchant-born."
"This kitchen is so filthy, Oghren wouldn’t go near it."
"This meat is so dull and gray I thought I was back in Denerim."
"This dragonsteak is burnt.”

IM CRYING

"This quail is so raw, Shale’s still trying to stomp it!"
"This dish is as cold as Winter’s Breath!"
"Andraste’s Ashes couldn’t save this fucking dish!"
"Did you let fucking Alistair cook this for you?!"
"This dish would be perfect, if you served it to a Tevinter Magister!"
"Even the demons of gluttony wouldn’t touch this!"
"Even Varic couldn’t bullshit enough to make this meal appealing!"
"This dish is so tainted, the fucking Wardens can sense it!"
"This dish is bloodier than Highever Castle!"
"Morrigan actually approves of this poison you’ve made!"
"Alrik wouldn’t even serve this to a Mage!"
"Did Anders help you collect this shit?!"
"Congratulations! The Templars are trying to annul the God damn kitchen after this disaster!"

Don’t usually reblog confessions but the responses to this really made me laugh. :)

"I’ve said ‘How’ so many times Nathaniel is getting offended!"
"Your cooking is so foul Zevran is using it to ward off the Guildmasters!"
"This experience was so Harrowing Gregoir has decided to execute you before you pass the time limit!"
"This dish is so ominous that it brought back Cullen’s stutter!"
"We offered this to Ruck and he said he’d rather continue eating Darkspawn!"

I remember seeing this confession initially, but I was laughing so hard at some of these quips when I saw it reblogged.
Y’done good, fandom.  That’ll do.

Time decides WHO & WHEN you meet someone in your life, your heart decides HOW LONG you are going to be in their life and they in yours, and your brain (which dictates your behavior) decides HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO YOU in your life.
WIth love,
