bonnefoybaggins asked:

Why does it matter that Galadriel is on the ground? Gandalf is on the ground and nobody is ccomplaining. It just seems like feminist look for something to complain about. Frankly I'm glad they aren't showing her as some Mary-Sue, like most elves are shown as. That poster makes her seem human, in a tough battle ready to protect the one she loves.

ewebean answered:

  • she’s an elf queen
  • she’s a powerful sorceress
  • Gandalf, in absolute terms, is a Maia and is considerably more powerful than her. But he is expressly forbidden by the Valar to never use his full strength
  • Galadriel is of elvenkind but she has no such limitations and has protected Lorien from decay and corruption for a millennia
  • She has been on Middle-Earth longer than Gandalf and has thus seen and participated in great events which is most likely why he highly respects her council
  • they didn’t take any liberties showing her tremendous powers in LOTR other than that scene
  • oh yesimage
  • that scene
  • you just called elves mary-sues
  • bye


In Seattle, Washington, an aged and allegedly “haunted” coke machine has been in the same spot for over fifteen years, but despite its outward appearance the machine is fully functional. In fact, the machine has always worked. Some of the drinks it dispenses are normal Coke products, but some are products that are no longer on the market and don’t exist any more. Some of the buttons are labeled as a “mystery” and give a random product when pushed. The business closest to it, a locksmith, state that they have never witnessed anyone restocking the machine at any time, No one ever has, and the mystery of it has attracted tons of people to test out the machine for themselves. It’s also pretty interesting to note that the prices for the sodas have risen over time, recently being from 55 cents to 75. I guess ghost machines have to pay the bills somehow.
