midgardian etiquette 101: when going to their homes, hang your coat first or in some cases, your mjolnir.

naw maybe it’s actually asgardian custom to check your weapons at the door

It was medieval custom to check your weapons at the door of the meadhall before greeting the king of the place you were going to. It was courteous and showed respect. You can see it in Beowulf. 

what i don’t understand is how that hook can hold the mjolnir.

the hook is worthy

the hook is worthy

Peter Pan would disagree.

I’ve not read the comics but I always figured Mjolnir wasn’t heavy so much as stubborn, and if it decided it didn’t wanna move it just wouldn’t. It sits on Loki, rather than crushing him in Thor 1, and in Avengers it rests on the floor of the ship, and trying to pick it up Hulk starts breaking the floor with his weight, but Mjolnir doesn’t seem to weight anything at all (If it was as heavy as Hulk implied, it would drag the whole ship to the ground right?). Mjolnir isn’t heavy, cos its not going down, instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. Hence, the hook doesn’t hold it, it merely remains in place.

so what you’re trying to say is that Mjolnir is like a chicken head

 instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. 
OK SO WHAT YOU ARE SAYINGIS THAT WHEN THIS HAMMER WAS FORGED IN THE HEART OF A STAR IT BECAME A FIXED QUANTUM POINTAND THE UNIVERSE MOVES AROUND IT—AND THOR IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE PROPER RESONANCE TO INTERACT WITH IT ON A QUANTUM LEVELAND SO HE IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE LEVERAGE REQUIRED TO SHIFT THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE AROUND THE FIXED POINT THAT IS MJOLNIR
THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE

DUDE YOU GUYS SCIENCED THORS HAMMER THAT IS AWESOME

i just… can’t have this not on my blog.

Hey guys!!!! I can’t believe there are actually 5 thousand of you that want to follow me!! It’s crazy to think that just a few months ago there were only 30 of you! I blame Manda and Jess haha!

So as a thank you for putting up with my toddler spam, my late night wine book rants, and Maureen and my banter back and forth. I would like to give away some books!

So here are the rules!!:

• I will be choosing TWO winners! The first winner will get either two paperbacks or one hardcover book of their choice! The second winner will receive one paperback of their choice!

• That’s right! Any book you want!!
I would have chosen some of my favorite books, but I want you to get whatever book you’ve been dying to read!

• This is open internationally! I will be purchasing the books through the book depository! So you just have to be ok with giving me your address for shipping purposes!

• Now the usual fine print. You must be my follower! I will check! Also likes count. Reblog as much as you would like. Just don’t spam your dash!

• Liam will be picking the two winners from a fishbowl. But if there are way too many for me to write down, I will be using a number generator. This will happen on August 10th

I need to take up drawing again..

literaryescapist:

As promised, my giveaway, even if it’s a little late.
Looking at the books, can you guess the theme? I am giving away my very favourite German books that more people need to read! This giveaway will have two winners, who can each choose one book from the ones pictured above, either in the English translation or, if you wish, in the German original. (Exception: Felidae, for which I couldn’t find an English translation on TBD, so this is available only in German). These books are my very dear darlings, masterpieces of German Literature, and I want to share them with as many people as possible.
For more information on each of the books, click on the picture, or here.

Here’s the deal:

  • You have to be following me, literaryescapist, to enter, since this is a thank you to my followers.
  • The giveaway is open internationally, i.e. to all the countries that Book Depository ships to. If you are unsure if your country is among those, please check here.
  • This giveaway ends August 15th, at noon GMT.
  • I will randomly select the winners and notify them via ask - so your ask box has to be open.
  • The winners will habe 48 hours to respond before new winners are chosen.
  • You obviously have to be willing to give me your address for shipping purposes.
