MJ: Congratulations, Tiger! You hit another Jackpot!
You’re about to become a father!
We’re having a BABY!
Spectacular Spider-Man #220
PETER: Little May—?!
Y-You want to name our baby after…Aunt May?!
MJ: Couldn’t think of a better choice. Can you?
Amazing Spider-Man #417
MAYDAY: No. No. No. No. Nice, hair, dad. No. No. No. Ahhhh – that’s the one I want! I knew I recognised my guardian angel. She died before I was born, but Dad certainly has enough pictures of her around the house – and he’s often told me about that speech she once gave him. I’m real proud to be named after his beloved Aunt May. She’s just the kind of woman I hope to become someday.

The True Size of Africa: Our maps have lied for 500 years
This clip explains it nicely. For example, while our maps make it seem as if Greenland and Africa are of relative size, in reality the African continent is 14 times Greenland’s landmass. I’ve also blogged correct maps before, which you can find here.
"Where else can you put the Northern hemisphere but on the top."
"On the bottom." (Switches slide.)
"Yeah, but you can’t do that."
"Because it’s freaking me out."
Some of America’s most absurd laws illustrated in a photo series by Olivia Locher.
I Fought the Law (2014)
1. In Alabama it is illegal to have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at all times.
2. In Georgia picnics are prohibited in graveyards.
3. In California nobody is allowed to ride a bicycle in a swimming pool.
4. In Ohio it’s illegal to disrobe in front of a man’s portrait.
5. In Kansas it’s illegal to serve wine in teacups.
6. In Utah no one may walk down the street carrying a paper bag containing a violin.
7. In Colorado it’s illegal to have weeds in your yard.
8. In Maine it’s unlawful to tickle women under the chin with a feather duster.
So sick of people who pretend their problem is with the word “feminism” rather than the concept of gender equality.
