#the moment I knew I had to be indiana jones

This was actually Harrison Ford improvising. There was supposed to be a long complicated battle where he used the whip to disarm the guy, but Harrison had dysentery and it was hot and he said “Hey Steven can I just shoot him?” and Spielberg liked it so much it went in the movie.

Dysentery never looks so delicious

That guy who he shot spent months training with the sword

Ford was literally on the verge of dying during this part of the production.

First rule of the Doctor Jones fandom ALWAYS reblog this gifset when it comes on your dashboard.

yay!

Never bring a knife to a gunfight …

I hate how people here think that “proper general English” is the only way to speak English and all the others are considered “idiocy” like if language has anything to do with intelligence. I’m not even from the U.S. and I know this better than most of you.

Below is a list of all English dialects in North America:

American English - Standard American English is the general form

Bermuda

Bermudian English

How can I respond to people who get mad because POC get scholarships related to their race? A lot of my white friends are angry because according to them "white people have to work hard to get to college but POC (they usually use more derogatory terms though) get everything handed to them" and I don't know how to explain to them why they're wrong.

Well you can hit them with some facts

  • More Evidence That Colleges Are Giving Money to Those Who Need It Least Scholarships are more generous for wealthier families

  • this post is helpful so is this charts and information here
  • "Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population. Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students. These statistics demonstrate that, as a whole, private sector scholarship programs tend to perpetuate historical inequities in the distribution of scholarships according to race." —  The Distribution of Grants and Scholarships by Race Source

    1. When some white college applicants wonder if they are not getting into competitive schools, because so many of the spaces go to minorities, they are connecting their individual experience up with a conception of the larger social structure… When you look at the data, you will realize that it is absolutely impossible for most college rejections to be due to affirmative action.

    • Ten myths about affirmative action
    • "Why is it people always get so upset about Affirmative Action but not about legacies? For some reason we’re ok with the historically advantaged having a leg-up over the rest of us, but not the historically disenfranchise" — (bohemianarthouse)
    • Your friends are attributing a lack of merit to People of Color. They’re assuming we have no capability of earning anything and that we just get everything as undeserved handouts that are for no reason. They’re actually a direct reaction to very recent and still presently continuing active disenfranchising discriminatory racist legislation and entire systems and structures in unfair bias and benefit towards white people that have existed for centuries and are not being dismantled as years continue

    Where’s your friend’s complaint about that..? Where’s your friend’s complaint about how all the white people my dad’s age had unfair access to schools over Black people while Black people were fighting for civil rights legislation and had to leave school to protest to have their humanity recognized?

    Why isn’t your friend upset about my parents having dogs sicked on them by the police and having the Police commissioner drive through their neighborhood in a military tank to instill fear in Black people? Why isn’t your friend mad that my parents were the group of the first Black kids to go to their high schools and how much of an extreme unfair advantage that meant for the white students over my Black parents..?

    How do people forget history so quickly…?

    The breakdown of who gets scholarships are as follows:


    White: Scholarship Recipients-798,400 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$1,891 Million
    Black: Scholarship Recipients-129,000 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$345 Million
    Latino: Scholarship Recipients-103,900 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$236 Million
    Asian: Scholarship Recipients-52,800 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$186 Million
    American Indian: Scholarship Recipients-19,000 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$56 Million
    Native Hawaiian: Scholarship Recipients-6,200 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$30 Million
    Multi-Racial: Scholarship Recipients-40,200 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$156 Million

    So my question is, why are white people getting scholarships just for being white? Right after you answer that, please tell me why white people are getting MORE MONEY on their scholarships just for being white? Seems unfair. We have to stop this affirmative action. (Oh and just in case you’re all people who see a Tumblr post and REFUSE to see the source within that post, here is where those numbers came from: Bloop! Bloop!)

    • It’s so bizarre how when Affirmative Action is brought up, it more often then not ALWAYS leads to this specific dichotomy between the capable white person vs. an incapable minority - and it’s always this comparison. ( reverseracism )
