Turns out Jesus is a BIONICLE fan. Who knew?




the awkward moment when deadpool is a better person than you


It starts out with Wade taking the subway, broke, and feeling down when a little girl walks up to him and asks “what’s the matter, Spider-Man?” and Deadpool decides to pretend he’s Spider-Man just to be nice to her. She then proceeds to give him HER OWN POCKET MONEY as thanks for keeping the city save. That’s the money he uses to pay for his food. It makes the whole comic so much better.

How have I grown up watching these movies, for some 30+ years and not pondered this…..

This is actually the best explanation I’ve heard so far and this new headcanon/thing has been accepted immediately. 

Thank you.

He referenced The Girl In The Fireplace for most of the episode, shut up

Fleshing Out Spherus Magna, Part 1: Immortality Devices


The natives of Spherus Magna do not naturally live for upwards of 100,000 years (8,333 years in our time). Their natural lifespan is closer to a few hundred years. However, prior to the Dreaming Plague, the Great Beings created what they called “immortality devices”: implants to slow down the natural process of aging. After some study and debate, the Great Beings made the devices available to the common people.

The following characters may have no need of immortality devices:

* Annona is above immortality devices, and simply exists, not subject to age.

* The Great Beings may have naturally longer lifespans than others, or they may have developed immortality devices for themselves early on.

* The Element Lords were infused with the nature of their respective element, and avoid aging by cycling through different manifestations of their element. If they were somehow stuck in their current form, they would be susceptible to age.

The following beings were implanted with immortality devices:

* Raanu, Surel, and Certavus were born just over 265,000 years ago [22,083 YA], during the time of Lein, and immortality devices were first developed during their lifetimes.

* Ackar, Sahmad, Tarix, Telluris, and Tuma were born and had their immortality devices implanted before the Dreaming Plague.

* Berix, Gelu, Kabrua, Kiina, Malum, Metus, Perditus, Strakk, Stronius, and Vastus were implanted with immortality devices prior to the Core War.

The following beings were never implanted with immortality devices:

* Lein died of natural causes before immortality devices were developed for the main population.

* Kyry is also very young. The Kyry who recovered a sample of energized protodermis alongside Raanu died shortly thereafter, but his name was reused. This explains why the two depictions of Kyry in official story material differ so drastically in appearance and characterization.

* Atakus, Branar, Crotesius, Fero, Gresh, Kirbold, Kirbraz, Scodonius, Tarduk, and the Hero Agori were all born recently, during the Age of Decline, and have never been implanted with immortality devices.

* All background Agori, Glatorian, Bone Hunters, and Skrall mentioned in Bara Magna story materials were born during the Age of Decline, and are not immortal.

Fleshing Out the Matoran Universe, Part 4: Early History of the Matoran Universe


What is described as a “year” in BIONICLE is not directly analogous to a year in human measurements. Instead, a BIONICLE year is roughly equivalent to one month of our time. Thus, a journey of 100,000 BIONICLE years is a journey of 83,333 human years — still a long time, but much more manageable. Other references to time (such as weeks, days, hours, etc.) are more or less similar to our human measurements. The exceptions to this rule are any time periods specified as five years or less in canon story, such as the Toa Nuva’s adventures, the length of the Time Slip, and the number of years since Mazeka and Vultraz first clashed.

Over the 100,000-year journey of Mata Nui, the universe inside him passed through several ages. They are listed below, along with the notable events that accompanied them.

The Time Before Time (100000+ YA) [8333+ YA]: This time refers to the birth of Mata Nui and the Matoran Universe, when both were created by the Great Beings during the struggles of the Core War.

* Tren Krom rules the universe as the first Matoran labor in darkness to build their homes and citadels.

* Toa Helryx helps in the construction of Metru Nui.

* Artakha and Karzahni clash over the Mask of Creation; Artakha wins.

* The Kanohi Ignika is forged and placed under Voya Nui for safekeeping.

* A Great Being hides himself within the universe as a Matoran: Velika.

* 100000 YA [8333 YA]: Mata Nui is born, and the Great Beings remove Tren Krom from power, exiling him to a barren isle.

The Age of Beginnings (100000 YA - 95000 YA) [8333 YA - 7916 YA]: As Mata Nui’s journey began, the universe within him was still forming, and underwent several momentous changes in its founding days. This age was characterized by chaos and independence, as Toa, Makuta, Vortixx, and others struggled to find a secure purpose in the universe.

* 100000 YA [8333 YA]: The Hand of Artakha disbands, and the Order of Mata Nui is secretly formed in its place.

* 100000 YA [8333 YA]: Mata Nui founds the Brotherhood of Makuta and assigns them the duty of creating and maintaining Rahi and flora within the universe.

* 100000 YA [8333 YA]: Lesovikk’s Toa team is slain by Zyglak.

* The two Glatorian pilots in the Core Processor are slain by an unknown agent.

* Velika brings about a cognitive revolution among the inhabitants of the universe, rendering them truly sapient.

* A brief trading dispute stemming from Xia is ended by the Brotherhood, and the Vortixx agree to lower their prices.

* The Kanohi Dragon is created by Makuta Miserix and attacks Metru Nui, but is subdued by Toa; Takadox witnesses the event.

The Age of Six Kingdoms (95000 YA - 80000 YA) [7916 YA - 6666 YA]: Unable to tolerate the disorganized mess of the previous age, Mata Nui appointed six prime warlords to rule the universe and maintain order. This went poorly.

* 95000 YA [7916 YA]: Mata Nui manifests to six prime specimens and declares them his chosen rulers. These Barraki band together and begin to conquer the universe.

* 87000 YA [7250 YA]: The League of Six Kingdoms forms tenuous pacts with Metru Nui and the Brotherhood of Makuta.

* The Red Star’s sendback teleporter breaks down, and dead beings no longer return to the Matoran universe.

* 80000 YA [6666 YA]: The League of Six Kingdoms plots to overthrow Mata Nui, but is betrayed to the Brotherhood of Makuta and ambushed; the Barraki are taken to the Pit.

The Age of Turmoil (80000 YA - 70000 YA) [6666 YA - 5833 YA]: Without the rule of the League of Six Kingdoms, the role of enforcing order was taken up by the Brotherhood of Makuta — just in time to contend with the Great Disruption. This age also saw the birth of the Dark Hunters.

* 79500 YA [6625 YA]: The Matoran Civil War breaks out in Metru Nui over a trading dispute, beginning the Great Disruption.

* 79100 YA [6591 YA]: Jovan’s Toa team retrieves the Kanohi Ignika, travels to Karda Nui, and saves Mata Nui’s life.

* 79100 YA [6591 YA]: Makuta Teridax ends the war with the Archives Massacre, and Makuta Miserix assigns each region of the universe a Makuta overseer.

* 79100 YA [6591 YA]: Makuta Mutran relays information from Tren Krom to Teridax, who calls a convocation and seizes command of the Brotherhood.

* 79000 YA [6583 YA]: Metru Nui enters a golden age of peace and prosperity.

* “Ancient” and “the Shadowed One” conquer the island of Odina and form the Dark Hunters.

* 70000 YA [5833 YA]: Makuta Spiriah experiments on the Skakdi race, resulting in his exile and the quarantine of Zakaz.

Check back tomorrow for the other half of Matoran history!
