Saul Metzstein: The really interesting shot we did [there], which is what Doctor Who has always wanted to do and never actually done, is the shot when you see the TARDIS as a box and you go into it in one shot. And we finally managed to do the “It’s bigger on the inside” shot.
I was actually thinking about this today when I rewatched the episode! I was like “Oh wow, they’ve never done that before.”
Now, to put the key in the lock, which should activate the tumblers, thus opening the door.
(Hapalochlaena lunulata) Scientific classification
The blue-ringed octopus is the size of a golf ball, but its venom is powerful enough to kill humans. There is no known antidote.
The octopus produces venom that contains tetrodotoxin, 5-hydroxytryptamine, hyaluronidase, tyramine, histamine, tryptamine, octopamine, taurine, acetylcholine, and dopamine. The major neurotoxin component of blue-ringed octopus venom was originally known as maculotoxin, but was later found to be identical to tetrodotoxin, a neurotoxin which is also found in pufferfish and cone snails. Tetrodotoxin blocks sodium channels, causing motor paralysis and sometimes respiratory arrest leading to cardiac arrest due to a lack of oxygen. The toxin is created by bacteria in the salivary glands of the octopus.
But, just to make sure a human doesn’t accidentally bump up against her, this octopus makes sure she’s brightly coloured and easily seen.
Because octopodes are awesome that way.
Wedding rings! The elvish engraving says:
“One ring to show our love, one ring to bind us, one ring to seal our love and forever entwine us.”
TUMBLR WHAT WAS I JUST SAYING YESTERDAY ABOUT RINGS
That’s the nerdiest/ cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
do hurry the fuck up gimli
Gimli’s fat pony is my fave
it looks like the Kate Beaton Shetland pony that poops
If we’re imagining LOTR characters as horses (yes I’m making that sideways leap)
Legolas has to be one of these creepy shiny thin Akhal-Teke horses:
and Gimli would indeed be a Shetland pony of the shaggiest, stockiest, poopingest kind.
I suppose that leaves the hobbits to be mini-horses.
