I like how the original title for The Fault in Our Stars is all poetic and then the Norwegians just translated it to “fuck destiny” and I think that’s beautiful
Aw man, I thought for sure this had to be bullshit but nope
Why is it always Norway
Norway, a nation where you can put the word “fuck” on the cover of a young adult novel.
I think it’s about time to mention that the word “fuck” and the word “faen” aren’t really translations of each other. We all know the meaning of the word “fuck”. The word “faen” has nothing to do with having sex, in fact it’s more likely a shortening of the word “fanden”, which means “devil”. So the literal translation of “Faen ta skjebnen” would be something like “Devil take fate”. Which sounds a bit awkward, so let’s instead go with “Damn fate”.
The only reason, I think, why “faen” is translated into “fuck” is that they are both very common four letter swear words beginning with f.
: Absolutely love this track!
This is a wildlife bridge in the Netherlands. Wildlife bridges are designed to help animals cross busy highways in safety. They don’t just protect wildlife from being hit by cars - they also connect fragmented habitats and help populations intermingle and breed.
The Netherlands is leading the way in designing these bridges. The country is home to more than 600 similar crossings.
Starting October, a new Thor is taking over and she looks bada*s!!! I’m excited, Thor has always been my favorite of Marvels ‘big 3’ so I can’t wait to see how this goes.

I’m sorry, but… Nope nope nope? I am all for more female characters in both Marvel and DC, but this is just stupid. If you want a new female character, make up a new character that is actually something innovative and interesting, don’t just randomly take Mjolnir away from Thor and give it to a random woman (no matter how many layers of story they wrap this in, that’s essentially what it is), and then call her Thor. Thor is Thor, not the power of Mjolnir.
