My favorite part about this is that they told Matt specifically not to swing on the railing.
"Matt, don’t swing on the railing."
"Okay." *Must. Not. Swing. On. The Rai… Fuck this.. I’m gonna swing on the railing. YOLO.*
Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

I am usually referred to as the Master. Universally.
This is why I’m obsessed with the sky!
I think it’d be rather exciting to meet a pirate.
#pirates of the caribbean was kind of a formative influence#and nothing about these movies so much as her—snarling selfish sea-hungry pirate king#sometimes I rewatch the first movie and laugh to myself about how little it understood her and will; how it tried to convince us#that will was the pirate because he was chasing after her; and pirates are obsessed with treasure#when elizabeth spends the first movie chasing freedom and the next two chasing him; chasing her freedom; chasing war; chasing the world#her wedding was interrupted and she held the man responsible at gunpoint until he gave her letters of pardon#she was mistaken for a sea goddess and accepted it without question; she led an army to war as though it were her due#and she did it all without ever apologizing for the lives she takes or the lies she tells and when she betrays sparrow with a kiss#he hisses ”pirate” because what else could she be
I think this is due a rewatch
Yeah, this made me want to give this story a second chance without the ‘look isn’t Johnny Depp so attractively quirky?’ goggles they hand out with it.
