This tear is haunting, not because it is emotional, but because my understanding of the scope and damage of her trauma is likely just as small as hers.  This tear represents all the unprocessed horrors, the scrambled emotions, and deep scars her consciousness has yet to even discover.
What makes this scene devastating is not that Korra sheds this tear, but the fact that neither she or I truly know the reason for why it is shed. 

Yeah I’ve been seeing some analyses saying Korra is crying because of this or that, but truly, we are left unsure as viewers. Is Korra crying because she cannot currently fulfill her roles? Is she crying because she is sees her role being taken away by other people? Is she crying because Jinora reminds her of her past life? Is she crying because she doesn’t even know what her purpose is in life anymore?
We don’t know and that is the beauty behind this scene. There is no clear cause and effect, but we empathize with and validate that emotion, not knowing its exact reason. And that makes it all the more appealing; perhaps there is no one reason, perhaps it is a summation of reasons.
Regardless, we know it won’t be so easy for Korra to recover this time. The cause is not so easily taken care of when we are unsure of what it is. But, perhaps even more than any time before, we all want to see Korra triumph in the end and become a better person for it.

So we learn Hanna is secretly smart and A has blonde hair. She’s also been acting strange since Ali came back.… Is it just a coincidence?

Ooh this is interesting…

Meet The First Woman To Make It Into The FDNY’s Calendar Of Heroes. Danae Mines became one of the few female firefighters in the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) 11 years ago, despite her family telling her that only men joined the department. This year, she broke down another barrier by becoming the first woman to be featured in the FDNY’s 2015 Calendar of Heroes. She had been told that the honor was reserved for men, but when she saw the open call for firefighters, she went, despite feeling a little intimidated standing in line with more than 100 men.  There are currently only 41 women in the department, but perhaps the attention Danae is getting will increase that number. “I wanted my picture in the calendar so that young girls and young women can see me and know that they can do this job,” she told the New York Daily News.

Hell yeah!

Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.

look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon

And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.

And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

So metal
