when I was younger I truly believed Wonder Woman’s secret identity was Lois Lane and I have no clue why.
like I guess I never heard them call her ‘Diana’ but I watched the pilot like fifty times, how’d I make such an assumption?
Ok, you’re not the only one (although that “other one” is not me but my son.) The question I have for you is whether you feel more connected to the idea of Clark and Lois (a superhero that feels connected to humanity through loving a non-supoerpowered human that deserves to be called a hero in her own right) or Superman and Wonder Woman (focusing solely one the superheroics and the true identity of WW as the daughter of the queen of the amazons and Zeus) as far as ships go. That would tell you whether you felt more connected to which ship. FTR, I suppose you could like both but unless there’s a way for Diana to give up her mantle to Lois I doubt there will ever be another story where you could “Have your cake and eat it too” with regards to Wonder Woman’s secret identity being Lois Lane. Please note I said “another”. There is an elseworld story called “Whom Gods Destroy” where it ends with just this premise. Diana is deemed unworthy (after siding with the Nazis in WWII) of the mantle and Athena, Artemis and one other goddess send Lois through a whole bunch of tests that ends with her becoming Wonder Woman. It’s not a favorite among a lot of people (it’s a mythical journey in more ways than one and like many of the greek myths is convoluted and confusing in it’s storytelling).
I’m a little stunned at the moment. It looks (according to an early home test) that I’m pregnant. My second isn’t even a year! He’ll be turning one next month but I was hoping to wait until 15 months before trying for he third. Hubby doesn’t know yet so if you know me personally, don’t tell any of my family yet (and yes Speedlag and Contentsofafaeriesoocket this means you two).
We SERIOUSLY need to get our stuff together and get ourselves a house now. There’s no way we can squeeze two kids into the library or two kids into the bedroom (>_<).
the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the effects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.
I did not know this, I do think, in this instance that makes the one done by Kermit the Frog even more relevant (He points out that as a cold-blooded amphibian it could literally turn him dormant).
