Ride of the Valkyires

\val-'kir-ē\ (noun)Any of the maidens of Odin who chose the heroes to be slain in battle, and then conducted the soldiers to either Valhalla or Fólkvangr. They were also the cupbearers to einherjar, the soldiers brought to Valhalla.Originally from 1768 from Old Norse "valkrja" (literally chooser of the slain). From "valr" (those slain in battle) + "kyrja" (chooser). From root "kyjosa" (to choose) from Proto Germanic *keuson, which came from Proto Indo Eurpoean *geus- (to taste, choose).

That’s the most accurate assessment of Tony Stark’s character I’ve seen yet.

The time our entire design class dressed up for Halloween as the design teacher (who notoriously almost only wore grey sweaters and always had a cafeteria coffee in hand).
I remember him walking down a super long empty hall and we all just turned the corner at the other end and started running towards him and he ran away yelling “FUcK YOU GUYS” and in retrospect I almost can’t believe he didn’t suffer a heart attack.
Pretty sure we won a pizza party for best costume that year.

IVE SEEN THIS ABOUT TEN TIMES AND IM JUST NOW NOTICING THAT THE ACTUAL TEACHER IS IN THE PICTURE TOO
