When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.
She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.
Girl is 50 years old.
FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.
fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this.
You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half.
Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium.
This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks.
Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS.
she kicks ass like a coursing river
with all the force of a great typhoon
If you look at the angle, it’s not like she’s breaking it with her fingertips (she’s using a ridgehand blow, which is damn strong. You wouldn’t want to be on the wrong end of it), and that breaking the fingers thing is a bloody myth. Don’t try it at home, kids. Repeated percussion does make bones stronger, but it’s the same principle on which we old folx are encouraged to lift weights and do weight-bearing exercise to prevent osteoporosis. It’s not about fractures.
While there is genuinely quite a bit of bad-assery in breaking things with one’s hands because you genuinely do have to be quite strong, it’s a lot about technique, too.
(Not talking out my ass. I was a martial artist as a youngster, and I did learn breaking techniques).
She’s awesome, but you don’t have to make shit up. The reality is awesome enough. (And her character has surpassed Coulson as my favorite Shield agent, too!)
For everyone who has no idea what a ridgehand strike is, it’s like a karate chop done with the thumb side of the hand. If you don’t do it right, it’s very easy to break your thumb.
Why is Jack Skellington like this hero of emo culture he is basically the peppiest Motherfucker to ever exist.
got this snapchat from my friend in japan

Unnecessary love triangles
did you mean the entire teen fiction section
ANY OR UNNECESSARY
I DIDN’T KNOW THERE WERE SO MANY!
Stop hating on and generalizing teen fiction. They are great sources of reading material if you just take your time and choose wisely.
Regular sex is cool
BDSM sex is cool
Roleplaying/Costume sex is cool too
You know what isn’t cool though? Fucking using the blue turtle shell in mario kart like come on man I thought we were friends
