I've had this on my computer for a while, I believe I got it here, even.
I think the concept of this is very beautiful, and I wish to share it with anyone who hasn't seen it.

I would love to have this done to something I needed repaired.

kintsukuroi
n) (v. Phe) "to repair with gold"; the art
of repairing pottery with gold or silver
lacquer and understanding that the piece
is more beautiful for having been broken

There are some things that can ONLY be fixed with Gold.

Mckayla Maroney won silver at last years Olympics. She made this face during the ceremony, and it went viral. Where were you?

Oooooooooohhhhhhhh. Is funny because she wins silver.

Every time I see that pic I remember this mofo I found in one of my M&B games.

Exactly. You win a cookie.

What type of cookie?
User avatar #93 to #90 - aesgard (02/26/2013) [-]
A cookie made from the blood and tears of your enemies, that's it.
User avatar #11 to #2 - joeyliquid (02/26/2013) [-]
Could of repaired to pot and given it to the shogun, since often in Japan they respected beauty a lot more then pure wealth.

There is no timeline. There are two zelda games that they've remade over and over with different titles. Link to the past for 2d ones and Ocarina of Time for 3d.
User avatar #204 to #169 - nintendohero (02/27/2013) [-]
Nintendo released an official timeline of the Zelda games. The stories do not really overlap or connect completely but they have stated the order of the games.

You’ve got to be kidding me. I’ve been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It’s just common sense.

It's not the worst thing that happened. I didn't mind. I thought it was ******* hilarious, actually.

So yeah, this.
User avatar #322 to #321 - garymotherfinoak (02/27/2013) [-]
Alright, at least you got something good out of it.

lemme guess, your pokemon wallpapers?
User avatar #323 to #322 - bluenebula (02/27/2013) [-]
Yup. I didn't know you saw those. Kami did her own in a reply. They look MUCH better.
User avatar #325 to #323 - garymotherfinoak (02/27/2013) [-]
i saw hers too just now. both of yours look great! nice job on 476 thumbs btw.
User avatar #326 to #325 - bluenebula (02/27/2013) [-]
That whole thing got me about 1000 in total. Most likely more. Today was a good day. I should drink more.
User avatar #327 to #326 - garymotherfinoak (02/27/2013) [-]
<:c but that's liver and brain poison in a bottle..
User avatar #328 to #327 - bluenebula (02/27/2013) [-]
Moderation, my sober friend. You can drink 24 beers a day and never get drunk if you do it right.
User avatar #329 to #328 - garymotherfinoak (02/27/2013) [-]
you don't seem to do it very moderately. just because you don't get drunk doesn't mean it's not poisonous. You're not going to die from drinking 7 alcohols or something like that (well you could if you got it up to 0.45 somehow, like having it go through the other end where it doesn't go through any cleansing process), but it still damages your brain and your liver along with other parts of the body.

I already know it's not good for you. It's not like I think Jack Danial's is the cure to cancer or anything. I drink it for the same reason you kids sit on the computer all day. It passes time, I enjoy myself, and I have no friends.    
   
You know, except for that last part. Beer makes friends for you.

Alcohol doesn't hurt people. Stupid people hurt people. Go drink a gallon of milk as fast as you can and you'll see what I mean.

Besides, it's better then those energy drinks you kids are drinking these days. Monsters, and whatever else there is.

And yet, there's a bitter-sweet, melancholic undertone that pulls on us all, like the ebb and flow of the sea, beckoning us to the sweet release of death.

I get it, it's just like people.   
Instead of laying pitifully broken,   
we can fill in our scars and become even more beautiful than before we fell apart.   
   
Ergo, scars do not form on the dying.   
They are reminders that we survived.

I've screencapped this little tidbit and saved it. I will treasure it forever.

You two have captured the essence of the internet. One person sits musing on the deep and philosophical essence of a concept, then a man by the name of smellyboner waltzes through and comments about how all this relates to a scar on his dick.

I love you both.
