i feel as though the divergent movie didn't do the book justice??? am i the only one who thinks this orrr?




I thought the movie was great! I felt like it focused on the important elements to the story. Why did you feel like it didn’t serve it justice?

I personally feel they didnt do the love story justice. It wasnt as intimate.

Hmm. I actually thought there was a lot of chemistry between Shai and Theo. The tension between them was amazing. The looks they gave each other… But I understand what you mean. I sometimes wish there was more romance to it. But I also appreciate the slowness of their relationship. It’s sort of beautiful. What did Tris say? 

"We are not people who touch each other carelessly; every point of contact between us feels important, a rush of energy and relief."


I agree with you completely I just wih they would have had the chance to have bigger or more love scenes like there are in the book. I love the way it progresses slowly teasing us. I agree the actors were phenomenal


These Bacteria Are Wired to Hunt Like a Tiny Wolf Pack

There is an elaborate stealth communication network in the Earth beneath your feet. This smart web acts like a superorganism, fortifying defensive capabilities and coordinating deadly attacks on unsuspecting targets. But it’s not run by the NSA, the CIA, or the military. This web is made of bacteria.

A team of scientists led by Manfred Auer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have used cutting-edge 3-D microscopy to identify a new mechanism for bacterial networking. They observed elaborate webs of a common soil bacterium, Myxococcus xanthus, connected by thread-like membranes. This system of cellular pipelines suggests that some bacteria have evolved complex ways to deliver molecular cargo out of sight from snooping neighbors. Their work appears in the journal Environmental Microbiology.

Dark-Winged Angels: Roberto Ferri

Sumptuous oil paintings by Taranto, Italy romantic painter Roberto Ferri (b. 1978), modern master of his own Baroque revival, who some call Caravaggio’s heir. Who am I to argue?

We often see Ferri’s Lucifero posted here and at other blogs (the fifth image down). No idea why I hadn’t previously taken the time to look up more of this painter’s work. Gorgeous, one and all. But be they good or bad, why, we must wonder, are all of the angels’ wings dark?

Did anyone else think that first one was Sherlock?
