Another way to present the 9 types of intelligence as exemplified by my How Do We Measure Intelligence post.

The basic idea is that different people are good at different things. These 9 probably don’t cover the wide range of smarts we all possess, but it’s a start.

As Albert Einstein said, ”Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

One of my desk-drawer projects is a tabletop RPG where these are the stats.

What Bully sounds like when he’s sleeping, close captioned.

He hog shoe, yeah, yeah, yeah. (He holds you close and hog shoe all night long.)

best goddamn cover I’ve heard so far

Fuck goddamn I love this so much I just want to have been the person who came up with the idea I LOVE IT JESUS FUCK COVERS OF MUSIC THAT GO IN OTHER DIRECTIONS ARE THE WHOLE REASON TO GET UP IN THE MORNING

PLEASE WATCH THIS

This is so far up my alley that it found the muggers lurking there and beat them up and left them webbed to the wall for the cops to pick up later with a note signed “Your friendly neighborhood Jazz Cover”

That metaphor got away from me a little.

Just listen. Also…hotchacha.

OMG that cat with the trumpet, though! Watch him LISTENING to the other musicians.

Fantastic!

It would make my world a better place if this were the actual GoT theme on the show. 

Oh man I cannot wait for the fanart to go along with this.  Daenerys in ’20s fashion!  Yasssss!

Also I cannot decide which is my favorite version now, this or the version by the Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra (found here), because ska.

Ooh! I hadn’t heard the ska version before.

Congrats to Shannon Wheeler for making THE MOST GUILT INDUCING PRESS BADGE EVER for this weekend’s Small Press Expo.

You can just slide “game” right in there.

It makes me happy to know I’m pretty much the same height as Spider-Man.

Wait, Tony Stark’s not really 6’6” is he? That must be with the armor.
For some reason, it weirds me out that I’m taller than Cap and Punisher and the Thing, but it would weird me out if I wasn’t taller than Tony.

 he’s 6’6” in his iron man suit.  616!Tony is around 6’1” or something out of his suit.

I’M GOIGN TO PISS I’M TALLER THAN WOLVERINE

Why the fuck is Wolverine so short

Wolverine is known to be short, but what’s really getting me is how all of the female superheroes are so tall! Black Widow at 5’7” is the only one who’s within like two standard deviations of the average female height. I totally love tall women but it’s kind of creepy that, despite being the average female height, the only human in this picture who’s shorter than me is Wolverine.
The men also skew taller-than-average, but it’s less dramatic - at least most of the human men who aren’t supernaturally height-enhanced (like Hulk) are within normal range, just taller than average (average American male height is 5’10” or so, average female height is 5’4”)

I think this is compounded by how many female Marvel heroes they just *opted not to draw*.  Like, how tall is Kitty Pryde?  How tall is She-Hulk?  How tall is Wasp?

Speculation: that chart was, it seems, done for a Halloween Costumes site. (Or at least that’s what the attribution suggests.) I think it’s just characters who have appeared in movies or will shortly, as with Ant Man, although that’s as much a joke as anything else.
Also: why is Mystique not in the “varies” category? She can be any almost any of these people.
