Okay. So everyone jokes about Jack sinking. At first I was like, “well the water is cold but I can’t imagine him not struggling..” And then it hit me. What if Jack hit the base of his skull/the back of his head on ice on the way down? And was just… knocked out or worse, died before even having the chance to drown.
And that’s why he sank.
But I actually think the main reason why we didn’t see him drowning is that it’s still a movie aimed at kids. Can you imagine him struggling, screaming for his sister underwater, trying so hard to get back to the surface, but his limbs go numb too fast, his whole body in shock and as he eventually stops struggling his last breath leaves as a tiny bubble of air, and the life inside of his eyes just fades. Would be kinda traumatizing for a child, I think. (I’m glad they showed him with closed eyes and made him look peacefully, as if he was asleep, because drowned bodys with open empty eyes are one of the scariest things ever)
Oh my god don’t say such things in vivid detail!
But seriously, he totally died from cold shock. That’s how a lot of people who’ve fallen in thin ice die. The shock made him incredibly weak and couldn’t move his arms and legs to get back up to the surface. And when you hit cold ass water, it’s gonna do shit to your breathing and can make you hyperventilate. Thus…floating, dead, cute boy in the lake. Plus if you think about it, he didn’t exactly have his mouth closed when he fell in so he didn’t even have time to suck in a quick breathe. But even if he did he’d still have to get over the initial shock of immersion and then only have ten minutes to get his ass back up for air before his body would cut off blood flow to his muscles.
And he is DAMN SKINNY. If you got a nice layer of thick body fat (not overweight mind you), you have a better chance of surviving cold waters. Jack…hah…hahahaha he’s faaaaaaaar from that. The kid’s body type is NOT made for the cold water. Like putting paper in water, it don’t work out right. XD
…………..I wish I got to see more of him drowning *god I am awful sorry but anything dealing with water is the BEST angst for me when it comes to precious babies*
why is it that all the most popular posts on tumblr
are written like this
with no capitals
and no punctuation
i just really want there to be a popular and grammatically correct post on tumblr
I think the majority of Tumblr’s dialect (is there a word for a written dialect? Hardly anyone speaks Tumblr.) comes from influence within the tag system.
My theory is that the lack of capitalization is stylized, ironic laziness (same reason as the increasingly popular use of abbreviations such as idek and ikr, and particles like desu), whereas the punctuation stems from the tag system, where commas split up tags. So, “this is like, so totally cool” would be tagged “this is like” “so totally cool.”
With commas struck from the tumblr blogger’s arsenal, they rely on run-on sentences and other means to show emphasis. One such means, spacing, is another quirk influenced by the tags. If you repeat a tag, it will only show once, which is why you get “really r e a l l y weird things like this.”
Also common on Tumblr are people who show their enthusiasm through their text by pretending their haNDS ARE FRKEAKIGN OUT AN D THEY CANT TPYE OMFGGGG. This adaptation is actually pretty cool, I think, as it serves to communicate tone across a very toneless medium.
Did you hear that noise? That was the sound of my desk breaking. My linguistics boner just snapped it in half.
OH NO. THIS IS WONDERFUL.
is no one going to comment on drake’s trickster!jane cosplay
