my dad basically says your early 20’s are when you’re too young for anyone to take you seriously and you’re too old for anyone to feel sorry for you and he is 100% right

Thorin’s motivations in The Hobbit movie: deep, meaningful destiny to reclaim ancestral homeland
Thorin’s motivations in The Hobbit book:
"Outside the lab, Piff found that the rich donated a smaller percentage of their wealth than poorer people. In 2011, the wealthiest Americans, those with earnings in the top 20%, contributed 1.3% of their income to charity, while those in the bottom 20% donated 3.2% of their income. The trend to meanness was worst in plush suburbs where everyone had a high income, and never laid eyes on a poor person. Insulation from people in need, Piff concluded, dampened charitable impulses. Poorer people were also more likely to give to those charities servicing the genuinely needy. The rich gave to high-status institutions such as already well-endowed art galleries, museums and universities, while Feeding America, which deals with the nation’s poorest, got nothing."
This is what I mean when I say most poor people — at least those who know what it is to be hungry — will share their last can of beans with you if you’re starving, but so many middle-class and rich people won’t give you anything from their full cupboards, always finding excuses. Also, I’ve talked to delivery people and they say the people in my low-income housing project tip better than the rich people up the hill from us. This is a thing.
WE´RE GONNA GET TO SEE HAWKEYE, ACTUAL HAWKEYE NOT BRAINWASHED HAWKEYE, HANGING OUT WITH THE AVENGERS BEING A LITTLE SHIT. HE´S GONNA BE SUCH A LITTLE SHIT.
What if you went to a parallel universe and were going to meet your evil self but the version of you there is actually really nice and you’re the asshole
