Labyrinth (1986)

One of the most important things I’ve ever learned.

My heart needs the mountains like my body needs the water.

I think the thing they do when I twirl should have a much larger slice of the pie.

Some claim that Evolution is just a theory, as if it were merely an opinion.

"A soaring spiritual experience"….beautifully said and so much truth.

The Muppets - “Mahna Mahna”

aka ‘the BEST SONG EVER’

If you don’t reblog Mahna Mahna, we’re not friends.

For Mahna Mahna reasons. And we are so friends.

One day in the field I was really sore and tired from digging meter deep shovel tests for a couple days and just generally having a shitty time. So one of my coworkers pulled up this song on his phone and then we all sang it the rest of the day.
Just picture a group of archaeologists, spread out in a field of corn taller than our heads, digging and cursing, when someone randomly shouts out “MANAH MANAH” and everyone else starts singing along.

This is the best story ever.

Always reblog.  If people get to see it 4,5 or 9 times, it’s okay.  It’s more than okay.  It’s perfect!

Thank you very, very much.  We call them adult Slurpees, but close enough to smoothies.
