There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when we needed them, they could fight the battles that we never could…It’s called the Avengers Initiative.

The kiss of death.

This astonishing sculpture forms part of Barcelona’s Poblenou Cemetery.  The Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El beso de la muerte in Spanish) dates back to 1930. A winged skeleton bestows a kiss on the lips of a handsome young man: is it ecstasy on his face or resignation? Little wonder the sculpture elicits strong and varying responses from whoever gazes upon it.

Sansa often clasps her hands together when she’s anxious, in a defensive gesture to appear composed and in control. She develops this habit after season 1.

And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one

'Cause most of us are bitter over someone

Setting fire to our insides for fun

Ugh vibe so hard

Joel Sartore is a photographer whose portrait subjects regularly pee and poop in front of him. A little weird, but he doesn’t seem to mind.

The National Geographic photographer started a series called the Photo Ark in which he takes studio portraits of the world’s animals as if they were posing for a grade 7 yearbook. He aims to photograph every species that he can. As you can see above, the result are glorious.

Why take on such a project? Visibility creates passion, he says in a talk at TEDxDeExtinction.

"We have to make it interesting," he says. “We have to get people off the couch, [engage] them, and get them to meet these animals face-to-face…We have to get it to be popular to care about animals … People will save something if they see other people saving it.”
