Diane Van Deren
Diane Van Deren suffered from constant seizures due to epilepsy. Before sensing a ‘premonition’ of a seizure, she would immediately go running outside to prevent the seizure from occurring. Eventually she went through a lobotomy procedure, removing a portion of her brain that dealt with her perception of time. This enabled Diane to receive an unusual yet interesting advantage when running in ultra-marathons. With a distorted judgment of time, she was able to run for days without feeling the same sense of exhaustion normal runners would experience if they were able to sense how long they had been running for. Diane is now one of the best ultra-runners in the world.

Donald Glover talking about the comments he received during his campaign to be the next Spider-Man (x)“I was talking about it with Dan Eckman, who directed my Bonfire video. Can you imagine that trailer? That would be dope. Like it makes sense… a poor black kid in Queens. Like it just fits.”
He woulda been a great fuckin’ Spider-Man.

Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
you cannot even breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
that you are down to your last two percent, but
nothing is infinite,
not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
you are going to find yourself again.
