Q:Why does Chris Evans always grab his left boob when he laughs?
Hello, anon, and thank you for the question.
This topic has been studied by by researchers for years. There are three prevailing theories that I will relay to you now.
1. It keeps him on the ground.
You may notice in the gif above that Chris’ leg starts to rise as he laughs, possibly a precursor to his entire body undergoing a sort of lift off due to his joy. Chris then employs his upper body strength to force himself to obey the laws of gravity.
2. To check on his physique.
As you may be aware, anon, it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a superhero body. Chris is concerned that in the time he has spent sitting down, sans working out or eating, he has lost muscle mass. Understandably, he feels the need to make sure that he is still a specimen.
3. Object permanence.
Object permanence is a term applied to the understanding that an object still exists even when you cannot see it. Chris closes his eyes when he laughs, making him unable to see that he has not disappeared. By grabbing his left boob, Chris knows that he has not somehow ceased to exist.
I hope this helps.
#all i can picture is dean talking to cas #like cas buys a video camera because it was on sale #and a picture camera can only capture stills of #all the beautiful and wondeful moments that happens in his life #in humanity in general #and dean is feeling really weird because the last time he was recorded was #with the ghostfacers and he didn’t really like them #but dean talks anyways #like he starts saying some random shit about sammy and kevin and the bunker #and asks how human life is treating cas #and then dean starts talking about cas to cas #because talking about your feelings to your fallen angel is easier on camera#than actually staring him straight in the eye #and dean tells the camera how wonderful he thinks cas is #with his constant sex hair #and how grumpy he is in the morning always drinking 3 cups of coffee #while sam complains about how cas needs to eat healthy #dean talks about how much he loves when cas reads vonneguet #or any type of work really out loud #when he’s confused with how humans construct sentences #i mean english isn’t his first language #and then he talks about how much he’s glad cas has decided to stay #even though dean is a shit boyfriend #and dean get’s all embarressed and starts blushing #and smiling and looking away #then cas turns off the camrea #stares at this beautiful human #that he pulled out of hell #who thought he didn’t deserve to be saved #he looks at /his/ dean [x]
"So let me get this straight - you want me to talk… to the camera?”
Castiel sighs and rolls his eyes, “Yes, Dean, to the camera.” Dean hesitates for a moment before smirking and licking his lips, gearing himself up to say something but Cas stops him before he can, “And I don’t mean flirt with the camera, Dean.”
The hunter laughs and is clearly a little proud of himself when he says, “Okay okay, you want me to just talk to the camera?” Castiel nods from behind the device and Dean takes a moment to think about what he wants to say.
The first thing that comes to mind is a story about Sam and this one time when he was fourteen and he tried to ask out a girl that was two years older than him, only to end up with a face full of egg yolk and a torso that was completely covered in icing. Somehow that devolves into a story about the first romantic thing he tried to do for a girl (it involved thorns and ants in… personal places) and somehow he ends up talking for a half hour about his and Sam’s most embarrassing moments involving past relationships.
"Oh man," Dean sighs a little wistfully as he shakes his head, "I was so whipped… I mean, the last person I was that head-over-heels for was…" He snorts after a moment of thinking and shakes his head again, "Actually, you know what? The last person I was that head-over-heels for is you."
Castiel’s grin behind the camera is almost audible as he deadpans, “Your head was certainly over your heels last night.” Dean lets out a surprised laugh before grinning and mumbling, “Shut up… You loved it.” His boyfriend peeks his head out from behind the camera and shrugs, “True, but I love you more.”
Suddenly Dean can’t seem to stop smiling like an idiot, “Sap.”
A quick look at: smiting scenes in ancient Egyptian art. Why are they significant?
Both of the shown examples above are of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu. The first shows Ramesses smiting the enemies of Egypt before Amon-Re, who hands him a curved sword; the second image shows him smiting Canaanite enemies.
The smiting scene is a traditional symbol of kingship in ancient Egypt, which is datable back to the Predynastic period, and is symbolic of a victorious king. These scenes include the king raising a weapon over the head of an enemy (or a large groups of them as shown in the first photo), ready to smite them. Their hair is often grabbed from above to hold them in place for their execution. These representations grew to also include lists of the conquered enemies, and reached their peak in the New Kingdom, where the inclusion of an anthropomorphic deity became standard (photo one).
These scenes reinforced the king’s control over chaos, symbolically representing the bringing of justice (maat) to the defeated, chaotic enemy.
A few other examples:
- One of the earliest examples, the ivory label of King Den, which was found in his tomb in Abydos, and dates to 3000 BCE. Den is shown to be striking down an Asiatic tribesman, with an inscription reading: ”The first occasion of smiting the East”. This artifact is currently at the British Museum.
- Thutmose III at Karnak, presenting the Battle of Megiddo of the 15th century BCE. Here Thutmose III is shown to be smiting Canaanite enemies.
