March 10th 1876: First telephone conversation
On this day in 1876 the first telephone conversation took place between Alexander Graham Bell and his lab assistant Thomas Watson. Bell had recently secured the patent for his new invention - the telephone - and three days later succeeded in making a call. He summoned Watson from the next room thus making the first, albeit very brief, telephone call. Controversy surrounds the invention of the telephone, as there have been claims that the credit for the invention in fact rests with another inventor: Elisha Gray. Gray had also been working on a device for transmitting voice messages and both filed the patent the same day, leading to speculations about who got there first. However, whether erroneously or not, Bell is the one credited for the invention of the telephone, and he and Watson share the fame as the people who made the first telephone call.
"I then shouted into M [the mouthpiece] the following sentence: "Mr. Watson, come here — I want to see you." To my delight he came and declared that he had heard and understood what I said"

Well, not absolutely everyone, but Lionsgate seems to think that 80% vs. 20% means “deserves equal attention”
Which, frankly, makes me wonder about the numbers people at Lionsgate-why piss off so many of the franchise’s fans in order to bait people who probably wouldn’t be satisfied unless you change the outcome? And it’s not even as if they’re doing a lot to flesh out the character either, which also aggravates me. Like, show me why these people are even friends, you know? But fanon/fandom shouldn’t actually create a controversy as to what is canon, and the way Lionsgate approaches the material seems to wholly miss the point of why Katniss is conflicted in her feelings.
In a way, I kind of think that it’s also telling that a lot of the licensed CF merchandise focused on Katniss, Peeta, and Finnick: when non-Lionsgate companies had to put their money on the line, it’s not the love triangle that they chose to support.
Hairdresser: do you like it?
Me: yes thank you
*goes home and cries*
"Peeta was such a wimp"
"Gale was so much better for Katniss"
"Katniss didn’t love P-
real friendship is sending them a link to something terrible so you can both be traumatized at the same time
Do you have that one OTP where you love them so fucking much, that you just can’t, in all kinds of form, ship them with any other character and it hurts your soul just thinking of either one being apart or with another character?
i noticed that too!!!!! seems like everyone but lionsgate ships everlark.
Isn’t that the truth? I’ve just about resigned myself to the fact that, for the first teaser trailer for MJ1, my expression will just be an extended the-lord-is-testing-me.gif; having all of this Everlark stuff will ease the pain (a little).
the strange thing is that even by the time the 3rd and 4th twilight films rolled around, summit (lionsgate by proxy) had already resigned itself to the fact that bella chose edward and stopped playing up that triangle. i’m mystified as to why they continue to perpetuate this one, when there isn’t even any sort of real divide in the fanbase. at least jacob had people rooting for him. no one is rooting for gale to end up with katniss.
I mean even if there were a fandom divide, the books are written! There is an answer (
Everlark and Everlark babies 4 lyfe)! Even if they thought that they could get more tickets sold by pandering to peeps playing up the triangle, at some point they need to sell the canon ending or people are going to think that it’s a bait-and-switch. And it does seem like there’s a divide between the studio and the actual production team, especially with all of these featurettes where the Evelark lovefest is coupled with the theme of staying true to the books. Like with a lot of things Lionsgate-related, I really just wonder wtf is going on.
