One of the best scenes in the entire series/movies. His face. He is absolutely shocked and horrified that she would believe and say such a thing. You could hear his heart break.

She’s so beautiful…its impossible. wherehaveallthescullysgone

absolutely impossible…and yet she exists….

You know, I think I finally understand why I adore this relationship so much.

Let’s face it, this relationship is WEIRD when you compare it with other mainstream relationships on the big and small screen. They resist their attraction, they resist the idea that they need each other, they resist the growing love between them…Practically any other show would have them rolling in the sheets in the third season. I mean, SEVEN SEASONS, people. It took seven seasons for these two to share a very sweet and very chaste kiss.

I’ve heard it mentioned that Mulder and Scully have yet to exchange a simple “I love you” (at least, once that is to be believed, lol) between them—but I just recently realized that exchanges like the one above are 100000X better than any three-word sentence. “I need you”, “You saved me”, “I had the strength of your beliefs”, “I wouldn’t change a day”…ANY ONE OF THOSE SENTENCES AND MORE say so much more than a conventional confession of love.

I’ll get off my soap box now, but I just had to say it—this relationship is so beautiful because of the strength of its core, and I can never get over that.

This Icelandic police force has the most adorable Instagram account 

Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.

There’s more where those came from | Follow micdotcom

For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.

Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]

Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.
