midgardian etiquette 101: when going to their homes, hang your coat first or in some cases, your mjolnir.
naw maybe it’s actually asgardian custom to check your weapons at the door
It was medieval custom to check your weapons at the door of the meadhall before greeting the king of the place you were going to. It was courteous and showed respect. You can see it in Beowulf.
what i don’t understand is how that hook can hold the mjolnir.
the hook is worthy
the hook is worthy
Peter Pan would disagree.
I’ve not read the comics but I always figured Mjolnir wasn’t heavy so much as stubborn, and if it decided it didn’t wanna move it just wouldn’t. It sits on Loki, rather than crushing him in Thor 1, and in Avengers it rests on the floor of the ship, and trying to pick it up Hulk starts breaking the floor with his weight, but Mjolnir doesn’t seem to weight anything at all (If it was as heavy as Hulk implied, it would drag the whole ship to the ground right?). Mjolnir isn’t heavy, cos its not going down, instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. Hence, the hook doesn’t hold it, it merely remains in place.
so what you’re trying to say is that Mjolnir is like a chicken head
instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it.
OK SO WHAT YOU ARE SAYING
IS THAT WHEN THIS HAMMER WAS FORGED IN THE HEART OF A STAR IT BECAME A FIXED QUANTUM POINT
AND THE UNIVERSE MOVES AROUND IT—AND THOR IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE PROPER RESONANCE TO INTERACT WITH IT ON A QUANTUM LEVEL
AND SO HE IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE LEVERAGE REQUIRED TO SHIFT THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE AROUND THE FIXED POINT THAT IS MJOLNIR
THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
((This tickles the physics nerd in me
But to put it in normal-speak:
Basically, when Thor grabs the thing and it looks like he moves the hammer around, he’s actually hauling EVERYTHING ELSE around Mjolnir.
Imagine pinning a piece of paper to a wall. The spot where the pin is remains still and you can only rotate or fold the rest of the paper around the pin. (although this comparison is limited to one plane, but you get the point)
The hook just happened to have been put opposite Mjolnir’s most extreme point on it’s string thingy so it looks like it’s “hanging” because there is tension between the loop of the rope and the handle.
Edit: also, here’s a mind-bender: When Mjolnir is spinning around it’s actually the rest of reality spinning around it in the opposite direction.
Remember all those tumbles and flips Thor does with it? It’s actually us getting spun around all over the place.
And when Thor “calls” it to him? He’s actually shifting space and probably time too in order to have himself and the world around him go to Mjolnir.))
