Here’s the deleted HIMYM alternate ending, uploaded it as a help for those who couldn’t watch it before it got deleted.

THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND A PERFECT ENDING TO A LOVE STORY.

According to the creators, they made this ending and then decided to go with their original plan.

I call bull and crap.

I have a hunch that when they saw the giant shitstorm on twitter and tumblr they all did a collective shout. “To the editing room!” and pieced this together in a last ditch effort to appease the 90% of the fan base they managed to piss off in their final episode.

This is a beautiful ending, but honestly it still pisses me off that we didn’t get this. Instead we got that piece of crap that basically proved Ted never loved his wife, he only wanted her uterus, and that in the nine years we all watched them, none of the characters changed at all.

Sad. That’s what this ending makes me feel. Sad. Cheated and robbed because we SHOULD have had this BEFORE. We shouldn’t have had this tacked onto the Series Box Set as a consolation prize. 

I still haven’t been able to watch a single episode of HIMYM because every time I hear Grown Up Ted start to tell his kids a story I feel like shouting “You’re a big fat liar!”

I can’t watch the reruns anymore too.

I’m like why are you wasting your time telling your kids how many women you banged before their mother who died of cancer?

You could have taken that time to tell stories about her instead.

This is the only ending I’ll acknowledge. The finale does not exist to me. 

With this, my soul is healed.

Egyptian blue — a bright blue crystalline substance — is believed to be the first unnatural pigment in human history. Ancient Egyptians used a rare mineral, cuprorivaite, as inspiration for the color. Cuprorivaite was so rare searching and mining for it was impossible. Instead, using advanced chemistry for the time, Egyptians manufactured the color. It was made by mixing calcium compound (typically calcium carbonate), a copper-containing compound (metal filings or malachite), silica sand and soda or potash as a flux, then heating to between 850-950 C.

Egyptian blue was widely used in ancient times as a pigment in painting, such as in wall paintings, tombs and mummies’ coffins, and as a ceramic glaze known as Egyptian faience.  Its use spread throughout Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and the far reaches of the Roman Empire. It was often used as a substitute for lapis lazuli, an extremely expensive and rare mineral sourced in Afghanistan. After the decline of the Roman Empire, though, Egyptian Blue quickly disappeared from use.
