    d’you think the avengers ever play a game where they try to push steve’s buttons and get him all riled up and patriotic?

    tony casually throws it into a conversation like “oh yeah I don’t vote” and steve trails off mid-sentence and gapes for a second before he starts in on the importance of the democratic process and how dangerous it can be if citizens give up their say in how the government is run and tony is trying so so hard to keep a straight face

    meanwhile bruce is standing in the background timing the speech with his watch because whoever gets the longest rant wins a little trophy that tony made. the current holder of the trophy is clint who managed to convince steve that he doesn’t pay taxes

This is what the cast of a Stonewall movie should look like, not what’s being cast.

These are just a few of the beautiful, incredible, unbelievably brave people who made our movement possible. Pay respect to the people who were involved in the Stonewall Riots by boycotting this planned whitewashed film about cis gay men and drag queens because it’s false and disrespectful to the trans women of color and the other extremely important marginalized groups that sparked the movement we have and benefit from today. Don’t allow this movie to further perpetuate the whitewashing of history and lies about who really was fighting in the Stonewall Riots.

I wasn’t aware there was going to be a film in 2016 about the Stonewall Riots.
I’m very upset that this won’t be a serious look at what happened. I’m upset that Marsha P. Johnson - my personal hero - will likely not be paid the time of day in this film.
So, I’m going to lay some facts down here for some people to pick up.
Marsh was a black trans drag queen, and it was she who had enough. She picked up the first brick and threw it, and incited the Riots. She was a fierce social activist, and a beacon of the time. She was murdered, and her body was thrown into the river. She was found floating and the police deemed it a “suicide”. Her murderer was never found.
See, this movie, could explore her. Her life, her tragedy and how really fucked up it was that this wonderful woman who started the gay revolution in America was done so wrong. It really upsets me that most LGBTQ people I know don’t even know her name. They don’t even know, what this woman did for them. What she started. What she had been fighting for all her life, in a more difficult time.
But this movie won’t explore that. While I respect Emmerich, this is just more erasure, and on such a devastating scale.
So, I want people to please go watch the documentaries “Before Stonewall” and “After Stonewall”, so you can understand what’s going on. You can also check out “Paris is Burning” which is a documentary about the underground ball culture.
Her name was Marsha P. Johnson. She was a black, trans, drag queen. She was murdered. She is my hero, because if not for her we would not have what we do today.

The Navy has figured out a way to convert water into fuel

In news that is sure to rock the fuel industry, the U.S. Navy has announced that they believe they have solved one of the world’s greatest scientific challenges: how to turn seawater into fuel. Last week, naval scientists successfully flew a small 2-stroke model airplane running on seawater-derived fuel, proving that engines can run on the energy source they’ve developed. Essentially the process extracts carbon dioxide and hydrogen from the water and recombines it into hydrocarbon chains that liquify via a metallic catalyst into a purely synthetic fuel source.

  10. Avenger Black Widow is one of the best bets, as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who has already proven herself on-screen, and with a spy skill set that can break superhero cinema out of the usual origin-story rut…But instead of being seen as powerful and dynamic characters who could lead their own films, a double standard is applied to superheroines. The men lead, and the women support, no matter how powerful their characters are. Marvel head Kevin Feige has actually repeatedly expressed happiness at how his company has handled female superheroes. He is perfectly happy to have the female characters support the men, rather than feel pressure over the company’s very recognizable exclusion of female stars: “I’m very proud of the way the Marvel movies handle the female characters […] as opposed to feeling the pressure of ‘When are you doing a female movie?’”

    Intentional or not, Feige’s words express a palpable disinterest in the female superheroes audiences clearly want to see. In the same interview, he blows off the idea of a Black Widow solo movie with that same old standby: “If we had a great idea, we’d do it.”

    The fact is that if Feige desired it, it would happen — and the Marvel head has a history of making his desires a reality. “It became a secret dream” of his “to have a second bite at the apple” when Hulk crashed and burned in 2003. In five short years, Bruce Banner was back for The Incredible Hulk — another film that missed the mark, before the character finally hit, four years later, when Mark Ruffalo took over in The Avengers. That time, Feige made it happen, and poor returns on Marvel’s investments didn’t stop him.

    one thing I find hilarious is when Shakespeare quotes are used out of context

    like, people are always saying “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them” as if it’s all deep and meaningful when actually it comes from a prank letter in Twelfth Night

    and “This above all: to thine own self be true” comes from Polonius in Hamlet wherein the joke is that he’s an old pompous dude giving a long and rambling speech full of contradictory pointless advice to his son

    “Brevity is the soul of wit” is another joke, because again, it’s made by Polonius who will just not shut up

    it’s “we are such stuff as dreams are made on not of “, as in, “such stuff as dreams are built on

    “wherefore art thou, Romeo” doesn’t mean “where are you, Romeo” it means “why the fuck are you called Romeo, shit, I wanted to bang you but I can’t because you’re a goddamn Montague”

    all these lines have acquired a kind of dignity in text that they never had in performance or are constantly misinterpreted

    It’s not necessarily bad but it is kind of funny, sometimes.
