steve rogers is american the way ‘born in the usa’ is american: realistic and open-eyed and unflinching in the way he regards his country, aware of its flaws and willing to critique them, always on the side of the underdog and the left…
Astronaut readjusts to life back on Earth

HE GRABS THE CUP BUT THEN HE DROPS THE PEN 0.0003 SECONDS LATER
AND HE LOOKS UP AT THE CEILING INSTEAD OF AT THE GROUND WHEN HE CAN’T FIND THEM
I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING HE JUST DROPS IT
IT’S NOT FUNNY IT’S VERY LOGICAL THAT HE WOULD HAVE ADJUSTED TO LIVING LIFE WHILE HE WAS IN SPACE BECAUSE IT’S DIFFERENT FROM EARTH BUT I CAN’T FUCKING BREATHE
YES IT’S BACK ON MY DASH THIS IS MY FAVORITE VIDEO
everyone talks about steve rogers being a huge advocate for equality
but have you considered how viciously bucky barnes would fight for equal rights for everybody
You picked the wrong side, agent.
Depends on where you’re standing.
#no joke probably my favorite scene from this movie#that unnamed launch tech has no way to protect himself - this is runlow this is strike#he has no idea if he can depend on the people //around// him to protect him#but he still says no i’m not gonna do that#and he’s scared he’s so scared they all are#but shield isn’t some faceless shadowy organization (or //just// that)#shield is these people - these techs - these agents - sharon#they believe in something greater - not loyalty to captain america but to the ideal that he represents#a better world - the work they were doing (thought they were doing - //were// doing) despite hydra#and they’re gonna keep doing that - fighting for what is right standing up for what is right#and that starts right here with this one simple gigantic refusal#he stands up to the biggest toughest guy the one who could kill him easily and says no (silvertons)
I was almost in tears at the sequence where you juxtapose Cap talking about freedom, and the price you pay for it, while the loyal SHIELD agents (most of whom appear to be techs and administrators) try to delay the heavily armed, utterly ruthless STRIKE teams who’ve been coopted by HYDRA. Watching them give their lives to try to delay the launch, seeing the pilots mown down by the Winter Soldier before they can give Cap and Falcon art support, hearing that one middle aged, overweight guy shout “Don’t launch! Don’t launch!” as he runs toward a helicarrier despite the STRIKE team shooting him without a moment’s hesitation - it was one of the best moments in the film, and so utterly heartbreaking.
We’ll never know, but how much you want to bet that Steve learned the names of every single one of them and wrote their survivors a condolence letter? Or attended as many funerals as he could once he was out of the hospital? THESE were the heroes, the men and women who had nothing but their courage, and their love of freedom.

I’d reblog this on my other blog but people need to learn about this if they work in fast food and I have a lot of followers on my main blog.
DON’T FUCKING DO THIS, YOU CAN KILL SOMEONE WITH THIS.
seriously though, i’ve heard stories of people giving “skinny” people regular soda instead of diet… newsflash: high blood sugars make you lose weight. a skinny persom that asks for diet soda could very well be diabetic… and then if you give them regular soda, you could cause some serious damage, even comas or death. i don’t care how you feel towards a customer, GIVE THEM THE DRINK THEY ASKED FOR.
There is a coffee place near my home and they happens to serve sugar-free hot chocolate being a type one diabetic this is great because it has about half the amount of carbs. This one time I ordered it the employee rolled his eyes at me. When I got my drink I thought it tasted differently but I was with friends and wasn’t paying a ton of attention. Later my blood sugar was in the high 400s and we had no idea why, everything was in order. I had to stay up all night to get my blood sugars under control. I thought of the employee might have something to do with it. The next day I went back and the same guy was working, my mom confronted him and the manager and the guy admitted that he had given me a regular hot coco and had even put extra sugar in it. He tried to justify his actions because ” how was he supposed to know I was diabetic” and ”I thought just thought she was some chick trying to lose weight that she didn’t need to lose” He lost his job and I never went back there. But it put be in danger and if I hadn’t caught the high when I did I could of ended up in the hospital.
Something like that hot cocoa thing is ridiculously dangerous. With soda the taste is such a drastic difference that while it is still dangerous you have a much better chance of immediately realizing something is wrong.
So apparently in my sister’s class, there was a trans girl that had been on the cheerleading squad for a while. When she came out, the other girls on the squad made the agreement that whatever boy made fun of her would never get a date. And if you think that’s not the most metal girl alliance ever, you can sit down.
Wow, 500 notes
Girls protecting girls.
What Thyme Is It?
Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani
Hassani, a product designer from Afganistan, build (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.
Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afganistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.
Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.
In a world of overcomplicated solutions, we need more people who think “Wait, why don’t we just roll a giant freaking ball over it?”
this guy made a katamari for landmines
