A five year old at the gas station said he liked my “bat woman” tattoo excitedly. His father condescendingly asked how many I had. I told him I had 11. He scoffed and asked how waiting tables all my life sounded and I said, “it’s alright on the weekends, but throughout the week I’m your son’s teacher.” He walked out without another word.
wow toy story 3 did you have to be such a fucking disappointment
YouTube comments aren’t “just the Internet.” They’re not the product of a group of otherwise nice guys who suddenly become evil when they wear a veil of anonymity. YouTube comments are actually a nightmarish glimpse into the sexist attitudes that define the fabric of our own existence in the “real world,” a world that, like YouTube, is owned and dominated by men. The most terrifying gift that the Internet has given us is that it’s shown us how men honestly perceive the world: as a place where women exist exclusively for their sexual pleasure.
In the wake of VidCon, and as more and more women start speaking up about the harassment they face online, it’s time to start realizing that our narrative of progress is deeply flawed. Things aren’t getting better for women on the Internet; they’re deteriorating and ignoring the problem amounts to being complicit in it."

#this. moment. tho.#i love this moment so much because his rifle lingers - for a second longer than necessary - on steve’s head#just a fraction longer than plausibility or positioning#just for a moment you can almost see that flicker of his finger like he’s contemplating puling it a bit longer#what did zola do to him in the factory? what happened to that charming insouciant boy with the swagger in his step?#how does a man who’s just gone through a week’s torture walk thirty miles through rough terrain and pass physical for field work?#reading about sebstan planting the seeds for winter soldier in cap1 is so gratifying to me because there was always#something just a tad off about him after the rescue; something a shade darker and a bit shiftir so that even when he’s doing something#tacitly ~good~ there’s a strange underlying anger and reluctance (via ilvalentinos)`screencaps (based on this video) of Sebastian saying: I really liked that it mentioned that he was doing the dirty work for Captain America. Because that meant that he was fighting on these missions in a very different way. (…) I mean there was a part of him that was a stone cold killer, y’know. And I think that came from somewhere and I was just really interested to know where that came from. And I wanted to make sure that hopefully there’s a colour of that in him. (…) He loves Steve Rogers and Captain America, but at the same time, y’know…I mean, what’re you going to do? You’re just this guy that comes in this suit suddenly and things are just going to get better? Have you ever seen someone’s head blown off, you know what I mean? I think he’s very real about certain things.
#they literally rewrote the first film to make space for sebastian stan to start shading in the origins and context of winter soldier #bucky barnes was written and acted and intended to be the dirty abandoned brutal underbelly to cap’s shining ideal #from the very start #sebastian stan #that boy is a monster #winter soldier #the price of freedom is high (via okayophelia)
side note: theres only one thing that makes me all warm and fluffy inside about this character in the mcu - because everything else is tears, funnily enough. - and that’s the fact that he LOOKS like a bully. he’s big and he’s strong and he’s good looking and he’s good with girls and he holds his own in a fight and he adapts to killing pretty well. but. but his best friend is steve rogers, skinny asthmatic kid with a concave chest, and yes they grew up together and yes maybe if they didn’t bucky wouldn’t have been friends with him but but - so many times in our lives we abandon old friends because it’s easier, but the fact that he never leaves steve, that he follows this kid even when being strapped down to a table would have been able to get him some kind of leave. even after all that - he goes with steve to hydra base after hydra base to cover his back. steve rogers doesn’t like bullies. bucky barnes, despite appearances and despite the fact that he can be and might be, is not a bully because he chooses not to be.

According to his service number, 32 557 xxx, he was a drafted man from DE / NJ / NY. And that’s important because he didn’t choose to go to war, he was chosen. There’s an edge to him when he tells Steve he enlisted when you realize that 1) he lied and 2) he probably didn’t want to and never wanted to go. And you could make a strong case for the latter because he’s the one who rightfully points out to Steve that the back alley is a completely smaller beast than going to war.
Ironically, it’s the U.S. gov’t taking his choice and agency away that sets up the stage for Hydra taking it away even more horrifically. And the cycle comes full circle when Hydra infiltrates S.H.I.E.L.D. — the U.S. gov’t organization that Peggy Carter founded inspired by Captain America.

i think that this girl on okcupid that i was super into decided to not reply to my messages anymore because i said that i don’t really like the harry potter films?
Wait…. Do you not enjoy Harry potter in general or just the films
I love the bond that forms between students in an awful class
Encrypted Marauder’s Map
For my cryptology course final I made the Marauder’s Map. I used maze construct theory to design the interior, and the variations of the interior, then scrambled the different versions on folding tabs so that unless they are folded in precisely the correct sequence of left or right the map is confusing and useless. The sequence for reavealing the correct map is the binary code for a hash function of “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’.
hold on though my brain just pictured a bisexual Pakistani Captain America and in my head she has the cutest nose guys.

I have to add, this wasn’t just a case of a pretty woman got advanced on by a man she didn’t want. He wasn’t just an admirer. He was her student. She was a master at mathematics, astronomy, and philosophy. She had popular public lectures.
And she wasn’t just said to throw her menstrual rags at him. The story I read was that he admitted his admiration in the middle of one of her teachings, and she grabbed her menstrual rags right out from in between her legs, hurled it at him, and told him “This is what you really love, my young man, but you do not love beauty for its own sake.”
It wasn’t just an attempt to discourage him. It was teaching him a lesson, even when he was interrupting hers.
