Batman’s thought process in one sentence.

REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.

  1. Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
  2. Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
  3. Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
  4. Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and  you catch each other off guard.
  5. Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
  6. Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?

Aww!!!

this is nice

"The thing is, Steve and Bucky’s friendship wasn’t just a "they grew up so they’re as close as brothers," thing, it’s way more dynamic than that. Their relationship may be symbiotic, but it was never particularly balanced. Growing up, Steve was sickly and physically weak but had precisely the same personality as he does now: unendingly hopeful and moral, with no conception of backing down from a fight. Hence why he’s constantly getting beaten up, with Bucky having to wade in and finish those fights for him. Bucky is incredibly protective of him, which must have caused a fair amount of confusion when Steve turned into a near-indestructable supersoldier.

It’s a classic partnership between idealism (Steve) and pragmatic cynicism (Bucky), with Bucky playing the role of Steve’s protector and #1 fan. It takes the supersoldier serum for everyone else to realise what Bucky knew all along: that Steve is an inspirational figure, destined for great things. There’s this beautiful transitional moment in the first Cap movie when Steve has just rescued Bucky and the other soldiers from the Red Skull’s lab, and Bucky calls out for everyone to cheer for Captain America. This is basically the first time Steve has ever received outside recognition for being the person he is, and you can tell that while Bucky’s happy for him, he’s also a tiny bit resentful because he knows that Steve is no longer “his”. The tables have turned, and now Bucky is walking in Steve’s shadow, rather than the other way round.”

CA:TWS, as a film, was a fantastic exercise in putting genuinely decent and optimistic characters (except for Steve himself, at this point, but we can go into that later) up against a nearly ripped-from-the-headlines plot that distills a lot of this country’s cynicism and negativity, particularly in my age group. More than any of the other MCU films, I think this was aimed directly at us, the people in our late teens and twenties and early thirties who sometimes start crying on the toilet because not only will we never be able to stop working our terrible service-industry jobs, we will also never be able to make a safe and comfortable world for the kids who come after us, or take care of our parents when they need us. On top of all that, we’re in this lame dystopian surveillance society where the government hates us, military force has taken the place of diplomacy and stuff like drone warfare is something we’re supposed to just accept, like it’s not horrifying. It’s a story specifically for my generation to try and find some solidarity with.

Which is a pretty ballsy play for a movie with a main character that’s 95.

Blood is unsanitary? Are you fucking kidding me? Blood is fucking natural you fucking sexist pig.

real-justice-waluigi:

HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C can be passed around through blood and other physiological aspects of menstruation, including vaginal fluid and sweat.

Here, here, and here show this.

I should also mention that poop is natural and yet diseases like E.coli can be found in it. 
Read about that here and here

One more thing, you committed the the logical fallacy of appeal to nature.

You can read about that here and here

- peachy

-You ready to follow Captain America into the jaws of death?

-Hell, no. That little guy from Brooklyn who was too dumb not to run away from a fight. I’m following him.

Natasha in The Winter Soldier (spoilers)

I sent this over an email to a friend, and I wanted to post it somewhere more public as well. 

Natasha is an interesting animal because I don’t believe that most of what we see of her, ever, is actually her. She’s someone who inputs and reflects the behavior of those around her or gives those around her what she calculates they want from her: we see this in most of IM2, with Tony and then with Pepper. We see it in scenes in Avengers, in her intro scene, with Bruce, with Loki, though I think Avengers is maybe where we see the most of what is honestly Natasha in her interactions with Clint.

I’ve seen several people say that TWS is where we are “finally seeing the real Natasha” but I don’t know how much I buy that. She’s being what she thinks Steve needs her to be— jokey-flirtatious, and her brand of sarcasm in this movie is a bit drier, a bit more like Steve’s, than the sarcasm we saw from her when she was bantering with Clint in Avengers. I think she’s reacting to his signals.

Johansson has this one particular quirk she adds to Nat’s character that I particularly like, that I tend to think of as Natasha’s lizard look. You see it in every movie: a point where she goes entirely expressionless, blinks, and looks like she’s processing like a computer. It reminds me of those sort of blank looks lizards often have. Those are the moments when I think Natasha is not sure, is processing, making a decision about which Natasha she’s supposed to be. They’re incredibly vulnerable and fascinating, because they’re not always at the points where the character is otherwise behaving vulnerably: the very first one is in the scene where she piledrives Happy, when she’s introduced in IM2. She has a few in TWS, most notably just when she asks Steve if he trusts her, and again at the end when she’s disseminating the classified info. 

I think those moments are the times when we actually see the most of what Natasha, stripped away, is really like: those, and the scenes with Clint in Avengers, and maybe that breathless “Don’t do this to me, Nick.” She’s someone who functionally knows how to be a person, but it’s all layers of learned behavior. And I don’t think they’ve stripped those away from her yet in MCU.

This is really great meta!

I agree that I think Natasha is often presenting the face the characters around her want or need to see. I discussed briefly yesterday how some moments in Cap 2 irked me because they didn’t seem consistent with what we saw of Natasha in Avengers, especially her sense of humour, so I really like the idea that she picks up on cues from people and adjusts her behaviour accordingly. She asks Steve who he wants her to be, but in a sense she’s already giving him that. There are moments where we see what could be called the ‘real’ Natasha, there have to be, otherwise her whole arc feels hollow; but they’re all very subtle. I think that makes sense for Cap 2, because in the end it’s a solo movie, so a lot of what we see is from Steve’s POV.

That’s why the lack of a Black Widow movie is so frustrating (apart from the obvious “why is there no movie with a female lead WTF Marvel”). There are still so many layers to Natasha that we haven’t seen in the MCU. I’m sure we’ll see more in Avengers 2, but it would be amazing to devote two hours of movie to her character.

YES YES YES YES Y E S

When they talk about what a big role Natasha has in other Marvel movies, they’re talking about time on screen, not perspective. She’s certainly a key player in Cap2, but at the end of the day, we see her through Steve’s lens, and we see her being the person she thinks Steve needs her to be. We see Steve’s Natasha, rather than Natasha.

Honestly, I think that this is one of the things Marvel doesn’t realize in how important it is to have a Black Widow movie. The existing movies all have vastly different voices and circumstances, but they all come from the same place of privilege; every protagonist and point of view character for an individual-led Marvel film is a straight white cis man, and seeing from their vantage point is the default. It means there’s a lot we’re missing in understanding the experiences of any character who doesn’t fit that profile, and it’s something I’d love to see further explored in the MCU.
