Columbus. Toledo. Findley. Those are just off the top of my head, in my hone state. Other US cities that spring to mind very quickly include Detroit, New York City, Pittsburgh, and Gettysburg. That’s without even branching out into smaller towns, never mind internationally, or looking anything up with any type of resource.
Just saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes with my parents and brother (he’s visiting, and really wanted to see it). I’m not really into the whole apocalypse movie genre thing in the first place, but I found it disappointing regardless. The acting was okay, but the plot only half made sense much of the time and didn’t really seem to be moving at the right pace (too fast in some spots, too slow in others). Most of the human characters were white men, and most of the ape characters were coded as if they were, too, which seems a little unnecessary. In general, it was at least 90% a mix of very bad writing and very good CGI. I guess you have to already have an interest in the series to really appreciate it, maybe? *shrugs* In any case, it seemed to desperately want to be this spectacular plot driven cinematic masterpiece, and I personally found it rather lacking. 3/10, would not rewatch without a significant bribe, but people who like the series or at least the genre might like it.
There’s really not a lot to explain?
If you’re asking me whether it has been explicitly stated in canon (like Wolverine, Loki and many others who are canonically bi) then no, it’s never been stated. But in the MCU, Steve Rogers flirts with all the people. He flirts with Sam, he flirts with Kate/Sharon. He regularly visits Peggy, whom he’s still so loyal to, despite how painful it must be for him to see her memory disintegrating in front of him,. He has this wonderful relationship with Natasha where there’s definitely mutual attraction which isn’t romantic, because they probably both know they would be a disaster.
Steve Rogers grew up broke and disabled in a gay neighborhood in Brooklyn during the great depression. He’s not naive and he’s not a blushing virgin. I’m going to hazard a guess that now, in the XXI century, he’s also slightly more comfortable with himself as opposed to in the late 30s/early40s. Even without rhapsodizing on his love for Bucky, which you can believe to be platonic or not
(it’s not)Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie definitely make some specific acting choices which are not at all subtle. The Russos framed Steve meeting Sam in the most classical 'meet-cute' scenario they could come up with. Same with the iconic ”I’m with you till the end of the line.” Not only that, but many reviewers (non-fandom reviewers, which shouldn’t matter but it does because it makes it mainstream) of CA: TWS have actually come out and said that The Winter Soldier is actually framed as the love interest for Steve Rogers.
Steve is bisexual. We’ve claimed him. He’s ours. The heterosexuals don’t get to have this one. He’s ourssss.
Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM
I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS
LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
HOLY SHIT BALLS GUYS
PEOPLE THIS IS IMPORTANT SIGNAL BOOST THE FUCK OUT OF THIS AND GET SHOPPING
Reblogging for future reference, because I enjoy cute panties and have lost a few nice ones to bloodstains over the years. I think I’m gonna buy a pair or two later this summer, once I have a few more paychecks in the bank and no longer am sharing a mailing address with my parents. o3o
A new “fetal harm” case could open door for women to be prosecuted for everything from miscarriage to abortion
OMG…this is really happening and the mother is a black teen.
but of COURSE the mother is a black teen.
BullshitAbsolute bullshit.belindapendragonhave you seen this?
Hey nikkisshadetree, I have heard of talk in the past about various jurisdictions in the country wanting to charge a mother for the death of her fetus/baby due to criminal negligence. I should have known that this test case would happen in Mississippi. But these kind of “fetal harm” laws are another smokescreen by the right to put more poor people and people of color in jail. I find it interesting how you can truly prosecute cases of this nature because it opens the floodgates of potential prosecution to all women who let’s say smoke, drink alcohol or eat sushi during the pregnancy causing the death of their fetus or if not the death, what if the baby survives with mental and/or physical disabilities, is the charge then attempted murder? Or what if it’s the baby’s father or a family member/friend of the pregnant woman gives her the cigarettes, alcohol, drugs or sushi and the fetus is harmed, are these people criminally part of a conspiracy or is the person giving the pregnant woman alcohol guilty of felony murder? Nikki girl I just can’t with these Southern United States…I wish they would all just secede and go away.
WHAT. THE. HELL?????
Oh my God. What the actual fuck?!?
World War II (WWII or WW2), also known as the Second World War, was a global war. It is generally considered to have lasted from 1939 to 1945, although some conflicts in Asia that are commonly viewed as becoming part of the world war had begun earlier than 1939….
Reblogging for writing reference. Also, if an additional resource regarding medicine of this era is desired, message me. I have a copy of the new edition of Pharmacy in World War II, which was previously out of print for several years, as well as a few other relevant sources, including some history articles which can be a bit difficult to come by if you don’t know where to look, and would be happy to discuss some key points on the subject with interested parties.
So I haven’t actually seen Winter Soldier yet, and a friend is claiming that there’s an off-hand comment made about Bucky having a wife. Something like him saying “You can always come stay with us, my wife loves cooking for you” to Steve. My extensive study of fan fiction…
Okay, I don’t remember the exact wording, but my memory of the scene in question is that Bucky heavily implies that he is living with his *parents* at the time of this scene, and that they are okay with Steve moving in with the whole damn Barnes family for the time being. But definitely at no point is a wife mentioned in the theatrical version of the film (and I cannot see this being changed in the DVD/blueray). Furthermore, Bucky is not married as of the time of shipping out, years later, either, when he and Steve take two young ladies on a double date to what appears to be the World’s Fair in the opening of CATFA (not saying that people didn’t occasionally divorce in those days, but his single and apparently quite popular with nice girls status implies support to this). In short, OP’s friend is either confused or trolling.
