    Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is okay. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.

    Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

     (via)

    No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

    1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

    2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

    3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

    Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

    so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

    Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.

    There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.

    Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.

    The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?

    Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

    Sometimes clever posts die a quiet death in the abyss of the unreblogged. Some clever posts get attention, get comments, get better. Then there’s this one which I’ve watched evolve into a thing of brilliance.

     Leota Toombs was an Imagineer and is also the face of both Madame Leota and Little Leota, at the Haunted Mansion attractions in Disneyland, WDW, and Tokyo Disneyland parks.

    Only her face was used for Madame Leota, the voice is that of Eleanor Audley. You will probably remember her best for her voice acting as Lady Tremaine and Maleficent . Leota’s actual voice can be heard calling out to exiting guests, “Hurry back! Hurry Back!”.

    Where there are wolves, there are ravens. Ravens follow wolves around a lot, mostly because they just seem to like them. They aren’t known to follow other predators and they prefer to eat with the wolves instead of alone. Source

    wait are you telling me that wolves keep ravens as pets

    cause this is the most goth thing ever since My Immortal

    It would be an easier way for the raven’s to get food. And I bet the wolf doesn’t mind the companionship either.

    it’s mutualism! Ravens circle ungulate herds and wolf packs, wolves see them, find the animal faster, kill the animal and open up the carcass(which ravens can’t peck through), and then the ravens eat and the nice juicy bits.

    oh, and the pet anology is back-assward. ravens play with wolves. and more importantly, wolf pups. you know how animals raised together from a young age are super tolerant of one another? ravens exploit that to get better access to carcasses. 

    yeah i was gonna say it sounds more like the ravens are keeping the wolves as pets

    This is an interesting case of human language parameters (or, anyway, English language parameters) influencing the tone of a neutral fact. The intimation of an owner/pet relationship is the result of a species who hasn’t been anywhere but top of the food chain in living memory, and for whom creatures of the wild have long since been tamed and house-broken.

    However, ~500,000 years ago, when early humans were first emerging from Africa, we developed a similar relationship with wolves. It’s theorized that humans and wolves, both being highly social pack hunters, noticed the similarity in their hunting styles and quickly learned the benefit of a creature on the hunt.

    This is one of my favorite images of prehistoric man, and one that doesn’t appear much in media- wolf teaching man, through action, of the habits and strategies necessary to take down the megafauna of the time. Man and wolf as equals in a world of giants, hesitantly friendly when time permitted. Before we were the masters of the world, we were just another animal. These sorts of mutualistic relationships are more common in nature than one might expect, but that’s entirely because we approach it from a human exceptionalist perspective.

    50 species of lizard and one species of snake reproduce through parthenogenesis (that’s the fancy word for producing offspring as a female without having sex).

    Except.

    Whiptails are stimulation ovulators. That is to say, they can’t ovulate without having sex.

    So not only do they are give birth through immaculate conception, they’re ALL LESBIANS.

    There are two kinds of parthenogenesis seen in reptiles. That used by whiptails and the other all female species is true cloning - the egg contains the female’s full genetic material).

    Other species including komodo dragons use another form of parthenogenesis where they actually fertilize themselves, with a haploid polar body used instead of a sperm. Because of the way reptile sex chromosomes work, this form of parthenogenesis can produce males as well as females - however, the females produced have weird sex chromosomes and can only lay other females. It’s used as a backup reproductive strategy if they can’t find a mate. This works because in reptiles, unlike mammals, its the males that have two sex chromosomes the same (ZZ) and the females different (ZW). Females produced by parthenogenesis are WW - and that’s what happened to the whiptails. They lost the Z chromosome and now are all WWs.

    IOW?

    Reptiles are fascinating.

    YOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOO

    So that means that bit I talked about on skype about lesbian dragons being able to reproduce in LotS has a basis!

    OMFG!

    He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”

    "Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”

    "He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”

    "It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”

    "If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”

    And, of course:

    "The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."

    the one that will always stay with me is “Arthur Dent was grappling with his consciousness the way one grapples with a lost bar of soap in the bath,” i feel like that was the first time i really understood what you could do with words.
