You would think that maybe Tony would be genre-savvy with the whole renegade-destruction-robot-apocalypse thing, but no
This is what happens in AoU. I accept no other reality.
I don’t get how some people in the MCU Fandom claim that Steve must have a crap ton of money
I think the logic is “military back pay + 70 years interes + licensing his image for film/television/merch, as…
HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!!
NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE…
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.

also: heart attack symptoms for women/trans men/dfab people are often different than the ones listed here! it’s more common for them to have jaw, neck, arm, stomach, or back pain, and they tend to experience more of an uncomfortable squeezing or fullness in the chest rather than crushing pain. other more common symptoms include heart palpitations, fatigue, shortness of breath, sweating, and nausea. these symptoms are often overlooked by those experiencing a heart attack because they deviate so much from the more well-known symptoms, often leading them to delay treatment and potentially put their life at further risk. make sure you know these facts in case you or a loved one will need them in the future!
no but seriously
look at Steve’s face after Erskine says “good becomes great, bad becomes worse.”
THAT IS NOT THE FACE OF A MAN THINKING ABOUT ALL HIS GOOD QUALITIES
That is a man taking stock of every single moral deficiency in his character and immediately…
He’s thinking of every single time he’s failed to do the right thing, every time he’s walked away from a fight or a bully, every single time he’s skived off his homework or been mean or lazy or let someone else take the blame.
I’m kind of reminded of his talk with Bucky at the Stark Expo - they don’t discuss it in depth there, but Bucky calls Steve on his desire to prove himself by getting into the army, and Steve both acknowledges it and still stubborny goes forward with his attempt to enlist.
It’s interesting, because it’s a form of hubris or selfish pride, in that if you’re brutal about it, Steve-as-he-was would’ve been more useful to the war effort collecting scrap metal or doing pretty much anything else except for enlisting. It’s only that if he did manage to enlist, it would prove the world that he is a real man, like all other men. But at the same time he also knows perfectly well he has no real chance to get in; to Steve, the fact that he still keeps trying to enlist anyway is probably a kind of a release valve for all of the anger and frustration inside, and a way to fight back and reassure himself that he is a real person capable of making a difference, even if everybody else (as Steve believes) thinks he’s useless.
He must be aware of this at least on some level, so while Erskine’s experiment is also a tantalising possibility for Steve to become somebody who gets taken seriously and is finally able to do something real, in this scene he probably is not just questioning his own worth, but also his own motives.
Does he want this transformation for himself, or so that he could help other people?
And I think it’s Steve’s awareness that a part of him does want this for petty, personal reasons, the same part that liked the applause in the USO shows and getting flirted at by Pvt. Lorraine and actually winning a fight, that makes him so determined to use the terrible privilege he’s been granted for good. He’s always held himself up to absurdly high standards, and that’s not going to change after his body changes.
One of Steve’s good qualities is his self-awareness. Which admittedly gets overwhelmed by his ‘more mouth than sense’ and his ‘I AM RIGHT DAMMIT’ things occasionally. But he does try.
I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.
Reblogging hard for that last comment.
I WANTED TO SAY THIS BUT THEN SOMEONE ELSE DID and I’m damn proud.

Natasha was the only one in the avengers who couldn’t play an instrument. everyone had just assumed she would play one because of how she knew pretty much everything to do with anything. she had never really thought about learning one until Tony joking mentioned turning the avengers into a band. Nat knew the likely hood of that happening was slim at best but she still took some time out of every day she wasn’t on a mission to practice on the cheap keyboard she had bought from a thrift store. Clint was the first to find out but didn’t mention it until christmas when they all clubbed in to by her a small piano for her apartment. Nat turned out to be a very talented composer and has released several of her own compositions under an alias she refuses to tell the avengers. there’s over $1000 dollars riding on who finds her music first.

From Wikipedia: “SyFy announced that there would be a Sharknado 3 which will premiere sometime in 2015. No further details were announced but SyFy is saying that they are trying to make Sharknado an annual event.”
There is so much beauty in this world.
SyFy, I’ll accept cash or check.
