Because I’m tired of the “Steve sucks at modern technology” trope.  He was picking up and using HYDRA tech that was powered by the tesseract in WWII. And user interfaces were pretty un-intuitive back then — knobs labeled in German or French, most likely.  And think about the number of dials and thingamabobs on an airplane control panel!  Yes, he’s a man out of time, but it’s probably the social stuff that’s much harder to adjust to.  (You can tell he’s recently-thawed because he still insists on wearing at least a button-down shirt and suspenders when out in public.)

THIS IS AMAZING!!!!

Hey friends.

Just a request on behalf of us sp0iler-free folk:

If it involves cast members on set and/or in costume, we would REALLY REALLY appreciate it if you tagged it as sp0ilers. Even if no one is discussing actual episode/plot/song content.

I know that, if you are someone who enjoys sp0ilers, this may seem silly to you. But for those of us who stay away, it sure would mean a lot to us.

This hiatus has been brutally long and so many of you have been awesome about tagging and we appreciate it. But please don’t forget that, just because you’ve known about it for months, doesn’t mean that “everyone” knows. If it has anything at all to do with content that has not yet aired, please label it as a sp0iler. I would rather risk missing something benign than see something I can’t un-see.

Thanks!

that awkward moment when you unfollow someone you enjoy following because you can’t think of a polite and tactful way to say their (perfectly valid) opinion posts on the definition of asexuality make you want to cry

i’m not one to attempt to inhibit or impose myself upon he natural development and growth of memes on this website but i feel like there’s a very thin line that using ‘spiders georg’ for social commentary very very nearly crosses 

"social issues are best discussed via memes and memetic discussion" factoid actualy just statistical error. social issues are best discussed via nuanced conversation. Feminist Frank, who lives on Buzzfeed & uses the style and diction of cat callers to display feminist messages, is an outlier adn should not have been counted

“Romeo can’t really be blamed for Ophelia’s death.”
-

Senior English major on a Shakespeare final. (via minininny)

WELL THEY’RE NOT WRONG

——

How about this, though?

[Editorial Note: This “theory” depends on believing the Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet take place contemporaneously. So, for the sake of argument, let’s all agree that the events of both plays occur in the Spring of 1517 (chosen because of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, and the Reformational threads that run through Hamlet).]

See, in the Second Quarto and First Folio versions of Romeo and Juliet, a[n extremely minor] character appears with Romeo, Mercutio, and Benvolio at the Capulet’s Party (where, if you recall, Romeo meets Juliet for the first time).

Like Hamlet's Horatio, this Horatio is full of well-worded philosophical advice. He tells Romeo “And to sink in it should you burden love, too great oppression for a tender thing.”

Fig. 1 - Second Quarto Printing

Fig. 2 - First Folio Printing

[The American Shakespeare Center’s Education Blog discusses the likely “real” reasons for Horatio’s presence]

Let’s imagine that Horatio has travelled down from Wittenberg (about 540 miles) to Verona for his Spring Break. He hears about some guys who like to party (because, let’s be honest, besides getting stabbed, partying is Mercutio’s main thing). So, he ends up crashing the Capulet’s ball with them.

He is then on the sidelines as Romeo and Juliet fall in love, Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo kills Tybalt, Romeo gets banished, and both lovers are found dead in Juliet’s tomb.

This tragedy fresh in his mind, he returns to Wittenberg at the end of what has turned out to be a decidedly un-radical Spring Break and discovers that his bestie Prince Hamlet is leaving for Elsinore Castle because he’s just gotten news that his father, the King, is dead.

On the trip up (another ~375 miles), Horatio recounts the tragic romance he just witnessed in Verona. He advises (as he is wont to do) Hamlet not to mix love and revenge.

Hamlet takes Horatio’s advice to heart, breaking up with Ophelia so that he can focus is energy on discovering and punishing his father’s killer:

HAMLETAy, truly; for the power of beauty will soonertransform honesty from what it is to a bawd than theforce of honesty can translate beauty into hislikeness: this was sometime a paradox, but now thetime gives it proof. I did love you once.

OPHELIA

Indeed, my lord, you made me believe so.

HAMLET

You should not have believed me; for virtue cannotso inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it: I loved you not.

Ophelia - burdened by the perceived loss of Hamlet’s love and his murder of her father - goes mad and drowns herself.

You see, if Romeo had waited literally a minute and thirty seconds longer (31 iambic pentametrical lines) - he, Juliet, Ophelia (and possibly the rest of the Hamlet characters) would have made it.

Bisexual men are 50 percent more likely to live in poverty than gay men

Bisexual women are more than twice as likely to live in poverty as lesbians

Bisexual men and women are at least one-third less likely to disclose their sexual identity to their doctors than gays or lesbians

In comparison with lesbians and gays, bisexuals have a higher lifetime prevalence of sexual victimization.

Forty percent of LGBT people of color identify as bisexual

Bisexual women are almost six times more likely than heterosexual women to have seriously considered suicide, and four times more likely than lesbians

Bisexual men are almost seven times more likely than heterosexual men to have seriously considered suicide, and over four times more likely than gay men

Bisexual employees are eight times as likely to be in the closet compared to lesbian and gay counterparts

Fifty-five percent of bisexual employees are not out to anyone at work

From 2008 to 2012, only $5,000 in grants were awarded to bi-specific projects or bisexual organizations.

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

Don’t ever feel offended if I don’t answer your asks or anons or memes. I’m not ignoring you. I would never ignore anybody on purpose. Either tumblr ate them or I had every intention to and I just forgot. 

So this is basically a reminder that I’m human and a terrible one at that so don’t hate me for my flaws because I have a lot of them.

Me: Hey, cool, this historical figure seems to have swung both ways
Homophobic Historian: THEY WERE STRAIGHT OMFG STOP READING THINGS INTO IT
Gay Historian: SO WHAT IF THEY WERE MARRIED SIX TIMES THEY WERE GAY GAY GAY
Me: But bisexuality exists and isn't that the most sensible thing to assume if we have actual evidence of them having had both male and female lovers?
Homophobic historian: THEY WERE CONFUSED AND IT WAS JUST A PHASE
Gay Historian: LA LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY
Me: But Anaïs just wrote about how she wanted to faceplant in this woman's boobs, and Byron jumped from this chick's bed into this boy's pants and then this Mercury guy even self-identified as bisexual--
Homophobic Historian: LIES AND SLANDER
Gay Historian: GAY
Me: For fuck's sake

so i feel not so great and know that it will just get worse if i don’t actually find and take some midol before the badness really hits, but i can’t find any and feel tired and achy enough that the thought of going to the store seems highly undesirable
