Because of the weight of the ends of the forks, and how they’re distributed behind the penny (closer to the glass), the center of gravity of the whole system is actually shifted quite significantly. If I’m right, it would actually have to be right where the penny meets the glass. This mean, in a sense, all the “weight” of the system of the forks and penny is resting right on that point, rather than out in the air, so if you balance it, it’ll be stable on the glass.
SCIENCE.

Ladies and gentlemen: the REAL Falcon

It is important to note Captain America is also in this film. 

don’t forget legendary hero star lord

How big a leap is it for you to be in a big Marvel movie like Captain America? 

For any actor, it’s huge and you really get an understanding of that when you see guys like [Robert] Redford show up to do a role. What’s happening now is I think since all the Marvel movies had such a wide range of viewers globally that you’d be crazy not to want to be involved on some level with the Marvel people. They do it like nobody else. For me it’s a great opportunity because it’s an international film. It just raises your exposure that much more.

Can we just talk about Gabe Jones for a second?

figmentedfollies:

Okay, so while I was talking about the awesomeness of Antoine Tripplet and the kind of family he came from versus Grant Ward and his world a thought occurred to me. Gabe Jones. Now, admittedly I love me some Steve. I love me some Bucky. But the rest of Commandos were just sort of there for me. Then, of course, Captain America: the Winter Soldier and Agents of Shield come along and give me a reason to care.

Did you know that he is an alumnus of Howard University? Lets just think about that for a moment. He attended and graduated from college prior to the War. In 1937, only about 15% of 18- to 20-year-olds attended a post secondary institution. Most of them came directly out of high school and more than likely from the wealthier classes in the United States. Now, the source I took the quote from didn’t link his sources and didn’t indicate if the number he was citing was all of the United States, or if it just included White Anglo-Saxon Protestant Males. For the sake of argument lets just say 15% includes ALL 18-to 20-year-olds. The statistic is probably lower for African-Americans.

So lets consider Gabe Jones again. Not only he ahead of 85% of those his age, he is also a prisoner of HYDRA, a Nazi offshoot. The Germans were not as harsh in their treatment towards blacks during the War like they were towards Jews, Gypsies, Slavic peoples, and homosexuals, but they were still seen as inferior. (Utterly shoved in their face as wrong by Jesse Owens, by the way, in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.) He likely wasn’t part of the 107th because the armed forces weren’t integrated during the War. It is entirely possible he was part of another unit that had been captured, experimented on, and ultimately mostly massacred.

I’m not saying Gabe Jones has a variant of the super soldier serum in him, but he’s certainly a survivor. And awesome. Clearly it’s something his grandson inherited.

Hopefully we’ll see him in Agent Carter.

Friendly reminder that Bucky doesn’t have to “redeem himself.” Nobody has to redeem themselves for something that was done beyond their consent or capacity to control.

Bucky has to reclaim himself.

"Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched."

Literally the most important thing you will read today.

 How many times do I have to fucking debunk this? Because it’s seriously getting on my nerves. The word ‘virgin’ comes from the Latin word ‘Virgo’ which means maiden, pure, and sexually intact women. Romans used the term virgo to describe sexually intact women— it was not the Christians who came in and ~ruined~ everything like so many people seem to think they did (there are a lot of issues with Christianity and sexuality but this is not one of them).

I am only going to talk about the Roman side of this because that is the only one I feel comfortable speaking about, but virginity and chastity was important to the Romans. We can see how important it was when we look at the Vestal Virgins (Vestales in Latin). These were women who were put in to service of the goddess Vesta at a young age. They were to look after the ‘heart’ of Rome, which was a large fire that had to continually burn to keep the city safe and intact. These women were to remain virgins during their entire service, much like priests in the Catholic church. If a woman were to be found having lost her virginity while a Vestal Virgin, it was a huge deal to the Roman city. The very safety and sanctity of the city was in peril. These women were seen as the daughters of the state, and to have sex with one of them as a Roman citizen was seen as incest. A vestal virgin who had sex and was found guilty of it was buried in the walls of Rome to die of starvation. The man was killed. When there were issues with Rome, people often blamed the vestal virgin of losing her virginity. She acted as a scape goat.

 So can we please just stop with this whole ‘Christianity is the one that cared about virginity and ruined it for every other women’ because that is not the fucking case. Rome cared about female virginity, the Greeks cared about female virginity. And I am quite certain other cultures during this time did as well.

I PHYSICALLY CAN’T NOT REBLOG THIS WHEN IT COMES UP ON MY DASH
IT’S TOO COOL

It’s called Winterguard. It’s a sport. Those girls are marching band color-guard girls during the summer touring season, and during the winter they compete against other color-guard teams to music. Costumes, props, mats, everything has to be carried onto the gym floor and then taken back away and counts as part of your performance time. 
So when Family Guy or other popular media makes fun of color-guard girls, it pisses me off. We are not rejected cheerleaders. We are what you see above. We kick ass. We spin rifles and flags and sabers. 

ok that’s pretty badass.

Voice Actors and Actresses from Avatar The Last Airbender who came back with new characters in The Legend of Korra.

What a cool post! Once again, the hardest working fans in the business. Also, as illustrated by these graphics, if you hear a voice on ATLA/LOK there is a strong chance it was performed by Grey DeLisle. Although Dee Bradley Baker might have more screen time due to all the animal chirps and grumbles. Either way, Grey and Dee could easily voice an entire series together—just the two of them covering all the characters—and the audience would be none the wiser without checking the credits.
