In 1986, the United Way attempted to break the world record for balloon launches, by releasing 1.5 million balloons, which resulted in two deaths, millions in lawsuits, and a devastating environmental impact.
this literally sums up America
I have to wonder how 2 people died from this? Suffocated by Ballon?
Anyone notice that Tony has plans to build each Avenger their own floor at Stark Tower? He picks Captain America’s first.
I HAD NO IDEA THAT WAS WHAT HE WAS DOING. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST REBUILDING. NOT PLOTTING EVERYONE’S APARTMENTS~ IN HIS TOWER. OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD.
okay this is AWESOME, who is going to write the Tony Stark Interior Designer AU please
"I’m thinking a theme of muted sepia and cream, with dark blue notes — relaxing, yet masculine," Tony said. "What do you think?"
"Uh," Steve said. "Can I have a firm mattress?"
"Four-thousand springs Duxiana, buddy, nothing but the best for my team," Tony said.
"…is that a yes or a no?" Steve said.
"Okay, okay, buddy, I think you’re going a little overboard with the red. I think we can tone down the silver, too. What about, like, a nice pale gold? With like, shades of dark brown-green? Or is that too Loki…"
"C’mon, Thor, gimme something to work with here. What kind of stand do you need for the hammer?"
"So I’m thinking lots of green and purple-"
"I’m kidding! What about pale blue? You know, those weird unnatural eggshell things. That’s a nice, calming colour. And like, a bit of pale yellow, too."
"I thought you wanted me to "embrace the beast" or whatever-"
"Not in my tower. Do not wreck my tower."
"So did you guys want like a double room, or-"
”I will rip your face off-“
"Alright, Blackhawk! Chill! I’m still thinking joined - hey! That record player actually cost stuff, you know?! You can’t just be tossing - and there’s my fridge. That’s heavy, you know. My mini-fridge is heavy - stop it!"
Guys, hey, guys. Do you remember that time that Coulson called Natasha and she ended up forming the Avengers? Remember how she did that by digging up Bruce Banner and introducing Steve to him then was the voice of reason when Tony and Steve were bickering and then how she brought Clint back from being mind controlled so that they can be a team? Remember that? Remember how the Black Widow out smarted a god? Remember that time she kept her shit together when the Hulk attacked her, even though she was really scared? Remember when she knocked an alien off his flying scooter and figured out how to drive it despite it being extrateresstrial tech, then got her ass up to the top of Stark Tower, found Loki’s staff and saved the world from being invaded by turning off the machine?
Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?
Anyone else remember that? I sure do.
#and remember how they didn’t sexualize her #remember how she was independent and didn’t need a male crutch #remember how when loki implied that she needed a man she completely tore him down #remember how natasha romanov doesn’t take shit from nobody #especially not a man
and yet all they asked scarlet was how difficult was it to get in her suit
I am SICK and TIRED of people objecting to seeing women using their breasts for what they are actually for. BREASTFEEDING IS NOT VULGAR OR OBSCENE.
I support breastfeeding all the way, even if it is in public.
And the award winning one:
Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.
WHY IS THIS NOT HAPPENING?!
i love people responding to their pets’ noises with ‘i know’
women who had period cramps before pain killers were invented were metal as fuck let’s give them a standing ovation
A round of menopause.
It was a difficult period of history for everyone
Can we take a moment
The founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, four of the greatest wizards and witches of all time …
… and they decided to have a school song that goes like,"Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy warty Hogwarts…"
I am now picturing Helga, Rowena, Salazar, and Godric all sitting around a table going “well, fuck, what rhymes with hogwarts”
