Rhodey (possibly) canon
The one thing I think fanfic authors miss, is Rhodey went to MIT with Tony. His major was probably aerospace engineering, since many Air Force officer candidates major in this area. You know what another name for an aerospace engineer is? Rocket scientist.
Rhodey is a rocket scientist.
Rhodey is a rocket scientist, y’all. Treat him with the scientific respect he deserves.
Rhodey did indeed go to and graduate MIT for Aerospace Engineering in MCU canon. that is legit. He is a rocket scientist
tho, post MIT and probably during, his specialty became more weapons focused but no doubt he is quite knowledgeable in a lot of other related areas

shout out to posts that undermine organized labour by making it sound like everyone in a union has a ‘cushy desk job’ when the problem is actually that we’ve undercut collective bargaining rights so much as a society that workers who need them most have absolutely no recourse to unions.
Further shoutout to the people with “cushy desk jobs” who have to work on labor day anyway because in so many cases being salaried just means they get to demand weekends and holidays and overtime and as much of your time as they want without having to worry about compensating you extra for that time.

- Little boy: I will not hit the teacher with a light saber.

- Boy: No! I am Obi-Wan!
