Rhodey (possibly) canon

yourtessthings:

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

Did you overdo it last night? Well, Adam Rogers is here to tell you that most of what you know about hangovers is a myth:

"The famous one is probably dehydration. Everyone will tell you, "Oh it’s because alcohol dehydrates you and that’s what’s causing the hangover."… [So you’re told to] alternate [between water and alcohol], or have a big glass of water before you go to bed, and some of that comes from the fact that you do get dehydrated. But, in fact, the dehydration does not seem to be what’s causing the hangover. You can fix the dehydration — and you’re still hung over.
[Also,] it’s probably not the case that it’s blood sugar that’s causing the hangover. When you drink, your blood sugar levels are affected. But by the time you’re hung over, your blood sugar levels are back to normal.
There’s that thing about mixing your drinks — drinking beer and then drinking wine, right? Again, no, you can do the study where you can have somebody drinking the same drink and getting to the same blood alcohol level and somebody drinking different drinks and getting to the same blood alcohol and they both get the same hangover, they both report the same symptoms.”

Rogers’ book is called Proof: The Science of Booze.

Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?

Absolutely.

And does that suck?

Absolutely.

But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.

And that’s not the same for fat folk.

When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.

And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.

That’s thin privilege.

I always wanted the reboot of Ghostbusters to be four girl-ghostbusters. Like, four normal, plucky women living in New York City searching for Mr. Right and trying to find jobs — but who also bust ghosts. I’m not an idiot, though. I know the demographic for Ghostbusters is teenage boys, and I know they would kill themselves if two ghostbusters had a makeover at Sephora. I just have always wanted to see a cool girl having her first kiss with a guy she’s had a crush on, and then have to excuse herself to go trap the pissed-off ghosts of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire or something. In my imagination, I am, of course, one of the ghostbusters, with the likes of say, Emily Blunt, Taraji Henson, and Natalie Portman. Even if I’m not the ringleader, I’m definitely the one who gets to say “I ain’t afraid a no ghost.” At least the first time.

shout out to minimum wage workers have to work on labor day so folks with cushy desk jobs can have the day off.

galacticdrift:

thischarmingand:

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.

"It says ‘in god we trust’ on our money. It says ‘in god we trust’ above the judges bench in a court room. In a court of law, where you have to put your hand on a bible, the christian bible. It’s not my bible. I mean, if I tell the truth it’s because I tell the truth. Not because I put my hand on a book and made a wish. That’s fucking crazy"  (x

  • Lady on the bus next to me: Tell me again- what are you not going to do in daycare today?
  • Little boy: I will not hit the teacher with a light saber.
  • Lady: And why are you not going to hit her with a light saber?
  • Boy: It is my toy, and my choice, but if I hit her with the light saber, I'm acting like a Sith.
  • Lady: Do you want to be a Sith?
  • Boy: No! I am Obi-Wan!
