This is the rape joke:
My best friend was four years old the first time his father came into his room at midnight and tore out his throat. He still has days when I cannot hold him because the memory of a bleeding trachea haunts his doorway. He has not been home for the holidays in many years, but – even now – hands are seen as weapons.

This is the rape joke:
I have been told by more than twenty people that they have been raped. To all of them, I asked where the rapist was. From none of them, I heard ‘jail.’

This is the rape joke:
Once my brother told me that I was so ugly, I would be a virgin forever. Unless someone raped me. But even they wouldn’t come back for seconds.

This is the rape joke:
I believed him.

This is the rape joke:
I now look at every woman on the street and wonder if the space between her legs is a crime scene, surrounded by ripped caution tape. The statistics tell me that this is so common that I will never be in a room that does not contain a survivor. Not even if I am in that room alone.

This is the rape joke:
I was thirteen years old, and he was supposed to be just a friend.

This is the rape joke:
When his older brother came home, the boy pulled away. He wiped the tears from my face and said ‘we should do this again some time.’

This is the rape joke:
When I finally told my parents, they asked what I had been wearing.

This is the rape joke:
I had been wearing my innocence. My trust. I had worn the love I held for humanity and expected to be treated well. I had never been taught that I would be that girl, the one who keeps a mine of secrets between her legs – that girl was the slut. I wasn’t supposed to be breakable.
What had I been wearing? I wore the rape joke, then I became it.

you can put this device on any surface and it will actually type. like. this is a hologram. a HOLOGRAM. I CAN TYPE WITH A HOLOGRAM NOW.

its sold by Brookstone and fucking damn it is the most fascinating thing i have seen in my life so far holy god

Wait wait wait is this like a you hook it up to a computer and type on the light and then words?

yup. simple bluetooth hookup and boom. you’re done. you can now type on your desk with a hologram to send texts, make notes, do literally anything a keyboard can do.

Woah. Woah. WOAH

It’s sold by ThinkGeek too! But it is quite expensive

every day we get closer to Tony Stark

I was looking for a Tony Stark comment and I was not disappointed.

who decided being gay wasn’t manly? gay sex is technically twice as manly, you are literally doubling the amount of men in it

Though Mean Girls was rated PG-13 for “sexual content, language, and some teen partying,” that was a rating Paramount had to fight for, says Waters. “We had lots of battles with the ratings board on the movie. There was the line, ‘Amber D’Lessio gave a blow job to a hot dog,’ which eventually became ‘Amber D’Lessio made out with a hot dog.’ Which is somehow weirder! That’s the thing we found: When you’re trying to make a joke obey the rules and not use any bad words, it can actually become seamier, even.” Still, there were some things that Waters simply refused to change. “The line in the sand that I drew was the joke about the wide-set vagina. The ratings board said, ‘We can’t give you a PG-13 unless you cut that line.’ We ended up playing the card that the ratings board was sexist, because Anchorman had just come out, and Ron Burgundy had an erection in one scene, and that was PG-13. We told them, ‘You’re only saying this because it’s a girl, and she’s talking about a part of her anatomy. There’s no sexual context whatsoever, and to say this is restrictive to an audience of girls is demeaning to all women.’ And they eventually had to back down.”

#can you imagine if we left these 4 guys alone in the top floor of stark tower for like a month #or even just a week #SHIT WOULD GET DONE #we’d probably have interstellar travel in 3 days

i’m not a science expert. i’m not even a science novice. but that’s so interesting that these four would come up with interstellar travel when none of the 4 above are qualified as far as we know? reed richards in the mcu is just listed as a physicist, peter parker could only be linked with engineering + genetics, tony’s engineering, bruce banner is physicist in the 616 but i believe just radiology in the mcu.

know who IS an astrophysicist though?

know who has actually manipulated travel between realms? 

jane foster!

It really depends on what kind of interstellar travel we’re looking at. Combined, Stark, Banner, Richards, and Parker could build a conventional spacecraft, albeit one likely run on repulsor technology. Further, with Banner and Parker’s understanding of radiology and genetics, it is likely that they could derive a way to biologically mitigate the hazards of space travel: the degeneration of the body due to microgravity as well as the effects of stellar radiation on the human body. Their combined expertise, both demonstrated and mentioned, makes this a fairly simple task for them.

If we’re talking “qualifications” for constructing something capable of interstellar travel, Stark and Richards alone could probably design and construct a spacecraft, given their demonstrated levels of technical expertise. Stark’s Mark 2 actually broke the SR-71’s flight ceiling, and likely would have kept going were it not for that “icing problem.”

Now let’s start thinking with wormholes.

Jane Foster is an astrophysicist, specifically one concerned with wormholes, quantum mechanics, and the related forces that would be necessary to understand something like the Bifrost. Hence, if we’re looking at the generation of wormholes to travel through space, Jane Foster is probably the one that we want to call. As the above post correctly notes, Foster not only understands, but has modified technology intended to stabilize astrophysical phenomena to manipulate the phenomena as was seen with the Convergence. Further, she has been shown to make intuitive leaps that allow her to correctly deduce the operation of advanced technology merely by observation. That being said, it would not be too far a leap to assume that Jane Foster, given the proper materials and time, could build an equivalent to the Bifrost, eliminating the need for a spacecraft altogether.

Jane’s status as an astrophysicist matters in this context because she’s been demonstrated (at least in the MCU) to be thoroughly interested in the kind of astrophysical phenomena that would eliminate the need for conventional space travel. The other four men are skilled engineers, physicists, and geneticists: they’re the people we want to consult when we want to push NASA beyond chemical rockets. Jane Foster wouldn’t be interested in something as mundane as building a starship for interstellar travel; she’d be interested in the manipulation of the fabric of space in order to make starships irrelevant altogether. Even if she was going going to contribute to an interstellar flight project, Foster’s expertise is the kind we want to consult if we wanted to, say, build a warp drive.

The bottom line here is, if you want a spaceship, or to expand on conventional modes of interstellar travel, call those four men.

If you want to rip open a hole in spacetime and travel the nine realms in pillars of rainbow light, call Jane Foster.

Hades speaks to me on a spiritual level

why does tumblr always relate to the satan of every fandom

Because it’s easier to identify with a flawed character then some kind of ultra human the hero normally is portrayed as.

Possibly also because Satan figures in media typically live in dark holes in the ground, spend most of their time laughing at others’ misfortunes, and communicate primarily by means of passive-aggressive snark.

be excellent to each other
I was floating above my bed like a body in a river, in a car. And the only sound in my head was a dying cricket, in a jar. And I saw little beams of light come into the bedroom from underneath the door, and they crawled under my sheets and they came out of every single pore
