anonymous asked:

Did Bucky really train Natasha as a child in the Red Room? Is their relationship bad because they were brainwashed and couldn't consent?

Short answer: No and no.

Long answer: In the comic books (also known as the MU or as Earth-616), Natasha was born in either 1927 or 1928, making her only 2-3 years younger than Bucky, who was born in 1925.

Black Widow: Deadly Origin #1

Captain America #50

So when they trained together in the Red Room in 1956/1957, Natasha was 29 years old. This is Natasha when they trained together - not a child, but a full-grown adult woman:

Captain America & Bucky #624

As to your second question, that has been a long-running lie turned fandom myth that is based on a deliberate and purposefully misreading of the text. Yes, Bucky and possibly Natasha had already undergone Comic Book Science™ brain tapering prior to the start of their unauthorized romantic relationship in the Red Room. 

But here’s the thing - they both knew that a romantic relationship would be unauthorized and forbidden by Department X and that if they were to engage in a romantic relationship with the other, they would both be severely punished for it. 

So despite knowing all of this, they both still decided it was worth risking it to be together:

Captain America #27

Captain America & Bucky #624

The Winter Soldier even went as far as lying to his handler when directly confronted about the relationship:

Captain America & Bucky #624

They both chose to be in that relationship. The concern trolls that try to claim otherwise do so by ignoring the fact that they both actively made a choice here and that choice was each other. And since most of those concern trolls care more about Bucky than Natasha, it should be noted that they are actually denying him the agency of the only real choice he made for himself as the Winter Soldier.

Travis Wall is way more than $1000. There are a lot of choreographers that ask around that much, that are 1/50 as known. I heard a few years back its $10,000 for a Travis solo.

where did you hear that? that’s seems really high. maybe a couple grand but 10k?? seriously that’s  absurd for a parent to pay for a solo for their kid that they do 6 times

every burger king I go to my power multiplies and with these great deals such as a 10 piece chicken nuggets for only $1.50 even I can afford to kill god

Republicans just passed a bill to allow shooting bears from helicopters

  • On March 21, the Senate approved a bill that rolls back Obama-administration regulations and allows for aerial hunting and live-trapping of bears and wolves, NPR reported. 
  • The bill also abolishes rules that prevented hunters from killing predators near their dens or with their cubs.
  • Animal rights advocates are hardly excited that Republican legislators are potentially paving the way for hunters to kill hibernating bears and their cubs. Read more. (3/28/17, 1:50 PM)

Becca Longo is believed to be first woman to ever get a college football scholarship

  • A high school senior in Arizona just became the first female football scholarship recipient at an NCAA DII school or higher, per ESPN.
  • Becca Longo has signed a letter of intent with Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado, according to CNN, after sending out her highlights reel to various colleges and adding Timm Rosenbach, the head football coach at Adams State, on Twitter. 
  • That caught his eye, and got him to watch her tape.
  • “If she’s able to compete at a level we think she’s able to compete at, we should afford her that opportunity to do that,” Rosenbach told CNN.
  • According to ESPN, roughly a dozen women have played college football, but Longo is the first known scholarship recipient. Read more (4/17/17 1:50 PM)

Hack The Planet: Sombra Stuff

BEEN HERE ALL ALONG

Sombra’s base skins are named after natural colors:

Cidro (Citrus) / Incendio (Fire) / Mar (Sea) / Noche (Night) 

Her “Azucar” skin (Lit. “Sugar”) is based on the sugar skulls commonly associated on the skulls created for Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos), a very popular holiday in Mexico. These skulls are called ‘calaveras’ (Lit. “Skull”) and are created as offerings to the deceased. Sombra’s trademark hacking symbols (the skull) is based on the sugar calaveras as well.

Her “Los Muertos” skin is based on an in-universe gang known as Los Muertos (Lit. “The Dead”) that terrorize the city of El Dorado and like to wear glow-in-the-dark tattoos that make them resemble skeletons. 

Both her Azucar and Los Muertos skins have glow-in-the-dark tattoos, but Azucar’s is patterned on white sugar skulls while Los Muertos’ is patterned on neon skeletons.

Sombra used to be a member of Los Muertos, where she single-handedly leaked vital LumeriCo information and started a public overthrow of the power company.

Sombra was a member of the gang from a very young age, using her small stature and unassuming looks to steal data and give it to Los Muertos. Although some members of the gang show anti-omnic tendencies, most art of the gang shows that omnics can join if they want

Sombra’s voice line “Mess with the Best and Die like the Rest” is a reference to the movie “Hackers”, for obvious reasons. “Hack the Planet” is also from that movie.

Sombra’s playful ‘Boop’ she does to Katya Volskaya in “Infiltration” is actually a thinly veiled threat. Katya does this ‘boop’ to her daughter a sign of affection. Sombra did it to Katya to show that she has been watching the mother and daughter and can easily do more damage if she would like to.

Sombra’s “Amused” emote where she draws a data-chunked circle in the air while music plays, then laughs dismissively and disables it has a long history. During the “Quien es Sombra?” ARG, Overwatch players were desperately trying to figure out who Sombra is and where she was from. This led to people frantically searching the game for anything that could possibly lead to Sombra’s whereabouts. Some users on the Overwatch reddit found some texture artifacts in the skybox of El Dorado, with most believing it to be some kind of code or cipher. This was called “the Skycode”. Everyone was trying to decrypt it every way, from 3D visualization to language ciphers to data compilation, but nothing was working. Then some users decided to try and make the data into a song, and this is where the “Amused” song comes from. the theory that the Skycode was an encrypted song was very popular, but in the end the Skycode artifact was just that: an artifact. It had nothing to do with Sombra at all and was simply a quirk of Overwatch’s graphics engine. Thus, the “Amused” emote.

Sombra’s ammo counter on her gun is in Hexcode, a common data type used in coding and hacking. Her gun holds 60 bullets, with her counter listing “3 C (60 in hex)” then counting down through the values from there. Her full value table, with each bullet being one value, is below:

3 C (60) | 3 B (59) | 3 A (58) | 3 9 (57) | 3 8 (56) | 3 7 (55) | 3 6 (54) | 3 5 (53)

3 4 (52) | 3 3 (51) | 3 2 (50) | 3 1 (49) | 3 0 (48) | 2 F (47) | 2 E (46) | 2 D (45)

2 C (44) | 2 B (43) | 2 A (42) | 2 9 (41) | 2 8 (40) | 2 7 (39) | 2 6 (38) | 2 5 (37)

2 4 (36) | 2 3 (35) | 2 2 (34) | 2 1 (33) | 2 0 (32)| 1 F (31) | 1 E (30) | 1 D (29)

1 C (28) | 1 B (27) | 1 A (26) | 1 9 (25) | 1 8 (24) | 1 7 (23) | 1 6 (22) | 1 5 (21)

1 4 (20) | 1 3 (19) | 1 2 (18) | 1 1 (17) | 1 0 (16) | 0 F (15) | 0 E (14) | 0 D (13)

0 C (12) | 0 B (11) | 0 A (10) | 0 9 (9) | 0 8 (8) | 0 7 (7) | 0 6 (6) | 0 5 (5) |

0 4 (4) | 0 3 (3) | 0 2 (2) | 0 1 (1) | 0 0 (0)

Sombra’s Translocater is based on stolen and reworked tech from Tracer’s Chronal Accelerator. Sometimes when you Translocate as Sombra, she’ll say a sarcastic “Cheers, Luv!”. Also, during prematch banter, Sombra will say “Sometimes I feel sick after I translocate. I’m sure you know what mean, eh Tracer?” to which Tracer replies “Wouldn’t be a problem if you disappeared forever.”

Boop!

The group is nominated for top social artist at the show, which airs live May 21 from Las Vegas.

K-pop fans might recognize some familiar faces on the red carpet of this year’s Billboard Music Awards.

BTS announced Monday (May 8) that they will attend the BBMAs in hopes of winning the award for top social artist. The event will be the K-pop superstars’ first U.S. red carpet.

If debuting at #2 on the UK charts, hitting #1 on Itunes in 42 countries, hitting #2 on Itunes WORLDWIDE, debuting at #1 on Billboard’s dance/EDM charts, and hitting #1 in 50 countries on Itunes Dance IS NOT enough to get you A-listed in the top UK radio stations, then what will?

This is the question most of us are asking about “Just Hold On.” Because these are real numbers. These are facts.

The bigger issue is that “Just Hold On” was a proven success when it was released. But it still had no radio support until weeks later in January. It still didn’t get the promotional support it deserved despite being a PROVEN entity.

Think about it - how many artists on Sony’s and JGG’s roster can even bring in that kind of success when a song drops? and take note, Just Hold On and Louis/Steve got zero promotion and zero hype BEFORE JHO dropped and YET they still managed to get those numbers in! No one even KNEW It was coming!

Do you know that when JHO dropped,  Louis Tomlinson’s Spotify profile grew SO QUICKLY? It was ranked 40th in the world and had over 15 million monthly listeners? Imagine that! All because of one song! This is Louis Tomlinson solo! He managed to outrank so many established solo artists.

Yet he still didn’t get the promotional support his song and him, as an artist, deserved. 

And this was AFTER he brought the numbers in. His team had weeks before the January promo to really get a good plan together and YET….  

Look, If you don’t get your own label and management’s support after ALL THAT success, then something is really wrong, isn’t it? Really makes you wonder what Louis has to prove at this point, and what he’s really up against. 

Why did his team continue shitting on him and generating bad press even after he was a proven success???
