monkeys on bikes

Im 3000% here for grease monkey Tony tho

• always has a lil grime under his fingernails bc oil and grease gets EVERYWHERE and takes forever to get rid of

• has like 2 shirts and a pair of jeans reserved for when he tinkers with tech that are just /saturated/ with grease and are torn and ripped and Pepper has tried to throw them away multiple times but the clothes magically reappear the next time Tony is in the shop

• he still manages to get at least one high dollar suit irreparably stained every year like clockwork

• little bruises and cuts on his knuckles and hands and forearms bc being elbow deep in an engine always results in some sort of superficial injury

• hates the ideal of someone else working on his cars. Even a simple oil change or replacing a battery or spark plugs

• “where is the 3/8 socket??? I literally just put it down! What the fuck?!”

• once asked Pepper to order some blinker fluid for his Spyder (trust me, it’s a real joke aimed at people who aren’t familiar with cars)

• has done on-the-fly repairs and diagnosis to vehicles belonging to reporters and his fans. “Wait a sec. Sounds like your car is missing on a cylinder. Do you mind if I take a look?” And just pops the hood or crawls under the vehicle and goes to town

• curses at vehicles or equipment then immediately apologizes

Autumn 1979. Ohio. Five kids on bikes tool around their suburban development and stumble into an adventure involving monsters and sinister authority figures.

Autumn 1983. Indiana. Four kids on bikes tool around their suburban development and stumble into an adventure involving monsters and sinister authority figures.

Autumn 1988. Ohio. Four kids on bikes tool around their suburban development and stumble into an adventure involving monsters and sinister authority figures.

These are the setups of three recent pop culture offerings: respectively, the 2011 film Super 8, the new Netflix series Stranger Things, and the Image Comics series Paper Girls, which launched last year.

But these three properties share a lot more than just that common jumping-off point. They are all concerned with adolescence, specifically the push-pull tension between the familiar safety of home and the unknown dangers of the adult world.

Do you visit circuses that use animals, do you give money to these awful gimmicky animal tourist attractions, do you watch videos of elephants painting and monkeys riding bikes etc… And laugh? Is this entertainment to you? Because it’s no fun for the animals that are used. Please next time you come across any animals used in entertainment, think about this image. Think about all the things that happen to these very same animals behind the scenes. Is it natural behavior for a monkey to ride a bike or an elephant to paint? Is it natural behaviour for elephants and horses to be dancing in shows with huge noisy crowds? Is this what we are going to reduced these beautiful wild creatures to? Our entertainment?

Some words to haters

Haters gonna hate.
So, wait a minute. My yesterday post was not racist. I love all the nations, and our little “xsicans” community too. But what i saw today? Some guys said that it was racism? 
You know what? Go fuck yourselves.
Because it`s NOT racism. Stereotypes - yes, tons of them. But not racism, not a little fucking bit. 
Racism - when you tell an afroamerican “go away you dirty monkey, don`t touch my bike”.
Racism - when you look at Chinese girl and say to your friend - “wooooah, she might work for a cup of rice”
Racism - when you hate all muslim because they have another traditions than you. 
But xsicans have no rasist subtext. They were made by an accident, and “just for lulz”, nothing more. Some of their phrases can be understood only when you know russian a little. But they are still funny - try to fucking imagine x-men in mexican style, come on! 
And, you know, how can some of you talk about racism, when all bad guys in YOUR films are, SUDDENLY, russians or latinos, or chinese? 

So, to those, who still didn`t understand - it`s a joke, some sort of weird humor. Stereotypes never were an attribute of racism, and never will be. You think, all russians live like in USSR - this is your stereotype, some of us laugh when hear that. We don`t have bears on streets, don`t like vodka as main alcohol drink, don`t play all day on balalayka - but it`s really funny to hear that stereotypes about us. And noone will hate you for this,because it is not racism. 
And one more thing.
You still don`t know, HOW LOUD WE LAUGH BECAUSE OF WINTER KAZAKH
Holy shit, we promote russian “Guardians” better, than their PR managers.
