France becomes the first country to ban plastic plates and cutlery
The ban, to take effect in 2020, is part of a program aimed at making France a model for reducing environmental waste.

Another great step in the right direction to reduce single-use plastics and plastic pollution in the ocean!

Pvt. Chris Wynne graduated boot camp in 1997 and took his 3-year-old son, Chris Wynne Jr., to stand on the yellow footprints before leaving Parris Island. Today, Wynne Jr. is back, training with Platoon 2069, Golf Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion and scheduled to graduate on Aug. 31, 2013.

Okay so Clint starts playing OFF, right? Right. 

And Pepper Steak starts playing and suddenly Steve and Bucky just fucking appear, they just, poof, are right there wondering what the fuck Clint what is the thing why is it playing good music? 

and Clint tries to explain the game

and they’re 99% sure he’s just fucking with them so they start getting testy

and he’s like no

seriously

he’s a batter, fighting ghosts, he’s purifying all the zones–you know what, you can just watch if you want

and that’s how Steve and Bucky backseat game the whole of OFF with Clint. Every time Pepper Steak comes on, they get up and dance. At first its just Steve and Bucky, but then at some point Bucky makes Steve and Clint switch so he can teach Barton a step or two. That’s how Clint learns to swing and Steve becomes addicted to turn-based RPGs.

And the three of them beat the game and then for the next week they shout ‘WHALE’ at each other and no one fucking gets it and everyone’s very annoyed at them–they aren’t used to Steve, Bucky and Clint having inside jokes LET ALONE ONES ABOUT MARINE MAMMALS???
