Manufactured by Rokuoh-Sha’s occult investigation hardware branch between 1933 and 1944 to match the advances of the Thule-Gesellschaft in paranormal defense prior to World War 2. 35mm 120MeV hydrogen ions beam. People don’t often think about the occult front of WW2.
While we’re on the topic of Civil War having weird narratives: Peter Parker’s speech about being a Superhero completely aligns with Steve’s worldview, not Tony’s… yet Marvel had Spidey side with Tony. It makes his storyline a little muddled, because while the narrative objectively connects Peter to Tony through their heart-to-heart conversation, Marvel wrote Peter as being very similar to Steve. With the characterization they gave us, there’s no way Peter would have joined Tony’s side if he knew anything about the fight.
Peter says to Tony ”If you can do the things that I can, but you don’t, and then bad things happen… they happen because of you” .
Which is the same philosophy that Steve has, and says to Tony twice in this movie: first when discussing the Accords – “What if there’s somewhere we need to go, but [the UN] won’t let us?” – and then later, in a more personal tone: “If I see a situation pointed South, I can’t ignore it”.
Both Steve and Peter believe their powers almost obligate them to help people whenever they can, because they can. Taking that choice to help out of their hands doesn’t make them any less responsible for what occurs – it just shifts the blame. Which is why Steve won’t sign the Accords, and Peter helps people even though he’s just a kid who’d prefer to play football. They want to help, they can help… so they do. It’s that simple honesty and true belief that really defines Captain America, and we see it here in Peter, too.
Tony accepts Peter’s answer even while realizing that it’s Steve’s argument (which is weird, since he fought with Steve on the same statement only hours before), and replies “So you want to look out for the little guy, do your part, make the world a better place?”. Peter agrees and reiterates that the ‘little guy’ is his reason for being a superhero.
Which is interesting, because Steve has always been the little guy from Brooklyn who just wanted to help make the world a better place. Steve and Bucky are the underdog in this fight… not Tony and the government. This aligns Peter with Steve even more, but Marvel still tries to connect him to Tony over their intelligence and shared love of technology.
Tony gets Peter to fight for his side using Steve’s ideology. And Marvel doesn’t really acknowledge the irony in that. It’s especially unsettling when Peter parrots back what Tony said about Steve, not realizing it’s actually Tony’s problem in the film: “You’re wrong, but you think you’re right. That makes you dangerous”.
Mauser Pocket pistol M1910 manufactured my Mauser in Oberndorf, Germany c.1910~1913. 6,35x16mmSR/.25ACP, extended magazine. This interesting piece comes with a Wespi Lichtzielgeräte battery-powered torch-scope, an early precursor to the modern laser dot sights with rather macabre branding.
130 manufactured in 1944 by the Sterling Armament Co. in Dagenham, East London, United Kingdom. .45ACP subsonic, 7-round standard pistol magazine, bolt action, integral suppressor. This fascinating weapon was developed by William Godfray de Lisle, British engineer at the Air Ministry, between 1942 and 1944. Its suppressor, an improvement over Hiram Percy Maxim’s silencer, made it inaudible beyond 45m, a quarter of its effective range. It was an invaluable asset for British commandos and a much better alternative to the Welrod pistol that could only fire a few rounds at very short range before needing repair.
Humans are Weird: War, Torture, and Human Resilience
Human year 3078
Day 89 of Cultural Mission between Earth and Th'urag'ony
I have come to the conclusion that humans are immensely terrifying. My recent studies have focused on the human aspect “empathy”, which interests me greatly. I have found numerous examples of this trait. I have found what happens when it is lacked. And, today, I have discovered its consequences.
Humans have no castes. They fluctuate between whatever jobs they need to accomplish, instead of dividing jobs into classes like on my home planet. Therefore, all humans have the same nervous system. They all feel the same pains when things happen.*
This triggers empathy.
This is a weapon.
Humans know what hurts them, and can and have used that knowledge to hurt others.
Today I was shown a “museum”. This is a collection place for human knowledge of the past. This particular museum was dedicated to human wars. Earth, like most planets has known war. I knew this. I did not realize that the vitality and resilience humans are so famous for factored into their wars.
On my planet, when we fight it is quick. Any puncture to the exoskeleton results in death. Many of our soldiers die from the trauma of seeing extreme violence. Humans on the other hand, do not succumb to such things.
They suffer cuts and breaks of their squishy outer layer, and their blood clots to seal it. They lose entire limbs, and sow it shut or burn it and their skin regenerates. Burns, acid, bombs, bullets, it doesn’t matter. If it doesn’t hit a vital organ, and the microscopic organisms that Earth is teeming with don’t enter the wound, a human will live.
In fact, they’re so resilient, some humans are subjected to these actions over and over again for information. They call it “torture”. The hard covers on their nails are removed, their eyes are plucked out, water is poured down their lungs, and still they live. I can’t write down all the atrocities humans commit on one another without feeling as if I will die of stress. Sometimes humans keep their enemies as prisoners for years, even after wars end. Sometimes they live, they escape or are released, and sometimes the physical pain and emotional agony are too much for even their resilience and they die.
There are regulations in most human hives that decrease the likely hood of things like this happening, but not in every hive and it wasn’t always this way. At the museum I met a few “veterans” (retired soldiers). One had no fingers on one hand, one carried an oxygen tank to breath in his own atmosphere, and one had a leg twisted so badly he relied on a wheeled chair to move around. All of them were smiling. All of them recounted war stories that made my antennae quiver, and laughed afterwards. They told of various incidents of thinking they were back on the battle field and having “flash backs”. They called it PTSD. They fought many years ago, and still experience stress from the after effects, yet they still live.
If this is what humans are capable of when fighting each other, then I am very, very glad they are on our side.
*Some humans have been documented to not feel pain at all. They have to be watched because they can hurt themselves and not notice. If this is ever bred into human soldiers, Thuranznia help us all.
SCENE ONE: long haired Rachel holds an fruit longingly while Token Goth Girl in a Christian Movie twaddles her fingers. They all have apples and nothing else. Just apples at this table. And everyone looks miserable.
OwO what’s this? She looks to the side and sees Rat Boy, Dildo Ebola, eating an orange. That’s the orange table, Rachel. We’re the apple table. We don’t associate with them. Why are they eating so much fruit? Why is he looking at her like that? Why is he looking at her at all? Why does he care?
fLUSTERED dylan suddenly turns to his orange
Yes… orange, very peely and orange. he is looking for anything to distract him from his boring red-shirted friend, who is staring lustfully at an apple, a probable symbolism of the girls at the Apple Table .
“get rid of all the fat ugly retarted gross stupid weird nerd star wars fans old people nickelback fans bronies twihards people that arent i eric har” wAIT, this red shirted, hairy-armed chap must be Eric Hairless! Wonderful. He has a glass of apple juice, and an apple. What a rebellious choice from someone outside the Apple Table. Must symbolize what will happen to the people at the Apple Table. Eric you cruel monster….. you devil…. I cant even look at him and his ham sandwich.
Dildo and random guy who i’m assuming is some sort of Brooks Brown character look at ranting child Eric with distaste. Is he done? Will he ever be done? Seems, upon closer inspection, Dylan is the only one eating an orange. Is every table the Apple Table? Does this symbolize how Dildo Memaw had no sense of belonging in the world? What the everloving fuck is Brooks Brown Guy wearing? 1950′s Grandpa pajamas? That’s not grunge at all. We have our first glance at the pristine white hats in the background. Our eric finishes his rant and looks at Dildo for validation. W-Was it cool, Dylan-senpai? OwO?
“y-yeah.” He stutters. Oh god. I can just smell Dave Cullen. What the fuck is he wearing??? Is that some kind of bondage harness? Or it could be just a keycard or something but to what? Weird design to it also.
Eric, finding validation in the y-yeah, continues on with his rant, looking up from his beloved apple to his gay lover. “Nobody is deserving of this planet,” he says “just me and who i chose.” FUNNY because I think i remember the quote being “Give the world back to the animals, they deserve it more than we do,” but of course they had to satan it up so people hated him more.
“send them all up to space”
“dude we can’t send them to space”
TWO trenchcoated figures appear in the background! We weren’t looking at Dylan and Eric the entire time! These inaccuracies weren’t actually inaccuracies. Thank you Dave. But they are.
“look at these F AR T K N O CK ERS!!!”
alright, i’ll admit i lost my s h i t when he said that. Whhhhat? is that a slang for gay… because like, anal? Probably not. Probably a Christian censored version of ‘fag’ or something. So… it could be? I don’t know. It’s easier not to think about it….. they never said it…………………………………… they never said it….
“what’s up? F O U R E YE S” he pushes the trenchcoated chap into a table.
He kinda just nudges him into the table, but he flies across the table, knocking everything over, breaking his spine and rendering him immobile for the rest of his life. Not really. But i’m sure Dave asked. By the way, yes, I’m sure Dave Cullen is involved with this movie. He can call me a dirtbag, but I know.
he gets up?
and falls to the ground, his trenchcoat goth friends dragging him away as Jock Stud over there kicks him. He has been rendered immobile for some reason. Everyone watches, amused. This always happens at 12:00. Same time every morning. It’s a spectacle.
come on bro, we gotta be gay somewhere else…. these heterosexuals don’t accept us.”
“YEAH GOOD JOB HELPING YOUR BUDDY OUT GUYS, GOOD TEAMWORK”
thanks, jock? is that even an insult? thanks for the motivation,
The jocks laugh in triumph, they have belittled another Goth. They’re so fucking cool, and they know it. There are many ways to wear a white hat, but they’re all wearing it at a 90 degree angle, pristine white like they soak them in bleach before they go to school, and backwards.
they have this really long pan on this black kid. Eric’s face is wrinkled in distaste. I think this is the moment trying to signify that Eric is racist because he’s looking at the black bully distastefully. Alright, Christian Movie. Thanks for that.
Rachel giving the Lanza Stare™ to the Jocks.
Who is this and why are him and Rachel making intimate eye contact? He looks like Dennis the Menace. Like who the fuck is this supposed to be. Also what shampoo does that other jock guy use? Damn
What I’m assuming is he’s one of Rachel’s friends that is trying to relapse and recover from his Jock Asshole ways but he can’t seem to quit. Rachel reminds him and he feels shame.
Back to the Sin Table, Dylan looks expectantly at Eric as he continues peeling his fucking orange. He expects him to be like I DONT CARE WHAT YOU SAY IF YOU EVER TOUCH HIM AGAIN ILL FRICKIN KILL YOU ILL PULL OUT A GODDAMN SHOTGUN AND BLOW YOUR DAMN HEAD OFF DO YOU UNDERSTAND YOU LITTLE WORTHLESS PIECE OF CRAAAAHP but no, sadly, because that is not Eric’s true colors. That is his mobster alter-ego, Reb.
He looks like a thirty year old christian youth leader that’s newly married with a baby on the way. But he looks angry also… i guess?? I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt.
he violently bangs his apple on the table. Damn, does he want to bang someone from the Apple Table on the table?/?/????? Where does his violence end
ooh dam, it got a broose. Also he’s fucking shredded. Why.
