Captain America is not just for the good days. He can’t be. I can’t be. If Captain America can’t stant for the Dream on the very worst day– When America is fallen– Then there is no Captain America. Because our worst day is where we start from. Where we rise from. And if the man in the flag is too special to fall and rise and struggle with the rest… Then God help us all.
These girls really changed my life for the better. No matter how good or bad PP3 turns out, I’m sure I’m gonna love it anyway because all three movies mean so much to me and this is too sincere for me to be, it’s gross, but I can’t imagine how my life would turn out if I didn’t know them or even be in this fandom because this is one of the best times I’ve had and I don’t regret it at all these past 5 years. I’d gladly spend 5 years more with them.
*fakes his death, gives up his entire life, and any chance at practicing medicine ever again (plus years of jail time if he's ever found out), all so that his bestie Wilson doesn't have to spend his last 5 months alone*
I’ve been thinking if opening my writing to not only be dedicated to Spiderman, but maybe have some Deadpool imagines too? I mean, everyone loves the merc with a mouth and I’m no exception. If you want me to stick to writing Spiderman/Peter Parker then I’ll do that but I was wondering if it would be ok doing some Pooly too ❤
“This is a black hole. It consumes matter, sucks it in, and crushes it beyond existence. When I first heard that, I thought that’s evil in its most pure. Something that drags you in, crushes you, makes you nothing.”
So what do you think of the results? It feels like a good result to me, but where do you think the UK goes from here?
There’s good and bad here.
The good parts are that 78% of young people voted and it really shows how much of a difference that made. And for the first time in years, the conservative party actually has great opposition from the labour party for the first time in years and they have the chance to make real change and try to block those potentially disastrous bills and I’m thrilled that labour jumped in popularity.
But the bad is so. Very. Bad. We still have an incompetent conservative prime minister. And now she’s looking to make a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to stay in power. In case people are confused about what the DUP stand for, here are there stances on a few things:
Arlene Foster, leader of the DUP since 2015 has made several homophobic comments about how marriage should only be between a man and a woman and has blocked a bill to pass it several times.
Members of the DUP have also said things like: “the facts show that you certainly don’t bring up a child in a homosexual relationship. That child is far more likely to be abused or neglected.“
Ian Paisley Jr. (son of the DUP founder Ian Paisley) has called homosexuality "immoral, offensive and obnoxious” and argues that he’s repulsed by gays and lesbians.
They once endorced a campaign called “Save Ulster from Sodomy”.
Sexism + abortion
Strongly against abortion.
Foster vowed to prevent abortions being made avaliable in Northern Ireland last year.
She said “I would not want abortion to be as freely available here as it is in England.”
Foster has made several comments about other politicians appearance and used it to criticize them.
Appointed Sammy Wilson, a radical climate change denier, as it’s environmental minister.
Wilson said it was a “con” to suggest humans had any involvement in changing weather patterns.
Argued against renewable energy in 2014, saying it’s the reason we pay so much for electricity.
Argued creationism should be forced to be taught in every school.
DUP politician Edwin Poots argues against the teaching of the scientific explanations like the big bang. He said “you’re telling me that cosmic balls of dust gathered and there was an explosion. We’ve had lots of explosions in Northern Ireland and I’ve never seen anything come out of that that was good.”
Past members have been kicked out of the Conservative party for being, what they deemed as, “too racist”.
And now these people have the potential to hold significant amounts of power over our country and I’m legitimately more terrified for this countries future than I have ever been before. (Please feel free to add anything if I’ve missed it).
Hey guys! I made another quotes masterpost for more scientists! There were a lot I left out on the first masterpost so I compiled them all and put them here for your enjoyment! I hope you find them inspirational like I have.

A/N: I’m not sure if this will be a series, please tell me if you want a second part
Summary: During the saddest part of your life, you made the biggest decision ever.
all started with three simple, but meaningful words. Something that
you hoped to hear, but now when you look back, you wish you never
did. It was amazing while it lasted and as fast it started, it ended
a deep breath you moved your hand higher. You were climbing on the
Avengers tower. The wind almost knocked you away a couple of times.
time, you are doing this Wade. ˝ You said into your earpiece.
Hearing his laugh, you rolled your eyes. You were already on the
thirtieth floor, almost on the roof. After a while you finally
climbed on the solid ground. You sat down catching your breath and
looking down over the edge.
I am ready to talk
I am ready to let it all out
Too long I have crushed my thoughts inside
Steven Wilson changed my life
The key to life is to live dangerously
Excessive reading and writing will make you go mad , the doctor said
You are this and you are that
You are in everything I see
I can’t stop I can’t stop I can’t stop can you please make me stop
Nature saved me for some time
It is magnificent
I am nothing and I am every one
If you had to live life again and again , go through the same thing over and over
Would you do it or would you not ?
Live life, challenge suffering
Suffering is the key to happiness
My biggest flaw is my empathy
I can see where you get your ideas
They are all noble and ideal
And your flaw is that the depth of internalisation of ideas that u read of
You do it so well
You understand it so well and you are so insane
If we look at how people behave and strive towards,
It is always going to be towards power
Empty values of our herd promoted by over abundance of personal choice
Timid mediocrity , fooling themselves that they were happy
The religion of comfortableness
Stare long into the abyss , and the abyss will stare back at you
You have been my 11:11 wish forever
And I have so many thoughts and ideas that you communicate with me
And I can’t communicate that I even think of them
Because u do it in a way that takes me aback
And I have to think for a bit
You make me think and I love you for that
And I love to think and I am afraid I shall only think of what you make me
You are the master of disguise and lies
Fuelled by idealistic pessimism and perfect internalisation of noble ideas
You are magnificent and dirty
A paradox I love and hate
And every opinion I have has a flip side to it
Even my opinion of you
And your brother is more magnificent than all of us
And i being a stupid human shall still continue to follow hierarchies
Continue to club things as one better than the other
When in every reality , but that of humans,
Ratings don’t exist, nothing is better than the other
How can we strive to achieve that which is completely and fully equal?
Our race is doomed towards destruction
Robots everywhere , fuelled by ideas they read on internet without enough introspection
Shallow depth of mind is so beneficial
To a few people of the world
That control you
They control what you see and what you eat
What you wear and what you just tear
You are being fed into , and you believe that the reality you are fed is yours
Oh dear oh dear , it isn’t
You pretend to be someone you are not
Because you are nothing inside really but that what you are fed
You are programmed to receive , as some great musicians said a few decades ago
Mankind is doomed and I shall never be happy for too long
Unless the trees cover me and give me a safe spot to lie on
The river flows with my feet in it
Reminding me of how small our existence is
And how quickly everything flies
And the only thing to remain will be the heat of the sun and the violent waterfalls
Soon you will be a part of the ground they stand on , just as our ancestors are
No one really understands death till it comes to them
And often it is their only salvation
It shall be mine as well.
