Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

And now, having waited twenty minutes for a bus, I will wait another thirty, because the FOUR busses that showed up all at once decided to drive right on past.

EVIL CORN MASK LMFAO WHO WOULD THINK OF THIS

I can’t argue.

Can this be combined with the infamous Sexy Corn Costume?

For you, the world.

It’s unspeakably reassuring that I wasn’t the only one who immediately had that thought…

in which a gay cover of one of america’s most quintessential modern american love songs is a thing that exists

You know how sometimes you have a random, passing thought and then THAT EXACT THING HAPPENS and you become convinced that you control the whole universe with your mind and fall into an endless pit of solipsism?

Yeah, that.

(Is Nate Borofsky singing Son of a Preacher Man a thing that exists on Tumblr, or am I going to have to do that myself?)

Me, before writing anything: I’m in the mood to write some porn! Nothing complicated. Dirty, intense sex!

Me after writing about cuddling under blankets: I’m so confused. 

I’m torn between vowing to never work on Marathon Day again, and just accepting that wild and unexpected public transit adventures are an annual tradition for me, now.

I remain impressed at the Chicago marathon’s ability to fuck up transit in new and novel ways every single year.

Andre Braugher is an actor so in love with Shakespeare that he is saving ‘Pericles, Prince of Tyre’ for later in life. ‘I’ve never read it because I’d like to see one Shakespeare play that I don’t know what happens,’ Braugher told me one afternoon. He sighed dreamily. ‘I close my ears and hum whenever I hear anything about ‘Pericles, Prince of Tyre.’

So beautiful and badass.

From The New York Times Magazine’s excellent profile on Andre Braugher.

This is adorable, and also really depressing, because Pericles is kind of a terrible play.

Looking up Scottish mythological creatures and

Wulver: a werewolf in Shetland, that is said to have had the body of a man with a wolf’s head. It was reported to have left fish on the windowsills of poor families.

That is the nicest Werewolf legend I’ve ever heard of.

Now I wish I could draw because I’d love to draw this.

His pointer finger circled my puckered love cave. “Are you ready for this?” he mewled, smirking at me like a mother hamster about to eat her three-legged young.

We were at my grandparents’ house for Easter today, and my brother brought along the Nintendo Wii for our cousins to play
Only he forgot the sensor bar :T the thing that makes the wii-motes work and junk
Then he remembered this crazy myth he heard basically said if you light two candles, they act as a sensor bar.
I DON’T KNOW HOW
BUT IT TURNS OUT IT FUCKING WORKS.
So if you ever lose or break the sensor bar, and don’t mind your TV looking like an offering to Satan, I recommend candles :I

I’ll remember that for the next time my sensor bar stuffs up…

This also works with flashlights, in case you don’t have any candles handy. c:

The “sensor” bar doesn’t actually have any sensors. The sensors are in the Wii-mote. The sensor bar is actually just a line of infrared LEDs that an IR camera in the Wii-mote can see, which means you can substitute other IR sources, like candles and flashlights.

Science, hail Satan.

Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish. 

THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS

Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.

Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together. 

this continues to be the best reply to a criticizing comment on this site

Almost positive that I’ve reblogged this before, but I’m doing it again, because… Snooty McSnotwhine. XD
