The day Sam (the Eagle) met Sam (the Falcon).
Sam the Eagle was not nervous. American icons did not get nervous. He was merely looking forward to an opportunity to meet a fellow patriot.
Sam Wilson was okay with admitting that he was just a little nervous. I mean, okay, they’re talking puppets? And it’s not like people take Sam the Eagle that seriously. It’s just that the poor guy takes himself so seriously, you know? And you don’t want to mess with that.
Neither Steve nor Kermit, watching fondly from the sidelines, is at all surprised when they immediately hit it off.
Sam the Eagle whips around when he hears Steve’s camera go off.
"Don’t worry," Steve says. "You look great."
Sam Wilson adds, “We can take another one, if you want. Maybe pose with the suit, salute a flag or something,” and Kermit beams proudly, because it’s obvious that Sam understands Sam the Eagle.

When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.
She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.
Girl is 50 years old.
FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.
fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this.
You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half.
Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium.
This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks.
Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS.
she kicks ass like a coursing river
with all the force of a great typhoon
Homeless shelter is transformed into 5-star restaurant, hot food and warm hearts all around. See the full video here.
I watched the video and I thought it was great. Because it’s not just like, nice food or whatever, it’s being treated like a guest. The people who staged this also made a 5k donation as well as handing out fancy gift bags that had basic self-care items/toiletries which are in really high demand because people will donate food but never think about hairbrushes, soap, toothpaste, et cet.
Not only that but i really appreciate the sentiment here that’s so against that whole poverty policing, “poor people don’t deserve anything nice ever” bullshit that’s getting louder in our society.
Juts so sweet.

William H. Foster III, comic book historian, on representation in comic books. From PBS’s Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle.
Because a post crossed my dash recently asking why we need to push for more representation in comic books and media in general. 50 years later, this man still tears up because in one panel, Peter Parker spoke to an unnamed black kid. That’s why we need representation.
I didn’t say, “What about the men?” I am a feminist who understands how stupid that is. I just thought that pointing out that they were white and male was the least of the problems in the discussion. It just seemed like piling on and not very empathetic. But hey. I’ve been wrong before and will be again. I thought that’s what open discussion about these things are about. I thought we were trying to win hearts and minds.
I seem to be a follower short. That’s not what I wanted considering I have nothing but respect for the former follower.
But to say that being a Stay At Home Dad is a privilege trivializes a lot of hard work that women and men do. Quite frankly it’s VERY insulting.
I want to lash out right now but that would be unkind, stupid, and mean. I don’t want that at all. I just wish others would afford me the same kindness.
