There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.

Q:Tony and Steve should have been bros. I always felt that tension was super forced in Avengers; like, I saw zero reason for Steve to be that hostile to Tony just right off the bat. Like... Steve's a good judge of character and Tony's kind of an ass, true, but so was Howard and TONY IS A BETTER GUY THAN /HOWARD/. I feel like we were cheated. I get that Steve was angry and had a lot of stuff and was doing that whole "Keep Calm and Carry On" thing but I still think we could have had that AND bros...
We were so totally cheated in Avengers. I mean, okay, I see the point from a narrative standpoint, I do. These are really different people and they’re diffident and mistrustful to begin with, and yes, if they’d all gotten along merrily from the start it wouldn’t have been super interesting and you do need the ‘all is lost’ moment in act 2 after Phil is murdered and then they rally — but I find the ~~mounting tension among the Avengers could’ve been dealt with differently?
Steve’s read Tony’s file. I’m sure Tony kept some things (ie,everything that happened in Afghanistan) very close to the chest, but still, Shield knows about Obadiah Stane. That should’ve been in the file. Steve would fucking recognize that Tony is Howard’s son, he would pick up on the mannerism, on the sarcasm, on the carefree, snarky attitude (Howard told Steve a radio transmitter had been tested more than him?? Like, seriously.).
Steve and Tony, canonically upon first meeting each other in the MCU, have absolutely no reason not to get along. You want to give them a reason to fight? Have Steve demand they confront Fury right away to prove Tony’s suspicions. Have Tony insist that stealth is their best option, tell him going head to head with Fury is a waste of time. They need proof Fury can’t confute. Tony wants to trust his tech — Steve wants to go in guns-a-blazing. They fight over the best approach to do the same thing. Steve goes and does the thing and finds Tessearct based WMD. Tony hitches his eyebrow at him, going, ”Wow the old man never mentioned what a fucking brilliant diplomat you were, this, this is brand new information, I need to recalibrate everything, Rogers, who knew,” and he is absolutely delighted.
And by the way we’ve also dropped the fact that Fury asked Thor to torture his brother? That thread never gets picked up again? How do the Avengers feel about that? What does Fury plan to do with Clint once they find him, at that point in the movie? You can have so much tension between Shield and the Avengers, which realize they have to band together because they are all treated like threats at that point, and that they can’t trust Shield, and they need to do things on their own.
It wouldn’t have taken much. It really wouldn’t have. The entire plotline could’ve stayed the same. Think about Steve talking to Tony after losing Coulson. Steve, who’s entirely too calm and controlled at that point, given that he’s had less than two weeks to adjust, to grieve. Have Steve mention Bucky. Have Tony ask Steve does it get any easier, because Tony doesn’t have a measure for war, he doesn’t know, and he’s grown up with stories of Captain America, the Super Soldier. Have Steve tell Tony it never gets better. It never goes away. Have them bond over the fact that they’re about to wade in another war and the don’t know if they’re going to survive.
Have Shield be more resistant of Clint. Show me Natasha breaking him out because she knows Clint is back to himself and trusts him. Show me the Avengers outdoing and outsmarting the system. Because that’s what they do and it breaks my heart because I do love the movie, I do, but it could’ve been so much better, and it did such a disservice to Clint and Steve and, I just.
We could’ve had it all.
7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:
- That nudity is inherently sexual
- That people should be judged for their personal decisions
- That yelling solves problems
- That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
- That age correlates to importance
- That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
- That the default for someone is straight and cisgender
Baby going through tunnel
probably thought his entire existence ended
nerdy moment: babies at that age don’t have object permanence. if the object cannot be seen, it does not exist. image how freaked the fuck out you would be if suddenly everything went black - effectively ceasing to exist. the baby’s entire world vanished then came back.
so yeah. he probably did think his entire existence ended.
It’s not nerdy. It’s called child development.
Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
I DIDN’T KNOW THIS WHAT.
danged sympathetic fictional pirates and their refusal to engage in the slave trade, I’ll tell you what.
