Anyone who dismisses her as eye candy didn’t watch the same movie I did, and ought to go sit in a corner and think about their misogyny.

I mean, god, it’s the little things.  That “who do you want me to be?” she asks Steve while they’re in the car is just so raw.  This is a woman whose entire life has been defined by ‘who do you want me to be?’ and so she falls back on it because she has nothing else left.  And Steve doesn’t buy into the trap and just says “how about a friend?”

And god, her face when she thought Nick Fury was dying. The sheer level of silent devastation she’s trying not to show and failing.  

I just cannot get seeing this moving and not seeing Natasha. Because if you just dismiss her as eye candy, that’s what you’re doing (I’m looking at you, several male reviewers). 

Today’s list of standout Natasha moments (it varies):

  • Reaction to Nick’s death.
  • Reaction to NIck’s not being dead (she looks so wounded under the physical pain and confusion).
  • Suiting up and infiltrating the WSC meeting with Pierce with a gunshot wound to her shoulder. 
  • Speaking of that, saving their asses shortly after getting said GSW, using a heavy piece of equipment even while she could barely stand.
  • Using the widow’s bite on herself.
  • That moment where she pauses to gird her emotional loins before she respond’s to Pierce’s jab about the world seeing her as she is (which it wouldn’t, because of course who she is and how she is is not what she’s done).
  • The steely-eyed, contained anger bubble gum snap. (Most bad-ass use of bubble gum ever.)

Because of the weight of the ends of the forks, and how they’re distributed behind the penny (closer to the glass), the center of gravity of the whole system is actually shifted quite significantly. If I’m right, it would actually have to be right where the penny meets the glass. This mean, in a sense, all the “weight” of the system of the forks and penny is resting right on that point, rather than out in the air, so if you balance it, it’ll be stable on the glass.
SCIENCE.


…….Close enough

The difference between Science and Engineering.

indypendenthistory:

On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.

Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.
Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.  
She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”

The term BAMF was coined for such persons. 

Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?

Yet another story I would like to read.
