FLY, YOU FOOLS.
Quick and simple lifehacks.
The one thing I think fanfic authors miss, is Rhodey went to MIT with Tony. His major was probably aerospace engineering, since many Air Force officer candidates major in this area. You know what…
Of course it’s not canon to the games. It’s an adaptation.
Do you think “Batman: The Animated series” is canon to the DC comics? The Marvel movies to the comics?
Like, DUH, people.
I just had a debate with someone who performed a significant feat of mental gymnastics to argue that Slade Wilson can’t be Maori in Arrow.
Despite being explicitly from Australia and played by a half Maori actor.
What the hell is wrong with people?
lmao they’re probably the same type of people that were arguing a while back that Manu Bennett is in fact a white guy irl
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
This makes me laugh every time I see it.
nah, not your fault. I am surprised though, are they an official artist? I would think they could get in trouble, working on a franchise aimed largely at kids.
It’s sadly not uncommon. The character designer for Mega Man Zero was a noted hentai artist, for instance.
I really fucked up, didn’t I?
