X-Factor Investigations #1
Okay, can we talk about this asshole right here? This “useless” asshole. The only human on an all-powered up team of heavy hitters. Let’s see what this idiot has done/can do without his powers:
- Realized that Siryn was missing and then proceeded to save her (alone).
- Knew that Layla was hiding some shit (super paranoia powers).
- Tech expert (has hacked into the FBI and the Avengers' mainframe).
- He thinks ahead (ex: e-mailed Layla the Singularity evidence).
- Defeated Pietro, absorbed the terrigan crystals, and saved Layla (again alone).
- He didn’t fall for Huber’s ploy, held his own against him, and brought the team back from the arctic wasteland.
- He escaped Arcade’s deathtrap and shut down his system.
- He’s not afraid to fight (took on 3 pimps by himself).
- He does disguises and infiltration for the team.
- He’s a sketch artist.
- He had a shoot out with a buttload of government agents.
And that’s just what I could think of off the top of my head. Julio is clever, paranoid, and, most importantly of all, he’s one of the few in X-Factor to have actually adapted to being a detective.
While the others could just continue to rely on their powers, Rictor had to expand his skill set. He is one of, if not the, most useful members on the team. It’s enough to make me wish that he hadn’t gotten his powers back just because I need to hear him say “Yeah I’m human, but I’m the most useful jerk you’ve got on this team, so suck it.”
“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”
Shut up already.
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection.
As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…
A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier. Her dad has ALS. The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp. And they did. She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.
honestly it really infuriates me that the doctor and clara look at a dalek talking about how much it wants to commit genocide and decide it is a “good dalek,” a “moral” dalek because it switched the species it wants to kill
and then the moral lesson is that daleks aren’t all bad they can be good if they want to murder the right species
instead of, like, how genocide is not an estimable activity

Days of Future Past + Tumblr (Part II)
Jim is having none of that gross baby fluid stuff Mary!
After a mission Clint goes missing. Days pass but Natasha finally finds him stumbling around in a dirty alley disoriented and screaming.
Tony does some tests and finds that Clint is not only suffering from some form of psychosis but he’s also gone completely deaf.
- i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
- i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
- i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
- i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
- i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
- i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
- i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics
- i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled
listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t

"Gilderoy Lockhart is the only Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher to have no connection at all to Voldemort."
That’s because even Voldemort has a certain demand for skill and competence
that was the sickest burn i have ever seen
Finally someone says what I always think when such questions are asked.
