Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

 (via)

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.

There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.

Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.

The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?

Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

Sometimes clever posts die a quiet death in the abyss of the unreblogged. Some clever posts get attention, get comments, get better. Then there’s this one which I’ve watched evolve into a thing of brilliance.

spikedrewthis:

Hey, folks. I’ll be publishing a new comics anthology next spring. Perhaps you’d like to pitch a story for it?
New World is a black-and-white sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology with the theme of exploration, colonization, conquest, assimilation, “going native,” appropriation, imperialism, strained relations… essentially, what happens when mutually un-contacted cultures, continents, and species collide.
The deadline for submissions is November 20th. Head on over to the official page to see how to submit, and I can’t wait to see what you’ve got.

Hazel ♂|♀ - Corylus avellana
Hazelnuts we usually eat in delicious desserts and sweets come from a tree-shrub called scientifically Corylus avellana (Fagales - Betulaceae). 
Hazel flowers are monoecious and the pollen is transferred by wind from the long hanging male catkins to the tiny (a few mm) pinkish female flowers.
The male flowers are in the form of pendulous pale yellow catkins, which are known as ‘lamb’s-tails’. The female flowers appear on the same branches as catkins, they are small red tufts on swollen bud-like structures, and it is these that develop into hazel nuts after fertilization. The edible nuts grow in groups of up to four; they reach two centimetres in size and are sheathed by papery modified leaves.

I work in a museum in Oregon, which is several states and many hundreds of miles removed from any reports of Ebola or any hospitals treating Ebola patients.

That did no stop a person from calling yesterday, in full panic, asking what our Ebola prevention protocol was…
