While Russia continues to claim it has no involvement in the civil conflict in Ukraine, the selfie-strewn Instagram profile of Russian soldier Sanya Sotkin may tell a slightly different story. A story which is landing Russian President, Vladimir Putin in even more hot water than he’s already in.
With the unwanted help of the ‘Photomap’ feature in Instagram, the 24-year-old’s Instagram profile shows a number of self-portraits that are geotagged inside the borders of Ukraine. More particularly, inside rebel-controlled territory, some of it dangerously close to the location of where Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was tragically shot down, killing all 298 people on board.
Mr. Putin, tear down this firewall!
"free speech" is my fav. thing nerds resort to to defend their opinions they’re literally saying "I am completely out of coherent defences for my opinion so I’m just going to state that it’s not legal for you to arrest me for it" am i supposed to respond with "its ok im not a cop" or what i dunno
"The most difficult thing I had to achieve in this film was creating the fabric for the Captain America Stealth Suit. The Russos were very specific that they wanted a suit that was made of textured, woven, hard fabric like a Kevlar and not a printed stretch suit like you see over and over again in these films. But in reality it needed to be made of a stretch fabric that would allow movement and comfort, as well as the ability to be constructed into a more realistic military type trouser and protective top. I went through many incarnations of printed textures on stretch which then posed a whole new set of challenges and problems. The HD cameras made raised textures strobe or moiré. So finding the right one became a trial. Then the printing ink would shine like plastic, which I disliked. It took four months of research and development to create a texture that seems so simple and was yet, so complicated.” - Judianna Makovsky
Wow yeah, you’re totally right, I suppose saying that he was alive for those three years between it being formed and him freezing was totally unreasonable and wrong, and I mean it’s not like there were any such thing as furloughs, nope, it was just five straight years of fighting Nazis without a break for him, IT’S NOT LIKE FURLOUGHED SOLDIERS EVER WOULD’VE GONE TO A BASEBALL GAME no you’re right I’m the uncultured swine here my mistake.
yo okay that tagger is actually outright wrong for MCU because Steve got hella rejected 4F for a couple of years
according to the MCU wiki Steve didn’t actually successfully join and get Erskine’s serum until June 1943; subsequently he was a USO performer across the US and not actually a soldier on the front for like, five months. Just to make sure this was still cool beans, I asked wiki the dates for the league and it started up May 30, 1943. i think this means Steve could have gone to games both pre- and post-serum, you know, in between kicklines and grinning with shy pride at his own propaganda films. Maybe the girls dragged him to see a game—can you imagine Captain America in the stands with all his back-up dancers and they’re all yelling louder than he is HEY BATTER BATTER WHOOP
Reblogging in part for the extra info, but mostly because if the idea of one of the chorus girls in Steve’s act having a sister in the AAPGBL and Steve all hopeful about maybe getting her autograph doesn’t make your heart do completely treacherous things, I don’t know what to tell you.
Fic where all of the Avengers are trying to teach tech stuff to Steve (especially Tony who just gets so annoyed at his apparent tech incompetence) but he just seems super hopeless at it until one day one of them stumbles across a youtube account that’s filled with a series of videos titled ‘How Long Can I Keep My Friends Convinced I Have No Idea What Technology Is’ and it turns out he’s been gaming them for YT hits for months.
