I love Fringe. Stargate. Trek. Wars. The Avengers (and especially Agent Phil Coulson). Movies with explosions. 1980s cartoons. Guys with big noses.
Feige confirms Avengers 2 will finally present the backstory of Winter Soldier co-star Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, as well as lay the foundation for a possible solo movie for the Russian superspy. ‘We start filming the next Avengers film at the end of March. Widow’s part in that is very big. We learn more about her past and where she came from and how she became who she became in that film. The notion of exploring that even further in her own film would be great, and we have some development work with that.’
Alright listen up dweeb. We’re going to talk about the real star of this issue since no one else fucking will. Sit down Keller (I blurred your face because you’re not the focus here) and learn from the fucking master.
That’s right, Jubilation Mother Fucking Lee.
Okay, yes, I get it, the X-Kids are getting focus again, that’s great. But let’s talk about Jubilee here. We’re going to talk about her leading this whole damn mission here. Look at her. Look at how business she is about this whole thing. That look on her face says “Okay, yeah, cute prank Pixie, but we got lives to save. Look sharp.” Because Jubilee has done this song and dance before. As in Generation X (oh hey Wood wrote those issues!) and as Wondra. Jubilee knows what stupid distractions do when you’re on a mission. They get you freaking killed. She’s lost Warriors because of it. And so these kids are thinking they can stop some Sentinels and have a little fun and she reels them right back in to business mode. Bling! wants to have a problem with Mercury being ground crew? Too damn bad, you do what you’re told solider. Jubilee keeps a cool head, dishes out sound commands and doesn’t take crap from everyone. Even Karima is under Jubilee’s orders.
This is important. This is important because it’s the first time the X-Men have trusted her to lead a mission and she is counting on these kids to be competent enough to get this done. Because she knows they can do it. Because she was in their shoes once and now she’s running this show. And she doesn’t flinch. She doesn’t falter. She gets in there and makes sure they get work done. She sees people’s strengths and weaknesses and utilizes them, sending them where they need to go.
Ladies and gentlemen. Today was truly Jubilee’s issue and an extremely important one for her. And it is extremely disappointing to see a lack of talk about why this is so important for her as a character.
Because she’s not a kid anymore, and she sure as hell isn’t a joke (consider she took a direct Sentinel blast and kept giving orders).
Today was Jubilee’s issue.
Top 5 misconceptions about evolution: A guide to demystify the foundation of modern biology.
Here is an infographic to help inform citizens. From my experience most people who misunderstand evolution are actually misinformed about what science is and how it operates. That said, here are five of the biggest barriers faced when one explains evolution - I have faced these and they are documented in the literature.
I hope you can build on my work and improve the communication between the scientists and the public.
Want to do more? If you want to donate to the cause of science education I suggest the National Center for Science Education http://ncse.com, your local university, or an equivalent organization. Volunteering at schools and inviting scientists into classrooms are two ways to encourage an informed society. Attend hearings if school boards start questioning evolution’s role in public curriculum. Raise a storm if anyone tries to ban science. Plus, it never hurts to reblog a well made evolution post.
Thank you followers for all your support!

So hey, #education…
I love these. Love them. And for a great cause.
Happy National Library Week!

The top photo is the outside of an abortion clinic. The bottom photo is a Nazi gas chamber. Eerily similar, aren’t they? The biggest difference is that far more human beings have died inside of abortion clinics than ever died inside of gas chambers.
It’s time to stop the killing. Stand against human abortion. Stand for Life.
See the comparison from the inside.
Things you should not do: Compare abortion to the genocide of 11 million people during the Holocaust, gas chamber or otherwise.
"Those who relate [abortion] to the Holocaust prove that they do not know what the Holocaust was.” -Elie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor
