so I guess it’s come out that the Ant-man movie is about Scott Lang and not Hank Pym.
Which means no Jan.
And no Ultron.
welp, there goes any potential interest I had in the movie. :/
NO!! AAAAGHH NONONONONONONO D: Is this confirmed? I can’t believe they would choose to make a movie about a minor character no cares about instead of introducing the other two founding Avengers in the MCU :/ wow if that happens my interest in the MCU will probably die completely. Avengers without Jan is no Avengers for me.
He looks like the biggest sweetest most kind and generous person in the world
‘Poorest president’ donates 90% of his salary
How’s this as a man of the people: The president of Uruguay, José Mujica, has earned a nickname, “el presidente mas pobre” (translation: “poorest president”). The 77-year-old recently admitted to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo that he donates almost all of his presidential salary, making him the poorest, or, as Univision pointed out, most generous pre
sident, in the world. El presidente explained he receives $12,500 a month but keeps only $1,250. The public servant told the newspaper, “I do fine with that amount; I have to do fine because there are many Uruguayans who live with much less.” He and his wife—a senator who also donates part of her salary—live in a farmhouse in Montevideo. His biggest expense is his Volkswagen Beetle, valued at $1,945. Perhaps not surprisingly, under the former guerrilla fighter, who was elected in 2010 as a member of the left-wing coalition, the Broad Front, the country has become known for being one of the least corrupt on the continent. Mujica has no bank accounts and no debt, and he enjoys one thing money can’t buy: the companionship of his dog, Manuela. The Uruguayan is not the first president to donate his salary. U.S. President John F. Kennedy, who came from wealth, donated his salary when in office, as did President Herbert Hoover. Hoover, who grew up poor, decided to never accept money for public service, so he could not be accused of corruption.
there are few who are truly worthy of leading the people, and even less who happen to be holding public office. here’s one, tho…
It’s because he fucking knows
Oh, gosh. I just want to hug him. The world could use more people like this man.
Over 130 people were killed by gunfire in my city (São Paulo) in the past TWO WEEKS. I just… da fuck? Seriously, living all my life in a metropolis of an underdeveloped country got me pretty used to violence, poverty and glaring social imbalances, but this is getting really fucking extreme even for me. There’s a legit civil war happening right now between the government and drug dealers. Innocent bystanders are getting hurt in the process. I’m actually becoming afraid of walking the same streets as regular cops because they are getting target. And killed. It’s just sad.
And we’re supposed to be hosting fucking World Cup in 2014 *crieslaughs*

I am One-eyed. I am called Highest, and True-Guesser.
I am Grimnir, and I am the Hooded One.
I am All-Father, and I am Gondlir Wand-bearer.
I have as many names as there are winds,

i had a pretty bad day today, so i decided to draw something that might cheer me up.drawing fanart that actually makes sense is too mainstream
tech brushes were made by the awesome z-design @deviantart
OH GOSH LOOK AT THIS PERFECTION!!!
Still, I vehemently believe that Tony’s favorite band is Rush. It’s perfect for the sci-fi geek. No one can tell me otherwise >D
Government crackdown on mining protest in Peru escalates.
A fifth person has died in this protest against the US majority-owned gold mining project, the largest-ever in Peru, that Andean people say will threaten their water supply. They have been protesting this mine for eight months now. The past two days have seen a violent crackdown by police, led by President Humala. From Reuters:
Humala took office a year ago urging mediation to solve hundreds of disputes nationwide over natural resources, but has lost patience with protesters and has suspended civil liberties to curb demonstrations at least three times.
Oscar Valdes, who led the last violent crackdown in November while he was interior minister, has since been promoted to prime minister.
Andean people protest against Newmont Mining’s Conga gold project during a march near the Cortada lagoon in Peru’s region of Cajamarca November 24, 2011. Peru’s prime minister on December 2, 2011, said Newmont Mining must set aside money to finance social projects and any environmental damage as a precondition for moving forward on a stalled $4.8 billion gold mine project. Opponents of Newmont Mining’s project refused to end their rallies, saying Peru must permanently cancel the proposed mine after temporarily halting work on it to avert violence. Protesters and farmers say the mine would cause pollution and hurt water supplies by replacing a string of alpine lakes with artificial reservoirs.
According to Reuters, there are some 200 such environmental protests in Peru right now that “threaten to delay billions of dollars in planned mining and oil projects.”
The president of Peru declared a state of emergency yesterday, suspending all civil liberties to try to stop the protest that’s managed to drive out Newmont, the American company behind the $4.8 billion gold mining project.
