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.

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.

Horses are amazing creatures and yet we subject them to this. The horse training, the unnatural gaits, being named Bubble Bath … Where does it end?

I think bubble bath is actually adorable haha!

I don’t see saddle seat a lot but it looks like the riders are sitting right on the horses’ kidneys? that can’t be at all comfortable…

^ yeah from the little I know they’re supposed to sit on the lower back.

well the only reason I mention it is because usually when I see photos of saddleseat the riders aren’t that far back, like for example the top left rider is sitting about where I normally see them but the bottom rider is way further back. I mean I realize these horses are built a bit differently so their center of gravity is in the middle of the back and thats where the rider is supposed to go, but I do know horse anatomy and the kidneys are right at the loin. I don’t have to be an expert in saddleseat to know where the weight of a rider would be uncomfortable/painful for a horse. I’m not saying all saddleseat riders do this obviously, just something I’m noticing from these photos. 

…and an actual saddleseat rider steps in!

You’re really not supposed to sit that far back…the rider in picture #4 has awful position, as does #2. It looks like both of them got thrown backwards by the horse’s strong movement. Your legs should be under your body, not all flung out like that.

Don’t look at a few pictures of not-so-perfect riders and make judgments on an entire discipline. Do your research, don’t just look at pictures on Instagram if you actually care to learn and have an open mind. I recommend reading Riding for Success by Gayle Lampe, and Saddle Seat Horsemanship by Smith Lilly. Or our “saddle seat bible,” Saddle Seat Equitation by Helen Crabtree.

yeah thats what I thought, and I was in no way making judgements about the discipline as a whole. like I said, from what I’ve seen of saddleseat the riders have never been that far back. if I have any issues at all with saddleseat it’s usually not about the placement of the rider.

something I noticed about movies with superheros/people with supernatural abilities, is that the mind-readers always get this flood of voices in their heads, but who thinks like that? I mean, sometimes I think in words but a lot of time time it’s just mental images. how does that work? do the mind-readers get something like a bunch of movies playing all the time? can they see it or just have audio and have to try to figure out what’s happening?

So a thing about hybrid vigor and a liger just came across and lemme tell you a thing; hybrid vigor does not happen every single time your cross different breeds/species. 

healthy examples of hybrid vigor can be found in: mules, mutt dogs, and cattle, though these can be UNHEALTHY if the good genes are not passed on. Selective breeding is always a gamble.

unhealthy examples: LIGERS. LIGERS ARE NOT HEALTHY. 

mutt dogs and cattle aren’t really hybrids though, since they’re the same species. Ligers are some of the most unhealthy animals I have ever seen. I’m not sure where this ‘hybrid vigor’ thing came from, but I’m betting it was a mislabel, like wolfdogs or something, which are not hybrids. mules are a good example of hybridization that worked out well, but I can’t think of any others except maybe those coywolves that have been popping up in the midwest but i don’t really know anything about those.
