“ Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves. ” - Emma Watson's speech at UN Women’s HeForShe launch in NYC

So one of Natasha's top skills is being able to psyche people out and trick them, right? She does it to everyone... everyone except Bruce Banner, who actually manages to psych her out. Do you have any thoughts on that?

mcumeta:

I find the Bruce and Natasha dynamic especially awesome, given his backstory.

You’re right about Natasha and manipulation etc. She can do it by force too, but mostly, she uses her image and gender as her greatest weapons to confuse, pacify, and manipulate mostly men. Women too, yes, but men are more prone to underestimate her because she’s dinky-small and pretty.

However, Bruce’s backstory comes from a place of betrayal (in MCU-verse at least). People he trusted double-crossed him. I can’t remember the exact details, but I think he was lied to about the gamma-ray experiments, so he tested it on himself because he wasn’t aware of the risks. He became the Hulk because people deceived him. He ended up on the run and hunted across the globe by them, attacked when he thought he was safe, tormented, and driven away from the people he cared about so they wouldn’t get hurt.

And the first thing Natasha does - in his view - is deceive him by sending the small child to lure him in. She may be doing it with the best intentions, trying to keep him calm and passive, but Bruce has been played before and he doesn’t like it.

Look at how she’s dressed in the first scene with him: shawl and skirt and feminine. She says she’s unarmed and without backup. She’s all sweet and gentle smiles. She’s passive and calming and gentle. But she’s also the person who not only showed up in the place he thought he was isolated and safe, but she tricked him into meeting her.

Given Bruce’s quite understandable paranoia, this is not a man who will take kindly to manipulation. She’s tricked him once with the girl, and he knows that was a stupid, amateur mistake to fall for it. He’s already suspicious anyway. So she looked harmless? So what? There are people who said they’d help him who looked harmless. You can’t manipulate a man who already anticipates the worst about you.

As for Natasha being psyched out, it isn’t Bruce that scares her. It’s what Bruce can become. She manipulates peoples’ perceptions and emotions. She plays people. But how do you manipulate something that is - for want of a better description - “a giant green rage monster”?

Natasha is all about the control: self-control and exerting some level of control over the behaviour of others to do what needs to be done. The Hulk is about as far from that as is humanly possible. She’s afraid of the Hulk because it’s something that she has never experienced before, something that can’t be played, and something that is completely out of control, and when it comes down to it, if she had to resort to physical violence, can’t be stopped.

Looking at it that way, the Hulk is quite literally Natasha’s polar-opposite: masculine, violent, primitively aggressive, senseless, and brutal. He is everything that she is not, and the extremes of those differences, the fact she knows she can’t do a thing to stop him if he decides to kill her, is why she fears him. Natasha is never one to back down from a fight, but when it comes to the Hulk, she runs for her life, because she knows there’s nothing she can do - with wits or violence - that can stop him.

"We’re preparing you for the real world"

I don’t meant to alarm you but

the real world has calculators

I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.

New Galactic Supercluster Map Shows Milky Way’s ‘Heavenly’ Home

A new cosmic map is giving scientists an unprecedented look at the boundaries for the giant supercluster that is home to Earth’s own Milky Way galaxy and many others. Scientists even have a name for the colossal galactic group: Laniakea, Hawaiian for “immeasurable heaven.”

The scientists responsible for the new 3D map suggest that the newfound Laniakea supercluster of galaxies may even be part of a still-larger structure they have not fully defined yet.

"We live in something called ‘the cosmic web,’ where galaxies are connected in tendrils separated by giant voids," said lead study author Brent Tully, an astronomer at the University of Hawaii at Honolulu.

Galactic structures in space

Galaxies are not spread randomly throughout the universe. Instead, they clump in groups, such as the one Earth is in, the Local Group, which contains dozens of galaxies. In turn, these groups are part of massive clusters made up of hundreds of galaxies, all interconnected in a web of filaments in which galaxies are strung like pearls. The colossal structures known as superclusters form at the intersections of filaments.

The giant structures making up the universe often have unclear boundaries. To better define these structures, astronomers examined Cosmicflows-2, the largest-ever catalog of the motions of galaxies, reasoning that each galaxy belongs to the structure whose gravity is making it flow toward.

"We have a new way of defining large-scale structures from the velocities of galaxies rather than just looking at their distribution in the sky," Tully said.
