Favourite moment from Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Can we take a moment to realize that out of ALL THINGS TO POSSIBLY WATCH Steve watches Saw?
No. Guys, no. This is not a reference to Saw.
It’s a reference to the 1983 movie WarGames.
The entire joke is that in WarGames, the main character accidentally connects with a government supercomputer that controls all the U.S. military arsenal. The computer asks him “Shall we play a game?” and what the guy thinks is a game is the computer trying to start WWIII between the United States and Russia.
In this scene, Steve and Natasha are accessing a hidden supercomputer with a mysterious flashdrive seemingly controlled by an AI. Natasha references WarGames and the potential of accidentally starting a war by accessing the computer.
That’s it, guys. That’s the joke. It’s a really funny joke. Whereas a Saw reference would literally make zero sense in this scene.
Just one more reason why Natasha Romanoff is awesome. These guys could easily have helped her get out from under these poles, which would have saved precious time. She sends them away. She doesn’t want them anywhere near a hulking out Bruce. Because she’s already endangered enough people with getting him on board and she’ll be damned if she takes two men more with her into death.
And she’s still afraid as fuck. The look on her face when they leave hurts. Because she knows she’s probably just signed her own death sentence.
[And she also knows, Clint would have taken a big dump on her orders and helped her anyway if he’d been here and not brainwashed by some crazy-ass alien with Daddy issues.]
If someone ever tells you a certain song is important to them you should turn it up and lay on your bed and close your eyes and really listen to it even if its 10 minutes long because at the end you will know that person much better I think
My love for this post is unbelievable.
But the flirting’s over now, Sherlock. I’ve shown you what I can do, I cut loose all those people. All those little problems, even thirty million quid just to get you to come out and play. So take this as a friendly warning, my dear: back off.
so it’s been pretty much confirmed that mary’s going to die at some point in the series
so i ask, nay implore once again
what the hell are they going to do with the baby?
I’ve been thinking the exact same thing!
the only feasible options are:
- mary dies and john’s left with the baby
but i can’t see this happening because it’s a huge departure from the dynamic of the show. as much as they like to change things up it seems kind of insane that they would completely change john and sherlock’s lives by doing this
- the baby dies with mary
completely unacceptable because they’re never going to kill a baby. everything in sherlock is planned and for a reason and they wouldn’t introduce the idea of the baby just to kill it off. it was introduced to become a plot point in series 4, so it won’t just die. also no writer is cruel enough to just kill a baby
- mary stays alive and stays with john and baby
i highly doubt this. not only has amanda very heavily implied that mary is leaving the show, but the writers do tend to stick to big plot points from the books and mary dying is a thing that happens because ultimately this is a story about a detective and his doctor and their adventures (and as much as they tried to make mary not get in the way, she did and she will).
plus i have a personal theory that mary was involved with moriarty in some way and his potential return will mean something big for her
- mary stays alive and runs away with baby
leaving john completely heartbroken and with no real closure for them. highly unlikely
- mary loses the baby
this would be the most heartbreaking, terrible ending to the baby story and although i think it’s a minute possibility, i still think that the baby is important for reasons other than to make us sad or make the characters sad. plus i think the baby’s fate will be intertwined with mary’s so just her losing the baby kind of becomes meaningless in the whole scheme of things. i doubt this will happen
- mary’s a double agent
she was told to marry john to get information about sherlock or something. when she saw that sherlock was starting to question her (orphans lot and all that) she created the baby as a ruse to keep john with her and distract sherlock. the baby never existed.
this is kind of cracky and i don’t think it would ever happen - far too contrived - but i thought i should include it as a possibility in case they go down this route
so basically, none of the options work properly. unless there’s one i’ve not thought of?

Cards Against Humanity.
I’m a big fan. Well, I bought this.
It’s great. It hold all of my shit. But it holds something else too.
If you have it, open your box.
You see how I started to tear away at the top of the box there?
Do it carefully.
There’s something in there. What could that be?
There’s a card.
There is a card literally hidden in the top of the box.
But what card?
I fucking love these people.

Until the mid-60s, the Aborigines came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aborigine meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.
