This is Mary Seacole, a Jamaican nurse who saved lives during the Crimean War only to be rewarded with a century’s worth of ignorant comparisons to Florence Nightingale. The woman is a boss.

While S.H.I.E.L.D. regrets that Agent Barton’s responsibilities re: saving the Earth kept him once again from the Olympic trials, he is not to use cardboard cutouts of the Italian Archery Team as practice targets.]

Poor Barton

From Cracked.com:In 1942, when he was just 12 years old, Arkady Kamanin begged his dad, a commander and decorated war hero in the USSR Air Force, to  let him enlist, so Arkady’s father let him join up as a mechanic.  After mastering the ins and outs of Soviet planes, Arkady got promoted to flight mechanic and navigating officer. That’s the guy who’s just supposed to sit in the back seat of the plane and fix anything that goes haywire, but while on a mission in 1944, Arkady’s pilot was hit by a bullet. Arkady mustered up courage and, with some guidance from the crew on the ground, he landed the plane perfectly. This understandably impressed Arkady’s dad, who then allowed his son to go into flight training. Two months later, Arkady became the youngest fighter pilot in World War II.  
 Once, while returning from a patrol flight, Arkady spotted the smoking wreck of a Soviet U-2 plane, landed his own craft while enduring heavy German fire and rescued the pilot, along with the sensitive information he was carrying. He was awarded the Order of the Red Star, the Soviet version of the Congressional Medal of Honor. 
By war’s end, Arkady had racked up an impressive list of commendations. He received “two combat Orders of the Red Star, the Order of the Red Banner, the Medal for the Victory Over Germany in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945, the Medal for the Capture of Budapest and the Medal for the Capture of Vienna.” All by age 14.

Well that puts my achievements into perspective… 

^ yup.

This is my solar system. It’s made with rubber bands. Pluto was a planet growing up, so it gets to be in there. Charon is along for the ride too. This is my solar system and I stand by my choices.

What if Disney did a movie, that was animated like it was a moving Impressionist painting? I did this in an attempt to conjure up some imagery!

originally this is what they had planned for tangled. or well they wanted to give it an oil painted look.
