This is literally from the video where this crusty asshole was yelling at two wheelchair bound people who were at his concert to stand up. I can’t stand him. He thinks he’s fucking anointed or some shit. As if his music is gonna heal them and make them walk. The entire crowd booed the two wheelchair bound people. Granted they didn’t know but you can’t assume everyone is able bodied. He’s such a dick.
I’m gonna stop you right there cause you have no idea what the fuck you’re talking about. As I was there.. and you were not. You’ve successfully been convinced by the media and their (twisted) version of what happened. I assume you never even saw the footage of it either? He did not yell at anyone, he performed the pre-planned “I want everyone to stand up for this song” bit and he specifically said unless you are disabled/are in a wheelchair then that is fine. He waited til he found out if they were disabled because the crowd was actually boo-ing them and telling them to stand up.. which probably confused him and he thought they were just being stubborn, and the second he found out they were wheelchair bound he said that’s fine and continued with the song. Get it right and stop reading perez hilton fucking articles cause let’s face it that guy amongst all other media sources just want to publicise Kanye in the worst way possible.
who cares lmfao!!!!
What did they tell him!!! What can we tell him to make him cry harder
OKAY, HOLD THE FUCK UP.
THIS IS WHAT THE MEDIA DOES TO POSTS AND SUCH.
YOU PEOPLE ARE LAUGHING AT THIS MAN. WHY. BECAUSE HE WAS BROUGHT TO TEARS? I’M SURE IF THIS MAN WAS GAY, YOU’D BE ALL OVER IT.
YOU’RE NOT GETTING THE WHOLE STORY.
THIS MAN ASKED HIS FOLLOWERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA A QUESTION WHEN HE SAW THAT HE HAD QUITE A LOT OF LGBT FOLLOWERS. HE SAID, “IF YOU COULD CHOOSE WHETHER TO BE GAY OR STRAIGHT, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?”
AND THE RESPONSES MOVED HIM. THEY FUCKING MOVED HIM. THAT’S WHY HIS CRYING. I’M SORRY, BUT IF YOU PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SHIT ON HIM WITHOUT GETTING THE WHOLE STORY, I CAN’T TALK TO YOU.
HIS QUOTES ARE LITERALLY:
"Sorry, guys… It’s just… It’s sad."
"So, don’t take my word for any of this. Listen to them."
"And if you think being Gay is a choice, and you want to hide behind the Bible, show me the verse where God says being gay is a choice."
HERE IS THE ARTICLE
AND HERE IS THE VIDEO
I, AS A LESBIAN, AM FUCKING DISAPPOINTED IN YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE GIVING HIM SHIT.
IN THE VIDEO,
HE FUCKING SAYS “This video is about a kid who came out to his parents, and their… Their response was horrific.”
THIS MAN IS SOMEONE WHO CARES
AND THIS MAN IS SOMEONE YOU’RE HATING ON .
GET THE WHOLE FUCKING STORY BEFORE YOU DECIDE WHO YOU INSULT. AND, MOST OF ALL, JUST KEEP YOUR SHIT TO YOURSELF UNLESS YOU’RE 100% SURE YOU WANT TO SAY IT.
/// rant over.
I hate the way some people preach about equality and treating everyone with respect but it’s deemed perfectly okay to insult and judge every single white male there is out there just because he is white and male, without even knowing the person inside.
Double standards at its finest.
literally amen to the last two comments on this though, so many of you who preach equality for all have so many double standards it’s ridiculous, stop being hypocritical and start practising what you preach.
look , i literally can’t stress how cute this deleted parks and rec scene is and im about to lose my fucking shit.
Im in love with Chris Pratt
This is SO cool that I just had to share.
you clever fuckers
my teacher used this today

One of the things I haven’t seen people talking about are Sam’s wings. For a portion of the scenes he’s flying in, you can see he’s controlling the wings manually with his hands. They’re basically an extension of his arms; if he wants to gain altitude, he basically flaps his arms to get it.
It’s more than that, though. The wings enable him to move with a very high degree of maneuverability, most likely by translating his subtle body language into movement. And Sam is good enough at it to be able to avoid anti-aircraft artillery fire and to dodge between aircraft at high speed.
But later, when he’s using both hands to fire guns, how is he controlling his wings? While the helicarriers are taking off, Sam is using both hands to fire machine guns. And while doing that, he flies down the the flight deck close enough to kick a guy in the chest, hover, turn around, and fire again. How is he doing that without manually controlling his wings?
That’s some really advanced tech, and that also means that Sam has had a lot of physical training. He’s unconsciously aware, like Natasha, like Steve, of his body and the rules of physics, which allow him to use a mechanical apparatus that allows him to fly exactly like a bird of prey does.
Seriously, rewatch the movie, and pay attention to Sam when he’s flying. He has to have the three-dimensional awareness of a pilot, the timing of a sharpshooter, and the physicality and body awareness of a gymnast. If you thought he was amazing before, you really had no idea how amazing he is.
This is great meta!
As for how he’s controlling them when he’s shooting; my theory has always been that the wing pack mechanism is made to read the signals from his contracting back muscles, for example when he needs to go left he tenses the left trapezius or when he needs to go in a roll he changes the angle of his shoulder. It throws off his accuracy a little, but his mobility is much more important in this case, especially if you bear in mind that while he is efficiently combat trained that isn’t his primary function as a paramedic. For this, his back muscles need to be very defined and he has more control and awareness of them than the average human.
Which makes this sequence all the more impressive, because it’s been years and he’s lost some of that definition, the mechanism against his back doesn’t feel like a second skin anymore, but something heavy and chafing and disobedient. And yet, he manages to operate them anyway. The sheer amount of training that would have to be endured to operate these, the falls and the scrapes. I bet by the end of training the Falcons all felt scrapped raw.
But in any case; my headcanon is that the wings themselves aren’t actually the most important part of his suit, because anyone with the right materials and some knowledge of engineering could put them together and in fact, this mechanism is the most valuable part. Knowing that they’re a product of Stark industries, I can’t help but wonder if the mechanism for control isn’t similar to what Tony uses to control the Iron man suit.
I’ll do another rewatch to confirm but I believe that when he pulls out the guns the wings go rigid and the engine goes into a hover type mode. He probably turns by twisting but He doesn’t gain full maneuverability and the ability to accelerate until the guns are away.
