wasn’t tony one of the reasons why billy was imprisoned?? registration?? reality warper?? idk (i have not really that much of civil war and i’m not ready to)
It’s been a reeeaally long time since I’ve read Civil War, but that sounds possibly maybe vaguely familiar?? Imprisoning high schoolers sounds like something Civil War-era Tony would get involved with, anyway

i thought you were talking about comics for a second omf
their guns are a nice mix of chaotic magic and the wet dreams of the military-industrial complex
Ahh got the chance to thank Stark for sticking to his guns with Billy :’)
i hate the neologism “partner” for “person i’m dating”. i have no intention of being a cowboy and nobody will ever be a cowboy to me.
speak for yourself, slim. some of us cowpoke are lookin’ for the right partner to call our own… [twangs acoustic guitar softly as i stare towards the twinkling night sky] don’t see many of them stars where you’re from, eh, city boy? nah. didn’t think so.

I finally understand why Blackfish is so effective.
“With powerful emotion in an argument like that [Blackfish's], you don’t even need to have any logic. People will look right past the logic and focus on the images. Why? Because it’s easy. It’s easy to manipulate a large group of people using emotional and misleading footage and interviews. It’s easy to exploit a facility that does so much good for wild animals just because once upon a time their orcas came from the ocean.”
I think the real answer to the question of Why? is that the facts and documentation we have of serious, thoughtless, and short-sighted abuse of animals by Seaworld have put many of us way beyond the point of trying to excuse its actions already. You can use Logic 101 to argue for or against just about anything you want, but what that doesn’t do is actually erase the extremely compelling evidence — evidence that’s not just there in image or found in brief interviews — that these animals have been and continue to be emotionally and physically abused so a company can turn a profit. The documentary was far from the first to get that information out there, but because it’s been easily accessible, it has turned more heads. That’s a good thing.
That said, I’d be fascinated to see how you try to logically explain away animal abuse.
