    I like how before Carlos got actual lines everyone thought he was this super serious, dignified kind of scientist. Now we know he’s more of a “it’s science if you write it down” Mythbusters kind of scientist with high-tech umbrellas and a danger-meter.

    Steve Rogers, bisexual icon from the 50s onward-

    The yellowed-with-age letters preserved at the Smithsonian (much to Steve’s embarassment) express a powerful sensuality towards men and women-

    and especially touching are his correspondences with young people writing to Captain America for advice and to express admiration-  a good number come from young queer kids with no one else to turn to for advice, asking for reassurance from a symbol of heroism.
    Queer scholars for decades speculating about the likely homosexuality of Captain Steve Rogers from his letters and his biography- (as well as the collected letters of his friends and fellow soldiers)

    Contentious scholarship rising up arguing about the controversial subject of the sexuality of Captain America and the nature of his relationship with James Buchanan Barnes-

    Conservative scholars and pundits bewailing how the liberals want to pervert a national icon for their liberal agenda-

    Queer people finding the Collected Letters of Steve Rogers in their library and being blown away- how did no one mention Captain America was gay?  Wait wait, people think he’s straight? How do people miss this??

    And queer teens buying the book used, coverless, and keeping it with them to read when they feel alone-
    dog-eared pages for the correspondence between Steve and Bucky—- heart squeezing when they think about how they must have felt about eachother

    Scholars and pundits all creaming themselves when Steve comes back to life- everyone wanting him to represent for their cause… 
    Paparazzi taking photos of him and Nat, of him and Sam- tabloid journals making insinuating references

    And Steve getting asked on some TV interview if he can comment on the rumors about him and Sharon Carter and speculation that he’s ”OTHERWISE INCLINED lolol-“ (the interviewer looks smarmy and fully expecting Steve to vehemently deny such SLANDER—)

    And Steve brightly (and somewhat agressively) says that he’s actually very happily in a relationship with Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, though he considers himself bisexual 

    And Steve and Sam getting interviewed in OUT and the Advocate-
    and eloquently articulating the need for lgbtqia role models and why it was important for him to be open about his relationship and loud about asserting that he is BIsexual-

    Ahhh Steve Rogers bisexual icon

    Girls pose by a jail that recalls the witch trials of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. Photo taken in 1945.

    I recently learned that the water in Salem was contaminated with the fungus from which LSD is derived and a legitimate theory for the whole thing is that everyone in the town was tripping balls 

    This might be the greatest thing ive ever seen on the internet

    We did a whole massive thing on this in history. I believe the fungus in question is called Ergot and it’s terrifying. It makes your muscles spasm so when they had seizures that was the reason, not because they were possessed. One woman had to be strapped to her bed, she was seizing so bad. And, like ‘theybuildbuildings’ said, it had the same effects as LSD; as soon as you touch it, let alone consume it, it messes with your entire system. The worst thing is, you practically always had a bad trip. Many complained about bugs crawling under their skin or monsters emerging from the shadows to scratch and bite at them until they were screaming. It was a horrendous thing and the worst part is, Ergot is still around. It grows on crops and, if your wheat isn’t properly treated, it can be eaten and you’ll most likely experience the same as the women of Salem. 

    god i love history

    This is hella cool and almost correct… 

    The effects on the people of Salem were probably from consuming bread with the fungus in it, not from contaminated water. And apparently rye is way more commonly affected than wheat. In fact, often the members of the clergy were able to afford nicer bread made from wheat and thus were not as commonly affected.

    You don’t go on a spasm-y trip just by touching it. You have to consume it for weeks, which results in chronic poisoning. ( If you stop eating it early enough, you may recover. So when people suffering from these “demonic possessions” took refuge in churches and stopped eating low-grade rye bread they were sometimes miraculously healed. 

    More interesting facts:

    Ergot poisoning can result in convulsions & hallucinations, or it can cause gangrene, depending on which group of active alkaloids are present. (Horrifying, either way.) It killed a lot of people in Europe in the Middle Ages. 

    In Europe, often there was a strong correlation between wet summers (which provide ideal conditions for ergot) and reports of witchcraft/ possession. And in Norway and Scotland, records of witch persecution are only found in areas where rye was grown and used to make bread.

    And I just learned right now that one author dude translated the word “Beowulf” as “barley-wolf” which could indicate a connection to ergot. The LSD-like effects could be a valid explanation for stories of Old Norse warriors going into the a sort of trancelike battle rage.

    (this is exactly the kind of stuff my herbology medicinal plants class is about, it’s so cool omfg. we had a lecture on ergot last week.)

    This is so cool
