The Captain America/Puerto Rico pic  AND Marvel’s majestic response. lol

One small problem with that argument — the Puerto Rican flag was designed in 1898.

It was outlawed until 1952 — Puerto Rico was forced to fly only Spanish flags until 1898, and then only American flags until 1952.

The Puerto Rican flag is actually based on the Cuban flag, designed in 1848:

Just reverse the blue and red in Cuba’s flag and you get the Puerto Rican flag (this similarity was intentional).

As for Cuba, before people start saying that they stole their design from the U.S., their design incorporates three blue stripes, representing the three parts that the country was divided during the independence wars, central, occidental, and oriental areas of the country, and two white stripes symbolizing the purity of the patriotic cause. The red triangle stands for the blood shed to free the nation, which is placed where the star is, symbolizing the sky turned red from the blood shed in battle. The white star in the triangle stands for independence.

In the U.S., the stars represent independence and the stripes represent the original 13 colonies. And of course we stole our 1977 design from the East India Company and this flag which dates back to 1707:

There’s just not a lot of creativity in flag making. Everybody just steals designs and ideas off of each other.

Incidentally, Marvel’s response is also incorrect. The first issue of Captain America went on sale on December 20, 1940 (with the cover date of March 1941), so there’s no way that the Captain’s look was designed the year after the comic was released.

And you’ll notice, on the cover, that Captain America has more than three red stripes. They wrap around him.

Everyone involved stole their design, but Puerto Rico stole theirs from Cuba, and Marvel stole theirs from the American flag.— who stole their design from the East India Company.

And as long as I’m posting a bunch of flag images, here’s how the U.S. flag, with its then-48 stars, looked when Captain America was designed (Alaska and Hawaii were not states until 1959):

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

Bunny falls asleep

bun didn’t actually fall asleep!! bunnies flop over like this when they feel safe and comfortable in their environment. they rarely stretch out and lay down because they’re prey animals, so when ur bun does completely lays on their side or their back, it means they feel 10000% safe around you
