The first thing Bucky did when he got his new arm was to throttle one of the HYDRA scientist who gave him the arm
For some reason that makes me smile amidst all the angst because I’m proud of Bucky. They were actually treating him fairly well here because they were fixing him and while he might arguably have been feeling like a trapped animal, it doesn’t seem like it. He takes too long considering what they did for me to think he’s not lucid. So yeah, get it Buck. Because they did their WORST to Bucky and he still was ornery enough to DO something like that. “Thanks for the metal arm that I DIDN’T WANT. I HOPE YOU’VE GOT GOOD INSURANCE, MOTHERFUCKER, BECAUSE THIS BAD BOY IS WORKING PERFECTLY ON CRUSHING YOUR DAMN HYDRA LARYNX.”
Oh, Bucky (for whatever given value of “Bucky”) is definitely lucid here. Look at the way Stranglyman leans in and gestures while Bucky makes a fist - they’re explaining his new arm to him. “And as you can see — ARGARBLECHOKE”

These lacy creatures are part of a strange and beguiling ongoing series by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos, who has been wrapping ceramic animal sculptures in five-needle lace, handmade cotton crochet.
Each of the pieces “are ambiguously imprisoned/protected by a second-skin in crochet-work,” says Vasconcelos.
The sculptures themselves are the work of renown 19th century Portuguese artist Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro (1846-1905).
This recipe makes only two cookies.
Albeit, two big, beautiful cookies. When I found this recipe, I liked the convenience factor of only five minutes prep time, and I loved the notion that I wouldn’t end up with a whole batch of cookies tempting me at every turn. However, I was skeptical. Would they be as good as my favorite Tollhouse? As it turned out, this is an awesome recipe, and those two cookies are every bit as good as their big batch buddies!
I’ve made these twice. The first time around the cookies turned out great, but they didn’t have that ooey-gooey factor that I was hoping for. I made some changes for the second batch, which totally did the trick.
If you like cookies that rise and then don’t deflate too much, follow the recipe exactly. If you want cookies that look mine pictured, use 1/4 cup flour minus 1 teaspoon. After you form the cookies, refrigerate them until cold, then remove from refrigerator and bring back up to almost room temperature before you bake.
A clever recipe from No. 2 Pencil.
- 2 tablespoons room temperature butter
- 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- Pinch of kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 heaping tablespoons of semisweet chocolate chips (I chopped mine)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Blend softened butter, sugars, salt, and vanilla together by hand. Add egg yolk and stir again. Add baking soda and flour and stir until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Form cookie dough into two balls and place on baking sheet. The cookies will spread during baking, so make sure they are several inches apart. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
Remove baking sheet from oven and give the baking sheet a firm, but careful bang on the counter top. This will deflate the cookie and give it a perfect wrinkly appearance. (I found this doesn’t always work, but I banged the baking sheet anyway.)
Why are these names not weird to me at all
