I sometimes have to keep myself from commenting on posts about Steve Rogers and how his life was back in the day. Because WOW some folks don’t know anything about history!
Where are the posts about Steve snarling about Hoovervilles? How are people not taking advantage of how one of the reasons for the Great Depression was people buying shit they couldn’t afford on credit so he kinda is shocked that system IS STILL AROUND??? HOW ARE THE BANKS ALLOWED TO STILL DO THIS???
Where are the fics of him taking shit apart late at night when he can’t sleep because of how more efficient stuff is now! But he still hates starching his shirts. Why are there no machines for THAT. And yes Clint, we did have home appliances like washers back then. There were a lot of failed appliances that are no longer used today.
Don’t have him fumble with smartphones and the internet when he would LOVE seeing communication made easier! He saw his troops try to contact their families and how that was next to impossible. He would be so damn happy people can skype family on the other side of the world!
Imagine him bringing home some rabbits or pigeons to eat for supper one day. What do mean people don’t raise livestock in their apartments anymore? Not everyone can live on a farm for fresh meat Tony.
Imagine him FREAKING THE FUCK out of how BIG chickens are in the meat section. Because they are three times the size of what they were when he was a kid. But they sure don’t taste the same. None of the meat is the same. I mean he probably rarely ate meat. Some of it is better because of regulations. IMAGINE Hawkeye trying to freak Steve out when they get hotdogs and they’re a lot better than he remembers. Clint mentions it’s because they don’t throw rats in the vats anymore.
Just imagine historically accurate Steve. Imagine. Imagine him making shit up to fuck with Tony and Clint.
