Do you have words worth spreading? Wise words?
You can be happy and sad, miserable and still have all of your needs met. I think life has a very dual nature about it and that a lot of times as humans we’d like to focus on just one thing at a time but it doesn’t work exactly like that. Everyone feels hundreds and hundreds of things a day, and it can be hard to really consider all of those feelings but it’s still very important.
Are you courageous?
I’d like to think that I would be if I had to be for someone else but I don’t think I am courageous or adventurous or even really competent.
What do you appreciate?
Everything. My family used to be dirt poor and now we’re relatively well-off and I appreciate that fact and I do my best to sympathize with people who aren’t as fortunate as I am. I also appreciate the sky and the stars, flowers budding in early spring, atoms and planets. There is so much beauty in our universe, the only ugly I’ve ever seen is in humanity: Hate, bigotry, selfishness, greed, etc. I think that even though there is a lot of ugly in us as humans there’s even more potential for beauty and I appreciate that.
First off, the actors playing heroes didn’t make $200,000 for their parts, they made $2,000,000 at least and some of the actors in the “Avengers” film made up to $8,000,000 (not including RDJ.) I don’t know where Tumblr is getting 200k from, that doesn’t even kind of equal 2 million.
If the 200k number were true, that would mean that one guy in the [Avengers] film made 250 times more than everyone else in the film did. But even if this were true, they’d still be making $200,000 in a few months of work. Doctors are generally considered pretty well off, right? Well with the 200k number, that’s ten times what a lot of doctors in my area make in a year actually saving lives. But the “Avengers” actors were making 2 million, that’s 100 times what doctors in my area make a year.
I do think that all of the actors in “Avengers” should have been paid a bit more equally since their performances generally had about the same amount of screen-time, but RDJ knowingly made deals with Marvel that resulted in the pay difference. I doubt that he is actually upset that he made so much more.
If every actor in “Avengers” had been payed equally, they would only be able to pay 19 or so people. That barely covers all of the main characters and you have to understand that there are literally hundreds of people that were involved with the production of that film.
I’m not gonna say much more, I’m sure this post will receive some kind of hate but I really cannot sympathize with people that think getting paid 2 million dollars isn’t enough. The only reason that action-movie stars usually make double-digit millions in films is because they are generally the only big-name actor or actress in the film. That doesn’t hold true with “Avengers” where everyone was instantly recognizable for other major roles.
EDIT: I believe the posts on Tumblr with the 200k number are actually referencing this awful “article” here. You should always check with multiple sources before considering something fact especially if it’s something you see posted on Tumblr or the article you are referencing literally says the words “I wish RDJ was my BFF. Le sigh.” .
For some reason there are people on this site actually enjoy spreading misinformation and many people, including myself, have fallen victim to their lies at one point or another. There is no shame in that, I think for the most part people are honest, and giving them the benefit of the doubt is human. The only shame is in being the one to start a chain of misinformation or lying to someone for the sake of personal gain.
I keep seeing posts about dress codes and how they’re ass-backward and sexist but none of the dress codes I’m seeing are even sort of sexist. They require both boys and girls to both cover the same parts of their bodies and their undergarments. There are more articles of clothing made for females than for men that expose parts of the body so of course there’s going to be more mention of different kinds of tops and bottoms when it comes to women’s clothing.
And if you’re going to point out prom wear, guys have to cover even more of their bodies. It’s not sexist, they just want kids to be covered.
It’s been pointed out a number of times that once you get a job, you have no control over your dress anyway. Your future employer will get to dictate what you wear and how you wear it, so get over yourselves. Schools are supposed to prepare you for the future and I think that dress codes are one of the very few ways that they actually do that.
