    As a socially responsible scientist I hereby undertake:

    1. Not to use my scientific knowledge or status to promote practices which I consider dangerous.

    2. Not to conceal from the public any information about the general nature of my research and about the dangerous uses to which it might be put.

    3. Not to conceal from the public any information about the real identity — and degree of public accountability — of those who finance or control my research.

    4. To explain to the public the general nature and possible uses of research conducted by private or State bodies over which there is little or no public control.

    5. To warn the public about such organisations that conceal information about the possible dangerous outcome or uses of their research.

    I consider it my duty, as a socially responsible scientist, to honour this pledge, whatever the personal inconvenience or risk involved.

    Anonymous asked: Um. Clint makes Steve and Bucky read Harry Potter. The Avengers all have very, very strong opinions about which house they get sorted into. Bucky thinks he's a Slytherin, but Steve says he's a Hufflepuff through and through.

    "This isn’t a legitimate classification system," said Steve angrily, throwing the book onto the couch next to Clint. "This is bullshit. They’re children, for cripe’s sake.”

    Clint’s eyebrows rose to comical levels.

    "You can’t just isolate different children or—or— or try to predetermine their characters at age eleven," Steve said, thoroughly angry. "And you certainly can’t condemn an entire fourth of your school’s population to a villainy house, what the hell is that?”

    He started to pace.

    "As if people never change! As if there’s no moral or ethical growth after age eleven!

    Bucky reached over Clint and picked up the book. Clint gave him a look and he shrugged.

    "Hell, if it makes Steve this angry, I gotta check it out," he explained.

    "This isn’t a basis for education!" Bucky shouted. "Where are the art classes, huh? Kids this age should have access to art classes."

    "Exactly!" shouted Steve. "Maybe a little less institutionalized racism and a little more arts education, am I right?"

    Clint buried his head in his hands.

    It sounds crazy but one of my favourite parts about Japan was stationery shopping.

    There were aisles filled with a rainbow array of pens and markers at ridiculously low prices. With my favourite Pilot pens priced at 105 yen (which is like $1.30AUD), I may have bought um, about fifteen? 

    And the erasable Pilot Frixion ballpoint pen I bought has definitely proven handy. 

    this looks like heaven and no you’re not crazy at all
