Big man in a suit of armour. Take that off, what are you?
Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.
I know guys with none of that worth ten of you. I've seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you.
I think I would just cut the wire.
Always a way out... You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.
A hero? Like you?... You're a lab rat, Rogers. Everything that you are came out of a bottle!
Put on the suit. Let's have it out.
While actually planning on doing some form of engineering in college, until then, I’ve a huge pool of resources to keep myself occupied and informed, in the form of the internet. So, here’s my study list:
I think that much should keep me busy for a while, even if I can’t actually make a lot of the projects due to a lack of matierials… hopefully, I can rectify this soon, and actually have a go at building some stuff!
Not ready for a full on Iron Man suit yet? Well, while your planning it, here is a little tutorial for making a chain mail tunic to help protect you as you fight baddies. Could be a good idea for under joints in your preliminary suits/prototypes, to protect any weak spots or vulnerable areas left unprotected.
Well, as I’ve spent the last few years being super confused as to what choices I should make with my life (should I study English? Physics? Become an Electronic Engineer?). Then the other day, while watching Iron Man 2 for the seventeenth time, I realised that Tony Stark is like, amazingly epic. I’ve decided the way to go is to find a role model I aspire to be like, then follow whatever path that will lead to this success. Tony Stark is this role model. Sure, quite a lot of what he had is part of his upbringing: his fathers company for one, and also his fathers knowledge. But is it possible to try and learn your way to his position? Can you teach yourself how machines work, how to manipulate computers to do your bidding, how to build anything and everything?
Yes, some may argue that he is a super-hero, and fictional. True, not every situation in his life can be replicated, but I’,m sure as hell going to try, and invite you to follow my progress/failings. Others may argue the fact that Tony Stark is a middle-aged (but well fit) man, while I am a sixteen year old girl. I do not want to be a middle-aged man, I want to be a girl version. Which would kind of be even more ass-kicking, since stereotypes still exist about girls becoming mechanical engineers. So what? I can make my Iron Lady suit pretty if I want to. It can still shoot like hell, and take a beating.
Also, the fact I live in Ireland, which isn’t exactly the technological paradise to be creating my future in, could hold me back a little. But I was born in america, and have citizenship, so that’s always an option.
So, here we go, ready for the journey of a lifetime?
